Box sets / series

The wife and I have watched some cracking stuff on netflix lately so thought I'd share what seems decent:-

* Peaky Blinders - Set in the 40's I believe it's like the Krays / gangster family of that time.

* You - Stalker with a difference- great watching

* Money Heist - Spanish with subtitles but a good watch.  A meticulous planned heist thought out by a mastermind.  Can him and his team pull it off?

* The Stranger - on episode 4 but it's quite intriguing rather than gripping.

* Black Mirtor - there are lots of independent episodes.  Some are great, some are ok and some are a bit pants.  They are all set in the near future.  I can list the ones we find good if anyone is looking to watch it.

What do you recommend when normal tv isnt cutting it?

There are some great Black Mirror episodes, and as you say, some mediocre ones. I liked the one with the robot dogs - MetalHead I think. Pretty dark though.

Others I rate, though you may have seen them, are Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul,  and Narco's (first 2 series). But my favourite by far is Stranger Things.

My rebuild thread I will try and keep up to date: here

Stranger things - last season was a bit pants but it's still cool.

Peaky blinders - awesome, just awesome. 

The walking dead - I still enjoy this, even tho it's way past it's best. 

Old school - the sopranos, still hard to beat.

Got to admit the wife and I liked Stranger Things and they mention a new series coming soon!

Haven't seen that black mirror yet… the star trek type one, car in a field one…. and the Street Fighter type one… really good… we will watch the metal head one next then 👍

Can you believe I still haven't watched Sepranos… is it something the wife and I would likely watch together?

Really rated breaking bad but by episode 15 or 20 (wife force feed me about 3 episodes a night) I gave up…

Agree on Black Mirror, some are really good and some are so-so.

The Good Wife is really underrated and has a lot of strong female characters in it, so the wife might like it. It takes a while to get going, but it's worth it.

My mother (quite elderly now) watched The Sopranos. At first she wasn't keen, but fell in love with it after a while.

The Wire is one of the best TV shows I have seen, but it's hard work at first.

Narcos is easy to watch, and good.
