    Not the last season yet. There is one more. Both this season and next are shortened seasons lasting only 7 and 6 episodes, I believe.

    Netflix - Ozark

    Season One (10 episodes) - very good, has Jason Bateman (typically plays comedy, but is pretty good in this) and Laura Linney

    If you liked Breaking Bad, you'll like this. Even if you don't watch the entire season, I would highly recommend watching episode one. It is extremely good.

    Love Laura Linney. Is there someone in this series to cheer for? I'm pretty tired of anti-heroes.

    I have been watching Hulu's "The Looming Tower" of late and have enjoyed it, even if it is a bit slow-moving. It covers an FBI team in the years leading up to the 9/11 attacks. It has achieved it's implied goal of getting me to research events as they come across on the show.

    HBO miniseries Cherynobl is phenomenal (not a documentary). Anxiety ridden great tv.

    For those not aware, the 3rd season of Bosch is out. It’s pretty good.

    Already watched it. I think it’s the best season yet. (It’s the 5th season.)

    I have really been enjoying “Unforgotten,“ a BBC/Masterpiece series. I’m in the fourth season now. It is basically a cold case detective series and is done quite well. It defies the stereotype. Complex plots and characters we can care about.

    Three series, each consisting of six episodes, have been broadcast in the UK, as of August 2018. Each series deals with a new case, introducing seemingly unconnected characters who are gradually revealed to have some relationship with the victim. As the murder mystery unfolds, the emotional ramifications of the crime are also explored in the lives of those affected.

    I searched but and find any discussion here about The Detectorists. A great little BBC series on Amazon about some rural English metal detection enthusiasts. Not much exciting or spectacular, just great characters and dialogue. Charming and enthralling. You’ll probably recognize some of the actors from bit parts in other shows.

    Just finished Chernobyl. It was excellent. I know I was vaguely aware of what was happening at the time, and maybe that was because the West did not have a good idea of all that was happening. I couldn't help but ask myself which was worse, the Soviet leaderships lies and misinformation to its own people about that event or the lies and misinformation of the US military, the Johnson and the Nixon administrations to the US people about Viet Nam.
