    Rather tha slogging back through, how about some lists for series. Here's mine:

    In Betweeners
    Peaky Blinders
    Sneaky Pete (Prime)
    Frontier
    Badlands
    The Last Kingdom
    The Good Place
    Haunting of Hill House
    Ozarks (S1)
    Shameless
    Season 1 of most the Marvels are decent
    Orange
    The other one by The Inbetweeners group
    TPB

    Game Over, Man for movies. Funny.

    Netflix has dropped some fantastic documentaries recently. All the stuff on Monty Python, Stanley Kubrick, Orson Welles and Walt Disney is 10/10 must-see IMO. I've been going thru a lot of their doc's on musicians -- Just got done with Rush, these are ****ing well done documentaries...


    The New Orson Welles Doc They'll love me when i'm dead is a ****ing show-stopper If I've ever seen one. 11/10. Surely it'll go over many heads, but man when Orson says "it's all in the editing" I couldn't help but smile ear to ear. He was a truly incredible talent. I didn't realize he was 25 when he made citizen kane til watching this!

    Also if you haven't seen Children of Men. Highly reccomend. It has this car scene which is a ****ing top-shelf marvel of camera-work. Cool story too.

    BASEketball is on Netflix!!!!! ****ing 10/10 masterpiece. The opening scenes are especially hysterical. "Looks like a dockers commercial in here"

    Swish - Wake Up Bitch! You're my new best friend!
    Squeak - Really? are we going to the Zoo?

    I started watching a show called The Good Place starring Ted Danson and Kristen Bell.

    It's extremely well done. Hilarious. I'm almost done with season one and every episode literally makes me laugh out loud. This is a very pg rated show by the way so you can watch with kids and it's a great one for the Mormons.

    Looking it up on rotten tomatoes it shows season one with a 92% approval rating and season 2 and 3 both with 100% approval rating.

    I started for the lols but the character development and not having a clear good guy bad guy dynamic sucked me into the plot. Great idea and done well...

    I think they should do a home alone along the same lines... make culkin some sort of criminal... I’m here for any attempts at 80s and 90s nostalgia

    Not Netflix but has anyone watched AMC's A Discovery of Witches yet? The books are probably my number 1 favorite and I'm leery to watch a show butcher the story. Plus, from pictures, the guy they have playing the main vamp doesn't fit the profile.

    If you haven't seen the show then skip it for the books and tell me what you think.

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the show, so maybe I’ll have to look into the books.

    What's it like? The imdb description calls it a romance, but then the top user review doesn't make it sound like that.

    Oh it's definitely not a romance, not in the conventional sense anyway. It's more of a stalker thriller, with slightly satirical overtones. The male character is a creep, but the show makes him really compelling in spite of that.
