Dark: German TV show. Have watched ep1, very good with bucket loads of potential
Started to watch the first episode but found the Englishes dubbing very off putting. It was better in German with English subtitles.

Finished it; enjoyed it.  Hated the dubbing.

La Mante, French show on Netflix, very good

Finished this too - enjoyed it as well, though a bit derivative.  Have finished 'The Frozen Dead' too - a bit too Hannibal Lecter for my liking, though it wasn't bad.  Read the book too, so maybe enjoyment was tempered by knowing the plot.  Worth a look, as it's short; six episodes. 

Watched 'big little lies' over the weekend too.  Was impressed.

Stumbled across Manhunt: Unabomber last night and ended up watching 4 episodes.

Seems very good so far - based on how FBI profiler helped track down the unabomber - serial killer in the states from late 70s to early 90s.

Watched the whole series and thought it was excellent

Watched 6 episodes of this over the weekend. really good show.

Agree with you on the dubbing.
If you watched it on Netflix you can change the language to the native language and then turn on English subtitles.

Yeah, I found that out too late, sadly.

Finished Unabomber last week myself, enjoyed it.  Possibility of a second season.

Well impressed with unabomber too.. really enjoy 'biographical' type dramas .. any other recommendations?  .. I've seen mindhunter, enjoyed it too.
I'm trying to decide on a really meaningful message..

Loved both Unabomber and Mindhunter.

So far i am enjoying Godless. It's a bit of a slow burner but i have a soft spot for a western. Jeff Daniels is excellent as the villain. A real nasty bastid.
