- 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?

Designated Survivor, Altered Carbon, Fargo (if you can stop shouting “why are you all so stupid? at the screen), Better Call Saul, Brooklyn Nine Nine, The Expanse, The Alienist, Narcos, Star Trek Discovery, River and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (but it depends on who the guest comic is)Posted 7 months agokcrMember
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 7 months 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 7 months 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 7 months ago
