Agree. Think 1-7 are really good but the end falls off pretty dramatically

SETV >>>> OOTV: NOT APRIL

How do you guys remember all the names of the episodes? The first half of the Star Trek one was incredibly promising. I liked the metal dog bc it was totally badass but obviously that episode could have done much more than have a few dumb victims. Agree with others that the whole season lacked the real edginess and creativity of the previous.
And the dating one was ok but I seem to have missed why everyone loved it so much.

i've mentioned this in a few places, but would recommend alphago. it's a documentary on netflix about AI and the chinese game go.

Re: SETV >>>> OOTV: NOT APRIL

I watched it last night after the recommendations in the prem thread. Definitely worth a watch but I was a little disappointed about how basic the program seemed to be. It didn't seem like they were doing anything that ground breaking (though I know nothing about computers), you're definitely not going to be able to apply it to taking over a government any time soon.

It was interesting how much sedol seemed to learn from playing something better than him. Also the move that won him game 4 was cool, which he said was the only move and which the computer thought had only a 1 in 10000 chance of being played by a human.

Didn't get why so many people were upset at alphago winning, the computers are going to get better than us at some point so isn't it better that we progress to that point sooner rather than later?

Re: SETV >>>> OOTV: NOT APRIL

Anyone watch "Vikings"? I heard it was good and tried starting it but it's taken me about 10 days to get through the first two episodes because it is so ****ing boring. I guess I was hoping for something like "Rome". Does it get better, should I just quit now? I noticed it's pretty highly rated and has many seasons.

It's learning the most complex board game in the world in real time. As it said in the show the amount of permutations in a game of Go is unreal, and it was thinking 60+ moves ahead. It dominated the best human player in a 2500 year old game in less than two years after the project started. That's not amazing to you?

I think it was a sense of pride, both among Go players and Koreans, he seemed to be a national hero. People tend to be shocked when new tech comes along and does something better than we can do

I never watched before it went into syndication, but I've been catching Brooklyn 99 on TBS in reruns and it's hilarious imo

Re: SETV >>>> OOTV: NOT APRIL

Watched the (very) first episode of black mirror today and it was without a doubt one of the worst epsides of television I have ever seen. I refuse to watch more and can comfortably LOL at anyone who recommended this show.

Yeah that’s gonna be a no for me dawg.

Re: SETV >>>> OOTV: NOT APRIL

I mean Black Mirror has an overall theme about technology, but each episode is its own thing and has practically no relation to any other episode.

The Entire History of You

White Bear

White Christmas

San Junipero

are all absolute must watches and have nothing to do with the pig ****ery

Highly doubt anyone who hates on PIG ****ER will like the series. That's one of the better episodes.

bus, see this conclusive ranking and use it as a guide

there are also clear tiers between the top 6, middle 6, and bottom 7 (bottom 7 tiers into 3-4 if you want to be picky)

Top of list checks out otherwise.

fair enough on 15mm. that is basically the ryan/stafford/cousins part of the ranking. not top tier but better than most and either could rank higher on a given day.

Correct.

Not sure why BMstans can't get over the fact that not everyone likes the show.

Itís middle tier but much worse than the top.

There are several episodes worth skipping.

If you donít like the best episodes thatís a YOU problem, and means you like Shea Serrano and Bill Simmons.

I watched the entire first season when everyone was telling me how sick it was and I didn't like it. Not gonna invest 8 more hours of viewing cuz people tell me there's like 2 sick eps.
