    Didn't mean to imply it would happen due to contract, just to momentum. They've already nixed LC and IF which pretty much ends defenders as I don't see Mike Colter or Finn Jones signing on without their own show (I could be wrong). JJ is great, but I think interest will drop off if Defenders isn't around. DD may survive as stand alone.
    I hope none of this happens, but I just feel Netflix is less excited about the project w/ the Marvel channel.

    As for LC, I get that I'm in the minority, but it was tied w/ JJ for me. I actually liked how the conflict was more down to Earth and limited as well as the slower pace.
    Then again, I'm also the lone person on Earth that preferred Superman Returns to Man of Steal, so . . . .

    I don’t have 5 because I’m more of a movie guy than series guy, but the wife and I just watched the first episode of The Haunting of Hill House. Creeeepy!

    Watched ‘Beirut’ on Amazon Prime last night. Enjoyed, thought it was pretty good. Tony Gilroy, the main cog behind the Bourne movies was the screenwriter.

    I realize it's not a series, but I enjoyed Outlaw/King on Netflix. There were some pretty graphic battle scenes, so caution is advised if that may bother you.

    I know it's not Netflix, but appears this thread has morphed more into a streaming of all kinds thing now, so I'll add that I just started The Man in the High Castle. I'm completely hooked, I blew through season 1 now over halfway through season 2. This season definitely starting to show the Philip K. Dick authorship.

    Finished ‘Bodyguard’, a series on Netflix yesterday. It’s only 6 episodes, and not bad. I really like the British stuff vs most of what’s put out here.

    Is anyone watching America to Me on Starz? It's a 10 part documentary series directed by Steve James (Hoop Dreams) about the achievement gap between white students and African American students set at my kids' high school. Haven't seen it myself but it's supposed to be very good.

    my five:
    the killing
    Luther
    manhunt
    Yellowstone
    the Ranch

    Dexter is my all-time favorite show but I watched it before it was on Netflix so I didn't count it..

    Luther is amazing! very complex characters and Ruth Wilson (Alice) is so freaking sexy!

    Manhunt: Unabomber was fantastic! Sam Worthington and Paul Betany give absolutely unbelievable performances!

    The Killing is edge of your seat at all times! the evolution of holder and linden through the course of four seasons are extraordinary

    Yellowstone is very well done and it spares no detail in the ranching industry.

    the Ranch keeps me laughing and the cast is top notch!

    Wife and I currently hooked on Broadchurch, an English crime drama very well written and acted. The writers kind of mess with your head as you try to figure out whodunit.

    I'm so smitten with Alice! (Ruth Wilson)

    first episode, there's a scene where she asks John Luther if he came to her apartment for sex. ..

    if she asked me the way she asked him, I would be like "MM, YES PLEASE!!!"

    Let me know when you start it and tell me what you think.

    I have to rate you a competent judge based on the pic you include in every post. Now I have to check out this Luther show and see about Alice.
