Has anyone seen Killing Eve? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7... It's pretty well done, and one of the lead actors is amazing at accents. Basically two psychopaths, one's a cop and one's a killer, have a weird relationship with lots of hijinx. Reading tduds and xjla going at it in Politics Central made me think of it...

Fine but I call dibs on Sandra Oh.

No offense intended, of course. Sandra Oh is great but I'm really impressed with Jodie Comer's acting, including but not only her skill with accents. On the last episode I watched she did a decent Long Island accent but with Russian accent undertones, though her real accent is British.

They're both so good in that show. We've only seen the first season. Thanks for the reminder to catch up!

We're on season 3 now--it just gets better, and more fun as they develop the characters and add some new ones.

Okay, this is for an audience of one (me), and it's not even a streaming show; I watch it on YouTube.  It's called 8 Out of Cats Does Countdown.  A British mashup of multiple formats (hence the weird title), it's like finding yourself at a party in London full of funny and competitive strangers.

Half comedy roast, half game show, and half talk show, it features a resident lexicographer, an Oxford-educated mathematician who looks like a supermodel, and the "eye candy" stage assistants are male.  There are usually at least 9 people (comedians, musicians, writers) on stage.  Unlike US shows, the humor is raucous and adult, and its hour length allows for diversions (songs or poems or stunts) minus the American scripted race for time.

I stumbled across it by accident, and am happily hooked.

Haven't been following this thread to closely, but "The Imposters" on Netflix is one of the best shows I've watched in a long time.  Not to serious, funny, enjoyable tv!

It's probably been mentioned earlier in the thread but I just started the second season of Fargo and found the first season to be very well done. Perfect roles for Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks and Keith Carradine. The second season has a different feel (and story) but so far so good. Seeing Nick Offerman with a chin beard playing a conspiracy theorist was hilarious.

Just started "The Day" on Topic TV. 12 episodes. An easy manageable binge.

Also following Wandavision.

Watching The Victim, with the woman from Trainspotting, that also played in Boardwalk Empire...it’s okay. Just finished Deadwater Fell with the Dr. Who from Broadchurch...was better than expected and trying to watch Crashing by and with Phoebe Waller-Bridge from the brilliant Fleabag and Killing Eve...And occasionally an episode of The Great British Bake Off with the guy from Little Britain and the one from the Mighty Boosh, can’t go wrong there...

Currently on season 8 of Homeland. Borgen is next. Just finished Borderliner and The Rain, both in original audio and no CC's. I have a habit of watching things in the original language!

Me too when that original language is either Dutch or English.

Has someone already mentioned Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet? It's very funny, and the Dark Quiet Death episode weirdly loving and sad.

the movie Cherry is *beautifully* made. Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo are excellent. Granted the we music helps the emotional punch a lot! But nonetheless I wept. To quote Charles Bradley, why is it so hard to make it in America?!

The Apple show Trying is wonderful. Funny and sad and touching.  They remind me of my husband and myself, deeply in love, struggling with a screwed up world of expectations, but trying.

I'm sure Peaky Blinders has been mentioned but that's our current show. For some reason I didn't know anything about it and the name made me think "Faulty Towers." Boy was I wrong. Pretty dark but well done. Some very attractive, and talented, actors. I only know Sam Neill from Jurassic Park so it's quite a different role for him.

Anybody watch Shrill? We're almost done. Great show. Ostensibly about an overweight woman and her daily life, but there is much more to it, and probably relatable for anyone who isn't perfect.

We watched the first season and loved it. I'm kind of a sucker for anything filmed in a location I know, which is what pulled me in, but by the end I was totally invested in the characters & story.

& speaking of locations I know, there's a wedding episode I haven't seen (in season 2 i think?) that takes place at the hotel where my wife and I had our wedding weekend. Definitely need to watch that!
