Netflix recommendations

I started watching a while back after a colleague recommended it but I didn't fully get into it... it felt a little too 'network television' for me. Maybe I will give it another shot.
Some parts do seem a bit like that especially in the first and second season.
I read that NBC actually cancelled the show after season 3 but Netflix has now picked it up and is producing season 4. Will be interesting to see if there is a difference with a bigger budget.
Really liked The Times Square killer documentary Netflix has at the moment. It’s 3 episodes long and gets straight to the point. It seems like Netflix has heard criticisms of their weaker crime documentaries being bloated and longer than they need to be, especially when the story doesn’t have much going for it.

I had no idea Times Square was once basically the red light district! The crimes committed are horrendous but I also learned a lot, so a win win for me.
I really enjoyed this too. But I'm a total sucker for these crime docs. This was a decent effort though.

Echoing the views on Arcane. I didn't think it was for me at all, but it's fucking sensational. Also think I might have awakened a new kink because the character of Jayce was so hot. Oh my.
Just finished Arcane....

An actual classic. Just read it took them 6 years to make this, consider me perched for season 2 in 2028!
I've been binging Netflix true crime endlessly and this is the quick review you didn't ask for:

The Motive - Kinda horrible. I thought the reenactments were real but very bizarre story/case. One of the cops were so annoying and the defense lawyer was basically a horrible bullshitter. I hate lawyers.

Murder By The Coast - Amazing. Watch it. Slightly too long and then had a rushed ending but still so good and well done.

Sophie: A Murder In West Cork - I saw the twist coming in the first episode itself but still very watchable and strange and harrowing tale. I'm so convinced that the person at the end did it.

Elize Matsunaga: Once Upon A Crime - I'm surprised Brazil has a rule to let prisoners out for two weeks to rehabilitate. This was a good one as well. She's a monster even-though she's trying to convince otherwise.

The Ripper - I enjoyed this one alot.

Why Did You Kill Me? - This was just okay as well. Skippable.

Crime Scene: The Times Square Killer - This was just okay for me. Very skippable for me.

The Raincoat Killer - Stylishly filmed. Amazing. Insane story!

Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes - This was very well done and doesn't overstay with too many filler episodes. Imma have nightmares.

The Women & The Murderer - This was fine but the court/trial retelling was good.

Dig Deeper: The Disappearance of Birgit Meir - AMAZING. Loved it. Perfect length too!

Monsters Inside: The 24 Faces of Billy Milligan - Skip it. TRASH.

Under Suspicion: Uncovering the Wesphael Case - He did it. I'm so sure about it. Absolutely bizarre case.
I'm shook that he got off and got compensated by the government after.
