    "Alone" on History Channel. Fascinating survivalism, to me at least.

    Planet Earth II

    So far it is everything one could possibly expect from it. Too bad there are only 6 episodes.

    Not watching any TV series at present, but I was watching a lot of Three Stooges episodes for a while.

    I am watching The X-Files. I really never watched it on its original run, so now I've decided to watch every episode in order. So far, I've watched Season One, Pilot to Darkness Falls. Overall impression: Better than anything currently on the air. It's nostalgic, in a way. To see hairstyles, computers, automobiles, and fashion from back then puts a smile on my face.

    Rillington Place - a three-part drama about 1940s/50s sex killer John Christie. Very atmospheric and Tim Roth excellent in the main role, as was Samantha Morton as Christie's ill-fated wife.

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    I like Gotham, the series about a very young Bruce Wayne before he became the Batman.

    I also like Tyrant, about a fictitious Middle Eastern country, its rulers, intrigue and terroristic attacks.

    Started watching season 2 of The Man in the High Castle. I'm not disappointed.

    I mostly watch Netflix and Amazon Prime and PBS. My favorites are Sherlock, Luther, Poldark, Doctor Who, Star Trek TNG and DS9, the Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, Broadchurch, the Wire, Deadwood, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Dark Matter, the Man in the High Castle, Justified, Firefly.

    Right now, my wife and I are trying out the Crown on Netflix. We will likely watch Victoria on PBS when it starts.

    I am a huge fan of David Tennant and Idris Elba - I loved Luther and Broadchurch (at least the first series) and the David Tennant Doctor Who. I don't watch much from the major American Networks - I dumped cable nearly 2 years ago now, and don't miss it at all.
