I got to watch The Night Manager.

I've heard such great things about it, and the description of the show makes me think it'll be right in my wheelhouse.


It is.

Do yourself a favor. Don't watch Apple TV's Servant.

It's a good show. It's a well made show. But it is hopelessly mysterious and ambiguous. And until the series finale 2 years from now, nobody will know what's truly going on. Wish I never started watching it.

Screw you M. Night Shyamalan.

Haha. I binged season 1 after the season finale aired. When this season premiered I watched the first episode and then decided I’m just gonna wait for the season to end before I watch anymore. It definitely isn’t something that benefits from waiting week to week.

What’s everyone’s opinion on The Man in The High Castle? I’m maybe halfway through season 1 and it’s okay but I wouldn’t say good or great. Does it get better?

If you liked Bewitched you'll like WandaVision.

Man, Verizon on demand for TNT has the snowpiercer S2E1 playing S1E1, infuriating but the Honor on Showtime is good watch so far (first 3 ep)


Ok, the TNT app has the correct episodes for snowpiercer season 2. Still good.
The honor got a little too unbelievable once Carlo got caught but I’ll still follow

Watched The Equalizer after the SB. It has promise. I don't see Queen Latifa doing many seasons if it's picked up.

Latifa is an excellent rapper and surprising singer, and she’s an outsized (don’t mean that as fat shaming) personality and performer with a ton of charisma, but like many crossovers, she’s a remarkably meh actor with very little range and a penchant to play her characters as her idea of her stock persona.

So much for looking forward to watching The Equalizer . . . .

Give it a peek. It's kinda like a Mangum PI-FBI-McGiver. The 2 I watched had heartwarming endings. It's evolving. She's going to be Private and CIA.

You are so right. I'm too hooked to stop now. It's soo good. And soo frustrating at the same time. I just want the whole story to leak somehow. I'm torturing myself watching it week to week.

Or just go watch the original series (which actually had Mark "Hector" Margolis as a regular).

I finally got around to Dracula on Netflix (from the creators of Sherlock on bbc). I really liked it and think anyone who is a fan of their Sherlock show would enjoy this— they similarly took a character that everyone knows and somehow made it feel fresh. I also love that their “seasons” consist of 3 90-minute episodes so it’s essentially a movie trilogy worth of story.

I also started Bonding (also on Netflix) and am extremely impressed with it. I’d bet money that eventually this blows up in popularity. The only bummer is that some episodes aren’t even 15 minutes long.

I'll try to find that series.

I just watched the 3rd episode of The Equalizer. I like the series. If you like do-gooders you may like the series. The episodes I watched involves families in trouble. It also highlights the family life of Robyn McCall and the difficulties of doing good and raising a child.

I just discovered The Sinner on Netflix. The whole show is like peeling back an onion with so many layers, and Bill Pullman is outstanding.

Watched the debut of The Falcon and the Winter Warrior. Didn't live up to the hype. The opening scene had action, not much after. Maybe it'll pick up.

Interesting. I have always found Pullman to be either really really good or really really annoying, no in between.

He's really really good in this. Like a dark and damaged Colombo.

I thought the first two seasons were incredible. Just finished the third..definitely not as good but watchable. Each season is a new story with Pullman as the only consistent.
