I know the BBC Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch has been mentioned before, but we're still slowly going through the episodes. They are so crazy fantastic - we take them in small doses. Then we will probably have to watch them all over again.

Your last recommendation of River was so good (DH loved it) that we started in on Man in the High Castle yesterday via Amazon Prime. Weird, but good.

I think I need to be subscribed to your viewing history, lol, so I don't miss anything good!

I'll have to put those on my list. We just started Peaky Blinders and I watched and recommend Luther.

I really enjoyed Peaky Blinders as well and I remember watching the 1st season or 2 of Luther but haven't seen any more. I'll need to start on that again, and will have to watch the ones I've already seen as I've forgotten them already.

Broadchurch season 2 now available on Netflix!

We just started watching Jessica Jones on Netflix, another series with David Tennant, although he hasn't (quite) shown up yet, and it's very good.

I added it to my watchlist this week on advice of my son although I haven't started watching it yet.

Yippee!! Got the email about Broadchurch from Netfix this morning. I think I'll watch season one again just to remind myself of all the players and motivations.

Supposed to rain here tomorrow--sounds like a binge watching day...

I just finished the whole series. OMG! What a story and what an ending!

I had a hard time getting into it at first but the last two or three episodes where spine tingling! I actually had goosebumps for the last 10 minutes as the whole thing came together.

The story is very dark and depressing, but...wow! for me, it was worth the effort.

I've been watching it with my son, and last night we watched episodes 7 and 8. He works weekends, 3x12 hr night shifts starting tonight (Friday), so I wouldn't normally expect to see him today but he said to me there is no way he can hang on 'til Monday to see the last 2 episodes so he is coming around at 3 (45 minutes from now) to watch the last episodes before he goes to work.

I'll be interested to hear if you find the last episode as amazing as I did.

I'll let you know. He told me last night that it is the best series he's seen since Game of Thrones, and that is high praise coming from him. (I also enjoy Game of Thrones).

Stick with it, I think you'll find it worth it.

I started it for the story but stayed with it for the characters (unusual for me). ALL the characters.

I too found the first few slow going but for some reason it just got better and better. YMMV, but I found the last 4-5 episodes well worth the pain of the earlier ones.

I'm still coming off the high of the ending 4 hours ago....so I might still be overly impressed, but.....the last 60 minutes truly blew my mind.

I agree on the "Best Offer". It started out a little slow for me, but what a great twist at the ending. It was one of those movies you want to watch a second time, now that you understand what was really going on.

Phillip K. Dick is a synonym for dark and depressing. Great writer, though.
