All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.

Been watching an odd little series on Youtube. It's made by Russian channel called ASM and it's basically an animated monster movie. Starts off as almost a parody, but later develops into a fairly good, if weird, kaiju (Japanese monsters like Godzilla) movie. It's called Godzilla vs. King Kong but really has no relationship to the classic Godzilla movie of that title or the upcoming American one other than having both Godzilla (multiple versions thereof) and King Kong.

I just discovered a show called Deutschland 83. It has been around a couple of years but I hadn't seen it. It is about a young East German soldier who is recruited to become a spy for the KGB by posing as a West German army officer who is the Aide to a high ranking German officer involved with the placing of American Pershing II nuclear missiles in West Germany at the height of the cold war.
It is an excellent series although if you don't like subtitles (German language) you may not like it.

Edit: And now, Deutschland '86. Excellent sequel.

I kept seeing previews for The Alienist Season 2, I'm not sure how I missed this one before, but I have just started Season 1.

Has anyone else watched it?

I watched the first season and I enjoyed it. I liked the main characters with all their flaws and the grittiness of the city scenes. I'm looking forward to the next season.

I’ve just started watching Hidden season two. It’s a crime drama filmed in North Wales not too far from where I grew up. It’s partly in Welsh (with subtitles) partly in English. I learned Welsh in school and I’m quite impressed at how many words I can still remember (but not enough to do away with the subtitles laughing6 )

I rushed through it thinking the second season had already started. Now I'm sitting here anxiously waiting for the next one to start. Boo.

I really liked it. It has a Ripper Street vibe and that one was great. It lost some of it ooph for a bit, but I enjoyed it.

I'm currently in a show limbo.

I've been watching Season Two of Dirty John. It focuses on a true life crime story. This season is about Betty Broderick who killed her ex-husband and his new wife. It's more of a dramatization than a documentary. It's my guilty trashy watch for now.

I haven't started it yet but The New Perry Mason is on my DVR. It's on HBO. I loved the original so I am hoping it is good.

I have just watched a two-part mini-series on All4 (UK) called Frozen Sky from Germany.
It is set in 1967 and concerns a woman who's 6 year old son has behavioural problems.
The family live on a hop farm in a small Bavarian village near Munich.
The story is of the Mother's struggle to get a proper diagnosis of her son's condition which everyone around her believe is due to his poor upbringing and pure naughtiness.
In fact, the boy is Autistic, a condition which was little known back then.
I thoroughly recommend it as a truly absorbing story.

They keep saying it will air in 2020 but nothing further has been announced. I hate it when they do that.

I watched Dracula on Netflix. It was an original three-part series. I watched the first episode and then forgot about it. I recently went back and finished it. The second and third episodes are better. It's a bit different than other adaptations. I enjoyed it

I liked Ripper Street too. I watched the first two seasons of Whitechapel when it was on Netflix. I just found it again in Amazon Prime and Hulu. I think I'll rewatch it. I can't remember much about it.

I completely forgot about this show. I'll have to check it out.

While waiting for my other shows to start I've been deciding between rewatching Hannibal (I never watched the last two episodes) or finishing Orange is The New Black.

I've just started Season 2 of The Order on Netflix.

The writing is not always the strongest and there are a few plot holes, but it's still good. I mean, enjoyed the first season enough to watch the second.
