I’m figuring it’s possible college football fans might have other similar tastes? Anything good on TV these days now that there’s no college football?

And I’m sure a lot of you just watch other sports. But everybody already knows about basketball.

Anything out there worth watching we might not know about?

All I’m watching these days is I signed up for an HBO subscription to check out the series Sharp Objects. It’s not bad. Not great either.

    Well a few things. Supercross started a few weeks ago. Oh, season three of True Detective stated two weeks ago and it’s really good so far

    Just watched Murder Mountain on Netflix and it’s worth a gander.

    As Kasey bro stated nothing wrong with a good book either. Currently reading, Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins. Bro was in the Air Force, Seals and also became a Ranger. He now runs ultra Marathons. He currently has the title of one bad ass man

    Oh, check out the Last American Man. It’s about Eustace Conway. Also a bad ass man, but in a totally different way

    I'll be checking this out too. I hate that the Atlanta Legends' colors are Purple and Gold though, ugh. Doesn't the XFL come back this year too or is it 2020? I know it's coming back with alot more rules, I just can't remember when.

    @levander These are really all good ideas. Netflix is where my whole family resides pretty much. Hanging in here in the forum and waiting to see any all of y’all’s great posts, and really funny humor too. Love seeing other loyal DawgForum folks smack down the occasional “Trolls” that come in here. Really looking forward to the “old school” NSD on February the 6th, and then CKS finally naming his new DC, & his new DB coaches. I DO REALLY MISS the DAWGS all year long until it’s finally FOOTBALL SEASON AGAIN!!! GO DAWGS!!!

    Ive got a picture of me next to his statue in Montreux. It was foggy one day we were there, which was the setting when Deep Purple wrote Smoke on the Water in the same place.

  • dawgnmsdawgnms Posts: 1,561 mod

    Watch NHL especially Nashville Predators.

  • scooterdawgscooterdawg Posts: 1,128 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    If you have HBO I’d suggest giving Succession a shot. It’s about a Rupert Murdoch type and his scheming kids. I got hooked after an episode or two. It IS partially written by the guy who did the Cheney movie out right now so a possible trigger warning for sensitive conservative types lol. Of course he also directed Anchorman, Stepbrothers, and Talladega Nights which probably just made some more right leaning fans of those pics throw up in their mouths.

    Even if it’s not your thing if you haven’t already I’d consider watching Game of Thrones. It’s pure fluff, but it’s well done and there’s a reason it’s like the most pirated show ever. It’s not as big an investment to catch up on as a lot of shows as the episodes are so pricey that they don’t make as many. Final season is coming out and while I totally understand the backlash against anything too popular, it is going to be hard to avoid hearing about GoT. Might be a can’t beat em so join em scenario. And it’s not like it’s boring.

    I enjoyed Jack Ryan on Amazon, more entertaining fluff. Also if you have HBO and haven’t watched some of the classics like Sopranos, Deadwood(movie coming out at some point), the Wire, or others, the app has every episode of every show HBO has done.

    The Ozarks as mentioned above is on my list. I have HBO, Amazon, and Netflix so there’s always a backlog of stuff for me to get to. I also watch a ton of documentaries, from history to current events. Amazon has a slightly better selection for what I’m looking for but Netflix has some too. The Netflix ones tend to be series like Making a Murderer and a John Grisham based one currently, while Amazon has a lot of BBC/British stuff and PBS stuff.

    Oh, and if you have Netflix and just want something entertaining and over the top I recommend Narcos: Mexico. Loosely based on the guy who first formed the Mexican cartel system. It’s a joint US/Mexican production so it’s both English and Spanish with subtitles. Sex, Violence, and action galore.

    college basketball...in particular UGA, because I'm a Dawg fan. UF because I consult with a sports psychologist who works with the Gators (don't hate on me for this) and U of TX because I consult with the same guy who works with them as well.

    I also watch MLB channel to follow the Braves.

    I'm trying to watch less TV so I generally do some rowing while the games are on so I don't feel like I'm wasting so much time.

    I'm about to lose a tremendous amount of credibility with this post- I also coach high school softball and 14u select baseball.

    Soooo - I actually enjoy watching college softball on TV - it's actually really good when you understand how the game is played.

    And the Jack Ryan series on Amazon is really good.

    I agree on Queer Eye. I have friends who probably wouldn’t watch it because they don’t like being exposed to gays but I thought it was funny and even touching at times. Particularly interesting because at least the first season was filmed in Georgia, often the small towns in an hour or so radius from Atlanta.

    There was one where they went to “makeover” a Trump loving cop from Winder I believe and another with a big evangelical family. Of course it’s not for everyone(people who are threatened by or don’t like gays).
