It is decent tho, not the best thing ever (as a lot of people make out) but still excellent.

Just started watching Dark, first episode suggests it's gonna be very good. It's German but they've dubbed over, which means I can do work whilst watching <diva>

Think I prefer subtitles to dubbing.

100%, dubbing is far too distracting for me.

Normally I'd agree but given I'm only half-watching it's fine. It took me half an episode before I even realised it wasn't actually an English programme

I remember when I first set up KODI, the sounds wasn't quite synced right - it was only about 1/10 of a second out but drove me mad that the lip movements didn't match the audio <laugh>

Similar thing happened back in the day when we got our first Freeview box <fist>

It’s far less noticeable when the picture moves before the sound, rather than the other way though.

Watched the first 3 episodes of Godless over the weekend. Pretty good so far. By great (yet) but good. Harry from Dumb and Dumber playing the baddie <laugh>

I finally got around to watching the first season of Stranger Things, and for once I wasn't disappointed after all the hype, thought it was amazing. Another recommendation I got was Black Mirror... That was f***ing awful! Think I'll stick with Inside No.9 for my anthology fix.

Black Mirror is one of the most overrated shows I've ever come across. It's dreadful.

Not Netflix but black dynamite cartoon on Hulu is the best thing ever made.

I concur Black Mirror is awesome.

anyone watched the Sinner thought it was good to start but wanned near the end.

Watched that Will Smith film Bright the other night, not as bad as people say, it's a total zone out movie

Finished Godless, good to watch for sure. Not in the great category IMO but decent.

I enjoyed it, definitely. But to be great it's got to be something you want to go back and watch again and again (which it isn't).

I'd put it in a similar category to Westworld. Very good and definitely enjoy it but will never rewatch it.

I can only think of three shows that I've watched over and over. Blackadder, Futurama, and IT crowd.
