I just finished Netflix's Unbelievable. It was not what I expected; I'm glad I decided to give it a go. I got sucked right in. Strong acting and writing. The actress Kaitlyn Dever is phenomenal.

There are eight episodes, 45-60 minutes each.

“Unbelievable” is a riveting, suspenseful and often difficult–to–watch series that successfully tackles a relevant topic. Coming on the heels of the #MeToo movement, media like “Unbelievable,” which treats the aftermath of sexual assault with honesty and sensitivity, is integral to creating a society that both believes and respects victims.

I’m watching HBO’s “Succession”, about a Murdoch-like family and the family dynamics through a period where the father might step down and there are 4 grown up, rich sons and daughters in line to the throne.

Quite entertaining in general. Very Office-like in terms of direction, script and character features. I’d recommend giving it a go.

I had to listen to "This American Life" episode about this case. Her foster mom (the one who called the detective) sounds like a piece of shit. I don't know how the real Marie forgave her.

I watched El Camino tonight. It was pretty good but not much happened. It seemed like a regular breaking bad episode that should be followed by more episodes. :noclue:

fuck really?! I have been so looking forward to it.

Anyone here into West World? People say very good things about it and I'm thinking about buying the first two season. But I'm surprised that it hasn't been discussed here, is that because it actually sucks? :noclue:

I watched it on Saturday. I enjoyed it, however it had lost some of the classic Vince Gilligan camera work. Maybe it's a prequel to Season 6?

I also watched Joker at the cinema yesterday. Wasn't impressed at all...

I've been watching The Morning Show.
I found the first couple of episode a little on the weak side, but gets better.

Reese has an interview show on Netflix. Have been trying to watch it but have been binge watching other shows like "Atypical", "Insatiable", "The Politician" and "Queer Eye in Japan" (sweetest season ever). After the latest season of "The Crown" I'm going to give it a go.

I'm a big fan of the comics/graphic novel and even liked the movie despite it's flaws. I started off on the first couple episodes and it didn't engage me and let the rest of the season pile up on my DirecTV box until this past weekend when I started watching the rest. About the 4th episode, it all suddenly clicked and I watched the rest of the season in one big marathon binge last night. The only thing that I still am not 100% onboard with with Reznor's score. Otherwise, really turned out great, I hope it's released on 4K disc.

I saw a bunch of episodes of The Good Place. Possibly the stupidest, worst-acted sitcom I’ve ever seen (except for Ted Danson), but it was alright to pass the time. I really enjoyed Stephen Merchant’s guest appearance, though.

I really enjoyed The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel third season. I loved everything about it, especially the guest stars: Cary Elwes, the guy who played George Costanza and the actress who played Paris in Gilmore Girls (totally forgot their names).

I've been watching season 4 of High Maintenance. It's been entertaining. There have been 7 episodes so far. Episode 4 is my favorite.
