Don't Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23 -- Darker than I'd expected, in a very enjoyable way. Sitcom Advice Neighbor trope handled amusingly. Also good to get more Kristen Ritter.

One of fav shows of all time. It's so goofy and irreverent

It's really coming at me from weird angles. It's a total standard sitcom, except it subverts expectations pretty consistently.

I've started Jessica Jones season 2 but without Killgrave it seems kinda empty.

Does it get any good or should I just give up now. Because lord knows I've got mountains of other trash to watch.

I have no idea what The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is about but the title alone sounds like the whitest white person show that has ever existed right next to Downton Abbey.

I don't know if there's any connection, wikipedia doesn't show her in the credits, but the game's creator is a considerable creative force:

binged Russian Doll in one go. love love loved it. give Natasha Lyonne all applicable awards.

I had thought it would be best to let it be though, and not make more of it, with it being such a nice self-contained story.

But apparently it was pitched (and Netflix is on board?) as a 3-season arc. :hype

I liked it a lot. Very chill with a good dramatic line running through the characters and honest to goodness weird shit that hits in spurts. I.dont want to invoke Twin Peaks because its not it but it shares some of its surreal sentiments.

OK, the Dancing with the Stars sequence is freaking hilarious. And I kinda suspect Dean Cain is closer to being a douche than Van Der Beek.

Yeah I really liked it.  I would prefer it end for good the way it did. I binged the whole thing in one sitting Saturday and was really surprised because the trailer looked like crap.

Started up Red Oaks on a whim and I've been digging it. The story is trite but the characters are all empathetic (maybe except for two). Then you have these goofy '80s flourishes that just add to the feel of the show.

Tried to watch the Al Bundy Tapes on Netflix.
Had to stop at the second episode, because it's boring as shit.
You know he did it, they know he did it, and so it's just 40 minutes of zoom ins on his photo with cheeky horror music.

The guy wasn't even that interesting, just your regular psycho with impotent rage.

If it was all condensed in one episode, it would've been fine.

I never watched supernatural past like season 6 or something but one day I'm sure I'll go back and give the rest of it a watch no matter how bad it got. I had a fondness for the show from the early years.

edit: Actually I watched that Scooby-Doo episode from a couple of seasons ago. That was pretty good.

Season 6 is probably the worst season. You can tell they had no idea what they were doing so most of it just feels like them rehashing older seasons explicitly but cheaper, it was very off. Season 7 has pretty solid tick back up but still rough around the edges. Season 8 is around where they start hitting that old quality again. With the show peaking again in season 10 and 11. A return to more serious mythology stuff with weight and I'd put them up there with s3-5. It's also where I think they started to realize that the show has been on so long that they could literally just do whatever the fuck they wanted as long as it was in budget. Some great episodes in this later season like the one that's shot entirely from the pov of the car (even a great fight towards the end).



It gets pretty silly silly again around 13 and to where we are now I guess but like I've always maintained, SN at it's worst (s6) is silly solid procedural entertainment. Even if it's background noise lol.


lol wow thats a lot for sn but I guess everyone has one of those shows. I've been watching/following the early upn days so

I know two things about this show

1. It is on Netflix
2. Female animators seem a bit unhappy with it

For whatever reason i started watching Xfiles during lunch, i watched most of it (until Mulder leaves) as a kid, but i don't remember much.
Lol, this show is comfy and all, but it's so fucking dumb... i'm like in ep.5, and they've already ran into lizardmen and shit, and Scully is still like "No Mulder, there's got to be an explanation!" every time, plus she always finds an excuse to stay behind, when Mulder is running into the monster of the week, so she's always covered by plausible deniability.
Also every episode so far contained a corrupted local police chief that burns all the evidence at the end of the second act.

I guess i'm not used to procedurals anymore.

I'll keep watching because as i said i find it comfy, and those oversized 90's suits are too goofy to pass up.
