Started watching Absentia and Fresh off the Boat on Amazon Prime.
Just day-binged season 2 of Big Little Lies (binged season 1 a few months back)... just tv of the highest order!
'The Boys' has me laughing a lot, then immediately feeling guilty as I can't help feeling I shouldn't be laughing at some of the stuff.
I've done that a few times
Certainly laughed a lot, though never felt guilty... maybe I’m sicker than I originally thought !
Probably the 4th or 5th time that I've watched The Wire (currently 4 eps deep into season 1)... so good.
Just finished the final season of OITNB, enjoyed it a lot. They wound everything up quite well - though the Piper story ended up the opposite of how I wanted it to
Disney, ESPN+ and HULU streaming bundle to be offered this November.
Started watching Goliath last night starring Billy Bob Thornton.
Watched the first 4 episodes, and so far it has gotten my attention. William Hurt plays the villain role so well.
A VPN now seems even more appealing.
“When they see us” on Netflix. About the 5 men wrongfully convicted of the rape of a jogger in Central Park. One of those that made me feel angry at what these men had to face and how the system utterly failed them. Also infamous for Trump’s adverts using the case to call for New York State to bring in the death penalty and stoke up tensions during the trial. He has never apologised for this despite the exoneration of the 5. Sound familiar?
Been re-watching all of Futurama now it's on Amazon Prime
Hermes is the gift that keeps on giving
"Sweet yeti of the Serengeti"
"Sweet Georgia brown of Kingston town"
"Sweet Guinea pig of Winnipeg"
Oh man what a show! Might get me back into some of that
It’s probably sacrilegious but... I prefer Futurama over The Simpsons, ooops... well it’s out now!
Haven’t tried Disenchantment though, anyone tried that yet?
I think Futurama, as a whole, is better than the Simpsons, but the golden age of the Simpsons is some of the best TV ever - just diluted by its massive drop off.
Disenchantment is OK - I only watched half of it but it was enjoyable enough. Background noise rather than 'i can't wait to watch the next episode tonight' kind of TV
Well, we've got our kid actors, a big bunch of "who?" which... quite honestly pleases me.
Egwene > Rand > Perrin > Nynaeve > Matt.
No idea what any of them have done before, somleta hope they can act.
Fair comment, The Simpson’s was great once, shame about Disenchantment though as I love fantasy... speaking of which:
That’s not ‘my’ Nynaeve! On a serious note though these guys were always going to be unknowns... really hope they do these books justice.
Golden age of Simpsons was seasons 3-8, 9 (well contained really funny episodes if not all of them, whereas 3-8 I think the standard was consistently brilliant) was good as well and from there well it’s reached today’s standard. Don’t watch it anymore.
Yeah I definitely echo that peak Simpsons was better, just had the better characters across the board.
