My favourite films are Blade Runner and Once upon a Time in the West. I love science fiction, fantasy and spaghetti westerns. My favourite TV series are Firefly, The West Wing, Hannibal, Sleepy Hollow and Doctor Who. I am eagerly waiting for the next season of Sherlock. The last film I saw was Doctor Strange. I thought it was great! Have you seen it? :)

I watched Firefly and Sherlock in German on German Netflix before they blocked vpns. And Arrow. Sherlock was a bit challenging to keep up with last year, I could now but sadly Netflix uk only have them in English:( I love sci fi too. I watched Expanse in French.

I have only seen the first season so far. I am hoping to find the time to binge watch the second season during the Christmas break. :)

I've been watching Poldark in French, and Gilmore Girls in German, and a Spanish soap opera Reina del Sul in Spanish. I watched Daredevil in German. I have been watching Luke Cage in Spanish but its a bit boring. I watched Jessica Jones in French I think. And Orphan Black in Italian. And Shadowhunters in Swedish. I could go on. I rarely watch anything in English. Except Homeland, I watched that despite it not having other languages available, but it did have quite a bit of German in the last series. I like that they have more non English series these days. El Marginal is great, Roba was interesting, Wallander of course, Braquo, the french secret service one is hilarious - how does that seem to a French person?

Netflix has done so much for my listening skills! It is a great tool. But I need some Russian series on there...

I like Don Matteo Investigates and RAI's Nero Wolfe. I watch German Krimis from time to time and I started The Returned but have not found time to finish it. I do not have Netflix but thankfully YLE (Finnish Broadcasting Company) likes European television. Roba? You mean the Finnish series? :)

Yes the Finnish one. If only I'd had a duolingo course to do first that could have helped me understand Finnish. I watched The returned in German too, but I haven't seen the others. I would love to still have access to more German made programs but there isn't much on Netflix uk and I can no longer access the German site. Altes Geld is about the only one. I've watched the first episode but not the rest yet as I got distracted by something else.

If you are interested in Finnish television, try to track down a series called RAID. It is one of the best television series ever made. And I am being objective here. I cannot normally stand Finnish television series. I did not care for Roba either.

I think you and I would get along well. Those are some of my favorite movie directors as well.

I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan, so I've been watching that on HBO since Season 1.

Since GoT is currently in-between seasons, however, I've since found that the newest HBO series, Westworld, is extremely entertaining as well. I love deep, dark shows that make you think.

As far as Netflix goes, I have it but I rarely ever watch movies and shows on it. It seems to be a black hole that time sinks into, and I have to be careful with that because I already have enough delicious things to distract me (cough Duo! ahem! cough cough).

Then I keep getting asked about a 'Netflix and Phil' or something like that. I don't know who this 'Phil' is, but he seems pretty popular nowadays. The only Phil I watch though is Dr. Phil.

I love binge watching on Netflix, too! Right now I'm on season 5 of American Horror Story. What's your favorite season? I equally liked Murder House and Asylum. I've also seen Stranger Things and Daredevil. Since you like Marvel and DC, have you ever seen Young Justice or Jessica Jones?
