Re: Any suggestions for mini-series such as Ozark?

@AngelPuppy1 , see if you can find A Place to Call Home.  It is an Australian production.  I watched it on an android box but I think it available on some streaming services.  It is very good.  It is a bit like a mini scale Downton Abbey.  Not as grand, but similar in theme.   Here is part of the synopsis.  LM

 

Simply put, A Place to Call Home is one of the finest pieces of drama ever produced for Australian television. The series will be long remembered for its captivating narrative, outstanding performances and world class production values. Foxtel is proud to have been its home for the past four seasons and there is no doubt that it will be missed. A Place to Call Home was a series which was saved by its fans and so the journey of this, the final chapter, is a very important one. It was imperative for us that the series retain its integrity and that we would bring the series to a close at its natural story point and that is what everyone who loves the show can expect."

Yes, so good!  I guess when they must have questioned them, they had to make sure they could swim well and be able and willing to do other crazy things!  Not me, that's for sure! I enjoyed them all.  I thought Claudia was a wonderful host.  I miss these shows now that I have watched them all.  So entertaining!
