Resolution No 1: finally watch my series highlights from 2017. The weather forecast looks grey and cold, so sounds like a perfect plan for this weekend.
Stranger Things II
I cannot put into words the sadness i felt after the first season ended. One year waiting period until the second season? Unthinkable! Somehow i pulled through - and binge watched the second season within a few days. Season 3 - Netflix, make it happen, please!
Even the Undertaker would bow in respect in front of the glorious ladies from «Glow». Which is actually what «Glow» stands for: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Whoever wrote this story must have been high or got glassed one too many times. But the result is fantastic and the great cast and its authentic Eighties sets it miles apart from cheap mud wrestling.
The Handmaid's Tale
The book by Margret Atwood has been on my top-10-forever list, well, forever. And while the namesake film was utter crap - sorry, there are no other words -, the TV series is amazing. It's so good that i'm even waiting of the second season of «The Handmaid's Tale» - the sequel the book never had. But Hulu will make it happen.
Do you figure out the culprit within the first few minutes of every thriller you watch? Can you recite the dialogue of «Dexter» in your sleep? Then i have something for you: «Mindhunter». The series for all the psychological profilers amongst you.
Blue Planet II
16 years after the BBC left a long-lasting impression with «The Blue Planet», it follows up with even more impressive footage of the oceans. The perfect series for parttime-biologists, friends of epic nature , Hans-Zimmer-Fans (he is responsible for the soundtrack) and all, who have had enough of psychopaths, weapons- and wafer-fetishists.
Twin Peaks: The Return
Get comfortable with a large cherry pie, watch season 1&2 and then top it off with the third - allegedly final - season. Enjoy!
Don't worry, «American Gods» isn't about Trump and his entourage. In «American Gods» the Gods of classic mythology and folklore have been transported to America as part of the cultures and religions of the various immigrants and create, as you might expect from Gods, lots of drama. Lots and lots of drama. Sorry, i cannot explain it better. Just watch it. It's good for you.
Big Little Lies
A small US town, four mothers and a murder. A recipe for success, as «Desperate Housewives» proved. However, «Big Little Lies» is better than that. This is due to the wonderful cast and the story telling. You won't really know what happened until the final episode. And then prepare to be doubly surprised.
In «Ozark» Jason Bateman can finally prove that his puppy dog eyes are misleading. In this money laundring series the romantic comedian hero can finally prove that he has what it takes to be a character actor. For fans of «Breaking Bad», «Narcos», «Sneaky Pete».
I've told you before but another warning can't hurt. Fraudsters are active on all housing platforms in Switzerland. Also on my pages. Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that all offers are genuine. I do my best to blacklist any i catch but
2. You're In Town
Whilst Züri Fäscht is a great event and amazing fun i am aware that many of you Ronsters maybe daunted by the prospect of sharing the city with 2.5 million people. But where to go? The areas around the lake are going to be
3. Active Scooter
One of my favourite things about Zurich is the ease in which you can get about, by bike, public transport or on foot. But there is a new game in town in terms of transportation. I’m talking of course about the, now ubiquitous,
