In case you missed these when they first came out…

Two famous Hollywood directors with strong Irish ties – John Huston and John Ford – are among those profiled in the three-part Netflix documentary Five Came Back. The series is about acclaimed directors who shot dangerous footage of World War II in order to shore up morale on the home front.

Irish writer and actress Sharon Horgan continues to earn raves in the comedy series Catastrophe, currently streaming on Amazon, and also starring Irish American comedian Rob Delaney.

If scrolling through “on demand” offerings, look up American Gods, which premiered in April on the Starz network. Based on the acclaimed Neil Gaiman novel, the series explores mythic Gods from various countries converging in modern day America. Among the central characters in American Gods is Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber), from Ireland, sidekick to colorful con artist, Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). ♦
