the one thing I really hate about the show is the constant repetition of information, eg showing the carving of the cross in France or the story of the slave, Samuel Bass. They've shown it at least a dozen times. I now watch the show with my remote in my hand so I can fast forward when it occurs.

Im actually not sure what I want to watch next... Nothing is particularly calling out to me. Some of my potential choices are Broadchurch season 2, The Fall season 3, The Man In The High Castle season 3, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 2... maybe I'll just do a re-watch of Game of Thrones. When is The Expanse season 3 going to be on streaming? Who's got a recommendation?

It probably gets redundant because you're probably binge watching the series.  When you watch it over a season, it's not so bad.

They have other shows on the History Channel regarding the Knights Templar.  It's really interesting that there are theories that they're the ones who created the modern banking system in Europe and that they made quite a few journeys to the Americas several hundred years before Columbus.

both great choices 

I can't get myself to watch Ms Maisel, probably because I don't know anyone that has watched it.

Recently watched 2 shows on Netflix.  The Last Kingdom and Derry Girls.  The Last Kingdom is a solid medieval type show.  It’s a bit like Vikings, except I enjoyed it more.   Derry Girls is very different from that.  It’s a comedy about these girls and guy growing up in Northern Ireland during the Troubles in the early 90’s.  It’s hilarious.   Episodes are only 30 mins, 1st season is 6 episodes.  Great for something quick and stupid to laugh at.  Enjoyed it.

Couldn't find anything to watch so I thought I might as well give this a try . . .

Motherfucker!!! It's my new thing

So they killed the Indians, and not Columbus.  #MakeColumbusGreatAgain

I honestly have no idea how grownups can watch anime. 

Godzilla on Netflix is strange.  Not sure if I liked it, but it was different.  But definitely more of a grownup anime.

@AngelsLakersFan  If you liked season 1 and 2 of Man in the High Castle.  Season 3 tied it all together pretty well.

Season one was a bit of a let down by the end. I decided I didn't really like the way they approached adapting the story, but I was invested enough to watch season 2, which, once I adjusted my expectations, was solid. The previews for three make it look like it really came off the rails though, so I'm hesitant to start it up.

I really liked both, but looking ahead I see two seasons set in the courtroom, which is far less interesting than the stuff that comes before.

As for Maisel, Maisel is good but it started to wear on me over time. The writing is quick witted, snarky and fun... but... it's just so absurdly unbelievable. She is, perhaps intentionally, portrayed as the perfect woman - beautiful, funny, smart and utterly devoted to her husband's every need, with rich parents to boot. From that starting point all conflict is manufactured from the need to try and bring her down a notch, to give her flaws and problems that, were she real she would never have. Her biggest manufactured flaw is that she would be foolish enough to marry the one loser guy who would inexplicably leave her for his secretary.
