We binged all 5 seasons of Money Heist recently.

Have also gone back to Ozark too, restarted S3 again which I abandoned a few years ago.

I love Ozark, although in S3 its starting to get a little contrived

This is Going to Hurt i sgood as well, although I remember the books being funnier, and less PC

Thats the BBC for you I guess

Juggling a few things at the moment.

Amazon Prime:
Reacher

BBC iPlayer
This Is Going To Hurt
The Responder

Netflix:
Stay Close

Disney+
Bones (nearing the end of season 8 at the moment)
Big Sky season 2

And from other sources as we can't wait for the UK platforms to catch up . . .

The Rookie season 4
Seal Team season 5
S.W.A.T. season 5
New Amsterdam season 4

Oh - actually Seal Team season 5 has just finished. We've just watched the last cliff-hanging episode. Bummer. Long wait for season 6 and a rumoured film now I guess.

I see that Stranger Things season 4 has a release date set for May 2022 in the UK. Bring it on, although I expect the dynamics are going to be very different to the previous seasons.

Watching Stay Close reminded me about another Harlan Coben adaptation I saw a few years ago - The Five.

I'd like to watch it again, and have just received it (used) from Music Magpie for £3 and some change. I think I could have watched it on Amazon Prime for £9.99 but that kind of sticks in the throat when I already pay a subscription to them.

Drifting slightly . . .

I did actually pay Amazon Prime extra for the last Fabulous Baker Brothers TV series - but that was the only way I could get to watch it. Not available on DVD. Ho hum.

This is it, in case anyone is wondering (I have their previous 2 series on DVD):

Promising Young Woman

Rating: ****

A kind of avenging angel comedy/drama/thriller with a very dark edge, this won the Oscar for Best Screenplay in 2021 and was nominated in several other categories (writer/director is Killing Eve Season 2 showrunner Emerald Fennell).

One such was Best Actress for Carey Mulligan - and I have to say she is utterly astounding, so quite how Frances McDormand was preferred for the award for the underwhelming Nomadland is baffling.

Some reviews described this film as a furious statement for the "#MeToo" movement, but that strikes me as far too simplistic - this is a multi-layered film that slowly twists the viewer round its finger, culminating in one of the most tense and disturbing extended final scenes I have endured in a long time.

Highly recommended; but, as mentioned, do be warned - it's pretty dark!

Still watching M*A*S*H every day, 66 episodes in now. 290 to go! Nearing the end of the third series.

Crikey Slim I'm doing the same with Heartland! (what?) there are 234 episodes wife and I are on 172.

Heartland is a lovely series based in Canada, Alberta about daily life on a farm that looks after horses where the main character is a young lady who is a horse whisperer/trainer.

I continue to watch the marvellous Norally travel the world on her motorbike single-handedly on the Itchy boots You Tube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/ItchyBoots

Currently travelling through Central America.

She is a truly amazing person.

From The Land of Honest Men

Slim

I got bored of it halfway through the last series. It really seemed to ramble and lose momentum.

Servant Season 3.. it's gone a bit shit as well...
From The Land of Honest Men

Slim

The cruellest M*A*S*H episode of all, today. Henry gets to go home, but the writers kill him off.
