Joke, or just geography? I think you can get Netflix in England, but not the full US programming, much to their annoyance. Netflix WAS wonderful, because it was one-stop shopping for popular movies and vintage television shows. However, in recent times, the actual owners of all that good stuff have gotten increasingly greedy and expecting to run their own services, resulting in a steady reduction in stuff licensed for Netflix viewing. Perhaps the most noteworthy being Disney.
It's generally expected that the exact same thing will happen here that happened with streaming music. If you slice-and-dice into a million providers, each of which has to be paid, licensed, and fought with (Member "retention" services!), the most probably outcome is going to be that otherwise honest people will give up in disgust and simply pirate everything, resulting in less revenue, not more for the content owners. But apparently some people never learn.
Anyway, while there's a lot of stuff I like on Netflix, one recent favorite was produced by Spanish Television: El Ministerio del Tiempo (Ministry of Time). Turns out that Spain has doors to many times and places!

Nope, not a joke at all. I heard from friends about Netflix, so I think indeed it is streaming here in UK.
Usually my TV is on during the evenings just for the background noise while I'm doing something else. It was long time ago since I sat down and watched some movie from start to end. Lately I find movies talking about million budgets, special effects, but I don't find something intriguing in them anymore, but that's maybe hollywood, netflix it seems concentrate more on tv show series. I might try one day.
La Casa de Papel (boringly renamed "Money Heist" )
The Last Kingdom
La Reina del Sur (Queen of the South, the original)
Pablo Escobar, El Patron del Mal
El Ministerio del Tiempo (The Ministry of Time)

Well, this sort of became a Netflix series, after the fact. For season 3 at least. They've been doing a lot of partnerships with stations and production companies in various countries.
The Last Kingdom also fits this description, originally coming solely from BBC, but now co-produced with Netflix. So now we get more elaborate muddy English villages ("cities", such as they were...) to have the battles in. :) Great fun. Likewise La Casa de Papel, originally produced by a Spanish studio, later acquired by Netflix for further production. Eagerly awaiting the next installment of that one...
