    No Netflix or Prime but I love the Mysteries on Acorn TV, especially The Crownies from Australia. Acorn has British, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand series. Drama, Comedies, Reality, Documentaries as well as mysteries like Foyle's War, Midsommer Murders and others that have shown on Masterpiece.

    Cheers

    Just finished season two of The Killing. Turns out I hadn't seen but half a dozen episodes in the first season. What a terrific show! Just picked up my little pile of Kleenex from crying during the last few minutes. Had to Google Mirelle Enos because why the heck haven't I seen her in anything else? She was terrific! Turns out I have been seeing her in ads for The Catch without knowing it. Amazing what makeup can do, Plain Jane has turned into a glamour girl!

    Try RAKE on Netflix. This is the original Australian series, not the American imitation with Greg Kinnear that died an early death. Neflix has the first three seasons. A fourth season was aired in Australia last year, but it hasn't arrived in the US yet.

    You're welcome! And I agree: by the time Season 4 came around, the series was more brooding than ever, and had lost its ability to produce great twist endings.

    Yes, she looks completely different when wearing a dress and makeup as compared to a baggy sweatshirt and hiking boots. Great actress, and well cast for The Killing.

    Just finished the first season of the new half hour show Glow about female wrestlers in the late '80s. Took me several episodes to really get into it, but overall a pretty good show. Then I noticed that across the bottom where they suggest other things I might like, there was a documentary about the real Glow. Quite interesting; somehow this totally got past me 30 years ago so now I feel like I'm caught up!

    I watch Netflicks quite often. I have watched Grey's Anatomy, Army Wives, Breaking Bad, Ned and Stacy, Shameless, The Crown, Blue Bloods, I'm watching now,. I saw a older movie This Boy's Life with Leo DiCaprio and Robert DiNero, had not seen it before. I try to find older movies that I may have wanted to see or have heard about .Recently, I watched To Kill a Mocking Bird. DH was surprised I had never seen it! I like watching Netflix because no commercials.

    I had also never seen To Kill A Mockingbird before Netflix. Cliff has a friend who goes by Angel May on one of his boards. Scout's brother calls her Angel May at one point during the movie, so of course we had to pause it while we exclaimed that that was undoubtedly where his friend Rita got her board name.

    We are very selective in what we watch and hardly find anything that captures our attention for more than 5 minutes. One series that we absolutely crave is Sherlock and we are now needing to wait another 2 years for the next season. :bawl: It's on Netflix.

    Bosch on Amazon is excellent.

    Shooter, the Netflix series based on the Bob Lee Swagger books, is very good.

    update on Netflix favorites:

    Bloodline*
    River*
    Luther*

    House of Cards
    The Crown
    Breaking Bad
    Midsomer Murders
    Father Brown
    Sherlock

    (Bloodline, River, and Luther were my favorites by far-----all very intense to say the least.
    Midsomer Murders and Father Brown were just plain fun as murder mysteries.)

    We recently began watching " Life Below Zero" on Netflix. It is a BBC documentary or sorts about different people living near the Arctic Circle. There are 4 seasons and we are on season 3. It is kind of interesting.

    Watched "RISE" on Amazon Prime the other night and thought it was a good movie.

    I've discovered I can't stop watching a series on Netflix once I get through a couple seasons. I was so DONE with Weeds and Californication that I watched the last two seasons of each in a marathon over a couple of days rather than watch some of this, some of that like I usually do. When a program on TV starts to lose my interest I just don't pick up again when they come back from a seasonal break. Right now I'm "stuck" in Shameless. There's that kernel of interest in the various family members, but I figure it's a forlorn hope that Frank will finally die of his alcoholism before they find a liver for him. I'm going to switch over to This Is Us on On Demand, assuming all the episodes are there when I check. Have been hearing good things, and at least two of the actors got Emmy nominations. I find that what's available On Demand seems to depend on the network. NBC in particular is pretty good about not only having the current season available, but also older seasons as well. Ended up being sure I watched Modern Family and Blackish live because it was hit or miss as to whether or not they would have missed episodes immediately available, while knowing I could depend on SVU and Chicago PD to be there for me as soon as I wanted to watch.

    Just finished 3 seasons of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries on Netflix. Absolutely wonderful.

    Well poop! I generally watch several series at one time, often stopping a series for awhile at the end of a season and then picking it back up. Finished Season 2 of Saving Grace about a month ago and went to finish the series with the final season tonight. But they've pulled it from rotation! The only "saving grace" to that is that I actually have the season 3 DVD listed for sale on eBay. We actually bought the series when Blockbuster was closing up shop. Six years in this house and we've never set up the DVD player and don't know how to and haven't missed it. So prepatory to selling on eBay I started watching the disks on my computer and thought to look on Netflix and happily found it. I guess it's back to my desk to finish watching it -- sure enough someone will buy it out from under me now so I'd better raise the price by $100 to buy some time!

    DW and I recently finished watching "Paranoid" on Netflix--a richly-detailed, character-driven British murder mystery series. I wouldn't put it quite up there with "The Killing" or "Bosch", but it's very well done.
