Just finished the book last week.  Liked it.  Started the show this past weekend; watched the first two episodes.  There are some changes to the hotel AI (besides the obvious that I'm guessing they co

Finally got around to watching BB.  Am about 10 episodes away from the finale.  Just absolutely love the series.   Can't wait to now embark on Better Call Saul, who along with Mike, Gus, Jesse and Wal

This could totally make up for how terrible Iron Fist was...

Just binged The Serpent on Netflix.

Dramatization of a true crime story about a 1970s serial killer in Bankok, Nepal and India, being hunted by a Dutch dimplomatic aid in Thailand-- crazy crazy story.

Not sure I loved it but I couldn't turn it off.  Very choppy going forward and back in time months weeks years to paint the whole picture.  Actually pretty well told story.  

The main charachter is one of the most stoic yet creepiest psychopaths I've seen on TV.

His wife/girlfriend/accomplice is GORGEOUS.

10 episode miniseries.  How can it not suck when all the great characters are dead? I guess they had to do it since the final season was complete garbage.  Whoever he kills, I sure hope it includes the writers for that last season.

Season 4 was the best. Don't even bother with 7 and 8.

Give it a shot bro.  24 was brought back with a sort of miniseries a few years ago and it was better than the final season

 

Maybe we finally get the manhunt the original series finale should have had

Yes indeed.  The one with Jack Bauer in London.  It was excellent. But hey brought back key characters like Audrey (and then they kill her off for like the third time in the series), William Devvane and more.  

I'll give it a shot because Dexter was a great show right up until Deb learned what he was.  After that it was 100% total sh*t.  The only way to do this correctly is to have Deb take over the "ghost" Harry role.  They can pop her in and out like they did Harry.  That could actually work.  A ghost who curses like a sailor.

I’m not going to type spoilers but the stuff I’ve heard sounds interesting.  I don’t mind seeing Dexter with a new group of supporting characters it will be different 

 

I won’t give it away but the plot very much reflects present day.  The world has changed a lot in 8 years

Have been watching Ted Lasso on Apple TV.  My wife really likes it.  I think it's derivative, goofy, and a cliche.   Other than that, it's fine. 3/10

I gave it a 9/10. Loved it. Every single character was spot on. Funny sad uplifting pathetic just really solid.

I tried.  Just too mom & pop for me. 

I will say that Hannah Wadding's character of Rebecca is the best thing on the show.  Ted's line about not being able to turn away from her arm wrestling contest with Michelle Obama was hilarious.   Problem for me is that there are not that many laughs overall.  And all the "pull at your heartstrings" moments are beyond saccharine. 

Not the worst show I've ever seen.  But if not for my wife, I would have bailed on it.   We'll disagree on this one , PF.

We should merge this thread with the other thread. Not sure which one to post in. Which mod should we ask?

Is anyone watching Invincible on Prime? It's the work of Robert Kirkman of Walking Dead fame. From the previews, it's looks like a campy cartoon... it isn't. At all.

The end of Ep 1 is shocking and awesome and now I'm hooked. A blockbuster cast including Steven Yeun, JK Simmons, Gillian Jacobs, Sandra Oh, Walton Goggins, Zazie Beetz, Jason Mantzoukas, Mahershala Ali, Zachary Quinto... check it out.

I'm sure buried in here are a few posts talking about the HBO's The Jinx, all about the Robert Durst saga over the last 40+ years.

The documentary is a few years old now but will become somewhat topical in the next month (I won't get into any spoilers).

Overall, it's pretty good, 6 episodes ranging from 40-60 minutes long each.

The payoff at the very end is worth the watch....it's been a while since a TV show made my jaw drop wide open like that ending did.

JK SImmons is in it?  It must be one of everything made in the last 20 years!
