Whoever invented the skip intro button, we salute you

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 grea

There was a marathon on one of the side channels for new year's of NewsRadio. Vastly under-appreciated comedy. If you've never seen it, seek it out. It deserves to be spoken of among the others you've

I made it about 15 minutes into The Crew before stopping. I like Kevin James well enough but didn't get a single laugh through half an episode. Need at least a good chuckle in that time.

Enjoyed the first four of this series. Didn't know S5 was out, thanks. 

I wonder if they're showing Covid life on the show or if they'll ignore it.

No big laughs..  but did chuckle at his ineptness using the phone...

Watched 3 episodes of Titans on HBO max- not feeling it so far but will give another episode or 2.

Started watching Bloodline with my wife- 4 episodes in and we're on the hook

Just finished both seasons of Titans.  Not great, but kept my interest

Started watching “tell me your secrets” on prime. Kind of liking it so far.

About 6 episodes in.  hard to describe but i've gotten goosebumps and hair standing up on back of the neck feelings with the underlying theme of evil that this one has.

Couple things on Hulu I don't think have been mentioned yet:

"Staged" , 6 episode BBC show, essentially made via Zoom calls. The back and forth between David Tennant and Michael Sheen is quite funny.

"In and of Itself", hard to describe. A 90 minute show filmed in a small NYC theater, a one-man monologue with elements of magic.

I can't say enough how unexpectedly moving this was. My wife suggested it, and the rest of us (me and my 10th-grade daughter and sixth-grade son) were like "uh sure I guess," but it was really, really well done. One of the best things we've watched in months.

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Crazy good movie. Emphasis on the crazy word. 

Sam Rockwell is really great in this. George Cooney however, cannot act

Definitely a story that I'd love to able to see proven as true. Even partially. Given Hollywood's tendency to maybe not a good story get in the way of the truth, Harris' rather unique personality and that he never really confirmed or denied before he died, I guess we'll never know. 

 

ETA: Wrong thread, sorry. Meant to put this in the movie thread not here. Really good movie, although if you don't remember any of the shows (especially the Gong Show and it's quirky host) it may not resonate

It wasn’t part of the first episode.  Might get through a few more tonight.

One of my best friends sent me a text a couple weeks ago essentially saying, "drop everything and watch this."  I dropped Hulu a year ago and am settled in on a different provider, so might have to do a week trial or maybe sign up for a month.

I Care A Lot on Netflix.

Two thumbs up for some good fun, good acting, script-flipping drama.  

Man the premise of this movie had me so aggravated...

Sadly, it is not too far-fetched.  While clearly fictional from top to bottom, the premise is very real.

Same here. Almost turned it off as it was just making me angry. Was pretty good but would've preferred a totally different ending.

I would have never watched this if my wife hadn’t selected it, but I’m glad I did. Good stuff.

Just binged "Behind her Eyes" on Netflix over the weekend. It's interesting but I wouldn't recommend rushing to watch it. I'm glad they limited it to six episodes. 3.5/5. 

This isn't really a spoiler and is a mere description of what to expect, but even that is a bit spoilerish so...

[spoiler] The show has a sort of Gone Girl, You, The OA vibe to it. There's a pretty big twist at the end, although I'll say 1) I saw it coming; and 2) I think it actually hurt the storyline rather than helped. In other words, I don't think the story "earned" the payoff/twist. Lastly, the show will hit on a touch of fantasy/supernatural which, again, isn't really something that the show earns as it isn't really explained. So, yeah, good/interesting thriller with a twist that may or may not leave you feeling unsatisfied or cheated at the end. [/spoiler]

Uh how do the spoiler tags work now? Did I screw that up?

The penis drawing one is hilarious! I started watching Season 2 but didn't get too far. I should give it another shot.

Didn't know there was a season 2. I also really liked season 1. I'll have to check it out.

Just watched it. It's pretty good. I can see how some love it. It's certainly worth a watch and it's hard to describe. That said, I wouldn't call it the most amazing thing out there like some have.

Binged a few last night and also about 6 in.

One of the better new shows imo.

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, but the fact that it's the real horror hotel from AHS and other movies made it interesting to learn it's history.

I also enjoyed the part about Skid Row and learning its history, too. 

But I agree with @Don Quixote who said it was both long and kind of dull. My wife and I had the same take and were pretty disappointed in the lack of any real payoff.

Well that’s an understatement.  It is fantastic. 

I really wanted to like the show I love Eugene Levy I love Catherine O'Hara I just couldn't get into it after the first season 

Maybe I need to revisit it
