Yeah, I’m not as into where this is going as I was in the first episode.
There is some **** show potential for sure.
I'm only on S1E3 and ready to join a cult.
I want to start my own, its very lucrative
I really like The Path and it's fun to see Aaron Paul doing something new and Hugh Dancy is awesome.
I haven't watched season 3. I know it was canceled, does it end on a reasonable note?
I'm towards the end of The Path S2 and its been a little slow for me but for some weird reason I can't stop watching it. Just want to see how it ends I guess.
Has anyone else seen the Netflix limited series, The Pharmacist? It’s a pretty good 4 episode documentary about the late 90s/early 00s overprescribing of OxyContin and how it led to the opioid epidemic.
No but we’re going to check it out. I’m watching a PBS documentary on there about the Vietnam War. It’s excellent. Covers the war from all angles. After that, we’re watching The Pharmacist.
Is the Vietnam War documentary by Ken Burns? That one is a real eye opener.
Yessir. It’s great.
Thanks to everyone here. I can't wait to give some of the shows a try when we move next week.
I didn't see any references here to some tv series' that I've enjoyed.
Turn:Washington's Spies (just what it says it is)
Hell on Wheels (building the RR after the Civil War)
Banshee (ex-con posing as a Chief of Police)
Sneaky Pete (ex-con steals another con's identity)
The Handmaid's Tale (cultish)
It's incredibly good, like most of Ken Burns' 20+ docs. Unfortunately, it brings up some seriously sad memories for us old guys who lived during that time.
I’ve heard Sneaky Pete is great and have it on my to-do list.
Watched The Handmaid’s Tale S1. Liked it, other than that they made Yvonne Strahovski as sexy as a dead fish (after watching Chuck years back, I didn’t think that was possible.) Anyway, heard S2 was a train wreck.
Narcos:Mexico S2 was just released so I’ll be binging that. Love the series.
My wife seems to have forgotten about S2 of Handmaid’s and for that I am thankful. I was forced to watch the first few episodes of the second season, and I thought that it was quite boring.
I have really enjoyed Hell on Wheels. I watched it a few years ago so I almost forget about it. However it is a brilliant tv show.
Hell on Wheels was better than I expected it to be. Another older show that I enjoyed was The Shield. I could watch that one again. The same goes for Justified, though it's not that old.
If you like good western TV shows I strongly recommend "Lonesome Dove" from 1989.Its only got 4 episodes but it is one of these movies I can watch many times. Probably one of the best if not the best Robert Duvall's role.
Sounds like a lot of good stuff suggested here, but I was watching the last couple of episodes of Better Call Saul season 4 to get ready for the fifth season premiere, and damn, it’s like talking about the Pats of the last 20 years vs any other team. Like, hey some of Peyton Manning‘s teams, or the Steelers or whatever were pretty damn good too right? And then you’ve got the Pats and it’s not close.
The Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul combination is just freaking unmatched. I can’t believe when I first heard about Saul I wasn’t sure if it was a good idea. Idiot.
Finished it last night. The last 3 episodes were very well done. The only thing that kind of ruined it for me was how over-the-top dramatic the one veteran with glasses was. It almost ruined the segment about the wall when he, dramatically and complete with long pauses, talked about how he... fell... to his knees... and just.... SOBBED when he saw the wall. Come the **** on, dude. Get over yourself. Just talk in a normal way about the emotions you felt and then talk about the wall. Don’t make it all about yourself. I also thought he was the wrong person to interview about Jane Fonda. He was way too soft on her. That C.UNT should have been accused of and tried for treason. Same as anyone other American that hung out with the VC and badmouthed the war effort while poor kids that couldn’t buy their way out were still on the ground and dying. **** the lot of them. I wouldn’t piss on them if I were on fire. I would, however, video tape the affair and laugh hysterically at it.
I was lucky enough to avoid Vietnam but I have many friends who served (and two from my home town who died there). The thing that bothered me most about that film was seeing how LBJ manipulated the info to help his re-election.
