    I really only watch PBS and Netflix anymore. I don't have cable. Lately I have been watching Longmire, Prison Break, and Last Man Standing. I watched the Crown and Stranger Things. My kids liked the Netflix Series of Unfortunate Events. On PBS, I enjoyed Poldark, Sherlock, Downton Abbey, and now Victoria - but not as much as the Crown on Netflix.

    I quite like her as the companion of the 11th and 12th doctors on Doctor Who (big fan of Dr. Who), but I agree that I'm not quite sure whether I like her in this role. She is growing on me a bit. But I did read of complaints that she was just a bit too pretty to pull off a believable Queen Victoria. I do like Rufus Sewell, though. I would probably like this series more had I not first seen The Crown on Netflix - I'm afraid it beats Victoria out in terms of period dramas of long-lived female British monarchs.

    I'm still watching The X-Files. I've gotten to season 3 ep. 20 Jose Chung's "From Outer Space" Hilarious and brilliant at the same time. The cricket photo Vaneyes posted earlier in the thread spurred an ancient memory. Has anyone ever watched the miniseries Bodyline? I looked it up on YouTube and it stars a very young Hugo Weaving.

    I was thinking of this:



    Btw, I've lived in Canberra (and Sydney and Melbourne). And the public service is rather like the Village.

    Star Trek: Voyager. Decent but nowhere near as good as The Next Generation or Deep Space Nine. Still can't decide if I like Neelix or not.

    I watch Eastenderm on the BBC from time to time, can be a load of rubbish.

    I've finally started watching "Boardwalk Empire" and it is fantastic, far superior to "Sopranos" in my opinion. I say this because David Chase who created "Boardwalk Empire" was one of the head writers of "Sopranos". Anyway I highly recommend BE if you can get HBO, such great writing & wonderful casting, I just got to the last season ( there are 5 with 13 episodes a piece) and I'm trying to savor it (unlike I did with "Breaking Bad".. mistake) with just one a night. Go check it out if you can.

    Boardwalk Empire is great.
    It would be great if some Sopranos turned up in Boardwalk Empire since they are both set in New Jersey.
