I don't even like Chess, terrible at it, and Gambit isn't that good, really, but it's like a car crash with blood on the windshield; difficult to look away.

Space Force, silliness ensues, sometimes in the right amount. John Malkovich being John Malkovich.

Looking forward to Mank, Enola, and Umbrella.

Prime is now what drove me away from Netflix a few years ago. Like Cable TV, so much content, so little to watch.

True story of Eli Cohen, first Israeli spy to infiltrate into Syria, late 50s-early-mid 60s time frame. Of those you mentioned, Mank, worthy, Umbrella, worthy. Don't know of this Enola. Might I also recommend Alias Grace? Nice period drama, 1850s, true story.

Loved Queen's Gambit.

But not so many as to justify a year subscription.

Worthwhile period piece or just a 'bodice ripper'?

Between the shipping and the video's it's a good deal.

Pt. 1, minus the humour.

Even the costume jewelry looks chintzy.

My wife liked it and I appreciated it a bit after three episodes, but there has to be 75 other and better series to watch first.

be mildly entertained while the rest of your budget gets delivered for free. Pretty ingenious.

I found some of the near apprehensions causing me apprehension. Well, done.

Not a big Borat fan but let's not forget he was nominated of an Oskie already.

 

Yup, tho the ending is openly hinted at in the beginning , posted on January 5, 2021 at 21:33:21

I'm now contemplating letting NF go. I have watched so much Prime that I find NF fare unenticing. Prime is mostly mediocre but at least I am not bombarded by unending social engineering from every NF release.

After Queen's Gambit, there's as little on Netflix as Prime but without the free shipping.

Now I'm all for keeping certain flags out of the Capitol, but I was a little nonplussed when after a few minutes watching Bridgerton, it turned out to be, not a Bodice Ripper, but a "Dark" Comedy.
