It's watchable, but it's not nearly as good as To All The Boys, and most people and ratings seem to agree.

Here are some reasons why, imo:

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

To All the Boys is an example of a good movie tho that people outside the fan of "bad teenage romance" genre could find enjoyable, Sierra Burgess is definitely not that. I agree with everything you said, and honestly i wished it would have ended where

Alobar, totally agree, that's the way it should have ended. 3/4 of the way through the movie, I was hoping for that ending as well, even though I doubted they would do that.

ozark season 2 was watchable, if breaking bad is a 3 stars michelin restaurant ozark is a decent all you can eat buffet.
They still manage to use what a normal tv show do in one full season in 2 or 3 episodes.

Re: Netflix \"Watch Instantly\"

Yeah, Ozark was much better than I expected. Season 3 will be hard to do well, imo. The recipe is of course Breaking Bad, and they do not want to carbon copy such a legendary show. However, the plot is similar and there may only be the one way to do it correctly, which is spiral out of control and ruin the lives of everyone.

Its Batemanís show. I could accept a less dark less realistic version, but many would hate that and call that a cop out.

I would imagine if you somehow managed to make it through season 1, you enjoy punishment and would be eager for more!

meh its just refreshing, I know it gets tagged along with BB but there arent too many shows of that nature.


I think its good enough to def warrant a watch. Season 2 was better than season 1 since it was a bit more swifter yet set things up well, of course there were some ****ty episodes but I will watch season 3 ecxpectign it to be maybe the worst out of the 3. hope this show ends around s4 and dont extend it longer than it should

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Started watching the 100 a few days ago and other than football I haven't watched anything else. Went in expecting a teen soap opera with a space backdrop but holy crap was I wrong. This show gets VERY DARK. Some of the writing is a bit ridiculous, but the decisions it forces the characters to choose makes it very compelling to watch.

I wouldn't say it's top-tier in quality but it is a very good watch (at least through the 1st 2 seasons that I've watched.)

Meh. Iím gonna watch it. I still think iron fist is better than Luke cage. I finished iron fist season 1. I didnít make it to the end of Luke cage. Invincible man canít beat random low to mid level street gangster because drama reasons... Obviously none of them are daredevil but whatever.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

I am actually struggling to make it through Ozark 2.

It just seems really contrived and set up. I dont like how the oh its going to be a massive ball ache to get this law passed etc when in O1 there was no mention of this problem.

Just feels all a bit tired and derivative now, will plough on though.

Problem is that JCS is being released one ep at a time in UK at the moment and that just seems infinitely superior.

Ozark has the pacing of a soap opera with a cliffhanger per episode.

Watched a few eps of The 100 and I just don't care enough to continue.

Started rewatching Mad Men. Show is so elite, right from the jump.

Does Netflix release shows at midnight? Curious if I can start binging American Vandal in 10 hours.
