  1. I saw this was at #1 on Netflix US yesterday, so I imagine someone else round these parts has seen this. For those unfamiliar, Tiger King is a documentary series on Netflix centered around a number of people involved in the private ownership of big exotic cats in the US. The characters in this series are completely insane, and even when a somewhat normal person shows up, they inevitably get sucked into the insanity. I think this series suffers from the reverse of the typical Netflix show in that it's completely insane in the beginning, but the later episodes cover events that can't quite live up to the simple introduction of the characters. Still, it's worth watching through to the end and only 7 or eight episodes. For anyone that doesn't want to watch the series, here's a story the Post did last June on the whole affair.
  2. Might as well start it off with this thread ? what have you guys watched while the boards boards have been down? me: Rampage 2.5/5 Logan 5/5 Flower 3.5/5 Set It Up 4/5 (seriously, this was an actual good romcom)
  3. Early reviews for Apple TV+ shows are coming in and by and large it seems they're fine, but lacking any must-see shows. Engadget has a nice overview of the shows, and suggests that if there's one to watch, it's Ronald D. Moore's alt-history show For All Mankind. Overall reviews for The Morning Show, Dickinson, and See are all a bit more mixed. With only the few shows available and nothing urgently great, I imagine Apple could have some initial trouble getting subscribers. Still, worth remembering that everyone that's bought a new Apple device after September 10 gets a free year. Since my iPad was bought in April, think I'm going to hold out on paying the $5/month.
  4. Just as a heads up to anyone else who was looking forward to this as much as I was: Vulture did an interview with the "President of Entertainment Networks" for AMC, Sarah Barnett. That interview can be found here and contains a few interesting pieces of news about various AMC shows. The news about Better Call Saul is summed up in this article, but the gist of it is that they are delaying the next season until 2020 because Vince Gilligan is tied up with the Breaking Bad movie. It seems like a very reasonable thing to do, IMO; as much as I love binging on a season of BCS in the spring, I'd rather they delay it to ensure the standard level of quality. Also interesting is that they noted that this may be the last season of the show since Breaking Bad was also capped at five seasons and things are quickly catching up to where they were in that show.
  5. Didn't see this posted but if it has been feel free to lock. Love this show and I'm looking forward to it coming back.
  6. https://comicbook.com/starwars/2020/03/20/star-wars-the-mandalorian-ahsoka-tano-rosario-dawson-casting/?fbclid=IwAR1HNh-Ypr-OIwj7STXEjYqzQl6j5DLICGhwa7zAvQPYlg3-rmArDU5f_F0 Did not expect that.
  7. The new season airs April 15th 2020 with 10 new episodes!
  8. Just about every long-running or critically acclaimed show has at least one major stinker in its run. It's just inevitable when you have so many episodes, some of them are gonna be duds. Sometimes, these episodes can be just as well-known as the great episodes. I'll start with Code of Honor from TNG. Everything, from the racist undertones thanks to the baffling decision to make the actors playing a primitive alien race who lust after strong women black to the terrible fight scene makes me wonder how anybody involved thought this episode was a good idea.
  9. Anyone else watching? The first two episodes dropped last week (it's on FX through Hulu) of this 8 episode miniseries, with every episode written/directed by Alex Garland (wrote: 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go, Dredd; wrote/directed Ex Machina and Annihilation). It's really good so far! It strangely feels most similar to Nicolas Winding Refn's miniseries Too Old to Die Young in it's slower pacing and methodical filmmaking but with more energy and momentum. If you're a fan of Alex Garland, I highly recommend checking it out.
  10. Based on the comic series by Garth Ennis (Preacher). I never read the series, but I'm a fan of Preacher. I'm all in for this.
  11. Set in 1977, Hunters presents us with a world where a number of Nazis have been hiding in the US, working their way into positions of power for some evil purpose, and the eclectic group that is hunting them. The cast is lead by noted Jewish actor Al Pacino, but features a number of memorable faces, if not necessarily big names. The show itself brings a very Tarantino-esque vibe, complete with over the top violence, revisionist history, and needle drops. Unlike Tarantino, I haven't found that Hunters navigates it's wildly shifting tone very well. It can go from oddly exuberant, fourth wall breaking sequences to somber holocaust remembrances multiple times in the span of minutes. I've been enjoying it enough to keep with it through three episodes, but I can't say it's my favorite thing on TV right now. Anyone else watching Hunters?
