Hi all

Thought I would start a new thread as the other is a bit long.

I have started up a 'to watch' list from the thread.

Previous thread

I am currently watching Jane the Virgin and The Paradise (about a hotel but similar to downton abbey in some ways).

Keep chatting

Ali

I need to catch up on Jane The Virgin. I recently binge watched Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and need to find something similarly hilarious.

Have started watching Getting On which had me chuckling.

Ok, people probably missed my recommendation for The OA, it was really good, the ending missed a bit, and you need to suspend dis-belief. but it truely is interesting way the story is told.

Also The Get Down, just finished Season 1 part 2. It's getting slammed a bit, but really it was quite entertaining.

From the other thread,if you enjoy reading sci-fi,read the Expanse books.
They are good.
It will help a lot with what is happening.

Nothing at the moment.  The last thing I watched on it was Fuller House Season 2, but that was a couple of months ago.  I haven't found anything else that grabs my attention yet.

Just started watching iron fist and it is terrible. I feel like I am missing something. Like, I feel like it's supposed to be corny like superman or something, but it's not, I think it's trying to be serious like daredevil but it's utterly failing. The acting isn't good which doesn't help.

We are seriously considering getting rid of our Netflix subscription - there is pretty much nothing worth the cost. We have forced ourselves to watch a few things (eg. The Expanse) but tbh it's only because we've already paid the subscription. It's actually a desert of boring or pointless crap imho. We troll endlessly through the listings and it's not appealing. My understanding is that US Netflix is much better but you need to start doing dodgy VPN stuff which is borderline illegal to get access to it. I am weirdly confused by the fact that apparently Netflix has reconfigured our whole social structure and caused the encroaching death of the free to air tv and cinema industries because it just doesn't seem worth it unless you have really low standards. I can only think that the american version is just leagues better than what we get here.

The American version is sooooo much better than the Australian one. We had a few glorious months with getflix where we had access to the American library, unfortunately now they've clamped down on that and our getflix doesn't work anymore. I am also considering getting rid of my subscription as the content is pretty poor.

im in the same boat. I stuffed my back a few weeks ago at work and I am sitting at home unable to do anything too strenuous and I can't find anything entertaining on Netflix at all. I couldn't even watch all of 13 reasons why. It was sh*te.

I'm finding Stan is good now that I'm sick of Netflix. It's got good stuff for the kids too.

But soon I'll run out of things to watch on Stan I'm sure.

If you post a list of things you have liked, people can make suggestions.

I think sometimes older series you missed can be good. I found out they have Rush the crime drama recently. Dh loved it but I never got into it.

I've run out of good stuff on Stan and Netflix unless there's a new release. But, I keep them for the new releases and the things the kids watch eleventy billion times. For us, they're cheap enough (stan account is currently overdue because there's nothing worth watching).

By the time I go through ABC and SBS for replays I end up finding something worthwhile on Netflix  (running docos I wouldn't have watched 2 months ago at the moment!)

And if there's really, really nothing to watch then it's nice to do something else.
