I was super excited for it but Iron Fist definitely worries me.  I mean, what a terrible character and actor choice.  So dumb.

That said, I still have high hopes for The Defenders. 

He was good on Game of Thrones playing a gay knight who had an affair with the king.  So, if you can play that, why can't you play a Kung Fu expert?

(Oh yeah, cause they have nothing in common and he can't act so good)

Watched the fourth episode and can see how it's rapidly losing steam.  Just kinda slow and stupid.  Not sure if we'll watch the rest.  Still love Ms. Wing though.

Started watching "The Ranch" on Netflix.

Pretty funny.   Not amazing, but pretty funny.

Sometimes it's just a matter of fit, (see: Eric Stoltz in Back to the Future). If you watch some interviews with him I think it's because his real life personality matches up pretty well with Loras. Not a hard part for him to play when you just have to talk and act like yourself. He also is never really a central character in one season or episode, so there's not a ton to nitpick. Iron Fist, he is really something awful though. He might be good in other stuff but he was clearly a terrible choice for that part.

I'm gonna watch Castlevania on Netflix with the boy tomorrow.

And, I agree.   He was fine as Loras.   It's just Loras and Dany Rand are such different characters, it didn't work.

Just started "El Chapo" on Netflix.  Pretty good so far.  The acting is weird.  It's not bad acting, its just the voices dont have accents but sometimes they do and it just sounds weird. Almost like it's dubbed in.

Just completed the Leftovers. It was confounding, but really enthralling at the same time. I want to say I loved it, but it really depends on which strain of interpretation I layer onto it... because it's one of those shows that you can take in any direction in what it means to you, like abstract art almost.

Also watched some of GLOW, which was fun - just haven't finished it. Allison Bree boobies are a plus.

I never realize it was the Knight of Flowers actor. Sheesh...

I kind of like this, but the laugh track is awful.

That is my biggest complaint.   Why, why, why a laugh track?

Yeah, Ozark on Netflix. Not bad, not bad. Lotsa great stuff on here.  Misses the mark of being a great classic such as Breaking Bad, production and directing wise, it doesn't quite come together to make it a top show. But if Vince Gilligan had his hands on this it would've been.

I liked this more than anything I've seen on Amazon, and maybe NF too. Some good work on here, and several nice pieces on the soundtrack.

Anyone ever watch Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency?  It is a BBC show that is on Hulu.  I remember enjoying the books, they are from Douglas Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Adams.  I just started it and thought - this guy doesn't look like Dirk Gently to me and it turns out that it is nerd Spiderman, the guy that rode Sarah Jessica Parker in Seabiscuit. Only part way through the first episode, so I don't have an opinion yet.

I've watched most of the first season.  I like it, but it is strange.  I don't love it, but I like it and it certainly has its moments.  Could get me to love it, but hasn't yet.  Usually I love strange.  BTW, Tulip's car is not an SS, there were no 4-door Super Sports back then and Radial T/As suck.
