even though I am still working, I am watching Deep Space Nine. I never watched all of the episodes and I think I stopped watching it at some point during the original broadcast. So .........Dax and Worf married? I really never knew that, seems out of character for her.

That's definitely one that I didnt finish.   That's a great idea to revisit. I wonder if it's on prime.


We have been binging Monk and Psych.  Both are pretty funny and lighthearted... very good for a laugh and not too serious. I missed both of these while they were on air. 

I think it might be time to watch the xfiles again...

Did anyone see monk and or psych?

Watched Monk some years ago. Very good show. I even purchased a couple of seasons that I found on ebay real cheap. They are still sealed. Going to need to break those seals soon.

I'm still working as well but we're absolutely dead. I've started watching the MCU in chronological order. I just started Iron Man 2.

Defiance pulled me from the MCU marathon I'd just started on. I love some crappy SyFy series and as a crappy syfy series I've not been disappointed thus far.

lol parks n rec... that's another one we've been watching.  BALLER TIME.   I Think we are into season 3 or 4 with Monk now... out of 8... or maybe it was 9 seasons.   Still a way to go!

HM... I need to look into IT Crowd.

We are going to do the Marvel run this summer.  We have all be 2 of the movies - Black Panther and Guardians of the Galaxy 2.  We are going to watch them in the proper order over 2-3 days.   We did that with the Harry Potter's last summer.

I've been catching up on Grey's Anatomy. There's 16 seasons, and I've made it to season 11 now. I really enjoy medical drama type shows like that. I also have the boxed set of all of the seasons of House that I want to watch, but I'll probably do that after I finish Grey's.

I've not been a big medical drama fan but House was a masterpiece.

lol speaking of medical drama @Mai Valentine and @targetrasp … Scrubs.... I miss that show.  It's a comedy though... not a drama.  I think we need to binge that.


@retro junkie We are almost done with all Monk seasons!

@BLUEVOODU I finished Star Trek Deep Space Nine last week. I really did not like the last few Seasons due to the war with the Dominion. It put a somber mood over the whole series. And I did not like where they took a lot of the characters, and some were just out-of-character. Miles had the most dysfunctional family. Sisco and his son was the best representation of a family they had on the show apart from the Ferengi. I now know why I stopped watching the series during its hay-day. It is not that I cannot enjoy a continuous serial story plot that extends throughout a series, case in point, I am really into Star Trek Discovery. It takes some good writers to make it happen and not kill it for me. I don't think Deep Space Nine had that.  :(

I need to watch that series... if I am correct, it was a little rough from the episodes we watched lol.   But we need to re-watch it.    SO.... it sounds like you are recommending it  ;D

Just keeping in line with the Star Trek recommendations - Picard is awesome, and i'm not a huge Star Trek fan. The episode was free so i watched it then got CBS all access to get to watch the rest.

After i finish up the Seal Team episodes that i missed i'll have to check out Discovery. if it's as good as Picard i'll blow right through them.

Didn't they say Picard was really dark?

She-Ra is another good one to binge if you're more in a cartoon mood. They also just put Avatar: the Last Airbender on Netflix.

Dead to Me is a great show as well, and they just put season 2 up.

I have started Star Trek: Enterprise. It is another one that I bailed on back then. It started losing me after they changed the intro song. And another series that had a war that dragged on and on and on.

@Mai Valentine ooo… I'm always down to watch Avatar: The Last Airbender.   Still an awesome series...and it finished back in 2008.  Legend of Korra was pretty good as well.   We will binge those series from time-to-time.

I finished Grey's Anatomy, and then the spinoff Private Practice. Both were pretty good.

I am working now on Arrow. I've watched Supergirl and the Flash so it's kind of neat seeing where all the Arrowverse stuff started.

Enterprise had a great cast and some great writing early in the series.  When they got into the "temporal cold war" story arc, the story made increasingly less sense.

Renee recently finished the Avatar animated series (the Airbender, not the blue people from the James Cameron film).  We have also watched a ton of Supernatural and Voltron on Netflix!
