Never could tackle The WIre - too American. Had the same issue with Breaking Bad.
The Americans however was brilliant.

The Americans was awesome (my only objection is the last season - imo it was boring and the finale was imho simply ridiculous; other than that I really enjoyed it)

New Ipcress File is almost. Not quite as good as the original movie.

Just watched 'Night Sky' on Amazon Prime.
Well, that was a treat. J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek play an aging couple in typical small town mid-west America.
They live their lives, go about their business and proceed through the mild perturbations and minor interpersonal conflicts that are the warp and weft of life.
Oh, they also have a secret chamber under their garden shed that leads to a portal to another solar system...

The thing I liked about this was the sheer normality of the lives lived by the characters. So used am I to dramas where every emotional response is dialed up to 11, every conflict of interest leads to a blazing row, every past sadness is a burning trauma that infuses a character's whole being, it was really refreshing to see normal people being normal.
The parts were played to perfection by Simmons and Spacek.

The Sci-fi aspect of the story ended up being a kind of side issue...and you know what? I kind of liked it that way.
"Go and look at the vista of an alien world today?"
"Nah, got some errands to run in town. You want anything from the store?"

Hoping there is a series 2.

not bad but rhe lead is nuts

Additionally, during the filming of Blindspot, Alexander experienced many injuries, including: ruptured C6 and C7 discs from being water boarded; herniated T3, T4, T8 and T9 discs; broken nose; dislocated right shoulder; broken right index finger; broken left foot; broken left two toes three times; broken right foot; broken right two toes; dislocated jaw; and other injuries that she was not allowed to disclose.[26]
In March 2018, Alexander was hospitalized and underwent surgery after her appendix ruptured. She later recovered.[27]

Also in 2012, Alexander suffered severe injuries when she slipped off a metal staircase during a rainy morning on the Thor: The Dark World set. The fall caused her to slip a disc in her thoracic spine and chip 11 of her vertebrae, as well as dislocate her left shoulder and tear a rhomboid on her right side. The injuries took her out of filming for a month.[24][25]


5 seasons

has a CSI feel

watching the original Korean version now ...


can't locate a reliable Season 5 on the remake :(

This is okay tho - I don't mind subtitles and different cultures are interesting to see.
The two lead surgeons are similarlt cast as well. Enjoying it.
