Hulu ordered a pilot for this a couple years ago, but eventually passed.  Netflix - "We'll do it."  

If they do it right, they'll have at least 4 or 5 seasons of quality material. Hopefully, they keep it adult level and don't try to smooth the rough edges for a younger, family audience.

started Succession.  Is this supposed to be a parody of something or satire or are they being serious?

Some of the stuff is over the top but I still liked the show.

Succession is the best show out there, IMO.  But I don't watch anything with monsters or ghosts or make-believe so I need shows that are actual dramas which limits my net.

Don't F*** with Cats was crazy.  What a wierd, wild world we live in.

From my limited viewing, there were more monsters in succession than most shows. Not a fan as any kind of interesting or relevant human drama.

It’s good writing and good acting. I just can’t get behind the story line.  Give me a hint of a protagonist.  If season 1 finishes better I might give S2 a try.

I like it enough to watch, but I don’t understand what those who say it’s the best thing on TV see in it. To each their own.

Season 4 was bad, 3 was ok, but the first 2 were superb.  But, I'm a hedge fund guy, so.....

Billions at least shifted the rooting interest, even if it didn’t last.  It’s almost like in Succession they want everyone to give up and go play in traffic.

Watched most of "October Faction" last night.  Have a few episodes left.   It's an interesting premise, presented in a mediocre way.   Should have been 6-8 episodes for the first season.  Lots of filler.

We've been watching it. Like SyFy and the CW met on a blind date. But we're still watching, so not all bad

Did you keep going with it?

We finished last night...it somehow got worse as it progresses. Some of the acting is terrible and  most of the writing is awful...although it could be editing. Things are happening and said that just don't work- from how they're resolving scenes to how and what characters are saying to eachother...stuff just doesn't make sense. It's weird, because there's definitely a budget in place, but from the writing and acting it feels extremely cheap. This is one that can be avoided.

Did we just become best friends? I just can't get into anything with dragons, ewoks, superpowers, etc.

I definitely do. Except for Greg, I think everybody is cheering for Greg.

I'm also rooting for a Karolina sex scene. I'd settle for at least some more screen time.

Delhi Crime- crime drama based on the infamous gang rape case in India. Mercifully, the 7 episodes focus on the police chase than the events on the bus. Season 2 will focus on another case.

Who Killed Little Gregory- documentary about a 4-year old French boy who goes missing and is found dead in a nearby river in 1984. A tad too long (which Netflix documentary isn't?) and they sort of spoil things at the start of episode one. 

The Stranger- British thriller miniseries based on the Harlan Coban novel of the same name. Not dreadful by any means but feels like a Gone Girl knock-off.

Uncut Gems- the best Sandler film.  I know that isn't saying much but really liked him in this. The story isn't anything new but liked everything about this movie.

Die Ontwaking- this is the  blurb for movie: An inexperienced murder detective joins a desperate search for a deranged serial killer who possesses a deep obsession with young women's skin. Takes place in South Africa and has a Psycho meets Silence of the Lambs vibe. Worth a watch if this is your thing.

The Two Popes- Anthony Hopkins and Johnathan Pryce star in this one. As expected , great performances from the two leads. Dragged a bit in spots but I liked it more than I thought I would.

Starting Chang's "Breakfast Lunch & Dinner" as his follow up to "Ugly Delicious". It's a bit like Bourdain's no reservations, I guess, in that there is travel and food but it's just not nearly as good. Chang is capable of insights - "Ugly Delicious" was full of them - but he's not doing anything interesting. Seth Rogen taking him around Vancouver and into the food scene should have been a damn layup. Instead, it's a bore.

Chang is interesting but his bias towards Asian food gets so old after a while.  

My favorite current travel/food show is Somebody feed Phil.  Patiently waiting for the new season.

This is very misleading.  S4 is the final season, but the rumors are that it will be split into 2 halves with a break in between.

I don't see what the difference is. Two parts or two halves?

I'm finishing up a binging of Animals on HBO. Its consistently hilarious through 3 seasons.

I went looking for opinions online and see that most people disliked it, many absolutely despised it, and HBO cancelled the show.

I'm not especially interested in food/travel genre, frankly. I thought there was a lot of potential in Chang's take on "food as culture" and the questions it raised in "Ugly Delicious". His bias towards Asian food is obvious but well earned.

I love that HBO Max will feature a curated list of classic film titles, refreshed each month by the folks at Turner Classic Movies; it’s not quite FilmStruck, but close enough.

 

I was just reading an article about HBO Max, and I didn't know this was a feature.   I will for sure be on day 1.  

@Ilov80s this was the quote I was talking about.

Oh man... I saw it up and listed on my news feed, so just posted it but obciously didn't link the story as I should have. 

Now *poof* ... Can't find any reference at all, other than that they've already shot S3. No mention anywhere of releasing it. 

Sorry for the confusion, friends.

Watched The Witcher over the last couple of weeks. It was o.k. to good, not great. I had problems with how quickly they'd move character development, plot points and relationships along. I figure it's a function either of the source material doing that, or just not having enough episodes to develop them more convincingly. Many of the events in the final episode just didn't feel earned to me. I think I liked the dragon episode the best.

I'll probably watch the next season when it comes out.
