    Well...it ends, sort of. But after 2 hours (maybe a little bit more) I decided that I had seen enough. I never play computer games (or any games) so this was a fun yet one-off experience.

    I'm already onto the second season and I'm really enjoying it. Yes, Catherine O'Hara is fantastic, and I also think the actress playing the daughter is doing a great job. There's also some lovely eye candy and something makes me laugh out loud every episode. Plus the episodes are only 20 mins long which is perfect as I have commitment issues.

    I'm glad you're enjoying it. I only have about five episodes left. I think it gets better and better. Then I will have to wait for Netflix to put the Christmas special up and then wait for the new season.

    The further into the season I get the more my appreciation for the actress grows.

    I just stumbled across new episodes of THE AFFAIR (Season 4). Hurrah hurrah, but why doesn't Netflix suggest this to me?
    My "best choices" list doesn't make any sense. (Sabrina, Merlin, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt ??)

    A financial intrigue in the style of DAMAGES. I binged the whole mini-series in one sitting.

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    Because Netflix knows the real you. It's like that episode of "Friends" where Rachel pretends her favourite movie is "Dangerous Liaisons" and her actual favourite movie is "Weekend at Bernie's."

    Ah, so you're a FRIENDS fan.

    And suddenly, everything makes sense.

    You're right! I just started season 3 and it really is getting better and better. And Jake makes a wonderful new addition to the cast!

    If you are in season 3 then you are close to meeting Patrick, who I adore. I think season 4 was the best yet.

    I like Jake too.

    Season 5 starts here in the US in a couple of weeks. I can't decide if I am going to watch this week to week or wait for it to get to Netflix so I can binge. I'm leaning towards waiting but in the meantime I am thinking that I will rewatch from season 1.



    I'm planning on starting You this weekend.

    Five episodes into You and I'm completely hooked. The writing is interesting for both lead characters.

    I finished You. It was crazy and fun. I don't know what I'm doing next.

    La Catedral is an old-fashioned, melodramatic and very sentimental mini-series - the heroes are pure and the villains are very, very bad.
    This would have been a TV hit in the 1980s, it's the same style as The Last Days Of Pompeii (1984) and there's no nudity or gore, maybe just a little bit.
    I found it very entertaining, it reminded me of the days when I read all those big novels by John Jakes and James Michener etcetera.

    A "liebesgeschichte" that revels in cliché soapiness - the first episode has a conflicted patriarch, an ambitious son (I think his wife is in a sanatorium), an impossible love affair and a paternity issue!
