Looks like we are all going to have a bit of free time on our hands.

What do you recommend watching?

Moving away from the obvious* I really enjoyed Animal Kingdom on Prime, real no-brainer stuff but entertaining. I have to catch up with the latest eps of Homeland and Strike Back too. 

*Lovejoy, London's Burning, Minder etc obvs

Anyone seen the OA on Netflix?

Still not sure how I feel about it, sometimes it seems to be the stupidest thing I have ever seen yet I keep going back for more.

Parks & Rec

Man City: All or nothing is good if you haven't seen it yet, they have similar shows based on NFL teams and the all blacks

Narcos sounds like it might be up my street. 

It’s a great show. I was watching it thinking “this is a bit far fetched” but the most ridiculous stuff was actually true. Escobar‘s antics and the money he was making was utterly crazy.

There are also loads of sport documentaries on Amazon. Netflix is a bit light on sport, but Sunderland ‘till I Die is worth a watch. Just skip the part where we play them....

Locke and Key on Netflix, based on the Joe Hill (Stephen King's soon) book.

I like the Picard series on Prime

The Marvellous Mrs Maisel is very funny and James May going around Japan was a nice mini series.

If you are into podcasts and horror, there is a great series on BBC Sounds. It's loosely based on HP Lovecraft stuff, but it interweaves real characters and events into the narrative and is set in contemporary times. The conceit is that they are running an investigative podcast called the Mystery Machine. The first season is called The Case of Charles Dexter Fletcher and the second season is called Whisperers in the Dark and I loved it.

Not sure if it's even available on paid-for streaming sites but if you can get Dexter to watch from the beginning you won;t regret it.

Sooooo close to being a cracking series about our promotion winning right-back in 97/98 and the erstwhile Sky Sports presenter and the exploits of their unorthodox detective agency; They don't play by the traditional rules - but they get results

Yeah when it was good it was amazing, when it was bad it was really stinky.

I really struggle to get into tv series. 

I don't know what you have already seen but Ex-Machina is on Netflix. I also liked In the Shadow of the Moon and The Circle.

Was good until the last episode. Very rushed finale I thought.

Currently near the end of season 2 of El Chapo. 
It’s good, as long as you can get over the terrible dubbing that doesn’t match the subtitles. 
 

Also currently on Better Call Saul. 
Highly recommended. 
 

Recently watched The Witcher. 
Very much enjoyed that and looking forward to series 2.

Enjoyed all of those.  Narcos and Narcos Mexico in the same vein.  Also I quite liked Queen of the South although it's a bit more of a soap opera.

Narcos and Narcos Mexico, both Netflix Originals and fantastic.

 

The Man in the High Castle, great historical sci-fi. Amazon Prime.

 

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Netflix, darker brilliant comedy.

 

Dark Tourist. Netflix original travel show.

Dexter peaks with Jon Lithgow I think, incredible performance. The last 2 seasons we're pretty poor.

That’s a great shout! The first season is a bit meh, but it’s amazing once Danny DeVito joins.

I noticed the other day that Channel 4 Player, or whatever it is called, is putting up all the seasons of Seinfeld. Certainly an acquired taste, and not everyone will find it funny, but for me a great show.

It is a TV series, although each one is watchable as a stand alone I suppose, try The Haunting of Hill House

Good film until the last 5 minutes. It felt like someone said, “that’s quite enough of that” and it stopped.  Sorry I was talking about the film not the series.

Oh really? Each episode is stand alone? I do love that, I really like Black Mirror because no episodes are linked. All their own stories.

Just watch the episode called the broken neck lady then decide if you want to watch it all. There's an u derliying story through out but you just about watch it out of order

Stumbled across  ‘The English game’ on Netflix. Set in Victorian times, the late 1870s and is about the development of football as we know it and the class divide that played a huge factor in the early stages of football.

Its and easy watch. Not too demanding with a number of sub plots around the love lives of various real life characters plus the exploitation of the mill workers by the wealthy owners and the consequent cost.

So far I’ve watched 3 episodes and I’m enjoyed it so far......

Just watched the remaining  three episodes. It’s an excellent series. Well worth watching it.

Only one well known actor in it Anthony Andrews plus Kate Dickie who played Lisa Arryn in Game of Thrones. 

Thoroughly recommended!

No way!? I started watching it on Amazon Prime a few months ago then it vanished. Might have to watch it 👍

Seinfeld is genius - probably the best sitcom ever and one of the best TV shows ever! :wub:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The X-Files are brilliant shows and definitely worth watching if anyone hasn’t seen them before.
