Binging Happy!

I dig it so far. Meloni is entertaining in the role.

Happy! is good. Dark, humorous, and violent. Weird as **** in some parts. Meloni is awesome as this character. I really didn't expect to like it this much, but it's pretty good. The fight scenes are done very well. Gritty, over-the-top with gore at times, humorous... reminds me a little of Deadpool in that regard. Much better than either season of the Punisher.

Thank you. I was hoping this would be the deal. It's good so far in terms of the writing and the acting, but everyone I ever talked to about it says it's the gawd drama series of all time.

 

 

btw, the one thing I've encountered with people that legit makes me hate them is when I recommend Breaking Bad to them and they watch two episodes and tells me it's boring. I want to hurt them so much. I tell them to just start with Season Three and eat a dick.

I watched the first 2 episodes a couple years apart a couple of times before I could bring myself to continue on.  That being said, it is one of my favorite series behind peaky blinders.

Just started Series 2 of Barry.  So good.

And Season 2 of Killing Eve. 

Also just finished the final season (Season 3) of The Fall--not as good as first 2 seasons but you need to finish it up.

Brockmire.. 

It's a dumb show but his monologs and one liners are fantastic  comedy.

Had a 4 hour wait in Miami last week so started to watch "Black Summer" on NETFLIX. I know another Zombie Apocalypse show. But I am pretty hooked on it. Very well done and some edge of your seat moments.

Tonight is also the Finale of "Gotham" loved it's run but it is time to end.

Has anyone watched Deadwood?   I started to get into it.  It's a bit slow and it doesnt really feel like it's going anywhere but I do like the acting and some of the situations they're put in are compelling but I'm starting to wonder if I'm wasting my time and there really isnt anything super suspenseful that happens or that it's building toward.

Anyone?

From what I remember nothing super suspenseful. Pretty much keeps the same rhythm throughout, But it was a good watch nothing fantastic. And they do have a closure movie on HBO next month. Supposedly takes place 10 years after the show ended.

I loved it 

Have to refresh myself before the movie debuts.

I actually lived up there for 6 years. Nice little quiet mountain town. Not much to do other than gamble and bar hop though. And I don’t give two sh*ts about gambling.

"What We Do in the Shadows" is freakin' hilarious - Matt Berry is a comedic genius.

Yes. It’s very much like GoT in the way that dialogue, manipulation and politicking are the primary sources of conflict and tension. Very curious about the movie.

Chernobyl on HBO. 1st episode is really, really good. Horrible what happened to those people, and how the Soviet State just made it worse.

Yeah I’m all over this. The lead actor was in The Terror, pretty good miniseries. 

Still two best shows on TV for me are Barry and Killing Eve.

Jared Harris? Richard Harris son, was great in The Expanse (and everything else I've seen him in).

Bone chilling.

If you're not watching "Catch-22" on Hulu, you are a bolo and a no go.

I laughed out loud.  On the B train.  Well, now it's the D train, maybe then it was the W.  The west end.

It’s not going to appeal to you macho troglodytes, but Fleabag would win all the Oscars if it was a feature film.

Ok. 

One of the best single mini-series  TV episodes I’ve ever seen was the 1st episode of The Night Of. 

I gotta say. I just watched for the 4th time episode 2 of Chernobyl (sitting waiting for the GF and am on my phone).  

Simply outstanding.

My opinion.

 

I thought Battle cry and Armeggedon by Uris (or anything by Uris) were better than Heller. I thought Naked and the Dead by Mailer was better. I liked The Thin Red Line as well.....but Jones WAS 25th ID so I'm partial. 

 

I think Catch-22 was pop culture 60's crap masquerading as literature. Hell, Slaughterhouse 5 is better than C-22, and Vonnegut was bat sh*t cray cray...

 

For the record, the most overrated vook in the history of books is Atlas Shrugged. Can't believe I trudged through that whole box of sh*t years ago. Rand told the same story but better in 1/100th the words in Anthem.

Thin Red Line was a great book that Terrence Malik took a big dump in with his awful movie.
