My partner, Nancy, and I just watched S1 of Emily in Paris. It’s a light hearted account of a young American woman assigned to a newly acquired PR agency in Paris. It’s got a little bit of a Sex in the City vibe. Ten episodes of <30 minutes each. Good couple’s entertainment.

Wife and I absolutely loved "Longmire" and we don't agree on much. Good Aussie actor Robert Taylor is excellent as are all the supports.
We are also really enjoying "Blacklist" - James Spader is a cracker in the lead role.
The early series of "Homeland" were riveting and even the later ones without Damien Lewis are watchable.
I am enjoying "Shooter" and "Punisher" which have plenty of action and are better written/scripted and put together than I was expecting.
I have been wading my way through "Designated Survivor" which I find cheesy and jingoistic. The supporting characters make it watchable for me.

Blacklist is good fun - Spader always good to watch imo, and plays a kind of 'Hannibal Lecter Lite' in this role

As I previous mentioned, Hannibal is outstandingly good as long as you don't mind the gore. Mads Mikkelsen is brilliant in this - almost worth watching for his ever-changing suits alone

Bit of trivia - Longmire star Robert Taylor played one one of the Agents in the original Matrix movie along with fellow Aussie Paul Goddard, and Hugo Weaving.

Barbarians on Netflix. It's the German equivalent to Vikings.
Rather enjoying it.

I'm enjoying "Hell on Wheels." Set in the mid 1800's - life/death in the wild west building the railroad.

Peeky Blinders & Blacklist are both long running, tenured shows and both keep your attention the entire time.

Just finished season 1 of Evil on Netflix and season one of Zero Zero Zero on Amazon. I really liked them both.

I think I'm in the minority because though I enjoyed Queen's Gambit, I really didn't think there was all that much substance to it, and definitely not one of Netflix's best shows, rather mediocre ...My opinion of course. I do however crave to play more chess though.

Those that liked Queen's Gambit, check out Pawn Sacrifice. Tobey Maguire as Bobby Fischer and Liev Schreiber as Spassky

Queen's Gambit and Hillbilly Elegy are the most recent Netflix shows and movies I watched. Both were terrific.

Adrift was a pretty good movie. If you have 4K you’ll really enjoy it.

Finally watched Roma yesterday on Netflix. I know I am late on this, and it won an Oscar, but I still didn’t expect it to be as great as it is.

About a well-off family and focused on their servant, it’s set in Mexico City during 1970 and 1971, with lots of wild stuff going on. It’s heartbreaking, funny, tense, as stylish as a Tarkovsky or Bergman film with similar pacing, and the script is tight. Easily the best new movie I’ve seen in a couple of years.

I also enjoyed the two Denis Villeneuve movies I’ve seen on Netflix, Arrival and Sicario. Brilliant.

I'll preface this with saying I had 0 interest in MMA fighting prior to watching this show, and still have 0 interest in MMA fighting but found the show to be very entertaining...

"Kingdom"

Maybe it's because I've watched up everything else on Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO, and Apple TV+...
