More Flicks Than Pricks

The question is, do you want to throw caution to the winds and watch the final episode of Broadchurch? Will you be up Schitt’s Creek if you watch another Bridgerton? You’re in the fourth season of The Americans, the second of Call My Agent and just beginning the long march through The Bureau. Let’s not forget where it all began with Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Homeland and The Wire. You once watched a series or two, now and then. There was Alistair Cooke introducing Masterpiece Theater and series like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Brideshead Revisited and The Jewel and the Crown on PBS. Speaking of which you must be getting past Diana’s eating disorder on The Crown, but let’s not forget old favorites like Fleabag, Babylon BerlinFauda, Lupin and The Queen’s Gambit! Is there a price to be paid for Succession? Does The White Lotus produce a nauseating feeling of déjà vu--especially if you've ever been dissatisfeied with your accommodations? And what about Madame Claude? Did you really think it was going to be about a restaurant?
