Speaking of clinical depression, I binge-watched the entire fourth season of Bojack Horseman yesterday.  That show can be very funny, but also very, very dark.  It's also one of the best Hollywood satires to ever air on television.  I think it and Rick and Morty are in a dead heat for best animated series of the decade.

Big Little Lies was terrific!
 
 

 

 

I was happy to find out that I was wrong about two things:

 

I thought the little girl that was being bullied was being abused by her father and

I did not see Zoe Kravitz being the woman to push the husband down the steps :o!!!!

 

I'm excited for season 2. I want to see where Nicole's character goes from here.

^ We started watching Twin Peaks a while back and then got distracted with new seasons of other shows we follow on Netflix.  We haven't resumed watching it yet, but we should!

 

...once we're done with Broadchurch, which has been our hurricane binge watching show of choice.  David Tennant with his actual accent!   :wub:

People either seem to love this past season of Twin Peaks or think it went nowhere fast.  Mind you, if someone's looking for actual plot progression in a David Lynch production, they're probably barking up the wrong tree.

So for anyone who loves history.....Ken Burns :wub: has a remarkable documentary on The Vietnam War airing on PBS. Seriously folks, this was such a pivotal time for our country. Great and not so great changes happened during the late 60's early 70's that changed us as a people and nation forever. I've seen a lot of docs on this time period and remember a lot as a young child as well, but this film interviews all three sides of the conflict honestly and fairly. There are many long episodes so if you fall down the rabbit hole with me put on the popcorn and prepare to settle in. It's quite a long ride but worth every minute of it. Come on, it's PBS :wub:!!!!!

Mindhunter on netflix

 

i've watched the first two episodes and so far it's great.  visually very fun - captures the spirit of the late 70's. well cast. great music. graphic but knows when to stop and change the channel.

Done with Mindhunter -thought it was A+.

 

Now I'm on to Alias Grace - which in a way is Mindhunter 19th century.

I hear great things about Mindhunter. Watched the first episode and didn’t click with me. Might need to give it a couple more chances

i thought Alias Grace was terrific - better than i expected. i think they could spin off another season or 2 - enough characters and potential content there. i'd like to know more about jeremiah. looking forward to finally reading this also.

 

stranger things season 2 will be next up.

Just finishing up Punisher on Netflix.  Very, very good!  Next up after that on Netflix is Godless.

I hear from several of my close peers that "Game of Thrones" is supposedly this SUPER DUPER TOTALLY AMAZING series. How good is it, and how likely would you guess that I would like it if I watch it?

I have enjoyed Game of Thrones. not as much as Breaking Bad or Twin Peaks or even The Walking Dead. i think you'd probably like it.

 

I didn't enjoy Stranger Things 2 as much as 1, but it was still ok.

 

I am currently wrapped up in The Killing. Patti Smith makes a cameo in episode 1, season 4, and she's a big fan of the show.

GODLESS :wub:  Plesantly surprised by it, but it made me miss Deadwood.

 

There's almost too much good TV now.  Between GoT, The Crown, Glow and all the others I can't even begin to remember, Netflicks and HBO are absolutely fantastic, and not so good at getting me off the couch lately.  Maybe I should take these shows to a gym and watch them :P

we watched "David Bowie: The Last Five Years" on HBO last night. it covered a lot more than the last five years - some great video I haven't seen before and it went into depth on his final projects. 

I didn't know that Michael C. Hall (Dexter) starred in Bowie's musical Lazarus. 

 

also - stumbled onto Travelers on Netflix. pretty exciting time travel stuff!
