Jack Ryan – Season 4

Shortened but engaging finale season for this show – thankfully the streamer allowed the conclusion in a short 6-episode season rather than the 3-season cancellation that’s become so commonplace in the content wars. Season 4 introduces Tom Clancy’s equivalent of

Jack Ryan – Season 3

This one was a do-over – we started it back when The Child was born but after about 4 episodes realised that neither of us had the brain power to follow wtf was happening or who all those people were.

The Last of Us

Really compelling post-apocalyptic zombie-esque nightmare that had us hooked & on the edge of our seats. I very much enjoyed the vibe of a zombie construct but explained to be caused by a fungal colonisation (leading to different rules), and

The Good Wife – all seasons

This one was a big undertaking: but a 7-season journey allowed for some sweeping plot arcs as well as some good episodic TV. Fabulous cast inhabiting some really strong characters in this: I’d actually watched a lot of the spinoff

Succession (Season 4)

Cute 10-part spy-thriller pushed at me by the Netflix algorithm. It was an engaging enough story, provided you were happy to ignore the UTTERLY RIDICULOUS central plot element once it moved into view. Fun and well-put together, provided you’re not

Dead to Me – Series 3

I’ll be brutally honest and say I don’t remember specifics on this one – it’s the ongoing story of a couple of women thrust into friendship through some death & treachery, with layers of secrets at work and some ludicrous
