So the boards are back up again after being down for almost a week. What the fuck have you been watching bruh??

>True Detective s3
Way better than season 2 but not as good as season 1. That's not to say this season hasn't been great, it's just been more of a slow burn. The finale airs this Sunday and I'm really looking forward to it.

>Doom Patrol
Only one episode out so far but it's pretty promising for a pilot. Having the antagonist being the narrator is fun and the show is meta without being Deadpool-on-head levels of Random XD. Some people are saying that it's already better than Titans after a single episode... I don't know about all that, but it definitely gives me hope for Swamp Thing coming out later this year.

>Umbrella Academy
Gave it a shot and I got bored 3 episodes in. I'm all for more comic shows that aren't from the Big 2, but not if they're like this. Not trying to hate on the show, maybe it just isn't for me, but it feels like that Wes Anderson X-Men parody already did it better. (Source btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UngE0qn3VRY )

Haha, the boards were down for almost a week and I didn't even notice. Me 4 or 5 years ago wouldn't know what to do with myself. And I haven't even changed much, all the boards just suck now except /mtv/ and a couple others. What a shame.

Anyways, I've been watching a lot of Mad Men, Season 3. The show has kinda plateaued and gotten to a point where I'm not enthralled or eagerly looking forward to the next episode, but I always know I'll enjoy it. It's a reliable show. That doesn't seem like high praise the way I worded it, but in this day and age, it is.

I watched Team Foxcatcher which is a Netflix Documentary. Really Insane shit. Recommend if you wanna take a swan dive into the mind of a psychotic, schizophrenic, coke addled, 50 year old millionaire man child sports hero wannabe.

Mad Men is great. I know what you mean though. It isn't a show that has cliffhangers or big reveals... it's more akin to the morning after getting blackout drunk and having to deal with the emotional/moral fallout of the night before.

John Hamm's mannerisms in that character have started to tickle me though lol. He has these 3 or 4 go to facial expressions for charming people. There's the confused John Hamm, the intrigued John Hamm, the mischievous and quizzical John Hamm (pic related), and the carefree look right through you John Hamm. After a while you get to notice them being reused and you start to chuckle at them when you notice them being recycled but you recognize that god damn John Hamm is such a fucking charming motherfucker. How could any other actor pull off Don Draper?

I found that show totally uninteresting. Could have just been that for whatever reason I find Emma Stone and Jonah Hill on the screen together to be totally repulsive. It's probably just me but they have no chemistry and it feels like they just have some kind of friendship and are really forcing it.

I saw Jellyfish recently.
Sort of Submarine meets 8th Grade meets 8 Mile with more child abuse.
I thought the cast did a good job and in general it was a good film but have a couple of nitpicks:
The narrative arc seemed to want to lead to a moment of apotheosis but then left everything unresolved in a way that felt more like they just couldn't think of an ending than trying to make a point about real life being unresolvable.
The drama teacher's behaviour and general energy was quite strange; I didn't buy him as being a real person in a real teaching role. I think I know what they were going for but it wasn't right.

At the Q&A after Cyril Nri started telling an immensely dull story about how he got involved in the script but after that was interrupted he loosened up and seems immensely likeable as a pretentious goofball.
Liv Hill did well for such a young actress.
Sinead Matthews' performance was fantastic but she'll always be Jenny to me.
The only thing I really got from the Q&A is that the title is meaningless. There's a retroactive "Oh she's like a jellyfish because she's fragile but also has defence mechanisms" tacked on but no.

Toast of London is on Netflix but I haven't gotten around to checking it out yet. That's Matt Berry though, who isn't really front and center in Darkplace but he is a genius.

Also, have to recommend Snuff Box. It's hard for me to say if Snuff Box or Darkplace made me laugh harder.

The US remake is really bad. It isn't terrible, but considering Spike Lee directed, it comes off as worse. You can totally tell he just phoned it in while directing that movie and missed a lot of the themes.

I hate it when they don't stabilize the volume so you have to keep cutting it up and down and I have a pretty good setup and stereo system.

>>405202
Honestly, as far as UA goes its really not that bad and definitely watchable considering the current state of TV series. It also gets better as it goes.

However if you have something better to watch or haven't seen some of the old greats then skip it for now and maybe comeback later.

If you are looking for something newish and superhero-y I'd recommend Powers. It only ran 2 seasons but it was pretty good. I am biased though because I've been reading the comics since they came out.

I loved Powers the comic, the show on the other hand... well... I watched the whole thing and barely remember it. I remember at the time thinking that the CGI looked pretty weak. Also Sharlto Copely is a great actor but he felt miscast as hell. The rest of the cast was great, especially Eddie Izzard! It feels like Sony jumped the gun with creating an original series for PSN.

Doom Patrol is fabulous and perfectly nails every character so far (except Jane I guess but it would be pretty much impossible to do her well unless it was actually multiple actresses).

I hope we get Flex Mentallo and Danny the Street in some form.

Hell yeah! Going heavy on the Grant Morrison certainly helps. Between this and Happy!, I'm so glad that his works are getting to exist in other mediums. Not sure how to feel about Happy! getting a second season since the source material is only 4 issues in total, but we'll see what happens.

According to the showrunner, we'll see Danny the Street and Dorothy Spinner along with Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man and The Beard Hunter. https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/doom-patrol-showrunner-jeremy-carver-on-turning-the-comic-into-an-r-rated-series-for-dc From what some rumors say, Flex Mentallo will definitely appear (maybe not in this season aside from a tease or two though). Aside from all that I'm loving the easter eggs like Superboy and Krypto being mentioned in Doom Patrol and a random throwaway crime blotter post about Fire.

It seems as if DC has left a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths because of their attempts at the DCEU. As a DC fan, it's been a rough few years. I only signed up for DCUniverse so my little brother would have a chance to watch the new season of Young Justice but I've been blown away by how good all the original programming has been so far. Titans hit a few speed bumps but it's probably the best superhero show outside of Daredevil... until Doom Patrol came along at least. Season 3 of Young Justice has actually shocked me with the level of violence... that's the benefit of creating your own platform I guess. DCU has also given me the opportunity to share tons of classic comics with my lil bro.

Everyone outside of the US is kinda lucky that DCU shows drop on Netflix all at once. The only downside of these DCU shows is that they're weekly. That has encouraged discussion in multiple places however.

Lifelong DC fan, I think they get a bit of an unjustified bad wrap compared to Marvel. I haven't gotten around to seeing any of the DCEU movies yet and I hear they are bad to so-so but IMO in the live action department Marvel is mostly so-so to decent. On the live action and animated TV front DC is better and DC has been killing it with animated films for a long time, not to mention their comics.

DC Animated is the shit! While they appear on Netflix infrequently there are always torrentable.

They're far from perfect though. The Killing Joke had too much filler, which wouldn't be bad if it wasn't character breaking filler.

DC's live-action TV stuff has ranged from great to terrible, but quality always varies in a long-run series. NBC's Constantine was amazing the whole way through. Shame they cancelled it, but glad they brought Constantine in the Arrowverse.

Finished marathoning True Detective S3 and it was fantastic. Well written, well shot, well cast and well acted. The only things that stood out to me as not being great was a few green screen driving scenes that were not done very well, and Carmen Ejogo's English accent suddenly popping up in the last episode. Mahershala Ali was fuckin' great throughout and makes for a very convincing old man.

Man, I loved episode 1-7 but the finale was shit. You could watch S3E1 and S3E8 and skip the rest. They make you think its something else the entire time and it turns out to be garbage in the end. The way they talked about Louisiana and how the case got jammed up as well as in the Ozarks(S3) other locations, and specifically mentioned similar things happened all over pointing out Arkansas specifically leading me to think that would be the next season connecting S1 and a future season that Nick said would connect S1 to other seasons but no we get a bullshit junkie who paid to give her kid away who then lived a happy live for decades.

Ruined the whole season for me. They played too hard into S1 in S3 and then went a completely different way with it.

I can see that.

I felt just like you did when I first saw the finale. Looking back though I really came to enjoy it. Unlike the first two seasons this season didn't have any supernatural element or hint at it, and I think it helped. It played the audience right into it's hand. It was also a surprise that there was a relatively happy ending for a victim with a sad one for our senile main character. The final shot was perfect Purple Haze was always a soldier tracking through enemy territory in the jungle. He never changed... only the setting did.

Finished The Umbrella Academy and yeah... it's a no from me. Dark Horse comics come in two varieties; first is the "whoa! This is a cool as fuck story with great art!" the second is "love the art but the story is severely lacking." Had the same reaction to Hellboy. Looks cool as shit but there's not much there outside of cool monsters acting sassy and a few decent bits of lore.

No because I posted that before I'd got that far into the episode.
You weren't totally wrong, the bit where Amy acted all broken up because some dude once hit on her who she wasn't into and that's a thing I'm supposed to feel very bad about, that was dumb. I'm not complaining about social justice themes, the way that was framed and presented could actually be detrimental to people who've had real problems because it makes them look like idiots.

Watched the season premiere of Better Things. Glad this show is back. It is basically female version of Louie, which makes sense goven that Louis CK and Pamela Adlon used to collaborate together and they co-created Better Things, but I think it’s an underrated comedy. I did like the scene when Sam was at the bar and had to get her ID checked along with the other senior citizens at the airport bar.

Also what did y’all think of latest B99? Main plot with Jake, Amy and Rosa was at least relevant in today’s context but I don’t know if it hit its mark. I did enjoy the subplot with Holt, Terry and Charles however and that standoff at the end between Holt and the Disco Strangler.

You, along with everyone else that enjoyed Garth Marenghi's Darkplace should check out Matthew Holness' (aka Garth) horror movie, Possum. It's nothing like Darkplace as it's a straight up horror movie, but you might notice some similarities. It's really creepy and unsettling. Hell of a film debut.

new Brooklyn Nine Nine was finally funny again after a bunch of bad weeks in a row. I checked wiki, and apparently the writer also did this year's season premiere, so kudos to him for having the only two good episodes this season.

Speaking of shows with bad seasons this year, American Dad has been especially horrible lately. I know it always has had dips in quality, but what the hell?

TBS American Dad has been crap for the most part. We all see the potential but it isn't living up to the hype in the slightest. MacFarlane washed his hands of it with the network transfer.

This may not be a popular opinion but at least The Cleveland Show had a singular creative vision, making it better than what we've been subjected to in recent years.

I binged Sex Education. This show is hilarious and I'm glad I got into it. Having watched The Inbetweeners and Skins previously, which are two diametrically opposite shows about sixth formers, Sex Education is in the middle of them so it's right up my alley. Adam is such a goofy twat.

Homecoming

It was pretty good. The acting was really good except Julia Roberts. I wish they had gone with someone else. She is terrible. Always has been horribly mediocre. But even still, it was quite good. The supporting actors really picked up the slack.

It was from the same creator as Mr Robot so it had some artistic style and a similar thriller feel that makes for good suspense and buildup. The artistic style at first felt a bit disjointed but it eventually grew on me and worked. Most of the show took place 4 years in the past and during those parts the show was in normal aspect ratio, but when it was in the present it had a 1:1 aspect ratio. It felt very strange at first and I didn't really like it but they made really interesting use of it to get some really interesting shots that looked really neat.

Every other episode is okay but the ones that aren't make for very long feeling short films. They're also super edgy in a weird sort of way; it's like whoever commissioned them was standing over the writers the entire time egging them on to add as much swearing and nudity as they possibly could, just because. It feels forced and doesn't add anything to the narratives.

Absolutely brilliant film. It's heart-wrenching but also pretty funny. I heard a bunch of buzz about this movie when it was released last year and filed it away to watch later. It's since been on Amazon and wow... I'm blown away. It's been winning awards left and right since winning the Palme d'Or at it's Cannes premiere. Now I need to check out writer/director Hirokazu Kore-eda's other movies.

There's 2 eps out so far and they're both really good, ep 2 in particular. They do good at making you like all the characters, from the minor students to the three teachers and even Patton Oswalt (who I normally talk shit about). I still miss The Mick but oh well.

Are there any other good recent comedy shows I should be following? Bonus points if the season is actively airing so I have something else to watch weekly once I'm caught up. Just assume I've seen all the classic shows already. My current weekly show load is super small and I've given up on TV dramas, they went downhill fast with Netflix taking over TV, and books fill the void that The Wire and Mad Men left. Right now I only watch AP Bio, American Dad, and Brooklyn 9-9 for week to week shows.

Haven't seen the show but I had tons of people shouting at me to watch the first season. I'm a serious fan of Brit Marling though. The Sound of My Voice and The East are masterpieces (Another Earth was cute).

She's not a short-form storyteller at all. She reminds me of William Gibson's cyberpunk storytelling where the bits he leaves out are just as important as what he puts on the page. It's a kind of narrative jazz in that way. Now that season 2 of The OA is out, it might be the perfect time to check it out.

Watched the first episode of season 3 of Santa Clarita Diet, which came out today. I'm liking the story-building they're doing with why Sheila is undead and its connection to a virus in Serbia and the Knights of Serbia order killing the undead. What I enjoy most about the show is its tone in how non-chalant and humorous the comedy is with Joel and Sheila killing people at least they're neo-Nazis they're killing so it's okay so she can feed, which reminds me of the tone of Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. Also got caught up on the past three episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

I did also watch The Inventor and god damn Elizabeth Holmes is a Rule 63 Steve Jobs and so weird and delusional about what Theranos is trying to do and putting millions of peoples lives in danger that it makes Billy McFarland and Fyre Festival look like a saint compared to her.

So the first season was aight but this season is great. It's not an accurate 1-for-1 retelling of the book(s), no doubt about that. Instead it takes the source material and builds off it in logical ways. Technical Boy's origin story is superb.

I'm watching Resurrection Ertrugrul. This is certainly an interesting show. It's the first Turkish language show I've watched. It's kind of similar to American historical fictions like Vikings or The Last Kingdom except it's got a lot more emphasis on the drama and less on epic gory fight scenes. The fights are actually kind of cheesy because they just do this little fake blood splash and slow-mo, but I didn't mind, it's fun. The whole production is a little rough around the edges, but the setting is really interesting and the drama is great. I was kind of disappointed to find there were only 3 seasons, but now I'm on season 1 episode 33 and I realize it's not so bad. It's kind of like a soap opera really, but set in the past in an interesting time and place and with espionage in the palace and nomad tribes rather than cheating housewives providing the fuel for the drama. It's especially interesting to see the whole crusades thing portrayed from the Muslim point of view where they're the heroes and the Crusaders are evil. I can't say I've ever seen anything western on the crusades but I doubt it would have the same view. Also, let me just say how refreshing it is to see a romance without tons of graphic sex immediately after the two lay eyes on each other. Like damn, I didn't realize how tired I was of seeing that until I watched this show. it's nice to class it up a little and have some longing desire and shit build up.

Watched Maniac Cop 1 & 2. Haven't seen either since I was a little kid. The original is actually pretty decent for a low budget 80's horror. The second flat out sucks though. The idea of two serial killers meeting and partnering was completely wasted. The first movie was like an allstar B movie cast too. It has Tom Atkins, Bruce Campbell, Robert Z'Dar, Leo Rossi, Richard Roundtree, William Smith and Sam Raimi. The bluray for part 1 was weird too, every time there was a scene with the mayor the quality dropped to what was very obviously an old vhs capture, that even has tracking issues in a couple of scenes.

Here's an example of how jarring the quality difference is with the mayor scenes and the rest of the movie.

Watched the first episode of The Last Drive-In. C.H.U.D. is a pretty dumb movie so I enjoyed Joe Bob's constant criticism of it during the breaks. Castle Freak is a total creepy sex pervert movie, though, and even with Joe Bob's comedic bits during the breaks I didn't really like that one all that much. Looking forward to see what next weekend's episode has in store. Hopefully someone is saving these episodes, too, since I imagine the digital rights to these movies he's showing are volatile and the entire season won't always be viewable. Hell, some episodes might get removed from Shudder before the season ends since this is running through the summer.

C.H.U.D. 2 is great for all the wrong reasons. If you like bad movies it's a fun watch.

The original C.H.U.D. was meh. There are some cool scenes in it but the script is bad. For a better interpretation you should check out Death Line (aka Raw Meat in the US). It's British horror so the start is slow but it ramps up and becomes nutso.

Actually, I revoke my nb, invoke a bump, and request a pardon for double post.

I have been watching season 3 of True Detective and while this show is a fucking headache to keep up with at times, it's pretty fucking great. I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing that you have to think so much to align things, it's just the whole thing is a bit of a clusterfuck. To have the case being investigated in 3 different time periods and spectating all 3 at once is a bit of a mindfuck, but it's executed so well that I can still keep up with ease, and the little breadcrumbs that are dropped, leaving hints that travel through time, are really fucking rewarding to notice. I think season 3 is a return to form, as all the cliche critics are saying. Idk if anything could ever top season 1, but damn this cast and this writing is fucking great.

Binged Veep this past week and am all caught up now but I think as far as this decade is concerned, it's probably at the top of the best comedies list. Jonah's antics and Selina in general being kind of an asshole and not taking shit from anyone like she's the antithesis of Leslie Knope has been pretty entertaining to watch.

Last week's season premiere started strong coming off that two year hiatus and definitely my favorite part was when Jonah said that his wife was his former stepsister and that sit down interview made it even funnier.

Not quite sure how to feel about this show. It isn't very funny but it does hit very close to home. It's a coming-of-age story about two best friends entering middle school. Maya & Anna start the 7th grade in the year 2000... but they're played by their adult versions. Everyone else is a teen or pre-teen. From what I've watched it's pretty spot on as a cringe-origin story if anything.The laughs are few and far between but when they land they're atomic bombs.

Comcast is doing some thing where they're giving access to some content for free this week. I'm pretty sure they're just doing it to see who has a job or not because they literally had a survey asking if I had a job lol. They'll know from how much people watch even if they don't answer the survey. Anyway, I used it to watch the last two seasons of Banshee. I forgot how great this show is. What a fantastic setting with great factions and characters.

It was definitely pretty average but I came of age around the same time so it was decent background fodder while I was doing tedious art work. I had no idea Maya and Anna were actually in their 30s though. Talk about aging gracefully.

>Veep s07e02 - Discovery Weekend

Good episode especially for the Jonah subplot and their parody of #MeToo with #NotMe and women denying that they ever dated Jonah. The dude is such a cringey pompous sleazebag but I can't help but laugh at the shit he gets himself into as he digs himself deeper and deeper and yet gets more popular. Wasn't as into the main storyline with Selina though bringing back the sexual tension between her and Tom makes it more compelling if they're running against each other. Looking forward to seeing how these final five episodes go.

>Brooklyn Nine-Nine s06e12 - Casecation

The whole will they or won't they have kids storyline is cliche but they handled it in a respectful yet humorous manner especially the debate scene between Jake and Amy.

>This Is Us s03e14-18

I binged the last five episodes of the season and I thought it was kind of disappointing after a good string of episodes with the two parter about Jack's brother and Beth's origin story. While I at least thought the episode about Beth and Randall's marriage was good and Kevin has had a remarkable turnaround this season and becoming one of the show's best characters, the rest of it I can't really give a shit about.

>The Disappearance of Madeline McCann

God what a media circus this was especially given the conflict between the rules of Portuguese judicial and police investigations and the media looking for answers. I thought it examined all of the angles surrounding the case well but I just don't get how you can leave your child in the room sleeping in a foreign country alone like that. She disappeared without a trace and yet nothing had ever been found of her but I got a feeling she'll turn up dead or alive some day.

>The Case Against Adnan Syed

I also binged another true crime documentary series that HBO just aired this past month and HBO's true crime docs are pretty top notch as this one was no exception. I'm glad Serial helped to publicize the case and galvanize the public into investigating deeper hoping to clear his name, which for wrongful conviction cases like this is important to have the media and public on your side much like the Paradise Lost trilogy did for the West Memphis 3. Too bad unlike the 3, the prosecution isn't willing to give Adnan the Alford plea and still taking the word of some dude like Jay that probably lied his ass off to frame Adnan. It's awful what happened to Hae Min Lee and her family shouldn't have to go through losing a child like that but I don't think Adnan killed her especially given that when they finally tested the DNA evidence, there was no match. Not to mention the cell phone records don't match up to the towers and stuff.

>Us

This movie was creepy as fuck but Jordan Peele did it again, the dude's becoming the next great director of horror. I honestly don't know what to make of the ending with Red taking Adelaide's place and Adelaide becoming Red but I thought it was pulled off well. It also wasn't as violent as I thought it would be though more so than Get Out. Also props to them making a classic hip hop song like I Got 5 On remixed into an orchestral horror tune.

>>406352
Amen to that, I really miss that show though I wish season 4 had been better had it not been for the production issues with it. I loved the fight choreography and action and I always found the dynamic between Hood and Kai to be pretty compelling with both being on opposite sides of the law but on the same coin.

I was pretty entertained by this episode especially the scene where Jonah was arguing with those public image fixers about using the words retarded and gay. I was also surprised how they handled Amy getting an abortion. Enjoyed the part where she clapped back at that protestor about getting one and Dan commenting about the vaginal vacuum.

>Room 104 s02e08-12 - A Nightmare, The Return, Artificial, Shark, & Josie & Me

I got around to finish watching the remaining episodes season 2 but overall I thought the season was just as good as the last one and with more big names. I think my favorite episodes from this season were Hungry, Arnold and Shark especially the last two based on Brian Tyree Henry and Mahershala Ali's performances.

>The OA s02e01 - Chapter 1: Angel of Death

Hard to believe it's already been over two years since season 1 but the recap made it easy to remember what happened. I figured that the five movements and OA's sacrifice at the end of last season would help to make the dimension jump into one where she's Nina Azarova and wasn't adopted though is back in the same situation as Prairie Johnson being held prisoner by Hap but now in a mental asylum with Homer as a psychiatrist instead of another patient. I also think so far Karim's investigation into Michelle's disappearance has been compelling with the addition of that ARG Symphony playing a role in her disappearance. The video game aspect is something that's been done before in Black Mirror and other media but I guess I'll see how they put their own spin on it.

I remember making a thread for the first season here and the reviews on here were more on the negative side but I like Brit and Zaj's work like The East for example. I thought the first season was good for what it was despite a misstep in the season finale but its tone and themes reminded me a lot of The Leftovers, which was probably one of my favorite dramas this decade.

Almost caught up on The Walking Dead after reading a bunch of reviews from fans and critics about how good this season is. Turns out it's true. I only have two episodes left, and as a comic fan, I'm hyped for the big Fair in episode 15. I already was spoiled that Henry will be a head on a stick, so it's hilarious the way this season constantly treats him like a new main character in giving him all of Carl's old plotlines.

Watching veep and barry.

Not enjoying veep much at all. The characters have finally become thoroughly unlikable, but not in a funny way. Jonah bits from ep 3 are the funniest because of how over the top, rediculous, and slap stick he is, but it's painfully obvious how the writers have changed. At this point its become how many double entendres they can fit into an episode, and they are obviously trying hard to wrap up the character's relationships to one another as this is the final season, but it's very hard to care about any of them. It is honestly feeling more like the later seasons of arrested development.

Barry is pretty great, but not many jokes in ep 3 imo. Definitely less laughs and more suspense. I really do not care about what's happening with Fonzi's relationship, i get it, but i dont care. I only like Barry, and it's more like I'm agonizing with him rather than laughing at it. It's effective but i feel like hes suposed to have popped by now, and i think i see the pattern of him getting saved by his relationships that care more about him living through another episode. Kinda sillicon valley esq

Just watched the Last Drive-In episode with Deathgasm. It was... alright I guess. It felt like a student film someone made that was a big fan of Shaun of the Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Braindead. The practical FX were alright and some of the non-horror gags made me laugh, but overall the writing and script is a bit of a mess and it kind of looked like it was shot on digital video (hence the student film vibe) so I kind of tuned out from time to time.

Such a good movie if you pretend the last 5 minutes didn't exist. It was so jarring to jump forward to current day with that preachy bullshit. Don't get me wrong, I agree with the message 100% but there has gotta be a better way to get it across. It kinda makes me think they believe the audience is retarded if they think they've gotta hit you over the head with their message that hard. Come on...

I hope they release a version of the movie that deletes the last 5 minutes and adds an ending.

I finally decided to watch this even though I've seen Infinity War. I also think I should watch Infinity War again since Thor has the most important character arc in that movie.

One side note, they use way too much in medias res in this show. It doesn't ruin it by any means, but it's a bit much to start every other episode in the future and then jump back in time. Hell, I think the first or second episode used it twice in the same episode, which made me laugh.

No idea if it's been renewed officially, but Brit and Zal have a plan for 5 seasons. My favorite part of season 2 is that we learn Scott learned his movement while on the set of The OA from Phyllis Smith. Despite her role on The Office and all of her other acting gigs, she's only existed in our dimension (the one we all shitpost in) to teach Scott the third movement.

>Leaving Neverland

I always had a feeling that Michael Jackson was a pedophile even after his acquittal and this documentary certainly hammers that home. For Wade and James to come forward and publics with their experiences with Michael takes a hell of a lot of balls for them to do especially for the backlash they have already certainly gotten from fans of Jackson and will defend him no matter what. I think the doc paints a portrait of how the power of celebrity can mask a lot of the fucked up shit they can get away with. Obviously it's a one sided documentary but I don't know how anyone would be able to deny what Jackson did after that.

>The characters have finally become thoroughly unlikable, but not in a funny way.

I've always felt like the unlikeability of certain characters such as Selina, Amy and Dan for example made sense within the show's context given their positions in politics and because of that I've found that aspect to be one of the show's funniest parts. I can understand now why Julie Louis-Dreyfus won six Emmys in a row for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

>Jonah bits from ep 3 are the funniest because of how over the top, rediculous, and slap stick he is, but it's painfully obvious how the writers have changed.

I agree that Jonah's storyline and his scenes have consistently been the best part of the show. He's basically Veep's Dwight Schrute. I do think that while I do enjoy watching it and makes me laugh, it does feel a little different since Armando Iannacci stepped down as showrunner after season 4.

>>406708
lol that wouldn't surprise me if that were the case. And they got a plan for five seasons? Well I hope they can do it and not have it get cut short like Sense8 though their budget is probably much cheaper than Sense8's was.

My main issue with episode 1 was that it seemed to be running off a checklist of vampire cliches to make jokes about. Like, they really couldn't make it one whole episode before referencing Twilight? But after episode 1, they do far more unique things with the characters, subverting tropes and coming up with more original problems for modern society to throw at the undead

I snatched Cartoon Hell on a whim. I think people who are really into animation or drawing and that kind of stuff would really like it. As someone who isn't it is still half decent and the dialog isn't bad. Pretty good background show as well.

Basically two animators are stuck in hell and each "week" (it was released all at once) they get an idea from one of the demons for a cartoon and then they have to come up with it while doing commentary, talking about the show and the characters, and some quips here and there and then at the end they plug the picture they draw into a TV show making robot and it creates a show from the pic. If the show is good enough they get out of hell.

The new Twilight Zone series is actually really good. Surprisingly good. I caught myself thinking "they should tone down the politics a bit" but The Twilight Zone has kinda always been political. But the new series might be overdoing it just a bit. Just give us a some sci fi that's less political every now and then and I'm satisfied. A break from the more serious stuff.

That being said, the most recent episode is pretty hilarious. It's such an excellent way to make fun of Trump while also making a decent episode.

Such a beautiful bit of closure for Larry in this episode. Some for Cliff as well, but the majority of the emotional gut punches came from Larry's storyline.

The use of the original Moon River early in the episode was only made better by using Frank Ocean's version at the end. Had me crying like a bitch. That "You're telling me you haven't fucked anyone since JFK" line had me rolling though. Looking forward to more Ant Farm shenanigans next episode!

I just marathoned Lodge 49. It's the best show I've seen in years. It has this great contrast between fantastical tv-style scene setups and then has the characters react in these really understated believable ways. The show seems to write characters with basic compassion for each other in a way that's more believable than most shows.

Debt is a great central enemy. The way it just grows and seeps into every corner of the show is great.

Alchemy is such a great setup. I mean, they deal with it and treat it as a magical-realist element. But it's also the central metaphor for the whole show. Ernie and Dud are on a quest to turn their shitty lead lives into gold. They chase after this quack-guru trying to make it happen and then it all slips away from them in the last episodes. Like an alchemist chasing transmutation.

Liz's story too. It's so close to Ernie and Dud's. Except her guru just appears to be a quack. She might be more real, but any time Liz's path seems to be actually real... she runs. She's just the opposite of Dud. Dud is desperate to have something be real, Liz is terrified when something ends up being real.

If she's also a knight in the metaphor, she's the one who runs from the grail because she's scared when it actually appears.


Any one else watch this thing? I haven't heard anything about it before now but it's amazing. Glad it was renewed because it doesn't seem like it's been a hit.

New Brooklyn Nine-Nine was good especially with the real time format. I enjoyed seeing Scully and Hitchcock trying to get everything before the lasagna finished cooking with all the chaos around him. My friend did immediately and correctly predict that the hacker was the IT guy from the start.

I watched the first three episodes and still need to finish the season but from what I saw, it's a laid back albeit mysterious show.

Finally got a day off so I put on The Tick s2 as background noise while doing much needed household chores. It's not groundbreaking or anything but it's lighthearted fun with a good amount of cheesy wordplay and trope teasing. Peter Serafinowicz's American accent isn't as off-putting as it once was. It's by no means bad... just always been weird to hear it coming out of him.

I really liked all the new characters that were introduced. Between Sage the Supernumerary, Tyrannosaurus Rathbone, and Lobstercules this show is really starting to feel like a live-action equivalent of Venture Bros.

Finally got around to watching Breaking Bad, ended up binging the entire series over the past week because it was so goddamn good. I had no idea it would have so much (black) comedy in it to go along with the drama, so that was a pleasant surprise. My favorite character was Walt Jr., I was glad that in the end he didn't get killed off since he was the only truly good character on the show (besides the other kids like baby Holly and Brock, I guess) so it was so incredibly satisfying to see him save his mom's life in Ozymandias. Fuck yeah, Walt Jr.

I totally forgot that the second season premiered. Ever since I got a Hulu sub during their holiday $1 promo I haven't watched anything on Amazon Prime Video. so thanks for reminding me. The first season started really, really rough, but it was great by the end. Looking forward to seeing what they did for the second season. Hopefully they didn't superfluously split it up into two releases like they did with the first season.

This season is only 10 episodes, but it feels more consistent and tighter all around. It also came out all at once so there's none of that half-season crap this time. Here's hoping we don't have to wait three years for the next season.

btw the teaser for season 3 could make for a really fun story.

I guess, but by the end of the series it really felt like Walter was hoping to replace Walt Jr. in a way with Jesse. To Walt, his actual son was handicapped so he had a bit of pity for him while also a desire to make Walt Jr. admire and respect him. With Jesse, he was the son that Heisenberg Walter always wanted (and needed): and impressionable youth that he could mold, and whenever Jesse got out of line he could deceive and manipulate him back into servitude, something he likely would actually feel guilt for if he did to Walt Jr. I think the big moment in Ozymandias when Walt Jr. stood up to Walter in order to save his mom was the perfect capper to the Walt-Walt Jr. arc because even with all of Walt's attempts to preserve his ideal image of what he wanted his family to be, his evil intentions finally got the best of him, and when confronted with what his dad (who was his self-professed hero) actually was, a monster, Walt Jr. didn't give Walter any benefit of the doubt and he stood up to Walter. Jesse kind of ended up doing a similar thing at the very end of the final episode, too, where when Walter asked him to kill him he told Walter no, as he was finally done doing what Walter asked of him and letting Walter manipulate him. God damn, what a great show. I'm guessing Better Call Saul won't live up to it so I'll take a breather and try to watch it as its own thing as much as I can. I love Bob Odenkirk, though, so I doubt I'll hate it regardless.

I remember watching that as an 18 year-old senior and thinking it was some profound film. Looking back on it as an adult, though, it's just a vapid wankfest that tries to romanticize a couple of pussy psychopaths. It's well-disguised trash.

Nope, their parents were normal and made them pancakes. No abuse or anything, are you mixing two movies together? The gay thng wasn't romanticizing them, they just went "well we're gonna die today, and i've never kissed anyone." And then kissed.

As for being devoid of characterization, I thought they had some believable characters, and the style of the movie wasn't about setting up your typical characters or narrative. It was more of in the vein of cinema verite, about a day in the life of a high school that happens to get shot up

And I totally see why most people wouldn't like that approach, not having a concrete narrative. but I thought it worked.

Picked up Deadwood a few days ago. There aren't a whole lot of good shows on and I've got HBO so I figured I'd give one of their older shows a go. I looked up Deadwood on imdb and saw a ridiculously high score so that's why I chose it and I'm hooked for real. Very few shows and movies end up above an 8 on imdb and this show definitely has earned high praise.

The actors are all really good. It's really cool that they got 2 of my favorite science fiction character actors in this show to play very different characters than their usual deal. William Sanderson, the toy maker from Blade Runner plays one of Swearengen's sycophants and does an awesome job. His acting is really consistently super high quality. And Brad Dourif plays Doc Cochran. Dourif had probably the most famous and well remembered line in Lynch's Dune. "...fear is the mind killer..." Before seeing him in this role, I've really only ever seen him play characters that seem to be totally insane yet somehow functioning. His kinda hallmark was that his characters all seemed to be hovering right on the edge. Of what I'm not sure but there's definitely some edge to his character and not in the way most people use the word edgy. It's hard to explain, but he's an amazing actor and this role is a huge contrast to the other roles I've seen him in, as he's probably one of the most sane and grounded people in the entire town.

The rest of the cast is great too, but when I saw both of those guys that I really love, that's when I decided I'd see this show through. And I love Westerns, so I don't know how I managed to go so long without checking out this show. I'm glad I found it now though.

Deadwood and Rome were the true renaissance of HBO originals.

They both failed prematurely financially, but Deadwood got a lot further and didn't start to gloss over so much as the money ran out. Rome was ultimately much more ambitious from the beginning.

I'd love to see them try that again with the Game of Thrones treatment.

That's the thing, though,I had no problem with the slow burn. I loved the sound design and the creeping dread, but then it just goes from 0-to-100 for the final 8 minutes or so, the villains act really dumb, she inexplicably just gets out of her constraints and escapes, and that final scene of her in the hospital after she blew her brains out was just the biggest "fuck you" to the audience's intelligence and it would have been fine if it just cut to the credits after she shot herself.

Man, I wanted to like this but that final act just ruined it.

This is from Iron Sky 2. But Iron Sky is a perfect film and I defy anyone to say otherwise and if you do you are uncultured schweinhunds you understand?

Been catching up this season of Better Things before this week's season finale and watched episodes 2-9 this past week. Louis CK isn't involved with the show anymore but this season has honestly been really fucking great and credit to Pamela Adlon for that. The one scene where Sam had Duke and Frankie say whatever they wanted to each other made me laugh my ass off with all the insults Duke rattled off to turn a tense scene into a hilarious feel good one. Good shit though and hope it gets renewed for another season.

The trailers for Big Little Lies season 2 and Euphoria just dropped. Big Little Lies really surprised me by how good it was from an acting perspective since going into it I thought it was gonna be a Desperate Housewives ripoff but boy was I wrong. Adding a renown actress like Meryl Streep certainly adds to that.

As for Euphoria, even though it's an adaptation of an Israeli show of the same name, it's pretty much just like Skins. Not that it's a bad thing per say since the American adaptation of that sucked and this looks like what it could have been if Skins were on premium cable or a streaming service instead of on MTV.

I've been binging on The 100. Just starting season 3 now. It's great, what a fun setting with a plot that forces the characters to make hard decisions. I'm surprised I only heard about this for the first time last month because there's already 5 seasons.

Netflix US withholding the 4th season of Better Call Saul is such horseshit. They even accidentally put it up earlier in the week and quickly removed it. Ever since I binged the first three seasons over the past couple of weeks I haven't felt like watching anything else until I watch the fourth season. It's not even available on AMC's shitty app/website either so I don't get what the hold up is on putting it up for streaming.

I suppose you could call it a two-part finale even if they only double up on episodes. The second was a pretty heavy episode for the series with a serious shift in tone. It still had jokes and all but that ending was a downer.

I've always seen the show as background noise or something to watch when nothing else is on, but if they can keep up this level of quality I'd be amazed.

Been binging through the Harry Potter films these past two days. Gonna watch Deathly Hallows Part 2 tonight but the films have been surprisingly really good. The Harry Potter series really did set the stage for multi-film universes that Marvel, DC and others have copied with much success. I like how the series just gets progressively darker and better although Chris Columbus' childlike charm of the first two films was good.

>>407612
Also finally watched the 2 part season finale. It was a fun two episodes and I liked seeing Jake's "suicide squad" especially seeing CJ and The Vulture return. I also did enjoy watching Holt and Wuntch having to begrudgingly team up with each other. Glad it's been renewed though they haven't said if next season will be the last but I feel like it should be.

Watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Much like with Avengers Endgame, while the Harry Potter saga's endgame was predictable with Harry finally avenging his parents' deaths in killing Voldemort. the journey certainly was worth the ride. I did also like Neville killing Nagini with the sword of Gryffindor, it was a great payoff to the character development with him throughout the series. Though I'd like to imagine how the series would have gone if they went the Game of Thrones route and adapted it for television because at least JK Rowling finished each of the books before they could be adapted on screen.

>Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them & Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Watched both Fantastic Beasts films since I already watched the Harry Potter films. I liked the first film more than the second film not surprisingly but I do like Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander. The first film was pretty fun and easy watch storyline wise although the second film I think got a little carried away and ambitious. I'm surprised that Fantastic Beasts is going to be a quintology though.

>Lunatics

I finished up watching Lunatics. I thought it was pretty funny and Chris Lilley's best show since Summer Heights High although that's not really saying much. Gavin and Quentin were probably my favorite characters but I feel as though Lilley's style and humor can be hit or miss depending on the character and situation.

>Easy s03e01 - Swipe Right

After I finished Lunatics, I started watching the final season of Easy. I remember when I was watching the previous season, I had mentioned in the BWW thread how similar the show was to High Maintenance and I still think that's true although Joe Swanberg's direction and writing is more focused on the relationship aspects with each of the different characters rather than those aspects being interwoven with one central character being a common thread with weed. The season premiere in particular I thought was humorous albeit an interesting perspective on being in an open marriage.

Watched season two of The Tick. It was enjoyable but it felt like 10 episodes wasn't enough considering barely anything happened in the grand scheme of things, unlike the first season. There was a huge plot twist in the 9th episode that just gets neatly wrapped up an episode later so the end of the season felt really rushed. The budget for the second season seemed way higher than the budget for the first, so that was kind of cool, but I also wonder if that ultimately was the reason why Amazon canceled it. I doubt it will get picked up by either Hulu or Netflix since it's such a weird niche show, but that would be cool if it did so that they can finally get around to reintroducing the old cartoon villains.

Also, what was the deal with Bronze Star? Was the joke just that he looked like a street performer and how they never spoke of whatever his power was or showed him doing anything heroic? Or is he a character from the comics that the audience was supposed to be familiar with? That Sage guy was pretty cool, though. Still, though, the whole group at AEGIS and the new Flag Five felt like the Mystery Men more than an actual superteam of superheroes, so that was kind of lame.

Peter Serafinowicz is just a great Tick, though. Here's hoping he gets to reprise the role again some day.

The Soviets have a nuclear reactor that provides power to the near by towns. One night a crazy Soviet scientist decides to push the reactor to the limit and ignores all the advice that is given to him by fellow scientists of lower rank. The nuclear reactor is faulty because it was built in a hurry with some cost-cutting done and hence cannot withstand this test that is being carried out by this crazy motherfucker. The reactor goes BADABOOM and a fair amount of brave men die trying to contain the aftermath.

If you haven't seen it, you should check out Doom Patrol. 90% of it is based on Grant Morrison's run of the comic and while not as raunchy as Happy! is, it's still pretty out there and deliciously meta. Also the first season just ended last week, perfect show for a binge.

Sad reality of SyFy. They don't want critically acclaimed or cult following shows. They want paint by numbers shows they can produce in Vancouver on a shoestring budget. Who cares if it's good, can they get people who aren't watching NBC or USA in the same timeslot?

I don't really blame them for cancelling Deadly Class though. I'm a huge fan of the comic and the show was so boring! It was relegated to basic cable primetime. Licensed 80s songs aren't a free pass to a hit show.

>Booksmart

Since it has a 97% on RT and critics had been saying it's the female version of Superbad, I went to see this movie in the theatre yesterday and it was honestly a really good hilarious film. Already one of my favorite films so far this year. I really liked Amy and Molly's chemistry and the performances from Billie Lourd and Skyler Gisimodo (Eric from Santa Clarita Diet) were the film's other highlights. A ecletic cast of characters and the writing was pretty sharp and witty but not being too over the top like Superbad sort of was. A solid directorial debut by Olivia Wilde all things considered.

>Better Things s03e12 - Shake the Cocktail

Finished the last episode. It was bittersweet especially the scene with Max and Duke giving Sam her birthday cake but yeah fuck Frankie. Just wish Sam had more lady balls to put her foot down. I'd really like for them to delve deeper into why Sam is the way she is as a mother next season. Also that one scene where her husband was jacking off to her wearing those shoes in bed was weird as hell.

>High Maintenance s03e02-9

Got around to finishing season 3 of High Maintenance this week. I've always dug the show's vibe and slice of life storylines interconnected with The Guy. It also did introduce me to how fucking creepy reborn dolls are.

>The Handmaid's Tale s03e01 - Night

Watched the season premiere. It was alright but I'm interested to see how they handle Serena's mental state given she gave up her kid and started the fire in the house. Fortunately June is back with Lawrence but I still think that he's a shady dude and probably has some ulterior motives even if he did help to get Emily into Canada.

>When They See Us - Part 1

I only watched the first part but fuck this shit is so frustrating to watch about The Central Park 5 especially after watching those docs on the West Memphis 3. Ava DuVernay's directing and dramatic license being taken notwithstanding, the whole case was a complete gross miscarriage of racial injustice and honestly I'm not surprised people are canceling Linda Fairstein. I should probably watch Ken Burns' doc about it after this.

Oh my god it's so fucking bad.

The writers all have such a nostalgic view of what The Twilight Zone actually was. They go out of their way to hit all the superficial bullshit of social commentary and plot twists at the end while failing to fulfill what makes a good Sci-fi story.
You could argue the last couple seasons of Black Mirror are a pale imitation of Black Mirror. The Twilight Zone is a pale imitation of that.

Most of the episodes were mediocre. The ones that weren't made me so fucking angry. The finale was such fucking empty wank I can't take it. Wunderkind, if you read the synopsis sounds EXACTLY like what a great Twilight Zone episode should be. Then you watch it and it's fucking infuriating. And I'm a person who likes The Waldo Moment and hates Trump. I'm not any of the things you'd expect someone to hate Wunderkind for, and I was so fucking mad that I actually threw out my first one star on IMDB for that episode.
The sad thing is that if Jordan Peele dropped his other projects and comedy and dedicated his life to writing Twilight Zone it would probably live up to the original in every way.
CBS knew that's what hiring him as host would suggest, but they shot themselves in the foot by not living up to it and just writing it in the typical TV writing style.

Watched Deadpool 2 (the extended cut). Was alright, I guess. Not as good as the first, but not bad. Didn't care for all of the shit with the morbidly obese kid, but there were at least some really funny jokes throughout and the action scenes were pretty cool.

No idea if they're ever going to make the X-Force movie or Deadpool 3 now that Kevin Feige is in charge of shit now, but it would be a shame if they cancel them for good or Feige meddles with either to make it fucking fit in witch Phase 4 or whatever the fuck they're on.

Oh for fuck's sake, why did you delete my comment after I reported it for messing up the spoiler tags instead of just fixing the spoiler tags? DrWorm, was that you, you dummy? Why can't you be enthusiastic about fixing spoiler tags like Chiggins is?

Fucking whatever, I'm not typing up all of that again but as an aside I found out that HBO Go/Now has Once Upon A Deadpool (along with both theatrical and extended cuts) that you can access by clicking on the "Extras" button. The PG-13 cut of the movie sucks but the interludes with Fred Savage are great (the running gag with Savage pointing out that Deadpool isn't a "real" Marvel movie because it isn't made by Marvel Studios is pretty much the best gag in the PG-13 cut of the movie). I wouldn't recommend paying for that cut of the movie otherwise.

>The Handmaid's Tale s03e02 & 3 - Mary and Martha & Useful

I watched the other two episodes that came out last week. I think the season has started off slow so far but the end for episode 3 after June revealed that she chose her five Marthas to join the resistance, got me interested to see where they go with that storyline especially with Lawrence being sort of involved but to the extent of where he can maintain plausible deniability. On the other hand, Serena's gone off the deep end but after giving up her child, how could she not?

>Big Little Lies s02e01 - What Have They Done?

I was surprised how short the season premiere was at only 43 minutes but it was good. Meryl Streep playing Celeste's mother-in-law certainly has already made her impact felt on the show not only given her character's motivations oftrying to find out what happened to Perry but also because Streep is a great actress. The other thing I like about the show is how it's a dramatized yet somewhat accurate portrayal of being a parent in a middle to upper-middle class area especially the one scene with the school assembly and all the parents having to sign the school song.

I'm watching Deadwood season 3 episode 1. Bullock just met Hurst and then after the meeting beat the shit out of Mayor Farnum. I don't get why he was so mad at him. Did Hurst say something that made him think EB said something he should have about Mrs. Garrett or was he just mad at Hurst and taking it out on him for no reason other than he was the closest guy?

Watched the first season of Ash Vs. Evil Dead. It was very uneven throughout, with some funny bits here and there, but also some terrible writing and acting frequently. Bruce Campbell is a treasure, at least, and shines throughout, but from time to time even Bruce Campbell can't save this show from terrible writing. The practical FX were great, but they also used a lot of really awful CG, so that was a downer. It's also strangely mean-spirited more often than not, too, which really clashes with the comedy that Army of Darkness was built on. It felt like there was a creative struggle between creating a funny horror comedy show and making a cruel, downer horror show like The Walking Dead, and I feel the show suffered because of it.

Overall I was pretty disappointed by it. It just makes me want to watch the original movies instead of watching the second season. The allure of more Bruce Campbell is pretty strong, though. I dunno, maybe I'll watch Burn Notice instead.

I saw The Secret Life of Pets 2 with a friend who's really liked the first film but for some reason thinks Toy Story is overrated. The film was a fun and easy watch, not good but not bad either though not as good as the first one. I will say that anytime Nick Kroll plays a villain in an animated film like Sausage Party and Captain Underpants, I get a kick out of it. Patton Oswalt was an upgrade from Louis CK just because he has much more of a personality when it comes to voicing characters like he did in Ratatouille and on Happy!. Also as much as I don't give a shit about Kevin Hart as an actor, he's more bearable playing an animated bunny and doing a musical cover - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9gs5BR31UA

I haven't gotten around to watching season 3 yet but I think you should try to watch season 2 because it's an improvement from the first season. You have to remember in the first season that they weren't allowed to mention Army of Darkness or anything relating to the film due to not having the rights or whatever, which is why it feels that way. Season 2 does have more AoD type horror comedy since they were able to get them.

Yeah, after the recap in the first episode I read up on why they didn't mention AoD (different studio owns the rights), but then in the last episode Ruby showed a page in the Necronomicon that had a drawing of Ash raising a shotgun in front of a castle so I guess maybe they can kind of reference it?

Also I remember watching the first season of Burn Notice a decade ago and really enjoying it. Plus you can't tell anyone they would be wasting their time when you watch like 11 hours of pro wrestling every day along with all of the hipster MTV bullshit television shows you watch instead of The Wire.

Burn Notice sucks and Bruce Campbell is the only redeeming quality. I had an ex-gf obsessed with Burn Notice who made me watch multiple seasons, and in season 1 it seemed like the show would eventually grow to have some crazy ongoing plotlines, but nothing ever actually happens. All the actual arcs suck and the filler episodes grow more and more repetitive.

What he said is idiotic and lying through omission. The whole point of the series is that it dismantles the idea that one bad scientist can cause a meltdown, and rather the entire system is broken. It is the perfect allegory for what happens when lies are told more often than the truth and encapsulates that what was going in in the soviet system then is going on now. It's told without Russian accents and is as gripping as it is thought provoking

Right? The show is so fucking good. A lot of people consider The Sopranos HBO's best show, but to me it's always been The Wire. Everything from using locals as actors to the diagetic music/sound to the accurate portrayal of Baltimore just adds to it's greatness.

Fair warning... people consider the second season the worst because of the sudden addition of a new setting with a bunch of new characters. Stick with it because it's still a good season and show. Each season adds a new setting/institution but ultimately they all strengthen the story and give you background to the game as well as flesh out the city.

Watching the new American Dad and there's one joke that's just too much to take, although you need to pause to episode to really take in the gag so watching on an old-fashioned live TV will screw you. But I've currently got my tablet paused on the card that Stan hands Jeff and it's got some of the most absurd lines in it that it's really worth taking a few minutes to read it out, the writers of this episode put a lot of effort into this stupid thing. The best is where the punchlines get cut off by Jeff's thumb, I'm pretty sure one of the things on Francine's no-no list is "No black guys" but the word after Black is blocked lol

The Sopranos is pretty good but it's difficult to binge because it doesn't really change much, it just goes on and on. Which would be fine back then when most people watched it on tv and got long breaks between seasons.
The way The Wire changes each season but stays familiar is really refreshing. I doubt any modern show would dare to do this.

goddamn now I wanna rewatch The Wire again.

>The Handmaid's Tale s03e04 & 5 - God Bless the Child & Unknown Caller

It's still been kind of a slow start but they've kept it interesting plotwise with June living with Lawrence at the same time that Serena is trying to become closer to her. Aunt Lydia beating on Janine for wanting to see her baby was messed up but you could see all the regret from Lydia after she did that. Also the encounter between Luke and Serena with Nichole, I thought something bad was gonna happen though at least Luke got his tape and Serena I presume got a satellite phone though I'm not sure if it was from Luke to deliver to June. Although the end of this week's episode with Fred pleading to the Canadian government to bring back Nichole is gonna open up a whole can of worms and probably some Elian Gonzales type crisis between Gilead and Canada.

>Big Little Lies s02e02 - Tell-Tale Hearts

Fuck there was a whole lotta drama but it was damn effective. Maddie and Renata's marriages are starting to fall apart now that Ed knows Maddie cheated on him and Gordon is under indictment for security/wire/mail fraud and she'll probably not be rich anymore. It's always funny to see how pissed off she gets about stuff. Bonnie's still suffering from PTSD after what happened but it was interesting to see her mom now getting involved between her and Nathan. Celeste is also still going through a lot dealing with Perry's past abuse but I thought the scene where she pushed her kid after he was fighting with her brother saying he won't be like him [Perry] and when she imagined Maddie being abused by Perry were some pretty intense scenes. Though it was nice to see Ziggy finally know who his father really was as hard as it was for Jane to tell him about her being sexually assaulted and stuff and the revelations now have brought Celeste and Jane closer. And Meryl Streep has been pretty damn good as expected and I imagine she'll probably get an Emmy nomination for best supporting actress next year or something.

>Veep s07e04-6 - South Carolina, Super Tuesday & Oslo

I'll admit this season hasn't been as laugh out loud funny although Jonah's storyline has been pretty funny finding out his stepfather is actually his father making him and Lindsay half-siblings and his usual dumb shit of being an anti-vaxxer and getting chicken pox. I've also enjoyed seeing how Richard made his way to becoming Iowa's governor by accident and how he's handled everything. Michael McKean guest starring was great too as a more foul mouthed, angry version of Chuck on Better Call Saul.

I really enjoyed this movie as a whole, but yeah Matt Damon turning into a Bond villain was really weird. I also really enjoyed how the audience in the threater when I saw this laughed when it was revealed that Matt Damon was in the ziploc baggie. But yeah, this movie should have ended at the point when McConaughey escaped the black hole with that great show of him floating in space with the rescue ship showing up in deep focus. That would have been great. As it is, the whole goofy bit with him visiting his old granny of a daughter, and her telling him about the Power of Love™ and then him stealing a little ship like he was Luke Skywalker and flying off to save Anne Hathaway was just a really goofy way to end the movie. I keep forgetting I bought this in 4K during a holiday sale, I need to get around to re-watching this to see if it holds up (and how the HDR looks). I need to get the other Nolan 4K releases, too. Really sucks they did such a limited release for that set.

I'm watching Hannibal season 1. It's pretty good so far, but it's annoying as fuck how everyone is making all these giant leaps of inference with extreme confidence and then not bothering to explain how they came to that conclusion. It's just lazy and not believable to the extent they do it, but whatever I can just sit back and enjoy it for what it is. I think that what made the first couple seasons of sherlock so amazing was that they actually explained how all those genius inferences came about from his observations.

Hannibal's strength was in the production design, specifically when it came to kills. It's like they took the random stuff you'd see in something like CSI or Bones and ramped it up to 11. That paired with the chef-porn scenes led to something unique.

Good Omens is so fucking funny, holy shit. And I love how charming Terry Pratchet humor is, most comedies I watch go harder on the edgy factor. Yet somehow this cutesy show is the one pissing off Christians now instead of edgelord shows like Rick & Morty, go figure. I only have one episode left and am loving it. What Pratchet books would be best if I want more similar stuff? I've already read everything by Gaiman, but the only Pratchett I've read was the first 3 or 4 Discworld years ago.

Hogfather is good, basically people stop believing in the Discworld Santa (he goes missing or something, it's been a while since I read it) so in order to keep the holiday alive the anthropomorphic personification of Death fills in for him because in the Discworld the power of belief is all that keeps gods alive.

Also any of the books revolving around the Ramtops witches. Maskerade, Lords and Ladies, Carpe Jugulum, Equal Rites, Wyrd Sisters, etc. Sourcery might also do the trick.

However, I have to highly recommend the Brentford Trilogy by Robert Rankin. It has that same tongue in cheek style as Pratchett and (at least one of them, maybe the last one) revolves around the coming of the antichrist. I can't recommend it enough.

>True Detective s03e05-8 - If You Have Ghosts, Hunters in the Dark, The Final Country & Now Am Found

I finally finished season 3 of True Detective and while I'll say it's much better than season 2, I did feel like the final episode made everything that was brought up before like the connection to the pedophile ring in season 1 and stuff like that basically red herrings and having Junius explain everything that happened to Julie in one scene to Wayne and Roland was a pretty anti-climatic to the Purcell case. Sure the season did provide for a happy ending and that Julie was actually alive and closure for Wayne and Roland's stories but I felt like using the same structure as season 1 with three concurrent time periods didn't exactly hit its mark for this particular story. If it was more of a linear structure then I think it would have been better.

I'm trying to go through a list of DC animated movies that I haven't seen. Yesterday I finished Batman: Year One, and now I've finished The Dark Knight Returns Part 1.
Next is Part 2 and then I'll probably watch Flashpoint Paradox afterwards.

Are the New 52 movies worth watching. I see a lot of mixed reviews. Some people love em, some people absolutely hate them. I enjoyed the two Teen Titans movies.

The recent DC animations are kinda hit and miss, mostly pretty decent though.
The Under the Red hood adaptation is pretty decent as are the two suicide squad ones IMO.

Only issue with these fireworks shows is trying to get the right camera angle so you can see the fireworks instead of the smoke getting in the way though it's less of an issue with the Macy's one since it's a bigger budget show.

Finished season 1. I'm really enjoying this show especially for its continuity and consistency with its characters and running jokes.

If you can sit through the Teen Titan movies, you can make it through any other garbage in the new 52. The trilogy with Damian Wayne is fucking awful.

Flashpoint Paradox is good. Gotham by Gaslight was alright. I also liked the two Suicide Squad ones, and Dark Knight Returns is probably my favorite behind Red Hood, Beyond, and Phantasm. There's apparently a Batman x TMNT crossover that came out recently, so I was gonna watch that while I wait for Hush. There was a Harley Quinn one that I was excited about because it was apparently the same continuity as TAS, but it sucked something fierce. The Long Halloween also needs to happen yesterday.

It was a reboot and rewrote a lot of established canon. The company thought if they undid a bunch of their more confusing arcs and made future comics more simplistic, new readers would suddenly flock to the company in droves. No new readers arrived, so all it did was piss off their established base.

Maybe it's just me, but TD season 3 was less about the crime and more about Purple Haze's search for justice despite his alzheimer's. No matter where he was in his life (or how far his disease had progressed), he was always trying to do the right thing and bring some sense of closure to the victims. Hell, the final scene of him just silently slipping back into the jungle hits home. Some heroes don't need recognition, they just need closure.

I actually think the attempts to tie-in to previous seasons felt a little tacked on and forced (as minor as they were).

Started watching The X-Files, almost finished with the first season. I caught a handful of episodes when I was a kid but I was too young to appreciate the show back then so I figured I would watch the series proper as an adult. The HD remaster job they did on the show is pretty fantastic so far. I remember reading about how they had to edit out boom mics and shit since it wasn't originally shot in widescreen, but it definitely isn't an abomination like the Buffy "remaster" and this show as amazing cinematography so each episode looks like a movie. The most surprising thing so far is how stupidly-written Scully is in this first season. I think this changes as the show goes on, but goddamn did she make some incredibly stupid decisions in those episodes about her possessed former partner/lover where she wouldn't believe the guy was possessed despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, or the episode with the Native Americans and the werewolves where she stupidly is transporting the obvious suspect, then can't figure out he's turning into a werewolf in the bathroom raising hell as she stupidly tries to pick the lock to get into the bathroom.

The career trajectory of Kevin Smith from the Clerks/Mallrats days to now is insane to look at and I feel like there is potentially a good thesis paper mapping his path to the broader evolution of pop culture from 1990 until now.

Watched Rashomon after many years of hearing about its impact on cinema, and frankly, I'm disappointed. I thought it'd be a puzzle plot, but instead the last version of the events is the correct one (which is actually very close to the bandit's version, so I don't know why the witness said that he lied), and the film's just about human nature. Eh.
Going to watch Ran next, looking forward to it.

BSG establishes in one episode, I think it's near the start of S2, that normal rounds aren't enough to take down the Centurion models, you have to use explosive rounds. That's all fine and you never see a character kill one with normal handheld weapons but they keep going into battle only carrying normal weapons and giving return fire with them. Why? What's the point?

I liked it. It's not as uncanny valley as I expected it to be and the CGI doesn't lose the viewer like some other heavy VFX movies do. I'm glad that Robert Rodriguez got the reins to direct, I feel like a lot of other people would've fucked it up. Would've liked to see Guillermo Del Toro have a chance at a possible sequel. It's not the absolute must see in 3D type movie (like Dredd), but I don't see how it really would've added to the viewing experience minus a scene or two.

I saw it in theatres, its use of 3D wasn't that dramatic even there. Was used best in the opening scene, if I recall correctly, when they're showing the Junkyard and Tiphares and stuff.

As a long-time Alita fan, I thought it was a pretty decent adaptation. Not perfect, and the pacing was a little schizo, but it was an enjoyable film. A sequel could be cool, there's a lot of material for them to work with, but it doesn't feel likely.

>Alita Battle Angel

I watched this for the first time the other day. I have not read the manga or watched the anime OVA. It wasn't a terrible film, but it wasn't that great either. I'm able to forgive it since Robert Rodriguez loves to make his PG and PG-13 movies hokey as fuck. I still remember seeing Spy Kids 1 and 2 as a child. I still enjoyed the movie, and was pretty unbothered the entire time.

Pros
>Action sequences
>World building
>Iron City felt alive and immersive

Cons
>Dialogue throughout the movie was campy
>Movie would have been a lot better without the Alita and Hugo romance subplot
Probably the worst romance subplot I've ever seen if I'm being honest.
>Pacing was off

Make a sequel, make it better, I'll definitely watch it, partially because of that surprise Edward Norton reveal at the end of the movie. He only attaches himself to movies with potential nowadays.

Removing the romance subplot would have made the film so much better. I understand that Hugo was used to drive the plot forward, but the dialogue throughout the movie was so cheesy. The romance subplot didn't make it any better. I read that in the manga, if I'm not mistaken, Hugo is aware of Alita/Gally's affection towards him, but takes advantage of her in order to go to Zalem. I can see how that might be a bit much for a PG-13 audience.

I have a really mixed feeling about it. The advertising and office antics are great, as are most characters. But when the relationship drama drags on I just tune out, especially most scenes with Betty which rarely result in anything significant. The actress is pretty good but she doesn't seem to have much to work with.

>Narcos: Mexico s01e03-6 - El Padrino; Rafa, Rafa, Rafa!; The Colombian Connection; & La Última Frontera

I watched the first two episodes of Narcos: Mexico back in December but didn't have a chance to finish but I'm catching up before season 2. It's pretty good so far and Michael Pena and Diego Luna do good in their roles as Kiki and Miguel being on opposite sides of the law although that dynamic I don't think can compare to Steve & Javier vs. Pablo in the first two seasons of Narcos. Given today's news of El Chapo being sentenced to life in prison, I wouldn't be surprised if the show eventually told the story of his rise and fall as Narcos did with Pablo Escobar.

>Letterkenny s01e04-s03e02

This show has gotten a lot better and it's safe to say it's one of the funniest shows on TV right now. The show's dialogue and use of wordplay and slang is done so hilariously and seamlessly well in particular the opening season's scenes of Wayne alphabetically alliteration. The running gags especially the story off Boots and the Ginger fucking the ostrich, allegedly as Dan always punctuates.

They have decades of comic history to go through and they went with Aztec gods? What a load of horseshit. Also, what a shitty way to kill of Davis. It just feels like really shitty writing to try and skirt around who the villain kills and doesn't even though she has every reason to kill them all because she can on a whim since they have nothing to stop her. Only a couple episodes left in this season, and then next season is the last one, but for a show that only exists as fanservice now for anyone that has stayed invested in it when millions and millions have ditched it, it just feels like someone shit in my mouth.

>Pulp Fiction

Saw it was on Netflix and I hadn't seen the whole film through (just the popular clips) but overall it's better than I had anticipated it would be given its place in pop culture. The film's circular narrative, at the time the film came out, hadn't really been done but it's still pretty effective in getting the audience to pay attention. The dialogue is an instant classic and its contrast with the film's drug use and violence really is the icing on the cake. I'd certainly agree and say it's one of the best films of the 1990s.

Also I rewatched season 1 and am halfway through season 2. I know people like to say the show sucks now but honestly, the early seasons have plenty of clunkers too, way too many episodes trying to be topical where as now it's evolved out of doing Trendy jokes.

Most of the episodes were based on interesting ideas, but they hit some point where it was time to throw the plot in the garbage in order to have a big, stupid fight at the end.

They started to get away from that at the end of the series, but then the series ended.

Monkey Shines is the best monkey themed movie I've seen in a while. Basically a cripple and a super intelligent telepathic monkey form a bond which involves a capuchin murdering people in the most adorable way.

Pop's new original series about a group of trashy ladies living in a trailer park and the situations they get into when one of them wants to get her GED to better her life. Pop has been keeping the show relatively uncensored (with the exception of nudity).

Just watched Salò, and I feel like I fucked up. From hearing people talk about the film, I expected it to be a shock film, the Human Centipede done tastefully, but it was very, very mild, and the contradiction between what I expected and what I saw made me not enjoy the film as much as I feel I would have otherwise. Watching the extra features to see what I missed.

Just finished season 3 of Stranger Things. God the show really is lame, I wouldnt have finished it if not for watching with family. Between the death that clearly was a fake-out and the finale episode running movie length when it had 20 minutes of boring parts it could have cut, it was majorly underwhelming.

Checked out that animated Castlevania Netflix series, had seen some good said about it.
It felt super weird. Like there was something wrong with.. Everything? Kind of like an uncanny valley effect but for movies. Pacing is off, the animation of the movements, the cutting, dialouge. Really weird and empty soundscape.
It acutally reminded me alot of SexualLobsters animation stuff, rechecked it afterwards and it has the exact same queer sounding voiceover.

Been watching X-Files from the beginning, got through the first couple of seasons and am in season 3 now. The season 2 finale, Anasanzi, and the first couple of season 3 episodes tied to it are fucking fantastic. Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose also lived up to the hype. The episode after it, though, called The List was fucking terrible, though. Just a total waste of time of an episode.

Don't. Sons of Anarchy is terrible, juvenile trash with none of the intensity or skill that The Shield had. Kurt Sutter only really works when he has someone to mitigate his worst tendencies.

I'm re-watching the wire again. What a great show. Season 2 isn't even that bad, like yeah a lot of the season's plot was superfluous to the overall plot and it was kind of a side trip, but it wasn't bad. I'm nearing the end of season 3 though and damn, it's a masterpiece.

I got like half way through season 2 years ago and kinda got bored and gave up. I remember really liking it as a kid when I got chance to watch it. I downloaded the full series and plan to give it another go, but I'm worried I'm just gonna get bored again. I don't remember much sticking out from season 1 last time.

>>409246
I also downloaded the Shield and looking forward to watching that again. I remember loving that shit when I watched it all one summer about 8 years ago. I know I'm gonna enjoy it even more now as a 'smarter' viewer.

Had to download the Wire and Sopranos too of course. 2 shows I watched in the same year I did the Shield. Loved them both, but I've forgotten so much about them. Can't wait to exoerience them all again.

Currently watching Euphoria with my gf. 2 episodes in and I'm finding it decent. Just glad I had a pretty sheltered childhood and wasn't a kid in the social media age. I didn't start trying drugs until I was 21 and I've had a lot of fun with them, but the idea of taking hard drugs while I was still in school seems fucked up. I hated school already, couldn't imagine facing that shit battling drugs dependency and just the general toxicity social media and smart phones bring.

Me and the gf will probably get started on the 3rd season of the Handmaid's Tale soon. She's a bigger fan of it that me, but I'm interested to see where it goes. Also got her into watching King of the Hill which is pretty amazing. I watched 4 seasons of it years ago and thought it was hilarious but only watched it as a kid because it was a cartoon. We've had some real belly laughs watching together.

We dusted off the first season of Party Down too. It wasn't as funny as I remember but she really likes it and when Ken Marino is involved I'm always gonna keep watching.

> Euphoria

This show has some of the best art direction I've ever seen on TV. The way they keep jerking you back and forth into slightly less realist styles. The scenes where they're riding bikes and they film them riding through an orchard or something to make it feel claustrophobic and unnatural.The final scene of the series, my god.

I'd say Euphoria is pretty similar to my experience, just condensed. It's more like I saw most of that drama over all of highschool and college, not in a single school year. It comes off really True to me.

You might try out just watching the mythos episodes and leaving the monster of the week episodes behind though there are some really great ones but its a lot to get through if you do it all especially binging it.

>>409252
Check out Rescue Me. Same time frame as the Shield and same network and you would probably enjoy it.

As for crime shows I highly recommend Love/Hate which is a RTE show and really fucking good as well as the Underbelly series/spinoffs/tv movies. I recommend watching S1 of underbelly and then S1 Fat Tony and Co. From there go to the wiki page and it gives a chronological order for the rest of it. Its all based on real people too so its a pretty cool look at the history of Oz/NZ crime. Westside is also a good one and worth checking out.

Sons of Anarchy is shit. There are maybe 3-5 good episodes, everything else is "I love my family, despite working against their best interests." or "I'm a good dad but I ignore my kids all the time." btw, here's Kurt Sutter's wife singing for no good reason.

>>409253
Eurphoria is like Skins if it was made for all the character's parents. It's nothing but nightmare-fuel because it's so accurate when it comes to what teens have to deal with nowadays.

>Letterkenny season 4

This show just doesn't stop at keeping its wordplay and dialogue consistently hilarious. I could totally relate to that scene where Dan, Daryl, Katy and Wayne were talking about LA and saying it in a stereotypical SoCal accent. Having used to lived there, I thought that was clever.

>Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling

This shit fucking ruled and like Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie, It felt like I was a kid again watching the show but now having a much greater appreciation for it as an adult. Really thoroughly enjoyed it and with interesting commentary on nostalgia (and reboots) and the theme of change. Most importantly, they did a good job of handling Ralph's transition of becoming Rachel although Joe Murray did consult GLAAD on that. I fucking lost it when they referenced Spunky's love for mops and then seeing him having ordered a bunch online.

Now gonna binge season 3 of GLOW.

Rockford Files. Don't pass it over because of it's age, it's fucking amazing. Better writing than almost any other show of it's kind because most of the stories were adaptations of crime novels, and not just scripts shit out by underpaid writing teams. The two part pilot episode is a bit weird because some of the characters change, not just actors, but the actual characters, so get a few episodes in before making up your mind on it.

Southland is criminally underrated for a police procedural. It shows LAPD beat cops, rookies, and detectives with little bits about their personal lives and how the job bleeds into it. Cancelled by NBC after the first season then TNT picked it up and it ran for 4 more seasons. It can be fun and light-hearted one moment and by the next breath so tense that your heart threatens to beat out of your chest. Great cast and stellar writing.

Premiere episode wasn't flashy, but that isn't The Terror's style. This season hits close to home because my grandparents were interred in CA during WW2. Still looking forward to how spooky and terrible it'll get tho!

For those of you with AMC Premiere; are they dropping the season all at once or doing the 48-hours early model? I'd love to binge this shit if the option is available.

Also, is it just me or does anyone notice a resemblance between the protagonist, Chester, and Filthy Frank in certain angles?

Got to War of the Cacoprophages and Syzygy in season 3 of the X-Files. Feels like the show is getting a bit too goofy with the completely stupid story of WotC and the goofy dialogue of Syzygy. The crazy principal in Syzygy also has been in like at least two episodes prior, too (he was a scientist in the rocket propulsion episode and he was a bearded fellow in a season 1 episode). These past two episodes also are really laying it on thick with Scully being a stereotypical jealous woman because Mulder wants to get his dick wet (give him a break, he hasn't gotten laid since the vampire episode like in season 1).

Anyways, I'm wondering why such the hard slant to comedy in this season.

Everyone involved has wanted to make a sequel for years. They even had a campaign after it released on blu-ray to try and get it to the top of the charts by asking people to all buy it on a designated day so they could use that to try and get the attention of a production studio to fund the sequel.

At least we have The Raid 2, though.
