    Stuff worth watching on Netflix/Amazon

    Rules:
    • It has to be UK only - no VPNs etc allowed
    • You have to give a series name and a 1 line synopsis.


    I'll go first.

    Designated Survivor - Kiefer Sutherland is the sole survivor of an explosion on the US capitol and becomes president. Intrigue and conspiracy follow.
    Breaking Bad - Dying high school chemist starts manufacturing crystal meth.
    Better call Saul - Spin off of the above based around Walt's shady lawyer.
    Star Trek Discovery - Star Trek for the new generation - way darker than previously
    House of Cards - Kevin Spacey is a senator trying to gain power in the US government
    Stranger Things - A more adult version of The Goonies....

    What else is worth a watch?

    True Detective (Season 1) - two US Detectives, working together past and present, act their socks off and utterly hook you into the best story you're likely to ever see in one season.

    ALL THE MARVEL STUFF. Perhaps its just me but I love them all

    Luke Cage and Dare Devil were probably the best of the bunch so far.

    Shooter - Ryan Phillippe reprises the Bob Lee Swagger, US army sniper role in the TV spin off of the big screen film.

    Re: Stuff worth watching on Netflix/Amazon

    13 Reasons Why - Teenager commits suicide, but creates a set of tapes before hand detailing the reasons for her choices, focusing on a particular person each episode and how that person betrayed her, with the cumulative effect on her well being being the reason for her course of action. It's more of a teen drama with a serious subject matter, but I really enjoyed it regardless.

    Scorpion - A group of super-geniuses work as contractors to the NSA to help save the day, working alongside an NSA handler as well as a waitress-turned-interpreter (helping regular people understand the super-geniuses and vice-versa) who also has a super-genius son.

    I would have also liked to suggest Chuck (and would have included a synopsis of course), but can't as that isn't currently available on either service.

    Oh another one to add:

    The Good Place - a dark comedy with a weird twist, but don't read anything about it before watching.

    Depends, I read one line to mean one sentence. b0redom needs to rule or I need to step off my pedantic box.

    *Edit* - Having said that then b0redom has broken his own rules under my interpretation with his first review .............jim slinks quietly off to the corner of the forum
