Netflix Recommendations

It's a few years old but I just got done with Bodyguard.   Enjoyed it enough.   Felt like they kind of hurried the ending and there were some close ends that didn't really make sense but it was only 6 episodes so not a huge time investment.

I stumbled upon Superbros last night.  Australian comedy series.  It's wacky, demented, foul and fresh.  Episode 2 had me legit lol.

20 min episodes, so it's not a huge time investment.  

Sorry, the correct title is just: Superbro

(not plural).  Best laughs I've have from a TV show in a long time.  Highly recommend.  Only complaint is that there are only 12 episodes total.  For some reason the Netflix UI is screwy and it shows you season 2 by default and then season 1.  It doesn't really matter though as each show is it's own thing (no overarching story between shows).  The last show (end of season 1) with zombies was probably the weakest of the catalogue IMO.

Treason. A concise 5 episodes. Never boring. Never lags. Not a happy ending but it is wrapped up favorably - can't think of a better word but I've been up for forever.

I almost bailed after the 1st episode but I'm glad I stuck with it.   There were a few plot issues I had with the whole thing (major one was why did Angelis bring Adam in so deep into MI6 and name him as temporary head if there were the double agent issues) but overall, I was entertained.

I Used To Be Famous was worth the watch. 

on my list.  Just watched Sing Street last night (last day on Netflix is January 31) and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Nice coming of age, teen angst show set in Ireland about a guy and his friend's starting a band.

“Physical:100”.  It’s a Korean athletic competition with different types of athletes competing in different physical challenges.  The kicker is to turn on English dubbing.  It is sublimely hilarious.  

I only watched one episode, but it is entertaining enough to see what happens.  The first 30+ minutes was just contestants walking into the room and meeting each other, so that could have been cut down.  The Squid Game aspect of it is gimmicky but I don't blame them after how popular that show was.

If the editing of the challenges remains the same with the double cuts, I will probably not make it through episode 2.  That shit is so fucking lame and annoying.

I've never heard people talk about each others' physique so much, that was pretty weird.

I watched the second episode and the editing does not get better.  But the dubbing still cracks me up with one or two people trying to do different voices for the different competitors.

It’s a couple years old but I just watched “ghosts of Sugar Land”. 20 minute documentary about a young guy from Sugar Land that allegedly went to Syria and joined ISIS after converting to Islam in Texas. The interviews are with his close friend group, who are split on if he really was radicalized or if he was an FBI plant the entire time. Really well done.

Y'all can skip You People. If you've seen the trailer you've pretty much seen the movie, which consists mainly of humans acting in ways that no human would act. 

"Here black person, let's sit down and have food and discuss the differences between black people and white people. This will surely lead to high comedy."

Fun watching Eddie Murphy though. Glad he's having a renaissance.

Wales is "about to have its Netflix moment." 'Catch the Lightning' to be released on Netflix in 6 hour-long episodes in March.

Quote

There is a pleasingly twisty plot, a ragtag mob of great characters and some wonderful landscapes, but the star of a heist series nabbed by Netflix is arguably Cymraeg – the Welsh language.

In a landmark moment for the creative industry in Wales, the thriller Dal y Mellt (Catch the Lightning) has become the first Welsh language-only show to be bought by the streaming service.

Welsh language campaigners are delighted; tourism officials hope fans of the show will head to Wales to visit some of the places featured; arts bosses hope it will pave the way for many more Welsh-language dramas.

“It feels like a real moment,” said Siân Doyle, the chief executive of the Welsh-language channel S4C, which commissioned the drama. “It shows we can stand on the world stage. In Dal y Mellt I think the language adds to the personality of the drama. The landscape is a character but I think the language is too.”

Requiem on Netflix is a great detective show based in Wales but it's in English. Hidden, an absolutely fantastic detective show also filmed in Wales, is streaming on Britbox but is mostly English language, not Welsh, at least in the version shown in the US. The new Welsh heist series is apparently going after the Nordic Noir crowd.
