I confess I find it quite difficult.

Exceptions: Muriel's Wedding. The Killing Of Angel Street. And New Zealand's Carry Me Back.

Just had a looks at the britbox website. Good to know it’s a legitimate thing from the BBC and ITV. Think I might give it a go.
Thing is, what about channel 4? A little search seemed to indicate that they were going to be on britbox but don’t think that happened.
Im guessing C4’s streaming stuff doesn’t work here and you’d need to muck around with VPN’s and the like

Currently binge watching 'Velvet' on Netflix, set in a fashion store in late 1950's Madrid, it's in Spanish with subtitles, Story about the owners family after the owner throws himself from the top floor.
There are 4 series, each episode about 70 mins long, there is a follow on series, also on Netflix called 'Velvet Collecsione' (sp), not started that yet.

Excellent. I knew both were coming, but not exactly when.

Gave Dogs Of Berlin on Netflix a go. Nice plot but didn't like the dubbing into English, plus the voice of the lead character (you can read that as both kinds of lead ) sounded like Arnie.

Had enough after 3 episodes. And the football scenes...when will they ever learn that it looks so unreal, especially for a top international match.

Danish cop show - it features that round police building in Copenhagen from The Bridge.

Seems to be four stand alone movies. The DQ seems optional. The first three are on Netflix.
Department Q: The Keeper Of Lost Causes (2013)
DQ: The Absent One (2014)
DQ: A Conspiracy Of Faith (2016)
DQ: The Purity Of Vengeance (2018).

Watched the first one. Very good.

Currently binge watching a Netflix series 'Intersection' It;s a Turkish series, English subs, with 26 episodes set over 3 series, A Turkish family involved in shipping with a young CEO who wants to build a car. one character is a total waste of screen time but the others are OK. Biggest drawback to watching is the fact that each episode is some 2 and a half hours long making them the same length as feature films

That may be a Turkish thing.
I watched a show with a cop who was not exactly 'by the book' but nor was anyone else in it. That was a long episode too. I decided not to continue as it all looked a bit amateurish.

I'm not sure if it has been mentioned here, but I am half way through watching season 2 of Ozark (it's on Netflix). I'd give it a solid 8/10
