Anyone have a link to a summary of last season of better call Saul?  Totally forgot what happened.

I found the Wikipedia episode-by-episode synopses to be detailed enough to get me back up to speed.

Pushed the wife through the first couple of episodes of Fleabag. I liked it from the start but it took her until the 3rd and 4th episodes to get into it. All in now. Really good show.

Who doesn't like Tom Hardy pimp walking over and over again through grimy streets in a long coat and top hat set to a gangster lean.

The Witcher news:

The Witcher season 2 cast has expanded again. Following initial claims that Kristofer Hivju could appear in the Netflix series, Redanian Intelligence now reports that the Game of Thrones actor – who played Tormund Giantsbane in the HBO shows – is a confirmed member of the season 2 cast.

The report says that Hivju will portray Nivellen, who appeared in Andrzej Sapkowski's short story “A Grain of Truth”. The alleged confirmation comes via a cast sheet and describes the character – codenamed “Nigel” by the production team – as a "charismatic, witty, and funny man" from an aristocratic family. 

 

 

Will the big woman be there?

It's been mentioned but Narcos Mexico Season 2 is pretty awesome so far (3 episodes in.) It keeps me on the elliptical the entire hour. This show seems to get better and better with each subsequent episode/season.

Do I need to watch Narcos first, or is N:M stand-alone enough?

Narcos Mexico is actually a prequel to Narcos

ETA: At least I was thinking it was. Maybe I've confused myself???

But I thought they referenced Pablo Escobar in the present tense at one point in this season of Narcos Mexico? Again, I guess I'm confused.

I'm too lazy, but a minimal amount of research can figure this out.  Narcos Mexico gives actual dates in the timeline.  The original Narcos has actual events that occur that a simple google search would provide an exact date.  :shrug:

No, they’re all good. I’m just amazed that they were able to move past the original Escobar story and do it so well.

Narcos original was about the rise of Pablo Escobar with some Cali Cartel mixed in as it went along.  

Narcos Mexico crosses timelines and is after Pablos rise but before his fall which was in ‘93 I believe.

This.

Don't skip the first Narcos.

And watch in order- they are sequential in terms of timeline.

Iirc from only having watched S1- I felt he was poorly cast, unless the indecisive/wobbly type was what they were after (I don't know anything about the guy- so maybe he was perfectly cast and really was like that)

We've been watching the first CBS subscription Star Trek while on vacation in Mexico on Netflix...don't think it's available in the US. Quite good stand alone for ST fans. Good acting, action, effects, writing.

All seasons of Narcos are great. 1st season still my favorite. 

If you watch Prime video. Hunters is interesting. Some good actors. Definitely a drama with some legit cultural commentary, but a couple episodes include some silliness that seemed out of place for me. I would recommend it.

@boilerdave if you guys love Alfie/Tom Hardy ...check out Taboo.  Only one season and like Peaky ...it's best with subtitles.  

I’m watching Broadchurch now...with subtitles. I’ll check out Taboo next.

if you need subtitles for Broadchurch, you're going to need the enhanced subtitle package for Taboo.

Can't stand the young kid in The Hunters. Hate him. And he's the main storyline. So that's a problem.

Yeah, Shetland's pretty good. Lots of atmosphere, and Tosh is oddly attractive.

Started watching Hannibal on Prime last week.  Really enjoying it so far.  It takes some leaps with the logic for sure (Graham can somehow look at a crime scene and know impossible things) but I'm loving Mads Mikkelsen in the Lecter role.  Oh and Dr. Bloom 😍

Watched "Living with myself" over the weekend. Enjoyed it. I am a big Paul Rudd fan, he was twice as good as he usually is.

He does get a little less annoying as the series moves along. A diverse team. Someone for everyone to like.

Other than Roxy, i think they all look thinner on the chessboard.

One of the best broadcast network shows of the last 20 years. Loved it. So good. You're in for a treat as you work through season 1, this show does things I've never seen other shows even try.

I still cant believe that show was on network TV.  Pretty damn gory.

It took me a couple of episodes to acclimate to it. I'm glad I did as Sarah Lancashire really nails a complicated role.

I found Ragnarok enjoyable enough, some bad dubbing aside. Main character’s face looks just like a He-Man action figure, too, but I zipped through the whole season in a day.

I liked it, hoping for a season 2.
