Thinking to start American Vandal tonight. Anyone watched it?
Yeah, it's worth watching. Enjoyed it.
Thanks. I put it on but my partners face did not respond well to it! One to watch on my own but partner will prob catch some of it & ask annoying questions!
We started Designated Survivor instead.
Take a drink every time Keifer says "Damnit" or takes his glasses off to punctuate a dramatic moment.
I'm also really enjoying The Good Place. Up to S1E5 so far.
also when Mike from the security detail marches into the room saying "Mr President ..."
Oh you’re in for a treat later on...
YOU'RE ALL WRONG!!
I agree. I've watched the first 3 episodes of The Good Place and don't think I laughed even once. I just don't get it.
I watched it all, cos I really wanted to like it and was told the denouement was amazing. It wasn't.
I need to find another new sitcom to watch. One that's funny.
DS really should be shit but I rather enjoyed it.
I kind of agree. I hated myself for watching all of S1, like 20 episodes.
Time: The Kalief Browder Story
Heartbreaking documentary about a young man wrongfully arrested, then remanded while awaiting trial for 3 years on Riker's Island, the majority of which he spent in solitary confinement. Unsurprisingly he is very damaged by the time he's freed
Cheers for the spoiler.
Anyone know when season two starts?
The ship sinks at the end of "Titanic".
Cheers for the history lesson.
Nope , it's actually quite good . Not breaking bad good but keeps the standards up throughout .
I started watching 'boys dont cry', been meaning to watch it for a while but I dont think my timing is appropriate cus it's pretty fuckin rough but there was an error so I will finish it another time
Clearly you’re the one who is wrong
Oh Lordy, there's a remake of Dynasty just popped up on there. Someone's going to have to take one for the team here. Any volunteers?
I wonder if it'll be relatively restrained or just go straight to "Fallon gets kidnapped by aliens"?
look...don't find it then ask someone else to watch it
There's no fucking way I'm watching it.
Yeah, me neither. I only watch serious, intelligent programmes.
Oh look, the new episode of Designated Survivor is up
Lasted about 15 minutes with Dynasty. I suspect they are going for a "knowing wink" angle, but nah.
I acknowledge your sacrifice.
I was recommended Dynasty by Netflix. I have no idea on what basis, because it's otherwise decided I only like sci-fi, and indiscriminately.
It was the banner at the top of the page, which is often just their new show regardless of what else I've been watching. (I only watch Netflix on my PC tho)
I was sent a notification on my phone. I'm outraged; I was more of a Dallas man.
The connoisseur's choice was, of course, the short-lived but exquisite Flamingo Road.
*mumbles something about being at an impressionable age and Morgan Fairchild*
Documentary called Naga: The Eternal Yogi.
Don't usually go in for mysticism and spirity stuff and found much of this pretty cringey, but I've been to Varannasi where there are loads of Sadhu's wondering about, so I gave this one a watch as I didn't really understand what their deal was at the time.
Anyway I really liked the last few minutes of this doc where the Sadhu's all get together for their big three-yearly Sadhu-Fest, hundreds of these ash-covered wild-eyed mystics like raging-joyful dreaded-up children running around utterly free. Wouldn't be one myself mind as they live a hard and naked life, and for living-saints their dreads are quite manky. But a really fascinating insight I thought. Raw Naga Culture.
