STRANGER THINGS 2 Netflix, October 27
The first series of this show created the biggest word-ofmouth buzz since Making A Murderer. You dared not approach the water cooler unless you were carrying an opinion. Whether the homage to the ‘80s will work as well second time around remains to be seen, but we do know the action has moved on a year, and there’s a new evil force threatening the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana.
THE CROWN Netflix, December 8
The first season of this show made for such easy viewing that it made one put aside some of one’s misgivings about the British royal family. ‘Ah look, they’re almost like people.’ This time around, we’re up to the early 1960s as the winds of change begin to blow through society. Claire Foy is back in the lead role, while an interesting guest star is the excellent Michael C Hall (Six Feet Under, Dexter) as John F Kennedy.
