    We liked S1 of Sweettooth. Then S2 came along and we were turned off instantly, not sure why. I think it'd been a better experience if we hadn't watched S1 and binged S1/S3 in one go.
    Loudermilk is at Netflix if you have a VPN that takes you to Germany. I was there on holiday and hence I found it...

    We just have Netflix at the moment... We are planning to get Amazon at some point as there are some series we really want to see.
    Surprisingly good was "Sweet Tooth": we started watching and just binge-watched it during our holiday. The premise is a bit odd, but the characters are nice, each of the 3 seasons is quite different (not rehashing the same story) and it has a closed ending. The series is calm: a lot happens, but it is not portrayed with too much action.

    Just started Loudermilk. Shorter episodes ~25 mins which I like.
    3 episodes in, I think it is hilarious. Seems to be a story with great humour.

    No, we did not watch Undercover...
    Yeah, most of those series get too many seasons grow worse... Same with Stranger Things. A shame Lockwood wasn't continued: it was nice, and my wife - who read the books - says there was ample material to continue with a nice series.
    We are still waiting for the next season of Hellbound: it was really good! What starts out as a simple series (people see a vision and get the date of their death, on that day monsters appear out of nowhere to take them) turns into a very surprising series regarding society and religion.

    We watched Supacell... And were a bit disappointed... A bit of Heroes and Umbrella Academy... but too much gang-stuff for me... There was a great French movie on Netflix about a drug and superpowers but I don't remember the title (maybe " How I became a superhero", but I'm not sure); it really did the normal people with superpowers very well.

    Also on our list... We were waiting for more reviews to surface.

    Something completely out there: one-punch man. It is an anime of a guy who trained to be the strongest, and he has reached the point where he defeats any enemy with one punch (and of course is bored by that). It makes a bit of fun of other anime, and is quite weird... But the short episodes are quite entertaining and the later ones really start with a captivating story.

    Eric. Great acting, nice story - the main character is not likeable as such, but you feel for him. I can understand the criticisms that claim they are bringing in too many social issues, but to me it did not deter.

    Baby reindeer. Amazing. Not easy but brilliant.

    Thanks. I believe there are just three books (not like a five part trilogy I'm afraid) so there'll just be a S2 I guess.

    Meanwhile, we're watching Undone (Amzamon). I was sceptical but I really like it. It is fresh. I can recommend halfway in E5.

    (there may be spoilers here)

    She says the first season more or less covers the first two books while taking a few liberties that are actually nicer and make more sense; as well as a few changes that are slightly weaker (and a few of which the impact is unclear: e.g. 3 wallfacers vs. 5 in the book).

    However, the whole storyline involving Will and the launch does not occur in the first two books - my wife says she has some idea of where it is going (extrapolating from the first two books). There some aspects of this storyline in the first two books, so she suspects this to be part of the third book.
