Stranger things is great (obviously) and I’m also about halfway through season 1 of narcos. Netflix rules. Hopefully it will still exist in its current form soon.
Peaky Blinders season 4 just dropped (on Netflix). For those who haven't seen this show, watch it!
2.5 episodes into Godless (Netflix). It's great, so far, and I'm not a big westerns guy. Script, cast, cinematography, scenery, this show has it all.
What is this Godless about? Anything like Hell On Wheels? Watched that series and enjoyed it. Last I looked there were some rumblings of a continuation or offshoot of that series.
Godless is not much like HoW other than the general Western setting, but I think if you liked HoW you'll like this.
The gist of it is (hopefully no spoilers)--there's a silver mining town in New Mexico where the majority of the men are killed in a mining accident, leaving just the women and a very small handful of men. Meanwhile, there's a gang on a vendetta ride going through the area, and eventually the two converge.
I binged the whole thing in a weekend--it was pretty well done, great actors (Jeff Daniels as a villain was terrific, Sam Waterston as a crusty old sheriff was also great, Denise from The Walking Dead, and Maryy Crawley from Downton Abbey), and good production values.
The narrative jumps across locations and time period, so things can be a little tough to keep up with for a while, but once everything starts to move toward a climax it's really, really good TV.
8/10 from me.
Almost for sure it's a one off. 7 ~1 hour episodes.
I started Peaky Blinders. I like it, but probably not something I'm going to binge.
Having said that, I did binge Ozark a few weeks ago. Very well written and it's a blast seeing Jason Bateman break bad. I can't remember if I've mentioned GLOW in the past, but that's also a lot of fun and Marc Maron was made for his role. I think it's getting another season.
It will be interesting to see what Amazon's Jack Ryan series looks like. I've got a feeling Ryan will be far deeper in the action than Clancy ever envisioned.
Slippin' Jimmy, great stuff!
Am 20 minutes into Sneaky Pete S02 and, hot damn, I forgot about how good S01 was.
it starts off good and gets much better. Enjoy the ride.
