  • Catching up on Nicola Walker: Last Tango in Halifax - Christmas special and series 5: Enjoyable British comedy, good mix of heartwarming and more biting humor.  Special mention: Tony Gardner's amazing performance The Split series 2 - Disappointing.…
  • Tears of the Sun - Started well then went into fantasy land, a regressive white colonial-ish, white savior fantasy land at that.
  • bizmarkiefader said: We just hit season 6 of Supernatural and people were not kidding about the dropoff after the first five seasons. [...] Hopefully there's some stuff in later seasons that makes it worth it. I hear there is but I stoppe…
  • Teresa from Concord said: Are they really doing a sitcom every episode through the entire season? I realize I’m the only one on this thread already over that gimmick.  I don't think so; TV shows these days tend to be quick to change thing…
  • kingbee67 said: I double dog dare someone to call the number on the house for sale sign in the intro. I’m afraid too, it’s a New Jersey number probably Kevin Smith’s. He’s probably waiting for calls.  And potentially have to listen to Kevi…
  • Beyond the Wire - 90% good cgi-fest action movie, 10% bad "high-brow" talk about moral dilemmas and drawn out "dramatic" scenes.  Every time someone says it's morally justified to kill the few to save the many, take a drink.
  • Watched the old Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy miniseries (easy to find on YT). Builds in intensity as it goes.  Worst part was when characters would spout unaltered paragraphs that worked better on the page.  Otherwise good and a real time capsule of 70…
  • I started Giri/Haji but so far it's pretty ridiculous.  The humor is good, much of the cast too, but the show couldn't get out of the first episode without throwing out suspension of disbelief.  Love British crime shows when they are believable but …
  • I watched The Holiday for the first time (so I could listen to the public podcast).  As a movie IMO it could have used maybe a third less dialogue and more showing, even if that resulted in a bit longer movie.
  • Death to 2020 on NetflixPretty good so far
  • Wonder Woman 1984.  Didn't work for me, unlike the first one. 
  • I feel like I should try the podcast because I thought the first season was great TV, the other two not so much.
  • I enjoyed it as a big budget, high concept B-movie.  I watched it with subtitles on so that may have helped understanding.  It's a shame it is (IMO) being marketed as some amazing Work of Art instead of the ultimate "spies with gadgets" movie with…
  • redlancer said: After I put my brain back in my skull, I realized that there could be a good size chunk of people watching this who have never seen Star Wars movies before... (emphasis added) Seems unlikely to me, given the original trilogy …
  • Doctor_Nick said: It's as if you have your party of player characters who've have been playing the entire campaign, and in the final showdown they just sit and watch the Gamemaster's awesome non-player character, who just shows up out of the …
  • mykhailo said: What are the chances, out of all the on-duty shifts in all of the break-rooms on all of the planets in the galaxy with an imperial base, that Migs would randomly choose the one where his old boss would happen to be getting coff…
  • Having them all show up and hang out together is a good way to explain why they didn't stop the First Order from forming.
  • Hunkulese said: The episode was fine, but it's almost offensively bad how silly the terminal was. Is the face scan just there in case a Mandolorian from a specific cult just happens to want to log in? All that's necessary to access the networ…
  • TheJudoCrab said: While the anus with teeth and (special edition version) tentacles might instill fear in your enemies, it probably wont sell well on hats in Disney World. Does make me want to see a Lovecraft Country theme park tho'
  • Eh, maybe it will have been rechristened Sarlacc 1 in honor of his survival/defeat(?) of one.
  • John Hamm?  The guy who looks more like Homer Simpson every year?
  • Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth must be one heck of a martial artist to have come out of that fight with her fingers attached 
  • Clearly the Rabbi not getting back into his car and driving away after seeing the dead body at the service station is the strangest thing that happened in episode 9.
  • asmallcat said: Not quite through the episode yet, but where did the Tusken Raiders get wood for their ballista? It's a desert planet! They live in the "Dune Sea!" There's no trees! I understand the whole wanting to show primitive tech, but t…
  • I thought it was fine, but it felt more heavily aimed at a younger audience than the episodes in S1.  Early days, of course.
  • awookiee said: Yeah I just rewatched that part and on 2nd watch it is clear she grazes his head. Still not sure how that would knock a person out but it's much better than what I made it out to sound like. Still doesn't change my feelings abo…
  • awookiee said: Specifically about this past Sunday's episode (#6 I believe). How did Gaetano not die from getting shot in the back of the head. When he is tied up it almost looks like it was just a graze but then how did he get knocked uncon…
  • Miller's CrossingWatched because of the discussion on the Fargo podcast.  The main character was a little too cool for school for any tension to build up about his repeated interactions with the same group of characters with conflicting goals. O Bro…
  • On another forum people were complaining about episode 2's corridor (why didn't they just close the gate and kill the zombies inside) but I think there were too many zombies and they would have come through the weak points in the corridor if they di…
