I have also enjoyed the newest Ricky Gervais series. I don't like him at all, but found After Life genuinely amusing.
I liked this too.

I’m from Hampstead and it was all filmed on my old stomping ground. My primary school is right next to the garage where the smack head lived.

Recommendation for Amazon Prime (used to be on Netflix) is the Expanse - really good sci-fi.
Netflix, i enjoy Star Trek Discovery more than i thought i would.

I am a big fan of The Good Place. It's an American comedy, but far from standard sit com. I also have a sneaking love of iZombie and The Santa Clarita Diet. I spent yesterday debating with my nephew the best lines from The Santa Clarita Diet, the conclusion was "teen-agers! They even make the apocalypse about them". As for films, What We Did On Our Holiday is on there, Billy Connelly, David Tennant, Rosamund Pike. Or the greatest terrible 80s film of all time... The Night Of The Comet. Plot holes everywhere, diabolical script. I love it. I tend to stay clear of the more serious stuff on Netflix, though reading back I may have a zombie issue.

I find both Netflix and Amazon prime are 90% filler and and about 10% good stuff.

Usual routine when I want to watch a film is to flick through the new releases going “looks shite, looks shite, looks shite, hmmm might watch if I can’t find anything better, looks shite, looks shite etc.”

Then I flick over to Amazon Prime and do the same.

And then I find myself watching a 1970s documentary about the holocaust because there is **** all else that looks like it’s worth a watch.

I feel like they’re both geared up for making bingeable series and the films tend to be an afterthought.

Having said that I still pay my 10 quid a month like a mug. Amazon is basically a freebie that we get because we buy so much crap off there, it’s worth having Prime.
But did you, after an eternity of fruitless searching, stumble across a real gem.
Then on selecting it you realise it's not available on Prime & you have to pay to watch, rent or own it. :frustrated::censored::frustrated:

Just watched 'The Inmate'. It's a short one series drama about a Mexican prison. In Spanish with subtitles. I thought it was great. Also NSU German History X. In German with subtitles. Based around the murders of the so called National Socialist Underground last decade.Three seasons offering a different perspective of events as it unfolds. Worth watching.

There's a fair bit of foreign made stuff on Netflix which I find refreshing.

But never pay full price, there are allways offers going on for 2 for 1 months etc so worth paying a year in advance if you can
Better yet. Sign up for monthly payment. Immediately cancel. It will offer you a full year for about £40. If it doesn't, sign up, cancel again, and keep doing it until it gives you the offer.

Last three years have worked including this year. Works on any package too.

I’m a bit more concerned about “Amazon recommends” it’s just tried to push some socks a walking poles on me.

Fingerless mittens and light switch actuators for unmodernised homes? :)

I just went into Netflix's "Childrens and Family Movie" section. The first movie to come up was "Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom".

Nothing says family friendly viewing like ripping out hearts and lava sacrifices.

Any good? I'm tossing up between watching that or getting back into Black Mirror (Only watched the first season, didn't really do much for me).

Tried watching Stranger Things last night. First episode is like every stereotypical 80's shlock horror movie and gave up after that. Already saw a bunch of kids battling against paranormal creatures in "Super 8" and didn't think much of that either.

Watched it last night. A bit slow moving in parts, but enjoyable anyway. Thanks for the tip.

Yes. Big budget cyberpunk. It plays with some very interesting concepts if sci-fi is your thing
