Just looking for some recommendations to get us through the next month.

I'll start by recommending:
Brave New World - series
Ratched - series
Rebecca - film

We’ve been watching the Bridge. We’ve finished Series 2, so 3 and 4 to go. It’s excellent, it was recommended on here - I’d just finished watching the Fall and posted on here for similar ideas. I’d also highly recommend The Fall.

Also, Harlots, a bit trashy but an easy watch. Series on iPlayer.

The series This is Us has just released series 5 all can be found on Prime.

The Queen's Gambit is excellent and can be found on Netflix.

To the lake
Both are on Netflix

Has anyone watched American Gods? Think it’s a bit old but just noticed DP has added it to our watchlist.

That said, we didn’t get round to watching Game of Thrones until the last lockdown. Watched the whole thing in 6 weeks, I was bereft when we finished it.

So excited about This Is Us! Also try Ozark, Emily In Paris, Bordertown, Mindhunter...

Mind Hunter is excellent. Is series 3 coming soon?

I’ll have a flick through Netflix tonight and add some of these on. Can’t say that I’ve got much else to look forward to over the next month, other than binge watching and eating nice food wink

Mad Men on Amazon prime smile

Normal People (BBC Iplayer) it's a bit marmite. 12 half an hour episodes, close to Sally Rooney's book. I enjoyed it but it's a bit of a roller coaster and much shouting at the screen.

Love Life (BBC Iplayer) Rom Com starring Anna Kendrick, 10 episodes. Entertaining and not too high brow.

Motherland - series 1 on Netflix and most of series 2 on iPlayer

Loved Emily in Paris! Such wonderful escapism. Call my Agent is v good if you don't mind subtitles.

If you have Sky Arts, there are lots of interesting documentaries about the old school Hollywood movie stars, Audrey Hepburn, Rock Hudson etc.

Just coming back to this, thank you for all your suggestions.

If anyone likes violent anime hmm then blood of Zeus on Netflix was quite good. I wouldn't normally watch that kind of thing though.

OrangeBananaFish Sat 07-Nov-20 20:31:47

Another This is Us suggestion. Just because that was my lockdown viewing earlier in the year.

Seaside hotel. Channel 4... brilliant!!!

We are about half way through Cursed and enjoying it. Desperately searching for another GoT, don't think Cursed is it but it's good in its own way.
