Q: Iso (social isolation) movie and TV recommendations?

Over the past 3 months I have watched all of Netflix and several other providers entire store. I'm not alone.

There is a new zombie movie that has just been released. CORONA Zombies. Classic B grade exploitation movie. Funny.

TV: Strike Back, Justified, The Following have been a few of the standout TV series.

Do you have any recommendations before I reach the end of the Internet?

I don't watch much TV but have been binging a bit on a couple of my favourite classics.

 

Trailer Park Boys - you might have heard of that. And Father Ted which is an older comedy from the UK that was really popular here in NZ years ago.

 

I started watching the Walking Dead again but couldn't get into it this time around, too dark considering the times we're in at the moment.

Khatia Buniatishvilli: Das Waldkonzert  , ...  French Georgian pianist ... very intense lassie ...

 

 

... not over Netflix, but over FrostWire, free p2p d/l.

 

I am using FW since ever ... (2002 with my first Mac G4 ..) and whole FW Library (some 150 flicks, 35 books/audiobooks & over 55h of music ...) stored on remote HD was d/l entirely free of charge.

 

Did I tell you, am from Free-Internet-Movemento ... angel

Drama / Crime

The Killing (Danish)

The Bridge (Denmark / Sweden co-production)

Wallander (Swedish)

 

Comedy

Fr Ted  - see Stiggs

Black Books

Brooklyn 99 - silly but fun

i am on retro comedies like *Yes Minister / Prime Mininster" - gentle but sharp

The Fast Show

Kath and Kim

 

Would recommend silent comedies such as Buster Keaton and Laurel and Hardy.

i know these are not TV shows, but they are amusing, and in the case of Buster Keaton, inventive with impressive stunts

 

enjoy

Justified.... totally rocks. Walton Goggins is my favourite actor but I didn't know his name until I watched the credits closely. He's played so many excellent supporting roles in film and TV but I never knew his name until today.

Watching "Devs" now. Interesting but I'll reserve judgement for now. I'm not sure if it can sustain the ambience. Hannibal sustained the ambience in spades.

During the whole isolation Netflix is my best thing....it kept me entretained, i joined the account payinng 30rmb and you also need to go over the wall. Using this guide https://www.screenbinge.com/netflix/china/ It has thousands of movies and series the list never ends. Though you frequently need to hump over servers for obvious reasons!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
