    Ah, that's too bad. Season 5 episodes do appear to be available now here in the US, but I am waiting for the whole season to finish before signing up for a month and binging them.

    just loved DARK and 'the VVitch' (as they spell it - you may need it for a search) on netflix.

    recently was watching the medici one and it's a let down mostly

    The Joker is superb for those with Sky.. it’s recently been moved to Sky Cinema from Box Office, so is somewhat cheaper.

    Eames: The Architect & The Painter on Prime, an interesting documentary about two of the 20th century’s finest and most interesting designers/innovators. Worth a look as it goes way beyond the wonderful chairs with much history some may not be aware of.

    The programme-makers frigged around with the spine of The Outsider And Others though... :)

    Big Tabs “telling it like it isn’t...”

    apologies if previously mentioned.

    '6 Underground' available on Netflix.

    Michael Bay film with Ryan Reynolds.

    Lots of dramatic car chases, Parkour and scantily clad business. You can almost see where cars have been substituted for Transformers... the sound also has weighty bass notes straight out of 'insert Michael Bay film'

    It is fast-paced and is goodies against baddies with no complications.

    Certified '15' in the U.K. - closer to an '18' we reckon.

    there is colourful language, and oodles of c.g.i. gore / blood. :)

    there is also a Ryan Reynolds/Deadpool humour floating around, although any humour in 6 Underground is fleeting.

    I have seen the film 3 or 4 times so far.
    (on my own probably twice, once with daughter, once with wife )

    Throwaway flashy action with a dark humour attached.

    I think there will be more in this series.

    I have no real knowledge of the work you reference so I just enjoyed it for what it was.

    Been watching Dirty John, a series based on a true crime case with Eric Bana. A good show

    Have a go at Mr Mercedes if you like the outsider.

    Series 1 was excellent, watched 2 but not got to 3 yet, thought 2 got a bit strange/far fetched but not in an engrossing way.

    Different Outsider! Tv series of the King Outsider was very good, I thought - one of the best adaptations of his work.

    I've not seen any of this, quick synopsis? worth watching?

    BLACKMASS pfm Member

    In a dystopian, polluted right wing religious tyranny, a young woman is put in sexual slavery on account of her now rare fertility. Set in a Fascistic future America, The Handmaid's Tale tells the story of Kate, a handmaid. ... The job of a Handmaid is to bear the children of the man to whom she is assigned.

    Is it worth a watch? Yes but as I mentioned it's pretty brutal.

    Amazon picked up The Expanse after it was dropped by SyFy - the 4th series sticks closely to the book like previous efforts.

    I just watched the first episode of The Umbrella Academy (season 1).

    Quirky, well written and rather good, I think. Less frantic and formulaic than the usual Netflix Original series too.

    Does it maintain the quality?

    I enjoyed Season 1 a lot I'd say they maintained things all the way through, not started Season 2, yet saving it for a rainy weekend.

    Similar shows:

    Prime - The Boys (S2 due Sept 4th), Netflix - Titans 1 & 2 and STARZ - Dawn Patrol 1 & 2​

    Plus the whole bunch of Daredevil universe shows

    The Expanse is great - reminds me somewhat of the Battlestar Galactica remake which I also enjoyed. I enjoyed Dark, though I felt it lost the plot a bit in season 3.
