The first spin off is pretty good. It’s basically a continuation of the original show. I just started watching the one about Kanaan, but haven’t had time to get into it.

I liked the original series but haven't watched the sequel, mainly because I hated the kid.

So I think I've run out of things to watch on Netflix.  So thinking of cancelling and getting something else for the time being.  What do you all suggest?  I have Prime and HBO Max (HBO max is free with my internet).  Does Hulu have enough original programming to hold me over for a few months?  I know they have ER, which I want to watch over again, so that'll take me a few months.  What else is there?

Sounds like you've found a solution.

Two new ones for the crime genre fans: Kin, set in Ireland, which is really good even if I am struggling a little bit with Aiden Gillan as a crime family boss, only two episodes of the first season released so far but it's very well done and has me looking forward to the next; and Australian Gangster, which is a fairly good mini-series of two movie length episodes about a millennial gangster in Sydney - he's a total dick btw, but the show has a nice miami vice feel in parts with some cool scenes and some typical gangster stuff, so it's okay but not gripping.

Kin

 Australian Gangster

I've started and stopped season 1 of The Wire about 3 times in the last 3 years or so.

I finally restarted again and am almost to the end of the first season.

I don't think I'm wrong in saying that I'm on the bleeding edge of pop culture nor when I tell you guys that this show is pretty damn good and may likely be a hit.

You heard it here first, people.

I love me some Tommy Carcetti/Aberama Gold.

Good show. 

 

Yes, he was brilliant as Carcetti, his best work I think (I haven't seen Peaky Blinders yet - on the list) but in Kin he still seems to have a bit of Dr Alan Hynek about him to me, so I don't see him as very scary or ruthless yet. Early days though, and there is plenty good about the show aside from Gillen, he's just a small cog really.

Very excited for Succession to start back up. It's so damn good.

Also, HBO Max is the best streaming service. This is indisputable.

Brilliant and quite different TV. The only show I can think of where absolutely every one of the lead characters is an utterly despicable person that is pretty much impossible to root for. They are horrible, self-centred, disloyal, self-entitled, egotistical monsters with few if any redeeming features, and yet the show draws you right into their shallow, luxury lifestyles with aplomb. Backstabbing and betrayal at its very best and a virtuoso performance from the great Brian Cox.

I've done the same. I remember how good it was but forget how it's a slow build the I want to hurry up. The clips I come across on YouTube have been a great refresher and also from a different perspective because it was the second show I ever binge watched...I believe 2008 when I would go to Blockbuster every morning and get the boxed DVD sets.
