watched Castle rock season 2, which was okayish, better than season1.

I also lasted 30 minutes into Cursed, oh netflix, why u suck so bad :facepalm:

Haha, I wanted to say the same; Frank Miller's involvement prompted me to give this a try, but it's cheesier than fucking gorgonzola. The intro was so cringey already, and then I didn't make it through the first scene. So bad. It actually made me respect FM a bit less, even though the collaboration probably didn't extend far beyond his contributing a couple of illustrations for the novel this is based on. Still, to lend your name to something like this ... yikes.

Watching Seinfeld Really good. I always avoided watching it for some reason 'cause I though it was outdated, but I was wrong, it's a great show.

Tales from the Loop. Based on the artwork of Simon Stalenhag (which is an odd qualifier, but think at least some folks here are a fan). About halfway through. It's spectacular. More of a study in huma

Trying to finish Snowpiercer, got 3 episodes left.  Its kinda crap but theres enough going on that its not boring.

Anyone watching Brave New World?

In the UK we have a discount clothing shop called Peacocks, sorta like Primark pre makeover. When you go in, your life expectancy drops by a few years due to the feeling of impending commercial doom.

How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast).

There are good shows on Netflix, and this is an example of one. Clever, contemporary, and doesn't take itself too seriously, which makes it genuinely funny. S02 picks up where S01 ended and is just as entertaining. Definitely worth a try.

Started The Great. It is very silly and superficial but there’s so much going on I’m driven to keep watching to see where this is going. Also, it looks gorgeous.

It’s a show about the life of Catherine the Great - if Catherine the Great had the personality of a pretentious American teenager. There’s tons of people of all sorts of color running around at the Russian court and because the makers *can* show lewdness they feel they *must* - lots of it. Still, it’s fun.

And I’m a sucker for costumes.

It was better than the movie, but pretty meh. VFX were very good for the BBC, but I guess HBO helped with that.

Really it's just about one part of Catherine the Great's life. Her first marriage to Peter the III. Seeing as the point of the show is a comedy, I thought this was a brilliant choice. That part of her biography is ripe for comedic parody.

With that said, I would love some epic historical biopic/miniseries on Catherine the Great's whole life. And yeah that would need a very different tone.

Looks really silly tbh, but I'll still watch it.

Did you edit your post? Could have sworn you wrote shitty instead of silly... 

Anyway...

HBO’s “Watchmen” landed the most nominations of any series, securing 26 nods...

Started Fargo from the beginning.

Season 1 was watchable/enjoyable to a point but there were definite bouts of yelling at the tv for bad writing (ie: "why the fuck would they do that?" of "this makes zero fucking sense"), here and there. Billy Bob was great in it.

Just got into S2 and I'm expecting more of the same but I hear people say it's better than S1, so we'll stick with it.

Re-watching Justified. Timothy Olyphant is a cool motherfucker. On to season 5 already, thanks to lockdown.

Started Shameless season 10, which I wasn't expecting to land right now. Soundtrack is as shitty as it's always been.

that show is definitely in my top 10, no, top 5 shows ever. I've been waiting for the right time to do a re-watch. I only re-watched S1 right before S2 came out, haven't done the whole thing. for me it's a winter show. must be the NE setting and bleakness of a lot of the weather in it.

Dewey Crowe’s four kidneys are too funny. Underrated show. Always makes me long for a bourbon.

I’m FUCKIN NINE episodes in on season two of Fargo. This show is nowhere near as good as people say. I thought S2 was supposed to be better than S1. Not the case. 
I plan to check out S3 but this season is dumb. It’s like some millennials read an article about what a 70s period piece is supposed to be like and made it based solely off of that article and without ever seeing any other 70s period films/shows. Also, TONS of bad cliches, hazy character development and bad writing. And nothing happens. Everything takes 3 episodes of bad dialogue and pointless/meandering split-screens to get to an event where something actually happens. How did it get 100% on Rotten Tomatoes??

Also... UFOs???

finally finished watching DARK... started as one of the most promising sci-fi tv shows of the decade and ended up as one of the major shitstorms of the century...

Spoiler

same problem as LOST, should have finished by the end of s01... perfect show till then...

2nd season was alright and then it started sacrificing its quality just for the sake of the wow factor, introducing ADAM... wow dude far out... by the end, as if things weren't bad enough, here comes Martha, from a 2nd world/dimension...

3rd season new dimension/martha/eve world was a major uninspired facepalm... the countless similarities between the 2 worlds were laughable and embarrassing... the ripped photo, the camera shots, the one-eyed cop was missing an arm??? flol...

lets not forget the 2nd to last episode which starts with the schrodinger's cat, quantum entanglement and superposition... cringeworthy af... what am i? 15?

after so many twists and turns and hearing the phrase Was ist this and Was ist that for the thousand time it turns out that the origin resides in a third world/dimension within the watchmaker scientist which was one of characters with less screen time on the show? who the hell cares about him and his son?

when martha and jonas travel to the 3rd dimension i honestly thought that they were gonna be the ones causing the car accident, that they would gonna appear in the middle of the road and baaaaammm, car crash... and it was pretty close... would have been so much cool...

and why specifically those characters for the last supper? do you guys get it? i don't... anyway, perfect world... nobody is cheating on each other... no discrimination of trans people... one-eyed jack eye is looking way better... i dreamed about the DARKNESS... and everything was so much simpler...
