Pretty sure I tried Stranger things. Looked lame to me. Isnt it full of irritating little kids designed for irritating little kids or am I thinking of something else?

Lazarus Project and the Rook sound intriguing.
It's also suitable for irritating adults ;)
No likee.........no watchee..................everyone happee

Yes irritating kids but more than enough adult themed stuff in it to hold our interest. It's right on the borderline between not scary and scary for us. We wouldn't like it any more dark tbh.

Yes to Picard.Our recent list has been
Outlaws
Two Doors down
Sherwood
Lazarus Project
Undeclared War
The Rook
But I do like longer series like Stranger Things or Saul.
If you get to like it there are someimes 6 series to watch.
Unlike a single film that can sometimes be too long(yes !!) episodes are shorter and become old friends to dip into like Coronation Street.
Sometimes the treat of a double bill and still plenty more left.
The only one I have is Outlaws which is a film so I will try that.
Could the others have a different name here, that happens sometimes.

I watched John Travolta a few nights ago in `A Civil action´ another true story and enjoyed it.

I wasn't picking. Just wondered if I missed something and gave up too early. I like fantasy, science fiction etc but not if it's a bit 'goonies". Try True Blood. Awesome and absolutely not for kids. :cool:

Managed three more episodes of Euphoria last night back to back. I can see why it won so many awards but dark it is. Do not watch with kids or maiden aunts for sure!

I don´t have any of these unless as I said they have a different title. My Netflix is .com I often don´t have the same as yours

`Good Morning Monica´ could that be `The Outlaws´ It´s a Brazilian Portuguese production.

I recommend IMDB for looking stuff up to discover what's what.


Many of the names used by movies and series and even episodes have been used before. It's not unusual to get four or five results in a search but in general the titles being referred to by people here tend to be fairly recent ones.

😫. 2.99€ an episode oh dear no it can´t be that good.
I tried that IMDB last year Alan, but a lot of it was not on my Netflix.

Perhaps you might look at IMBD this way Jan.

It will sort what's what for you when you see recommendations on here, you can then be sure that you are looking for the right thing, for example which one of the many things called The Outlaws it is that's been recommended. Thus you find that it's not Portuguese and that it has an interesting cast and is well rated. Then, if you like the sound of it and find it on your Netflix.com you will have found the right thing and you will have known exactly what you were looking for thus avoiding Portuguese sidetracks.

Of course if they want additional dosh for it you won't pay, but in time as it gets older it may end up being free and you might watch it then. That wouldn't happen unless you knew which it was and that is what IMDB will tell you.

I looked up the Series of Euphoria you suggested Barry and I read this
Rue is a 17 year old drug addict, with mental health issues and her life hasn't been going according to plan. After being released from rehab, Rue goes back home, and befriends a trans woman named Jules, who's about to change everything about her world.
That does sound really dark.....................is the same series. But you say it won some awards

Now I agree Stranger Things is a bit ET boys on bikes, but it's lighthearted by comparison.

There is a lot more to it than that but yes thats it. I thought it would be an American version of "Sex Education" which was brilliant, hilarious and occasionally moving. Maybe they gleamed some ideas from SE but its very very different. Ill stick with it though as its well acted and explores some difficult subjects although there is still humour. Not for the faint hearted.

If you have a good anti virus and add blocker you can watch it for free on 123.com
I´m reluctant to try when these alternative places are suggested in case I mess up the computer. Apple doesn't have anti virus apps I don´t think, but I have Addblock.

I think those sites will drive you nuts. Apart from the risks and constant pop ups and new windows they open if you ever manage to get a film or series to start playing they inevitably stop playing or buffer constantly.

Funnily enough I have seen before the problems you have had @JanHank with watching certain programmes. I had considered sending a PM to refer you to various sites where I download stuff,like the 123 mentioned.
But reading Barrys post he........... is right. It is a minefield if you are not computer confident.
It took me a while to realise that all those Russian girls didn't really want to meet me:oops::oops:

Likewise Farcebook Peter. I keep getting requests from young nubile young ladies requesting to be my friend.
I have decided Farcebook is 'populated' by a bunch of total nutters.

Theres a few fruitcakes on Facebook, not sure about nutters.
I had a friendship request from a very forrin name a few days ago, I have of course declined, but when I did that once before and checked on who it was I knew the chap quite well, he was using a nom de plume.

You make that sound like a bad thing

The Facebook algorithm will just be looking at what you have been searching for Ray and recommend accordingly :D
