    I see a lot of Longmire praise. I thought it was starting to get redundant & quit watching it. I told my mom she would like it if she had NF. They like the Murder She Wrotes & whatnots.

    Mystery Science Theater 3000, the re-boot. Pretty dang funny! I was skeptical being a fan of the original series, but they're doing a good job.

    Well after finishing the rather engrossing but disturbing “Making a Murderer” I put on “American Vandal” and went to get a drink. Came back in a few minutes later and my wife said “Thank you!” and when I couldn’t figure out why she said “For this comedy”.

    It’s a good one!

    Most series are like that to a degree. How many times can you reinvent a plot or story line?

    I read an article recently that discussed how the explosion of new streaming services is going to dilute Netflix's lineup. Disney and HBO are both launching streaming services, and so their shows will be pulled from Netflix. Amazon Prime is taking a lot of viewers away from Netflix. The article predicted that it'll be common to subscribe to a number of services instead of just having one location.

    It seems that streaming is going to become somewhat like current cable, with consumers having to pay for multiple "channels" to get the shows they want. It's rather disappointing.

    Lots of good suggestions above, but now here’s one from a different angle:

    Cuatro Estaciones en La Habana (Four Seasons in Havana), a police procedural shot in Havana (with a Colombian lead and production company). In Spanish, with subtitles if you need them. Superb - and I have seen may of the others listed above but I loved this. Very well done; I cannot recommend it highly enough.

    We recently started watching Travelers on Netflix. Quite an interesting concept of time travelers.

    Netflix is a future bankruptcy case. It is burning through $15MM a day, which translates to almost $4B a year (counting workdays only). It has spent money with reckless abandon to accumulate content and try to attain market share. But competition from other outlets, failures in other areas of technology that make investors wary, a volatile and perhaps declining trio of stock market indices, and a failure to get on a clear path to breaking even and generating positive cashflow will all likely work together to un-do Netflix.

    Maybe the UK posters can explain something for me here.

    Netflix has given us decent access to a number of British sit-coms. Some of them I've really liked. IT Crowd, Father Ted, Black Books, Spaced, and even a little of Faulty Towers.

    But they all seem to abruptly end, just disappear, poof. I think the IT Crowd managed to circle back around and do a final episode (sorta like Seinfeld's finale) but otherwise they are just gone in a flash. What's up with that?

    Often more successful American sit-coms have some lead time before they are cancelled and they use that time to put together a goodbye episode of sorts. But the UK stuff just seems to get abruptly unplugged mid sentence.

    Am I wrong there? I really know nothing about British TV.
