I see Netflix has cancelled the Marvel shows "Iron Fist" and then "Luke Cage" this month. But also interest in the shows had been flagging , and their fate could mean trouble for Netflix's other main Marvel shows, "Daredevil" and "Jessica Jones."

Disney is set to terminate a contract with Netflix at the end of the year. As Disney prepares to enter the streaming war with its own Netflix competitor next year.

Hitlers circle of evil is excellent.

It is terrifying and heartbreaking to watch. I'd have to say this is one of the better documentary series on Netflix I have seen.
I dunno, I'd say I find it an uplifting comedy about 2 Scottish pensioners. Wouldn't call it heartbreaking or terrifying, didn't realise it was based on real events either.

A new TV series is coming soon in February to Netflix called The Umbrella Academy (action/fantasy) consists of 10 episodes.

The Umbrella Academy, a new superhero series soon to hit Netflix, is based on a comic book series of the same name by Gerard Way. It's about a dysfunctional family of superheroes who reunite after their adoptive father dies.

Stars Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton and Eden Cupid.

Recently finished watching Season 2 of The Punisher (13 episodes)

It was good slightly on a par with season one. It'll be hard to top Jon Bernthal who once again was excellent casting for this version of the character. The action picks up well after the end of the first season, and once again he's aggravated by the bad guys and the scrappy teen alike. Amy (Giorgia Whigham) has suddenly become Frank's responsibility, and that makes her a pain in the ass. And that's the season, though of course, there's a lot more to it than that. Starring Jon Bernthal, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Jason R. Moore, Floriana Lima and Giorgia Whigham.

Really hoping they keep some of the cast when the show finally does come back in some way when Disney snatches back up the license.

Dunno if anyone has posted this, but I watched a great film on Netflix called The boy who harnessed the wind the other day. It's about a family (and community) of subsistence farmers from Malawi whose lives are at the mercy of drought and the rains and the skill and ingenuity of a boy who comes up with a solution. Based on a true story, would highly really recommend.

Also, for anyone who likes historical fiction Knightfall is fairly good. Tempat Knights and all that.

It was really enjoyable. The bloke that was in Misfits and is in this plays the role really well. There have been a lot of documentaries on Netflix so quite nice having something that's a bit of fun to watch.

I think Gervais is a twat and that probably colours my impression of everything he does, but I really didn't like it.

Tonally all over the place, and not very funny.

The way the show just skips past that death (end of Ep.4) on the way to its nice, cockle-warming ending is something else.

I thoroughly enjoyed all 6 episodes of After Life, the casting was perfect and it had everything for enjoyable viewing, another classic from Gervais.

In all honesty i haven't seen After Life, I'm not really a big fan of Gervais he's in that sort of category of a dim bulb, all he does is laugh at his own jokes with that annoying hyena laugh.
