- Netflix recommendations
Haven’t seen a thread for a while – Mrs Tyred and I looking for some new stuff to watch on netflix.
Random things what we like:
– Six Feet Under
– Handmaid’s Tale (season 1, season 2 got a bit silly)
– the films of Richard Linklater
– The Letdown
– Green Wing
sort of thing.
The Netflix menu is useless – if you like the sort of stuff above, what else have you watched lately that’s good?

How are you with subtitles?Posted 1 year ago
Breaking Bad, Just Call Saul.
Fargo (the series, not the film) Series one is particularly good.Posted 1 year ago
Subtitles – I can read.
Fargo – liked what I’ve watched, there’s a daunting amount of it though!Posted 1 year agomikewsmithMember

I don’t know if you like documentaries, but there are a few docu-series on Netflix that are as gripping as the classic box sets like Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
Making a Murderer: a crime story that twists and turns in a way that you would dismiss as too far fetched if it had been written as a work of fiction.
Wild, Wild West: the bizarre story of the Rajneesh cult in the USA, told first hand by the people involved. Includes a guru who owned 93 Rolls Royces and the biggest bioterrorism attack in US history.
The Keepers: the investigation of the unsolved murder of a nun in 1969, which explodes into a much bigger and very disturbing story. Brilliantly paced, with a series of cliffhanger revelations as the story unfolds.
The Staircase (another close up look at a man accused of murder) and Evil Genius (about the pizza delivery neck bomb robbery) are also worth a look.
I like the way the episodic documentaries have more time to get under the skin of their stories.Posted 1 year agotaxi25Member
Loads of good stuff already recommended.
At the moment I’m watching “the Vietnam war” really top notch documentary. Something you might think you know all about, but you don’t.Posted 1 year agohols2Member
Can’t remember which of these were Netflix, Amazon, or just cable, but decent tv shows.
Better Call Saul
The Good PlacePosted 1 year agofunkmasterpSubscriber
I’ve just finished watching Final Space and Disenchantment. Both quirky animated series that I enjoyed. Mooncake from Final Space may be the cutest (and most lethal) animated creature I’ve seen “chukadee”Posted 1 year agobig yimMember
Black mirror. Last chance u. Rick n morty. Black mirror. black mirror. black mirror and black mirrorPosted 1 year ago
Money Heist was a suprise. Long series though .
The Sinner is excellent on NOWTV.Posted 1 year agoolddogMember
Alias GracePosted 1 year agojimster01Member
Currently working my way through Gotham and Sons of AnarchyPosted 1 year agoCaherSubscriber
Gotham is pretty good.Posted 1 year agoajantomSubscriber
Disenchantment. A bit like Futurama does dungeons and dragons. Some recognisable British comedy actor voices in there if you listen.
Started off well, but maybe not enough laughs, and by the last few episodes it’d defo hit its stride. Really looking forward to series 2.
Final Space I’m not so sure about. Sone good ideas but no real character development, and not many laughs.Posted 1 year ago
I’m currently working my way back through the first few series of 12 Monkeys – great show, one of the best things that Syfy has turned out.Posted 1 year agoMerakMember
The Barkley MarathonsPosted 1 year agoChunkyMTBMember
Just finished Flint Town. Not bad.Posted 1 year agosenor jSubscriber
The Defiant Ones- dr Dre/jimmy iovine documentary is ace.Posted 1 year agodomwells27Member
Defiant Ones and and Barkley Marathons seconded.
Hip Hop Evolution is a nice 4 part docu if you’re into that sort of thing.
The staircase was very good, although after some further reading perhaps a little biased.
Didn’t really rate Evil Genius, intriguing story made incredibly dull.Posted 1 year ago
Just finished Flint Town. Not bad.
Incredibly well made but very depressing. Hard to argue with the bad stuff they’ve had thrown at them.Posted 1 year ago
ozark 2 is piling on the menace.
So much going off.
The debauchery in the first two episodes is already stacking up the odds.
Hope it keeps it up!Posted 1 year agotrailwaggerMember
13 Reasons Why, very good, gets a little long winded in the middle, the ending is worth sticking with it.Posted 1 year ago
