My posts are better.
If Apple wanted some family friendly material representative of their brand, they should make a show about the manufacturing of their phones. Child friendly!
Do you live under a fucking rock? The whole story was under a microscope, day in and day out. There were probably federal officers in Chevy Tahoes blaring by your office taking him to and from court 4 days a week.Among other things, I learned that the prison where he died is a 5 min walk from my workplace.
Wow, chill. A 5 minute walk in Manhattan covers a lot of ground.Do you live under a fucking rock? The whole story was under a microscope, day in and day out. There were probably federal officers in Chevy Tahoes blaring by your office taking him to and from court 4 days a week.

Haha yeah! There's also Brooklyn Bridge smack in between.Wow, chill. A 5 minute walk in Manhattan covers a lot of ground.
gotta check it out.But I'd be remiss if I didn't post more video of the Beef House to give you an idea what's in store:
If you've ever had to endure something like the TGIF line-up, anything by Chuck Lorre, or the Disney Channel, this could be therapeutic.
Yeah man dude... Westworld turned out to suck.Haha yeah! There's also Brooklyn Bridge smack in between.
I appreciate the enthusiasm Pippin .
Wrapped up S3 of Westworld this afternoon. This was the least complex season and it felt like everything went downhill. Weak story, there was no world building as such to explain how AI affected this world and big reveals fell flat. Maybe they could've taken more time with it - breaking this season into 2 parts. The characters and their motives are dumbed down. Fights were boring and drawn out - you'd expect AI to be quick and strong but not in this season. There's just less of whatever you may have liked in S1 and it never improved.
Also wrapped up S2 of Ramy that's on Hulu. We put a hold on our subscription for 6 months and forgot about it. Got charged and went "Oh, we forgot to cancel ... now that we have it for a month, I guess we can watch S2 of Ramy" and it was so worth it. I loved S1 because it wasn't outright funny in the normal sense. S2 feels more real and it gets a lot darker. It also dedicates a full episode for other main characters and those were some of the best this season, especially the one about his racist, misogynistic uncle Naseem. Mahershala Ali is awesome as the Sheikh.
gotta check it out.
Read your post and checked it out over the weekend. It's definitely one of those shows that benefits from binge-watching and binge all of S1 we did. Agree on the part of your post in spoiler tags - definitely a standout. And the landscape of everything, colors (ambience) are just great. I have to figure a way to turn my sub-woofer off cos there are a lot of those mid-bass booming moments through the show. S1 was engaging and well-paced - nothing felt like a filler. Each episode pushed the narrative further. I do have a few questions but I'll hold off till I catch up with S2 and S3. So far, I'm intrigued by Charlotte.Anyone else gonna check out the last season of Dark on Netflix? It's landing on Saturday.
I don't normally check this thread, so I missed your message about this! Dark is a great show, and I enjoyed the first two seasons a lot. Watching the final season this past weekend was kind of surreal, because there was so many questions left to be answered and ends to be tied up that it would be herculean task to finally do so.Anyone else gonna check out the last season of Dark on Netflix?

Glad you mentioned this. Watched the whole thing in one night. Im not a huge fan of Tim and Eric (their style gets old pretty fast and I think they limit themselves by staying constrained to the Adult Swim brand of absurdist random comedy) but when they hit, it's a home run.If you've ever had to endure something like the TGIF line-up, anything by Chuck Lorre, or the Disney Channel, this could be therapeutic.
Glad you liked it. Yeah, if you find the Awesome Show to be a bit much, this is perfect because it forced them to follow a more traditional format even as they're taking it to absurd conclusions, my favorite of course still being when Eric becomes a big boy bus driver and drinks that bullshit decaf instead of the rocket fuel he needs, which results in hilarious hi-jinks thanks to a very special shirt. It's a slow burn of absurdity. =)Glad you mentioned this. Watched the whole thing in one night.

This is his design.Hannibal -- I really feel like I tried with this one. Got maybe 5 episodes in. While I do quite enjoy Mads on screen in most scenes, the big problem I have is with Will Graham, AKA Edgelord McTryHard. Holy shit, this guy. His over-the-top serial killer re-enactment scenes are cringe-worthy every single time.
Well, it's Hannibal Lector for better or worse, so that's sort of baked in. It's what else they and Mads do with Hannibal that's unique from the books or films that has more sustenance.And the sheer number of times just in 5 episodes that Hannibal cooks up a nice dish for an unsuspecting guest, then dramatically pauses to watch them savoring the taste of human meat, it's just so damned corny. I think it's already been 3 times, and it's pretty much the exact same set up every time. And yet they somehow manage to overplay their hand every time ("ya see what we're doing here? ya see it? you get it? YOU GET IT?!" "I get it.")
Sounds like you're more satiated then you let on, even if you have picky taste. Unless Hannibal himself does nothing for you, I would recommend completing the season since you've half finished this portion already. You're basically past the appetizers and at the precipice of the main course as Hannibal goes from being sort of a background character in his own show, an out of place disruptor in a straight procedural, to slowly hijacking the entire feast in increasingly bizarre ways. I think the second half of season 1 is among the series' most delicious, especially the final confection, so if you're not hungry for more by then it might just be, uh, it tastes, like... shit food to you? Fuck, I'm already full on the food puns. No wonder they had to stop the show after 3 seasons, I don't know how they kept up their appetite for it.I understand that the series gets better. Maybe I'll chew through the remaining episodes of the season one day, but I mostly found it boring, with very little to sink my teeth into.
