@RR529 Also watched Blazing Transfer Students: Reborn (Netflix Original). Pretty zany live action sequel to a manga (you heard that right).

I have this on my queue. Now I have to watch it.

Granted, I've never read the manga that it's based on, but I believe the school principal (you'll get a kick out of him when you see him, I think) was supposed to be the protagonist of the original manga.

Good Morning Call season 2 (Netflix Original) - Loved the first season of this when it came out (one of my favorite shows of 2016), so I was stoked to see a season 2 pop up. It wasn't quite as enjoyable this season (though that may be because the novelty has worn off, as I've since watched other series in the same genre), but I still very much enjoyed it, and even teared up during the finale.

Fuller House season 3, part 2 (Netflix Original) - The Tanner-Fullers went to Japan! Granted, it was for only one episode, but it was great. Overall the show continues to be good fun if you're up for it's flavor of nostalgia tinged cheesiness.

A.I.C.O. Incarnation (Netflix original) - Sci-Fi anime set in a near future where a mysterious sentient bio-organic sludge (known as "Matter") threatens to overrun Japan, and then the world. Of course, being an anime, the key to the problem turns out to be a seemingly ordinary high school girl, and now an elite team of divers (people who venture into the contaminated zone to retrieve items/data) is tasked with escorting her to ground zero (a trek never before accomplished). It was a pretty decent watch, but nothing that really stood out. If you like sci-fi though it may be worth a look.

Altered Carbon (Netflix original) - Set in a future where death is a lot less permanent (our conciousness is backed up on a drive called a "Stack", and can be "Re-Sleeved" into another body... for a price), "terrorist" Takeshi Kovacks is re-sleeved into a new body after a 250 year sentance thanks to a wealthy eccentric who wants Takeshi to use his skills to solve his own murder. It's a pretty dark series, but really worth a watch. The special effects look really good for TV, and it invokes the aestetic of Blade Runner, the story has many twists, and I really liked the character of Poe.

If you like documentaries (I'm a huge nerd for them lol)

Rotten (about US/world food industries)
Wild Wild Country (about yogi cult/movement in the US in 1980's)
Making a Murderer (about a murder case in Wisconsin conviction)
Cooked (food documentary by famous food history/trend author Mike Pollan)
BBC Nature series, all great there are a few but the best IMHO would be Planet Earth II
Icarus (Russian doping in Olympics)
Hot Girls Wanted I and II (current porn industries trends)
Ken Burn's series, but the newest one and one of the best is the Vietnam (Vietnam War with interviews etc.)
Blackfish (about the marine mammal park ie SeaWorld industry)

I took a bit of a hiatus from Netflix, but I'm back!

GLOW season 2 (Netflix Original) - I quite enjoyed the first season, and season 2 was no different. If you like 80's and/or wrestling, check this series out.

Bill Nye the Science Guy

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

@ReaderRagfish Watched an episode, being Bill Nye fan as a kid in the 90's...not really a fan of this series. It seems more political than actual science to me. And that late 80's and 90's "Nickelodeon" feel to him is gone. Maybe I've just matured or his shtick is just cornier now. Maybe I didn't give it enough chance being turned off by the first episode but I didn't like it at all.

I did enjoy NDG-T's Cosmos, I wish he'd do more shows on NF.

@Lloiddd Wait, there's a new Bill Nye series?

(Looks it up)

Oh. That's awful.

@Lloiddd, I did hear recently that they're going to be doing a new season of Cosmos soon, so that should be good as I enjoyed the last one (of course, Netflix probably won't get it until at least a year after Fox/Nat-Geo are done airing it).

@ReaderRagfish Yeah there's one that came out last year...IDK if it's that bad (this is just my opinion) but it's definitely underwhelming compared to the old Bill Nye. I think the biggest problem is it's more political + a lot of his fans are in their 30's now and maybe his act has finally...really isn't what it was.

@RR529 that's awesome. I don't have cable anymore but use to consume anything with Kaku and NDGT on Discovery, Nat Geo.

This one I'm excited for...like a fantasy version of Futurama. lol

@Lloiddd I still find the old Bill Nye entertaining, but yeah, the new one is bad from what I just saw. It's mostly politics, and the "science" that it still has is of questionable legitimacy.

I’ll add Life After Beth to this list. Watched it the other day and it cracked me up.

The Crown season 2 (Netflix Original) - Not quite as good as season 1 IMO (I really enjoyed John Lithgow as Winston Churchill), but it's still an immaculately produced & interesting series.

Troy: Fall of a City (Netflix Original) - Sword & sandal miniseries that chronicles the fall of Troy with some light fantasy elements sprinkled in. It's not must watch, but if you like sword & sandal stuff it's worth a look.

On a side note, I just got a new smart TV for my own personal use, and provided it holds up (it's a budget set), I should be able to watch Netflix & the like more often (maybe even enough to follow 2 shows at once!). It's worked pretty great so far.
