I don't think any of their shows allowed it until recent seasons (could be wrong - SoA occasionally?). I agree though, it's always been weird to me how cable networks are cool with violence, death, etc but draw the line at words. Censored Negan on TWD.....


    I'm definitely with you here. How the hell is it OK to show Negan in full detail bash the hell out of people's skulls, yet a swear word is bleeped out?

  • I'm really excited about Iron Fist. A lot of the critics don't like what they've seen so far which makes me want to watch it even more. 6 more days.

  • My husband and I just binge watched this over 2 evenings. I liken it to a very mature R rated Harry Potter. We loved it! BTW, I did not know they could f-bomb on cable TV that is not a premium channel. I have never heard that word on any other cable series on channels not called HBO/Showtime/Cinemax, etc. I guess the f-bombs are allowed on Syfy(Parents be warned).

    Yeah I've been DVRing them
    It's getting better all the time
    One of my must watch , favorite shows now.

  • Support a really funny local comedian, check out and give Jo Koy's new comedy special 5 stars. Also because he paid for this entire production out of pocket, I read over 300k without having anyone lined up to purchase. Netflix saw it, and bought it. So good story.



    My wife and I were at this taping last summer, really funny.

    I also watched both of Chappelle's new specials, really good. Dave's back and just as awesome as ever.

    Cool story, I'll check 'em out.

    The new Chappelle specials are great. I thought the Texas one was a bit funnier, but both of them are quality. Chappelle is a national treasure.

    I finished watching it a couple of weeks ago. I thought overall it was a great show. Seems like it needed about 4 or 5 more episodes for character development though. Then end came a little to fast for my liking.

    Separate note... maybe I missed someone else commenting earlier, but Penny Dreadful is a good one.

    I watched it last night and it was great. I totally forgot about Jo Koy, I used to watch him way back in the day.

  • Not in any particular order, here's the Netflix Originals I love to watch:

    The Fall - Gillian Anderson is such an underrated actress. The show may be too slow for some but it's really quality TV.

    Orange Is The New Black - Great show. Good character exposition, quarky and funny but poignant at times. Some of the lesbian sex scenes seem a bit forced or gratuitous but overall it's a great series and worth watching.

    Black Mirror - Admittedly my review is half-assed...I just started watching the series the other day and have only watched a couple episodes but I am hooked, it's compelling and from what I hear it just gets better and better.

    House Of Cards - I am a big Kevin Spacey fan and this vehicle couldn't be better for him. He plays a greasy, southern politician frighteningly well. The best compliment I could pay this series is that my wife and I could care less about political dramas but this show has us riveted. I think this is a great example of art imitating life in Broadway lights. The salacious nature of some of the under current elements and even the relationship between his and his wife's characters captivates an already intriguing story line.

    Stranger Things - Oh my, what a fantastic treat! Created to look and feel like an 80's supernatural flick complete with the surprising return of the reclusive Winona Ryder, don't be fooled by the corny packaging. This is a total popcorn-engaging thrill ride. Excellent suspense with attention-to-detail throwbacks to one of the best decades in, well, decades! Binge-worthy.

  • It's crazy how many Netflix Originals are dropping each month. Just found a new one, I'm two episodes in and it's pretty good. It's based on a book.

  • Halfway through Black Mirror's second season now. Absolutely love it. Modern-day Twilight Zone. Some seriously well done episodes. I would highly recommend it.

    It's a great show. I think a new season is suppose to drop at some point this year.

    White Christmas with Jon Hamm was probably my favorite episode. San Junipero in season three was great, a very different type of episode. Nosedive (the one about social media) in season three is also great because of how many parallels you can draw from it to our society.

  • Yeah White Christmas was fantastic. Each episode seems to use our obsession with social media and/or technology and thrusts its potential dark side in our faces, i.e. "...centered around dark and satirical themes that examine modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies."

    Looking forward to more binge watching tonight!

    First time I've ever heard a complaint about lesbian sex scenes.

    Not too teeny bopper? 13 Reasons looks interesting, but I wasn't sure if it was more of a teenager show.

    I just started OA, so far I'm digging it.

    I didn't find it very teeny-bopperish at all. It looks that way because it is about a bunch of high schoolers, but it is more of a mystery. Try the first couple episodes and you will know if it is for you.

    The OA is dope. Loved that show. If you are into shows that make you think outside the box, then it's definitely for you. Ending was a bit of a letdown, but maybe you'll like it. Brit Marling is a great actress, she has played similar roles to this before.

  • Netflix just added the second season of The Last Kingdom. The story of a English boy taken from his homeland, raised by the invading Danes and then returns to England. I'll be watching that tonight.

    Hell yeah, I <3 Netflix!

    One of the awesome under the radar shows a couple years ago, was wondering what was up with season 2.
