Really enjoyed Hacks.

Jean Smart was great. Seems that this is her year. She was also really good as the mother in Mare of Easttown(another really good show)

I'm LOVING Mare of Easttown! 6 episodes in! I'm not a huge fan of Kate Winslet but she's excellent in this.

I liked it too. I'm surprised on KW....I walked out of Titanic whenever it came out, but she was amazing in one of my all time fave films, Revolutionary Road

I thought she did a good job with the Pennsylvania accent. When my parents had a condo in Florida, their neighbours were from Pittsburgh and sounded just like Mare...to my ear anyway. :lol:

I watched “Once Upon a Crime” on Netflix, about a murder in Brazil. Quite interesting.

We’ve also been watching “Grand Designs”, which is pretty cool (particularly considering that this year we moved into a flat that we had to renew completely… and it’s not finished yet.)

And my partner got me into “Westworld”… oh god, what a piece of shit that series is. Absolute shit. We just finished the first series, and after I rejected “Watchmen” and the Captain America series after only one episode (which managed to be even worse than Westworld), I just cannot reject this one too. I’ll have to stick it out to the end.

the woodstock doc was good.

the only interesting characters are the newlyweds and maybe the two young girls.

Did you stick with the show to the end? If so, I was rather surprised by the suitcase scene! Can't believe that didn't get censored. :jasper:
I don't want to be a spoiler if people are watching, but I didn't care for the ending.

Wild Wild Country on Netflix was really interesting. Being in a cult looks fun for a while but something bad usually happens in the end.

The first episode is a little slow but then it gets good.


Older series, but found this and started watching a couple episodes of this. Really engrossing, well done.

You keep having to question your affinities to everyone involved the townspeople, the Feds and the cult, who just essentially are doing America to the people who say they need to be extinguished, and are the true Americans.

This is BRILLIANT. Original, funny, dark and mental. I always find oriental series/films either brilliant or a bit meh. New series on the way too.

I still don't understand why Parasite got so many commendations? :noclue:

Oriental? :confused:

Well, I'll agree. It was brilliant. Straight up exercise in Ethics. And though all were great, the marbles episode was some of the best tv I have ever seen....no problem setting 4 distinct plays from it.

The other two and 10 year old Tom on HBO Max are both funny.
