Ozark season 3 is now out. I think that'll be next on the list after we finish series 5 of Peaky Blinders (I know there are two more, but they are not on netflix yet).

I shall have to suspend belief again and watch Ozark Season 3. I always found it was just a bit too implausible, but I enjoyed it nonetheless thanks to a great cast and 'different' scenery ... so I shall give it a go! (I can't help compare it to Breaking Bad, which just about toed the line of implausibility ... most of the time ... ).

It seems I was wrong about Peaky Blinders, and series 5 is the last one so far. IMDB listed 6 and 7, so I wrongly assumed they were released.

That'd make sense. I can see Arthur trying to fight with the covid, making it know that the peak f**kin' blinders won't stand for it, and it's going to obey them

What channel/service is that on...legal or otherwise

We have Amazon Prime free for a month and may sign up for Crave for a month as well. I think with Amazon Prime we get Acorn and Sundance Now free. We still have Netflix and the content free DAZN.

Any suggestions?

Stella was on one I rarely use - but it came in handy for something that only had half a season on the usual. Something I watched on there surprised me. You could see breaks in the line where the timer thing goes. Usually a sign of commercial breaks even if they are cut out. But on one of them a bit of hardcore porn came up. Doesn't bother me but my MIL was behind me at the time.

You enjoyed The Break (La Treve) among other things I believe. I find it useful to look at IMDB for something like that and then just follow the others supposedly like it. Often that's wide of the mark but for the foreign stuff it's a very useful guide.

There are half a dozen good things under "more like this" on the page for The Break and then more attached to those.

On Amazon Prime:

The Expanse. 4 Seasons of the best Sci Fi. Ever.
Good Omens - Dramatisation of the Neil Gaiman / Terry Pratchett book
The Boys - dark superhero stuff
The Hunters - haven't watched this yet but it gets good reviews.

Beforeigners.

Present day Norway after many migrants from the past have mysteriously arrived. Great idea and so far (2 episodes) it's working. From the past...before...geddit?

It's still basically a cop show with some amusing observations. "We don't say Vikings now, we say Norse Descendants."

The female character is uncannily like Saga from The Bridge.

This is good stuff. On the first couple of episodes I thought "yeah, yeah", I got more into it after about the fifth episode, I've just finished the eighth episode, and woombah, there we go. I'm up for the duration.

Thanks muchly for that pointer.

One can have too much of the Skandi-stuff, this is a welcome break.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hidden_(2018_TV_series)

We started watching this last night on Acorn TV (free trial via Amazon Prime also on a free months trial.....in Alan Partridge speak....Cashback). Not to be confused with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hidden_(2011_TV_series) which is also on Acorn and next to it on the listing.

Broody, wonderful landscapes of north Wales (I recognized places having been there as a kid), and some unusual characters and a sprinkling of welsh (with subtitles).

Also watching this...not the cheeriest feel good type of show but interesting nonetheless.
