Has anyone seen Barry on HBO?

my friend suggested I watch it since he loved it. I watched the first two episodes and I’m kinda 50/50 on it. Not sure if I like it or not. Going to keep watching and hope I start tonlike it more. 

Loved Barry. 

It pays off as it is both funny and really serious in spots. I rally enjoyed the last three or so episodes.

I liked Barry.  It's good, but not good enough for me to recommend with so many other options out there.

Though it gets major points for being different, as is typical of HBO.

It is eight 30 min episodes. It is not that big a time commitment especially with the second season coming at the end of the month.

I finished the OA last night. The season 2 drops next week and wanted to check it out and I have heard mixed things. I heard the ending was frustrating. And, yeah it was. It is 8 episodes and the first 5 were great. Very deep, sci-fi level stuff. But, then it all just falls apart. The last three episodes leave a ton of answered questions, go off on tangents that do not make any sense, and then introduce something out of left field that is shocking in the finale. 

It is worth checking out just to see the first few episodes and then the trainwreck at the end. 

The season 2 trailer looks like they may have fixed some of the problems.

Just finished rewatching True Detective Season 1.  I was still drinking when I watched it the first time, so I remembered very little of it.  At least the continuity and sequence of the story.  Man, that is great TV.  Gearing up to watch Season 3 next.

I ran through After Life on Netflix last night. It's solid, but very melancholy. I love series w/ 30 min episodes.

Billions was great on Sunday. It went straight into the craziness. 

TV is picking up now with Billions back. The OA returns this weekend. Barry and VEEP return on 3/31, 4/7 brings Killing Eve and the week after that is GOT. 

Oh, and Stranger Things S3 trailer dropped this morning.

Anyone else experiencing posts not showing up? Yet it says unread andnyou see last post was XX amount ago by someone. Then in the thread it’s just stuff you’ve seen already? 

EDIT: Seems to be sitewide as everyone in the college forum was experiencing it yesterday and today.

I finished the OA Part II last night. What a weird and mess of a show. In some parts it is great, and others parts it is a disaster. There are so many threads that are going on it is hard to follow sometimes and the ending was kind of like, ok, come on. 

I now started watching Luther, the BBC crime show staring Idris Elba. I am on the second series and it is a pretty good dark crime show.

Just started the last episode of season 2 of 12 Monkeys. How is there 2 more seasons of this show? Seems like this could easily be the last episode of the series. 

Whatever happened with this?  Did you bail or just decide it wasn't that good?

Ended up watching through the 3rd season then realized the final season isn't on Hulu yet.

Just download it.  Although I'd say you need to let S4 breathe a bit - way too much happening too quickly to binge in just 3-4 sittings.

Anyone watch the madeleine McCann documentary series on Netflix? That Portuguese detective is a fucking prick. Feel like it very obviously wasn’t the parents??
