Lately, my wife and I have been binge-watching several TV series at once on Netflix.
Sons of Anarchy.
As much as I’d like to think the result has led me to a higher plane of moral existance through the peripheral experience of others who have made mistakes and fallen into a life of crime, murder and mayhem, it seems that I’ve only taken away one lasting life lesson…
It may be time to start watching more Disney movies…

You can’t go wrong with the final season of Breaking Bad!
So I’ve heard, Gary! I can’t wait!
Before you switch to Disney, watch Homeland. So good!
I’m starting to feel like I’m a TV show viewer with multiple personality disorder!
Haha. I loved Prison Break. It’s one of those shows I mourned when it ended.
I have a feeling I’ll be in a state of perpetual mourning before this is all over.
Avoid Disney – it’s even worse…
Good point. I’ve been gun shy ever since “Frozen.”
It took you that long? 😉
so very true. and wise.
I’m like Morgan Freeman in “The Shawshank Redemption.”
i’m like the dad in ‘arrested development.’
I’m seeing us in starring roles for “The Shawshank Redemption: 2”
No better way to bond with your loved one but through the shared experience of extreme violence and crime. We lost many a night’s sleep watching the first two. Haven’t seen Prison Break. Guess it’s time to shack up with the hubs for another binge?
It helps remind us how fleeting our lives can be, assuming we become drug dealers or go “nomad” from a biker gang.
Ultimately though, I’ll take any excuse to shack up with my wife…
I tried to binge-watch The Purge and was immediately placed in an viewing-disorder program
I lost 16 pounds binge-watching The Purge…
I wasn’t so lucky…only 8 pounds, 5 shillings and 6 pence
Well, it’s always a gamble I suppose.
Greatness’s other name is Trump.
Only when he’s speaking to himself in the mirror.
Grab a bar of soap and watch ‘Midnight Express’.
And maybe a piece of tongue. Preferably cow.
“Net – Flicks”? ‘Round about these here parts, that there is sumthin we are all proud of. Ya see when ur fishin’ the number of fish ya gits is all abouts how ya
flicks the net, especially when poachin’. These here fellas ur talkin bout – Sons of some guy called anarchie and some lads from da prision – they had better be plenty good at flickin the net if theys wants to come up here and fish wit r boys.
ha ha ha ha!! 😉
Hahaha! It’s impossible to read that without a brogue!
I certainsly hope so as I were wearing me brogue when i writ it.
You have inspired a new limerick — Ned flicks while watching Netflix. Say that ten times fast.
Let me grab a pint first
Oh I love Disney, especially the old stuff on vhs, gives that authentic feeling.
Yeah, the digital animation is pretty spectacular, but there’s just something about hand-drawn animation that gets lost in the digital stuff.
You forgot HBO’s Oz, speaking of thrusting…
Hahaha! I’ve never seen it but I feel another binge coming on. At least I think that’s what I’m feeling…
I’ve been on a Scandal binge. And I’m not ashamed to admit it’s because of Tony Goldwin’s (President Grant) mouth. I can’t take my eyes off his lips when he’s in a scene. *fans herself*
I get it. Same thing for me with biker babes I guess 😉
Love that you called them babes and not chicks. 😉
I’ve gotten to the point where I can’t watch any significant violence on TV or in movies anymore. It bothers me and gives me nightmares. I “feel” the negativity 😦
But there are a lot of well done shows. Good acting, story telling and directing. I used to love CSI and Law and Order. It just got too Real I guess. There is enough violence and sadness in the world and the news, I need to avoid putting any more in my psychi I guess.
I totally get that. My older half-brother was a Hell’s Angel in the L.A. Charter, so I grew up with bikers around all the time. They were always great to me and never pressured me one way or the other — although I’m pretty sure my brother didn’t want me mixed up in any of that. So I guess I’ve always been drawn to that life… at least in movies and on paper 😉
I work with a man who was in prison. He brings it up even though I told him to let it go. It has made an indelible stain on his ego. He is a different person now and no longer does drugs. I believe that having kids changed him. But once in a while there is an issue with anger. We never address the anger in people. We just let them handle it.
This post actually hurt, Ned…
As an aside Ned, the first installment of my disappearance is up over at Cordelia’s Mom http://cordeliasmomstill.com/2016/02/22/dont-pay-the-ransom-i-escaped-guest-post-by-paul-curran/ If you have a chance to read it I would be honored. Thank you.
Disney movies technically include Superhero movies as well, seeing that hey own Marvel. So go for it!
