I wouldn't put squid games in my top 5 so far but it's a good series in my book.
Will give Squid Games a go...
One thing I love about Korean drama is the surrealism. Was watching a French detective show (Astrid et Raphaëlle), and when they saw a ghost, there was always a reasonable explanation for it. How boring.
What we do in the shadows, season 3, does not disappoint. One of the best comedies I've seen in years!
Pretty good overall, when I usually cringe about Korean television, but, Squid Game is definitely, the Parasite, of the TV series world and deserves all the global popularity Netflix has afforded it.
I must admit, Billions season 6 in Feb 2022 is going to be a bit different, with the recent announcement that, Damian Lewis who plays Bobby Axelrod, won't be returning after the final episode (13) of season 5.
Now left with Chuck and Mr Prince to battle the series out.
Netflix has edited out the scene showing the phone number on the business card in squid game because some Korean guy is getting 4000 calls/day from strangers wanting the play the game, is killing his phone and battery
Mare of Easttown was OK. Too many characters (who all at some point are pointed to as possible suspects), too much personal messed up shit.
It echos Happy Valley -- also about a female police officer investigating murder/disappearances with a similar personal family background.
Great life-cum-survival tip:
Raise your CCP rating (aka so-called "social score") by resolutely watching the Party-state's latest and most correct historical revision drama, “the Battle at Lake Changjin”, in a party-patriotic cinema before ordered to do so by the leader of your work unit.

The pretty, smart, charming and hardworking young mother escapes from her wastrel boyfriend and tries to make a life for herself rejecting the charms of the good looking, rich and kind architect that has always had a thing for her.
Sounds awful but so far after 4 episodes - Very good
