Dark! It's a sci-fi German Netflix show - very underrated. The story is well done, and the casting is just on point. Dan Abramov agrees!

I tried watching it but unfortunately I couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll give it a try again.

I was the same way. you just have to push through and actually pay attention in the beginning and you'll be hooked.

I feel the same way about the newest season. I haven't had the time to commit to it yet but the first 2 or 3 episodes haven't really caught my interest. Hopefully when I try again it'll hook me.

I feel the same way about Season 3. It took a long time to build up in the beginning of the season, but it gets there.

I love it 🖤
A lot of times I feel like I understand nothing and I am totally lost but at the same time I feel everything is connected and somewhat makes sense. I guess my wife is tired of my "who is this girl/guy?"

I'm totally in love with Dark Triology. 🖤
This web series totally gives justice to Sci-fi genre.
Before watching, it's better if you have little knowledge in Physics and different theories related to time travel and paradoxes related to time travel.
There's another documentary film "The Fourth Kind". If you like movie on aliens.
This was the first movie, I felt like I'm watching an Alien based movie.

I have such a hard time watching sci-fi in German for some reason, it's preventing me from enjoying the show

Word of advice, put down your phone and close your laptop when watching this. Watching 70% of this is the same as watching 0% in terms of understanding 😃.

I would agree; you may need to write your own conspiracy board with pictures and lines, but it is a very engaging, nonstop show.

Agree with this! There was a time that I had to bring out paper and pen to sketch out the family tree, I was so confused. But I liked it.

Yes! I restarted it from Season 1 to better understand all of the connections. Not only has it been helpful to see all the things I missed, I’m enjoying the show a lot more because of it.

Then you'll get that the cat I always post pictures of is named Iroh! :D As a kitten, he would just still like a wise general and he had white tufts of fur behind his ears that made him look like an old man. He grew out of the white and his littermate grew into it, but oh well, the names stayed.

There's exactly one person in the area's vet hospital who gets the reference.

Haha! That's awesome. Iroh is probs my favorite character, but how do you pick just one in Avatar?!

And my wife is a vet, so she's now part of the vets-that-get-Avatar-references club. It's an elite group.

I felt bad at the end of June because Iroh went to the vet hospital and met that tech again. Ended up he only really needed fluids and was diagnosed with a stomach bug, not his old usual of surgeries and a week-long fever. So that was nice, just sucked we couldn't visit him to keep his spirits up while he was admitted.

We pull up to the hospital during his pickup time, and it was the vet tech that knew Avatar bringing him out. She was like "I was so hyped that there was another black cat named Iroh on the list for today and then it ended up being this poor little guy again." At least this was the first time since 2018, but he's got a ton of charisma so they all remember him still. They always say "We love you but we hope to never see you again"

You should follow up with "The Legend of Korra"

Funny thing, I got a dog about 2 and half months ago and her name is Cora. She's 7 years old, so came with the name. 😀

A friend of mine came by to visit, met Cora and starting talking about Legend of Korra which led to talk about Avatar, and I revealed I had yet to see it... after that chat, I had to see it. Luckily Netflix delivered the goods.

It starts to get a tad stale after the 10th+ rewatch :D Legend of Korra is different but good in its own way. Netflix is supposed to do a live action or something of the first series I think.

I recently watched “Upload”... which is pretty on-topic because it’s all about software and the tech industry.

It’s a show that Greg Daniels has been trying to make happen for a while and you can tell it’s a passion project. He’s one of the creators of King of the Hill and The Office, and also used to write for The Simpsons during the classic era.

It’s really warm, funny and authentic. I’m excited for season 2.

Well, one of the two people headlined as KotH creator. The other one is Mike Judge who did Silicon Valley. So it’s safe to say they both have a keen eye for tech satirization.

Besides the big name, Brooklyn 99, Stranger Things and Friends. If you are looking for something different, try out "Little fires everwhere", "For Life" or "The Good Place"

Supermarket Sweep dropped on Netflix, so I'm going to watching that for a while.

We've been watching the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on HBO go too. And Star Trek (currently, Deep Space Nine) is always a go-to.

I think we're between seasons (if we get new seasons) of the current TV atm.

I just read through the comments and sure Avatar, Dark and KungFury are all awesome shows. But why doesn't anyone mention Terrace House? Here's the setup:
"The show follows the lives of six strangers, three men and three women from different walks of life, who live under the same roof while getting to know and date each other."
It feels so real and the commentary is awesome. Btw it's all set up mainly in Japan so it's great if you're also a weeb, but it's totally non-weeb friendly. I recommend starting with the Opening New Doors season!

Old, I know, but Charmed. I started it because I love The Craft (1996 movie), and Charmed looked similar. Reminds me of The X-Files meets The Craft. Also, a Star Trek TNG re-watch. Current telly: Blindspot.

Definitely you should watch "The Last Dance" - its all about the amazing story of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls.

And then "Formula 1: Drive To Survive" This docuseries gives viewers exclusive, intimate access to the drivers, managers and team owners in Formula 1 live life in the fast lane -- both on and off the track.

The animation of Kimetsu no Yaiba is amazing. I couldn't wait for anime so I finished reading it's manga also. And I am watching black clover right now.

I would also suggest you to watch promise Neverland, It's one of the most amazing recent anime series.

Trying to switch to full-time 'Master Class' (watching Ron Finely teaches Gardening - and he is even more awesome than we already thought) - but of course we have to watch The Midnight Gospel - because, well: everything about it - but also Duncan's voice.

(also really do want to watch Upload...)

Recently watched Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist on Hulu. I was drawn in by the musical aspects of the show, but it was cool to see that the protagonist is a software developer and manages her own team. The show gives a cool view of the fictional software company while also showcasing awesome musical numbers by the entire cast with a heartfelt story at the forefront. Definitely recommend it!

I just finished Star Trek: Discovery and absolutely loved it. The storylines and cast kept me hooked the whole way through and I can't wait for the next season, which I hope we get soon! My plan now is to rewatch every Star Trek series though I'll probably focus on a few key TNG/Voyager eps first before delving into Picard. I'm also waiting for the new season of Wynonna Earp; I know the US is getting it at the end of this month but I hope the UK isn't far behind to avoid too many spoilers.
