"The Watcher" on Netflix is really good. Based on a true story. Basically a family moves into a nice house in the suburbs and all of their neighbors are creepy or insane. It's a mystery/thriller.

Veeeeeery lightly based, but works well on its own

One of the better things I've seen on Netflix for a little while. Tuf to stick landings I guess.

agree, I enjoyed the architectural basis for the show and when it got to episode 5-6 and layed out the letter premise I thought that was a good piece of story telling

Decided to start watching The Handmaid's Tale. Ho-lee-shit. I'm not sure which documentary about the future of America is scarier, this or Idiocracy.

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

Prepare for that shit to totally fall apart after season one. Unless you like a star with a hero complex and episodes completely made up of shots of people walking across courtyards and person clenching their jaw straight down the camera lens

I'm on to season 3. Don't worry, I know that you pretty much hate everything.

Lol I like 90% of things just the other 10% I really dislike. Handmaid's tale also is something I thought was so fucking good so it stings a bit more to get over it lol

Not on Netflix but I am quite enjoying "Ten Year Old Tom" on CBC gem (on HBO max in US I think)

It essentially feels like a reworked version of "The Life and Times of Tim" which is one of my all-time favourite animated shows. Yes, the animation is dogshit but that's kind of the point and the dialogue is fucking hilarious.

^fuck yeah

Been really liking more basic sitcoms lately Avenue five and people of earth are cool sci fi ish ones. I'm not dying laughing but appreciate the effort and they have funny bits.
Also go back to inbetweeners, Mitchell and Webb look and peep show pretty much every year. Always great altho wish Mitchell and Webb show didn't have the laugh track

Itís not a reworking, itís a prequel.   I believe it was revealed in one of the last episode ms of Tim that his real name is Tom.   All of them are so goddamn funny.   

Itís weird this is considered shitty animation, but I find it so much easier to look at than Family Guy animation (and to an extent Big Mouth)

How can it be a prequel when the kids have smartphones and use gofundme etc?

Whether it is or not isn't too important anyway because it's still great. I like how some of the smaller roles are big names like John Malkovitch and David Duchovny. Nice to see other fans of Steve Dildarian's work.

The animation has never bothered me either but it was a lot cruder in Life and Times of Time. I don't think they ever showed characters walking or moving across the screen lol. That was the biggest difference I noticed so far seeing the kids ride bikes and just walk into a room. In Tim you'd hear footsteps then it would cut to whoever entered or they'd use other creative ways without actually moving the characters.

Season 1 was excellent but now itís devolved into Elizabeth Moss rapid eye movement. Sheís great at it but enough already.

If youre one of the people who managed to get thru the recent British/french war of the world series (the one set in current day not the one set a hundred years ago) the new third series is actually alright. Better than that show deserved really

I think itís a spiritual sequel/prequel.   Itís the same guy, but thereís not really supposed to be a narrative theyíre following or anything like that.   I donít think theyíre setting up to a point where he meets Amy and Stu or whatever

Welcome to Chippendales seems interesting enough for a limited series.   I liked the Pam and Tommy series bc I had no idea about the Seth Rogen story and where that went and this seems to be following a similar manner.

I've been loving Welcome to Chippendales and also thought it was similar to Pam and Tommy. For me, it was new information that Paul Snider and Dorothy Stratten were involved in the start up. It was probably invented but the scene where Steve gets the idea for the club and why they are they are even there in the first place was so great.
