I will once it hits Netflix. :wink:

Mayans MC still going very well. I think Sutter fine-tuned SOA, from some of the viewer complaints, and man, it's really nice.

Has anyone tried Looking For Alaska? I did not read the book but it was very well received and I'm curious about it being adapted to television.

Also I am through S2 E5 of Killing Eve now and although there's been a few jump the shark moments for me overall I have enjoyed it very much mostly due to some of the leads and the dialogue. Jodie Comer, Sandra Oh and Sean Deleney particularly are great while Kim Bodnia's Konstantin might be my favorite TV character in quite a long time. I really wish
Hidden Content...
Bill Pargrave could have lasted longer
, while Fiona Shaw's Carolyn is pretty cliched and been done before already. But I'm looking forward to seeing how S2 ends.

Looking up Kim Bodnia and I see he was part of 3 seasons of the original (Swedish?) version of The Bridge which I've been meaning to watch but never have. I might have to solve for that.

I’m watching dancing with the stars tonight, good wife and husband entertainment, I’m not turning in my man card. And people get to vote via texting. Sean Spicer is an abomination, he is dancing with an amazing talented dancer but he looks awful. So at the end of the show they tally audience votes and scores from judges and Spicer must have a huge following because he is beating out these other dancers. It’s like the British boat that people got to vote on the name, it was boaty mcboatface or something that won. My wife is understandably upset but I’m really liking the whole crash the show concept. Really parallels how Trump got elected, people disrupting the business as usual process.

Mayans MC:

About 2/3 through the second season. Like "Sons Of Anarchy," there are a LOT of webs in place at this point. However, UNlike SOA, Mayans writers learned things, and have tightened up stuff, so it's not so haywire/off the rails. So far, everything actually DOES have a reasonable reason for taking place. It's not just "well, went rogue, stuff happened." That being said, if they keep the tightness up, I would expect 4 seasons, MAYYYYYYYYYYYYBE 5 if they come up with something to add to the current stuff. While there are a lot of moving parts, it's more accelerated than SOA.

Really loving it so far.

This is pretty spot on for me too. I like not being in the middle of an episode or at the end of one and staring at the tv and saying "What. In. The. Actual. Ef?"

Mayans getting deep. I love how they really dip into the Mexican culture/ways at times. Definitely a different window than US culture.

2 eps to go before this season is done. Should be a fun ride.

Went to Lush to watch the finale last night...so much more fun watching with a group of people that's hosted by a drag queen. :D

I totally enjoyed this season. It was a little easier to follow than prior seasons, and the total campiness (no pun intended) of it was fantastic.

Agreed. Rumor is next season could be last amd they want all the big names back. I hope so- kind of surprised how much I liked this season with Paulson/Lange/Evan

"Nocturna Lee Mission", ( :lol: ) the host of the viewing parties at Lush, did A LOT of research on what could be up for next season and everything was pointing towards aliens. There were a few things she mentioned to make it seem plausible.

There was another Asylum connection...someone noticed that the house Mr Jingles lived in in Alaska looks EXACTLY like the house "Kit Walker" (Evan Peters' character) owned in Asylum (see below). Could just be they went cheap and used the same set. But, I'd be more likely to believe Ryan Murphy did that intentionally for one reason or another.

The first two episodes have been very good. As an aside, I can't imagine who is a Disney geek (like me) not signing up for Disney+. $6.99/month and you have access to virtually everything in their catalog.

Verizon customers (most of them, anyway) get a free year. So I signed up for it with that. Not sure I'll keep it after a year, but, I'm enjoying it so far.

Disney fans are their own cult. The fact you have access to most of their historical library, Nat Geo, Star Wars, Marvel, and all 31 seasons of the Simpsons in one place (and it will be the only place in not too long) will make it worth the cost.

This "streaming service that just started" has a deep catalog to stream right away. It's not like they are starting at ground zero.

I got about a dozen right tonight (which included a couple stabs in the dark).

How could they miss, "GOOD DAY, SIR!" ?!?!?!

I just watched all 8 episodes of The Mandalorian tonight.

Enjoyed it a lot!!!!
Watched this over the weekend. Really liked it. Excited for season 2! Also hearing rumors that this series may be hinting at the next big Star Wars movie franchise- battle between Mandalorians and the Jedi (apparently there was a cartoon show about it a few years ago too?)

Yeah I binged over the last few days with a free trial! Really liked the show, but sad how short the episodes were. I thought they would be longer.

Any easter eggs in there I missed?

Probably a lot. There's a guy who did a breakdown of the episodes with a lot of in-depth info on YouTube that i watched after running through the show. Emergency Awesome is the channel. He gave all sorts of background info (like a possible Boba Fett sighting).

I played Quiz Bowl at the U for a couple years and like to think I can hold my own in a trivia content. I'm blown away by how stupid I feel watching these 3 play

Wasn't in Quiz Bowl, but I rocked at NTN trivia. ;)

Only got about 7-8 answers right tonight; the work week is getting to me, I was having difficulty getting the answers at times (they weren't exact; like I said keystroking, instead of keylogging)

Derry Girls on Netflix is flipping fantastic. Some wonderful craic!!
The show takes place in Derry (Londonderry for some ;) ) Northern Ireland toward the end of "The Troubles" in the 90s and it's extremely well written and acted.
The show may have the best nun character I've seen since 'the penguin' in The Blues Brothers....she is fantastic.

Closed Captioning is strongly suggested.

A couple recent documentaries I've seen on Netflix: Don't F*** With Cats and Abducted in Plain Sight

The first has little to do with cats and focuses on the subject of an international man hunt, spurred on by a group of nerdy internet sleuths. If you didn't know it is a true story, you might think it was made up for a t.v. movie.

The second is an astonishing record of a family in the 1970s who was duped in the worst possible way by a family friend. I sat there with my mouth opened not believing the gullibility being troweled out on the screen.

That "Abducted In Plain Sight" is SOOOOOOOO messed up.

The more I thought about Don't F With Cats, the more I disliked all the people in it. The bad guy, obviously, but also the internet sleuths. They had no real authority, but all the outrage. Something was off about them. Then at the end they tried to make it sound like they were just normal people doing what anyone else would have done. They were not.

What could be wrong with people who sleep by day and are glued to their computer screens by night? Yeah, they were all a bit creepy, but I think people like mysteries, and they like looking for clues. Add that the internet creates a faux society of friends and a false sense of belonging, and you end up with townspeople carrying lanterns crying "Get a rope!" as they chase the monster through town.

What I found outrageous was when the ring leader of these internet Columbos opined openly that perhaps they had a hand in creating this guy and spurring him onto the bigger crime.Then she said that maybe her audience is complicit as well? Really? Watching a film of a train wreck after the fact somehow causes more train wrecks? What a dope. I think she is trying to assuage her own guilt for facilitating these crimes by willingly playing what turned out to be the critical role of an internet investigator. If there's going to be a hunt, the fox needs a hound.
