Comedy: The Office (US)
This rules out the rest of your suggestions. The original is great. The US version very much meh. At best.

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

House on Haunted Hill - Netflix, is rather brilliant.. finished the series last night.

Reminded me of the theatre at times, love the pacing and rapid change in focus, acting is excellent. It is an award winner, no question.

I've heard tons of good stuff about it but it boils down to i'm too chicken to watch it...but i might give it a go, watch it on mute with subtitles...lol
btw I finally saw 'the Bodyguard' i love Keeley Hawes but i found 'Line of Duty' better (also Jed mercurio, also Keeley)

House on Haunted Hill is not as scary as you think, just really well scripted, the story itself is more powerful.. with brilliant scary moments, I'll give it that.

Highly recommend it.

We started it last night with only the first episode. Intrigued, interested, not blown away yet, but again only one episode.

Just to clarify, we are talking about the new Netflix series The Haunting of Hill House, not the movie House on Haunted Hill, or some version of that?

yeah the TV show - i was confused too initially

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ha...se_(TV_series)


i've just braved myself to see the first episode, its not that bad (scarewise) but everyone looks the same (the mother, the daughter grown up) and the flipping back and forth time line makes it hard to follow. however it has potential.

It all falls into place rather well, creatively so.. watch out for one episode in particular, near the end.. really belongs on stage. Excellent.

Same here! I had to spend some time reading up on the episode after, and taking notes on the names to try and make some sense of it!

Attention span? What's that?

At the start, concentrate on the children, their conversations and interactions, not the house or the environment.. HTHs a wee-bit

Deadwind on Netflix is very good.
Loved that too. Lava Field was also good stuff.

The Little Drummer Girl on the BBC got off to a promising start, I loved The Night Manager, so was keen to see more from that production team.

I can totally agree! I just finished it and found it to be very well thought through. In the beginning there where a few rather boring ones where they introduced all the characters.
I wonder how and if continuation could work. Maybe the past of the house would be interesting...

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

I tried Money Heist. I stopped after 20 mins into the first episode.
Oceans 11 für Arme. Crap.
Started Prison Break, 4th episode. Quiet interesting

Finally finished Haunting of Hill House.


Overall very impressed, excellent writing, and acting, filming and cinematography very good. Highly recommend (that last episode I didn't care for). They used quite a few monologues--but they were almost all very moving!
