What's it about, Chewwy?

Grey, that's awful, albeit that there's a 'happy' ending :(

It's about a gay guy who goes back home as his Mum is dying, and how he deals with his family - predominately his father.  He's also having a bit of a life crisis as has split up with his long term partner, whom his father pretends to doesn't exist.  A black comedy, but not massive laughs if you know what I mean.  The main character was in Fargo - the 2nd series.  He's very good.

It's in the Underrated Film category on Netflix (or somesuch). :)

Cleverman .... intense.

*edit*

The only thing netflix says about this series is 'violent' < which is true. Wikipedia says this: 'The six-part drama series reimagines several stories of the Aboriginal Dreamtime in a modern, superheroic context, and reflects on racism, asylum seekers and border protection.' which makes things much more interesting.

Summertime on NOW telly.  Oh yes... a bit of subtitle's don't y'know.

It's set in 70's France and all about young feminist students starting out as activists.  Quite promising so far, and of course they're all gorgeous which helps.  :)

(turns out I'm watching quite a bit of telly on my week off :/  ...)

Room. 

Horrifying and beautiful at the same time.  And to think there are people (women I imagine) who have been trapped for years right now in our vicinity.  And we don't even know about 'em yet.

Call my agent: strong female characters, lesbian characters. Light and intelligent at the same time, only 6 episodes. French - subtitled.

Was just reading through this thread for ideas - thanks for this recommendation - we've just finished watching this series and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I'm finding The Killing (Danish) a bit of a slog…

I'm watching Mad Men, which looks utterly gorgeous (fashion), but has me furious at the hellish mysogyny and gender roles.

'Please like me' < Australian, really good characters, gay characters, older female characters. Have a feeling this isn't on U.K. Netflix.

^^^ it isn't

Just cried my way thru 'Holding the Man' instead - I seem to only watch gay Australian content these days.  :P
