Welcome to the last post of the mystery mini-series. Since it is the last Thursday of the month we talk about TV shows rather than films, those about cold cases in specific.

#1 The Forgotten

I dredged this one up from the bottom of my memory. Has anybody else ever watched this show?

#2 Beyond Evil

Other than the first pick, I had to use some google powers to find interesting shows that fit the theme. I mean I could have just picked Cold Case, but I didn’t want to. Instead, I came across this Netflix film that I 100% need to watch.

#1 The Silence of the Lambs

Probably one of the most famous ones for this topic is Clarice Starling. Jodie Foster plays her role to perfection.

#2 Fargo

Another one that is absolutely brilliant is Fargo. In this one, we get Frances McDormand as the amazing female investigator.

For post number three in the mystery mini-series, we’re talking about media or technology mysteries. I’m not really sure where exactly one would draw the line between mystery and thriller, so forgive me if some of my picks are not perfectly on topic!

#1 Transcendence

This movie was just *bad*. Don’t waste your time actually watching it, but I couldn’t think of enough picks for this week otherwise. 😅

#2 The Net

I haven’t seen this movie in ages! It’s kind of cute to remember that floppy discs where a thing once upon a time.

Next up on our little mystery mini-series of posts, we’re talking about historical mysteries!

#1 The Name of the Rose

I bet this will be the most popular film this week. But The Name of the Rose is just too perfect a fit to not have it on my list!

#2 JFK

One of the events that are extremely persistent concerning conspiracy theories swirling around it, is definitely the assassination of John F. Kennedy. So, with JFK Oliver Stone really created a historical mystery film that still keeps people occupied.

To kick things off, we have A Fish Called Wanda, which is just an absolute classic. If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you even doing?!

#2 Charade

Next up, I just had to pick Charade because you can never go wrong with an Audrey Hepburn film. She’s just always divine.

For the last post each month we talk about TV series instead of movies, so let’s talk about some boarding school shows!

#1 Rebelde Way

Actually, I think Netflix is doing a reboot of this show atm, but I recall watching this way back when on German TV.

#2 Elite

So, Elite is a Spanish Netflix production that looks super intriguing to me. If I ever manage to finish watching Money Heist, that’s the next one I’m gonna tackle.
