    Default Netflix / Amazon Recommends

    New thread, hopefully ongoing to recommend or discuss Netflix / Amazon Prime series that have come up.

    Just chalked up all 10 episodes of Altered Carbon on Netflix. Basic premise, the soul/mind is transferable and the body a vessel in a Bladerunner type futuristic world. Personally thought it was great and is a recommendation for those who have not seen.

    Also recently finished Shannara which as a Terry Brooks fan was good, but not great, but watchable.

    Any other views, recommendations on an ongoing basis?

    "The Americans" - Cold war/80s story about a couple of KGB spies integrated into American society. Very very good IMO

    "Revenge" - good to start but get's a bit silly later on

    "The Wrong mans"
    - James Corden - I enjoyed it...
    Whatever...

    Didn't like Altered Carbon considering it had a vast budget, no where near as good The Expanse which I highly recommend. Best scifi show for a long time.

    American Gods with Lovejoy is ok, season 1 ended for season 2 to really do something good

    Mr Robot was good for season 1 and 2 - loses it a bit in S3

    Extant was quite good

    Goliath - enjoyed as well

    Just finished watching 'Mind Hunter' on Netflix, that is well worth a watch. Waiting for season 2 now.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
