    I watch HBO and BBC more, but from the Netflix series I watched The Witcher yesterday. Everyone looked a year ago, but I just got ready.

    My wife turned me on to a pretty good show that's available on Netflix called "The Repair Shop." It's a British show where people bring in old and damaged items with sentimental value and the Repair Shop experts fix them up as close to "like new" as they can. There's a pretty wide range of things that come in and it's interesting to see the restoration process. Definitely a feel-good kind of show. I think anyone who is interested in any kind of 'making' will find it interesting.

    Queens Gambit has been pretty good so far. Teenage girl who's a chess prodigy and an orphan.

    Binged it in 3 nights. Excellent, 5/5 stars. Premise sounds boring as hell, but itís very very good. Recommended.

    Yes, read the book years ago and loved it. The show is just as good. (The same author also wrote The Hustler, The Color of Money, and The Man Who Fell To Earth.)

    Queens Gambit is really good. 6 of 7 episodes in the books.

    Agree with the takes above. Get past the premise of the show. Itís outstanding.

    Anya Taylor-Joy really killed it. Easy on the eyes too.

    'Oktoberfest Beer and Blood'

    Probably the best series ever made. Ok, maybe not really but it's like Peaky Blinders, Deadwood, beerfest and GOT all rolled into one kinda cheesy series. It is worth your time. Dubbed, and lots of German authenticity.

    In that case, I am glad that I still have 3 seasons of Wentworth to watch.

    You totally had me going.

    I am 2 episodes into Queens Gambit. I'm enjoying it, but a little part of me is surprised it's not more awesome given all the people everywhere going apeshit over it.

    I don't chess much these days but the acting around the chess bugs me. A big moment of shock when a piece gets taken as if these amazing players had no idea that might happen.

    But yeah, better than its genre.

    Aunty Donna is pretty hilarious. Along the same lines of Tim Robinson's I Think You Should Leave Now.
