Looks like “ The Boys “ season 1 ..July, 2019 could be promising.
Finished "Deadwood"? Then you should watch this:
Looks like I’m not finished with Deadwood yet.
No! I’m still looking for it.
I’ve just upped my IMDb rating for Banshee to 9/10 as its so good. Cast, story line etc ..
The BR’s had Banshee Origins as special features. You can probably find them on YouTube. They’re a great compliment to the show, especially if you watch them placed in order between episodes.
From what I recall, they were on the DVDs that I rented from the library.
Did Banshee win any awards ?
It got one Emmy for special effects.
Least it got something.
They could restart Banshee with just Matt Servetto / Brock still playing the Sheriff. Servetto who was also in The Sopranos.
Banshee Come Again Soon.
We just finished watching the first two seasons. I didn't like the first few episodes but when things started to go wrong, I got hooked. It's pretty crazy, far fetched but very well written, cast, acted and directed. Great fun also.
I need Banshee, Hell on Wheels and Justified back on my life, somehow.
At least we're getting a Deadwood movie, over ten years later... maybe I shouldn't complain.
Deadwood..Lordy a miracle it’s happening, only. 2 hrs mind.
Season 1 of Banshee was powerful stuff.
Binged watch Outlander season 4, the other day. Excellent..stunning scenery. A couple of continuity errors like the missing shoes forest scene for example.
Always thought that was Vikings tv Series problem they never went to America just back and forth to England.
Fleabag? You're not offended by content or language and it's a surprisingly successful look at a vulnerable human.
Fleabag must be the most OMG show of all time. It's like The Good Ship Venus, every scene is more disgusting than the one before it.
City On A Hill. New series on Showtime with Kevin Bacon. Producers: Ben Affleck & Matt Damon. The first episode was spectacular! The Wire meets The Town.
City on a Hill (TV Series 2019– ) - IMDb
Don’t know who your referring to but I plan to watch it.
Watched “Fleabag “ season 1&2.
Pretty good. Season 1 the best
The Returned season 1&2 ( France )
Beautifully filmed, stunning location.
Well ploughing through a bunch of titles I got last weekend must have kept the best till end .,.being ASH vs Evil DEAD (1-3) l o r d y picked a winner with this fantasy horror funny joyride.
Cardinal, the Canadian crime series. I've just finished series three, which was the best yet. Don't expect an easy ride, though.
It’s won a lot of Canadian TV Awards.
I liked that very much as well. Eerie!
Yes, Gomorrah. Just binge watched the first three seasons over two weeks on DVDs I borrowed from the library, and I think I'm going to have to buy it (although season 4 starts this week on Sky Atlantic in the UK, and since I don't have Sky, I might wait to see if they do a four-season box set, it doesn't seem to be available on Netflix any more). Hopefully, season 4 won't suffer too much from the shock ending of season 3 (that's the best way to put that without it being a total spoiler).
It's maybe not quite as good as The Sopranos and The Wire, but it's certainly knocked my other longtime favourites Breaking Bad, The Shield and Deadwood down a place in my box set rankings. As Chazro says, it has that same great sense of location-as-character, as The Wire's west Baltimore, in this case the infamous Vele housing projects in Scampia, a suburb to the north of Naples, and you get all the messy detail and double dealing of mob life as The Sopranos... these guys make Tony's gang look like squabbling kids in kindergarten, they're so ruthless.
I also think that it is very well done. I read the book by Saviano several years ago.
You also might like the movie "Una vita tranquilla" (A quiet life) about an ex-mafioso living a new life in Germany until the past is catching up. One of the actors is the one who plays Ciro in Gomorrah.
I couldn't find a subtitled trailer:
Ciro is The Man. Even though he might just about be the evillest of all the evil so-and-sos in Gomorrah, I think I might have a bit of a man-crush on Ciro, just like I did with Stringer Bell in The Wire all those years ago. The episode in Bulgaria in season 3 where he achieves just a little bit of redemption was one of my favourites.
There's a nice summary of season 3 here…
Gomorrah Season 3 is dirty, dangerous and beautiful
