Ozark Season 4 The final season of #Ozark (Season 4 - Part 1) is finally out on #Netflix . The Byrde family continues to struggle with a way out of the money laundering business. Their son has a more prominent role this year - and not to worry, Ruthie is back and in the middle of it all. At times a friend to the Byrdes, at times a foe. No spoilers here - but let's just say that Part 2 cannot get here soon enough. Reportedly, Part 2 will have another 7 episodes is set to drop on April...

Squid Game I can't believe nobody's posted about this series yet! Another great international hit from #netflix (via South Korea). When Squid Game first came out, it kept haunting the top of my Netflix page with its eerie music and mysterious red-suited minions. I resisted watching it, because "don't tell me what to do." However, once our teens finished it and said it was a must-watch, I had to see what it was about. We binged it pretty quickly, which is easy to do since each...

LuLaRich This is a four-part documentary series on #netflix examining the multi-level marketing (MLM) clothing company #LuLaRoe . Admittedly, I love these series/movies that expose scams. LuLaRoe is the brain child of husband and wife team DeAnne and Mark Stidham. They go from selling maxi dresses out of a trunk to building a multi-million dollar empire based on a pyramid scheme. LuLaRich - Official Trailer | Prime Video Over the course of the documentary, viewers are introduced to...

Outer Banks Season 2 Outer Banks Season 2 on #netflix involves a bit of old and new. Sarah's family is front in center in the epic battle between the Pogues (poor teens) and Kooks (rich and entitled teens). The gold bars found and then stolen from John B. and the Pogues during Season 1 are back up for grabs along with a new treasure with ties to another Pogue. (No spoilers here). The Pogues travel from the Outer Banks to the Bahamas to Charleston, SC seeking what is rightfully theirs...

Cat People When I started watching #catpeople on #Netflix , I thought it would be a series on crazy cat people - full of humor and fun and not to be taken seriously. Well, there is definitely humor but it's not an expose on crazy cat people. Instead, each episode focuses on a unique cat enterprise or family. Cat People | Official Trailer | Netflix Even for non cat lovers, it is interesting. How can you not continue watching an entire episode about a cat rapper? Is he crazy?

Sophie: A Murder in West Cork This is a documentary/true crime mini series about a woman from France who is murdered in West Cork, Ireland on #Netflix . Interestingly, the investigation spans decades but only three episodes. No spoiler here, but I am not convinced that the accused murder is guilty. I think there is more to unravel back in France! Be interested to hear what others think. Sophie: A Murder in West Cork | Official Trailer | Netflix #sophieamurderinwestcork

Outer Banks Season 2 Premier July 30 During the early pandemic last year, Outer Banks (teen drama) was huge on #Netflix . Now that Season 2 is coming in July - every teenage girl is gearing up. Finally, we will know what happened to John B and Sarah when they made their exit by boat. Did they get to the Bahamas? Did they ditch and turn back? Did they stumble upon another treasure hunt? Outer Banks 2 | Official Teaser | Netflix What do you think happened? "go Pogues" ...

Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath I was really pleased to see this award winning docuseries Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath made available on #netflix . I watched on A&E originally. Hosted by actress Leah Remini and Mike Rinder, who both grew up in Scientology, this series examines the culture, relationships, and legalities of Scientology. Most episodes have guests who are former members of Scientology. Their stories are pretty unbelievable and you feel good...

Halston - anyone watching this one? OK, I'm always all in for anything with Ewan McGregor, but not sure if I should invest in finishing this limited series. It seems to be very fixated on his relationships rather than the interesting story of his licensing deals run amok or his impact on American fashion. I'm three episodes in, with two to go, and ambivalent about finishing it. That should say something, since I should be the direct target for this show (fashion obsessed, history...

Startup If you like technology, intrigue and lots of twists and turns, you will enjoy this series on #netflix . While the series revolves around a tech startup (yes, you will be exposed to crypto and dark web), it's more a story about what you are willing to do to get what you want whether it is wealth, to change your environment, or to do something you really feel strongly about. Set primarily in Miami, the three main characters come from radically different backgrounds which is why...

Anyone watch subtitled stuff? Call My Agent is awesome. This one is on Netflix, in French with subtitles (I never watch the dubbed version, that's gross). It's funny, it's dramatic, it's a study of characters you come to love...even the ones you hate. You have to watch at least past the first 3 episodes to really understand the dynamics, but then it's completely addicting. There are guest appearances from French superstars, some you'll recognize (Isabelle Adjani) and some you won't...

The Keepers This is a documentary mini-series focused on a cold case involving the 1969 murder of Sister Catherine (Cathy) Cesnik, a nun in Baltimore, MD. I like a good cold case story - but watching the preview, I knew this might be difficult to watch for a variety of reasons. I would rather not think such things happen in the United States. That said, the documentary is really good and based on the research and investigation by two of her former students who refused to give up on...

Mad Men or Peaky Blinders? I'm getting to the end of my American Horror Story binge, and lining up my next one. I've had people recommend both Mad Men and Peaky Blinders to me...what say you? #convinceme #madmen #peakyblinders #netflix

The Crown The Crown is about the British Monarchy. I knew it was getting a lot of buzz when it first came out but I really didn't think this was going to be of interest to me. Typically, I look to binge a good mystery or thriller. Then I happened to sit down and watch the documentary about Queen Elizabeth and her sister Princess Margaret. It made me want to go back and learn a bit more about the Queen when she was younger so I decided to give The Crown a try. Honestly, even though I knew...
