Finished up Homecoming the other day. Decent, except the ending - the actions of one character  are totally out of whack with the previous portrayal of the character.

Started watching "Supernatural" because i wanted to binge something that has a lot of episodes and it has about a hundred seasons.  It's actually not as bad as I thought it would be.  Some super cheesy stuff but I bet it gets better.  The production quality is not horrible either, just hoping for some better storylines coming up.  

Supernatural is awesome. My wife and I started watching it when the first three seasons or so were on Netflix and gradually fell in love with it over the years. I'm not lying when I say my wife has watched the entire series at least 2xs and is on another rewatch now that the last season dropped. 

It's... the first season is this great, cheesy monster of the week thing but as you get further in and the characters develop, the show starts to really hit its stride with greater mythology stuff. Jensen Ackles (Dean) is also fucking hilarious. If you stick with it there is one post-episode outtake that is one of the legitimately most amazing, hilarious, feel great about life things I've ever seen.

Might try this Supernatural. Sounds like my kind of thing. I seem to be failing miserably at finding something to sink my teeth into since Ozark (which I loved) and Narcos Mexico (which I loved)

Hey so I’m getting into Season 2 and the show is indeed getting better with storylines and everything.   But my main question I can’t get out of my head is how do they make money?  How can they afford all of this counterfeit badges and uniforms, all of their hotel and motel stays, going to bars all the time?  Maybe I’m just being cynical but it’s confounding me lol.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (2016–2017)
Based on the 1987 humorous detective novel book series with the same name by Douglas Adams, writer of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book series. BBC America produced 18 episodes starring Samuel Barnett as Dirk Gently, Elijah Wood as Todd Brotzman, Hannah Marks as Amanda Brotzman, and Jade Eshete as Farah Black.
Watching it on Netflix.
We're 3 episodes in and I must say it's really something else.
Very intriguing. I like it so far. Weird. Wacky. Pretty IDM.

This is pretty good so far, it just hit Amazon in the US, so binging it. I like the issues they raise of faith in the criminal underworld, and the destructive and bleak outlook for everyone involved. There is no joy in these peoples’ lives, no matter which side of the law they are on, the narcotics trade is a black hole that sucks everything good out of everyone involved. But their rationale is it keeps the world economy moving, and therefore is a necessity.

I liked the show quite a lot. A weird one indeed.

I've been watching The Keepers on Netflix. It's about the sexual abuse of children that happens in the Catholic church and in particular, at a girls private school in the 70s. Just a mini series I'm on episode four and there's probably a total of eight. I recommend it.

And with the same name (but in Russian), Khraniteli has been released... The 90s Russian adaptation of Lord of the rings has surfaced.

Looks like parts 1 and 2 are now up, with English subtitles for those who are interested!

Edit

The subtitles are hilarious, and the visuals are really psychedelic. I love this

Last week or so I settled on Better Call Saul (massive fan of Breaking Bad). From the middle of the second season to the middle of the third season (which is where I am now) went by in the blink of an eye! Most excellent. Bit of a slow start though. High 🖐

literally started re-watching this yesterday. i've given up my attempts to get into a new series, so i thought i'd go for something that i already know is the fuckin tits.

i think i probably ended up enjoying this more than breaking bad. sadly it sounds like the next (and final) season is still a long way off cos of the covids

You need a bit of patience, but when our friendly chicken man from Los Pollos gets closer to appearing things begin to ratchet up 🐔
