    Watched the first 2 episodes of the sinner last night. That’s some fubar business. Waiting for kids to go to bed to carry on.

    Done mind hunter. Done suburra.

    Not crime but The Expanse is ace.

    Thanks for the recommendation, just watched the first series, really good.
    It really felt like they were in zero g, loved the language used.
    Can’t wait to watch the next series.

    thanks to the other thread, im currently watching, and desperately trying to love it as much as everyone else (but struggling) the Detectorists.

    Gotham,- just finished it, cant wait for more
    Star Trek – Discovery, pleasantly surprised by it
    Suits – Loved it
    A Typical,- just started it and liking it so far, kinda indie feel but amusing enough

    American vandal is worth a look. Most of my other recent favourites have been covered. Ozark is decent too.

    If you like that have a look at Star Trek Discovery. Watched the first one last night and it was very good.

    The trouble with netflix is you get sucked in to watching some utter rubbish. Last week it was Salvation (trust me the time investment won’t be rewarded by the ending), the last couple of days I’ve been off work and I’m watching Reign, which is terrible. Costume drama mixed with teen angst. It’s a horrific waste of time, but completely addictive. My daughters would probably like it, bit like The Next Step but in 16th century France.

    Northernmatt, been watching Star Trek discovery, really getting into it, not quite sure about the drive yet, looking forward to finding out why it was phased out of use.

    Tried getting into Orphan black but terrible acting and 5 seasons means I’m reluctant to commit to it.

    About four episodes into the new Star Trek.

    Some good stuff but it feels like they’re going too fast and throwing too much in. Is it worth sticking with?

    Anyone else spot the Hitchhikers’ nod in ep1 or 2?

    Nah, missed that. Klingon Poetry? Towels? Ravenous Bugblatter Beast (of Traal)?

    Currently on a free trial so I’ll binge on Star Trek, Stranger Things, Line of Duty then see what else is lying around.

    Just after they’d introduced the idea of the spore drive (which made me think of bistromathematics, obvs), there was a recorded video of some Starfleet personnel in peril.

    You could hear someone say “Zaphod’s dead” or similar. We had the subtitles on, might have been easy to miss otherwise.

    Finished it last night. It’s very good.

    Russian detective drama ‘method’ is actually quite enjoyable.

    Nowhere near as stilted or robotic as uk crime dramas.

    Unless you speak Russian, you’ll have to make do with subtitles.

    Though, from the actors demeanour and mannerisms, it could easily be overdubbed with a broad Scottish accent.

    Enjoyed the Sinner. Excellent start if a baggy middle, saved by a genuinely rewarding last couple of episodes.

    If only Twin Peaks: the return could’ve been as clever, creepy and so smartly put together.

    In fact the triple bill of Mindhunter, Ozark and The Sinner have been some of most enjoyable ‘telly’ I’ve ever seen.

    It’s a winning formula to keep the season lengths sub 12 episodes and the duration of each one to be as short as it needs to be.

    I’m on episode 4 of The Returned and so far it’s pretty good, there’s certainly a couple of dumb things you have to let pass but it’s just about involving and weird enough to keep you coming back for more.

    My guess would be that they run out of navigators

    Discovery feels nicely like Trek to me, certainly a lot more than the Abrams films – the last episode I watched even had an equivalent of Q.

    Just finished watching season 1 of Brooklyn 99, which was very funny with a great cast. I’m hoping the quality doesn’t slip for 2 / 3.

    We’ve been watching The Punisher recently. Better than the usual Marvel stuff.

    Fauda is excellent, best show I’ve seen on Netflix. Make sure you select the subtitled version, not the awful dubbing.

    Ozark very good too as is Stranger Things.

    I really enjoyed Stranger Things 1 until it all went a bit batshit at the end… Would i like Season 2?

    I preferred Season 2 but not sure how it compares on the batshit scale as I found neither seasons to be batshit.

    Don’t think anyone has mentioned “glitch”, an Aussie take on the returned from the dead theme, we enjoyed it, and season 2 has just become available.

    monsters lurking behind lucid walls of a bungalow which when opened provide a gateway to a whole other dimension is not batshit!?

    It doesn’t. Best comedy for years.

    Brooklyn 99 is entertaining, but

    Best comedy for years.

    it is not. It’s simply too predictable, simplistic and rigid. It feels like an episode of Roseanne at times.

    I’m sure it’s been mentioned here, but Rik and Morty possibly fits that accolade.

    CBWTB: Cheers for the heads up on series two of The Glitch. I enjoyed the first series.
