    The horror movie thread got me thinking.

    Once you're rewatched all the reruns of all your favourite shows, what now?

    Why not watch something different? I've gotten into Korean TV, and ... is it a guilty pleasure? You decide. Right now I'm watching...

    After that it's going to be ...

    What's your Netflix guilty pleasure?

    Thanks for the tip, I got nothing. I take it you've seen Kim's Convenience? That was actually good.

    Kim's Convenience was fun. Schitt's Creek too. If you have never seen it before, Friday Night Lights is probably the best family drama ever on network TV. You don't have to enjoy football to love the show.

    For something quite dark and "prestige", Mare of Easttown is very good so far.

    I don't know about guilty pleasure I sure do wish they'd pick up the pace on Better Call Saul. Or have they already abandoned that one, too?

    A 4th installment of the Fargo series would be a joy, too. So long as it's better than the 3rd one.

    But maybe the more obscure show that I'm waiting for a next season of is Monkey. I've read translations of the old Chinese fables and just really love that stuff.

    I'm all caught-up on Canadian TV: Kim's Convenience. Schitt's Creek. Corner Gas. Little Mosque on the Prairie.

    It's not a guilty pleasure because I feel no guilt enjoying it, but I love Nailed It, including all of the international versions from Mexico, France, Spain and Germany.

    Nailed It is a favorite of mine/my wife as well. The Great Canadian Baking show is another good one; I tend to actually know where the contestants are from!

    My wife loves the British one and sometimes I join her in watching it. It's baking but not as we know it. "Pie" day was odd. Those are pies?!

    Are there subtitles or do you speak Korean?

    No guilt - but Unbelievable was great (think that was Netflix). Fleabag is pretty great too. Narco, season one, remarkable story with news footage spliced in.

    Thanks for more tips. I can only think of time on Netflix as looking for what else is on.

    Schitts Creek, watched all those, sorry it has now bitten the dust, it was hilarious. Dark was great until the final season, the pffftt!
    I'm on BBC iPlayer now binge watching Line of duty, on series 3, and it looks to be another cracker.

    Subtitles. Some of the Korean TV shows I've watched have options for dubbed English (My Mister, Mister Sunshine), but I realized I get more out of it with English subtitles and spoken Korean.

    Corner Gas was unexpectedly great; was sad to reach the last episode. Not sure what Kim's Convenience is, have to check it out.

    I found Cobra Kai pretty entertaining, for those who remember the old Karate Kid movie. Campy, but it kind of draws you in.
    More modern stuff: Altered Carbon is excellent. Just started looking at The Irregulars, not sure yet. Hoping to get back to Longmire soon; I read the book series that it's based on, which is great.

    You’ll have to be patient. Season 6 is scheduled to air in 2022 which means 5 won’t get on NF till then.

    Just finished Peaky Blinders and it was amazing. Nothing to be guilty about. My guilty pleasure is Hana, on Prime.
