    AK I've watched the first series and the second's just started. It's about a crime family in Southern California headed by the fantastic Ellen Barkin. Really enjoyable and great characters.

    AG is full on and far out. Anyone with a working knowledge of Norse Mythology (whaddya mean, that's unlikely on here?!) will get the backstory. Ian McShane plays his usual dark maverick as the mysterious Mr Wednesday (clue, based on Norse god Woden, where the name Wednesday comes from) and there are some seriously powerful scenes, several of a sexual nature, so those of a prurient disposition, look away! I'm up to episode 3 so far.
    Haha I do. On a second note; Didn`t Neil Gaiman write a novel called American Gods? I take this series is based on the novel?

    Yes, American Gods is on my list having come highly recommended.

    Started watching episode one of The Preacher too having been sold by its trailer.

    Yes, I think it's ended.

    I want to watch 'House of cards', so many have said it's good. I'm currently watching a French drama called 'The Returned', it's now made in English too, you can find it in the US section of Netflix.

    Havent watched Bates Yet. Going through House of Cards season 5, then Billions season 2 and then will get onto Bates. Its the final season right?
    This thread has gone quiet and just wondered if the recent crackdown on streaming is the reason why?
    Game of Cards is excellent. Cleverly written and very well acted. Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright (she's still looks amazing) are just perfect for the lead roles.
    Bates motel was also a top notch show and unlike a few series I've seen (Sons of Anarchy), had a decent ending. I didn't think it was going to be my cup of tea, but I'm glad that I listened to all you guys on here who recommended it.
    I've just started watching Jamestown and so far so good. It's about English settlers in Georgia circa 1619. Won't give too much away, but give it a go if you've got the time.

    Considering the title of the thread, haven't seen anyone comment on the 5th and final series. Won't give anything away in case some haven't watched it, but excellent show IMO and a decent ending.

    That's right Shania. Not bang into F1 myself but you can't help but admire someone at the top of their game like he was. ( i begrudgingly apply that ethos to Andy Murray even though he's such a dour sod )
    He did a lot for the underprivileged too.
    Yes he has certainly championed the cause of that sickly looking nation and gives a huge chunk of his winnings to universities and suchlike that educate the skirt wearers in basic hygiene and to not always eat deep fried food.nice one Andy.

    Agreed, Senna was a very charismatic driver. I really look forward to watch it.
