I thought 3 or 4 would have been enough !

"Unbelievable" is one of the best Netflix "originals" I've ever seen. Stay tuned for next year's Emmy awards.

I thought it was very good as well, some great performances from the 3 main leads and I'd be surprised if nominations don't appear in the award shows next season.

Tomorrow is my last day with Netflix for awhile. I'll check in here though to see what they're up to and what I want to binge on for a month "catch up" later on.

For me it's the juxtaposition of the state-of-the-art special effects and the rather crude and expressionless puppetry. Henson's Creature Shop was unbeatable for a very, very long time when it came to surreal and alien practical effects, and models/puppets that could emote. Sadly, they've been surpassed by CGI and I'm finding that the emotional impact, and as a result the empathy with their characters, just isn't there.

That's a good point .. it just looked like a high-end puppet show to me .. tough to get into .. have not gone back since watching the 1st episode .. and, I really did want to like it ..

Tell Me Who I Am is one of the most fascinating documentaries I've seen in a long time. A young man suffers a head injury in a motorcycle accident. When he awakens from a coma, the only person he knows is his twin brother. He has NO autobiographical memory for anything. I won't say more because anything further would be a spoiler.

Just watch it!
