It’s great, highly accurate, and shows how banal the immorality of the drug trade is. 

I assume this was based on the book? ...which was great, must check it out.

hahaha awesome! It really is an addictive show. I took a look back to refresh on S5 (there are SO MANY seasons) - that's a good one, and the season finale might be one of my favorite episodes ever. .. iirc they were considering making it the series finale at one point but... well, I'll let you get there. 

We're on the last few seasons right now in my wife's marathon rewatch - the show ends really strongly, and it does some interesting things to open up the characters a bit, show some interesting growth, has some innovative directorial decisions. By that point you kind of get the feeling that they don't have to worry about ever getting cancelled, so they are able to try different things/do interesting one-offs....

Anyway, glad you are enjoying!

 

I'm getting pretty deep now, season 9 ish.  All I have to say is thank the lord for Dean, because Jared Padalecki is one of the worst actors on earth haha.  He is so fucking bad, almost makes it unwatchable, but Dean and Castiel keep me coming back.

Almost unwatchable.

Completely unmissable.

That shit was on USA for years, usually followed by Up All Night

Au service de la France / A very secret service

 

A French Netflix show poking fun at the bureaucratic ineptitude of the French secret service and more generally at French history. Very funny. 

Also does the Mad Men schtick were they ridicule 1960s attitudes about women, people of color and smoking except that they do it well, without any of the cringe worthy smugness that made Mad Men unwatchable.

Watching Sons of Sam on Netflix. Brilliant. Miles better than Night Stalker which was a huge letdown imo (why would I care about the cops marriage problems told by his wife! Lol)

So far (on episode 2) this is excellent. The occult side of the story definitely adds extra interesting ingredient. I’m a sucker for anything to do with Beelzebub.

I'm watching this too (Episode 3 now) and just finding it so sensationalist. Satanic panic hysteria all over this thing.

limited documentary series on netflix that attempts to explain david berkowitz was not the son of sam. only problem is that i'm not sure all parties involved were ready to go down that rabbit hole and you suddenly realize everyone has bitten off way more than they can chew.

Just finishing episode 3 now. It’s a fascinating story. Even if perhaps as you say sensational. The Process and Charles Manson link I’m a bit sceptical about, and finding the bible near the murder scene seems iffy. All makes for a great book (and now documentary) though. Perfect soundtrack as well.

I distinctly remember being 13 and incorrectly thinking this would be good to stay up late and masturbate to.  I probably still managed somehow.

Always a sign of a good program. I woke up at 2am this morning and had The Sons of Sam running through my head, took me a couple of hours to get back to sleep.

Started watching this, but it seems to go off the rails with satanic panic bullshit and wild theories by the second episode? Completely lost me, probably won't finish it.

I think TM sort of disappeared down his own rabbit hole. If you see the second interview he did with Berkowitz this is clear, he’s losing sight of everything. It’s an embarrassing mess. Would of loved to visit that derelict Untermyer park sitting in ruins in NYC. Again things like that fire my imagination (I did a search on google maps this morning and did a bit Wikipedia on it this morning). All the conspiracy stories were a bit gaga but again I’m quite fond of a good conspiracy story. Throw in some Manson Family stuff and some English Witchcraft and I’m a happy bunny.

I'm watching the Third Day (HBO) instead. Folk horror/drama with a strong dash of innsmouth vibes (plus some psychedelic imagery) Only two episodes deep, but so far it's fingering a lot of pleasure points.

The Bad Batch. I watch all the Dave Filoni stuff with my son, but I think they are good enough I would probably still watch most of them even if he didn’t want to. I think Dave Filoni should take over everything Star Wars.

I'm two episodes deep too! Totally getting those innsmouth vibes too. I noticed a distant relative playing the part of the preachor as well.

couldn't get into this. the conversations are too quiet, characters are (almost all unbelievable except the main slave girl), no idea what's going on either (except slaves are being whipped). i'd just rather watch roots again

Isn't he already pretty much over-seeing the D+ side of Star Wars with The Mandalorian and the upcoming shows. He's the Feige of SW.

Nice, Rebels is good, too. I really like when they incorporate these old “legends” characters into the new canon. I wasn’t really a fan of the old darkhorse stuff, or the books up until past few years. But damn, now I really love all the thrawn books and the old republic comics from the 90s like “tales of the Jedi”. 
 

For some reason, when I was younger I didn’t like “expanded” stuff as much. But now I’ve really gotten into the “world building” parts of it all.

something in this ouvre but more fantastical and slightly bizarre is "The Good Lord Bird".. based on the book which is a retelling of the story of John Brown with some entertaining fun flourishes.
