Movies & TV Shows
« on: August 04, 2013, 11:31:05 PM »
Howdy,

I don't have cable TV, haven't had it for a couple years now.

We do have Netflix and I like the commercial free viewing. That eliminates most of the sheeple propaganda and social engineering influences for my family.

Now I would like to say that since Jericho, it has been hard to find worthy TV shows to watch......until, now. Homeland, well worth a watch. Season one is on Netflix. It is a racy, spicy show in places. It explores some very dark topics and it has some interesting character development. Not a family show, too much T&A. Like I said it is racy and spicy in places. It has action, suspense, double cross; all the stuff to make it interesting.

It also allows you some time to explore who is in charge of what and what you should be prepping for.

So, the BBC series Survivors, The Walking Dead, Jericho and Homeland; are on my must watch list. Generation Kill and Band of Brothers are also worth watching, IMHO.

Anyone seen anything worth watching??

Mountainman.

The reimagined Battlestar Galactica was excellent. It is no longer running, but you can get the show on DVD or online.  Great series I recommend.

Family Guy is always a great show.

You're right homeland is a little racy. I like under the dome among other shows you listed (zombie apocalypse survival shows are the bomb) We use a website called project TV get everything FREE. No cable or sat out here. Here's the link:

My collection of must have shows.

Ray Mears (All of them)
Man, Woman, Wild
Doomsday Preppers (some people on this show are worth listening to)
Survivors (only two seasons on the BBC)
The Colony (2 seasons *season 1 is better IMO)
Jericho
After Armageddon
All in the family (just because it is so funny...nothing to do with prepping though)

Evenin' All,

Anyone watching The 100  on Netflix?? Pretty good show. Into season 2, now. Starts with humanity on the international spacestation, having to return to a post-nuclear Earth. Interesting story and strong characters.

Cheers,

MM.

If you like Zombie Survival, "Z Nation" is a more relaxed, dare I say comedic version of walking dead. It has its moments :) As someone else mentioned, family guy is always good for a laugh and often stretches the boundaries of social acceptability. Both good choices when you want a chuckle as opposed to something serious.

I prefer to watch shows that I can learn something for survival or for living simple life. The best shows (for me) is "VICTORIAN FARM" and "TUDOR MONASTERY FARM " . That shows you very basic ways to live very simple life with the most basic tools.
I prefer practical learning instead of entertainment. At least I know that people actually lived like that and survived comfortably.
