TV Series you're binge watching in your boxers this week

Just finished up Ray Donovan and really enjoyed Liev Schreiber's character. It definitely has a "Soprano-esque" for those who enjoyed that series. There are definitely plot holes in some of the conflicts he goes through but still an enjoyable show.

Any tv series recommendations?

If you liked Entourage, I recommend "Ballers" on HBO. Produced by Mark Wahlberg and starring Dwayne Johnson.

Ballers is the "Jersey Shore" of HBO. My friends have several running jokes about how bad it is. Tried it a few times and deemed it unwatchable. Really surprising that HBO picked it up for a second season.

Ok let me rephrase, its definitely geared for the under 35 crowd. Hence why I said if you liked "Entourage"(not the movie, the actual show) you'll like Ballers. As for "Jersey Shore of HBO" maybe to the older folks. It got renewed because obviously it's popular.

Just started this series a couple of days ago. Very good so far and great concept.

I'm amazed, this is a car forum and no one has mentioned Grand Tour.
They, Clarkson, the Hamster, and Captain slow are starting to hit their stride.
Another Amazon prime show I want to check out is Bosch, it will be interesting to see if the show is as good as the books.

Thanks for reminding me! I'll binge watch tonight, while the wife is out of town.

"True Detective" on HBO.

Wowsers. It is excellent.

I tried binge watching "The Grand Tour" on Amazon, and loved the first episode. It was hilarious. Sad to see their celebrity guests die like that, but they had some great cars. I don't like the private track they got to replace the Top Gear track, and "The American" wasn't as funny as I think they thought he'd be, but what do you expect from a NASCAR driver? I think it might have been better to have him in a closed-visor STIG-like suit. Or maybe get someone more charismatic, like Danica Patrick. Better yet, Sabine Schmitz, the Nurburgring taxi driver... she's a total character... too bad Top Gear snagged her first.

I don't think he will be back for season 2.
Another one to consider, along the lines of Sabine Schmitz would be funny car driver John Force. Ever see one of his interviews when he crawls out of the car? The guy is a riot.
