Any Neflix recommendations?

Iím in London and we have just been told we are going into a lockdown asap. No guests allowrd in the home, no restaurants, no bars or pubs. Gutted and will most likely make the most of my Netflix membership at this point

Does anyone have any recommendations?

I like things like Mindhunter / Bad Billionaires of Indian etc but am totally open to anything

You might try a search for previous threads.
There have been several this year.

The Queen's Gambit (recently released) is probably the best Netflix-produced series I've seen.

I sympathize, having been through two lockdowns this year. Some recommendations - I could add a lot more, but these are a few highlights...

Hannibal (with Mads Mikkelsen)
Ozark
Homeland
The Crown
Bodyguard (2018)
The Foreigner (2017 movie)
The Siege of Jadotville (2016 movie)
The Last Full Measure (2019 movie)

For comedy, I enjoyed Schitt's Creek

Ozark, we watched it not knowing anything about it or hearing any reviews. Man we’re we pleasantly surprised. Well written and acted and it’s actually a fun ride watching.

Started The Haunting of Bly Manor last night (seems appropriate for a full moon Halloween) Seems like it will be good.

Was wondering about that one, will check it out

To the OP, if you haven't seen Ozark you need to, also Drive to Survive, Apex and Peaky Blinders are great

Criminal UK. Intense, almost real-time criminal interrogations with great twists. Using the same format and set, but with different plots that reflect each country's current concerns, are Criminal Spain, Criminal France, and Criminal Germany. Brilliant series.

Enjoying 'Kingdom' at the moment... Not sure if it's on the format for the UK however.

Just finished Longmire on Netflix and it was quite good. Likely not for everybody but if a modern tale of a Dakota sheriff and his crew doing battle with all kinds of bad folk and throw in the Cheyanne Indian tribe with both bad and good members itís a fun ride. Six seasons

Queen's Gambit by far the best Netflix show this year. It's amazing how they made a game like chess so glamorous and exciting!
