Netflix recommendations

Thought this might be useful. It's not always easy to find good stuff on Netflix and their recommendations are sometimes a bit shonky...... so beyond the obvious stuff, what are PJers watching on Netflix and why?

Me: The Pass.
Why? Initially for Russell Tovey in his pants, but then it gets pretty dark, and the acting is great.

I'm watching a German series called Babylon Berlin right now and it's fantastic so far (I've watched the first 4). The direction, performances and scripts are top notch, the costumes and sets are beautiful, and it's actually a lot of fun despite being quite dark as well. Also the lead actor could like... get it.
 
He/him
Travelers with Eric McCormack is brilliant too. The second series was just released before Christmas. A mix of Glitch and the returned.
 
Second BoJack. It’s very, very good. But also very bleak. It’s really sharply written satire.

Similarly Rick & Morty.

And its run was cut short, but Sense8 is an assault on the senses and should be experienced, particularly if you’re queer.
 
Halfway way through the third season of Love and I feel like it's gonna go to some really unexpected place. Plus Claudia O'Doherty is a hoot.

I still haven't watched the second season of this. Even though I watched the whole of season 1 and enjoyed it I couldn't quite bring myself to commit to season 2. I think the characters annoyed me just a bit too much. Maybe I should give it a go.
 
I just finished Terrace House: Boys & Girls In the City and I recommend it if you're looking for something chill but still interesting to watch. It's a Japanese reality show that has six strangers living together in a really nice house - kind of like The Real World but with a lower drama quotient. It's really fun to watch the social dynamics develop between the house members. Also, nearly everyone on the show is hot.
