Watched The Railway Man on DVD last night and liked it:

Decades after his brutal captivity under the Japanese during World War II, Eric Lomax still has nightmares about the ordeal. But when he unexpectedly meets and falls for Patti, a bizarre coincidence brings his past back into focus.

Not recommending, but a comment on Lilyhammer.
If they ever give an award for improbability, this could be a nominee. I watch it because of fascination with screenwriter's imagination.

for normal viewing... weird
in a good mood?... really funny

Just watched the first episode of Black Mirror. Quite a bizarre comment on social media. Just remember you have been warned!

+1. IMO very funny however my tastes lean towards the weird.

We've been watching Happy Valley. If a title ever misrepresented a series, this is it. It's a really gritty British crime drama on Netflix with 6 episodes. The actors are fabulous. It's about a kidnapping and a policewoman who works the case. In some ways, I'm reminded of the feel of Prime Suspect, the old Helen Mirren show. It's very suspenseful and sometimes brutal. Has anyone else seen it? It's streaming on Netflix.

It is on my "to watch" list. Thanks for the good review - I'll move it up a few notches on the list!

We just watched the British TV mini-series (4 episodes) Lost in Austen on Hulu, where a lady from the modern age switches places and time periods with Ms. Elizabeth Bennett, and the plot of Pride and Prejudice gets all messed up. It's just hilarious, especially if you've watched version of Pride and Prejudice such as the 1996 BBC six-expisode version.

Worth checking to see if it's available on Netflix.

I saw it on the BBC earlier this year and thought it was excellent, set in the Calder Valley, West Yorkshire.

Thanks for the tip, I'll watch it again on Netflix.

ETA

If you liked the lead actress, Sarah Lancashire, then you'll probably enjoy Last Tango in Halifax (also West Yorkshire) on Netflix streaming

Unfortunately it isn't. But I will watch out for it. Thanks for the tip!

+1

When I first read the title I thought it was about some big city East coast person getting stranded in Texas. But, it is much better than that. Highly recommended.

If it is still streaming check out the Canadian series "Slings and Arrows" about a Shakespeare group whose old director comes back as ghost. Very funny.

I like the heavy duty intellectual stuff - The Adventures of Milo and Otis.

Strained my understanding of nature - but stroked my inner child.

heh heh heh - they were backwards. Our Pug is Milo not Otis.

I just finished watching that too. Loved the novelty of the concept, and I think the length of the series was just right as, for me at least, the novelty of the idea and it's execution was just beginning to lose some of it's sheen by the time the series ended.

Quite neat seeing Elizabeth partially integrated into the modern world with a laptop and mobile phone!
