Lol, They're not commercials, they're promotional videos to help enhance your experience. I cancelled a few days ago.

I love Norm Macdonald. His humor has always entertained me. I am glad he landed a show on Netflix. Hope he got paid millions, he deserves it.

i personally believe South Park is superior (best for best). Rick and Morty, to me, is vastly better but not really as comparable to simpsons as south park is. there is also probably a generational difference for most viewers as well, considering the oldest millennials were like 3 or 4 for the start of the seasons you're talking about.

to avoid a complete derail i'll leave it, if you love Groenig's stuff, i personally do not, you may like the new one if you haven't watched it. i however, think it's entirely skip-able.
And yet if I were to have you killed, I would be the one to go to jail. That's democracy for you.

Amen. He came to NH last year and absolutely killed it. Paid ~$30 for a table seat which included beverage service.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Bert Kreischer's special came out on Netflix today. Aside from the story at the end, it was pretty meh imo.

I suspect like The Machine, the story is an exaggerated version of the truth but funny nonetheless.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

You can opt out of those unskippable commercials btw. You have to go into Account -> Settings -> Test Participation -> Off

Maybe if enough people do that, plus complain, they will cancel this whole 'trial'.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

I kept reading about those unskippable commercials and wondered why I wasn't having that problem. Now I know.

No commercials is exactly why I get Netflix. With commercials and some shows being released weekly, Netflix is becoming no different from a TV channel.

So annoying. Today it doesn’t even give a description at all. It said watch if you like so and so other shows.

I don't mind when a TV episode autoplays after the previous one finished so long as it is from the same TV series.

I hate it myself. On Netflix you can set it so it doesn't autoplay but I haven't figured out how to do that on Amazon prime?

Obviously late to the party, but I finally caught up on Narcos. God damn, what a ****ing fantastic show. Season 3 is the best yet.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

If you liked Detectorists or UK Office check out Derek. Reminds me a lot of Detectorists in that it’s not really a comedy but has bits that will make you laugh. It’s a mockumentary like The Office and stars Ricky Gervais.

I recently read Norm McDonald's book, it was very entertaining. I'm not really excited about him having a talk show though.

Thanks. For some reason can't do this on the TV but could change it on the website. Serves me right for not checking there first.
