Im currently LOVING "Homelands".

Set in America and Beirut.
Female lead plus older guy lead.
LONG - lots of episodes so I can totally binge/fall asleep watching it.
Plot - US Marine is held captive for years, comes home to loving (attractive) wife who was shacked up with his best mate whilst away. It turns out he's a potential terrorist and has turned to the other side.

Watch it - its GOOD!

Thanks Vanessa, must give this a go.
Ed has just finished watching Ozark, it is getting rave reviews but much too dark for me. I didn't like Breaking Bad and this is apparently worse....

Intelligence is a series we have just watched the first two episodes we weren't sure if we wanted to continue but did & glad of it, an eye opener to a world we only hear about no seen violence but it is there. Get past the first two & it's rather gripping. Death in Paradise is also good, quite funny at times

I'm loving Tyrant at the moment. There's some violence but what you might expect from a Middle Eastern dictatorship.

Is there anything non-American, non-violent and non-murder/mystery on Netflix? I am sick to death of this type of programme, as well as all the mind-numbing cooking and real estate/makeover series currently rammed down our throats on TV. And I can't see it getting any better in the near future.

I like good British humour, period stories, hospital/medical tales, natural history/animal stories. Australia has made some wonderful films and TV series but we only get to see them very rarely these days.

No Way, J1. Nothing on earth would induce me to pay Sky's exhorbitant fees! As I understand it, they have various 'packages' and to get what I want I would have to take the basic Sky, which doesn't appeal, and at least a couple of other add-ons along with all the crap the add-ons have. No thanks.

I knew that would be your response Lorna grinning smiley But I thought if I listed all the programmes, someone signed up to Netflix might check whether any/some/all of them are available through that.

Lorna, we have Netflix and there is a good range of British comedy and drama.

Absolutely loved "The Crown" which is a series telling the story of Queen Elizabeth II starting at the time of her wedding to Phillip. Written by Peter Morgan who is pedantic about getting facts right. Season 2 starts in December smiling smiley

Lots of good British comedy. "Come Fly With Me" is from the creator of Little Britain so requires a very warped sense of humour, which I am guilty of! Enjoyed "Still Game" which is about two 60 year old Glaswegians and the antics they get up to (a bit like Only Fools and Horses). "Getting On" is another worth watching - about a bunch of old patients in a British hospital. Also classics like Flowery Twats (Fawlty Towers smiling smiley ).

A lot of popular drama too that you may have missed the first time; Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife, Death in Paradise....

You will definitely find something that appeals!

Thank you Lynette. I'll look into it further. A brief look yesterday tells me I also need to subscribe to something that will 'unlock' all these programmes as we live in a part of the world where they are not readily available on Netflix. Is that correct?
Re: Latest Netflix FAV
September 11, 2017 09:27AM
Hmmm - be wary. We haven't paid to unlock programmes so am unsure where that comes from??
Re: Latest Netflix FAV

Ok, Thank you Lynette. I must have been looking at the wrong Netflix web-page. It had NZ in the title so thought it was the right one. I'll check again.

We have just finished watching Death in Paradise, found it really good, light & funny.
