- Netflix recommendations
If you enjoy Sci Fi:
Just finished Lost In Space, enjoyed it, good old fashioned Sci-Fi romp.
The Expanse is also great, Season 2 is excellent
Star Trek Discovery is pretty good too – the central premise is a bit silly but its very slickly put together.
Stranger Things probably counts as sci-fi too and is well worth a look.
Plenty of other good stuff on their too.
Ozark has just started season 2 and is very goodPosted 9 months agoCougarSubscriber
Amazon prime is killing it with movies and tv shows
I had a Prime trial recently. Everything I found on there that I wanted to watch wanted further payment (including a TV series from back in 1999!). I literally couldn’t find a single thing I wanted that was included in the subscription.Posted 9 months ago
Looking forward the film Hold The Dark – from today.
Really enjoying BCS S4. Fabulous, unshowy and unpredictable.Posted 8 months agodeadlydarcyMember
Yep, the notification for Hold The Darkdropped into my inbox today. I thought I recognised the name of the director, Saulnier so IMDB’d him. And yep, he directed Blue Ruin a few years back which was one of the best revenge genre films I’ve seen. I’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t seen it.Posted 8 months ago
Just watched the trailer at work (no sound), have no idea what its about but will definitely be watching it this weekend. I’m a sucker for anything wilderness based.
Okay so have you seen ‘Wind River’ on Netflix?
It’s excellent. Scripted by Taylor Sheridan of Hell or High Water / Sicario . Set in Wyoming, which was great for me as I visited that area last year.Posted 8 months agobutcherMember
I watched the first episode, thought, this is a bit weird, it might take me a few episodes to get into this… Then realised the 2nd episode is an entirely new story? Does it all get tied together, or is it just random? I opted out based on the latter.
Watched the Sinner instead, which is really good and not a big investment in time.
Narcos is pretty good.
Mr Robot if you like techy stuff, although the second season drags. Picks up a bit in the 3rd.
Really enjoyed Stranger Things, but not been too fussed about watching the 2nd series.Posted 8 months agoversesSubscriber
Black Mirror is basically a modern “Tales of the Unexpected” or “Outer Limits”. Each episode is a self-contained story with different characters, times and locations, the only connection between them is that the overall theme is about the potential for misuse of technology.
My current Netflix recommendation is Big Mouth, I only discovered it recently and it’s made me laugh a lot.Posted 8 months agodrlexMember
Finished watching “Maniac” last night. Enjoyed the performance of the main characters (Jonah Hill a more nuanced Ben Stiller) and the Eighties-evoking sets, but ultimately feel a bit short-changed by the ending. I’ll try to focus on the consolation of it not meandering on like “Lost”, and would still recommend it.Posted 8 months agoYoKaiserSubscriber
Goliath on Prime was very enjoyable. Also The Looming Tower. And American Gods as mentionened.
Just finished season 4 of Gotham and it was superb. The darkness has moved up a good few notches and the style and production is excellent.
Mindhunter was also a highlight this year. Again really nicely produced and shot.
For something a bit different then the Barkley Marathons was a great watch too.Posted 8 months ago
