    Can highly recommend Dark - a German but dubbed in English thriller



    Travelers

    Mindhunter is really good. Just finished watching it.

    Push through the first episode and you'll find it strangely addictive.

    Enjoyed Dark a lot, although I lost track of what was what near the end. Still not entirely certain, but I guess that's the idea still. We watched in German with subtitles, I can't get on with dubbing at all.

    Mnidhunter, like above you need to to get over a crap first ep

    Manhunt:Unabomer, decent especially if you dont really know the details of the real case

    Making a murderer, huge Doc showing a real life murder case, found it fascinating

    American Vandal, Mocumentary lampooning the current craze for true crime docs. starts off childish and silly but likeable characters and I actually started wanting to know what happened

    I got a bit bored of the Unabomber, while I liked the start and the end it kind of died off a little bit when they were trying to play games.

    Watching it now.


    Not sure. It's a strange one for me, because although I quite like it, I am on episode 5 and I haven't laughed once.

    I just sort of smile at it, yet don't find it funny much at all.

    Starting watching "I am Innocent". It's not on the Making a murderer level but it is pretty good.

    The second one was scary!

    Shot in the Dark, an interesting documentary following 'news chasers' or Stringers around LA.
    Raises some interesting moral dilemmas about press intrusion.

    LA 92 has been added in the last few days, the documentary about the LA riots. Always been fascinated with that kind of era so looking forward to that.

    Couldn't get into Altered Carbon at all despite it seemingly being right up my street. Couldn't manage past the second episode.

    I agree, I persevered, (or commuted), wasn't sure in the end still as to being good or bad

    Godless is a decent watch.

    I watch its always sunny in Philadelphia almost on a daily basis even though I've seen it so many times.

    Enjoying mindhunter right now. Three episodes in but love the character development

    Moving away from Netflix for a minute and on to Amazon, Sneaky Pete is back on today for a new series.

    Can't wait! It's a great programme and I highly recommend it.

    Just watching Flint Town at the moment. What a desolate shithole that town is.

    Every episode released for streaming at the same time too.

    Will blitz 3 episodes or so.

    I've been waiting for this to come back for ages. I must talk about the first season more than I thought I did as I've had 5 people text me since yesterday saying that season 2 is out!
