A recommendation for a single episode of Marc Maron, called The Node, especially for those with poor support from their cable companies.

http://m.imdb.com/title/tt4419662/

On Netflix.

Gone Girl is now available on Netflix Canada. It's a creepy thriller involving a psychopath. No spoilers! If you liked the book, you will enjoy it. Rosamund Pilcher and Ben Affleck star.

Two very different types of films. Did I discover these or were they already suggested here? We watch the first and then the second to relax before bed:

1) The Assets about the search for a mole in the CIA starting in the 1980's. Eventually they got Ames, link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldrich_Ames. This is the first season.

2) Detectorists some buddies are in a group that searches English fields for lost artifacts. Droll humor and we like it a lot.

DH loved the Detectorists, I'd heard about it on this thread.
Too slow for me, honestly.

Ref: Making of a Murderer. Keep watching, it is riveting! We finished it pretty quickly and I've been reading a lot about the buzz it has generated nationwide. Amazing story, and very well researched and presented.

By coincidence DD recommended this to me today via email so I added it to my list.

Season 2 and 3 of The Following showed up on Netflix.

The Following - Netflix US - instantwatcher

There are many bad people in this series, and that include most of the "good" guys.

Just finished the "Narcos" series. Not usually my thing but this was really well done. The Brazilian actor playing Pablo Escobar just nails it.. great acting. Some of the others are a little shaky at times (especially the main DEA agent).
Cinematography is great and so are the production values.

You can tell Netflix is starting to drop serious coin into their original content when you see series like this or their "Marco Polo"

Just watched "Wild Card" starring Jason Statham. A re-make of "Heat" that starred Burt Reynolds.

It followed the original movie pretty close (somewhat inflation adjusted ) but wasn't as good, IMO.

If we had one Statham in each state we could close down all government and breathe free air!

I'm gonna tee that up for Saturday night.

Yes, we are half way through. I'm not sure how they produced this series. Seems so realistic, but how could they have put all this together in real time? They couldn't have known the outcome? Or did they go back after the fact and recreate some of it?

They started out making a documentary about Steven Avery when he was released from his wrongful incarceration. The idea was to follow the civil case, etc... and so they just kept filming as stuff happened.

So the stuff from the 80's and 90's is look back based on historical footage. The stuff from 2004 and newer was filmed by the documentarians.

This documentary has to be a black eye to anyone associated with the justice dept. in both the state of Wisc. and the federal level. I certainly hope that both Steven and Brendon receive new trials.

Without giving any spoilers to anyone wanting to watch this--it is so well done but-- but --but--
It is hard to recommend watching this when I have to use these words about how I feel after watching it:

Disgusted
Infuriated
Frustrated.

At long last is there anyone in the state of Wisconsin who will call out the really horrible people who made this happen?! Shameful.
