Saw that they had Chinese names, but kept hearing Japanese so figured it was one of their shows.

I just watched Hap & Leonard season 3 and I thought it was really good (far better than season 2). I really hope they do another season despite the low numbers.

All five seasons of Babylon 5 are coming to Amazon Prime in June.

I know most of the series doesn't deserve the pedestal that geekdom has placed it on, but there are quite a few episodes in seasons 2-4 I'll gladly rewatch.

Edit: I can't calendar today.

I would like to thank Vladimir Putin for ensuring that every member of the NPR news staff has had to say "Pussy Riot" on the air multiple times.

Amazon passed on an Old Kingdom/Sabriel TV series co-written by the author. Fools!

Pilot has been written, now shopping to other networks.

Haunting of Hill House starting off strong, but I dearly wish that the Horror Genre could escape the clichés even once.  You can literally write the jump scares and tropes yourself as you go.

Interesting cast and dynamic thus far tho.

I only watched the first episode of the Hill House one.  It was okay but I'm in no hurry.  I've been addicted to horror films since I was like six or something and I aways watch a lot during October... tis the season... and most of it is rubbish.  Now that you've watched Slender Man, you also have no excuse not to watch Stickman.  Poor you.

Recommend the Bodyguard on Netflix with Robb Stark. Well done British thriller tv.

Binge watched 'Press' on the plane. 6 episode series about competing UK papers.

Pretty good. Looks like available on PBS for US viewers.

I am hearing and seeing references to this damn Bird Box thing, so I feel compelled to watch it just so I feel like I can be in on the meme.

Me too.

And without spoilers, is this movie actually, you know, good? At least to whatever viewing demographic I'm pigeonholed in.

(Meaning I never need to see another movie again that eloquently, and solely exists to, demonstrate the evils of racism/drugs/bullying/religious intolerance/whatever. I got that, I'm good and informed thank you.)

I liked Bird Box. It’s not groundbreaking (think A Quiet Place) but it is well acted and done. “Hell is other people” is a big theme though so if you don’t want to see humanity screwing each other at the end of the world you’ll be disappointed.

Finished the first season of Kingdom on Netflix and it was pretty bloody good.  I mean, not good enough to make a thread about (or even find one) but bloody good.  Glad they subtitled rather than dubbed, loved the hook of the monsties, acting was great with one exception and the cliffhanger was BRUTAL.

Well worth a watch.

Interesting.  The trailer looks interesting, but I am not quite sure I can get my filthy, uncultured arse to watch a subtitled show these days.  It would force me to actually look at the screen for the entire time, which it bothers me to consider that I may be unable to do.

I watched it dubbed, it was pretty good that way too. And yes, fuck that cliff hanger.

On balance I enjoyed it, but thought it was about twice as long as it needed to be for the story it had to tell.

Yeah I thought it was building to something more interesting than it ended with.

I see Into the Badlands has been cancelled. The martial arts choreographers for that show deserved a better series, I hope someone has the good sense to hire that entire team.

What really ruined the show was the fucking kid, who has to have been the worst actor in a major role that I've seen anywhere, just about. Painful.

I agree he wasn't very good, but I wouldn't say worst ever  why so serious?

But yeah, kind of a shame.  I like Season 1 a lot, the last two seasons were kinda meh.  But the choreography was unbelievable.  I hope they find another vehicle for that guy.

So I can't find a thread that talks about True Detective Season 3;  However, I've just finished it and it was brilliant.

The comparison between it and season 1 will be drawn (particularly amongst people who don't acknowledge season 2 existed), but for my part, I am honestly trying to figure out if I liked this one MORE and I fear the answer might be yes.

If you haven't watched, you should.  It's truly fine.

Trying to avoid spoilers, but it's on my "watch next" list.

Edited to add: Just watched the first episode, and it is certainly starting off strong.

But then I didn't hate the second season either. It wasn't as gripping as the first, but then what was?

Still going to avoid too much discussion about it yet though. This is not a show I can binge watch, so will be a few weeks before finishing.

I keep trying to get the other half to watch it but she wants to dedicate a weekend or holiday to watch it as we tend to get sucked in. Hopefully we can watch it soon.

Love Death and Robots has started and omg, they've made a cartoon of Sonnies Edge, the story by that pervert Hamilton.

That's a bit mental.  I wonder who else they're gonna do.


Edit ;  ooo full listings and they did Reynolds as well.  wheee.

Santa Clarita Diet season 3 is out, and so I went back to the beginning and started with S1 again.  I think this is one of the funniest shows around.

I'm about done with Netflix over this shit. I have actively started waiting to watch shows until they're wrapped up because of this crap. I know the networks did the same shit, but it becomes so much more egregious with how we binge consume content now.
