- whats a good series to watch with my wife?
I’ve not seen it yet, but The Wire does seem to be consistently raved about by pretty much everyone. Not heard anyone have a bad thing to say about it, ever.
I watched BSG recently and really enjoyed it, but whether your OH would get on with it is another matter. It’s ostensibly a soap opera in space, could maybe pitch it on that basis? </outrageous gender stereotyping>
The OH and I are currently watching, and enjoying, Fringe at the moment. It’s sort of X-Files: The Next Generation.Posted 5 years agodannyhMember
Bizarrely Men Behaving Badly nearly always finds its way onto the DVD player in our house if there’s nothing on telly and we have spare time at the same time (rare).
Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes also appear a bit.
Band of Brothers not so much – I think because my wife has always worked in hospitals and has witnessed plenty of blood, guts and carnage for real. So much so that she probably doesn’t want to have to watch it again in her spare time.
On the other hand, I think Band of Brothers is the finest TV drama series of the last ten years.Posted 5 years agocbSubscriber
Generation Kill – from the same writers as the Wire…and it shows! Set in 2nd Iraq “war”, 7 part series. Some of the actors were the actual characters being portrayed as part of the marine recon unit that the series follows. I only found that out by watching the extras afterwards!
More people based rather than overtly shooty.Posted 5 years ago
