Great, great series. Found it hard to believe Ross Gellar as a hard #### army officer tho

Yeah, but he was also a sniveling petty jerk and I bought in. ūüėÉ

Now the Jimmy Fallon appearance was like, "Woah, what the heck?" and took me out of the experience for a minute.

UndercoverÔĽŅ - I'm halfway through season one of two. It's subtitled which I will only watch it if I'm really digging the show, have probably watched give or six shows/ movies total that were subtitled. So far really likingÔĽŅ it. By the name you can tell what it's about. Set in Germany and a few other parts of Europe. There's a little English ÔĽŅsprinkled in so that's niceÔĽŅ.

we're watching this now and really like it.

We started Ep 1 of The Third Day on hbo, but tired out before the end.

Is it worth watching? I was liking Jude Law's performance, but it was feeling a bit too overtly Wickerman to want to continue.

Anybody?

What about I May Destroy You? Watched a couple eps of that and it mostly makes me feel old and annoyed, even though I like the acting and music. Young people behaving in self destructive ways...not sure if I'm supposed to be laughing at this, ala Fleabag, or feeling bad for them (I don't). It's kind of in-between, and as a result doesn't really work for me.

This one was more background noise for me as my wife watched it while I read.... but Netflix's The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel is dull, excessively long, and exploitative about a young woman who committed suicide, but who is treated a bit like a MacGuffin for conspiracy theorists to put their :tinfoilhat:on.

Of course, it is the number one show on Netflix now (and my wife liked it), so what do I know? :shrug:

Yeah, wasn't a fan.  Agree with the bolded for sure.   I thought it was obvious what happened from the start (without knowing anything about this story whatsoever).  The big "reveal" in the final episode was pretty obvious, IMO.  If anything, it was interesting that some real serial killers stayed there.

My wife and I finished watching The Third Day, but only because it was only 6 episodes. Good, not great. In hindsight there is too much other great TV to watch to justify spending even 6 hours on this.

We felt the same way as you about "I May Destroy You". Not a comedy and it is difficult to feel bad for the characters. IMO we are probably the wrong demographic for this series. Due to the lingo/slang they use there was some "What did they just say?" between my wife and I even with close captioning on.

agree.  if it wasn’t at that hotel, it wouldn’t be much of a story.  2 episodes worth of stuff stretched into 4.

We've jumped to The Outsider, w Jason Bateman...stephen king. Feeling very stephen king, but so far in a good trying to keep up connecting the dots way after 2 eps.

Although I had problems with the ending in the compound(no reason for what she did), I still thought episode two of Clarice was really good and like it so far. :thumbup:

Yeah...Morbid was the only redeeming part of the story. The story was either the history of the hotel or the way internet sleuths ruin lives but not both. It was a mess.

Tried The Crew on Netflix, a Kevin James sitcom about a NASCAR team. Not funny at all. :thumbdown:

How many episodes did you watch? I thought it was pretty funny myself. I think this is a case where if you like Kevin James, it’s the normal schtick. If you don’t like him, this will not change your mind.

I only watched the first one. Wasn't a fan of Kevin James in the first place, but the show was just bad all around.

I didn’t mind it at all, enjoyed watching a light hearted comedy. They seem more rare these days. I’d definitely watch another season. I would put it in the same category as Ted Lasso, a nice break from the reality of 2020 and now 2021. Ted Lasso is definitely better, but this was still enjoyable and had some pretty funny moments.

I though I liked Kevin James because I really enjoyed King of Queens, but I think I just liked Leah Remini more than I already realized. I will give The Crew a shot however.

WHOA.  You've really got me thinking that I'm a Remini fan myself...because I loved KoQ, but all his movies (Paul Blart, Zookeeper, the cage fighter one) just fell really flat for me.  Grownups was hilarious but I think it was a case where everyone in that cast is so funny that he's elevated with them.  Now I gotta give The Crew a shot dangit...

Finished watching 2 seasons of Trapped via Netflix. It's an Icelandic show, crime procedural type thing. Pretty good, season 1 is better than season 2. Random aside: It's great to see people who look a bit more like average people and not typical U.S./British t.v./movie stars in a show.

We saw that back when it first dropped. It's no Fortitude, but still decent. And agree about the aside.

The Crew was meh - not as bad as everyone is saying but its not great.  I watched the first season - it had some laughs.

I think the sitcom = laugh track threw me off on a netflix show

Agree on the laugh track, just a :loco: add..

 Watched the first two episodes.. Not bad, not great but good enough that I'll watch the rest.

James was funny in King of Queens because he hadn't gotten so over the top yet with his shtick.  But yes, Remini was the real reason to watch the show.

Started Halt and Catch Fire tonight.  I liked the first episode, but can't say yet if I liked it enough to invest 40 hours in the show.

 

It's worth it. The whole thing- writing, acting, scope- grows quickly as it progresses. Very worth the watch, and iirc, informative from a quasi historical perspective.

Started watching Titans on HBO Max. DC Universe show about Teen Titans characters 

Not terrible 

If you are enjoying season 1, stick with it cause 2 is way better.  
 

the guy that plays Hawk is star material.  He’s the new jack reacher and will probably crush it in that show

I just watched the first season of Flack on Prime.   Anna Paquin and Lydia Wilson are fantastically aweful people but you love them anyway.  I enjoyed it, several laughs.  Only 6 eps so a quick binge.

Thanks because the last few episodes of season 1 were hot garbage
