    "Enola Holmes", it's a mystery involving Sherlock's younger sister. Very well done. Two thumbs up.

    We just finished Young Wallendar. Excellent. And Norsemen is a hoot.

    I'm a sucker for anything holmes-ish, so that's now on the list, thanks.

    perhaps one needs to be within a particularly narrow window of age to appreciate it, but "Cobra Kai" is surprisingly well done.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Young Wallander
    I finished it over the weekend. The ending was an unexpected twist.

    I'm starting back in on DEADWIND, which I had started, but drifted away from. It's dark. Literally and figuratively.

    I just saw it two nights ago and in the first minute I was like "Who. Is. She." Fabulous facial expressions and emotions. Immediately afterward, looked her up on IMDB. Fantastic pics from years of acting on Stranger Things, which I have not seen. Currently 16 I think? Super bright future ahead. But she is a minor, so I hope this is all fun for her and her parents are providing good guidance and watching out for her closely.

    British child actors seem to do OK. Haley Mills, etc. And the Harry Potter gang seem to survive without all the tabloid histrionics of American child stars.

    The Last Kingdom.
    Watching a Russian sci-fi called Better Than Us. It's dubbed unfortunately but I'm enjoying it.

    "Midnight Diner" on Netflix is very worthwhile. Pure storytelling with no frills.

    Agreed, Young Wallander was terrific. We then went on a Scandinavian tear and have watched all 31 episodes of "Borgen" smart, sexy political drama about a female Danish Prime Minister.

    "Occupied" A 3 season Norwegian political drama/thriller centered around global warming and Russian occupation of Norway. And we are currently half way through"Rita" another Danish series, mostly a comedy about an outspoken and rebellious teacher who also happens to fill a pair of jeans quite nicely.

    All three are worth watching in the native language with the subtitles to get a full sense of the nuance and emotion. In "Borgen" and "Occupied" the characters occasionally toggle over into English dialogue and quite honestly speak English with better clarity than many native speakers here in the states. Highly recommend all three.

    Enola Holmes... ugh why was that a movie instead of an ongoing series? It should be an ongoing series.

    I have this grievance with a lot of british productions, they're just too brief.
    Sherlock.
    Catastrophe.
    Fleabag.
    Killing Eve (I know it's on 3rd or 4th season now but each season is only like 6 episodes so that's roughly equal to a single season in normal USA TV)

    I watched Ms. Holmes the other night. Not bad at all. Definitely worth watching, with a female main character, and several other strong female characters. A fun romp. I'll probably watch it again with my sweetie.

    I watched ‘Deadwind’, called ‘Skarppi’ in Finland. ‘The Rain’. ‘Norsemen’. ‘Enola Holmes’, yes. All the seasons of ‘the Last Kingdom’. Tons of stuff on Netflix.

    "Kim's Convenience" on Netflix. A Canadian sitcom series; Korean immigrant family running a 7-11 type store. Short (less than 30 minute episodes), humorous and quirky.

    We use it as a break between or after intense
    dramas. A nice, pleasant series.

    I've never found a single movie I wanted to watch on Netflix. The other night a list of Netflix must see movies popped up while I was on Youtube. There was one sci-fi that looked really interesting so I decided to watch it- not available on Netflix- despite being recommended as a Netflix must see- but here's a whole bunch of other movies similar to what you actually wanted to watch- bunch of bottom orifices.
