Raising Dion looks like it could be very good as long as it doesn't fall into never ending melodrama.

Does look like it has some potential, the CV's of the creator's though suggest it may just be a bit average. Seems like they specialise in standard US network TV-fare.

Also anything too bold and adventurous on Netflix doesn't last too long, e.g. The OA.

Also The Lives of Others is on there in HD.

We've watched the first two episodes of Criminal on Netflix. Standalone 45 minute episodes, wholly based in an interrogation room. First guest-starred David Tennant, second Hayley Atwell.

Pretty good.

Just finished Unbelievable on Netflix and can't recommend it enough. One of the best police dramas I've ever seen with a fantastically detailed view of the (true) investigation. The performances are flawless too.

I started watching the first episode and it put me off a bit. Some of the acting was poor and the plotline seemed a bit obvious. I had to stop the episode because of time.

Does it improve as it goes along? Worth sticking with?

Yes, it's incredibly gripping once the investigation begins. The main characters aren't introduced until episode 2.

Unbelievable is very impressive and highly frustrating, i found the acting throughout very good.

We did Unbelievable in a couple of days in my house. Really excellent drama that raised some very serious issues.

The new (and immediately cancelled) Swamp Thing series is now on Prime. Had pretty good reviews I believe.

Last season of Mr Robot is on Prime from tomorrow apparently. Must rewatch the last series as I literally can't remember anything about it!

Must get back to Me Robot I stopped watching mid season one. The episode where he took some drugs and hallucinated all episode, I really dislike that scenario and it seems so many shows tend to do an episode.

Watched the first episode of Raising Dion. The adults are all fine (always nice to see Jason Ritter get more work), but the title kid, jebus wept.

I can't tell you how happy I was when he got hit by that tree.

Here's a strange one. In the Tall Grass is on Amazon Prime complete with the Netflix logo when it starts.
