Joe Turner a CIA coding analyst while outside with one of his co-worker taking a break gets an inch of his life by almost getting killed at the office. All his co-workers are dead and his has to outwit those responsible until he figures out who he can really trust.
Ok the series is based on the film Three days of the condor. But it is on today’s turf with the computers and cell phone well you get the point. Joe has created a computer program that helps identify terrorists prior to them committing violent acts. When his station is attacked Joe who is the only survivor will have to find out while on the run who is responsible and who he can trust. Maybe his program was used for something else something evil. Brendan Fraser who have not seen him for years here has returned in this series and what a great role he has. Also you will find a terrific cast like William Hurt, Bob Balaban and Mira Sorvino. But the thing is who is lying and who is not, who to trust. Yes there are twists and turn which it be expected. It is a bit formulaic and stylish but it works here for now. It can be addictive but there are a bunch of spy thriller Australian series and polish series that are on Netflix also. It looks like the network are going this direction.
Cast: Christopher Meloni, Ritchie Coster, Lili Mirojnick

You are going to be hooked right off the first episode. The series here is exceptionally smart and twisted and hilarious. It is a wild ride and it never stop until the end of the first season. Plus it is adapted from a comic book. It does not surprise me. There will be a second season.
The unit of Mista’arvim de Doron tracks a Hamas terrorist, responsible for several attacks, named Taufiq Khammed, also known as Abu Akhmed or “The Panther”.
Fauda is a brutal tale between Palestinian terrorists and Israeli authorities. The terrorist ringleader Abu Ahmad (Hisham Suliman) and special operative Doron (Lior Raz) who play the cat and mouse with a lots of twist and turns combine with action scenes.
Retired special forces operative Doron returns to work and hear that a target he needs to get is in town. Abu Ahmed, will try to go to his brother’s wedding.

Like i said there will be turns and twist plus the series and the ending as a cliff ending and yes there is a second season. It is a bit addicting and controversial where some of the viewers will not like this one. The director here used hand-held camera to film the action as well he does not let go the tension one bit although the series. The series will have a second season on Netflix.

Bob Lee Swagger, a highly-decorated veteran who is coaxed back into action to prevent a plot to kill the President. The series is done as a thriller conspiracy theory.
Now days they are doing series off the film. Ok fine but this time done a little differently I think. You know it is going to be predictable well like the instructor (Character in the series) tells Swagger “what they ask you to help them to figure out where the shooter is going to shoot the president and you didn’t see that one coming? “ exactly I saw that one coming as I watch the series. You damn well know that you have a sniper who is the best at his job, he is secluded for good reason and a man arrives at his home and said that they need for him to figure out if there were a shooter who is going to kill the president where who he take the shot. The thing is you know what is going to happen now you have a series kind of like the Fugitive. Swagger is now framed for the murder of a president and he is on the run.
Yes there are some shady characters in it and you do not who to trust. It is a fine series here but I wish they would make them less predictable I know not easy to do. The writing is fine and the actors has chemistry, and formidable. The series move along at the pace you want it to move no doubt and you are going to be addicted it is on Netflix In Europe. It is entertaining as hell.
Too funny I heard on the news that El Chapo escape from prison but way later he got caught again and escape from prison once again in Mexico where he was detain. And now Netflix has done a story about his life. The most dangerous drug dealer from the Cartel family and the one who can escape jail .
You see El Chapo want to rise in power as fast as possible and he is not a patient man. But unfortunately he gets shafted left and right at times. You see the Mexican government has to call the military to try to caught those drug dealers because sometimes the police is too corrupt and they need help. The first season is about El Chapo personal quest of becoming the most powerful drug dealer. You will find out that it is not easy to be a drug dealer seeing the life of El Chapo who sometimes gets in trouble and over his head. However there is a couple of people who want him behind bars. It is not going to be as good an Narcos but it will come close. You will be addicted to it, and wanting more. It is on Netflix streaming so have fun with it.

Cast: Lynda Carter, Lyle Waggoner, Tom Kratochvil
Assuming the secret identity of Yeoman Diana Prince (Carter), works for Major Steve Trevor (Waggoner) in Army Intelligence. But when trouble threatens, she goes into action with her great strength, bulletproof bracelets, and her magic lasso of truth. So spies, saboteurs, and schemers beware, because Wonder Woman is here.
I remember this series back in the days, I was in this family where this boy about 10 years old used to watch it religiously every week even the reruns. He could get enough of it. He might have a crush for Lynda Carter. Watching the show is I noticed the preponderance of female villains Wonder Woman battles, from the spy mistress Baroness Von Gunther to Fausta, the Nazi Wonder Woman, to the trainer of that Nazi gorilla. You even get Wonder Girl, Wonder Woman’s kid sister, played by Debra Winger. The show was female dominated here and for cause, nothing wrong with that it is a nice pace a change. Lynda Carter was doing her own stunts what they allow her to do, she also, has a double for the one that was more complicated and dangerous. Linda fits the role beautifully well. It is a fun series to watch, it brings back memories.
