There’s nothing worse than yet another lockdown Netflix list.
Heard about this series from Linux Outlaws many years ago. Jax Teller is a very handsome man. I am convinced he is the bastard son of Kurt Cobain and Brad Pitt.
A decent series about biker gangs in California that inevitably features gratuitous violence and goes through peaks and troughs (the season when they went to Ireland was very weak).
A slow burner. Almost gave up on it after one episode but this turned out to be worth the hype. A truly bizarre story.
Recommended by rpcutts. A sobering reminder of man’s inhumanity to man. Prosecutors who steadfastly refuse to admit defeat in the face of scientific DNA evidence. Innocent men locked up for years (sometimes on Death Row) and yet emerge with unbelievable grace and humility.
My wife’s choice. Eerily, I knew what was coming. Catastrophic event. Zombie apocalypse. Society breaks down.
A group of people find a settlement, encounter zombies on the march, spear zombies with sharp implement, find another settlement, zombies on the march, spear zombies with sharp implement, find another settlement. Rinse and repeat.
One of the most enjoyable elements was Alicia. This actress was just stunning. I don’t know if the distance between her eyes, nose, ears, cheekbones and chin all match the perfect ratio but she was strangely compelling.
It’s Ricky Gervais. If you’ve seen ‘Derek’, you’ve seen ‘After Life’. Why, he even uses the same actors so you get that comforting sense of familiarity.
I’m a sucker for football documentaries. I’ve watched the City one which revealed Pep Guardiola to be a rather intense manager. I hugely enjoyed the Sunderland one with the idiotic, pretentious, self-important marketing manager. This series felt more like a ‘David Brent’ spinoff than a true David Brent spinoff. And now we move onto the Leeds one. Only two episodes in but, disappointingly, there’s little insight into the coaching methods of Marco Biesla.
