    I found I had half an hour so I thought I would try the Good Place. Now on the second series and loving it even more than the first.

    Just on the 3rd episode now. It’s good. Can’t remember how true to life it is, but the focus on the FBI profiler is a good touch - a bit reminiscent of that other series about the guys who profiled serial killers in the 70s.

    Mindhunter. I genuinely thought that Manhunt: Unabomber was a spinoff for most of the time I was watching it.

    Part 2 bizarre wanking accident

    Le Casa de Papel...called Money Heist on Netflix.

    It's about a robbery on the Spanish Mint. I tried the version on Netflix but it's dubbed and I only managed one episode. Found a download of the Spanish version with subtitles though and it's really good. If you can handle American voice overs the Netflix version might be for you.

    Just saw a link to the top 150 films on Netflix on Tech Radar.

    Clicked on it and it's 156 separate pages. Fuck right off. Not even going to click once you cunts.

    Has anyone seen the Japanese series ‘Re:mind’? Looks intriguing, if seemly borrowing from the Saw films...

    I've just finished the Good Place, and I'm a bit sad that it ended.

    A Japanese version of Saw?

    I think not.

    Well it’s more like a mixture of a mystery dinner party at a mansion and Saw. Judging by the trailer, a group of young women wake up tied up and chained around a dinner table, and their mysterious host sets up challenges for them to solve/ answer or face the consequences.

    But...if you were going to take some people to see the film with that description...they may, after the fact, perhaps (we do not know) note your lapse in telling them that this comes from the country of Ichi the Killer and Audition.

    (and she who must not be mentioned...S**a*o)

    I'll stand by my initial reaction when you connect Saw and Japanese movies...it's like an insane dare, a voigt-kampf test.

    Just two-day binged this on your recommendation. Absolutely stunning, laugh out loud and tearjerking all at the same time. Really wonderful piece of telly. :thumbs:

    We enjoyed ‘Everything Sucks!’, a coming-of-age comedy drama based in the 1990s. Most of the main characters are kids but it’s not a kid’s show.

    I had the same problem.
    In the end I went out and bought the dvd.

    Seven Seconds.

    A New Jersey cop accidentally kills a black kid, tries to cover it up with the help of his squad and it snowballs out of control. A good exploration of racism in the US, excellent acting, a twist at the end, and it becomes a decent courtroom drama for the last 2 episodes.

    Alias Grace

    It's an adaptation of a Margaret Atwood novel, and so far is being pretty true to the original. You might like this Orang Utan .

    MA has a 'Supervising Producer' role. Not entirely sure what that means, but hoping it's something to do with creative control.

    Atwood also has a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo in the show.

    But yes, it's great. Sarah Gadon excels in a role that should by rights have been impossible to play.
