I've been watching a Netflix series called Trapped. It's an Icelandic series, set in a small village, a quaint portside town with a small police force of 3 officers. Things are set in motion when a mutilated body is found in the water. This coincides with a ferry from Denmark that arrives on the very same day. They are quarantined and can't leave until the investigation is cleared. To make matters worse, a big snowstorm occurs closing all roads and prevents any flying in, including some of the experts from coming in from Reyjavik to help on the case. The 3 police officers are soon overwhelmed with the events occurring in the village.

Writing is pretty solid on this series. Characters are pretty interesting and it's always entertaining. Going to highly recommend this one. Only wish more police dramas could be half this good.

Unfortunately, Netflix is very good at blocking proxy’s. They finally did it for the service I use (and the one before that). I’m not sure I want to start experimenting with others at this point.

Oh, I didn't realize it was only in Canada. See, when Netflix labels something as an Exclusive, there's no way of knowing wether it's an exclusive everywhere on the service. I really wish they'd show some distinction.

I don’t know if it’s exclusive, but I watched The Endless the other day. Without going into too much detail, it’s a story about two brothers going back to visit a cult they escaped from years before. It’s a pretty well done, lower budget sci-fi flick. Definitely worth checking out.
FWIW, The Endless is actually a sequel of sorts to an earlier movie, called Resolution.
Thanks for the push - I finally watched The Endless which I had been planning to for ages, really enjoyed it although it was nothing like what I had been expecting. After reading more about it, I decided to give Resolution a try too (had to get it on Amazon Prime). Just started it and looking forward to seeing how it plays out. This filmmaker team is really talented, and are both also really good, attractive actors. I hope they do more work acting as well as writing/directing.

I'm on episode 5, of Stranger things, and man this season fun. Season 2 was ok, Season 1 fun and new. This one is just great. You can tell their budget was increased. The interactions with each other, especially with lucas and steve are great, and the new girl (the little sister) is hilarious.

Really enjoying this show. I'm afraid to find out how many episodes are left.

Yeah this season is like one giant rollercoaster ride, the action sequences are fantastic and it's so funny. Pretty violent and gross, though, I'm surprised it doesn't have any warning at all.

Sad to report there are only 8 episodes. I'm hoping to wrap it up tonight.

Side note: I haven't seen it yet, but I keep thinking they should let David Harbour become Hellboy and fight the thingy lol.

Tore through "I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robertson" today and glad I did. It's sketch comedy and pretty damn funny. Tim excels at mining comedy out of awkward and steadily escalating situations, which is right up my alley. Another bonus is the absolutely brilliant performances by a ton of comedians including several SNL alums. Highly recommended.

I'm up to episode 8 on Umbrella Academy. I don't care much for Ellen Paige or Mary J. Bilgewater, but the rest of the cast is solid. I'm hoping they get the band back together for more superpower action.
