What Next?

Studly Doright and I finished watching The Wire last night. Wow, what a great series! For some reason, though, we both thought the show ran for eight seasons, so we were totally shocked when it ended after season five.

Now we have to search for a new series. That’s always tough, especially when the one we’ve just finished watching was outstanding in every way.

So now what? I’ve suggested the sci-fi series, The Expanse. I’ve read all the books by James S. A. Corey, and they are excellent. Studly isn’t as into sci-fi as I am, so I’m going to have to campaign extra hard for that one.

And then there’s Big Sky based on the novel The Highway by C. J. Box. The book was so good, but I haven’t heard much yet about the series other than a few grumbles about casting choices from other readers of the book.

We’ve watched and enjoyed Breaking Bad, Peaky Blinders, Shameless, Godless, Hell on Wheels, Schitt’s Creek, Ozark, Better Call Saul, The Queen’s Gambit, Band of Brothers, Lost in Space, The Mandalorian, and probably a few more I can’t recall.

And we tried watching Longmire, Yellowstone, and The Good Place, but couldn’t get into those. Studly wouldn’t enjoy Downton Abbey, or The Crown, and I doubt I could coax him into watching Bridgerton; although, that one intrigues me.

So, what’s next? Is there a gem out there that we’ve overlooked? If we don’t find something else soon, I’ll be forced to watch motorcycle videos on YouTube. Help.

Peace, people!

  1. Lupin. It takes place in France. Omar Sy was in ‘Burnt’ with Bradley Cooper (be still my heart) and now I want to see Omar in that movie. His character, Lupin, is very likeable. One season (so far), 5 episodes. We like it, and have seen most of you have already seen, too.

  2. I have so many on my watch list but haven’t started many of them. I did watch Bridgerton. I’d give it an okay/acceptable but nothing outstanding. Been working my way through SnowPiercer, which has an interesting apocalypse premise as it’s theme and also lots of class warfare among the survivors. Pretty violent, but I am sort of hooked, and it is ongoing still-just now in season 2.

  3. Although I’m weary of sci-fi as the hubs watches so much of it, I really enjoyed The Expanse. The character development and storytelling was just so good that it overcame my impatience with the sci-fi setting. I haven’t read the books.
