Watching The Sons of Sam documentary on Netflix. Really good so far after 2 episodes. I honestly don't know much about this story other than the basics so it's interesting to me.

Very interesting throughout.

this is a terrible movie 

Eh, it is what it is. I enjoyed it like I enjoyed that 6 Underground, or whatever it was called, which was a bit better than this one. I’m not paying movie theater prices for it so it was a fun ride.

The recent iteration of The Stand... worth watching?

Meh. Not horrible, far from great. Don't think they'll ever be able to translate this well to the screen.

This got worse and worse as it's gone along. I think we have 1 EP left...the penultimate episode is flat out ridiculously terrible.

Will be interested in your final review.  I want to watch, but I'm assuming it's 5-6 episodes so seems like it would be drawn out.  Why can't anyone make a 2 hour documentary any more?

Yea I watched the first 45 minutes and saw there was a bunch more and never went back. It’s just too much. I agree, make it a tight two.

It's 4 episodes. Really, really good.

We finished the first season of Last Tango in Halifax. It's a good show. A little more family drama than we're used to watching but the characters are all interesting and it's a nice change of pace from our current rewatch of the Sopranos and Deadwood. 

Almost done with season 3. Best one yet. The characters, acting, and writing are top notch, IMO. Season 2 had a bit of a lull but the finale was great. Since then, every episode is great.

Last Tango in Halifax is really a wonderful show. Highly recommend.

Master of None 3.1 was about as fun as a colonoscopy. 

I didn't know it had returned. I did some Googling and read the 3rd season is a radical departure from the first two seasons. Based on your review the changes weren't for the better.

I actually gave up The Stand and didn't watch the last 3 I think. Too bad, love the novel. 

Really into Legion on Hulu (originally ran on FX); different tone than other Marvel properties but I find it wildly imaginative. Bizarre in a fun, inventive way. I've watched a bunch of them twice. Showrunner Noah Hawley also did Fargo and I think he was recently tapped to do a series based on the Alien franchise. Very talented guy.

I watched the first season or two of Legion. I thought the first season was flat out brilliant. I can't even tell you why I didn't keep watching...lack of time I think. Also, iirc, I loved the uncertainty/nebulousness between the mental illness and a bizarro reality. And iirc as well, it became a superhero show, which doesn't interest me much.

For anyone who enjoyed the series Undercover on Netflix, they put out a movie on Ferry's character as a prequel, aptly named Ferry.  I enjoyed it.

it's on Netflix?  same actors?

this ZeroZeroZero is something.  4 episodes in. 

 

and my wife has me watching Bosch on Amazon since she read the books. really terrible, cliched intro of the main character as rebel cop who doesn't take orders from anyone. my Spidey senses tell me this is going to be awful, but she's already 100% in after 2 episodes.

weird seeing Marlo and Daniels from The Wire in it.

Bosch is terrible.

I kept trying because it has its fans here... But your spider senses are accurate.

the "this guy is a rebel! and you can tell by his bad attitude towards management and how he just wantonly does whatever he wants!!" angle came on so thick and blatantly in ep. 1

subtle as a hammer to the face

I agree.  I thought it was done really well and look forward to the last season.

Subtle it ain't. Creative it ain't. Well written or acted...ain't.

But its a cop show, and there are worse cop shows out there. So there's that.

 I also gave up on Bosch after a couple of episodes. It just seems to play out more as a typical TV sitcom cop  show with wooden characters and cliched dialogue than what I expected out of a TV mini-series.

I powered through, but it is exactly how you described.

I watch a lot of bad TV

If we’ve learned one thing over the last year, it’s that rebel cops who don’t play by the rules turn out just fantastic in the real world.

If you haven't watched Mare of Easttown, catch up now. Finale Sunday. It's going to win ALL of the awards.

Huh. I like it, and there's a lot of good- particularly Winslet...but it never genuinely elevated to upper tier for me. And I found this last episode a bit cheap and manipulative in how it was written and directed.

I guess I'm in the minority but I'm done with Loudermilk after 2 episodes. He's a dbag and the druggie girl is annoying af.

It's like Curb your Enthusiasm in that the lead is the unfiltered character that gets to say what most people think, but wouldn't ever say for being considered a jerk.

For some reason that bugged me in Curbed, but not here. Totally enjoying Loudermilk.

I love Curb and Larry is usually right. On this show, as I mentioned earlier, he was wrong at the coffee shop and in the second episode he asked how far away something was and then rails on the guy because he said "as the crow flies" I would have punched him in the face if I was that guy.

A couple of laughs, not enough to keep watching.

So now we're rating a comedy show because of whether it's 'right' or 'wrong' on social interactions?

 

Maybe we need a poll to figure out the 'rightness.'

 

It's a comedy TV show, people.

He's just explaining why he doesn't like the humor, not making some grand objective statement.

I was iffy on it after the first episode. But from the second one on I just felt totally sucked into the world they created like few shows have ever done for me.

Kim's Convenience season 5 is on Netflix June 2.

It's a shame that it's the last season. Sounds like they weren't aware of it at the time too. I hope it ends well.

I like it a lot. Don't know if it's winning anything but I kinda rank it somewhere between Sharp Objects & S1 of True Detective.

Couldn't make it past Ep1 of Sharp Objects. If they stick the landing then I'd put Mare right up with True Detective S1.
