Recommend Midnight Sun - Swedish crime thriller/ mystery. It is very good.

After the more understated and realistic acting of House of Cards Im actually finding it pretty annoying as its affecting my suspension of disbelief.

I gave up after 6 episodes, but not sure why.. will go back and watch the 7th and find out.

Know what you mean - it's exhausting, and rather tiresome, watching everyone in a complete tizzy every episode. 'Tis like reading a long-winded story with a zillion exclamation marks, order?!

This season will go until end of May 2017. They have announced that the final season will be Season 6, in 2018. Sigh!
Have watched the first episodes and I think it became even more interesting. There was a change in the way the main characters were constructed, they are bit more "human" now, more reflective.
Like it.....but for some reasons the opening credits still give me the creeps.. It makes the movie more exciting to watch though.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

Last one I saw was really very good: Black Sails
The first season isn't that good as the other three seasons but if you manage to watch all of the first season then you won't want to miss the next seasons because it's really addicted.

May or may not please y'all, but multiple spin-offs from Game of Thrones are being planned.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

Doctor Foster. (British drama on Netflix) The story is quite common - a cheating husband and a deeply hurt wife, but it's done brilliantly...some sort of "domestic" thriller. I mean, you can really feel this woman's feelings of betrayal...it could be anyone at the end of the day. Brilliant actress. Hats off.

Really into the legal drama The Good Fight. A spin off from the Good Wife which ran to 7 series.. although I never got round to watching the 7th series for some reason.

Three Girls, quite harrowing.

About the Rotherham mass sexual abuses of white teenage girls by Muslim Asian (to Americans, that's Pakistani//Indians).

I saw the first episode and loved it. Wonderfully weird and wacky

Actually, I wouldn't mind if it just stays like that, going nowhere and doing nothing..

The long and heavy - if not a tad scary - silences in some scenes are class.
