Sick of playing the age old game of looking for something to watch for an hour only to then put on something I've already seen.

Any good shows or movies out there that you guys think are worth a watch?

That's an old post but :

https://ici.tou.tv/demain-des-hommes/S01E01?lectureauto=1

This is one of the best shows I've ever watched. It's heavily hockey-oriented, but it also focuses on what it's like to be a junior hockey player with a family, etc. The matter is that it's only available in French, or with French subtitles, but I really recommend it.

Sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out one of these days. Is that link that you posted the outlet that you watched it from?

I just decide on what to watch based on what's the popular meme currently. I don't really like wasting my time on experimental series that 'may or may not be good'. I learned the hard way with Heroes.

Lord Of the Rings, The Hobbit, Star Wars (1-6, don't get me started on 7-9, I don't like them) I like old 50's and 60's sitcoms, more original then it's is nowadays with forced humor, The Andy Griffith show and Leave It To Beaver

Lol I forgot about this thread. I've seen the Tolkien adaptations as well as Star Wars (though I've never been a big fan). Can't say I've seen either of the shows you mentioned; not really a fan of older sitcoms.

I liked the older ones because of original humor, and they are quite clean episodes, though the occasional Seinfeld epi is awesome

I said this in belated response to another interesting thread in which you participated (Favorite Movies), but this time I'll say it directly to you since you clearly have a great take on film: try Big Night, with Stanley Tucci, Tony Shalhoub (as brothers operating an Italian restaurant in Brooklyn NY in the 1950's), Ian Holm as their "Caesar's Pizza" competitor, and Isabella Rossellini as the latter's wife.

I'll have to check it out. I've really liked Stanley Tucci in anything I've seen him in.

And there are two French romantic comedy films that would make my All-Time Top Ten List: And Now My Love (1974), where the two main characters don't actually meet until the very last scene, which contains one of the greatest sight gags in cinematic history, and Cousin, Cousine (1975), which was remade by Hollywood with Ted Danson and Isabella Rossellini (coincidence) as "Cousins" in 1989.

So I stick the oldies.......Bull, the Canadian series Murdock Mysteries, Survivor (I'm an addict since day one) and for news/education, GPS on CNN Sunday morning.

What did you think of "Goon" with Liev Schreiber?

It was a good movie, a little bit gory depending on what you like.
