"Mindhunter" is basically "True Detective" X "Mad Men", and even though it's not as good as either of those shows, it's still pretty enjoyable to watch.

Finished it yesterday. Didn't mind the slow pace and the performances were solid throughout. I really enjoyed Zodiac and this unsurprisingly reminded me of the movie.

Noticed they're starting one of those Talking Dead type of shows for Stranger Things. Ugh.

Zodiac, Fincher movie from 2007 with a true crime story and really great acting. I must've missed this when it came out because it's definitely my cup of tea and it was my first time seeing it tonight. Fantastic movie, top notch all around. It's a pretty long movie, but it was never boring to me.

Inadvertently ended up binging on American Vandal. I admit I've got a problem. Actually pretty damn entertaining though...

Been hearing mixed reviews on Stranger Things 2, anyone care to shed some light on that?

Planet Earth 2 kept me entertained

I should probably see what all the hype is about stranger things.

i enjoyed the first season, but i didnt think it deserved the type of praise it got. to me it felt too much like an ABC family version of a scifi show but with a little more swearing and slightly better writing. season two though, i thought it was great. rarely a dull moment and every episode ended with a cliffhanger that pulled you right into the next one. all the characters were great, even the ones i didn't like from the first season. winona is seriously looking better and better as the years pass. total babe.

i dont usually like all the super popular shows that everyone raves over, but i give this one the thumbs up. its pretty predictable, but definitely entertaining. i can hardly sit still and pay attention for an hour long show and we killed everything from episode two onward yesterday. never done that before.

They canceled House of Cards because of the whole Kevin Spacey sexual assault. Never really got into the show but I'm kind of glad they did this but kind of not glad too. I mean Kevin Spacey shouldn't be on the show anymore so I would think just to keep the show and kill him off because everyone else on the show didn't do anything wrong. Then again Netflix is usually a tight group so I would think they have other plans for the other actors for upcoming projects

Binged it on Sunday, It's overall 9/10 for me
I think these bugged me and may have snagged other people (no Spoilers)

- the dramatic introduction on #8 for ep 1?  They barley show her 
- Too much crying from 11 during the whole show..kind of cringe worthy at times
- How everyone story merges in the end was too predictable

Show wasn't that good after season 3 IMO, last season did nothing for me.  Spacey coming out was no surprise either

Agree with everything JB said about Stranger Things.  There was no better way to spend a hungover Saturday.

I read somewhere that Netflix was planning on pulling House Of Cards way before this Spacey thing happened, but it likely sped up the process.

Mindhunter was the shit and I cannot wait for season 2.  Tried to watch s02e01 of Riverdale because I was into season 1, but after watching actual good shows with good acting I couldn't do it.

1922 was really good.  Watch one episode of Fargo, seemed decent, might watch more.  Hopefully something else that's really good comes out soon.

I always wanted to give that a try because I do enjoy some CW shows, like the DC comics ones. The flash is definitely the best one out of that group but the others aren't really that exciting. Ill watch the others if I have nothing else to watch. Guess I have my answer with Riverdale now

Netflix is getting rid of It's always sunny next month. So if you never saw it or want to give it one last go then do it. Guess they got a better offer from Hulu, so if you have Hulu good news for you.

Have no idea what the fuck is going on at Netflix, they seem to be getting rid of way more shows recently than they ever did last year. They also took of some seasons of Family Guy off and even though I'm not the biggest Family Guy fan, it was just an easy show to have on while sleeping

Yea, you'd expect an adolescent girl with such a normal childhood to be emotionally stable, right?

Kevin Spacey tried to feel me up at a bar once.  He tried to feel up any other young guy within stumbling distance.  He's probably an alcoholic too, he was literally passed out on the sidewalk when I left.  Pretty sure his reputation is widely known in the industry, so Netflix acting like it was some kind of secret is bullshit.

A lot of networks are pulling their shows off Netflix because they are going to be doing their own streaming service with their shows. I read some big article on it, and how because of it, Netflix is going to try to make a lot more original content to keep up. But yea, it sucks in the meantime. The shows and movies they added for November was pathetic.

Finished season 1 of Big Mouth recently.  I thought it might be a bit too crude for my taste based on the 1st episode, but it ended up being pretty witty and funny for a show based on dick jokes.  Being a big fan of Kroll Show probably played a part as well.

The Witch was a decent thriller/horror movie, but I don't speak 17th century English so subtitles came in handy.

Gf has been watching This Is Us, based off a recommendation from my mom, sooo yeah.  The fact that I don't mind it makes me question a lot about myself.

Rewatched Mad Max last night and have been making my way through Freaks and Geeks.
