Rewatched The Expanse
Love that show.
SyFy Seasons 1 2 3 were great. Highly recommended.
Amazon Season 4 was a complete let-down for me though. Terrible writing. Character development was all over the place. Don't watch it.

There's a season 3? WTF is season 2 or did I miss the boat?

Finishing up Better Call Saul series 4, Series 5 is airing now but I haven't started it yet.

Also, Narcos: Mexico Series 2

I watched the massively hyped I am not okay with this. People are loving it. But lo and behold, it turns out it's more of the same. Carrie by way of a feelgood retro-fetishizing coming of age dramedy.

Netflix/10

Im Sturz durch Zeit und Raum / Erwacht aus einem Traum / Nur ein kurzer Augenblick / Dann kehrt die Nacht zurück ♥️

s01e05, damn, i saw it coming...

Spoiler

it's been done before so, i thought to myself that young mikkel who traveled back in time would probably be someone's dad in 2019, probably jonas dad since they didn't show his past... turns out i was right...

Just started season 4 of Gomorrah. Rather on the nose, even by Gomorrah standards. However, in ep. 2 someone gets sent a chopped off hand in a box, so there’s that.

Season 3 didn’t start off too great either but ended up quite ok, so I’m still optimistic.

Hunters. The story line is really good - some of the directing is a little inconsistent, there's clearly one director who thinks they're Quentin Tarnatino/Guy Ritchie but overall that doesn't detract too much. Some really amazing performances going on, and Al Pacino makes a top notch jew.

Oh man! My wife and I watched the first episode the other night and I both faded before the end of it.
It lost us at a few points (among many being that the main dude doesn’t remotely seem like he’s from New York City, let alone an outer borough, let alone a drug dealer, especially in the 70s). Totally agree that the directing is a bit off and your point about Tarantino/Ritchie (I’d like to add Wes Anderson). 
I think it might take a bit of prodding for us to jump back in. 
 

We cruised the fuck through the watchmen tho. Great show!

I didn’t care for the film and hardly remember it. From the little I do remember, the series is very different in lots of great ways. Can’t wait for another season... if it comes together. 
Did anyone see both the series and the film that also read the graphic novel?? If so, what are your thoughts???

I rarely get offended watching tv/movies, but I have to say lots of that left a bitter taste in my mouth. Making the Nazis out to be cartoonish villains, and making up a bunch of ridiculous death camp stories (like the chess thing), was pretty shitty. Pacino is great in it though alright, and I'm usually pretty lukewarm on him. The lack of a consistent style was also annoying, when it just sticks to the story and stays in the moment it's fine, but the various little over stylized diversions felt completely out of place.

I've seen all three. One of the few people who seems to like the film, even though it butchers the major point of the comic, it's still well made judged on it's own merits imho. The show was a lot better than the movie though, closer in spirit to the comic, really well put together I thought.

Really? I mean sure a lot of that is bull, but there’s lots of horrible shit that was true. I guess I don’t find it offensive because it’s not supposed to be a true story.

there were certainly actual instances of horrible psychopathic shit that went down, given a situation like that the small minority of people who are psychopaths would have a field day. but the really terrifying thing about the Nazis was that most of the perpetrators were average, uninteresting people; the banality of evil explains most of what went on far better than some over the top cartoon evil.

i feel like this documentary started off by wanting to be about hillary clinton, but couldn't help but be about what hillary clinton thinks of losing to trump and reminecesing about being first lady. it's so much that, it almost feels like it's a campaign anouncement

He's very clearly not supposed to be a drug dealer. He's a poor kid who has an opportunity to make some money to help out at home, not some hip fucking gangster from the 5 boroughs.

There is no banality of evil.
