        Good recommendation. It's different but I'm liking it.

          They could have done one on Bill Buckner who had the gaffe in the Red Sox World Series in I think 86. I don't think he had an easy time after that though, the Mass-holes would have been pretty hard on him everywhere he went.
          They are for the most part redemption stories though, and there was really no ending for the Buckner one

            The other thing is that they are largely unfamiliar to the vast majority of sports fans. Van de Velde, of course, golf fans remember hut I'd bet most people had no idea about his story. Some of them aren't losing/redemption stories as much as just interesting events (Torquay soccer team, for example). Surya Bonaly is before my time and/or got lost in the Tonya Harding fiasco. Others we're completely unfamiliar to me.

            Buckner's error is on another level - though I would suppose a heck of a lot of baseball fans of my vintage (born in '81) wouldn't know about it or even the Red Sox futility after the past 15 years.

            • Watched the first episode of "Umbrella Academy" yesterday. I think I'm in. Seems like an interesting "x-men" type premise.

                The acting of the 2 main characters, Rath and Ritter, is outstanding.

                • Just started The People vs OJ Simpson, seems okay so far, but the guy playing OJ is terrible whereas the other characters are very well done, especially Marcia Clark, Robert Shapiro, Robert Kardashian ....

                      Yes, but I am in the US, not sure about Canada.

                        Agreed and I'd put the Bruno character into that mix as well.

                          I should have mentioned him, his facial expressions were incredible. First rate acting.

                            I don't do Netflix but placed a hold at the RPL for the DVD set. Are there any other seasons? Thanks.

                            I surely remember the trial. Everyone at work was on the edge of their chairs for the verdict.

                              Thanks for the tip on Babylon Berlin. Just finished it and agree with you on the actors that were great in it.

                                Wasn't it Cuba Gooding Jr. as OJ, David Schwimmer (aka Ross from Friends) as Kardashain, John Travolta as Shapiro?
