I hardly ever bother with Hulu for whatever reason, but added a couple things to try.  

Got through a couple episodes of Killing Eve, and I am really liking this so far.   Interesting premise, and I am oddly drawn to the psycho assassin. 

Killing Eve is great, but yeah, Hulu pretty much sucks. I suspended ours

I remember enjoying that in a kind of dumb action movie way, but if you thought Witcher was a mess, good luck with that one. 

Ouch, maybe I'll try The Expanse first.  

Good choice.

Fwiw, peaky blinders is probably the easiest to appreciate from the giddy-up. Expanse took me a couple tries before I found the groove with it.

Subtitles are a must though. I gave up 2 episodes in without them.  After a second go ( because of the advice here) with subtitles I got hooked and blew through 4 seasons in a few nights.  Great show.

I started it for Handmaid's.  

Added Eve, Castle Rock, Homeland, 12 Monkeys, and I think The Terror to the queue.  

I would probably watch Buffy over and over if not for the non-HD and format annoyance.

Narcos Mexico season 2 comes out mid Feb.  Looking forward to it as season 1 was great.

I liked the French animated film I Lost My Body. However, part of the plot is about a severed hand roaming around town to find its body.  If that sounds too weird maybe you should skip it.

Doesn't sound weird at all.

Watching "Ozark" now. Its kinda meh. Interesting story, but nowhere near the intensity of a show like Breaking Bad. 

Most shows are "meh" compared to BB.

Went fishing for suggestions on Facebook and came up with the following, in no particular order:

Bosch

The Expanse (multiple recommendations)

Altered Carbon (multiple recommendations)

Jack Ryan

Ozark (multiple recommendations)

Longmire

Russian Doll

Umbrella Academy (multiple recommendations)

Banshee

Peaky Blinders (multiple recommendations)

Good Omens (multiple recommendations)

Messiah (multiple recommendations)

The Outsider

68 Whiskey

Yellowstone

Billions

Ray Donovan

The Magicians

Patriot

Most would laugh at me but I enjoyed Banshee. 

Jack Ryan season 1 was enjoyable. 

Peaky blinders excellent 

Thought good omens was terrible.

Ozark is fun. 

Altered carbon decent 

Never could get into Russian doll.

Just started the expanse. Going to give it some time.

I watched "I Lost My Body" tonight too.  I liked it a lot as well -- story is pretty captivating and original, and loved the score. Definitely has some of the French-style elements to it that are probably not for everyone.

Watching The Expanse - it's really good.  Hardcore halfway through second season.

One of my favorite sci-fi shows. I didn't think season 4 lived up to the previous 3, but really glad Amazon picked it up and are making more shows.

The Lost Unabomber Tapes on Reelz is a 4-hour, 2-part series that is totally worth the watch. fascinating.

Marriage Story should have been called Divorce Story. I can't believe I didn't fall asleep halfway through.

For fans of Catastrophe, Rob Delaney's Jackie standup show on Amazon is basically that.

One week until the final Bojack episodes. 

Drank a lot of bourbon.

A masterpiece of a show is completed.

I love that HBO Max will feature a curated list of classic film titles, refreshed each month by the folks at Turner Classic Movies; it’s not quite FilmStruck, but close enough.

 

I was just reading an article about HBO Max, and I didn't know this was a feature.   I will for sure be on day 1.

I'm probably the only one...but every time somebody posts in a color like that, I can't read it. The album draft was inscrutable for me.

Sorry - just wanted to indicate for sure that I was copy and pasting from an article.  

ETA:  and I guess it will have all the Studio Ghibli films too.

That was in my Netflix queue for a few years.  Everyone talks about how heartbreaking it is.  I could never bring myself to watch it.  :(

Started the show The Stranger. Quite interesting. 2 episodes in and I think I like it.  Let's see where it goes, though, as it's got a lot of moving parts.

Rewatched Kungfu Hustle for the first time since it came out (and the first time not high off my ###). Still great.

I’m sure someone’s already recommended it, but if you like artsy HBO productions, Euphoria is the best thing out there after Chernobyl.

Sex education - anyone?

I enjoyed season 1, watched the first few episodes of season 2.  Not a family show but funny. Just so long as HSers having sex doesn't bother you.

Started watching Broadchurch with the Mrs...were about halfway thru Season 2.  It’s phenomenal.

Would also say that while the entire show is not as Breaking Bad’s level, the finale of Season 1 was as good as the best BB has to offer.

On the advice in here I started watching boadchurch as well.

 

I should say...re-watchimg. Completely forgot I had seen it. Now I remember it being good...but apparently not memorable.

Maybe drop "Netflix" from the title and just say streaming shows.

As of right now, for me, HBO and Amazon are kicking Netflix's ###
