That's a good one. Tom Hardy can do no wrong as far as I can see!

Title: Stranger Things
Genre: Supernatural thriller
Type: Series

The show is set in 1980s Indiana, where a young boy vanishes mysteriously, and a telekinetic girl appears, who helps the boy's friends in their attempt to find him.

I really liked this show a lot! Reminded me of '80's supernatural films from the likes of Amblin movies and early Stephen King. I'd give it 4/5.

I second the Stranger Things recommendation. I was raised in the 80s on a steady diet of horror and sci-fi movies (best decade for horror and sci-fi, if you ask me). Show definitely reminds me of movies like Poltergeist, ET, throw a little Critters in there, maybe some old Stephen King like IT or Tommyknockers, and this is what you get. Really great show, IMO.

Yeah started watching the Stranger Things...it is certainly a refreshing series,despite taking cues from the likes of King, Spielberg, John Carpenter and a bit of Silent Hill.

Brings me back in time to the sci-fi movies that I watched as a kid on the...wait for it...old Sci-Fi channel. Not to be confused with the crap that comes out of SyFy.

I'm currently playing Battlefield 1, Battlefield 4

Title: Black Mirror
Genre: Sci-Fi / Drama / Satire
Type: Series

Saw the recommendation for Stranger Things above and I loved that. Thought I'd add this in if it hasn't been mentioned before. Very original and entertaining series. Not very long although I believe they are making a 3rd season now.

The premise of the series is ultimately taking contemporary pop culture and deriving how these would evolve in the future. I don't want to spoil too much but it's a clever series and I highly recommend.

The Ropes

6 episode series that are only 20 minutes or so long. Each episode contains like 3 little stories.

It's about a night club's bouncers. Produced by Vin Diesel and his sister. There is isn't a lot there but it makes you want more. I'd like to see it revisited.
