I'm at episode 9 of season 2 of Narcos and Escobar is building fences at his fathers farm. I gather season 3 is set in Colombia and season 4 is completely different and is set in Mexico.

Yeah. I think the Escobar story in S1&2 is outstanding, but the S3 storyline about the "Gentlemen if Cali" is pretty good as well. I'm one episode into the Mexico story & the jurys out as to whether it's worth continuing.

It is and there are only 10 episodes. This is the series that would be season 1 if they did it like history was in the Narco Wars.

Just finished the first series last night. I'll move straight on tonight I think.

Nice to see something different. I keep meaning to track down what Homeland was based on. Prisoners of War/Hatufim.
I've seen it's on youtube but no subtitles. Daillymotion has it but it's reversed and the subs are backwards.

Maybe watch in the mirror?

I'd suggest continuing. We just finished it off last night and it does get better.

Spoiler:
A few familiar faces from the original turn up, which is good. It does seem as though they are setting it up for a second series, El Padrino for the first, and probably leading into the end of his reign and the start of El Chapo.

Bit late to the party on this one, but Bodyguard is worth a watch.
Shetland series 3 has recently popped up here too, and is as good as prior seasons.
Not sure if I've mentioned it before, but Hinterland is worth a watch, I believe all seasons are on Netflix Canada.

I see Norsemen and Lilyhammer have been previously mentioned. Both worth a watch.

I'm actually re-watching Stranger Things from the start. Still holds up.

Really hoping the Dark pops up for a second season sometime soon, I believe it is coming.

You might say that but I couldn't possibly

Louis Theroux new series. Polyamory episode. Weird people in Oregon. Isn't this just new age hippies? Still, kudos to Theroux for making these thought provoking programs.

I saw all 3 if Altered States and think he did a great job. The one about dying had me shed a tear or two

Started second season of Patriot tonight.

There was a nice recap of the first season but I'd have been better moving from one to the other without a few weeks in between.
