Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Finished umbrella academy last night, it was pretty good, too bad it suffers from the purchase X episodes model, either edit it to one less episode or shortens some and it would be much better like most netflix shows, at least it s not remove 3 or 4 like most marvel shows.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Friends From College was canceled. My gf started watching it last weekend and I got in on it after several episodes. Kind of ashamed to say I kind of liked it.

Then you would not like How It Ends for this reason alone. It is pretty bad for several other reasons as well (it's dystopian than horror).

I don't have anything bad to say so far.
I watched episode 1 of this show and enjoyed it. Agree with the Watchmen type of comparison...basically a dark superhero show.

Wasn't a fan of this one either. Wish there was a bit more explanation with regards to the stuff behind the killing. Disappointing given the director did Nightcrawler, which is a great movie.

Re: Netflix \"Watch Instantly\"

I felt like Velvet Buzzsaw had a point or a moral that I couldn't figure out. The sphere death was a let down for as obvious as the build up to it was.

Really enjoyed this so far (only 1 episode to go) and i hate most super hero programs. Unique/complex story line that kinda, just about made sense in the end.

It's about time (Arrested Development). I had forgotten they only released half of the last season.

“The Endless” was a fun sci-fi/horror watch. Very much recommend this if you like either genre.

I just started, watched the first two episodes of the umbrella kids, and I have just one question.

What the hell is with the talking chimpanzee and how no one thinks that's unusual at all? That's crazier than the superpowers.

On the topic of cats I thought The Lion In Your Living Room was good. Sort of a PBS type documentary, but was concise, well done, and interesting.

Russian Doll was sick but I may have enjoyed it less if I wasn't also a sexy 30-something east-coast Russian with hipster friends and a crippling sex addiction.

Checked it out last night. Thought it was great as well. Also watched their movie “Spring”. Love the two guys that make these movies.

Looking forward to their next one.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Watched Fyre last night and thought it was great. Would have liked to see more footage and detail in it, really interesting subject. I guess I'll watch the Hulu version next for that.

The Fyre Festival CEO is probably one of the worst people to ever exist, such a scumbag. A complete moron too -- hmmm I'm indicted by the FBI for a scam what's the solution? Another even dumber and more hopeless scam!
