I've been watching a lot of stuff on Netflix recently.

I watched Alias Grace which I really enjoyed. It's a good mystery with a great performance from the lead actress. Some of the dialogue seems a little too forced with being set in the period but if you remind yourself that you're seeing the story as described by the unreliable narrator it lets me get past some of it.

I also watched the first season of Ozark and I'm all in for a second season. I liked the core family a lot, loved the setting, and found myself invested in the story. And I passed the pedo test on the daughter. The character is 15 years old and while watching I thought she was hot. I googled the actress and she's 18 so I passed (but barely).

I started watching Bloodline next since it seemed pretty similar to Ozark. It's off to a good start for me. It's also nice to start watching something that has multiple seasons.

I just finished Heroes

I had seen the first season when it first aired and loved it but I never saw the rest
And man, that was terrible. I have no clue how I got through the three other seasons but I did and I'm just happy I can start another show.

The ending was especially bad. So many people were useless like Mohinder or Matt, it's just sad when you compare it to the first season
I don't think any show was fucked over more by the writer's strike than Heroes.

Has anyone been watching Godless (Netflix)? I started it this morning and I must say so far I've been impressed. Jeff Daniels is on particularly fine form.

MrMister confirmed to be a virtue signalling SJW :whiteknight

Once I am done with Godless I plan to check out Alias Grace. I believe that's from the same author as The Handmaids Tale?

I really wanted to dislike it, but jeez man, everyone has their shit together. It's incredibly immersive.

I know nothing about Alias Grace except it exists.

FYI for those that don't know Full House is coming to Hallmark Channel. I mention this cause while it's on different networks they will be showing in it's original order starting with first episode. I love when they do that with shows. It's way it should be done. It all starts on New Years Day

Godless had me so hyped with the trailer but it was pretty dissapointing as a series which was a shame because there's moments when it's great but more when it just really dragged.

I was pretty blah on The Handmaids Tale by the end of it but Alias Grace is great.

Yeah I'm getting kind of sick of it as it goes on lol. Still looks great. I disagree with some creative decisions too.

The Crown looks great as well, but that doesn't make it a good show.

I can't even that Alexis Bledel is 36 btw.

Watching Farscape again and it's really really good still. Holds up after all these years.

Oh and it'd on Blu Ray now. Significantly superior experience. If only it was 16:9 ratio ... But I guess they didn't film it in that ratio.

Godless (Netflix) has been amazing. I've finally found another Western show that can rival the excellence of Deadwood (HBO). :drose

This is ridiculous high praise. Not sure if hyperbole or legit.

I just can't see a Netflix show with the greatness of HBO in its prime.

But maybe I need to check out Godless right now :hmm

Re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VII: Geostorm's Oscar Campaign Begins

I really don't know where to rant on this since there isn't any thread for it, but Oh my freaking god, the last episode of Big Bang Theory has made me want the Sheldon character to fucking die.
You DO NOT get to cost your friends a fortune because you're an arrogant jerk and still get to be friends with them, they should have beaten the crap out of him, NO ONE in real life would even have a friend like Sheldon, but if someone was stupid enough to do so, then what he did the lastest episode with the bitcoin should push them over the edge and NEVER SPEAK TO HIM AGAIN.

The second season of the Expanse is basically an example to everyone as to what a true sequel should look like… and do. It does everything the first season did, better, and cuts out the things that didn’t work. It is better made, grander and more epic in scale and stakes and is just an all round great time. I’d go as far to say that the second season of The Expanse is some of the best TV I have ever watched.

If I were to have any criticisms at all, I would probably say that the ending was a bit of a whimper… but only comparatively. The first season The Expanse really felt like it was kicking into overdrive at the end, whereas the second season is so strong from the outset there isn’t really any higher for the climax to go, which makes it feel a little flatter than it might have otherwise. I honestly can’t think of a better problem to have.

I know a season three is on the way but I need more Expanse NOW so I decided to start an Audible so I could listen to the books while I’m working.

Anyone watching Once Upon a Time Season 7?

I thought it was going to be weird how they do the show without Snow White, Charming and Emma. But I actually think this is one of the best seasons, maybe the best since the Peter Pan arc.

I still have one more episode to catch up on ( i'm up to ep 7) i think Drizella is my favorite character this season, Hook 2 is a decent a character and I loved the whole twists and turns of the Alica.

For people in the UK, has Netflix changed their rating system? I see a lot of newly added titles are being listed under "Adult" "Mature" and "Guidance". I haven't a clue what any of these mean or relate to existing ratings for us here like 18, 15, PG etc it doesn't make any difference to me as I am a grown adult without children but at the same time Adult to me suggests porn and I don't want to sit down with my family and put porn on by accident.
