    I'm not a fan of eric andre, but I watched this anyway. And thought it was mostly stupid. His style for joke telling doesn't work for me. It's like watching a 16 year old telling stories to people in college.

    @taviq I think his "talk show" is fantastic, but I'll admit that after posting about the special, when I actually put it on I didn't last ten minutes.

    I couldn't agree more. But for me, it was just like holding up a mirror to confirm that I'm old. I'm fairly confident that a 41 year old father of two was not his target demographic.

    Looks like the Yin to Rick and Morty's Yang! Consider it added to the list!

    Currently working through both seasons of 'Das Boot'.

    Has anyone else started speaking with a German accent after binging too many episodes in one hit?

    @---NT--- Loved it. So very subtle, and the actual storytelling of the movie is really what gets your imagination going. The accuracy to the time setting is absolutely fantastic, as well. Characters were engaging and it was easy to invest in every major character of the movie. I also thought the ending was just the right amount of spice dropped in for a movie to go with the times it represented, cinematically.
    I also liked what I thought was a sci-fi nod with the WOTW radio station, paying homage to the original radio scare, War Of The Worlds!

    The bit about the radio callsign bugged me. They were in New Mexico, it should have started with a K. I liked it, though, great performances.

    I felt like it was one of the most natural films I've seen in a long time. The dialog didn't feel scripted, but wasn't a garbled mess like most unscripted movies. The story didn't feel like the filmmakers were telling a story, but you were instead watching something as it happened.
    Also, it reminded me of Pontypool.

    Ozark. Jeez. I don’t even know why I watched it. For a while I thought it could be renamed “Bad Things Happen to Bad People Doing Bad Stuff”. There’s no protagonist. There are characters that you end up sympathizing with, but then they do something terrible, and you don’t feel bad for them anymore. If a character is even slightly bordering on being morally good, they either end up dying, or something bad happens to them. All the main characters are so morally ambiguous that it just didn’t make for good watching for me. I don’t need a hero protag, I don’t need someone who is perfect... but at this rate, if any one of the characters (minus the kids) gets killed, they deserved it.
    I’ll be watching Season 4, only because I want to see how it ends... but I won’t enjoy it.

    Ozark was a covid binge and I actually loved it. I haven't watched anything "dark" for awhile and it just worked for me. I get your points...all valid but that's sort of what I like about it. I like that the entire family is going down this dark path. The only person I hope survives is Ruth.

    Umbrella Academy Season 2
    Three episodes in and loving it.
    It is pretty amazing how they managed to go even more unpredictable, have all these story arcs and still manage to give every character enough time to have some actual personal developement and depth. And that just in 3 episodes. Great stuff, can't wait to see what happens next.

    Same, she’s kinda... ruthless (hah) but she’s definitely the most likable of the bunch. She’s definitely done shit, but at the same time a lot of shit happens to her, which I don’t think she deserves.

    I dug season 2 of Umbrella Academy way more than season 1.

    Comment in the Hirota thread reminded me to bring it here that Tread is on Netflix. A documentary about Marvin Heemeyer, a man that felt he was wronged by the system of a small town, Granby, Colorado, and seeks revenge by building his ‘Killdozer’ and reeking havoc on the town. The doc chronicles events leading up to the event by interviews with townspeople, as well as a left behind audio manifesto from Marv himself. Pretty heartbreaking story.

    If you have Amazon Prime I’d also recommend Hell House LLC. Found footage/documentary style movie about a group of friends that throw a Halloween haunted house in an abandoned hotel with a spooky past in a small New York town. Nothing mind blowing, but I found it entertaining!

    I binge watched Indian Matchmaking, pretty harrowing.

    I felt extremely old when I turned this off, turned on the new George Lopez stand up and liked that more. And I like the Eric Andre show.

    Ben Stein aside, I'm all in! I'm 3 in, and was a little sad when I thought that there were only 3 more left... so happy I was wrong! Oh, dreaded time, you are soon to be murdered, like so many slaves for sweet Odin.

    I've been watching through the Showa Era Gamera movies. A site called Tubi has the first 8 movies, but the captions are a little bit off, at times. I noticed that they have a lot of B-movie kaiju flicks I've never heard of, from the 90's and forward, so I need to dig in on some of those once I'm caught up on Gamera.

    Before that, I started a trial of HBO Max, to watch "I'll Be Gone in the Dark," and "Close Enough".

    My verdict on "I'll Be Gone" is that you'd probably be better off reading the book - as the series is as much about the author of the book and the process of getting it from concept to print, as it is about the Golden State Killer. I haven't read the book, myself, but it was strange how it kept cutting back-and-forth between "Here's this awful thing that happened," and "Here's what was going on in Michelle's life, as she was writing and investigating."

    My verdict on "Close Enough" is that "Regular Show" is a much better absurdist cartoon. They're made by the same guy, and they're just similar enough to make me miss the one, without getting me excited for the other.

    Anyone start watching lovecraft country on HBO? Only 2 episodes so far, but definitely a fun watch.

    Lovecraft County is a lot of fun so far. It feels a bit like a 'young adult' book series. Like a slightly older Harry Potter, which of course was much fun as well. Looking forward to seeing where it goes. Feels scarier to be in a house full of Aryans than outside with worgs.

    Keeping me alive as I await The Boys Season 2.
