This is an old, long gone series, but worth your time. Jim Henson's The Storyteller is on Amazon Prime now. Scripts by Oscar-winner Anthony Minghella. Amazing visuals. The titular character is played by John Hurt. My favorite episodes are 2, 3, and 5.

Have I mentioned recently how much I love Wayne on Amazon? I love this character. You learn right off meeting Wayne, you can knock Wayne down, but Wayne will not stay down — ever.

(Warning, cursing and violence enclosed)

Just discovered this series, FOR ALL MANKIND, on Apple Plus, it’s really great and has great reviews. Based on an alternate history/reality where the Russians beat the US to the moon, mixed with real life events and people.

This might be one of the few places where watching TV isn't looked at as a bad thing. I watched the first season and it was a mixed bag for me. Some episodes in the anthology were amazing and others were blah.

@chad The Witcher? I love The Witcher.

Screenwriting is I think one of the only professions in which you'll hear a fellow professional say "I'm not watching enough TV." (smile)

If you don't mind a lot of sex and nudity (albeit well-done and not gratuitous), this show is worth the investment and comes in tidy 30 minute-ish installments. A bonus is that the scripts for the first (and only so far) season are available for purchase on Amazon.

Yes and I do too. When Game of Throne's ended, I had an existential crisis. I went through The Last Kingdom before finding the Witcher. I still have a preference for The Last Kingdom but sadly, it is now DOA.

@michele I have been mildly curious about Modern Love. Oddly, that image? Suddenly amps up my interest. Talk about an image that captures a moment in time. A very long moment while we're living  it. Pandemic and romance/relationships.

 

Oh you can't tell which I'm replying to. The elbow bump.

Maybe everybody else has already seen this. I'm way behind on television. But this opening -- while weirdly, is not an introduction to the world this series is set in, which is rural Kentucky -- is a great intro to the main character, Raylan Givens. I was told to watch the first episode, and if that didn't grab me, it wasn't my show. Well it's my kind of show not because it's crime or shoot-em-up or whatnot but because it's characters and world created by Elmore Leonard. I'm thrilled to know that somebody other than Scott Berg can do a kickass adaptation of Elmore Leonard.

If that doesn't work I'll be editing until I get it to, fair warning!
