ZeroZeroZero - Gonna be in the conversation for the best of 2020. Created by Stefano Sollima who also did Gomorrah and Day of the Soldado. It follows the transcontinental journey of a cocaine shipment from the buyers (Italian mafia), sellers (Mexican cartel) and brokers (New Orleans shipping family). Visually stunning, tense as anything, violent as hell.
What's this on? And is it in English?

Anybody watched 11.22.63? Just started it today, premise is interesting.
Enjoyed it but in the end resented the premise being somewhat bait and switch
Episode 1 spells out how the main character can reset the clock but then he doesn't do it again until the final episode. It's more a period piece than sci-fi.

The book was definitely better, might be one of his best actually in some ways, but 11.22.63 the mini-series was still pretty good I thought.

Alex Rider : was a big fan of the books as a kid and was surprised to hear amazon made an 8 part series about it, more focused on point blanc this time, but i actually found it quiet good, was well shot, mature enough to not feel too kiddy, characters were ok...i hope they make a S2, probs give it a 7/10
It's nothing like the books, the series is much darker. I like it well enough, was really very gripping. Nice little twist in it.

Found Occupied on Netflix last week. Norway turns fossil fuel energy off to combat climate change & the EU get upset. Russia then begins a soft occupation to start the energy industry again. No spoilers here, this covered in the first 10 minutes. Surprisingly compelling, especially if you have any Nordic knowledge.

Gomorrah.

A brilliant Italian crime show based on Roberto Saviano's excellent book of the same name about the Neapolitan Mafia (or 'The Camorra'). I'd just read the book before starting the TV series and I was blown away by how accurately the show portrays a fictionalised version of some of the real life events and people that Saviano exposes in his book. This show is absolutely brutal and moves at a break neck speed - without ever being in danger of romanticising organised crime. I highly recommend this.
