I know we have a last film you watched thread, but I've just rejoined Netflix.

I'm currently having to trawl through titles and searching them on IMDB for ratings.

Does anyone have any recommendation for crime/physcological/mystery films/tv show picks?

Not sure if true crime is your thing, but they've uploaded some incredible shows recently.

The Staircase, which is a story murder mystery of a death from 2003. Courtroom drama, well worth a watch.

Evil Genius, another incredible crime story involving a guy with a neck bomb collar robbing a bank for a group of people back in 2003.

Wild Wild Country, which charts the rise of a cult out of India, which moved to the USA and things get a bit nuts.

Those 3 are a good place to start.

American Vandal - 8 episode parody of true crime documentaries such as Making a Murderer. It's hilarious.

I'd also recommend Evil Genius. I watched it a few weeks ago, it's really gripping and also highlights how sadistic some people really are.

For great crime drama, Fargo and Hannibal are two of the more ambitious and entertaining TV shows of the last decade. Netflix has only series 1 and 2 of Hannibal but series 3 disappeared up its own fundament and isn't worth watching anyway. Fargo is on Netflix in its entirety.

Better Call Saul is just as good as the aforementioned, but someone has recommended that already.

I really liked London Spy. A lot of people didn't, but it may be worth giving a go if you like espionage shenanigans and don't mind sloth-like pacing. I also think Bates Motel is very underrated.

Most of the good true crime documentary series have been mentioned (or will be soon enough), so for that I'll recommend Wormwood, which seems to have flown under a lot of people's radars.

You didn't ask for animated comedy, but you could do a lot worse than Rick and Morty and Bojack Horseman, especially if your sense of humour is dark and a bit fucked up. If you like your comedy lighter, Brooklyn 99 and The Good Place are very enjoyable.

Dark and fucked up is definitely in my ball park.

Just finished watching the third season of Bloodline (Drama). About a close-knit family with lots of skeletons in the closet. Which i thought was a pretty decent series.

Was recently talks of Netflix fetching it back for a season 4?

Just had the pleasure of watching season one of Glow (Comedy) about 1980s women's wrestling. It's a smartly plotted series with some great characters that deepen in the course of the show.
Netflix has found a winner with this one........Starring Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin and Marc Maron.

Watched Wind River (2017) last night. Follows a wildlife officer and FBI agent as they investigate a murder on a Native American reservation. Written and directed by Taylor Sheridan who wrote Sicario and Hell or High Water so if you've seen those you'll know what kind of thing to expect. Good cast too and you get to see Elizabeth Olsen's bare bum.

Just finished Seven Seconds on Netflix whixh I thought was very good. Disappointed to read the show has been cancelled and there will be no second season.

Still worth a watch as the season does have a conclusion.

It’s about a young boy who’s death is covered up by New Jersey police with a detective and assistant prosecutor who try to find out the truth.
