Shoehorning this into this thread which I was forwarded last night. Howling with laughter:

 

 

Last weeks 8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown featured the 2nd edition of this. Almost as glorious as the first

I watched a couple of German shows on Netflix, Perfume and Dark.

Perfume is all style over substance, being an edgy little shit for the sake of it. There's some great ideas in there but they're never fully realised, and they could have gone so much deeper with the whole perfume idea.

Dark is bloody awesome but I'd rather not give too much away about it, it's one of the best science fiction thrillers I've seen. It even manages to do 80's nostalgia in a way that doesn't feel like you're being beaten over the head with a boombox.

Just finished the 2nd season of The Punisher.. My life is over now. 

Just started this and am not disappointed. Got a Banshee feel to it.

I've also been enjoying Sex Education as others on here have mentioned. Binged through several episodes when I was off sick. Eric is basically Skeeter from the cartoon Doug.

Has anybody had a watch of that Russian Doll thing on Netflix? It looks interesting. Might give it a look when I've got this series of The Good Place finished.

It's alright, absolutely nothing spectacular at all. I was exceptionally put off by the curly haired lass from American Pie doing her best attempt at an impression of Joan Rivers throughout. And they clearly spent half the budget on cigarettes. Premise is decent, but is rushed to a conclusion.

Natasha Lyonne is a very good actor and she's extremely watchable in this, but it makes the error of going too 'oh look she's so flawed!!! she smokes and says fuck!!' But yeah it has some very good moments in it.

I’m torn on this. I wanted to turn it off after about 2 minutes. Everything was irritating. Lyonne is good when she’s actually acting, and not when she’s channeling, as TeedyKay rightly points out a cross between Joan Rivers and the hammiest “Ooooooh!!!!! I’m focking walkin here!!!!” New Yoiker

Having said that, there’s enough here to see me through to the end. Not exactly a huge series is it. And I like her friends.

Remember that film Hanna? Well there's a TV adaptation on Amazon, they've uploaded just one episode as a sneak peek, the rest is out in March.
