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

i binged the first 4 on monday while recovering from wisdom teeth extraction, then caught the finale that night. HOLY SHIT that was a great show.

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.

The bottle episode with the crazy kid? Yeah, that was nuts. I watched that in real time right after Thrones and thought Barry was way more entertaining that night.

Yeah, great show. I know the story, but whoa, I did not know all the personal stories.

Really enjoyed Chernobyl - seems like an odd and terrible thing to say.

Deadwood 2-hr movie was also very good.

The season finale of Billions was pretty good, if a little predictable. 

City on a Hill has potential. 

Big Little Lies was good, but I can't imagine too many of you watching that one.

Started rewatching Star Trek:Enterprise, definitely the best Star Trek series...pity it only lasted 4 seasons.

I enjoyed the Deadwood movie. I thought it was a pretty damn good send off.

I loved the finale of Billions. Good resetting of the board for sure. And we are back to the Axe v. Chuck war...

I agree City on a Hill has potential...I'll give it a shot. 

I'm enjoying the new series of Luther on BBC America.  

Anyone give the new Black Mirror episodes a shot? I didn't think they were awful, but just ok.

I watched the Ken Burns documentary on the Central Park Five and then the Netflix show When they See Us. Holy shit...its heart breaking in how closely it tracks...

S3 of Designated Survivor on Netflix was decent (certainly better than S2)....although they could tone down the woke SJW themes a bit.  Actually, the liberal agenda they were pushing (for a supposed "independent square in the middle") was pretty over the top.

randomly last night i started watching the office on netflix again. I got about 5 episodes into it and i realized that NONE of the jokes from the first season would be allowed on TV now. People would white knight the shit out of those jokes and Steve Carell would be ruined.

Oh 100% it wouldn't survive now.

 

Half of the "that's what she said" would be labeled as "toxic masculinity". The episode on diversity where he has everyone where a "race" on their forehead would get the whole show shit canned.

Watch episode one immediately after you finish the finale.
