The English: The English  Season 1, Ep 0

Trailer. The Guardian says: The elevator pitch is: (Emily) Blunt’s Cornelia Locke, an English lady newly landed in America and looking for revenge, teams up with Chaske Spencer’s Eli Whipp, a just-retired cavalry scout and member of the Pawnee Nation who just wants to ride up north and claim a few acres of homestead. Obviously, it’s not going to be as easy as that, and, obviously, they’re going to fall in love along the way. But The English is so, so much better than any quick explanation of it is ever going to be. [more inside]

The Underground Railroad: full season.  Season 1, Ep 1

Amazon Prime says: "From Academy Award winner Barry Jenkins and based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Colson Whitehead, 'The Underground Railroad' is a new series that chronicles Cora Randall’s desperate bid for freedom in the Antebellum South. After escaping a Georgia plantation for the rumored Underground Railroad, Cora discovers no mere metaphor, but an actual railroad beneath the Southern soil." I've just watched the full ten episodes of this over a period of about two weeks. I found it very gripping, full of great casting and first-rate performances. The later episodes are stronger than the early ones in my view, but maybe that just reflects my increasing investment in the show as it went on. What did other MeFites make of it? [more inside]

NOS4A2

I thought the first episode was really good. It had made an oblique appearance here a year ago, but I didn't see that and so hadn't heard of it at all until I was looking for something to watch a couple hours before it started. Top production design, too. 10 episodes. [more inside]

The Great Beast That is the Global Economy

Wondering if anyone is watching this Amazon Prime documentary show. Hosted by the lovely and talented Kal Penn (Kumar of Harold and, former Obama admin advisor) and written by the author of The Big Short. Good range of topics from money laundering to our dependence on rubber, and a plethora of guest appearances in amusing skits. I would love to have the hive mind help me fangirl over the fun bits and grouse about questions that are raised but not satisfactorily addressed.
