Any one watch the Netflix zombie show Black Summer?

I want to give it a shot, but feel it will be just a lame version of the Walking Dead.

I really liked it. Surprisingly good.  Kind of a cross between walking dead and z nation.  i watched it in one day.

I did find it interesting that Twitter (the most negative place on earth) hates this guy more than most. Ratings show an 8.3 with him versus a 6.1 the day they didn’t air him. And probably less in reality when many probably tuned in not knowing it was “Teachers Week”.

Thats about a 2.8M less people watching when he isn’t competing. When he is, it’s also the highest ratings they have had since 2004 (I think that’s Ken Jennings).

The episode of Billions from over the weekend was an all timer. Very freaking good.

Chernobyl was truly incredible from start to finish. One of the best overall shows I've watched in years.

I concur.  Completely true and frightening.

People knew this was true yesterday at noon. I'm still confused about why you wanted him to lose.

No, it had already aired in multiple markets and he did an interview with Darren Rovell that was published around noon. 

I'm confused because his run made for good, entertaining television. Now it's back to the same old show. Don't get me wrong, I like Jeopardy and watch it occasionally, but it's always fun when something exciting comes along.

I was pissed Rovell started tweeting that shit so early. I get some markets play it early but was still annoyed. And yea, I was dvr'ing each week to see how good he will. Now I'll probably watch the recordings if I'm bored, but definitely won't be as exciting.

Yeah it was a shitty move on his part.

I was pissed. Nobody follows Rovell for breaking news like that.

I knew it was leaked he would lose, didn't know Rovell played a douchebag role in it but I'm not surprised at all.

Finally caught up on Barry.  Enjoyed Season 2.

But episode 4, or maybe it was 5, was one of the most ridiculous shows I've ever seen anywhere.  And it was absolutely awesome.
