I watched The Mandalorian, Star Trek Discovery and The Expanse all around the same time last year. The Expanse was hands down the best when comes to world building, character development, and plots. You know, all things that make a good sci-fi show. Mandalorian was a distant 3rd, really made for kids, I think, as it lacked any sophistication and was severely over-rated. Discovery was good, but relied too much, for awhile on alternate universe plotlines, which I grow tired of. Hopefully they will get even more away from that on the next season. Though season 4 of The Expanse was a bit slow, they picked up much better on season 5 as its best season. Sad to know this is the last one.
Jury still out on Foundation. It was my favorite scifi series of books in my youth, when I actually read books. I understand why they had to change a lot given the scope of Asimov's vision, but its been great so far.
past couple of nights: when i go to hit the sack, i see squid game running on my bedroom screen partner talking on the phone with a family member watching too my life = lot of content, not a lot of freed time
I liked the first season the most but they're all pretty great. Billy McBride (Billy Bob Thornton) has the best "aw shucks" smile as he tells people that he's about to ruin their worlds...unless they help him...
"Bosch" isn't quite as good in its final season. Harry Bosch is a bit preachy and his partner Jerry has become a plot afterthought. Titus Welliver will continue playing Bosch after this season but in a different series. I've read that he'll play an investigator on retainer for his former nemesis, the lawyer Honey Chandler.
"Chair" with Sandra Oh on Netflix is pretty good and funny so far (episode 3).
Netflix also has a great series in German, "How To Sell Drugs Online (Fast)." Very funny and fast-paced.
"Imposters" on Netflix is outstanding if improbable. A happily married young man discovers one day that he's flat broke and his wife has taken off on him. He soon discovers that others have suffered the same fate. The series lasted for only two seasons but probably ended at the right time. Lots of twists and laughs.
The first two seasons of "The Affair" (Amazon Prime) are superb but season three is turning into a soap opera with crises and character meltdowns that aren't really credible. The acting is brilliant, though.
Vera. Available on Britbox or free streaming on Acorn Channel. Each episode is 1.5 hours but it takes us two days to watch one because we have to continually rewind to try and decipher the Newcastle regional dialect. Extremely twisty plots, great for British mystery fans. Fantastic British country locations. They even offer Vera Tours of the areas where they film.
