    *Approved*

    You guys watch The Fall on BBC/Netflix. Great googly moogly Anderson is hot in that, LOTS of tight blouses and skirts.

    I recommend the show itself, really good...........but if you're a fan of Anderson, it's a slam dunk must watch.

  • Okay I decided to keep going with Lost In Space. It is typical Netflix "Give it a chance" and after drudging through up to the 3rd or 4th episode I finally got to to the rhythm and heartbeat of the show.

    It's actually very entertaining. Sure there's cheesy scenes but the acting is actually decent. Love the production, there's clearly money behind this reboot.

    A good series to watch with the kiddies if they dig sci-fi. It went from a weak 2 star in the first two episodes for me to a solid 3 stars by episode 6.

  • Just finished Evil Genius. WELL worth the binge. Only 4 episodes. Absolutely stunning. I remember the event (Pizza Bomber from 2003) but only from a surface media level. The story behind it is incredibly compelling, tragic and a mystery still remains. Chalk this one up to "you simply can't make this stuff up."

  • Evil Genius is next on my list, after I finish trudging through 13 Reasons Why season 2, which is considerably less enjoyable than season 1.

    New season of The Toys That Made Us is up. Blasted through that with the quickness.

    There's a new doc on Funko, a Snohomish County based toy company that skyrocketed to the big times over the last decade or so. I'm sure some of you are familiar. My sister worked there back when they were just in a little office park in Lynnwood (damn her for quitting that job!), now they've taken over a big block of downtown Everett. Good look at the story of that company and a pretty impressive line-up of celebrities/personalities they got to talk about their products. Worth a watch if you're into that sort of stuff.

    We're four episodes into the 2nd season, and so far it's pretty meh.

    13 Reasons was a perfect self contained one season story, I haven't seen any reason to continue the story..........maybe it'll get better idk.

    I think it's silly that they have made her a ghost that can communicate with the main guy.

    How else do you incorporate the main character so you can have an unnecessary 2nd season?

  • This thread turned a little creepy. I'm sure the main girl is of age. Most these characters that are suppose to be HS kids are almost 30.

    I can't recommend Killing Eve enough. It's on BBC and they just finished the first season, it's all on demand. It currently sits at 95% on rotten tomatoes. I usually don't like shows like this but it's extremely well done and the characters are great. The female villain is one of the best I've seen on a show, like almost Walter White great.

    I believe it's a BBC America show. It's only finished the first season, so I'm not sure about streaming. You can watch it on the BBC America site but you have to log in with your cable provider credentials to do so.

    I would assume it'll be available to stream on one of the services soon (if it's not already, but I haven't seen it yet so I am not sure on that)

  • That's how I felt too. How did I forget about this when it happened? Definitely binge-worthy.

    House of Cards is coming back for one final season towards the end of the year. Will be interesting how they kill off Spacey's character.

    I saw that Robin Wright posted an ominous picture online of herself with bloody hands. I am thinking that is a bit of foreshadowing her being responsible for Frank's demise. Of course it could just be a false flag, but I'm going with her being responsible.

    As for the show itself, I think it's really run it's course. The last season kind of fell down from the previous seasons. I think I'm ready for this one to be over.

    Agreed on all accounts. It would make sense that she murders him in some fashion or another. I just wonder what his actual last scenes will be or if they will have to resort to CGI to digitally add him in scenes.

    The last season felt stale to us. Nowhere near as strong as the first two seasons. I agree that it's run its course. It was fun while it lasted.

    Switching series...

    Just finished the second season of 13 Reasons Why. It's actually very good. Wasn't sure where they were going with it midway through but the writing and acting is strong. The final episode of course leaves it open for a potential third season which is probably likely.

    Definitely NOT for kids under 16. Some scenes are pretty raw and graphic. We don't let our 12-year-old daughter watch that's for sure. But there's a lot of realism (I imagine) that kids in High School would definitely relate to.

  • As I wait for my favorite Netflix shows to reboot with new seasons/episodes, I was watching an episode of David Letterman's Netflix series where he was interviewing Jay Z. They did a segment on this girl who was recording in a studio where he pops in...

    She's beautiful, but then she sang this piece live, right in front of him. She's incredible. Super star in the making. Looks, voice...Everything. She oozes Soul. Love Letterman's reaction after.

  • For those who enjoyed "Safe", the same guy who did that one also has a series for SKY TV in the UK called "The Five" which is on Netflix as well. It's quite a bit along the same style. I am only a few episodes into the show but it's definitely got a similar vibe.

    This has been a pretty cool show, not finished yet but so far so good


    You are in for a ride. Not as good as Making A Murderer IMO, but still a great watch. Curious what you think of the series and whether you thought he was guilty or innocent.

    Just watched the first episode of season 2 last night, it's an awesome show.

  • Almost through Luke Cage Season 2. Very well done so far. Like most of the Marvel series there are some slow parts but I like it overall. If you have watched the other Marvel shows you will probably like it.

  • I'm digging Safe, although it's super weird and distracting listening to Michael C. Hall's British accent.

    It has a Taken vibe to it, and like most brit shows, always well acted, written and paced.

    My gut tells me he is innocent, I have just reached the buildup to a new trial, however my wife just came home from a trip so we are going to start over and watch together, 3 episodes left and it looks like there are still surprises to come...I like the way the film was made and was fascinated by the legal aspects from both sides, what is important and what is not, how the information is perceived and absorbed by the jury, what happens when the media gets involved, really really interesting, I just never quite grasped how big of a show these big cases really are and how little the truth seems to matter.

    I felt he was innocent too, but these documentaries usually only show one side of the story. Same with Making A Murderer. Someone told me that originally they were going to make this series from both sides (prosecution and defense) but the prosecution decided not to. That would have been interesting.

    Pretty much my take on it as well. Very entertaining show overall, if a bit far fetched and convenient, and yeah... British Dexter.

  • So this show Kiss Me First I'm finding very intriguing. It's like a cross between a modern British drama (both Safe and Requiem come to mind), Ready Player One, and an episode of Black Mirror. With a teenage angsty vibe to it, almost reminiscent of like The End of The F***ng world, minus the humor. But with it's own darkness to it, and it feels like it could get darker. It's only 6 episodes and I'm only 2 in so far. And hot girls. And nudity.

  • Wished that Netflix had on shows besides Making of a Murderer or Evil Genius. But really shows the viewpoint of the victims and not glorifying the killers. As maybe they can think up "Point of View of the Victim's Families."

    We see that on the News every night.

    Or you can watch one of those shows featuring cold cases and true crime and get the actual families and participants in it.

  • Not on Netflix (Hulu) but 11.22.63 is off to a great start.

    First two episodes are really intriguing

    Yes, watched it last year on Stan (twice). Very good. The book is wonderful - I've read it four times. BTW, the new Stephen King book "Outsider" is pretty good, too.
