I finished the first three seasons and I liked 2 and 3 much more than 1. I still don't like the Daniel character but maybe that is a male female thing? I like his sister but that is probably because she is hot. :noclue:

Once I'm done I will probably watch Ozark or jack Ryan.

Did anyone who watched Shape Objects finale know there was a post credits scene? :noclue: I just found out about it. I will watch it later.

I watched the first episode of Ozark last night. I don't know why, but Jason Bateman doesn't fit well with the rest of the cast. He's just an actor reading lines. I'm going to keep watching though.

Two brief scenes: one at 2:53, and another at 4:10.

I'm 4 episodes into Jack Ryan and like it quite a bit. It's so far like a streamlined version of the first few seasons of Homeland without the (mostly Carrie) soap opera drama.

Ozark was so good. Finished seasons 1 & 2 in less than a week (season 2 during last weekend)

Keep watching! I sympathized with his character. I hated Laura Linney's but wow, she deserves an award :worship:

Though it kept my interest, Ozark was just ok. SPOILER ALERT:




What they did with the BB twist at the end was pretty weak. I liked the cast

I haven't been able to get past the 2nd episode of Ozark.

I have been watching this season's American Horror Story: Apocalypse. I really like this season (8). I watched all of the first four seasons, but then lost interest. (I only watched the first episode of season 5, the first episode of season 6 (hated it), and none of season 7.)

I enjoyed Atypical's season 2. Jennifer Jason Leigh's face looks like a weird mask after the third or fourth episode. Has she gotten any plastic surgery? I dunno if it's the bangs or make up but she looks really creepy.
I'm happy that The Good Place is back again. One of the few shows I look forward lately :wink:

I saw the first episode of The Haunting of Hill House (netflix). It was pretty good. I was surprised since I thought the trailer was only so-so.

I've watched 6 episodes of this show so far. I thought the first episode was just ok, but the rest have been great IMO. Especially episodes 5 and 6. I'm looking forward to watching the rest tomorrow.

You are right. The acting and rapport among the cast members is incredible. I'm going to finish the series this weekend.

...

The Netflix version has struck a chord with critics and viewers — including another master of horror, Stephen King, who took to Twitter last week to praise “The Haunting of Hill House” as “close to a work of genius, really.” If you’re curious about the critical near-consensus — or you just want to know exactly what a Bent-Neck Lady is — read on.

I don't enjoy scary shit but I did like the series. It wasn't too scary. The last couple episodes weren't great but overall it was really good. What can they do for season 2? Another family buys the house? A completely different story?

I enjoyed that one (thought it was more psychological horror) and I'm enjoying Sabrina.

Other shows I've enjoyed:
Un Extraño Enemigo on Amazon Prime Video, about the '68 student movement and massacre. It was kinda emotional to watch since we celebrated 50 years of the student massacre. Daniel Giménez Cacho was great as always (check him out, he's one of my favorite Mexican actors, he has worked with Alfonso Cuarón and Pedro Almodóvar)

Finished watching The Bodyguard, with Richard Madden (Robb Stark on GoT). I thought it was good.

I was watching Jeopardy about fifteen minutes ago and Jane from Jane's Addiction was one of the answers. Anyone else see it? The clue was something like "I'm done with Sergio, he treats me like a ragdoll". And the answer was who is Jane. Not sure exactly what the category was.

I was ether going to start this next or The Man in the High Castle.

Just finished Making a Murderer 2. Pretty boring and still guilty.(Avery)

I thought it was interesting, though neither is out of jail (Brendan/Steven). But yeah, I liked the first part better.
