    I keep meaning to go back to Breaking Bad as everyone seemed to say good stuff a out it but I'm sometimes put off starting anything long running that I didnt watch when it came out...same with how to get away with murder...it goes on...lol
    Generally I like supernatural, scary thriller horror type stuff ...think that may be the depression...lol cant stand a rom/com anymore...
    Also like the scandi dramas...Fauda was good..

    You’re welcome ?

    I really enjoyed The Crown. I won’t spoil it but I thought the acting was really great?

    I don’t know if either of these are on Netflix, they are just programmes I like that may fit what you are looking for.

    Robin Hood (BBC version) is good if you like action programmes. It is PG so not too violent or scary. It also has some humour. Whether it is a true story or not depends if you believe in Robin Hood but it seems true to life when portraying the old days and I really like it.

    Maybe this isn’t such a good suggestion because it is both science fiction and a little bit scary, but Torchwood is a bit of a detective show. I describe it as being like Doctor Who for grown ups. It is about a unit called Torchwood who are like detectives who investigate alien sightings.

    Please let me know what you think of The Crown once you have watched it.?

    It would be also interesting to know what people think of the new version of Dynasty? I do like a large variety of programmes ?though not only soap operas?

    I need to look for some wildlife and nature programmes on Netflix as well.

    Its not netflix but on amazon prime atm i'm watching 6 seasons of "the last ship" made 6 years ago but very relevant today as it's about a pandemic that kills 5 billion people, if you have prime I recommend it, i'm on season 4 so far.

    2024 Election won

    Thanks I will have a look at that?

    I watched Picard on Amazon Prime for any of those Star Trek fans out there. It took a while to get into but I enjoyed it?

    Thank you very much?

    I really enjoy watching nature programmes.

    I really like Monkey Life which is usually on Pick Channel but I think it’s on Sky Nature as well.?

    I’m glad you like Dynasty?

    @Cress Breaking Bad is SO good. Definitely one of my favourite TV shows, if not my favourite TV show, of all time. I'm sure it's not for everyone, but I'd definitely recommend sticking with it. They made a spin-off of it called Better Call Saul and that's amazing too.

    Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix.

    I don’t usually watch programmes like this but it has given me some good tips about how to organise things which I can find quite difficult because of my joints and fatigue. I find it difficult to move and lift things so I have found some useful tips. I haven’t watched the whole series yet.
