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 2 years ago
Breaking Bad, Just Call Saul.
Fargo (the series, not the film) Series one is particularly good.Posted 2 years ago
Subtitles – I can read.
Fargo – liked what I’ve watched, there’s a daunting amount of it though!Posted 2 years ago
Having a prime binge at the moment, worth a swap for 3 months?Posted 2 years ago
Oh, yeah. Orphan Black.Posted 2 years ago
Season 1 was pretty good and Season 2 starts a week today.Posted 2 years ago
Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown is fantastic! Archer, Rick & Morty, Arrested Development are the main mindless things I watch.Posted 2 years ago
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 2 years ago
Narcos, Happy, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, I’ve just finished watching Bordertown, really good Finish crime drama.Posted 2 years ago
Mindhunters is worth a watch.Posted 2 years ago

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 2 years ago
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 2 years ago
Can’t remember which of these were Netflix, Amazon, or just cable, but decent tv shows.
Better Call Saul
The Good PlacePosted 2 years ago
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 2 years ago
Black mirror. Last chance u. Rick n morty. Black mirror. black mirror. black mirror and black mirrorPosted 2 years ago
Money Heist was a suprise. Long series though .
The Sinner is excellent on NOWTV.Posted 2 years ago
Alias GracePosted 2 years ago
Currently working my way through Gotham and Sons of AnarchyPosted 2 years ago
Gotham is pretty good.Posted 2 years ago
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 2 years 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 2 years ago
The Barkley MarathonsPosted 2 years ago
Just finished Flint Town. Not bad.Posted 2 years ago
The Defiant Ones- dr Dre/jimmy iovine documentary is ace.Posted 2 years ago
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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago
13 Reasons Why, very good, gets a little long winded in the middle, the ending is worth sticking with it.Posted 2 years ago
