    Started watching The Sinner season 2, thankfully a drama I naturally took to as opposed to forced to so to speak, made easier as I had invested time in season one, starring Jessica Beil, so you can understand the appeal, even if it was going to be a throw away drama.

    Episode one looks good. This season different set of characters, Carrie Cook, wow first time gonna see her since Leftovers and Bill Pullman the President who saved the world well first time round, with a suicide fighter plane bomber saving the Earth from alien takeover...

    Started watching the Innocent Man on Netflix.

    True crime fanatics who happen to have a Netflix subscription are never starved for options. Making a Murderer Season 1 really opened the floodgates and established Netflix as a force to be reckoned with in the true crime area. But for those hoping to scratch that very specific Making a Murderer itch, even Season 2 was found wanting in some respects. There just haven't been enough new developments with that particular case to warrant a whole new season. With that in mind, The Innocent Man may be the more satisfying follow-up to Making a Murderer. Just don't expect a series that breaks any new ground with the genre.

    Based on author John Grisham's 2006 nonfiction book The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town, this six-episode series focuses on two brutal murders that took place in the small town of Ada, Oklahoma, the first in 1982 and the second in 1984. The series was created by Ross M. Dinerstein and Clay Tweel, with Grisham himself serving as executive producer. He is also included among numerous interviewees who discuss the details of the case and the many questionable ways in which the criminal justice system was brought to bear against the four men convicted of those murders. Plenty of archival footage (police interrogations, TV news pieces, etc.) further flesh out the details of these two cases. As an added bit of visual punch, each episode includes dramatic reenactments of the murders and other key events surrounding them.

    The Innocent Man practically invites comparisons to Making a Murderer. It also revolves around a tight-knit rural community struck by a tragic murder case. It also focuses on several men who may have been wrongfully convicted of these crimes and railroaded by police more interested in putting bodies in cells than finding justice for the deceased and their families. It also provokes outrage on behalf of both the victims and those locked behind bars.

    It's not an original formula, but it's one that still holds a powerful appeal. The series manages to tell a clear, detailed story despite juggling a pretty large cast of players and focusing on two separate murders that are linked only by geography. It helps that the series is structured efficiently and cleverly. Early on, the focus is on exploring the details behind the 1982 murder of Debra Sue Carter and the 1984 murder of Denice Haraway. From there, the suspects are introduced and the series begins the explore the convoluted and increasingly flimsy case the state of Oklahoma built against the four men convicted for these crimes. Most episodes tend to end on a cliffhanger of sorts, introducing a pivotal new player or alluding to a dramatic turn of events that will play out in the following installment.

    The reenactment scenes add an extra bit of punch to the narrative. Too much of that sort of thing can seem tacky or exploitative, but these brief scenes tend to serve more as punctuation marks and visual aids than anything else.

    The Innocent Man is a series that takes full advantage of the Netflix binge model, keeping the viewer invested in these sad stories without going out of its way to sensationalize the events. Unlike Making a Murderer, which tends to emphasize the accused and their families over the families of the victim (sort of a necessity given the reluctance of the Halbach family to participate in that documentary), The Innocent Man shows as much regard for the grieving survivors as it does the men fighting for their freedom and the investigators trying to right judicial wrongs. And at a streamlined six episodes, it's the rare Netflix show that doesn't stick around long enough to wear out its welcome.

    There are areas where the series tends to gloss over key details and portions of the case. The one thing the two murders have in common apart from geography is the fact that the police convicted suspects based partly on said suspects' dreams. The fact that prosecutors built their cases based so heavily on the notion that these men supposedly dreamed about key details from the crime scenes is... pretty wild. And it's a little perplexing the documentary doesn't delve deeper into that aspect of the case and the fact that dreams apparently count as evidence in the state of Oklahoma.

    In general, it would have been nice to see more focus on the prosecutors and their legal misdeeds. The series effectively picks apart the flimsy evidence used in court and the various miscarriages of justice that contributed to the guilty verdicts, such as exculpatory evidence being withheld. But while individual interviewees throw out accusations of corruption, the series never really digs into the question of whether the police and prosecutors were merely incompetent and careless or actively colluding to frame innocent men.

    All told, this series succeeds in working with a proven true crime formula. That doesn't necessarily prevent The Innocent Man from ending on a somewhat anticlimactic and unfulfilling note. Granted, there's no point in trying to force a happy ending in a story where none really exists. But watching the final episode wrap, it's hard not to wonder what Dinerstein, Tweel, and Grisham were hoping to accomplish with this project. Is it to bring new attention to a blatant example of legal injustice? If so, the fact that the series exists in the shadow of Making a Murderer makes that seem an unlikely prospect. Can this documentary do more for these cases than Grisham's original book did 12 years ago? What kind of reparations are even possible when the series makes it abundantly clear the damage has already been done for many of the accused? By settling for being a good but somewhat formulaic true-crime documentary and not an ambitious one, The Innocent Man ultimately does itself a

    The Innocent Man is a solid option for any true-crime lover looking for a new series to binge. It closely follows the example of Making a Murderer in most respects, examining how both miscarriages of justice wrong both the families of murder victims and the people wrongfully accused of those murders. It tells a fairly familiar but still effective story. However, it's one that struggles to establish a larger purpose in the end.

    If you guys liked Paradise PD, you should watch Brickleberry which imo is a whole lot funnier, it's from the same creator with a lot of the same cast. Even many of the characters have a lot things in common.

    Incredible show, during its prime it was arguably even more popular then GOT. Syed is one of my favourite spy characters ever, I believe that was his background; imagine him as bond evangeline lilly is my all time favourite TV actress, was so happy when she got the breakthrough in movies to with the hobbit and ant-man. Let me know what you think of it once completed but overall I would say it is my fav show ever based on how invested I was in the characters

    Peaky Blinders
    Narcos Mexico
    Fargo

    Apart from them , there are obvious ones like Better Call Saul , Brooklyn nine nine , The Haunting of Hill House , Jessica Jones , Daredevil , The end of the effin World etc but I'm sure you have already seen them before.

    Saw all the episodes of Selection day in 1 go yesterday night. It was good in my opinion. Boarding scenes were pretty good to watch.

    Both the boys had great cricketing technique. Their father was such a dictator and so arrogant.

    That Gurgaon actor (forgetting his name) was pretty good in his part.

    I like all the characters - to me (in my mind) that is what real India is like and not the superficial made-up ones in Bollywood movies

    I agree with you and that's why these series are fascinating to watch unlike other daily sops who only show either heroes or villains. In these series, a character is allowed to have grey shades.

    There are also some fascinating shows on Amazon prime. After seeing such realistic shows on OTT platforms, who wants and have time to watch TV?

    Finished watching Altered Carbon a couple of days ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I recommend it despite the nudity, its still a banger show. Joel Kinnaman was exceptional, the story was brilliant, the support characters were tremendous and brought a lot to the story and finally the whole world and design is beautiful. Unfortunately 10 episodes isn't enough but brilliant nonetheless.

    Have not seen this but I know Mobeen is a funny guy and top fella, very popular in my city he's from the same area as Moeen Ali. Down to earth and always tries to help everyone in the inner city. Recently he saved a kids who was being attacked in small heath park. Will give it a watch at some point, I have Netflix now Will be watching The Night Comes for Us today, make sure you check it out as well I have been meaning to for a while heard it's amazing if you're into action oriented horror/thriller/crime.

    Anyone watched Punisher second season? I found it underwhelming compared to the first one.

    Recently finished Dark, absolutely fascinating, a must watch for Sci-fi fans.

    Ozark is another underrated gem, I basically watch anything with Jason Bateman in it lol.

    "You" is the best among the new lot.

    Castlevania on Netflix is absolutely outstanding, easily the greatest video game adaptation of all time. Adi Shankar is a genius, when you have the right people running these projects then they are bound to be really really good. 10/10 , can't wait for Season 3

    Finished Stranger Things Season 1 and 2, very good series, mostly the acting and editing was what made it incredible to watch. I'd recommend it if you like Stephen King books and into psychological horror.

    Personally didn't really like Haunting of Hill House, concept seemed quite clich to me, and there were very sudden events that just didn't make sense or interest me because the build up was poor.

    If anyone's got any suggests for Sci-fi or horror series like those, I'd like to hear about them.

    Which order would you recommend watching the marvel series?

    I have already watched Luke Cage 1 & 2, Iron Fist 1 & 2, DareDevil 1 & 2.

    About to watch DareDevil 3 but was told to watch Punisher 1 and Defenders 1 before doing so.

    Not exactly of the same genre you are looking for but come under the broader horror territory.

    Penny Dreadful: Dracula, Witches, Werewolf, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray, all the classic monsters under the same roof with one of the most aesthetically pleasing Victorian backdrops I have ever seen coupled with some jaw dropping performances from Eva Green, Josh Hartnett and Rory Kinnear.

    The Strain: Based on the graphic novel from the master director Del Toro, will keep you glued to your TV.

    The Originals: A spin off of Vampire Diaries but don't hold that against it, more sinister, adult oriented and much much darker than usual CW shows.

    Castle Rock: If you are a Stephen King fan and enjoy slow burn then this is the show for you, don't expect gore or jump scares, give it time and it's eerie atmosphere will grow on you. Available on Hulu.

    The Terror: We have all known fears at some point or the other but fear of the unknown is the greatest of them all. What happens when you are not only fighting your inner demons but also battling hunger, isolation and a primordial entity that your mind can't comprehend? An underrated gem of a series, based on a fictionalized account of John Franklin's Arctic expedition.

    Nice one mate, I will avoid Castle Rock for now as I am already reading a number of King books so once completed will give that a look.

    Penny Dreadful is something I need to check out that is right up my street.

    Out of the lot, the only option available on Netflix is The Originals although it puts me off due to the Vampire Diaries.

    Penny Dreadful is sublime bro, an absolute masterpiece, hopefully will get it's due credit in future much like The Shining and Twin Peaks.

    You could give the originals a try mate, not a stinking teenage melodrama like TVD and much better than the overrated True Blood dare I say.

    I saw bits and bobs of TVD but didn't enjoy it, saw True Blood for a season or 2 and thought it was decent but didn't watch beyond that. There's Van Helsing TV Series on Netflix, you checked that out?

    Sky over here have the rights to Penny Dreadful at the moment but I imagine it will end up on other platforms eventually

    Watch Grimm on Netflix. It grows on you and a much better show compared to TVD and it's spin offs.
