What does everyone think of Leaving Neverland?
I have heard a lot of complaints that it was too long and somewhat boring but I thought the whole thing was interesting. As far as believing the two guys I thought they were both telling the truth but I have always believed he was a pedophile. I have never been an MJ fan though. It seems that only fans of his seem to think he is innocent.
I've only watched the first one so far and it does seem to damn him quite badly. I'm not sure why it's taken them so long to 'come out' though. And he was never convicted of anything whilst alive was he? I've heard a few stories about paying people off but not really sure on what grounds. All in all very weird.
The second part addresses a lot of the court stuff. Never was a huge fan, and the dude was obliviously fucked up at the very least. I don't know many grown men with wives and children who would just start making up stories of a grown man's penis in their mouths. The parents were really fucked up too. Whole thing is really fucked up and sick. I can understand why pedophiles don't do well in prison. Now that I have kids, I might likely kill someone, if they did this to my kids. How can someone do shit like this to kids?
Yes I agree. It's hard to watch when you have children, especially when they're around that age. As a parent, would you honestly let your 7 year old boy sleep in the same room as your host whilst you were in another room? I don't even regard that as a trust thing, it's just incredibly irresponsible.
Watch abducted in plain sight if you want to hear about parents that are even more irresponsible than these parents

Love Death + Robots is awesome



It's a quick watch, as most episodes are 15 minutes or less.

I watched both episodes last night. Both of their stories were awful, but Wade's was something else. I'm glad he's estranged from his mother.
I remember when I was like 16 years old and my almost 40 year old math teacher wanted to hang out with us outside school. My mom always told me that it was fucked up and asked me to stay away from him. So watching the victim's mothers made me want to puke. Like it was so normal to leave their small kids with this predator and be showered with presents and trips.

I gave Ricky Gervais’ ‘After Life’ a go last night and couldn’t go past the first episode. Everything was so lame and on-the-nose, it really was embarrassingly bad.

I highly recommend skipping it.

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann on Netflix.

I'm fascinated by this case. Eight parts, great viewing.

I enjoyed the first two episodes of The Act.(Hulu) It's a crime drama based on the real story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard.
Patricia Arquette plays the mother, DeeDee. Chloe Sevigny is in this too. The actor who plays Gypsy is really good.

I just finished it. I think it's pretty obvious that the parents didn't do it but there is hardly any evidence or clues at all. I don't think it will ever be solved. If I was to guess I think that she is still alive though :noclue:

Ok, so I watched The Dirt last night. :lol:
It was pretty bad but entertaining. Some parts were, um, disturbing. Like Ozzy snorting ants and licking pissing off the ground. :jasper:

I was never a Motley Crue fan, so have no idea how accurate any of it is.

Didn't know/remember that Razzle(drummer from Hanoi Rocks) was killed by Vince Neil driving drunk and getting into an accident.
Didn't know that Vince Neil's little girl died from cancer when she was four.

I thought it was all bad, but I did fall asleep towards the middle only to wake up about 15 minutes before it ended. So maybe I slept through the entertaining parts?

My little gripes about it.

I couldn't stop seeing Ramsay Bolton every time they showed Mick Mars. Also one thing that was really minor that really bugged me was when Mick Mars showed up to audition for the band in 1981, Tommy is wearing a Hulkamania shirt. Hulkamania didn't start until 1984. So a little timeline mistake, but I still found it annoying. The actor that played Vince Neil. I hated his face. He had a constant dopey look that got on my nerves.

I never read the book, but the movie didn't show anything that I already didn't know about the band, so I also found that a bit disappointing too.

That's crazy KV that it happened so close to you. . There were a bunch of drunken tragedies during the 80's. This Motley Crue guy, the Def Leopard guy lost his arm, randy rhodes was killed, Cliff Burton died.

The shrink reminded me of mine. I think we're too familiar nowadays and he can't wait to stop listening to me sometimes. Guess I liked it cause we've all been through pain and loss.

I started watching this last night and finished this morning. It's about the Colosio case (presidential candidate murdered in 94). I was in my HS senior year when it happened and this year they finally opened the files to the public. Totally recommend it.

I'm definitely watching "The Dirt" next...

Also watched the first episode of "The Case Against Adnan Syed". I was completely ignorant about this. I had heard about the Serial podcast but have never listened to it. I'm hooked.
