David Fincher basically said there isnít going to be another season of Mindhunter, despite all the foreshadowing in the first two.  Apparently it was too expensive to make and wasnít getting enough views?  Seems like odd reasoning for a show thatís mostly filmed in dark rooms and that the entire internet raves about.

Itís more that heís too busy to give his input and direct and eps so he ended it.  Fincher uses a fuckton of cgi you wouldnít think about and basically blew up two Go shows for HBO over budget issues.  Quality isnít cheap. 

If youíre ever in Hollywood/Los Feliz heís got a pretty notable office building off Hollywood and Gramercy.  Youíd recognize it from the beginning of LA Confidential

The way I understand it is that Netflixís percentage decreases every season. Unless they are certain that a particular show is drawing eyeballs to the service, it doesnít really matter if the show is successful because the economics stop favoring Netflix.

Unfortunately this has left a whole lot of incomplete series. It would be better if creators started operating under the assumption they will be writing a limited series.

Thatís definitely a thing they do, but three seasons is usually where they cut it off unless the cost is exorbitant like in Altered Carbon and that Baz Luhrman show about the birth of hip hop.   Fincher has an unrivaled leash in Hollywood and pretty much calls his own shots to the point where he can call the shots on his posters, etc.   heís got a deal with Netflix (Mank written by his dad that he directed, premiered Friday) and Netflix keeps their creators happy and will let him do what he wants to do especially if he wants to keep doing it with them.   Keep in mind, HBO didnít go forward with Utopia or Video Synchronicity bc of budget issues so Iím sure Fincher likes being at a place that gives him a blank check.   Netflix wants legitimacy in its film department and heís part of the respectability

Also, itís on Starz, but I recommend checking out Go.  Not great, but a pretty fun 90s movie

I feel like I talk about Ti West on here more than skateboarding, but I just watched In A Valley Of Violence.  Really well done western, and the dog actor (dogtor?) gave a better performance than most stars in MCU movies.

I can't vouch for the trailer, but the whole movie is awesome and i just wanted to give some context.

On Netflix I've recently watched and enjoyed The Great British Baking Show, Terrace House, and Midnight Diner. On Apple TV, Ted Lasso and Earth at Night in Color.

Handmaiden is a good Korean movie that has some over the top lesbian sex scenes, but mostly isn't as violent as normal Korean films if your partner finds that troubling.

Manhunt - deadly games is a really legit series. I really enjoyed the way they made the first season on the unabomber and this season didn't disappoint. Led me to research all the crazy anti fed militia groups in north carolina appalachians.

The new season isn't that great, if that makes you feel any better.
I really liked Jessie Buckley (the redhead from the latest Charlie Kaufman movie) in it though.

Not netflix, but that John Wilson show is incredible, I watched it all last weekend.
Really captures how grotesque and alienating modern life is, but is still hilarious about it.

Yea i was going to post the same but, Chris Rock is actually really good at his role in this...the story seems like they're making shit up as they go.

Andrew Schulz saves America on Netflix was pretty funny

LOVE How To.  While it does show how bizarre modern life is, I feel like he has a warm empathy towards his subject.  Besides the sight gag clips thrown in, he really seems to respect and want to understand the subjects.

Probably one of the sole reasons to get HBO Max...

Wire, true detective, sopranos, curb, eastbound and down... just the tip of content they have.

This really got me.  I'm primarily a working musician (or was, before COVID), leaps and bounds better at music than skating.  My biggest fear has always been losing my hearing or fucking up my hands.  The ending was touching and haunting at the same time.

I watched the Lie on Amazon Prime last night.  I'd give it like a 6/10, but with some of the filler trash you see, I've come to tolerate mediocre movies more than ever.

I got excited that the parking lot they stay at in the beginning was the indie-ish theater in Danvers, MA I used to go to when I lived in the North Shore

Not ashamed to admit that I watched the Kacey Musgraves Christmas Special on Amazon Prime...  I loathe Christmas but I had to watch this due to her being my one true love and all (and I am a legitimate fan). She is dreamy to say the least.

Started watching The Good Lord Bird on Showtime... really good so far and Ethan Hawke is great as John Brown.  The directing is a little Tarantino-lite which can irk me a little, but excited to keep watching it.

I'm sure people have already talked about this since I'm late to the show, but damn, Ozark is some hard shit.

My gf and I just finished season 1 and loved it. It was sort of a weird transition going from finishing Arrested Development (for the 2nd time), then seeing Jason Bateman in such a different role.

Thanks for the rec. Watching this now. I've been obsessed with her since I first saw her on the Grammy's.  Nothing quite like a liberal country artist who loves weed and is beautiful to boot.  Be still my heart...

The Expanse on Amazon prime is really good...

Also I am partial to The Grand Tour too

(i wish they would make a second season of John-Claude Van Johnson though)
