What series are you into on Netflix?


#61

Ah fair does. I just found it a bit dull. Might pick it up again but probs not aha


#62

Watched 8 episodes of this now, very compelling in a Zodiac type of way.


#63

is it based on the john douglas book? what’s the setup/format?


#64

surprised that people think he’s a dick tbh, I’ve been a big fan for years and his ability to engage with people around the world along with having a laugh and respecting their customs is really second to none.


#65

I started this a few years ago and was like…this is a bit shit but oddly compelling? Until I was so hooked and still miss it :sob: but not enough to rewatch it


#66

I love Bourdain but can totally see why people think he’s a dick - he’s basically the American Clarkson, flashy prick who jokes about murdering prostitutes.


#67

except, he doesn’t.


#68

Except in basically every episode of the Layover…


#69

Just about to start Mindhunters. I really liked Zodiac, so hopefully this is similar.

In Making a Murderer news, we interviewed with one of Brendan Dassey’s attorneys for a nanny share! She turned us (and our ace nanny) down :frowning: The lady was on screen in a couple of episodes. She confirmed the next season is Dassey-centric and that he’s probably not guilty and the victim of a good ol’ fashioned rail roadin’ - but we all knew that already. I didn’t have a chance to badger her further for an Avery take.

just finished the last episode of that. fucking brilliant series


#71

I watched the first episode of AV with Wor Lass and thought it looked really well done.

I’m half an hour away from finishing Iron Fist. I love the comic but this is terrible - don’t bother watching it. Badly written, badly paced and plotted, mostly badly acted.


#72

Jane the Virgin - glad Netflix picked this up after E4 dropped it after two seasons. Just started season 4 today as they’re doing it in line with the US.


#73

I’ve not read the books but I’m really excited! Avasarala… the casting is so frustrating. She’s got the looks and the gravitas, but I find her delivery SO poor (I remember when the actress was in 24 and had the same problem)

I really flip flop on Amos. Alex is my fave though :sparkling_heart:


#74

Alright yep, i’m all over mindhunter.


#75

Did anyone watch Lady Dynamite?

Season 2 is coming soon and the first season was just one of the greatest and most clever comedies have ever seen. I absolutely love it and have watched it maybe 4 times over and never get bored/notice more things each time.


#76

I really enjoyed it! Maria Bamford is adorable.


#77

The Diane voice :heart_eyes::heart_eyes: and that whole episode really
I should watch it again probably as I’m not sure I followed it all properly. I’m usually cooking or doing chores or whatever when I watch Netflix comedies


#78

It took a while for me to get used to Avasarala too but I adore that actress so much. It’s all about the gravitas. She has absolutely miles of it. It’s a shame she isn’t more like the book version. She took a step towards it in S2 with a little sweary tirade but she is such a potty-mouth (I was about to write ‘in real life’ then) in the books.
I hope you enjoy them. They’re actually excellent and Alex is even more adorable. He’s such a cutie with his Mariner Valley drawl.
I love Amos completely but get the clippers out, mate. Your hair is far too nice and fluffy. Get it gone!


#79

Did you find the bar scene in the first ep a bit… off? My TV nearly gave up after that.

It’s certainly picked up after a slow start. We’re both pretty excited about it.


#80

the romance is the worst aspect of it i think, but i’ve read the book and have a big interest in the guy it’s based on, and now it’s getting more into silence of the lambs/zodiac territory it’s really picked up. i’m not crazy about the main character or the actor playing him, but everything else is pretty good.
