Trainer Season 2017-18 Is Here - What To Binge Watch?

KenElPescadoPeladoKenElPescadoPelado Member, TRS/Baucco Team Member
It's cool, cloudy and sprinkling in Northern California today, so along with the early departure of daylight must come the inevitable trainer out of the closet.

What are your recommendations for series or movies to watch while suffering indoors this season? I've got Netflix & Amazon Video, just dropped HBO Now, but feel free to throw out any ideas for the masses.

    House of Cards
    Scandal
    Mindhunter
    Orange is the New Black (but only seasons 1 through 4, season 5 is boring AF)
    I have just started Stranger Things (I can't binge watch that one - family rule - but I want to)
    Also like Ozark but not enough to binge watch it

    @M_Ware I haaaated Longmire. Or at least the first 10-15 minutes of every episode. The hub used to watch it when he got in to bed - I rarely lasted beyond 15 minutes. For a tiny town, they sure had a lot of suspicious deaths.

    Get Crave you heathen. Then watch:

    The Disappearance
    White Famous
    Letterkenny (first and maybe 2nd seasons) - learn to speak Webstey!
    The Handmaids Tale
    Hello Ladies

    Of course, if you are part of this century then perhaps you have the fancy cable channels and already watch most of these shows.

    Turns on Netflix has been good.

    Most the Marvel shows are great on Netflix (except for Daredevil - someone just shoot the blind guy already - he has no weapons and very limited “powers”). Enough action and easy enough to follow that zoning out here and there won’t matter.

    I also did The Larry Sanders Show on HBO.

    Of course Golden Girls pretty much anytime on Lifetime.

    Last Man on Earth... kind of annoying at times (stupid tandy) but still a funny enough to watch and you cruise through the 20 minute episodes

    Biggie and Wu Tang-based Spotify playlists. If you can follow a Netflix show, ride harder.

    FU, Daredevil has been amazing. Especially season 2.
    Follow that up with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist (which is the weakest IMO) and then their team-up: The Defenders!

    and NARCOS!

    Jessica Jones = Super hero with supernatural powers

    Luke Cage = Super hero with supernatural powers

    Iron Fist = (haven't gotten to yet, but on my playlist)

    Daredevil = Blind guy who hears/smells well and lives in a city where no one knows how to a) aim or b) fire simultaneously. 65% of each episode is people with access to guns and/or real supernatural powers having fist fights. 25% is 45 second slow motion moments where he almost kisses Karen but doesn't. The last 10% is him either saying he "needs to do it alone" or that he can't kill anyone - both of which are the direct cause of the death of hundreds, if not thousands, of people. I watched all the episodes, but after about the first 3 it was rage inducing. Why I kept going, I don't know - I am broken that way. Maybe the rage was good for the trainer.

    Narcos was great, but I would have had a hard time doing that one on the trainer during any kind of effort with the all the subtitles. I suppose if you speak Spanish, but I can barely read when not exercising.

    I neglected to include these in my prior list:
    It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
    The League
    The Dick Van Dyke Show

    Oh yeah. Westworld.

    I have to be careful with that one and GOT. Good shows, but... the 5 year old comes down to the basement on Sat mornings, and that much violence and nudity is a little much to have to explain.

    +2 on triathlonlive.tv and SuperLeague - great for treadmill workouts as well.
    Cheers,

    A little. It's pretty good so far, but hard to top this version:

    Better Call Saul
    The Americans
    The Assets is a good 9-episode show that's a little more under the radar.

    I forgot about Better call Saul. Watched the first season then forgot all about it.
