Bling Empire. I'm halfway into the first episode of S1 and I'm hooked. Flashy, sparkly, dazzling, mindless, and fun.

I agree! I watched the whole season in two days! The diamonds and bling are so gorgeous!

Penguin Bloom...excellent (IMO) movie based on a true story. Heartwarming if you like that sort of thing. :)

I'm getting into Korean dramas again. Start Up is very interesting, but long.
I love these dramas but sometimes they only show one season and no more... so kinda leaves you hanging. Some of the earlier dramas did end after a season. So unless it looks like it is going to end I try to stay away. I love the food themed dramas...

Not sure it already mentioned. The Danish show Rita. It's about a teacher who doesn't really have her stuff together.

I thought it was quite amusing
I find the more foreign language stuff you watch, the more you watch
ive watched a Mexican and then an Indian movie the other night
there is a whole world of non-English language stories out thre which is the best thing about Netflex

Oh poo
That kind of thing is very frustrating !
I read a review that NZ has one of the worst most limited selection of netflex so im sad you can't see these

I often see a thing come up on google ? Telling me how to make my netflex account work so it thinks im in another location but it looks too complicated for me

Most Asian dramas are not planned for multiple seasons. I think this is actually better for coherent storytelling.

Not sure about the “hidden” part (as I just discovered this) but is certainly a gem of a series is Peaky Blinders. This crime drama/historical fiction boasts a talented cast and is well written, imho.

Anyone watching "Firefly Lane"? We just finished watching it last night. It was pretty good. Sort of like a soap opera. Entertaining enough.

I started it this evening. I do like it but so far it has many things that are not in the book. But as always the book is always better

It is very different in some ways from the book. I don't want to give anything away but in one specific area it is quite different.

These are my fav series:
  • Sense8.
  • The OA.
  • Stranger Things.
  • Altered Carbon.
  • Mindhunter.

I really, really wanted to watch/like Altered Carbon. I persevered with season one because it was such a good story - but I couldn't make out a word of what they were saying. With season two I just gave up. I don't understand why program makers go to effort of making a program then film the scenes in such poor lighting with inaudible mumbling that you have no idea what's going on. Glad you are enjoying it, the story had a lot to offer.

New show dropped today on Netflix to celebrate Valentine’s Day and I thought this might be interesting for us bling lovers - it’s a show on modern Indian weddings and basically follows 6 couples as they plan these huge opulent weddings. Have only watched half of an episode so far but it’s interesting - no drama, more informational and the outfits and bling is beautiful.

- trailer if you’re interested!

Thank you:appl:
You got me at no drama =)2
Ill see if its available here

Edit !
Have added to my list
it looks a really nice one to watch when i can't sleep (i mean that in a positive way - as opposed to crime dramas or docos or soooky scary stuff or very in-depth drama that requires a lot of concentration)

That’s actually the perfect use for the show - watching it in a low pressure environment. I think the bling was best in episode 1, but the stories are sweet throughout.

I enjoyed it...up until the unexplained ending...while it's clearly a setup for another season, it really made me feel like I had wasted my time instead of wanting more.
