    Good finds on Netflix

    "Jadotville." My son tipped me off to it. Highly recommended. It's a military story, based on a Cold War episode during the troubles in the Congo in the early 1960s. A group of Irish peacekeepers are the stars. It is a great illustration of how screwed up things were during the Cold War, but also quite gripping and inspiring.

    It's a Netflix original movie, not a series. Well worth the 2 hours it takes to watch.

    "The Wave." A smart, believable Norwegian disaster movie about real people. Excellent. (Subtitles.)

    My son finally talked me into watching “Stranger Things.” To my surprise I really enjoyed it. I’m not a huge sci-fi fan but the characters in this one are so well done and do endearing that I was swept up into it. Millie Bobbie Brown’s career is going to be fun to watch. She’s a talent.

    I am currently watching “Dark” on Netflix. It is a German series (subtitled in English) about some missing children in a small nuclear power plant town. It involves time travel (insert obligatory eye-roll) and shows the lives of town members now (2019) and 33 years earlier (1986). It has been really good so far and I love the musical score (lots of spooky and ominous sounds with good eighties music). So if you are in to mystery and crime tv/movies, I highly recommend.
