  • I'm halfway through Punisher and I love it. Kid I agree on the Homeland Security woman, its the one character that doesn't seem to fit really.

  • Finished up Godless last night, really enjoyed it. Highly recommended for anyone who digs westerns...........and wouldn't be surprised if Jeff Daniels is nominated for an Emmy, he kills it as the bad guy.

  • Punisher- Pretty good series overall. But villain is a bit weak imo.

  • Finished Season 2 of Stranger Things and agree with the majority. I loved it. Sure there are always nuances to nitpick but overall I thought it was great. Looking forward to S3!

    And David, yeah that sucks about House of Cards but I agree with you...S5 was underwhelming as you can clearly tell they are running out of rich plot to keep the Underwoods in power. Just a damn shame about Spacey. Always loved him as an actor.

    I enjoyed it as well, but there was potential for a hilarious line that they missed. Daniels was talking about his trip out west that they set up perfectly to tie into Dumb and Dumber and they didn't take it. Something about making the trip out on the back of his horse, but as he was delivering the line my brother and I looked at each other. I said "moped" and he said "sheepdog" at the same time.

    Ozark is good, but nowhere near IMO Breaking Bad........which is what most people are comparing it to.

    Which I know is unfair, but I do recommend Ozark. Interesting premise and locale.


    Just finished Ozark and enjoyed it very much. Looking forward to season 2. Interesting to read others impressions of the show. I didn't like the first episode. I thought they raced through it and almost didn't want to watch the next episode. I liked the story and the characters, but felt they didn't justify and flesh out enough of why things were happening. At the time I said Vince Gilligan would have made 3 episodes out of it and I would have been good with that.

    Had a few issues with the ending but won't discuss in mixed company.
    Russell has some stats that aren't Superb? Ow! Love his balls anyways!

    Yep, Ozark suffers from some lazy plot devices and ham fisted writing. To get to the next plot turn, a LOT of too easy and uncharacteristic things happened..............for no other reason then they didn't know how to advance the story.

    Still enjoyed Ozark, but it's nowhere near the insane writing of Gilligan and Breaking Bad.

    I did not enjoy Defenders very much, thought the writing was super lazy and contrived, like they were just going through the motions. I much prefer the stand alone character series. I don't care if they do another season.

    I would like to recommend Atypical though, REALLY good new series. Reminds me of the John Hugh's movies, some very honest, clever and funny writing.........which is hard to find these days. Not easy to write honest dialogue between teenager to teenager, and teenager to parent. Great cast, highly recommended, great for the wifey and kids too (older kids).



    Just started this last night, I'm enjoying it.

  • Me and the wife enjoyed 'Paranoid'.

    It's an 8 part UK crime drama that evolves into something much bigger, go check it out!
