Bingeing Tiger King (Neflix) right now.  Show about crazy people with private zoos that primarily have big cats.  The main character is an eccentric guy named Joe Exotic .  Some crime elements, social media, politics and polygamy involved   Amazing these places are legal.

Starting to drag a bit now, and for sure not a must-watch.

Joe Exotic in the early lead for Quarantine Lockdown hero. Tiger King might be the best thing on Netflix right now.

The Stranger on Netflix was a terrible mess. I feel duped by the positive reviews I saw for it. We regret not bailing after the second episode. 

I liked it, but it could have been better.  Solid 6.5 (7.5 on the corona virus lockdown scale).

Maybe it's a little too much for people now, but I am really liking 12 Monkeys so far.   I am about 4 episodes in and it seems to be really well done.

Any thoughts on the Valhalla Murders yet?

I was bored stiff with the first episode. My wife liked it well enough so she may continue on. Not sure I will.

Has anyone tried the Facebook streaming shows?  There’s a show called Limetown on it that was originally a podcast series which I thoroughly enjoyed.  Curious if it’s been seen by people and their review; hard not to have high hopes considering my appeal to its source and don’t want to be unnecessarily disappointed

Checked out episode 1 yesterday just to see what it was like since I am a big fan of the movie. Was really solid and plan on watching the whole series at some point.

after watching that one episode had to go watch the movie...what a great movie. Love Brad Pitt in the mental hospital scenes.

Watched Bert Kreischer special on Netflix last night.

Never heard of the guy, just wanted to get a bit of humor for the night.  Mission accomplished. 

His bit about purebred dogs had me dying.  :lmao:

Tom Segura has a new comedy special on 3/24 that could be good (on Netflix).

About half way through season 1 The Terror on Hulu (it is an AMC show) and it is very good IMO. Hulu has 2 seasons available and each season has a different storyline.

The first season is a fictionalized account of Captain Sir John Franklin's lost expedition to the Arctic in 1845–1848 with a supernatural element (Wikipedia)

Has he had a bad one yet?  He and Kyle Kinane are 2 of the more recent comics that just kill for me with each new special

Watched a bit of Servant and all of See. former was decent enough (is it m night shalalamadingdong?) But didn't entirely grab me- will have to revisit. latter...I really, really wanted to like- big fan of the genre...even started a thread on it. Not good. 

Wife watched the Morning Show and liked it a lot...I caught a couple eps and agree.

For me the winner was For All Mankind- the alt-history space race show. Really dug this one and felt like I learned about the actual space race along the way...particularly the people involved. ETA...I think I've mentioned it in here.

This is far, far from consensus. It is generally considered to get better as it goes and end as one of the better sci-fi series in recent TV. But if you aren't into the self-referencing/criss-crossing time travel stuff I could see it not being up someone's alley. Don't wanna get into the details of what you liked/didn't like though as almost anything could be a spoiler for someone new to the show

Looking for a recommendation on a 30-minute mindless show. Can be funny, quirky, interesting, whatever. Three shows we really enjoyed that filled this role recently were Silicon Valley, Its the End of the ****ing World, and Explained.
 

We’ve barely watched any other 30 min shows, so pretty much anything is open. I’ve heard good things about Curb your Enthusiasm or Its always Sunny in Philadelphia? Start here or any other recommendations?

I have an older gen Apple TV and For All Mankind is unwatchable for me. The actual stream is messed up. The audio file is wayyyyy out of sync with the video and gets worse  and worse. It is like it is playing at a whole different speed. We’re talking full scenes behind, not just Kung-Fu Theater bad dubbing.

Other shows are OK.

Watched Mythic Quest, it had its moments. Wife watched  Morning Show and really liked it.

Sunny in Philadelphia is a must...you'll either love it or hate it.

I just started watching Black Monday and am enjoying it

I'd check out Parks & Rec, Brooklyn 99, and The Good Place if you are OK with something a little more lighthearted.

I will for sure keep going for a bit.  Not just in here, but podcasts that I seem to be in sync with opinion-wise have held it in high regard too.  

Just the fact that it supposedly had a vision of where it should end and stuck that landing has to make it instantly better than about 80% of shows out there, right? ;)

I used to have that problem a lot but it seems to have gone away recently. I would log in and it was like some Turkish dude binged watched all kinds of crazy shows from over there. Even weirder, I would often have to change the language back to English.....from German!

After some googling it seems to be a rampant issue with no obvious fix other than changing your password. ( I did that and still had issues for awhile).

We've been watching the Picard Star Trek show on the ####### pay CBS thing.

It's a decent ride for fans- buncha cameos and pace moves along pretty good with a decent enough underlying theme (albeit done before). It does feel a little slight- particularly the writing for old man Picard- with swearing feeling forced and added... But overall recommend.

this Dark Side of the Ring program on Vice is pretty good.  particularly the ep about the Von Erich's. 

the kid's careers peaked when i was around that 10 - 13 age and found wrestling to be appointment television. all that i remembered was the storyline that they were some kind of wrestling dynasty but i hadn't thought about them in 30 years.

this was worth watching

Wife really wanted to see Contagion but then got all pissy that it was a pay for streaming option (and we had a weird “why the hell does $3 make a difference?” argument), so she switched to a lesser, free option called Pandemic...OOF!  I’ve been finding and announcing things found on Amazon for $3 since about five minutes in

Mandalorian was pretty good. Not great. Decently entertaining. It actually felt like I was in the Star Wars universe. Hopefully they build on it.

Okeedoke.

I hated the mandalorian. Think Picard isn't tip top, but feels better for me than Mando...even with not great writing, it's far above what they hired some ten year olds to slap together for the SW show.

As a generic, run of the mill sci fi show, Picard is average at best. They basically copied Mass Effect among a lot of other existing franchises for their season long drag it out plot. As a Star Trek show, it's a massive insult to all the fans of TNG and the past series. 

Can't wait for Kurtzman to lose control of Star Trek then maybe we can finally get back to some thought provoking plots instead of dragging out this nonsense they are trying to milk for 10 episodes.

 Netflix emailed me a few months ago because someone from the Philippines logged into my account.  I had an old, common password that I know was on dark web. I had never bothered to change it.  I changed it afterwards to something unique and have had no problems since.
