Lupin - I watched the first two episodes over the weekend. I'm definitely in. Its a heist series with a guy who is an exceptional thief. Who doesn't like that? Its very well done. Its set in Paris. It would be the perfect show except ... its in French. I have nothing against the French - I just generally like to be on my computer when I'm watching tv. And with subtitles - you obviously have to pay attention.

But I will stick with it. Its worth it.

There's an option to have English dubbing.  Of course then the mouths are out of sync w/ the actual words you hear, but it's not bad.  

We watched the first episode over the weekend and will continue.

Wife and I watched it with the English Dub - definitely setting up a 2nd half to the season, at least that was our take on it. We enjoyed it. Not quite Money Heist good, but still good enough that I think we watched it in one day.

Just finished binge watching Yellowstone.

1st season I felt was solid. 

Liked the 2nd season a lot.

3rd season was a letdown. 9 and 1/2 episodes of meh and then action in the final 6 minutes.

Started watching Yellowstone.....eh.  It's okay.  Will stick with it, but it's got a lot of silliness for me to overcome.

I enjoyed the cops' perspective in Night Stalker and also liked how they roped in the journalists.  

I thought it a bit odd that the San Francisco cop just nonchalantly admitted to punching an informant (for lack of a better word) in the face to get him to tell him who the Night Stalker was.  I mean, I always believed that cops were physically beating suspects to coerce testimony, but I thought it was against our rights and stuff.  This guy was just like "nah, I was going to punch the man out if he didn't tell me" after admitting to punching him in the face once.  

What a sick MoFo Ramirez was.  And yet, women loved him!  I could live 15 more lifetimes and never understand the fascination some women with have with serial killers.  Ted Bundy had fans - FANS - in the courtroom during his trials.  He got married on death row and had a baby (why are we letting guys on death row get married and have sex again?).  Ramirez had dozens and dozens of soft core porn pictures and letters sent into him by women - some of them hot!  How?  Why?  What is happening?

Same here. Struggling with the first few episodes of this and the new Cranston show.

I've officially hit the point where I don't want to start any more new shows that aren't completed. Waiting for a new season is the worst, especially when there's 8 shows you're waiting for. Big fan of mini-series lately for this exact reason.  Gonna give Night Stalker a go starting tonight.

I do enjoy the scenery - well most of it.  And the blonde can be fun to watch when she is owning fools.  But there's quite a bit that makes me just roll my eyes.  

And while I think Casey's wife is incredibly attractive, she might be the worst actress I've seen on screen in a long long time.  My word....

She's even worse in the latest season of Fargo.  It's tough to fathom.

The writers haven’t done her character any favors either.

Watching “The Most Dangerous Animal of All” on Hulu.  It is a documentary on a guy who authored a book about how he went looking for his birth father and then believed he was actually the Zodiac Killer.  I’ve always been fascinated by the Zodiac case so it’s been an interesting watch so far.  
 

 

Monster: The Zodiac Killer podcast is pretty interesting if you wanted to hear more

I've been like this for ages.  Won't watch anything until it's done...unless it's "Better Call Saul."  I made an exception.

Any new streaming series that looks interesting I tend to wait for at least 2 seasons, sometimes 3 before starting them.

Series that, IMO, are worth watching even though they are not officially "over" yet are WentWorth, Ozark and The Last Kingdom :thumbup:

Protocol question.  Should Netflix movies be discussed in this thread or the movie thread?

Wife and I watched The White Tiger on Netflix last night and it was entertaining.  It's no Slumdog Millionaire, but I thought it was pretty good overall.  My only complaint is that I didn't really get the narrating/emailing to the Chinese Premier piece.  They could have told the same story without that and it would have flowed much better IMO.

Wife and I just added HBO Max. Started watching this little known show, think it's called Game of Thrones or something. Guess it's based on a book. Almost through the first season, which has been great. Really like the Sean Bean character. Can't wait to see how his story unfolds over 8 seasons, which I'm sure just get better and better...

Oh I thought you were talking about the other convict.  I liked the Indian character.

I watched this series, Surviving Death on Netflix. It was ok I fast forwarded through a bunch of it. But the story about a kid that is believed to be the reincarnation of a pilot killed in WWII was really freaky. He just knew way too much about it. 

The show could have been better if they had more examples and didn't focus so much on particular stories, especially the séance stuff. Spent too much time on that.

Just got Hulu again.  Watched 11.22.63.  Thought it was good.  Worth watching for anyone who has ever had any interest in the JFK assassination.  Nothing great, though.

Wife and I started Handmaid's Tale.  We tried once before but only go through one episode.  I think at the time we weren't in the mood for something so bleak/brutal/depressing.

I've never seen Band of Brothers, so started that on HBO Max.  Halfway through episode one, I thought David Schwimmer was going to ruin the series for me, but the way his character played out, he was perfect for the role.

We punted on Handmaid after season 2. My wife was crying almost every episode. Just didn’t see any redeeming value in keeping on with it.

Schwimmer isn’t in many episodes. You really get into the nitty gritty in episode 2. IIRC, originally the first 2 episodes were aired together when it first premiered. One of the best mini-series ever IMO.

Starting to get that way too. Netflix and Amazon are really bad about cancelling stuff after only one or two seasons that I like. :sadbanana:

It can be catch-22 though.  If too many people take the approach of waiting to start it, and, as a result, not enough people watch it, then that guarantees that it won't be renewed for a subsequent season.

I tend to agree - I watch it at least once or twice a year.   I think I'm going to give "The Pacific" another watch, don't think I've watched it since it originally aired

Tell me about Wentworth.  I'd never heard of it until one coworker recommended it about 3 months ago, and I'd completely forgotten it until I saw your post.  The only review he really gave was "it's OITNB but in Australia and way better".   Accurate?

Much.. MUCH better storyline then OITNB..

In fact we gave up on Orange after season 2.. Wentworth has been great at :shock: most series wouldn't even think of in regards to character lifelines..

In short Wentworth >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>OITNB

I would encourage people to watch this, especially the first and last episodes. I liked that it wasn’t tied to religion in any way. Agreed the physical medium stuff in episodes 2-3 was the worst part.

I thought the reincarnation episode wasnt going to be good but it was really interesting. Still thinking about James 3 and all he was saying. The other kid was a bust when he went to visit the family members...lol

Yeah that was too bad. He had forgotten most things by that age plus seemed nervous. Really makes you think/hope though.

They shouldn't have put him in that situation. It was clear he was losing the memories by then.

Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman on SCI is pretty freaking great, 

 

Especially if you partake. 

Dude....check out “Off the air” on HBO Max.  It’s an Adult Swim show and I’m pretty sure it was created for such a purpose...

I can’t believe that scumbag journalist was just gonna report on the shoe print leak like that.  And Diane Feinstein oooofff. What a moronic thing to do. 

I thought the detective was just as bad, complaining about identifying the perp publicly without giving them a chance to bring him in.  Dude was in custody within 24 hours because civilians got the drop on him.  Even in hindsight, he wished they could potentially let more people fall victim just so they could be the heroes.

Two thumbs sideways for Lupin.  Entertaining through the full 5 episode season, definitely worthwhile, but nothing particularly brilliant, no new ground broken in this classic heist story.

 

Your lupin or your life!

 

I've seen that one already.
