We almost tapped out after the 7th episode of season two.

We really enjoyed season one, but two didn't click. My household is not the target demographic, though, so I would caution anyone against making a decision based on our input.

I loved Season 2, but yeah....

Season 1 had the suspense of discovering the Upside-Down and just exactly what Eleven was. I missed that.

Season 2 lacked the chemistry of having Mike and El on the screen together. I missed that too.

Wynona Ryder can't stop being brilliant in both seasons.

Season 2 was really good, if just barely not quite as good as Season 1. My biggest complaint is I can't figure out why they included Max's arsehole step brother.

I am ok with starting this rumor because i am 99.9% sure it is legit.

Norm MacDonald Live is coming to Netflix!!!

He posted something about it on Reddit and David Spade leaked a video of Norms Netflix merch.The biggest indicator is that he removed all of his videos from his YouTube channel.
Norm MacDonald is the funniest human alive (since Joan Rivers died) and his stories about the cat, and the moth are simply brilliant. I can't wait for this show to get on a 'major network'.
100% confirmed. Norm MacDonald Has A Show
The ever-unpredictable and often hilarious MacDonald can now say he has his own show on Netflix. The streaming service announced MacDonald will star in Norm MacDonald Has a Show, which like his YouTube series, will feature the comedian interviewing one celebrity per episode. MacDonald's YouTube sidekick Adam Eget follows him to Netflix. In addition to interviews, the show will offer jokes and a look behind-the-scenes of MacDonald's life. MacDonald's fellow Netflix star David Letterman will serve on the show as “location scout.” The streamer has ordered ten episodes.

A solid "C". It had so much potential but the story was lacking.

It gets a high percentage on my Netflix but I haven't wanted to watch it yet.

I tried. I find the character, Jessica Jones, to be an unlikeable, bitchy whore with a self loathing, slightly gothy, bent. How the rest of the Defenders put up with her is beyond me.

One season (eight episodes), UK mystery, lots of twists and turns. We sat through the first five episodes non-stop. There have been a couple of flat spots, but all in all it is entertaining. I wouldn't call it Netflix gold, so far, but it is shiny silver.

Not sure if this one has been posted, but FAUDA. Season two just hit,not sure it can be as good as season one but even if it is half as good it will be great.

Just went back and read through this and it was not mentioned. If you like real life type tense spy action thrillers you well love Fauda. Israeli show about dealing with Hamas in the Palestinian settlements that I found thoroughly entertaining and highly recomend.
