    Two very good Netflix recommendations

    "The Five" - Twenty years after 5-year-old Jesse disappears near his home, his DNA turns up at the scene of a woman's murder, baffling his family and the police.

    "Safe" - After his teenage daughter goes missing, a widowed surgeon in an affluent neighborhood begins unearthing dark secrets about the people closest to him.

    Both are British thrillers created by one of my favorite authors, Harlan Coben. "Safe" just came out & stars Michael C. Hall. I highly recommend both.

    Thanks for the info. Being we got rid of cable, watch a lot of Netflix. Need something to watch till New episodes of The Ranch, and Shameless come out.

    I’m binging on “Safe” right now. Completely loving it! Especially the humor.

    F is for Family - while vulgar language is present - is highly comical. Comedian Bill Burr plays the leading role.

    Started "Safe" a few days ago, and I'm halfway through. Usually not a fan of British TV, but I really like it so far.

    Typical Harlan Coben. Lots of foreshadowing throughout. After I watched it until the end, I enjoyed the option to go back and watch parts where I was maybe not following along as closely and missed the cues.

    Peaky Blinders is everything I could ask for! Sonmas at myself for letting this sit in my queue for so long without getting to it.

    Harlan Coben, the man himself, makes an appearance in episode 9.

    Evil Genius was a very interesting documentary. I didn't even recall the story, I guess I was too busy partying back then.
