Matt Smith is charmingly roguish as Prince Philip and Vanessa Kirby has ascended the Hollywood ranks on the back of her turn as the flawed yet sympathetic Princess Margaret. Most impressive of all, arguably, is Claire Foy, who plays the Queen as a shy woman thrust unwillingly into the spotlight. Foy and the rest of the principal cast have now departed, with a crew of older actors — headed by Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies — taking over as the middle-aged Windsors for season three.
This drug trafficking caper spells out exactly what kind of series it is with an early scene in which two gangsters zip around a multi-level carpark on a motorbike firing a machine gun. Series one and two feature a mesmerising performance by Wagner Moura as Columbian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar, while season three focuses on the notorious Cali cartel.
But whatever happens, he has left us with a humane and riveting sitcom about an Ansari-proximate character looking for love and trying to establish himself professionally in contemporary New York. Against the edge-of-civilisation backdrop of the Florida Keys, Kyle Chandler plays the local detective and favourite son of a well-to-do family. You can almost smell the shoddy sanitation and horse-manure in this lavish murder-mystery set in 19th New York. Judd Apatow bring his signature gross-out comedy to the small screen.
Hipster LA provides the bustling setting. Who says reality TV has to be nasty and manipulative?
Production Notes from IMDbPro
This updating of the early s hit Queer Eye for the Straight Guy has five stereotype-challenging gay men sharing lifestyle tips and fashion advice with an engaging cast of All American schlubs the first two seasons are shot mostly in the state of Georgia. There are laughs — but serious moment too, such as when one of the crew refuses to enter a church because of the still unhealed scars of his strict Christian upbringing. A high-gloss revamping of the traditional TV food show.
Each episode profiles a high wattage international chef; across its three seasons, the series has featured gastronomic superstars from the US, Argentina, India and Korea. Netflix does Bladerunner with this sumptuous adaptation of the cult Richard Morgan novel. Enter rebel-turned-detective Takeshi Kovacs Joel Kinnaman , hired to find out who killed a since resurrected zillionaire industrialist while dealing with fallout from his own troubled past.
Every genre imaginable is parodied with the manic energy and zinging dialogue we have come to expect from Harmon. Ruth Wilder Brie is a down-on-her luck actor who, out of desperation, signs up a wrestling competition willed into being by Sam Sylvia podcast king Marc Maron. Deadpan animated satire about an idiot super spy with shaken and stirred mother issues. One of the most ambitious modern comedies, animated or otherwise, Archer tries on different varieties of humour for size and even occasionally tugs at the heart strings. Breaking Bad for those with short attention spans.

Ozark gets there in the first half hour as nebbish Chicago accountant Marty Byrde Jason Bateman agrees to serve as lieutenant for the Mexican mob in the hillbilly heartlands of Ozark, Missouri in return they thoughtfully spare his life. Bateman, usually seen in comedy roles, is a revelation as is Laura Linney as his nasty wife Wendy.
There is also a break-out performance by Julia Garner playing the scion of a local redneck crime family. A heavenly comedy with a twist. Eleanor Shellstrop Kristen Bell is a cynical schlub waved through the Pearly Gates by mistake after dying in a bizarre supermarket accident. There she must remain above the suspicions of seemingly well-meaning but disorganised angel Michael Ted Danson whilst also negotiating fractious relationships with do-gooder Chidi William Jackson Harper , spoiled princess Tahani former T4 presenter Jameela Jamil and ex-drug dealer Jason Manny Jacinto.
Netflix has been binning shows as if it is going out of fashion. But Unbelievable makes serious points about how sufferers of sexual assault are marginalised and victim-blamed while also drawing the viewer into a compelling mystery. Unflinching yet never gratuitous, it stars Toni Collette and Merritt Wever as hard-bitten detectives investigating a serial rapist. Time becomes a loop in this sci-fi parable about a troubled New Yorker who finds herself reliving the final hours of her life over and over.
Is the cosmos itself trying to tell her something?

Or is she simply losing her marbles. Natasha Lyonne excels as damaged, potty-mouthed Nadia. Her improbable love interest is played by Charlie Barnett. Umbrella Academy unfolds as a lightly unhinged anti-Avengers. Oscar-nominated Ava DuVernay makes a foray into television with a gripping four-part retelling of the Central Park Five case in which five African Americans were charged with the rape of a jogger in central Manhattan. This return to the world of the Jim Henson fantasy movie is very much a series of two halves. The first five episodes are a confused hodgepodge of exposition and world building.
But once it settles down this prequel to the film spins a fantastic tale of puppet Gelflings and Skeksis vying for power in a feudal kingdom… a game of thrones, as it were.
A rare TV horror that genuinely gets under the skin. Rather than lazy jump-scares, the series ratchets up the dread slowly yet unyieldingly. A few episodes in and you may find yourself holding your breath, so searing is the tension. To really freak you, Flanagan has also inserted dozens of hidden ghosts into the background. See how many you can spot — and good luck getting to sleep afterwards. Prairie Marling is an inter-dimensional wanderer with a strange past and an even weirder future. Controversially cancelled after just two seasons — and the mother of all cliff-hangers — the OA is nonetheless a sensory experience worth your time.
Did we mention the talking octopus?
David Attenborough provides the narration — but the real star is the stunning camerawork and general sumptuousness, courtesy of the team behind BBC mega-hits Blue Planet and Planet Earth. Shots of flamingos running across salt flats and blue whales chilling off the coast of Mexico are the perfect excuse to spring for a Netflix HD subscription.
Game of Thrones exited to the strains of a thousand damp squibs imploding at once. The setting is bog standard swords and sorcery — there are dragons, elves and magicians — but the execution is riveting. Ethnic tensions between elves and humans are compellingly drawn — and did we mention the dragons? A gothic adult cartoon based on an obscure video game does not sound enticing.
A third season is in production. Netflix has lately turned cancelling shows into a competitive sport. This new animated drama from the creators of BoJack Horseman was canned just two months after its debut despite much critical acclaim. Reality TV, the Netflix way. Ten artists test their glass blowing mastery in a series of challenges.

There was a metal stamp from imprinted on the blue whale and there were also traces of knife marks, indicating that the whales were skinned by hand.
