Have started watching this. As mentioned by you, it is gripping. I come from a long viewership of medical drama series: Grey's anatomy (now boring), House (Good), The Resident(interesting till now) and now The Good Doctor.
The entire series (incl Season 3) is on SonyLIV.
In amazon Prime, it is shown till Season 2.

Anyone watching 911 on Hotstar? Its a good series too!

Do you know if SonyLiv requires any paid subscription, or is this among the free content available?

It requires paid subscription. But costs 499 for a year. So is reasonable IMHO. Plus if you have an Airtel postpaid or landline, it is free.

Just finished watching both the seasons of "Fauda" on Netflix.
Good one for binge watching over a weekend. Originally in Hebrew and Arabic, but has English subtitles and audio option. Fast paced consistently throughout the seasons.

Binge watched season 2 of The Kominsky Method on Netflix. It was every bit as good as season 1. One of the lesser known comedies out there but highly entertaining and the acting is top notch.

Just finished 'The Expanse' on prime.

Pretty entertaining series for folks who like space related content. The 4th season is supposed to be aired from 13th, hopefully it comes to prime soon.

An acquaintance recommended “The Devil Next Door” on Netflix, a documentary on the chase to nail down a suspected Nazi death camp operator John Demjanjuk nicknamed Ivan the Terrible. He was stripped of US citizenship and tried in Israel in the late 1980s.

It’s a roller coaster of a thriller set against the backdrop of the Cold War ending, with characters truly brought to life thanks to live footage of the trial and news reports of the entire affair from American and Israeli television. A lot of the main players- lawyers on both sides, judges, even relatives of the accused- are still alive and provide fascinating insights into the trial through in-depth interviews. I was absolutely riveted.

I haven’t finished watching it yet but should be done over the weekend. Highly recommended especially for those interested in WW2 and Cold War history.

Operation finale with Ben Kingsley playing Adolf Eichmann is along similar lines. Eichmann masterminded the logistics of shunting and executing Jews and is one of the prime architects of the Holocaust. After Nazi Germany fell, Eichmann, like many other Nazis, fled to Argentina where the dictatorship was sympathetic and even consulted the Nazis in matters of internal security.

Those familiar with the book 'banality of evil' would be familiar with Eichmann. Kingsley's histrionics where he argued that he was just a faceless bureaucrat carrying out his orders, even if that meant murder, is chilling. The dilemma of the mossad agents caught between bringing Eichmann to trial in Israel alive and their own personal experiences with the Holocaust are portrayed beautifully. A refreshing change from the boo yah special forces action flicks that Hollywood dishes out.

Available on Netflix

Somehow I never managed to finish it. Based on your recommendation now, I'll try again.

You guys may also want to check out the photographer of mathausen, and the resistance banker. Both are streaming on one or the the other of Netflix and Amazon.

I’ve watched Operation Finale as well. I have been fascinated by Eichmann’s incredible transcontinental arrest ever since I read a first-person account of it in the Readers Digest book section as a kid. It’s good, no doubt, and the dynamic between Eichmann and his captors has been captured very well. But in the end, it’s fiction. What makes “Devil...” fascinating is that it is all real. Live captured footage interspersed with interviews and not even a voiceover narration.

Edit: Thanks Mayank. Will check out “Photographer...” when I can. I caught “The Resistance Banker” in my early Netflix days and loved it; probably time for a revisit as well!

Fauda is one of the better shows out there. Since you enjoyed Fauda, do check out 'The Spy', on Netflix. Once again a series about an Israeli spy, and based on actual events.

Operation Finale is based on the actual events leading up to Eichmann's 'capture' and his transportation to Israel to stand trial. Its cinematic recreation and not fiction.

Started watching His Dark Materials, the new epic fantasy show from BBC/HBO. The show is HBO's attempt at recreating the magic of Game of Thrones and retaining that audience, but His Dark Materials feels very bland in terms of characters and intrigue and slow paced, atleast in the initial episodes. Will see how it improves as the season progresses.
