Recently binge watched Sex Education. Terrific little series. It could have ended up being really trashy, but managed to make the viewer care about each character. Even characters that may have had you off side to begin with. Really well written and acted.

Also binge watched After Life. Not at the level of The Office, or Extras, but a lovely little series. Some genuinely beautiful scenes towards the end of the series.

I’m struggling to find something good to watch. I just can’t bring myself to watch a new series and get invested in.

Have you tried Line of Duty?
Yep I’ve seen that.

I’ve just finished Dark which was fantastic and Lucifier. I am watching Deadwood on stan but just feels like a lot of the shows on Netflix are aimed at teens such as The Originals, Secret Obsession etc

I've just finished Narcos: Mexico. Whilst I very much enjoyed it, they really do seem to be getting very half-hearted about their action sequences, some of the plot armour was ridiculous, and the various raids that happen fairly regularly are starting to look like recycled footage

I haven’t watched all of these, tend to pick and choose but the new season has just dropped with likes of Eddie Murphy and Seth Rogen.

The Ricky Gervais double ep is the best I’ve seen. Because he’s been on before he’s just so much more relaxed than all Jerry’s other guests that it’s just so good from the very start.

I just finished Dark too, I thought it was superb, probably the best TV I've seen in a long time. Quite apart from anything else, the casting is phenomenal. It may start off looking a bit generic in the first ep or two, but stick with it and it is so much more than that.

Halfway through the last episode of Money Heist, or Papa de Casal... Pretty ordinary to be honest and is a repeat of the first season. I enjoyed the first season, cant remember the second and cant wait to forget the third,

Started watching the new sci fi series Another Life last night, what a rippa show.
Im half way through and its one disaster per episode, in space, with a crew who simply cannot be the best people on the planet for going in to space to save the human race.

That communications officer (the latino chick) is too volatile to pass the psychological studies NASA put astronauts through, and the guy that Niko killed was a complete douche. But I'm enjoying it.

I've just started watching this one - I think I'm maybe 6 episodes into the first season. It's a weird mix of a show (it's often super dark, but also a lot of absurdist humour) and although I was a bit bummed that my wife wasn't into it, I'm VERY glad she didn't watch the microwave episode. Holy crap. That was heavy.

My MRS called me twisted for watching Happy!
Back in the day I remember watching true blood and thinking it was something else....the MRS watch it with me 2....ahe luved it
maybe the decent should never understand this show

Although it's not on Netflix (but on Stan), if you haven't checked it out I think you might enjoy Preacher. Has a really similar tone and sense of humour to Happy! and has a fair whack of creepiness to boot. And my wife really didn't enjoy that one either haha.
