What are you watching now (TV show/movie)?


Share what you're watching right now as in a movie or a tv show. You can do that posting a trailer, if available, or even a fan video you made yourself.

I've prepared quite a few tv shows for myself which will keep me busy until the end of the year and probably even till later than that: 9-1-1, Halo, Station 19, Project Blue Book, Helix, Colony, Resurrection, 4400, Wayward Pines. Still waiting for the final episodes of "The Flash" and "Chicago Fire". Also waiting for new seasons of "Roswell, New Mexico", "La Brea", "Stranger things" and "Star Trek Discovery". But before all that I gotta finish rewatching my TV drug - "Supergirl". I'm literally addicted to that show (and seeing the most beautiful woman in the Universe, you can see her in the video below) - I can't function normally, if I don't watch at least one episode a day.

So, what's your passion right now and what movie or a TV show are you waiting for to arrive?

I'm a mystery buff.

I've watched all the episodes of Midsomer Murders twice and will likely watch them all again. I also can recommend the Aussie series, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, especially seasons two and three.

My friend and I are also working our way through NCIS on Netflix. It's not the stories, it's the characters.

I also like the characters on NCIS: Hawai'i, but, so far, the plots have been pretty lame. But I'm hoping.

I can go on, but I won't . . . .

There is already a "An advice for a good movie to watch ?" thread.

(Despite the title, people also post TV shows there.)

I'm enjoying the series "New Tricks."

The pilot lays out the basic plot: A female police officer (with a temper) supervises a cold case unit comprised of herself and, for budgetary reasons, some retired and oddball detectives. Well written and acted, low on the distasteful but realistic sides of life that police get to see. I laugh in every episode.

There was 8 series, so it obviously worked.

No there are 12 seasons of that. The lady detective gets changed at the end of...I can't recall, season 9 I think, or 10.

The woman who played the first detective went on to do an Indian show. Let me think...

12 seasons? OK. I got series 1-8 in a torrent.

The good karma hospital I found pretty poor. Maybe it was a good career move for her.

"Roman Megastructures"

On Tubitv,com, a "docuseries" titled "Roman Megastructures," It focuses on three cities in Roman Gaul, which are now the cities of Lyon, Arles, and Paris.

I gather that the series was originally French, but it has been dubbed in to English, the first episode adequately, the other two skillfully.

I found it fascinating.

Me too on series 1-8. Some of the later series were more ephemeral and transitory. I had real effort putting two seasons together. eztv.re & x1337x.se had episodes too. eztv is good for tv stuff. It took time, but I finally nailed every last episode.

Good Karma was racist crap. I see red when 1 nationality treats another as a lower life form.

The BBC used to do good adaptations of Dickens novels, but their latest "Great Expectations" is more like a mutilation.

Some of the acting is good. The standards & scenery is generally top class. But they move at the pace of a book - a page or two per episode.

They were also very cruel times, and people. BSD fortunes gifted me this line the other day

I will leave this up for 30 min, then take it down.
Let all of the segments stream in. They are not jpeg's. They are .ts segments. ffmpeg will take care of them.

Code:
Removed stale link
Edit1:
Edit: Looks like there is 3852 segments, and the file size is 2698MB
But for a movie that is all CGI, you need decent video.
