One for the HARLAN COBEN FANS.

It seems that he has just signed a longterm agreement with NETFLIX to adapt 14 of his books for mini-series and TV films. Coben has a certain following with over 75 million books sold.

Coben has already worked with Netflix on a mini-series called "safe" and "no second chance".

Hadn't realised it's based on the Gillian Flynn novel. Damn good read. Have they altered it much do you know?

No I hadn't realised at all. Interestingly, I thought more Tart's atmospheric subtly when watching it than Flynn. Wouldn't be a fan, funnily enough.. clearly need to give the book a go.

I'm sure it's utterly mesmerizingly excellent. [...] Reviews are positive though.
My wife loved it. Me...meh.

I have thoroughly enjoyed "The Good Place" (a Netflix original, I believe), with Kristen Bell and Ted Danson.

The Good Place is fantastic. I do like Bell and Danson is just great.

I started Maniac on Netflix... meh. Legion is better.

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

Enjoyed the 1st season of Jack Ryan. Billions has been pretty good. Just started Man in the High Castle. Season 1 of The Last Kingdom was good. Vikings has been pretty good. Handmaid's Tale is dark, but good. Deep State.

Maybe I need to find some comedies!!!
