The End Of The F***ing World

Really good black comedy, wasn't sure at first whether I'd warm to the characters but by the third episode I was rooting for them. Finale didn't quite go the way I wanted it to but still enjoyed it very much indeed. The reversing over the dog scene had me in tears. :lol:

8/10

Seinfeld Season 1 – 6/10

I have never seen any Seinfeld but after watching a few episodes of Comedians in Cars getting Coffee, I decided I should rectify this. Season 1 isn’t great though, it’s ok but is not exactly jumping out at me, there are only 5 or so episodes in the first season so it wasn’t a big time commitment. :lol: There’s enough there to keep my attention though and (from looking at IMdB ratings) I am expecting things to improve.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency 10/10

I was kinda lukewarm on season 1 on this, but that may have been down to me not really paying too much attention to it. But GOD DAMN season 2 was strawberry floating amazing TV. some of the most insane, funny, well written TV ive seen in ages. Highly recommended. Give it a watch and then petition Netflix to make a god damn third series, god strawberry floating dammit

Tin Star - 7/10

Beautifully shot and Tim Roth is great. The build up and reveal to what was going on was well done but I wish it was possible for new TV shows to wrap up and not end on a cliff hanger. It could have been a nice, self contained thing and told a pretty decent story but instead they are going to try and string out another series.

Oh no what’s he done? Is that why it wasn’t renewed for a season 3? Don’t feel as bad about pirating it now.

There was a load of stuff on twitter from Zoe Quinn too. It was something of an open secret that the guy was a first class banana split and that his dad's name had protected him for years. Not that it was hard to guess, the guy wrote a novel length creeper manifesto about Carly Ray Jepson.

He was also dropped from the Bright sequel after the allegations emerged. I still can't strawberry floating believe there's going to be a Bright sequel.

I liked Bright :shifty: .

I can understand why some didn't though as it was an odd mix of high fantasy and modern US gangster and I normally strawberry floating hate gangster stuff.

Even as a layman, I feel I could write several essays on just how terribly Bright was written, cast, envisioned, directed and performed. It was a disaster on every level of conception and enactment. The meshing of genres was about the only good thing about that piece of gooseberry fool.

Fair enough.
I'd have given it a 5 or 6 so not great but watchable. I only watched it to test out HDR on my new TV as HDR content is still a bit thin on Netflix.
You have to give the film credit for not having Jaden Smith in it as he's just terrible in everything.

Dark [Netflix]

Interesting storyline, but felt like there was too much padding and non essential story stuff in there. Interesting ending and setup for season 2. 6

The Good Place - Season 2 [Nextflix]
Enjoyed season 1 and it had a particularly good ending. Season 2 felt like it was running out of steam and not as enjoyable. Hopefully more of a return to form in season 3. 7

Yes?

I never heard anything about him, so I enjoyed the season. Realistically at this stage every movie or TV show ever made had some sexual deviant behind the scenes.

Yeah, unfortunately that seems to be the case for a lot of people. The allegations against him seem to have been snuffed out again and most people remain unaware of his general awfulness.

Season 1 is by far the worst. Things will start to pick up in season 2/3 onwards but you’re in for many gems if you stick with it.

Did you watch more than a single episode? As I said I was a bit indifferent to season 1 but stick with it. Season 2 is so good I feel like I need to go back and re-watch season 1. And its not a full on comedy, I'm not sure why you were expecting one!

Yeah I agree. Season 1 is very average. Season 2 isn't much better but it starts to pick up by Season 3. Then I'd say Season 4 is probably the greatest series of any sitcom/comedy show ever, there's just so many classic episodes. Then after that it mostly maintains it's greatness, with just a slight dip I'd say in seasons 8 & 9, when Larry David left. They're still very good, but the story lines just got a little too crazy.

Also, Comedians in Cars getting Coffee is great isn't it? Very addictive.

I am about halfway through season 2 and it is already much much better than the first season. I am glad to know that it improves further from here!

Comedians in Cars getting Coffee is great, the short episode lengths really help as well, before you get a chance to be sick of a guest, you are onto the next one. I hope Seinfeld/Netflix make lots more.
