Witcher very good waiting for the new series.
The Serpent was also excellent.
Mindhunter been mentioned previously but great incite into criminal profiling.

Just finished The Queens Gambit for the second time, an extraordinary work of art imo, with top notch acting and styling so cool it'll leave you breathless.

This is like a classic album that you listen to time and again and find something new each time. You have favourite bits like favourite tracks and they change from play to play ...Magnificent settings worthy of a work of art, a sixties laced soundtrack and a lead that you'll never want to stop watching.. Like an album I'll play a single set piece if I don't have time for more

They nail the ending as well which maybe one in a thousand shows do..

Coyote is an American series about an ex-border control agent who crosses paths with a Mexican cartel.

Standard fare, but I though the acting from the guy playing the lead character is really natural and enjoyable.

Just one six part series, so far, so worth a watch imo.

Try Back to Life if you want a dark comedy...Daisy Haggard has always been a favourite and she co-wrote this story of a murderer coming home after doing her time and moving back in with her extremely dysfunctional parents

Just watched the 9th (of 10) episode of the first series of Ozark on Netflix.

Must admit after a not convinced start it has really grown on me as the series has gone on.

Cobra Kai series.

Sequel to the very successful Karate Kid films from the 80s.

Originally shown on YouTube but now acquired by Netflix.

Really really good if you liked the films.

I've watched all 3 seasons of Ozark, MTC, it's very good.

Think they are making a fourth season soon.

Based on a true story,about a man who drugged, robbed and murdered back packers in the 70's, well acted and well worth a watch and some great songs from the 70's to boot.
The Serpent was excellent.
I binge watched 4 episodes on one evening.

Some parts of it are in every episode.

My wife, hates sub titles but they didn't bother her, so don't think it's a problem, unless she can't stand any at all.
