@endo I was pleasantly surprised with Squid Game, I agree it worth a watch.  A bit more downer towards the end than I thought it would be, but I think a happier ending would have been less genuine.  Also, left open for continuation, which I'd watch.

It’s great fun. Lightweight, charming and funny.

My wife and I both love "What We Do in the Shadows".  The writing is excellent, the whole cast is talented and appear to be enjoying themselves, and it's nice to watch a "low stakes" show.  I don't need to be cliff hangered or feel anxious during everything I watch  ;D

I do need that 95% of the time, but the other 5% WWDITS is my go-to.

@Joberwocky you said it totally on point! I hope we get many seasons to come...fingers crossed.

Another show I have really been enjoying is the Wu Tang: An American Saga...talk about being on the edge of your seat. The RZA is a genius.

I haven’t yet. It comes on a long list of things I want to watch but can’t get Hot Ingrid to. She’s pretty good to be fair, but some things she refuses to watch.

I’m so behind with all the good stuff out there right now. Sounds like Squid Game is a must. I’ve been bouncing between “What We Do in the Shadows”, finishing up season 2 of “Ted Lasso” and the Ken Burns Ali documentary. Muhammad Ali was such a complex man. The doc is absolutely fantastic and I’m only on episode 3.  As an aside, I listen to the podcast “SmartLess” pretty frequently (it’s hilarious) and the recent episode with Ken Burns was fantastic…highly recommend.

‘Maid’ on Netflix is an action thriller story of working class single motherhood with some excellent performances.

As a lover of SciFi, I am sorry to say that so far Apple TV's "Foundation" is (so far) very weak. Its one redeeming feature is that it's visually impressive. However, the characters are wooden. The overall story and the original concepts are excellent (thank you Isaac), but the TV rendition and subplots are feeble.

I'm starting to like it tbh... It has potential (thank you, Isaac)... Despite Lee Pace starring... Love/ hate relationship with that man... Terrific in HALT AND CATCH FIRE, but overall twat...
