What are your favourite series to re-watch during the apocalypse?

Recommended Posts

With all the freed up view time, just wondering what people's recommendations are for some tv or mini-series?

 

We're going to go back and watch Shogun, but I'm trying to find one from the 90s called Crocodile Shoes with a UK actor Jimmy Nail thats really good but I can't find it anywhere.

Shogun is so awesome. & anyone who has time for novels, Clavell's Asian Saga is a damn fine read.

 

Shogun

Taipan

King Rat

Noble House

 

& some characters(or descendants) pop up in diff countries at interesting moments, to weave things together...

HBO just did a run of all episodes of Chernobyl, back to back on the weekend. About my 4th go-around and I still enjoyed it.

 

Fantastic series.

If you have Netflix, I really enjoyed the first season of 'The Witcher' with Henry Cavill (Superman) if you like fantasy, medieval https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Witcher_(TV_series). Also on there, I have been enjoying 'The Rain' a Danish made apocalyptic series. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rain_(TV_series)

Rewatch - Peaky Blinders

New watch - Boardwalk Empire

Boardwalk Empire is awesome. I watched all of the seasons when it first came out and then binge-watched the entire thing a couple year later.

 

Great performances from Steve Buscemi, Kelly MacDonald and Stephen Graham as Al Capone.

Oh yeah, and if you haven't already seen Watchmen, (the HBO series) now's the time.

I wouldn't call it a favourite, but I mentioned elsewhere that I binged season 1 of The Strain. Good enough to recommend, enough of a cliffhanger to consider watching season 2, and virus-like relevance to today's events.  

 

Breaking Bad    

 

Chernobyl

 

X-Flies [story arc]  

 

Fargo  

 

Still have not seen Sopranos. One day I'll start, but that 86 episodes equals ~65 hours of watching. Sounds like a lot.

Still need to watch Dark. Think that’s the next one to power through. Others on the never ending list:

 

The Wire

The Sopranos (stopped after season 4 or 5)


But who am I kidding? Back to Star Trek TNG.
