Whether self isolating, social distancing or on a full-blown quarantine, we find ourselves suddenly having more downtime than usual.
Commutes have been eliminated, events canceled and time spent with friends and neighbors has been put on hold.
All this makes it a great time to binge. And if you miss coming out to the North Fork, we’ve put together a cheat sheet for ways you can stream movies and television shows filmed right here.
Lost Girls (Netflix)
At roughly the same time everyone was being told to stay home, Netflix added this recent Sundance selection to its lineup of streaming movies. The Kenney’s Beach area of Southold doubles as Oak Beach in this story about the family of one of the Gilgo Beach victims. The Mattituck Motel is also prominent throughout the film.
Orange is the New Black, Season 2, Episode 1 (Netflix)
It’s hard to miss The Suffolk Theater in this episode of one of Netflix’s first popular original series, which was directed by the legendary Jodie Foster. It also includes scenes at the county jail in Riverside, but let’s hope those are less recognizable to you.
The Devil’s Own (Amazon, $3.99)
Never was there more star power on the North Fork than when they filmed scene’s for the Brad Pitt-Harrison Ford thriller “The Devil’s Own” in Greenport. One of Captain Bob Hamilton’s fishing boats was used in the sequence.
Emergence, Season 1, Episode 1 (Hulu)
They call it Southold, but much of this supernatural police thriller was filmed in New Jersey. Still, right from the start of the pilot episode you’ll see some recognizable local locations.
Girls, Season 3, Episode 7 (HBO NOW)
It seems like ages ago, that the popular HBO series Girls filmed an entire episode about a trip out to a beach house on the North Fork. Like most episodes of the show, they fight, they dance and they deliver a few good chuckles.
The Sopranos, Season 5, Episode 7 (HBO NOW)
While each of these episodes and movies filmed on the North Fork are of varying quality, there’s no denying The Sopranos’ place on the Mount Rushmore of television. While it’s not supposed to be the North Fork, this episode features scenes filmed at Riverhead Raceway.
The Path, Season 2, Episode 13 (Hulu)
Greenport was buzzing when Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul filmed scenes for his follow up series on Front Street back in 2017. The series depicts members of a fictional cult-like religion. The Greenport scenes are supposed to take place elsewhere
The Romantics (Amazon Prime)
There’s plenty of star power and North Fork scenery in this otherwise disappointing romantic comedy from 2010. You might recognize some familiar faces as extras and The Old Field Vineyards as the wedding destination.
The Undoing (HBO NOW), Premieres May 10
We don’t know too much about this limited series, but the trailer shows scenes filmed in East Marion and its release date comes at a time when you might be running out of things to watch. It also stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant. Not too shabby for something filmed on the little, old North Fork.
