Just gotta thank whoever recommended The Last Kingdom. Just finished it last weekend and it was incredible. Got a colleague hooked on it too. Really great show and saw it was renewed for a 4th season. Now on to find another show!

Anyone got some good recommendations? I'm not into creepy shows.

Been watching Get Shorty. Pretty good. But I like Chris O'Dowd anyway. Much darker (more violent) than the movie.

My wife has been watching Schitt's Creek. From what I've seen it is pretty funny. May go back and watch from the beginning.
My wife and I started watching a couple weeks ago. I love it. Some seriously laugh out loud moments. Chris Elliot as the Mayor is my least favorite part. Eugene Levy's son kills it.

I assume you've watched Vikings? If not, do so.

I tried watching it and wasn't that impressed. Watched the first few episodes. I had a hard time getting into it. I started watching Marco Polo. Only watched the first episode so I'll see how that goes.

Give it time. It's better than The Last Kingdom (which I also enjoyed) imo. Characters take a little while to develop. I remember getting towards the end of the first season before I started anticipating episodes.

Thanks, I'll definitely give it a second chance. Another friend of mine had said something similar when I had told them I had finished Last Kingdom.

It's only 6 episodes so it better qualifies as a miniseries and can be knocked out on a rainy afternoon, but Bad Blood was pretty decent.

Watched the Motley Crue biopic "The Dirt" this weekend. Schlocky for the most part but entertaining enough to keep me involved the entire time. I mean, when you see a girl squirt in the first 3 minutes, how can you not be intrigued?

Watched The Dirt last night. Entertaining if you were a Crue fan.

But, man, that Ozzie bit at the pool. Did he ever refute that?

Finally...interesting there is no reference to Pamela Anderson anywhere except the scene where Heather Locklear broke off the marriage to Tommy.

Season 1 is fantastic.

First half of s2 is great.

2nd half is weird af.

S3 is good. But not great like the first season and a half.

But the kingpin is the absolute best character on that show. He is magnificent.
I'm midway through S2. So I guess I'm ready for it to get weird. Kind of ready for Matt and Karen to finally...do what they should.

Kingpin is the best comic book villain in film since the Joker in Dark Knight. The ending of the Daredevil series is very similar to the likes of the main themes of dark knight.

Absolute shame they canceled the show, should definitely bring the characters over to the “real” MCU one day.

All the streaming numbers were way down. Even for punisher 2 and dd3. Which is interesting imo.

I understand it for something like JJ2, which was just god awful.

But dd3 and p2 were both at least rock solid.

Daredevil was only canceled because Disney is making their own streaming service. Other marvel Netflix series may have been canceled due to just being bad, but the main reason was just starting Disney+.
All 3 DD seasons were amazing, minus parts of S2.

It was still way down on streams. It has to be concerning.

But I do love DD. S2 would’ve been better, but they made it totally not fit with the rest of the universe.

Well if people won’t watch this Daredevil series, then they won’t ever on any streaming service. This stuff won’t be topped.

I agree with you. 100%.

But the numbers are the numbers.

I’m hoping there’s a season 4. My guess is Hulu.
Nah they’ll reboot probably into a series that ties into the MCU on Disney+ when it comes out. They already announced a Winter Soldier/Falcon series, as well as scarlet witch/vision.
