Just finished Better Call Saul and Ozark. I enjoyed them both and will watch any future series. ( Ozark Season 2 is scheduled for mid 2018).

I'm undecided what to start next. It's between Stranger Things, Black Mirror and Peaky Blinders.

I can recommend all three I would watch Black Mirror next unless you don't like dystopian anthologies

If you enjoy Sci Fi there are two new shows that are very good Altered Carbon, a cyber punk nourish series with a Blade runner feel to it.
Also Counterpart, a parallel universe spy drama with the brilliant J D Simmons playing two roles.
The former is on Netflix so you can binge watch it....as I am at the moment.

Back in 2005 I got the F1 seasons from 1979 to 1995 on DVD from eBay (definitely not taped off the TV and illegally sold), and yesterday I finally finished watching them! Definitely recommended watching though.

Watched all of Derry Girls now.

Best British comedy I've seen in several years.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

I went with Stranger Things. A cross between The Goonies and the X-Files. It's well done and has kept me watching, but I may be a bit too old for all the teen angst stuff in it. I will probably do Peaky Blinders next.

Good choice.....I like Stranger Things because of the eighties setting and ironically the teenage angst.
When you get to my age you realise they were some of the best times of your life
