    @lyra I started tidelands and thought it was ok, and started & finished hill house and it was awesome! Though I was bawling my eyes out at the end lol. Definitely scary, but soo good.

    Also finished: Paddington (ehh so-so), birdbox (ok)
    Started: Ozark S1 (its ok so far, reminds me of breaking bad)

    Has anyone started watching Tidying up with Marie Kondo? I love her approach and attempt to follow it as much as possible with young kids and collector if a hubby.

    Loved Ozark and Russian Doll and You. Enjoyed Dirty John. Hard to believe it was based on a true story.
    Will check out the others you have recommended @telephone89 thanks.

    Winter has been horrible, so I've been doing more netflix binging...
    -After life: Ricky gervais drama-dy. Binged in one night, somber premise but I enjoyed the wit and it was surprisingly funny.
    -Dog Days: doggy related rom com. Not great, but entertaining.
    -Always a witch / Siempre Bruja: I enjoyed it, but it got some controversial reviews.
    -My big fat greek wedding 2: Pretty awful tbh lol. But if you liked the first one its a good recycle.
    -Age of adeline: Ok I super enjoyed this one. Kind of like what happens after tuck everlasting.
    -Losers: It's ok. If youre bored why not.
    -Broadchurch s3: Finally finished this. Didn't like S3 as much but I really appreciated the topics it brought up related to consent, etc.

    I also saw Girl on a Train and Winters Bone were available, so I'll probably watch those (again) this week.

    As a side note, The 100 comes back May 1 (in canada), so I'm pretty excited for that. The OA s2 comes back next week, and Santa Clarita diet at the end of the month.

    @telephone89 do you get HBO? Loved Barry and season 2 is available March 31st. The Night Of also enjoyable. And Game of Thrones will be returning soon too.


    Sorry winter has been tough. I too am looking forward to nicer weather and can't wait to be able to resume cycling and other outdoor adventures.:appl:

    @missy I used to have my father in laws HBOGo account but I don't think we have it any more unfortunately lol. I'll see if we still have it, and if so check those out! I will definitely be watching GOT, but usually download each episode after they come out.

    I have to rewatch all of GOT because I don't think I remember enough details to start the new season till I do.

    It's a favorite of mine. Each season is funnier than the last.

    Loved After Life beyond all reason. Could be my strange sense of humour, but it had a vulnerability that really worked.

    I really liked it too! When I was explaining the concept to my husband after watching the trailer he was so not into it, but we binged it in like one or two nights and he also really enjoyed it.

    I started watching Nashville, because I like to binge longer series lol. It's surprisingly good, and I don't even like country music. I think I'm on S4 now.

    Watched OAs2 and really liked it. Way better than the first season IMO.
    Watched "black summer" which is filmed in Alberta and was pretty cool. Like an indie walking dead. It's apparently a prequel to another show (z nation) which I have not seen.
    Watched Sabrina s2 and loved it.
    Watched Santa Clarita s3 and it was ok. Still just as gory.
    Started you vs wild with bear grills. This is kind of a stupid show slash video game lol. He goes into the "wild" and will give you 2 choices for survival (ie swing across the ravine a la tarzan on a vine, or walk across the rickety log bridge). It's sorta interesting I guess. But not overly so.

    Started "if I hadn't met you" but it's really slow to start. I'll probably try to watch more because I like the idea (time travel/butterfly effect).

    I really liked that too!

    It actually made me a little teary eyed as well.

    I watch weird stuff on there at times. I liked the Order and I also liked Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot.

    Disclaimer: very inappropriate and lots of profanity

    Ali Wong Baby Cobra
    Ali Wong Hard Knock wife

    She a comedienne and that I appreciate her act, and agree with a lot of the things she has said about pregnancy and giving birth tells you a lot about me.

    Bumping this!!

    It's been a while since I've posted, so there are probably a bunch of shows I'm forgetting.

    -Black spot: french (dubbed english) murder/cop show with some mysterious celtic connections. 2 seasons, both are a bit different from each other, but I loved it.
    -Stranger things newest season (3? 4?): It started slow IMO, but I enjoyed it. In the very last scene make sure you watch through the credits.
    -OITNB s 7 & 8: I stopped watching after s6, but wanted to watch the newest season, so went through s7. It's ok. I'm enjoying s8 though. Much more interesting now that some folk are out.
    -Mad men: late on this one. Watched the entire series lol. Starts out very slow, but I was pretty into it by the second season. I miss when shows had 20+ episodes a season!

    Upcoming:
    Mindhunter s2!!! I'm so excited for this one. It's about the first people who start profilng serial killers in the FBI.

    I need some new rec's people! Share what you've been watching!

    I second Russian Doll, also Travelers.
    I enjoyed the Ali Wong movie Always be my baby (loved the Keanu scenes!).
    With my kids we watch the Flash, and then got into Legends of Tomorrow which first I though was throwaway, but as time gone on become a real fan (it doesn't take itself too seriously, which appears to be the key difference between DC tv shows and Marvel Movies, and crappy DC movies).

    If you like food documentaries Ugly Delicious by David Chang, Street Food, and the latest Chef's Table (which seems somehow more political than other seasons, can't get away from politics).
    I also really enjoyed "behind the curve" which is a documentary about flat earthers. It does go into the psychology of how can someone believe conspiracies, or have firmly held beliefs that go against what seems to be common sense.

    Now we are into How to Get Away With Murder which is really good IMO. Thinking about starting The West Wing when we are done.

    cool thread
    thanks to everyone who posted suggestions
    i plan to study it because you'r right
    navigating netflex is really hard
    i seem to be caught in a loop of college and romantic comedies because i watched a couple of movies with Jennifer Aniston when i couldn't sleep and its driving me crazy

    i got netflex to watch Springsteen on Broadway which of course is beyound excellent

    i really enjoyed grace and frankie

    and then the one with Sam Elliot - the ranch
    i loved that - a modern American comedy i can actually relate to plus we love Sam Elliot

    then the British Derry girls is awsome - season 2 just came out - if you'r Cathloic or old enough to remember the troubles in Northern island or you remember popular music from the early 1990s i thougherly recomend it, its very well written and i actually laughed out loud which is very unusual for me

    if you havn't seen it on pbc call the midewife i think is available on US netflex is another excellent British drama - it tackles the problems facing a poor neighbourhod durring the 50s and 60s including relevant social issues with much kindness- also it is written with strong female characters of all ages which makes it just so enjoyable and a joy to watch even if i cry every episode
    Doc Martin is also good as i missed most of this when it screened on tv here

    a movie i would recomend is The Pad man
    its a true story about an Indian husband who is appalled about the arrangements his new wife has to go through at that time of the month and he sets out with zero supoort and much disapproval to make femine hygene products accessable to poor communities
    its really funny but also eye opening and sad
    (there is also a doco about the real man on netflex)
    its Indian so there is a tiny bit of singing and dancing and it might be subtitled but its a really good watch
    of course once you watch one Indian film you get a lot of suggestions popping up but alot of them are great and thats what i like about netflex
    the non English speaking world is full of talent we just have to find it

    the Spanish high seas is also great
    ive read complaints about the English dubbing but i watched it in Spanish and read the subtitles
    ive always loved foreign films so reading subtitles isnt a problem for me

    Not a "hidden gem," but we're watching "The Family" tonight. Thought-provoking.
