    Trailer for Altered Carbon on Netflix. Looks really cool.

    I like how we also live in a world now where television shows get movie-quality budget and stars. And Netflix put out more movies this year that I enjoyed than the actual THEATRES did (“Wheelman” is a must-see). Shows like Mindhunter, The Knick, and Westworld are basically like a 13-hour- long movie. It’s the same quality, more quantity.

    Mindhunter is really good and I dont know why. It should be boring, but it isnt. There is no better casting of a gruff, hard-nosed cop than Holt McCallany.

    Holy shit. I just finished reading the books because of Juice's semi-recommendation. If they can achieve 30% of the book's descriptions in visual form, everybody is in for a treat. Fantastic book, lots of misdirection and surprise, some truly ominous people and some very valid, very interesting moral/ethical questions around identity, virtual immortality, what it means to grow old and what so doing does to a human on a long enough timescale.

    Anyone watch Dark on Netflix? Someone recommended it to me and I was a little put off by it being native German and dubbed in English but after you get into it, it is great Sci-fi. A small German town, with a large nuclear power plant coming to grips with children vanishing and some showing back up mutilated. Strange supernatural occurrences and other unexplained phenomena.

    I have that book on my shelf and haven't found time to read it yet... looks like I know what I'm doing over Christmas.

    Happy!

    Haven’t read the novel but this show is awesome so far. Chris Meloni (one of my favourite actors) has the role of a lifetime as a corrupt burnt-out ex-cop turned contract killer who is suddenly haunted by an imaginary talking unicorn (Patton Oswalt).

    Gruesome, hilarious, and coal-dark, it’s not for everyone but I’m loving it. It wallows in gallows humour and Meloni destroys the scenery every second he’s on screen as a true badass motherfucker and finally gets a great starring role. I hope this one lasts.

    I’m watching Netflix’s Godless. Westerns aren’t everyones cup of tea, but they’ve done a good job in this. Some familiar faces, decent script and acting, and some interesting twists. And like most westerns the cinematography is beautiful.

    That's on my "watch soon" list... Donald "Cowboy" Ceronne is in it, so looking forward to it.

    I’ll throw a second recommendation in for this show, it’s dark and awesome in most every aspect. Never thought I’d like a show that aired on SciFy but there you go.

    The last episode ended with the main character saying "Shit, I killed my daughter's imaginary friend." Then the naked ghost of a guy he'd killed appeared next to him and started jacking off. It's a weird show.

    Yeah but it was the cat’s ass when he dragged that red shirt’s face across the popcorn stucco. BRUTAL shit.

    Two episodes later and it’s sooooooooo much more fucked up, this show is like a black comedy fever dream. I mean holy moly, this show has left “Preacher” in the dust for a show about awful people doing horrible things. This is the first show I’ve seen where each episode so surgically one-ups the next for exploitive shock value.

    And there’s still next week’s finale to look forward to.

    Fans of IT Crowd (or Richard Ayoade in general) should check out Travel Man.



    Essentially, Richard Ayoade spends 48 hours in a random location accompanied by another comedian/actor/what have you.

    Hilarious and fun. Plus, you can get a mini IT Crowd reunion with the Chris O Dowd episode.

    I don't have Showtime, so I never watched Episodes when it was running live. Not sure if it's new to Netflix streaming, or they just added the final season. Either way, I just started watching it this year. Hilarious. Matt LeBlanc as Matt LeBlanc is really good (and the character reminds me so much of one of my friends), and the writing is laugh-out-loud sharp. I highly recommend it.
