The story behind Icarus is incredible... The story is so unbelievable it didn't seem real. If you have any interest in the Olympics or sports in general it's a must watch documentary.
Having spent a long time in the athletic performance industry, let my assure that it was very real; at least the discussions about how prevalent and easy PED use is. The other stuff?...well, Russia is a different place.

Thanks for all suggestions.

We watched Lilyhammer last night and loved it.

We were going to watch Fargo, but were prompted to pay...is that normal?

I've never been prompted to pay anything extra on Netflix. Amazon Prime, yes.

More normal than watching exercise or outdoors shows.

Where does normal fit in the universe derived from the Coen brothers?

EDIT! (gotta work on my literacy skills)

Prompted to pay on Netflix? Very to the point of unheard of unusual. On Amazon that's pretty common since restricting your searching/browsing to just free-with-Prime is difficult or impossible.

The Ranch.

It took me a couple episodes to warm up to it but now I am hooked. Sam Elliott's character is the best IMHO.

Currently watching Season 2 of The Crown.

For those with Amazon Prime, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was excellent!!

Yes, good ending. I like it when a series ends with clarity instead of leaving it open to interpretation (think Sopranos).
My wife and I hated the ending... Most of it made no sense to us, didn't match our perception of the main characters. We read afterwards that this triggered one of those big fans controversies on the Internet. But we really enjoyed the show overall, great acting. I started to read some of the corresponding novels.

Excellent show. San Junipero may be, in my opinion, the best tv episode I have seen. Completely surreal. I will recommend people watch it twice to pick up on all the things they missed the first time (one thing I still haven't seen mentioned on the internet is that it's always a full moon in San Junipero, an obvious tip off). Small, otherwise throwaway lines, take on a new meaning in context.

Season 4 was excellent but at times a bit depressing, consistent with the rest of the show, particularly "Metalhead". I most enjoyed "Hang the DJ".
The San Junipero episode was quite impactful. It seemed to start out slow then at some point you realize what is going on and you are totally sucked in.

I enjoyed the first episode of season 3 also, kind of sums up my feeling of social media taken to its ultimate end.

Can’t wait to dive into season 4.

A toss up between Dark (Stranger Things but with time travel and older kids) and Godless (western). Netflix has been doing a great job with content this past year.

Unless there's another show called Shamless, Shameless is available to stream. And I would agree, it's amazing.

Casa de Papel

At the start you might think it's a cross between Run Lola Run and Mission Impossilble.By the end of the first episode those impressions start to fade and by the end of the second they are gone. A very twisty crime of the century series. Note you must be subtitle tolerate or have Spanish.

Yes I’ve watched that entire series. If you can get past the main characters being responsible for most of the significant IT developments in the past 30 years it is a good show.

Dark is also really interesting. It's a German show overdubbed with English, so that was a little off putting at first, TBH. But the premise is pretty interesting and I'm definitely hooked after 6 episodes. I think I would have been disappointed if I had been told it was like Stranger Things, though. It's much darker and totally devoid of humor (thus far).

We watched Lilyhammer last night and loved it.

We were going to watch Fargo, but were prompted to pay...is that normal?

I've never been prompted to pay anything extra on Netflix. Amazon Prime, yes.
The only time Netflix has asked us for money is if we try to stream and our kids already have 2 streams going. then it offers us the chance to upgrade to 3 simultaneous streams for added monthly fee.

Dark is amazing. Ideally, switch to German w/English subtitles to watch. Also, try to get through an episode and a half before deciding to drop it - the first episode doesn't even really reveal the nature of the series, though it does open some interesting questions.

I just finished Season 2 of Better Call Saul, which is the latest available on Netflix. A quick google search suggests that Season 3 will show up on Netflix a few weeks before Season 4 is released on AMC. Hopefully, that will occur around the end of March.

In the mean time, I just started binge watching Halt and Catch Fire.

This show hits home, it's very good. No explanations are needed - I know the background well.

I just finished watching Manhunt: Unabomber. It was very well done and focused on the FBI agent who developed the new field of forensic linguistics to track down the Unabomber.

It was particularly interesting to me because in the summer of 1995 I was working at a large tech company in the Bay Area. We were evacuated mid one afternoon for a thankfully false Unabomber scare.

Dreamland is a hilarious Australian office comedy about a hapless team trying to build major infrastructure projects, painfully accurate for anyone who's worked in public service on any continent.

Norsemen is an exceptionally violent deadpan Norwegian Viking comedy, a bit like Monty Python but for Norwegians instead of Brits (and with the less-famous Norwegian sense of humor)

Six part Netflix documentary series "Dirty Money". Series is fascinating exploration of recent scams & scammers. Episodes cover payday loan practices, bank money laundering of drug cartel money, Volkswagen cheating on diesel emission tests, pharmaceutical company shenanigans, sticky business in the Canadian maple syrup industry, and the dealings of a multimillion dollar con-man.

I've been amazed how much that I thought was filler came backto play a major role later on. Had no idea that an old dude with a bell on his wheel chair was going to play such a major role.

I was more referring to an episode mostly about someone chasing a fly the whole time. May have showed obsession or something, but I thought it was a waste.

Working our way through to catch up with The Crown.
Very well done.
As with many books/movies like this, we always wonder how accurate some of the behind the scenes portrayals are, but the big picture itself is so interesting.

And we are waiting, waiting for the return of Billions.
Fascinating intersection of several "parts of life": finances, politics, interpersonal behavior...

I am late to the party, but I am watching Breaking Bad.
Great show, great ending. Lots of filler episodes though. May have been the point, but I'm not sure.
I've been amazed how much that I thought was filler came backto play a major role later on. Had no idea that an old dude with a bell on his wheel chair was going to play such a major role.
I was more referring to an episode mostly about someone chasing a fly the whole time. May have showed obsession or something, but I thought it was a waste.
Okay, I’ll give you that one.

Am halfway through the new season of Frankie and Grace and loving it. Particularly the story line about Grace’s need for a knee replacement and her total denial of the reality of her situation. Also her friend’s worsening dementia. The show is doing a great job of portraying the drip... drip... drip of aging.

Also, any fans of mysteries will love Broadchurch. Twists and turns galore!

+1 on Sherlock Holmes. I think Benedict Cumberbatch nails it ... every single time!
