    I just watched Norsemen, which is not a Netflix original, but it's a Norwegian comedy about vikings and Netflix is the only place to stream it, so it might as well be!

    Good production values, and full of surprisingly funny, weird and dry Norwegian humor. Apparently every scene was shot in Norwegian first, then a second time in English. I don't know if this lends a particular air of "we just got done doing this scene" perfunctoriness to the acting, but if that's where the vibe came from, I loved it.

    Also, it's only six episodes long. And also, toward the end, a surprisingly good villain gets added to the mix:

    Just finished season one of Mindhunter. The first episode was so boring I almost stopped watching several times. I'm glad I didn't, the show ended up damn good. Last few episodes, man, I burned through them pretty hard. Can't wait for season two. All hail David Fincher.

    Watching through Punisher. Just got to episode 10. So tired of the Lewis subplot, I barely paid attention. But I feel like I probably missed a pretty good episode. Maybe I'll revisit later. At least Lewis is done now.

    Looks great, not sure why they have a white dude playing "Takeshi Kovacs" but hey I guess everybody gets to go through the whitewashing SJW meatgrinder a few times before they learn anything.

    I don't think there's a Amazon Originals thread (because there aren't many), but my wife and I started watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and it's really good. I was going to post the trailer but it gives away most of the first episode and I think you should go in blind.

    I don't think the blurb on amazon gives away too much detail:
    In 1958 New York, Midge Maisel's life is on track- husband, kids, and elegant Yom Kippur dinners in their Upper West Side apartment. But when her life takes a surprise turn, she has to quickly decide what else she's good at - and going from housewife to stand-up comic is a wild choice to everyone but her. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls).

    I'm finishing up Godless on Netflix... once I'm done I'll definitely watch at least an episode or two of that, it sounds promising.

    Godless is pretty decent, if you like westerns.
