Tv Show Watch List For October 2023 And Beyond

My goodness there’s a lot of tv shows I’d like to watch lately, but I just don’t seem to have the time to sit and binge watch. So this list will take me most likely into the new year at this rate….

Twisted Metal: season 1

Loved the games in the mid 90’s this is loosely based on.
In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, John Doe, a talkative milkman with amnesia, is given a mission to traverse the desolate United States to deliver a mysterious package with unknown contents. He faces a life-altering opportunity but must confront ruthless marauders in deadly and destructive vehicles to secure a chance at a better future.

Staged: season 3

Have loved the first two, and can only think it will be just as good. The both play off each other so well.
David and Michael wittily navigate the trials of virtual rehearsals, personal conflicts, unexpected twists, all whilst trying to keep their sanity intact.

Spaced: season 1-2

Loved this when I first watched it so many years ago. Hoping it still holds up.
Daisy Steiner and Tim Bisley are two London based twenty-somethings who meet by chance in a café while both are flat-hunting. Despite barely knowing each other, they conspire to pose as a young professional couple in order to meet the requisites of an advertisement for a relatively cheap flat in the distinctive building at 23 Meteor Street, Tufnell Park, owned by resident landlady Marsha Klein. Also in the building is Brian Topp, an eccentric conceptual artist who lives and works on his various pieces in the ground-floor flat. Frequent visitors are Daisy’s best friend Twist Morgan and Tim’s best friend Mike Watt. The latter ends up becoming a lodger after Marsha’s daughter Amber Weary “flies the nest”

Sex Education: season 1-4

One of the series I always wanted to watch but never got around to watching. Well the fourth and final season is out, so nows the time…
Sex Education primarily follows Otis Milburn, a student at Moordale Secondary School. Otis begins the series ambivalent about sex, in part because his single mother, Jean Milburn, is a sex therapist who frequently has affairs with male suitors but does not maintain romantic relationships.

One Piece: season 1

Don’t know much about this one, only that its a live action version of a well loved anime series, and it’s got good reviews.

The series follows the adventures of the Straw Hat Pirates as they explore the dangerous oceans, lands, and beyond in search of the “One Piece”, a fabled treasure that will make their captain, Monkey D. Luffy, “King of the Pirates”. But the Marines are on their ship’s tail, and they are not the only crew searching for the One Piece. Armed with skills and an unbreakable friendship, the Straw Hats are ready for the journey and even more ready to fight for their dreams together.

Good Omens: season 2

The book was great, loved the first season, and looking forward to see where the second one goes.

The second season concerns the Archangel Gabriel arriving without his memories to Aziraphale’s bookshop. Aziraphale and Crowley attempt to find out what happened to Gabriel and to also hide him from Heaven and Hell, both of which are eager to find him

Captain Fall: season 1

Not so sure about this one, but hoping it’s in the same humour of Archer.

A goofy, gullible sea captain is hired to helm a high-end cruise ship and becomes the perfect fall guy for an illicit smuggling operation.

Black Mirror: season 6

It’s just a great series, so just hoping for more of the same.

Featuring stand-alone dramas — sharp, suspenseful, satirical tales that explore techno-paranoia — “Black Mirror” is a contemporary reworking of “The Twilight Zone” with stories that tap into the collective unease about the modern world. Each story features its own cast of unique characters.

Archer: season 14

Have been a big fan of Archer from the very first season. 14 is the last, so I’m hoping it goes out with a bang!.

Archer follows the exploits of eight dysfunctional secret agents and support staff of the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS), a fictional New York–based intelligence agency. They are Sterling Archer, the show’s narcissistic, philandering protagonist Malory Archer, retired agent-turned-ISIS director and Sterling’s abusive mother Lana Kane, Sterling’s on-and-off lover and mother of his daughter, and by far the most qualified ISIS field agent Ray Gillette, the agency’s openly gay bomb specialist Pam Poovey, the foolish but exceptionally skilled human resources supervisor-turned-agent Cyril Figgis, the mild-mannered, often ridiculed accountant-turned-agent Cheryl Tunt, Malory’s neurotic personal assistant and Dr. Algernop Krieger, the agency’s bizarre, morally bankrupt scientist with little regard for the well-being of his test subjects

Ahsoka: season 1

Hoping big things from this….

Ahsoka Tano investigates an emerging threat to the galaxy following the fall of the Empire.

Extra notes:

Since my last tv watch list I have managed to also get through Foundation season 2, Witcher season 3 and I’m still working through the completed X-Files seasons…
