Above link has new and leaving titles for September 2016. That's a lot of binging.

Genius on Hold - documentary about the inventor of many popular telephone features, such as conference calling, and his invention rights battles with the Bell System. Contains a fair bit of corporate bashing, for example it tells only the inventor's side of the story, but about 1/3rd in the narrative takes off via an unexpected and fascinating twist. Left me curious to learn more.

Just watched "The Reader" on Amazon Prime (based on the book "Der Vorleser"). Stars Kate Winslett & Ralph Fiennes. I'd definitely recommend it. It has some weighty issues and personal struggles in it, and is set in a very interesting time and place.

If one is interested in crime / detection shows, many of the European series are very good. Each series is about 6-9 episodes although "The Fall" is longer.

I think these are Netflix originals.
Marcella - UK
The Fall - Northern Ireland?
Case - Iceland
Paranoia - UK and Germany
Dicte - Denmark


I don't think this one is a Netflix original

Witnesses - France

I'm currently watching 'The Fall', and it's good. But, I can't help thinking that it's a thinly veiled redo of 'Prime Suspect'. And, for me, it's difficult to outdo Helen Mirren.

Here are a few we liked from Netflix:

The Assets - about the catching of a mole within CIA (based on true story)
Detectorists - understated British humor
The IT Crowd - older show about some techies in a UK business environment
Glitch - in small Australian town people start emerging from graves
Doctor Foster - is the husband cheating on the doc or not?

Midnight Diner, Tokyo stories (I watched one so far, DW abstained)

I haven't seen Prime Suspect w Helen Mirren but a quick Google summary shows significant story similarities to "The Fall", like you said, Huston55.

Monarch of the Glen is good, but is leaving Netflix at the first of February (tomorrow).

Sad.

The Fall is awesome. Gruesome but awesome. Gillian Anderson is amazing.

We just started season 3. Season 1 and 2 terrific.

Been watching Netflix original Sense8 - Wow!

Feel like a spectator. Very mysterious at first. Slow reveal. Multicultural. Fascinating.

Have watched the first two of ten episodes of Santa Clarita Diet, another Netflix original series--lighthearted gruesome black comedy, Timothy Olyphant (swoon) carrying the show with Drew Barrymore. The kind of show that really doesn't need to run more than one season.

Episode 1 was more than I could handle!

If Olyphant was not in it I wouldn't watch it, but fortunately the second episode isn't quite as graphic so I'm hoping the shock shtick will continue to diminish. DH loves the gore so
he's fine with it.

Yeah, the graphic parts were pretty bad, but it was the stupidity that ultimately got to me and made me decide no más!

I can see how some might find it uproariously funny.

Stranger Things was good for those who like sci-fi ish stuff. It has some comedy relief in it also.


If you like super hero type shows for adults, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Nick Cage are good, in that order.


I watched one episode of Marco Polo and will go back to that later.

I never mind a little stupidity once in a while , and I don't think this is uproariously funny, just reporting on what we've seen on the service.

I burst into laughter from this show WAY more than I should...

Very good. Another couple I like on Amazon is The Beginning of Everything and The Man in High Castle. Just started the latter one but better than I thought it would be.
