Ted Lasso is the best show I've seen in a long time. We don't deserve that show.

Agreed, solid group of actors but overall pretty underwhelming. Did half the movie end up on the cutting room floor?

Just finished season 1 of The Boys. Loved it.

Also, anyone watch Chef's Table on Netflix? I find it fascinating. It's weird that a show about cooking has such incredible cinematography. The latest set on BBQ was great.

Chef's Table and The Boys are both peak TV. I liked the latest season where it was nothing but BBQ.

Second set of Unsolved Mysteries dropped on Netflix. We watched the first one last night and enjoyed it.

537 Votes (HBO) is very good, and very infuriating.

Finished up Schitt's Creek last night. Great. So is the 45 minute doc that goes behind the scenes of the final season and other stuff such as the auditions.

Now I've started The Good Place. Only watched one episode but it was great.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

Diane Guerrero (Crazy Jane on Doom Patrol). That’s the whole post. :droop:

Sorkin is a pox on political discourse. That **** on the Chicago 7 was such a hit piece on Abbie Hoffman.

I like the old school horror feel, and that each episode is basically one individual story based on an urban legend while the "family story" runs in parallel.

Then I just realized it runs 15 seasons long ! I never would have thought based on the subject and plot that they can make 300+ episodes out of it. So for those who've seen it, is it worth watching all the 15, is there a specific period where you considered a good chance to stop because it became boring/repetitive/soap opera... ?


When it started it was probably my favorite show on TV for three or four seasons. Like you said, very urban legend based with some strong familial issues going on throughout each year.

Then in season four they introduce angels and demons and heaven and hell and Lucifer and while a lot of people loved that aspect of the show, I just never bought in, even as there are some truly classic episodes of TV in there. They add an angel named Castiel who becomes a series regular and he's great, but I just preferred the first few years.

I stopped watching somewhere around season seven and I've always meant to go back, but it's literally like a 150+ episodes to go through. Probably won't ever happen.


Due to a (very painful) incident with my tooth, I spend a few days extra at home (and a lot of sleepless nights) and binge watched the first 2 seasons, and I am non the third. I am really hooked, so far despite the common subject, it barely became repetitive.

However you can see that it was meant to be a few seasons. They could easily finish it on the first in case it was not renewed, or make 3-4 excellent seasons. I can see them making a lot of episodes based on the fact that they released enough demons for 200 episodes, and by adding a few characters as you mentioned and the Heaven&Hell plot. I am curious to see how it plays and if they keep it interesting, but I am pretty sure for at least 5-6 season it will be really good.

So after saying I wouldn't watch it, a week ago I started watching again. I don't remember everything that happened from seasons 8-11, so I figured I'd start at season 12. What I did is I watched the season 11 finale, first couple episodes of season 12, pick and chose what episode to watch based on IMDB ratings, then watched the final couple episodes of 12. Did the same thing with seasons 13 and 14. Turns out that's actually a nice way to get caught up. You catch the beginning and end of every season and a few truly exceptional episodes in between, and I mean exceptional. There's some classics in there that are up with the early seasons.

Youtube TV also dropped them "permanently" after they temporarily got them back for this past season so who knows what's going to happen next.
