"Punisher" Season 1 was awesome and I don't generally like Superhero movies/tv shows . What I liked about the show was that he has no super human ability, he is just as vulnerable as everyone else.

I am a huge Sci Fi Fan, and recently I watched another show on netflix "Ascension"

I cant recommend it for everyone, but those who love space and Sci fi, this is a good show (ending could have been better).

Completely agree, I too like superhero stuff with a darker tone and Pusnisher is right up there, the guy who played the lead is an awesome actor, almost picture perfect portrayal of a broken man hell bent on revenge.

I loved him in TWD too, and in that Brad Pit movie I don't remember the name.

Just finished watching Gavin and Stacey on Netflix. Its nice British comedy. Not suitable for many due to the different accents and dry British humour.

What I like about it is it focuses on relationships.

Has James Corden from the Late Late Show and Carpool who makes the show

Schitts Creek which has Eugene Levey ( jim’s Dad from American Pie). It’s ok comedy but that’s about it.

I am a huge fan of british shows... they are miles better than American counterpart..
Ofcourse one must be able to appreciate the dry dark humor to understand the show.

Bodyguard is absolutely fantastic.

There are other shows like "Happy Valley" and "Broadchurch" which are underappreciated but great crime drama.

The american award winning comedy "Veep" is actually a concept that was copied from "The Thick Of it" and the british show is miles more realistic and funny at the same time.

If you can appreciate dark humor and not easily offended than I recommend watching "The four Lions" and "Alan Partridge"

Yes, but it's only 20 seconds vs. the 1 minute of the original show.

In the 80s British comedies were so popular like Mind your language, Allo Allo and even Mr. Bean. Shows like Downton Abbey have been decent too, and the Americans can never replicate that.

The yanks tried to redo Inbetweeners but that flopped.

Life Below Zero is very hooking. Captures the attention of the audience.

Watching Designated Survivor Series 3. One main theme is they are promoting gays and trannies.

The tranny was somewhat tolerable but they showed two gays having an orgasm which was not well received.

Also watching Billions which has been decent with Axel fighting Taylor!

Castle Rock never really got exciting for me, after watching 6 episodes I decided to take a break and watch Swamp thing, did not finish the 1st episode, looks ok for now.
Doom patrol was quite annoying, none of the characters were likeable and too much weird stuff

Watching the anime UFO robot Grendizer from 1975!
Took me time to find a website that had all the episodes. But, as it's not English subbed, I have to download and then attach the correct episode's sub.
