The first half of season 4 of Stranger Things came out this weekend.  If you like the show, you will really enjoy it.  So far, a great season.

It's good, just long. 

I'm 5 in.

Finished We Own the City, and damn Jon Bernthal was fantastic. 

Very good series too.

Sundays Barry was also so funny.

Stranger Things E1 seems to indicate that they are going a bit more “R” rated this season.

It is excellent.  I’m really looking forward to the second half in July.

Watched "The 100".  Very entertaining, like what Walking Dead should have been in a post-apocalyptic world (minus the zombies).

Although one of the most predictable shows I've seen.  And while the science and writing have issues more than a few times, the acting and execution are generally so excellent it doesn't matter.

It is deceptively dark, very dark.  First 4-5 seasons are great, the last 2 are sort of a re-boot and almost a different show (not awful, but not that good either).

I'm 40 mins into 7. It's good, just long. 

It's just a lot this past weekend.....Obi Wan, Barry, and Top Gun were also on. Starting an episode and seeing it is an hour plus is a lot.

I'd rather they space these put more, and shorten the episodes cutting them up, making them 10 instead of 7 this round. 

Obi Wan is great by the way.

That’s about as accurate description of The 100 I could possibly write. I liked the show but had the same complaints/flaws as you mentioned. 


Good show, I would recommend to anyone who likes sci-fi, dystopia, young adult stuff (think hunger games)

That it is. Last 30 mins are great storytelling weaving it all together.

Third episode of Obi-wan was awesome. 

I realized the Boys comes back tomorrow.

Also, Peaky Fucking Blinders is back on Netflix on June 10th.

Anyone watching Gaslit?  I find that entire Watergate chapter interesting, so I’m intrigued.  Any feedback?

Finished Bosch: Legacy. Wife not into the grimmer ST, so got thru 3 episodes last night. Then it will be Boys/Obi-Wan. Lots of TV watching recently.

I've just started the show a bit ago and agree. Ultra-violence mixed with really dark humor (A-Train's visit to the cancer ward as a Make-A-Wish replacement for Translucent was utter perfection!) is always a great combination for me. Looking forward to the rest of this stuff.

Homelander starts as a psycho. And he somehow gets more and more psychotic each episode.

Show gradually gets more X-rated with increased wtf moments.


S3, E1 there is a scene....so fucked. I couldn't spoil it if I tried to explain. Just keep watching.

The Lincoln Lawyer and the Terminal List have both been solid. Netflix and prime.

I binged the Terminal List this weekend and really liked it. Not your typical shoot em up, kill em military man gone rogue. Some neat story writing and plot twists.

Started The Old Man and am impressed already halfway into episode 1.
