Can’t believe I gave up on Saul basically right when it got good. Picked it back up and already on E6 of S4. Gilligan is a phenomenal Producer/Director.

I still haven't watched season 2 of Dark.

I've been watching Community lately.

I've been watching Community lately. 

I have heard Community is funny with a similar feel as The Office, Parks and Rec, and Brooklyn 99.

 

Is that a fair assessment? If so I will have to start watching it as soon as I finish watching Star Trek: The Next Generation (haven't watched it since I was a kid).

 

I will say that the stories and provocative/moral compass thinking in The Next Generation still holds well and still is relevant. The special effects look terrible, at least through 1.5 seasons.

AMC doesn't have rights to streaming of Saul.  How fucking stupid is that?

It's funny, but it's not on the level of Parks and Rec and The Office for me. You'll enjoy it.

Very pumped for dark S3. Supposed to be the final season right?

I started community a few weeks ago, and enjoy it. It’s not even close to the office or parks and rec, but similar styles I guess. I think I’m through season 1, but that was like 30 episodes or something crazy like that.

If you like The Office and PnR you have to watch Brooklyn 99. Same writers and is hilarious. 
 

On par with those other two for sure.

Community is decent, just ok. 

I've been rewatching Party Down on Hulu. LOVE IT.

I also started watching Fauda on Netflix. It's pretty good, if you can deal with subtitles. 

Another quick 30 min comedy I recently enjoyed is People Just do Nothing. Idiotic Brits running a pirate radio station. Cringy, yet funny.

I agree. It has a lot of really funny bits. But a lot of stuff falls pretty flat for me. I'm enjoying it, but it's not a show I'll rewatch over and over again like the others.

What’s the deal with HBO Max? I was looking through the library of stuff and a lot of it was stuff already on HBO to begin with.

Watched the first 3 episodes of the new HBO show with mark ruffalo, I know this much to be true. 
Saddest god damn show I’ve ever seen. It’s good, but highly recommend NOT watching. Lol

Finally got around to starting Sopranos. Better late than never I guess.

Have you watched After Life?  It's sad, but it's comedy too.

You should. I don’t like it nearly as much as others, but it’s still excellent. Right around 10 for me all time.

I read like 10 articles about it. I still can’t figure it out. It has way more than HBO, but you basically have to be AT&T customer to even get it? I dunno.

It’s all on Netflix. Not sure you have that or not.

After Life is on my list. The Ruffalo show is just straight depressing.  There’s not a single happy scene in the first 3 episodes.
