Just started Life on Our Planet on Netflix. Might be the most visually stunning thing I've ever seen on TV.
The 3 Planet Earth series are likewise stunning and so well done.

I haven’t watched the series yet, but just bought the 4k Blu Ray version of A Perfect Planet which is in the same vein simply because I know the picture on disc will be even better than streaming and I can’t wait to see the amazing cinematography.
 
Anyone know if there's going to be a second season of Dexter: New Blood? I've had it on my list of things to watch but if more is coming I may just hold off until it's all completed.
It’s one and done. There was some speculation that they might make another season, but Showtime opted not to pursue more. I have heard some talk about a Dexter prequel, but that wouldn’t have anything to do with New Blood.
 
I don’t think I’ve seen the show Bodies (on Netflix) mentioned in this thread. I’m 6 episodes in of the 8 episode limited series and am enjoying it.
Without giving much away I’ll say if you are into time travel movies and shows this series is time traveling to the power of 4.

We tried it but it didn’t capture my wife’s attention. Might give it another shot
 
My wife and I have been watching the British show Unforgotten on Amazon Prime. Just finished the second season and we’ve liked it so far.

It’s a cold case show with a smaller amount of episodes each season, but does a great job of weaving a bunch of storylines together as they reveal more about the mysteries as the investigations go on. Solid show so far.
 
Always enjoyed The Crown, one of my favorite shows in the last decade, always meticulously written and produced and then oh my God it goes right off the rails in the season 6 mid-season finale. Can’t believe how stupid that was. If you saw it you know.

Added to my never ending watchlist. It sounds like something Mrs. Eephus would like

The seasons take a couple episodes before the prices start to come together and you see how the different characters come into play so it’s a little bit of a slow build.
 
Reacher Season 2 drops on Amazon Prime next Friday. First 3 episodes then weekly after that.

Season 1 was mostly from the first book Killing Floor, season 2 is going to be from one of the middle books, Bad Luck and Trouble. Not one of my top 5 but a fan favorite and not one already done by Tom Cruise.


Nothing award winning but some good old fashioned popcorn *** whooping.

Wait... I think I watched this. Really, really... Bad. But fighting and bullets and stuff, so.. ok.

I enjoyed S1 and looking forward to this new one. I really liked the Roscoe character from S1 and was disappointed that she would not be in this one. That said, I see Serinda Swan is in this season so that's a pretty good replacement. (y)

Season one was just pure entertainment. Campy and cheesy, but in a good way. Also Willa Fitzgerald gives me the jumpy&quo.

:yes:
 
Just finished S2 of Justified. I like it well enough but it's not great. Good enough to keep going though.
Finished Season 3 last night. Best one so far, imo. I like how each season seems to have a single main story with side stories running through them all, somewhat similar to Dexter. I still wouldn't call it a great show and I'll never watch it over again but it is enjoyable enough for a first run through.
 
Halfway through Obliterated on Netflix. Pretty entertaining and some gratuitous nudity :ph34r:
I finished ep4 last night. It's a fun watch if you turn your mind off for a bit. I do chuckle a fair bit while watching so not regretting it. Sauna scene was 🔥 Took me a bit to realize the bad guy is Gale from BB.
Finished it today. The first half is standard action movie level unrealistic but the 2nd half gets pretty cartoonish. Still entertaining enough though. Anything with Vegas as a backdrop makes it seem better :laugh:
 
need new content

luckily, sports are good in December/January because it's been pretty barren on the movies/show front
 
Just finished Squid Game the Reality game show contest on Netflix. It was decent. Players get eliminated but don’t die, until there’s one left who wins $4,560,000

I finished last night. It held my attention enough. Lots of silly and many convenient things happen that are pretty unrealistic but I don't regret finishing it. Has the usual twists and turns, gruesome deaths, gratuitous nudity (I guess that's not all that common any more) and, of course, useless FBI guys. For anyone who might care to know, we saw (.) (.) from 3 of the 4 female leads and 2 of the males showed their junk (although pretty sure 1 was a prosthetic) 🌭
 
Started watching Suits on Netflix. Not a bad show but I can see it getting tiresome binging it with the same formula happening every episode.
Totally what an average day in a law firm looks like...




:wall:

I tried watching this recently. Made it about 20 minutes before turning it off. Usually I don't care if the legal stuff isn't right (see, e.g., parts of "Succession"), but this one was just too much. I burst into laughter when they introduced the guy as "our best closer," as if that were a position. Then the "closer" proceeded to curse out and trick his client into doing something, and I think it was at that point that I just couldn't.

I recall that scene and it's where I lost any interest in it too (which, IIRC, was on the heels of them hiring a guy to practice law without a law license).

I just can't do Suits and the Netflix series version of Lincoln Lawyer. They're just way too much nonsense.

Next I suppose you are going to say hospitals aren't actually run like Grey's Anatomy and House and that being a CSI isn't like it is on all those CSI series or being a cop isn't like it is on the 50 different cops shows.

Similarly I hated that show “Ops” about the rogue COO. Those guys totally didn’t understand liability insurance and completely overestimated the sex appeal of a NYS payroll report.

I'm a journalist and I have a hard time watching TV shows and movies about newspapers/journalism. The only one I really liked was The Post, and that was mainly because it was based on a true story and the events in the movie really did happen.

Guys, touche, but you'd be genuinely shocked how many clients or potential clients think it works the way it does on TV. And so it's just annoying to know that there are shows out there that perpetuate these myths and misnomers that I have to waste time dispelling.

You guys are giving me heartburn.

Just assume that pretty much any TV/movie lawyer would be disbarred for what they do.

Now, my above comments notwithstanding, A Few Good Men is outstanding. The conversation Cruise has with his client when his client bitches about the really good plea offer is, while hyperbolic (note: I have actually once thrown my briefcase against a wall during a similar conversation where my client was facing literally 20 years if convicted and I got him a misdemeanor with no jail and just unsupervised probation), fantastic. And, I could totally see young energetic lawyer doing something similar to "strenuously object[ing]." In fact, IIRC a prosecutor in a trial of mine once "strenuously objected" and my co-counsel and I had to hold in our laughter.

A Few Good Men (for a glimpse into what it's actually like to do criminal law - though just assume a lawyer has >50 cases instead of just the one Cruise has) and My Cousin Vinnie (for accurate procedure and evidence) are the two exceptions to the general rule that TV/movie portrayals are wholly unrealistic.

ETA: A Time to Kill is good for courtroom presentation by a lawyer and for highlighting some of the moral issues. That said, the defense was basically jury nullification and should have been barred as, by law, the Defendant should have been found guilty.

"Spotlight" was a pretty good portrayal of real-life reporting. "The Paper" was a long time ago but was fun. "A clipboard and a confident wave will get you into any building in the world."
