Been trying to watch all the George Carlin standup specials. I think there is 13 of them on there. Only available through 9/15, so get on it if your interested. "What Am I Doing In New Jersey?" is one of my favorites along with "Jammin In New York."

Well over the weekend I started to watch (again) the Tudors. Last attempt I stopped around Season 3 but it's been so long I had to restart from the beginning.

I love the costume & set design of period shows, even their jewelry / accessories are interesting to me.

Showtime has put up many more of their original series for On Demand, which also translates to Netflix, I believe. One show I am looking forward to re-watching, once I've forgotten enough of the details, is the Spartacus series, esp. Seasons 1 & 2... Lucy Lawless is superb in this!

Plus you get more Margaery.

Been trying to watch all the George Carlin standup specials.

I plowed through a lot of those back in the day. I definitely remember loving Jammin in New York. I could stand to watch those again.

Maybe I'll check this Tudors show out. Lot's of people have told me I'd like it.

What I'm kind of enjoying, but not entirely sold on yet is the new Netflix From Dusk Til Dawn series. Anyone watch any of that? I'm about 4 episodes in, and it feels like it's trying a little too hard to cop things right from the movie. Whereas Fargo feels almost like a new story told in the Fargo universe, this just feels like the directors trying to stretch a 90 minute movie into a 10 hour series and the only real substantial changes just feel like padding. I don't think the acting is great, especially the lead character, who it feels like is just doing a subpar George Clooney impression the whole time, and it's like "hey, leave the subpar George Clooney stuff to George Clooney." The thing is, I kind of really like the movie, so having it just stretched out to 10 hours isn't really a bad thing in my books, but I wonder what other people think of it.

^^The thing to me is: is Dusk Til Dawn really worthy of a TV show? It’s an…okay…movie and kinda weird in how it dramatically shifts from a clever Tarantino movie to a pure action movie. And what else can you get out of that?...They stumble into a bar and fight vampires…that’s the plot. Fargo has a lot more going on and a lot to so that’s probably why that works. Weird decision. Out of all the Tarantino movies that I’d adapt to a show, that would be one of the last ones I’d pick.

I think a pre-Reservoir Dogs television show would be awesome.

For some reason, I started watching The 100 and surprisingly really enjoyed it. I seem to have a hard-on for post-apocalyptic shows where humanity has to start over.
I've been doing this a long time and have seen lots of changes most of which I can't fucking stand...but I still go anyway because I'm there for the MUSIC and so I tolerate all that other bullshit because I DO get the point. So there :-)

Black Mirror is a seriously fucked up show.

Watch at your own risk.

I just came in to say the same thing.

Wowza,...what a an awesomely disturbing show.
Kinda like a modern day Twilight Zone.

Highly recommended, but as Mr. Breathes says,...watch at own risk.
I couldn't stop thinking about it all day.

It was the UK version. Loved White Bear, may be my favorite. Or the 15 Million Credits (cant recall correct title).

I have yet to see the Christmas Special yet.

Yeah, definitely the UK version on Netflix.
Haven't heard about a US version. Don't know what channel would even air it other than HBO. :crazy:

Haven't seen the White Bear episode yet, but man,...what a crazy show.

While not nearly as good, The Color of Money is a pretty great sequel.

I have given up on House of Cards. It is a joyless affair. Well written, but sterile. It is directed with pinpoint precision, but with zero warmth or heart. It feels like it was written by a Japanese computer programmed to create art, but is incapable of love.

^Like that. Am having a difficult time getting through this season. Watched the first two or three episodes and seemed to have lost interest.

^ I also suffered through the first half of season 3... but the ending half is excellent!

I felt like they had nothing left to accomplish, but once the weather incident & special ops mission happens... it is on!

I've read a lot of good stuff on this...I guess the guy who plays Kingpin is really well done.

It feels like it was written by a Japanese computer programmed to create art, but is incapable of love.

This is an excellent description...I need to steal this to describe other things.

Wilfred ended. I'm sad. The 4th season was a little obnoxious taking to many weird, wannabe twists that went nowhere, but still, that shit was funny.
