OT: What are you watching in the off-season?

Now that football is dead until August

What are you all going to watch to kill the time between now and then? With the explosion of online streaming options, it seems like the number of good shows has spiked in recent years, so I'm curious to hear what everyone here is watching.

Personally, I just got into the James May Our Man in Japan on Amazon, and its great. Then again, literally everything that man does is great, so I'm not surprised.

I also recently got a CBS All Access subscription so that I can watch Picard later this month. But in the meantime, I've been catching up on Star Trek: Discovery. Man, that's actually a good show. I might have to watch it again just to pick up on everything.

So what about you?

Hopefully Mikel Arteta working some real magic.

Also all the Star Wars animated series.

I just started The Witcher (3 episodes in) and I will likely break down and go ahead and order CBS All Access solely for the Picard series. You can never get enough Jean Luc Picard.

Just finished season 1 of True Detective, starting season 2 tonight

Still gotta watch the new seasons of Man in the High Castle, the OA, and Jack Ryan

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Is Jack Ryan really that good? I've heard good things, but haven't gotten around to catching any, yet.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

I remember liking season 1, but I don't remember much about it, lol

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Yes.

(add if applicable) /s

Season 1 was fantastic. Season two was good, but had a very different tone and storyline. I didn't like it as much.

The good news is they are not connected short of the character of Ryan himself really, so I would definetely give season 1 a watch

Yes, watched season 1 when it first came out and then again right before season 2 dropped. Both were good.

I'm late to the party on this one, but just started watching Brockmire. I'll also pick up with Better Call Saul and Ozark when the new seasons begin.

I just started watching Brockmire too. Pretty entertaining

Can't spell DBU without Bud

We watch more movies than shows. With it being award szn we are gearing up to catch some of the best picture nominees at Regal on their rerun. We missed Jojo Rabbit and Parasite. Then we will catch Marriage Story and the Irishman on Netflix then we will have seen them all.

We saw 1917 last weekend. Really enjoyed that. The continuous shot effect gave me anxiety initially. But it then became really cool. We also really loved Little Women. Little Women and Knives Out are probably my favorite films of 2019 as it stands.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Knives Out is my #2 movie of 2019 behind Jojo Rabbit.

I recommend watching HBO's The Watchmen. It's so damn good.

fucking fantastic

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Finished all the Star Wars and Letterkenny content unfortunately.

The Witcher
Wu-Tang
Better Things
Expedition: Bigfoot

We binge so much stuff after dinner on work nights I can hardly remember what was good and what we are currently watching.

I also spend an hour or 2 on Destiny 2 or Modern Warfare.

If anyone needs any shows to watch, my favorite shows of last year were Fleabag, Succession, and Barry.

Personally, I will be watching a ton of movies.

Ozzy Man Reviews, You Betcha and Manitowoc Minute with Charlie Berens on You Tube.

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Didn't you get the memo? We're a basketball school now too. That's what I'm watching.

The Witcher was a really good watch, and Succession on HBO was very good in the first season and became awesome in the second.

I will be checking out the All or Nothing about the Eagles on Prime when that drops after the Super Bowl.

Also on Prime:
The Boys
Bosch
Fleabag
Catastrophe (this one is a bit under the radar, but probably one of the funniest shows I've seen in a long time. The two actors that created and wrote it have some of the best comedic timing and chemistry I've ever seen together)

So much good TV out there, and can't wait for Better Call Saul to come back in Feb.

What off-season? I just shift my focus to basketball while i count the days to first pitch.

When I'm not watching that:
- need to start the jack ryan series, Mr. Robot, Silicon Valley, and The Witcher
- finish GoT
- pickup The Expanse again
- maybe finish the last season of Arrested Development

I watched a few episodes of Arrested Development season 5 and IMO it's so so bad. I can't even force myself to finish it. It makes me really sad because I think seasons 1 and 2 are some of my favorite seasons of any TV show ever, but it's been ruined.

I'm gonna be watching for the 2020 ACC football schedule to be put out on the street.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Season 7 of homeland just dropped on hulu and once I finish that getting into the Expanse

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

I'll probably just watch shows that have been out for several years. Oh, and the VT football head coaching search. I'll definitely be watching that.

/s (sorta)

I'm just trying to catch up on everything that came out in the last year. Finished Silicon Valley last night. Probably Barry season 2 tonight. Then continue working my way through all the HBO shows. Then Showtime. Then SNL. Then Amazon. Then Hulu. Then Netflix.

I'm looking forward to Westworld coming back in March

I'm watching the meltdown from the Fuente/Baylor saga

Heard that has raving reviews and could be up for best drama next year.

Olaf's fucking Christmas Special is god awful. Just horrible.

I've watched a few Hokie basketball games. They are entertaining - and often the good guys win at the end of each episode.

Probably be watching a lot of Flighttracker the next few days.

my blood pressure rise

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

I'm watching a drama about an underachieving football coach who longs for greener pastures. I'm about to start season 5 and its getting really interesting, so please don't spoil it if you know what happens.

Is it basketball season yet?

I just finished season 3 of Schitt's Creek and I am really enjoying it. I went into the show without knowing anything about it, expecting it to be full of Roland, but I have been pleasantly surprised.

As others have said, the Witcher, it is really excellent. I love the non-linear nature of the season and how things move together as the episodes go on. Really disappointed that season two is so far away.

I also gave Lost in Space another try. I watched the first two episode when the series originally dropped and was not impressed, but Mrs MattBoard convinced me to give it another try and it has really grown on me.

if you have showtime I suggest you watch "city on a hill" especially if you are a fan of the movie "the town" heres a quick run down.

The series is set in Boston in the early 1990s when the city was rife with violent criminals, emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption, tribalism, and "taking it to the street" were the normβ€”until it all suddenly changed. This is a fictional account of what was called the "Boston Miracle". The change agent is District Attorney Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge), who comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon), a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran who is deeply invested in maintaining the status quo. Together they take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown (Jonathan Tucker, Mark O'Brien, and Jimmy Cummings) in a case that grows to encompass Boston's citywide criminal justice system.

its one of the better series ive watched lately.

Well, logged into the site to check out a few things and saw this:

Hoping there isn't a season 2...but I'm sure it won't just put itself out and go dormant.

@BuryHokie #ThanksFrank

I can recommend the following:
Bosch
Jack Ryan
The Witcher (as long as you don't take it too seriously)
The Expanse
Man in the High Castle (at least the first season)
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (it takes a bit of work to get through the first episode, but watch the second to get a real feel for if the series is for you.)

Not sure if I am going to watch Picard or not. Couldn't get into the second season of Discovery.

The Expanse continues to be really good. I binged the new season in like 3 days and I'll go back and watch it again after I catch up on some other things. Easily my favorite currently airing show.

With Wheel of Time and Lord of the Rings both coming to Amazon in the relatively near future, it's a really good time to bee a SF/Fantasy fan.

Marvelous Mrs Maisel is phenomenal. Highly recommended.

I am waiting to start The Expanse (0) again until after football. I'm gonna binge that over a weekend.

Until then, I'm watching movies. Youtube TV let me record a bunch of stuff off TV. The commercials suck, but I'm buying the service to watch football until the Super Bowl is done. Recently, I've hit:
The Revenant (6)
The Martian (2)
Catch Me If You Can (3)
Leon: The Professional (5)

I also watched the Irishman (4) on my sister's Netflix when I was down at her place over Christmas.

But by far, of the movies I've watched in the last few weeks, my favorite is a sci-fi horror movie:
Life (1)

None of these movies were bad. Rankings by preference are in parenthesis.

Football. With a DVR full of games, there is no off-season.
