@AARPLynne -  no spoiler alerts, but this season is unlike any previous.  Happy viewing and let me know what you think when you are finished.

I don't presume to know your tastes, but my (eclectic) favorites from Netflix are "House of Cards" (new season just out), "Orange is the New Black", and as I am still a fan of the comic books I read as a kid I might suggest "Daredevil" and "Jennifer Jones" which are told in such a way that you do not have to be a fan of the comic they are borne from, just interested in good story telling mixed with an imagination.

Thanks Filmnoter, I have added your recommendations to my list.  I am still only getting the DVDs from Netflix.  I have begun watching more British TV shows on PBS as Downton Abbey hooked me and I became curious about the other British shows. Yes, I got hooked on several!  I really enjoyed the first disc of Last Tango in Halifax.  Hopefully I will be able to get all of them eventually on Netflix or PBS.

Hello LaDolceVita! I have been slacking and just rewatching dvds I own (what I call "comfort food" type stuff) instead of new things. I did watch Jessica Jones on Netflix, a Marvel character-based series, but the ending was a little flat and unoriginal. I saw a film fest film that is on Netflix now called Man From Reno, a Japanese crime novelist goes to San Francisco and gets caught up in a film noir crime of her own. Maybe you might like Sensitive Skin, a short British series starring Joanna Lumley. For something a little surreal and odd, try Far Side of the Moon. Those are some of the newer things I have watched on Netflix and recommend. Happy 2016!

Hello Filmnoter!  I am watching various shows which were on PBS and which I missed.  I have not seen any noteworthy movies in a while.  I will be watching Last Tango in Halifax this weekend.

American Horror story is good if you like shows like that. Netflix originals are pretty much good as well like orange is the new back - marco polo- ect

Thanks for letting me know Sue.  I will not bother with reading it, there are other books about this subject.   I highly recommend the movie though.

Goodness, I have not posted here in over 2 months.  I have not seen anything worth mentioning until "The Imitation Game", a movie based on the book Alan Turing: The Enigma.   I knew a bit about the Turing machine and this movie was quite educational for me.  Of course it took some liberties with the truth but it was great entertainment also.  One of those I would not mind watching again to figure out exactly what went on in the ending.  So much was going on at once that I got a bit lost.  I will try reading the book also.


Hi LDV, I never saw the movie,but I don't recommend the book by Andrew Hodges. He wasn't a good writer,I gave up reading it halfway thru,it was boring. Sue
