Might as well put it in here rather than all over the board
Recently watched all of the US version of Shameless and absolutely loved it!

I know the English actress that plays Sheila in the UK version, such a great character lol

Am currently watching "Occupied" which is a Norweigan detective/ thriller
I love the cool colours of Northern interiors/cinematography and their language is weird sounding but intriguing

Also  London Spy which I just started watching, it's very good
About a gay spy and his murder, based partly on a real event a couple of years ago in London
Delivers hot gay sex scene in first episode, I like :)

I occasionally watch Stranger Things but some of the actors annoy me
And the pillaging of classic 80's sci fi and horror is a bit too obvious at times as well

Been watching the OA as well
The characters and situation in the present are far more interesting than the captivity narrative IMO
I like the idea but the constant focus on OA and her messianic persona gets a bit dreary at times
It would be better to get more of an idea of the scientists theories behind the practice and more focus on his internal viewpoint

Just saw this regarding Canada wanting to switch from oil sands production to Green tech

The "occupied" scenario is far more analogous to the Canada/US relationship than to the Norway/ EU/ Russia situation

Uproar as PM Trudeau calls for end to oil sand production
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called for Canada to phase out its oil sand production. It's not a popular message with the province of Alberta, which has benefited from having huge oil reserves.

Trudeau was responding to a question about his decision in late November to authorize an increase in the capacity of two oil pipelines in the country's west, which will increase Canada's export capacity by nearly a million barrels a day.

Alberta scrambles to restart oil sands operations after wildfire
Energy production in Canada's oil sands region will resume in the coming days after a massive wildfire halted production, Alberta's premier has said. Authorities are assessing the damage in Fort McMurray. (11.05.2016)
Canada approves controversial expansion of Trans Mountain oil pipeline
Canadian government introduces first national carbon price
"We can't shut down the oil sands tomorrow. We need to phase them out," Trudeau told a town-hall meeting in Peterborough, Ontario, on Friday. "We need to manage the transition off our dependence on fossil fuels."
Canada is the world's sixth-largest oil producer.
Outraged
His comments led to outrage on social media and criticism from Alberta politicians, with provincial premier Rachel Notley saying the oil sands were "not going anywhere any time soon."
The English-speaking province has a history of disagreements with the Francophone east of the country, where the Trudeau family are from. 
Alberta opposition leader Brian Jean said the oil and gas industry provides thousands of well-paid jobs.
"If Trudeau wants to shut it down he'll have to go through me and four million Albertans first," he said.
Jason Kenney, a former federal Conservative minister and leadership candidate for Alberta's provincial Conservative party, said the oil sands represent trillions of dollars of future wealth for Canadian families.
"That's our ability to pay for pensions, health care, and infrastructure and education. It also represents hundreds of thousands of good paying jobs for working, middle-income families," Kenney said.

Ecological concerns
Environmental activists are critical of projects involving oil sands because of their economic and environmental costs. Oil locked in the subsoil of the boreal forest must be extracted by a long, polluting and energy-intensive process.
The oil is profitable only when global prices are high. Two major oil companies, Shell and Statoil, pulled out of the Canadian oil sands late last year.
Trudeau is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to meet the requirements of the UN Paris Agreement on climate change. The prime minister last year announced a national carbon tax effective in 2018.

I'm watching DARK now, like a gErman version of Stranger Things

I like the cyclical time element to the story
And the moody landscape and interior shots

You mean the "creative" community??

Normal TV today is an endless stream of cheap crap reality programming and "safe" shows about property and food
With a few exceptions

Standards have been driven down dramatically

Netflix is filling the gap of demand for interesting challenging, Quality content

He looks a lot like Alex Turner, it would be great to edit a Nightcrawler/monkeys video
