Though I'd start  a thread looking at good series and movies on Netflix, SBS On Demand and ABC Iview (I don't have STAN........yet!)

Currently watching excellent Netflix doco...INSIDE THE MOSSAD.

Let us know about any good (and bad) shows you've watched or are watching.
I'll list a few I've seen recently a little later on.

The Good Place- unique concept, well executed. You need to stick with it a bit. Ted Danson is terrific.

Haha! I agree and I don’t really know why I put it on but gee the statistics they quote are pretty mind blowing. 97% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have had root canal surgery on the same side as the cancer? I’d never heard of any problems at all!

Watched 3 episodes of INSIDE THE MOSSAD so far and it's fascinating.
I'm a fan of espionage shows and a lot of the stuff they talk about you pick up from books and movies BUT the people this guy is interviewing are former heads of Mossad, Recruiters, Field Agents, etc..and some of their stories are harrowing.
As one former head said as he stood up from the chair.."I've told you way more than I intended!"

There is a fictional BBC series based on a le Carré novel- The Little Drummer Girl- on a similar theme. I've watched 3 episodes of the 6 part series. Not really grabbing me but it's been well-reviewed.

yeah..watched the first episode...i'm a keen reader and love spy stories but le Carre is one author I've never really liked..not sure why...style?
An outstanding TV  series is the french spy show THE BUREAU on SBS on Demand...4 series...all as good as each other...best to watch from series 1 but you could pick up any series and get the plot.

Haven't seen le Carre done well on film since Alec Guiness did Smiley. One of the great writers of the 20th C IMO, but a bit hit and miss because he's a bit of an obsessive, broody type. Sorry off topic.

That was a good watch. Who is the hero?

One that's been on for a while now is Jack Ryan. No name actors but a good show.  
Series 2 sometime this year, maybe.
I started with nothing and still have most of it left

Peter Strzok was the hero, he shut down the program in 2010.

Jack Ryan is on my list There have been a series 2 locked in this year Another 8 episodes.
