Does Unorthodox miniseries (Netflix) not deserve even the slightest mention? I'm surprised that it didn't make here yet.

Anyone seen it?

the Israeli Kan has a new show called טהרן / Tehran.
sounds really excited, BUT Apple TV got the rights for it so you cant watch it from outside Israel
any free VPN with Israeli location?

Excellent show. Watched all 8 episodes.
Hope there is a season 2

Looks like Money Heist hasn't been mentioned here, perhaps Netflix's best show ever. A big sensation in Europe and Israel but less popular in the US.

Emily In Paris has excellent subtle cultural nuances, and does an incredible job of gradually developing the characters & their relationships instead of presenting them bluntly. It is soapy though.

Dynasty is very good, similar to Amazon's Succession.

Israeli's Kann also has a very good new show called Manayak - a derogatory term Israeli cops call the AG's police crime investigations unit. It is based on a true story, and portrays the common dark dealings in the halls of the Israeli justice system remarkably accurately. Like Tehran, it can be easily found by searching Telegram for channels named after them.

The Queens Gambit on Netflix is pretty good

Great show, thanks!
והיה זה שכרי

His Dark Materials is worth watching, especially if you read the books.

If I find a dead deer, I don't have to fight a bear for it. I don't even have to eat it if I don't want to.

How so? Watched both and didn’t come out with that conclusion. If I think about it both include main characters that are overachieving females with a tough childhood, but still doesn’t give me a similar feeling at all. Also think queens gambit is a far better show so far.

That's what I meant

Queens gambit is more concise but I think I enjoyed Firefly Lane more. To each their own.

Just jumping in here with some random comments:

  • I saw Coming 2 America, it was *meh* - cute with a lot of easter eggs and 1-2 good jokes, but not a worthy successor to the original.
  • Sucks that the pandemic slowed down productions of new seasons that I was hoping to see by now - Hanna, Jack Ryan, Money Heist
  • Shot in the dark here, but anyone know which US service has 'Hashoter Hatov' seasons 2 and 3 - Season one is on netflix, but they never picked up the others.
  • If you feel the need to see some 'classic' tv, try the pluto.tv app. It's free (it has commercials) but has a lot of old TV shows
