Watching Apocalypse The Second World War. It's a Smithsonian Channel documentary of six shows using original footage to chronicle WWII. Excellent show that gives you a real view of the war.

Finished Season Two of Marco Polo. Liked it a lot. Better than Season 1, in my opinion.
Benedict Wong is still killing it as Kublai Khan.

Also have been watching Au Service de la France (A Very Secret Service).
A Netflix original sitcom based in the French Secret Service in the 60's.
Sort of like a cross between Get Smart, Mad Men and The Pink Panther.

C'est tres drole.

Borgen. Danish TV serial. Political drama. Spoken in Danish with English subtitles. I find it riveting. Full of attractive people and of course that beautiful Danish language.

DH is glued to Jessica Jones right now. "Fallen" superhero trying to get her life together and chase down a really bad dude while doing mildly superhero-ish things in NYC.
Definitely jumps right into some, ahem, mature content. Fair warning.

I've heard mixed reviews about it. I'll have to check it out. I trust Don better than DD as far as TV goes.

Watched the first episode of "The Night Of". Seemed pretty decent crime drama. Starts out with a student attending what appeared to be a real life physics lecture (mentioned Stokes Theorem). The lecturer actually rapped out equations on the board like real life college profs. Seemed to be a good effort at showing realism blended into entertainment.

Anyway, might be a promising series. It was suggested to us by our son who is 32. Generally we have different tastes then him. Could be he is maturing or we are going downhill or meeting in the middle?

Jessica Jones is not for everyone. You'll find out during the first episode if it it your cup of tea.

It is pretty saucy. And I agree that you will know during the first episode if it is to your liking.

And I will have to tell DH that you trust his tv selections. He is famous for selecting (to me) awful movies!

Just finished watching all 8 episodes of 11.22.63 based on Stephen King's book. I didn't read the book so I'm not sure how close it follows but the DVD series was pretty good, if you like science fiction time travel scenarios.

The book was easily one of King's best in well over a decade. Glad to hear the mini-series holds up on its own. I don't have Hulu, so not sure when/if I'll see it.

Even though this thread started as Netflix, I notice postings about shows from others platforms.

It really helps if the poster includes where they streamed it from. I have Netflix and Prime so those are the only shows I would look for.

I agree (and I'm sure I've done it myself). I look on Netflix for shows posted here and get confused when I can't find them (why yes I do get easily confused).

There actually is a separate thread for Amazon Prime suggestions: Amazon Prime movie suggestions

that's true but it doesn't seem to matter, everything is in the same thread. Please just put the streaming platform when you endorse a show.

It's available on NetFlix DVD's now. Two disks with four episodes on each. That's how I watched it.

There is a thread for Amazon Prime Movies.
It is worth watching 🙌
