So Narcos: I loved the whole 6 eps I've watched. I cannot remember a series that reminded me of a good movie quite like this one. I couldn't believe Pedro Pascal is in it he kills it. Good writing, excellent use of documentary material and the guy playing Escobar is very talented. He is menacing without being obvious. Dangerous subtle bastard. Learnt a lot about that age and cocaine too!

 Hmmm, gotta check that out!


 I've missed the last couple of episodes (it went on a break, and I forgot to tune back in when it started back up), but plan on watching them, well, I was going to watch them over this long weekend, but got caught up in The Night Of.  I finished it last night, and I definitely enjoyed it.  The guy who plays Detective Box, well, I'll just say I was so thrilled to see him have such a huge role.  He's been working his ass off for years, and if anyone deserves great success, he definitely does (he just got nominated for his first Tony this year, too).

I've seen it Yvy. Both seasons. I thought it was good. Both Gillian and Jaime Dornan were perfect, him especially as Spector the murderous bastard. I heard they were renewing for season 3 but I don't think anything came out of it.

You all should watch Better things. Pamela Adlon and Louie CK, except Louis only writes here (or directs? forgot). It gets better by the minute. 

hahahaha just hear this from some bulgarian guy (not Flowered ) :"I have a way to cook chicken that makes meat falls of the bone"

 *waves hand* Yes!

I liked it enough that I caught the first two seasons in one weekend. The third season is more "American" and is taking me longer to get through.

Black Mirror is pretty good, I'd say.


I was really liking the Exorcist series, but it went off the rails on Episode 8. Now there's a three week wait before Ep 9 airs. Sigh.

An end has come to Rectify, the most overlooked show of the 2010's. Can't get much closer to perfection than this show.

It sort of reminded me of Breaking Bad in that the main character had to undergo a transformation between ep1 and the final episode (physically and mentally), though not to the extreme of Walter White. The story is also compelling and kept me guessing to the last few minutes.

Watch it without spoilers.

These are in my rotation this month:

- Silicon Valley: started this last night and am in love with these guys.

Any other fans? It's on HBO.

- Black Mirror: have one more ep and I'll be done.

What did y'all think of s3?

- Life in Pieces: this one's my fave of all the half hour comedies currently on

Anyone ever heard of it?

I fiiiiiiiiiiiiinally got around to watching the second season of Happy Valley. It was glorious, I wonder if there's been a better character on tv these past ten years than Catherine fucking Cawood.

Well, out of the new series I've tried I think I'll stick with The Man In The High Castle for now. It is a bit too dramatic, how else could it be though consider the subject (alternative universe where Nazi won the war and US is split between Japan and the 3rd Reich), it has good story, pretty good acting and an interesting vibe. Anyone else watching it?

I quite enjoyed this one!

Very black humor, but its so over the top it really works.

Oh wow! Don, some of the actors I'm seeing on that trailer are from Justified. Constable Bob, Raylan. I can't stand Drew Barrymore for some reason but that's just me.

Timothy Olyphant was actually the funniest on the show. I know him mostly from his dramatic/villainous roles, so him being a bumbling husband was kinda hilarious.

Pete Holmes was on The Late Show to promote Crashing. I thought he was funny and now I'm looking forward to this.

Woah! YvyB freakout That's some trailer. Had no idea Hulu made their own original series. Looks quite interesting and the period setting is just fantastic for me. Will give it a shot when I get around to it, later in the year.

Recommend The Expanse. Again. Second season pulls no punches. It's first season squared in terms of production, script, visuals and rhythm. It doesn't let you breathe. Except in the last ep. Sort of. Well done, SyFy and James S. A. Corey :applause:

It seems pretty damn confirmed they're developing them, whether any of them make it to production remains to be seen.

Yeah they are being written and I am sure they will all go through the pilot phase, after that we see what sticks.
The ASOIAF lore is vast enough that a prequel series might work well, we shall see.

I'm not sure they'd make 4 pilots, but maybe. I like the prospect of having more Westeros onscreen, and I'm far less concerned about quality than I would be were it another network attempting a spin-off.
