Netflix Hidden Gems
Have you found a hidden gem of a movie, TV series, documentary or other video on Netflix? I am talking about the lessor and least known shows, many of them a decade or more older. Often we may have missed them for various reasons. Maybe TV watching was not high on our list when we worked. Perhaps the show was made in a foreign country and not readily available. Or show once on PBS and never again.
Please include shows on streaming and DVD.
My contribution is the British series made in the 80's called Enemy at the Door. It tells the story of the German invasion of the Channel Islands between France and England. It's quite well balanced. The Germans are not all blood thirsty killers. And some of the Islanders are nasty rascals who illicitly profit from their neighbor's misery.
The production quality is not as good as modern shows, a bit like the old TV soap operas. But, I find the characters and the stories interesting. Interestingly, we find John Nettles has a short part as a British policeman on the island. A precursor to his role as Inspector Barnaby, no doubt.
It is only available on DVD.
The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.
