Finished the Flight Attendant. Really, really good.

We're thinking to try out Snowpiercer on Netflix next. Anyone watch it?

I watched S1. Wasn't a fan at the start but it got better. When S2 came out I was about to start watching when I found out my wife had started watching S1. But she was fickle and watching other shows. Eventually I re-watched S1 with her and now we're on E4 or 5 of S2.

Probably a bit of a spoiler, but Sean Bean is *not* in S1, but everyone pretty much knew he would be in S2. And, let me tell you, he's one sick mofo. Poor Kevin. I've said too much.

Started a new one called The One. Interesting premise. Horrible Rotten Tomato score. Wife loved it -- she binged through it in a few days and now re-watching S1 together.

By the way, Line of Duty is very good (although the whole arc of the Big Bad is a bit over the top). Final season (I think) came out in the UK, recently, can't wait till it's on Netflix.

I had never heard of Line of Duty, but the reviews are off the charts. Might have to check it out!

Yeah, every season they deal with over dirty cop. If you've seen The Bodyguard you probably won't even recognize Keely Hawes from that one.

This recommendation goes back a couple years but Dark on Netflix is a must watch. Heard it described as what Lost should have been.  Only 3 seasons (which of probably what Lost should have stopped at).

Dark was the brainchild of Director Baran Bo Odar and his writer wife/partner Jantje Friese. Their next collaboration is in the works: https://m.imdb.com/title/tt9319668/

Watched the pilot episode of "See" on AppleTV+. Not sure if I'll bother watching the E2. I've seen worse, but that's about it. Same deal with The Irregulars on Netflix (a bit of a re-imaging of Sherlock Holmes, with Watson being a hard-Donkey black dude). Not great.

Re-watching (and enjoying) Ted Lasso.

Apparently Mythic Quest is very good -- might try it tonight.

I watched Season 1 of Dark. It's certainly clever and good, not sure if I would classify it as "must watch". Quite crazy as well.

Did your watch it dubbed or captioned? Big difference. Also, keep watching. You think it's crazy now!

I believe I watched it dubbed. I don't think I'll be watching more. No doubt it's good, but I think I saw everything I needed to see.

Started watching Bordertown. Finnish, I believe. Not bad. Police detective who is quite obviously on the spectrum, but very good at noticing things and making connections. Story is very convoluted, though. I am just 2 episodes in and lost.

Bosch on Prime. 6 seasons with a 7th coming, and then a spin-off series has been announced. Starring Jacob's brother from Lost, and little Sophia from The Walking Dead (Carol's daughter), all grown up. Enjoyed this one a lot, looking forward to the next season.

Yeah, I've watched the first two or three seasons of Bosch. I find HDR content on Prime to be very dark (Bosch is HDR). The show itself is very good, but I'm not sure I see myself watching the rest of the seasons.

Watched the first episode of Yellowstone a couple nights ago. It's western/cowboy porn. If you like that kind of stuff you'll eat it up. Someone on Sens twitter recently said it was like GoT but with cows and horses. Don't see it. I might try another episode but only if my wife wants tp.

Last night I watched the pilot for Patriot (starring "Gordo" from For All Mankind, and a bunch of other familiar faces like "Locke" from Lost and "Red" from That 70s Show). It's very good for the type of show that it is. Just not sure I can watch it with my wife.

I'm re-watching Ted Lasso and enjoying it even more the second time around.

Didn't feel like watching the Oscars last night as I normally make a point of doing, so I watched Nomadland instead. Fantastic flick. I had it downloaded, but I think you can watch it on Disney+ Star (an extra add-on I believe).

Frances McDormand is amazing in it, as she usually is.

I watched the first episode of Shadow and Bone. It was pretty good (even though the main cast is a bunch of 20-something never-heard-ofs). Lots of Russian-sounding names and the costumes have a very post-revolutionary-Russia vibe. I really don't understand why because the guy who wrote the books certainly doesn't sound Russian.
