I have not seen a date anywhere. Probably November, though. Maybe after El Camino?
Anyone else watching Succession on HBO? Probably one of the best written shows on right now.
Has anyone been watching Happy! ? I was slinking around Netflix last night and stumbled on this. To me it seems like the guys who made Crank got together with Tarantino, decided to make a show, got high and then decided to add a blue cartoon unicorn voiced by Patton Oswald just to shake things up. I watched the first episode, and I have to say I enjoyed it. It's gloriously fucked up.
That whole show is like a fever-dream of fucked-uppedness. It was legitimately one of the funniest and unique shows that's been out in the past decade. Sadly it only made it two seasons on SyFy before being cancelled, and it really didn't have the satisfactory ending that I would have liked to have seen, but even knowing that, it's still worth watching the whole thing.
Oh yeah, watched it a while ago.... I genuinely laughed out loud at the fucked-up-ed-ness.
Too bad SyFy canceled it. I wish I had known about this sooner. I guess I have to crawl out from under my rock every once in a while.
and fuck them for region locking there shit. can't watch it at work.
I watch season one at Christmas multiple times. I’m pissed that they cancelled it, viewers don’t know what they missed out on.
The four-part comic is waaaaaay darker and fucked-up.
Season one is also on Netflix.
For some dumb cheap laughs, nothing serious:
The Good Place: comedy with Kristen Bell and a few other familiar faces. She is cast as a terrible person who ends up in the Good Place erroneously. Some of her flashback stories to shit she did in life crack me up. The plot has some variability after several episodes.
Disenchantment: adult cartoon that sorta gives me Futurama vibes. The 1st season is funny enough especially after a few episodes but season 2 takes off. Enjoying it a lot.
I'll second the good place, but I found it's one of those "you gotta stick with it" kind pf shows.
The first half of the first season I found a little meh, second half was better. Then the second season I found quite funny and I'm glad I stuck with it.
Season 2 is out for Jack Ryan on Amazon. I've watched the first 2 episodes. It's solid. Good tension building.
Yep, just watched the first two episodes last night.
I really enjoyed the first season. There were a lot of questions when John K was cast in the role, but man, did he ever deliver.
Season 2 is starting off nicely, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.
I listen to a lot (all?) of the Jack Ryan series of audio books while I work in the shop, and find them all to be pretty enjoyable.
I just wish that they'd do a John Clark series at some point.
It would be pretty easy to just adapt Without Remorse into a short series. Solid book, and it would origin story Kelly into Clark.
Without Remorse is getting made into a movie: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/remorse-movie-release-date-set-2020-1182499
Well, there you go! I hope they don't wander too far off the book. I say that because they mention Rainbow 6......which is just a lot later. MBJ ought be very good in the role.
I Think You Should Leave on Netflix is probably one of the funniest sketch comedy shows ever. It’s already better than anything SNL has put out in 15 years.
Apple has entered the streaming game, and has brought a few decent shows with them for their launch.
The Morning Show - Clearly inspired by Matt Lauer's demise at The Today Show, it's the first solid drama in and about the Me Too era, with some classic media network politics to underpin it.
For All Mankind - An alternate history that asks "what if the Soviets had landed a man on the moon before Apollo 11?" Some cool ideas about how the space race would have continued as well as the social and political ramifications of losing the race to the moon.
Living With Yourself
Pretty decent Netflix show, I was surprised. Paul Rudd plays a burnt out ad exec who unwittingly clones himself with an all-around better version who shares his entire memories and looks; and basically the worlds most awkward love triangle forms with “their” wife.
Rudd is excellent in a dual role, it has a very good balance of drama and comedy. It also trolls the viewers with timelines and the two Rudd characters, as we sometimes don’t realize which one is which.
