Netflix Original Series

most tv sucks these days, but there are some shining examples of good writing, acting, camera work, etc... we call those Deadwood and Arrested Development. Family Guy sucks ass, though...

Moderators: Batman, Zero, John Madden, Bob Ross, General Zod, Richard Simmons

I watched the first four episodes of LiS. I’m engaged enough that I’ll finish the season, but it’s not must watch for me. The children seem more mature than the adults.

The second four episodes of The Toys That Made Us just came out. Star Trek, Transformers, Lego, and Hello Kitty.

I wonder how much Bob Budainsky is or is not compensated for his contribution to Hasbro’s TF success. Probably not much. Poor bastard.
I didn’t realize Lego was on the brink of collapse so many times.
I knew nothing about Hello Kitty. At all.

Budiansky, I imagine, is like Hama: the creative guys know what they owe him, but the suits don't.

Ozark. Money laundering Jason Bateman gets in deep with the Mexican drug cartel. Almost done, it has been pretty compelling. I started because forumite (and former self wiener sucker) Mr JJL did some editing on at least a highlight reel for the emmys.

Started Umbrella Academy and binged the first five episodes in one sitting. I never read the comics, so I don’t know how accurate/faithful it is, but it’s been entertaining so far.
I called a “plot twist” by the third episode that hasn’t happened yet, but we will see if I’m right.

It unfolded like I thought it would. The subtle clues I picked up on in the first couple episodes became really obvious as the series progressed.
The cliffhanger ending made me laugh out loud. Nice choice of outro music at the end of the final episode.

After I finished, I wiki’d the original comic and found what changes they’d made. Hazel and Cha-Cha didn’t debut until the second miniseries. The second series and season revolves around the assassination/lack thereof of JFK I’m assuming. And that weird scene where Hargreeves is leaving his sick wife in what looks like the 19th century and there are missiles being launched behind him is some kind of time travel shenanigans they’re seeding in the first season.

Love Death & Robots. Animated anthology series. Each episode between 5 and 20 minutes long. If you ever read Heavy Metal magazine, it’s basically the animated version of that.
