Ozark season 4 is coming Next week on Netflix. Highly recommend anyone who hasn't watched to get involved from the start. Just finished Dopesick on star. But jumpy back and forth for me but what a story of Big Pharm and the drug Oxycontin. You will understand Americas suspicion of Big pharma is not unfounded after watching this.

Didn't realise Ozark is out next week, another great show.

Dark Waters another film with Mark Ruffalo shining a light on on the rotten nature of big pharma.

Iím sure itís been mentioned here before, but Drive to Survive is a great watch on Netflix.  Looking forward to the F1 season after years ignoring it. Probably glad I did with Hamilton cleaning up.

What's The Last Kingdom like on Netflix? Thinking of diving in to that, seems to have got good reviews.

Loved it, its not Vikings but takes a different view from the same period of Vikings

Is the Witcher worth a go?

I liked it - the 1st series takes a bit of concentration with different timelines involved. Magic, wars and monsters would summarise it. Wife couldn't into it at all.

I liked it too, but as mentioned with those type of medieval/fantasy shows, hard to keep up with the different tribes/races as well as the names.

Agree with yes. I couldnít get enough of Vikings a few years back and this definitely helped to fill a big void when I was waiting in a new season. Definitely worth a watch.

Another show I watched recently was Outer Banks, doubt it has won any awards and although Iím not to hard to please I really enjoyed it.

On the same note Iím currently watching the latest season of Cobra KaiÖcan not get enough of that show!

Think I got to the early parts of season 3, got distracted by something else, and never got back to it.

I thought Ozark was decent, but not great. Something enjoyable enough to watch, but not exactly riveting tv.

It just never grabbed me like, say, the first couple of Fargo seasons, or The Sopranos, or Breaking Bad or stretches of the early seasons of The Walking Dead, where I couldn't wait for the next episode.

Basically not a show I would binge watch with all the choices we have these days.

I see there is a Viking film coming out, Northman, trailers (as you'd expect) look good

Itís about DuPont who are not a pharma company.

Watching junior bake off with my daughter and really enjoying it however it's basically a bunch of 9 yr olds and then one 13 yr old who is winning everything. How the feck is that fair. 3/4 yrs is a massive difference at that age.

Now the documentaries are about The Rolling Stones on BBC4, altogether brilliant.   I never knew there was such violence directed against police and general total mayhem at their gigs all around Europe, years  before Altamont.
