finished watching Maniac yesterday. this was OK, but I couldn't help thinking "haven't I seen something like this before?" Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Inception, Total Recall all came to mind. I didn't care much for Emma Stone's character, liked Jonah Hill's character but thought his acting was a little weak, and thought Justin Theroux was hysterical. That VR sex part and scene in his apartment were absolutely hilarious.

conan without borders and ugly delicious are good shows

ugly delicious really has carried the torch for Bourdain's shows

Netflix's street food series are great as well

finished Stranger Things season 3

I cannot think of another season of another show with such a literal dull and sluggish start that gradually picks up momentum to the point where I was genuinely wanting more at the season finale - to my own surprise actually

really hope they wrap it up with season 4, as much as they salvaged it I feel like they are stretching it already and the series needs a conclusion for it's own sake legacy wise. making a concluding movie wouldn't be a bad idea

really fun show. kinda reminds me of some early nickelodeon shows like 'so weird' or 'are you afraid of the dark' or 'goosebumps'. except this one is a little better, and for that 90s audience now that they're all grown up

too good to die young was totally my cup of tea, quite possibly the best thing i've seen all year, warts & all. but i can see how it might not be so for others.

I've been re-watching the old ITV series from 1967/68, The Prisoner - someone's uploaded really high quality versions recorded off Granada television in France:

They've only put up 11 of 17 so far, so hopefully the remaining 6 (oh!) will get put up...

Just finished season 3 of The Expanse. Decent SF, with lots of nods to some of the classics of the genre. Not too much drama, just enough to be somewhat relevant to the plot (the Naomi/Holden deal). Apparently Season 4 is scheduled for December, which I think will be the downfall of the show - they should have wrapped it up at the end of Season 3 - too many options will lead to messy storylines.

They’ve been stretching since season 1 blew up and they had to scrap the anthology series aspect because Netflix wanted to keep the same cast. The fact that season 2 and 3 are watchable at all is miraculous.

Just give me a Robin & Steve spinoff show about constantly gaining and losing minimum wage jobs already.

Any new / not so new good recommendations? Thirsty for some good show. I'm left with The Handmaid's Tale at the moment (jesus, what a snoozeville) and no other ongoing shows which is a bit of a bummer. "Dead to Me" with Linda Cardellini was alright but kinda quick. After that I couldn't get into anything new.

If you haven’t checked out the Expanse yet, now is the time. S4 drops in December!

I've been hesitant to give it a go because of some mixed reviews, although I'm a huge sci-fi fan (I mean who isn't). I'll check it out, thanks!

yeah i don't know why it felt like something out of family guy or american dad, maybe it's too short to form an opinion yet...

Yeah that's what I'm hoping. And that's EXACTLY what I thought, that it feels like a family guy joke or something. Just entirely bland. The reason I'm worried even though we have no context, is that they chose to show it as the first preview. Not a good sign.

It’s good. I’m a little hesitant about where they’ll go with season 4, but it’s good. Well worth the watch.

I know book 4 isn’t the most popular but it’s one of my favorites of the series and I’m excited to see how they unfurl it (and inevitably how much of book 5 gets rolled into the second half).
