    8115 sitting down is bad for you

    Do good things not stay on Netflix very long? I could have sworn I'd seen somewhere that Moana and Swiss Army Man were on there but I can't see them. I'm sure Moana was on over Christmas.

    Oh my!! That last episode of The Good Place was truly great. A couple of times I actually said out loud, watching it alone, "Oh that's a genius thing to have done". Itching for the next series now.

    The key bit where they were all saved to continue their lives so they could prove their worth to be in the Good Place and the bit when Ted Danson reprised his role as an attentive bartender. Fucking genius! Very simple and obvious concepts for the programme but they really made me smile.

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    If you haven't seen it, I can recommend the new documentary series Dirty Money, particularly the one on payday loan millionaire Scott Tucker, and a good one on Trump.

    Just watched another new doc series, The Naked Truth, yet more on trump on Trump and also one on gerrymandering in USA.

    The End of the F***ing World is f***ing brilliant. We binged it last night, absolutely great. Funny and dark and sad and beautiful.

    I'm not quite as sold on aspects of the ending as others on here but yes, Godless was an entertaining watch. Stunningly shot too.

    Just watching a Futile and Stupid Gesture, a film all about National Lampoon. its good so far.

    Godless was good, but what was all that guff about the amazing ending? It ended fine, but amazingly? :hmm:

    I think most people mean the gunfight, which was pretty OTT spectacular.

    I was pleased with this episode as I thought it was running out of steam and getting repetitive. This gives it, ah, a new lease of life.

    krtek a houby how's it going to end?

    Ok, now I get it. Nothing spoiled :D

    We ended up watching the whole thing in one go and it feels like a film. Some great characters and it reminded me of True Romance (and Badlands) in parts. I hear that there may be a second series. Not sure how that would work. As a stand alone story, it's pretty damn good.

    Nice to see the actor who plays Lyn (Alan Partridge's long suffering secretary) in it!

    I recognised that actor (in the garage) but just couldn't place her - of course it was Lyn! That was probably the best scene.

    Meh. The ending of Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid is hard to beat.

    Do not watch Girlboss, should you be tempted to do so. It is atrocious.

    It's bloody annoying they've got that and Cloverfield, but not 10 Cloverfield Lane :mad: :(

    Anyone got thoughts on Counterpart, a guy at work recommends? Started 'Waco', seems good, even though I know the ending. In a similar vein I'm really enjoying Manhunt: Unabomber and Wormwood was a good watch, made me angry.

    sojourner Where's me readers?

    Started watching 'Dark' last night. Only worked out this morning that it is almost exactly the same thing as Stranger Things, just badly dubbed :D

    Good documentary on Postcard Records. Also InSael. Another vote for Good Place with special mention for Dansons wardrobe.

    It starts almost exactly the same thing as Stranger Things and rapidly turns into something very very different and far superior.

    We binged Dirk Gently's detective agency. Was lots of silly fun. Will be watching Same sky tonight, it's a cold war drama. Some decent reviews which suggest it maybe better than Deutschland 83.

    I've only seen the first two episodes, but it's an intriguing premise, and JK Simmons is doing some stellar work on the acting front.

    Well I saw the first episode last night and really enjoyed it, I'll be carrying on watching more of this for sure.
