this may have already been mentioned, but August: Osage County is on Netflix right now...crazy fucking story and some serious heavy-weight acting between the cast...here's a few bits of the "dinner scene," which i personally always have to watch more than once

Great movie! Even better to watch live on stage

Not sure if anyone suggested this, but watched Prospect the other night and found it well-acted and cool art style for a sci-fi movie:

Been watching the first season of The Terror on Hulu. Incredible.

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but I recently binge-watched Mindhunter.  It's like a budget True Detective and lots of fun

I recently watched this show Dublin Murders on Hulu. I enjoyed it overall, but even though it was based on a different series of books, a lot of it definitely felt a lot like True Detective season 1: Ireland edition. I've watched the first season of TD to death though, so I was fine with it.

Not on Netflix, but HBOMax has so much great shit. Highly recommend checking out Boardwalk Empire. Steve Buscemi does an immaculate job.
This thread makes me feel like I just came across two Juggalos fucking in an alley.

Been watching the "Sons of Sam" docuseries on Netflix about the Summer of Sam murders.

Pretty fascinating and simultaneously fucking weird.

Larry Charles’ Dangerous World of Comedy:

Incredibly well done expose about Comedy/Comedians in the most dangerous (or unfunny) parts of the world.  Super intense and hard to watch at times (especially the part about Liberia), but a fascinating look at some goddamn courageous people and some really shitty people who make comedy out of shitty situations.

The parts about Liberia were insane, the parts about female comedians in Saudi Arabia and Nigeria were amazing.  The part about alt-right “trolls” made me wanna kick in my tv screen. 

Also crazy that somebody I know is in one of the episodes. 

Fantastic and highly recommended.

got sucked in to Derry Girls and was bummed that the two seasons went by so quick--i think i miss about half of what they say, so i watch it with subtitles.

i'm not comparing the times and places, but still, it feels like the stories of a group of teenage girls just trying to be teenage girls during the "Troubles" in Northern Ireland might have some value to young folks in the good Ol' US of A currently.

i dig all of the characters, but the head nun (Sister Michael) at their school is fucking hilarious at times

sorry to quote myself, but i'm in the midst of running through these two seasons of Derry Girls again, and felt compelled to repeat everything i say above...the end of the last episode of season 1 had me in tears--again--last night...maybe i'm just getting old...

edit: yep, couldn't help myself, Sister Michael reading The Exorcist here is fucking genius

That season is incredible. Jared Harris rocks my socks.

For Netflix, Giri/Haji and Flowers are both super good for any other Anglophiles like myself. Will Sharpe is so damn good in two radically different roles
Sinner really is making the US look like some sort of bandana republic.

Been watching this show “Mr Inbetween” on Hulu.  I avoided it for a while because the ad annoyed me, but I finally gave it a chance and it’s really fantastic

Fun docuseries on people who committed heists and how how they got caught, as told by the subjects themselves.

Totally the wrong thread but HOLY FUCK The Green Knight is a transcendent cinematic masterpiece. It’s so good. It’s been a long time since I walked out of a movie theater wanting to be a better person. The visuals, the soundtrack, all of it is basically perfect. Can’t wait to see it again.

On an appropriate note, I just watched Relic. Lovely tense little horror film that I don’t want to spoil but it’s very emotionally poignant and tense throughout. Worth a watch.

Wife and I been watching the Crown. Was really in to it, got to season 3 with the cast change… Nah. It’s too abrupt. I can’t handle the new queen, she’s supposed to be 39, which is my age, and she looks 55… and Helena Bonham Carter is just Marla Singer in a tiara so far.

The cast change is pretty abrupt, but hang in there you’ll get used to it.

Get hungry on it!

It's been mentioned before, but I just started the Tim Robinson "I Think You Should Leave" series and holy shit have I been missing out. Highly recommended.

I’ve ranted on bloodline so many times on how great it is… incredibly underrated. Great intro song, writing, acting. Ben Mendelsohn’s best work IMO.

Can't wait for this next season. Also really looking forward to/hoping they don't fuck up the Cowboy Bebop adaptation. They probably will though.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.
