you and others list loads of programmes I like suggesting similar taste but then throw Ozarks in which I honestly thought got worse and worse and the last series was awful (though I stuck with it because sometimes you just have to!).

Mr. Inbetween is another relatively unknown gem from Australia, I thought it was superb.
Seen that advertised on fox , I’ll give it a watch

Raised by Wolves looks very intriguing on HBO Max.

Looks like a very decent Sci-if series from Ridley Scott with echos of certain elements from the 'Alien' saga.

Just getting through the first episode now.

Looks very well made.

Currently watching Damnation on Netflix. Only one series unfortunately. Set in 1930s rural USA story of fight between farmers (organised by a ‘preacher’) and greedy industrialists, corrupt sherif, bankers etc. Excellent performances, production and direction.

Top 3 of all time would be:
Breaking bad
The sopranos
and probably less obvious - Money Heist.

For money heist, make sure you put it as original Spanish audio and then English subtitles. I think when I first tried to watch it it defaulted to the dubbed English and it was cringey and I turned it off after ten minutes. With the original a idiot though...wow. I’ve never been so on edge for a TV show, was fantastic.

Notable mentions for

Boardwalk empire
Peaky Blinders
Peep Show
Band of Brothers
Parks and Recreation
The Marvelous Miss Maisel

Has anyone watched the handmaids tale? Is it worth a watch?

I absolutely love Gomorrah, right up there with The Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad etc.
Romanzo Criminale is another good Italian series.
Gomorrah is quality. If you don't mind subtitles, checkout Das Boot

Yeah, we watched Money Heist dubbed into English and at times it was dreadful
