The Umbrella Academy on Netflix is very enjoyable and quite funny.

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

The OA, series 2 on Netflix. Any fans of the first series?

The second series has the same mysterious hold and the writing is excellent as is the cast, old and new.

I watched the first 3 episodes back to back last night, was up till the wee hours.. great stuff!

Just finished Season 1 of Into the Badlands and enjoying it. If you like martial arts and dystopian sci-fi, then you will probably like this.

All of Blake’s 7 is on YouTube. Overacting, wobbly sets, schoolboy crushes Jenna and Servalan. What’s not to like.

Titans on Netflix is pretty good too, quite a bit darker than the DC-based offerings on TV right now. I was a big fan of Arrow and The Flash early on, but got sick of the constant moralising.

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

I just finished "Trapped" series 2 on Netflix. Just as good as series 1. Great scandi noir.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trappe...dic_TV_series)


Also "Last Breath" https://www.netflix.com/sg/title/80215139

(though not a series) was also amazing. Everyone should see it.

Agree, enjoyed it enormously. And Season 2 is scheduled for June this year!
Watching episode 1 now - crap! A severely face-lifted Meryl Streep doesn't help.

She gave in too? I used to admire her for knowing to age with grace...

It's almost painful to watch some older actresses these days. - Helen Mirren, Meg Ryan etc.

I watched it last night too.. methinks Streep will run away with it. She's on top form.. the evil nice lady.

Do you know, thought I was a bit harsh as I'm a Streep fan. So watched the first 2 episodes again . Must have been in a bad mood the first round, as am now hooked again...

Finale yesterday was a bit of letdown somehow , despite great acting. Seemed to only be focused on the next season. The reviews generally agree (careful, spoiler):

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/07/21/e...iew/index.html

But will still be addicted to any forthcoming 3rd season

Not seen it yet, so read your post with one eye closed..

It'll have to wait until the end of the week. And after that, I will begin Stranger Things, Series 3, on Netflix.
