It's hard to believe Amy Adams was in Drop Dead Gorgeous way back when but boy has she come into her own. I've been a huge fan since American Hustle.

Right now on Netflix, I'm watching Glitch and enjoying it (about 3 episodes in). I know there was something similar on US tv a few seasons back but I never got past a few episodes.

Finished it today, Mizinvanccourver. After 4 episodes, I was thinking we were going to have a conclusion and I thought it was a good mini series, nothing more. And then the last 5 minutes happened! Yes, there has to be another season, LOL!

This isn't on Netflix, but on Acorn tv, if anyone has that Channel.

The show is called Ladies of Letters and I'm finding it quite amusing. It's a half hour comedy about 2 older women who meet at a wedding and write letters to each other. It's mostly a monolog of the woman who is writing the current letter with an occasional quick flashback as she's speaking. It's all you need.

It's very quirky and I can imagine Grace and Frankie getting inspiration from this show, though I have no idea if they did or not.

One of the women is the actress who plays the mother in Last Tango in Halifax. She's always a hoot in whatever show she is in.

We're right in the middle of Season 5 of Offspring. We love it and can really relate to the funny and sad moments. We've connected so much with the family that we're afraid of ending the Season. Really, really looking forward to Season 6 and 7.

I have been enjoying Scott and Bailey http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1843678/. Its British about 2 female cops but the characters and writing make it unusual, fun and gritty to watch.

Thank you for "Ladies of Letters".
I started watching the series and am enjoying it.
I subscribe to Acorn via Amazon Prime.

I have been binge watching Paranoid on Netflix and enjoy it despite wanting to tell Nina to get a grip. Only 2 episodes to go and then I will need a new show.

Sugar, I loved all the "Paranoid" episodes, especially that tastiest of critters, Dino Fetscher, who played Alec. I thought his acting was quite convincing as the shy detective trying to get close to the mercurial Nina (I agree: what a nutburger!). I was also (pleasantly) shocked to learn that Mr. Fetscher is a "friend of Dorothy" in his personal life. He and Neil Patrick Harris (on "How I Met Your Mother") - you'd never know! - as I said, excellent acting!

One thing that bugged me to no end were all the scenes the Lucy character had with the detective Bobby character. She must have uttered his name 1,000 times - every single sentence she'd include his name (as if she had to make sure he knew that she knew what his name was!). Very annoying!

Cablejockey, we love Scott and Bailey too. It's wonderful to see two strong women leads in a show.

It's amazing how you can feel part of the Offspring family and really love all the characters and their quirks. I feel like we just lost our new family ever since we finished Season 5. I keep googling for Season 6 of Offspring in Canada.

Finished Paranoid and hope they do additional seasons.

What to choose for my next bit of binge watching? Suggestions welcome for either Netflix or Hulu.

I cannot abide crass, crude, base, low rent "humor/comedy" such as 2 Broke Girls, The Detour or Transparent.. Nor are they funny. I do like dark comedies, however, they must have humor.

Just finished Inside the Worlds Toughest Prisons. Its a 4 episode documentary/reality show. Started it reluctantly but was fascinating and i would have enjoyed seeing more. The host goes into the prison population for a day or more with no guard protection. I wouldnt so much as jay walk in those 4 countries. Lol Was mentioned that one of them was under investigation for human right violations, hard to imagine they all weren't.

I have been watching Broadchurch on Netflix. It is a Scottish crime drama about an 11 year old boy who is found dead. I've only watched five episodes of Season 1 -- so far, very good.

I believe there will be a total of 3 series of Broadchurch. I seem to recall reading that series 3 was recently completed. I thought series 1 was better than series 2. I do love me some David T.

I watched Finders Keepers last night. Bizzare. Oddly, I don't recall hearing of that situation before as it seems to have been quite the news story because it is unbelievably weird.

Just finished watching season one and two of Detectorists. It's a lovely, heartwarming comedy. The two main characters are endearing. The half hour shows go by very quickly and I'm sorry it ended. I searched for a season three and it may be in production. What I did find, though is many people who just love this show as much as we did.

I have watched both seasons of The Detectorist. I thought it was ok and will watch the 3rd season if he decides to write it. It is billed as a comedy and that is a bit of a stretch as it isn't really funny or wry even. I think I only laughed twice and grinned a few more times when it was a bit amusing. It does manage to have a bit of sweetness to it. You find yourself hoping things go well for most of the characters. I like the theme song.

I did find Detectorists quite "laugh out loud" funny and endearing. It's interesting how we all see things differently.

True, we all have different likes and perspectives. I am curious at what you found lol funny as I found those moments very rare.
I believe it won a BAFTA for comedy which surprised me. I am quite the British comedy fan. Really enjoying HULU for that. Have also found a few funny Australian comedies.

Apologies to those who have already praised the incredibly magnificent Happy Valley -- I must add my name to the list of people who consider this a great show. And by great show, I mean GREAT SHOW! Every single episode is loaded with tension. I just can't get enough of it. I've read that there will be a season three in 2018. It's going to take me a while to recover from that nude scene (in season two) that featured Kevin Doyle. To me he'll always be Mr. Molesley from "Downton Abbey" - quite shocking to see him so thoroughly out of his servant's uniform!

I really enjoyed Happy Valley. I am looking forward to series 3. I've read that will be the last series but I rather hope they change their minds and make many more.}}
