If you can, watch The City in The City.
Four-part British production based on the sci-fi book of the same name.
Complex plot, gripping, gritty, political. Mix of thriller/whodunnit/intrigue.

I'm pretty sure I'm not going to watch The Purge, but they just ran an ad that for the first 20 seconds I thought was a real political ad.

Well, I'm going to be very honest - I loved every minute. :D

I avoided it for a long time because I'm contrarian, but Bojack Horseman is actually really good. Depressing as hell, but good.

Takes it half a season to get there, though.

Has anyone seen Runaways? It's a Marvel show, apparently unrelated to the MCU, about teenagers who find out that their parents are not what they had thought, and also they have superpowers. I saw the pilot, and it seemed OK, but I didn't keep watching.

I'm not sure if the all-cap tweet indicates excitement or hints that Death will be involved.

I am feeling confused and disoriented at Dr. Who for making me feel a twinge of sympathy for spiders. How dare!

It will be pretty awesome if it was supposed because of Death.

"The House of Paper" - is this a Spanish version of House of Cards?

No, I think the English title is Money Heist.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQYvQIrM1FY

I watched in Spanish, with Spanish subtitles, switching to German (subtitles) whenever necessary. I am/was/ want to be totally hooked. The Spanish they speak - omg so quick, so full of colloquial, such a pleasure, Until the very last minute of the very last episode, you do not know how it will end.
