Ozark on Netflix. Just finished Season 1 (the only one so far) and it is amazing.
Besides that, again on Netflix - Stranger Things, The Expanse, Narcos, The OA.

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

Maybe still time to catch up or download "Man in the orange shirt" - was Monday on BBC 2 - very good drama in two parts.

For all you GoT fans who saw this week's episode with the loot train attack - you might like to see how it was done.

I know.. have not seen the last episode yet, savouring it. This series was really something.

Cormoran Strike on ITV last night was very well done. True to the book.

Don't know what you both were watching - since Strike is on BBC1!

Ah, mixed it up with Victoria then.. thought that was on BBC last night and Strike on ITV.

I thought at first Tom Burke wouldn't do as C. Strike, not being tall or burly enough.. but he's fine, no complaints from me

He's very burly. Seems quite tall. Though Holliday Grainger is probably short. Think Tara Fitzgerald (?) An odd choice though.

Could be longer than that. Rumour is sometime in 2019.

I had in my mind's eye a rough, less-polished blond Chris Hemsworth type tall 'n' burly.. but after watching the first episode, Tom Burke owns it. He'll do..

Hemsworth is too obviously pretty. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed the book. I've got the others now.

I did not like the second book, but the third was good. Hope there will be a fourth.

Thought the series was quite well done so far.
