Yes, Stranger Things 2 was great. It was exactly what it should have been, and if people expected different they are retarded.

I still need to check out Mindhunter, myself. Been hearing good things.

And the immature side of me adored American Vandal. I thought it was one of the best things ever. From a creative and "study-and-reproduce" perspective, the writing, acting, and wonderful take on the genre was pure genious, imo. Any time you can extend a dick joke into 8 clever episodes, you've got my attention.

And I had totally forgotten about OZ. They was a good show. I remember quite enjoying it when it was actually on, but don't remember half of the stories. I might have to go recheck that one.

I never watched Oz either. Never had HBO while it was actually on the air, and never really followed the hype enough to check it out after the fact. If itís really as good as Symbols says, maybe Iíll stream it. Pretty sure itís on Amazon Prime, along with the other non-current HBO shows.

Honestly I know virtually nothing about it. I thought it was a documentary for years. Still not entirely sure itís not a documentary. Lol. So, yeah. Iím not cool.

it is on prime and it’s fucking great

and it’s almost a documentary ha ha ha. well not quite— i’ve never been in prison so i couldn’t say. but it does feel very realistic.

one thing that’s great is that, being a late-20th century product, it’s not as graphic as the shit we get today. so while there is a fuckton on violence and gore and abuse, it’s mostly suggested rather than explicity performed the way it is these days. but it’s still edgy as fuck. very very very very good. damn! so good.

Good. The gratuitous violence and rape on, say, Game of Thrones, gets really old and really gross really fucking fast. Like, rape when the source material doesnít call for it? Rape when the scene is supposed to be a scene of good old *consensual* incest? Too much. Fuck that shit.

I prefer the subtleties. The Americans gets that kind of stuff pretty goddamn pitch-perfect. Still shows enough to let you know whatís happening, but doesnít seem to aspire to be smut.

Ahh, The Americans.

Atypical is very good. Netflix is putting out a lot of good stuff. Not As all around, but Glow was great, Stranger Things 2 was great, Mindhunter was great, Atypical was great... solid stuff.

Watched the first half of episode one of That “American Crime Story” show about O.J. Simpson made by the American Horror Story dudes.

Ross from friends is in it and ridiculous looking as Rob Kardashian. John Travolta is even more ridiculous looking and acting as Bob Shapiro. Not sure why it got so much praise. Looks like a goddamn cartoon. Maybe it’ll shape up.

Fucking weird watching this shit. I remember watching this shit unfold on television. White Bronco and whatnot. Very strange thing to dramatize, but I suppose it’s in keeping with the fascination we have with true crime. Fucking oddballs though.

Have any of you seen this? Compared it to your memories of the incident? Is it not weird AF?

Have not watched the OJ one yet, but did watch the Unabomber one and had very much the same feelings. Was very odd trying to pull from what little I remembered of it all, and trying to remember how much was actually reported on at the time. Hard to pinpoint, but something was "weird AF" about it. I imagine watching the OJ one will be quite the same.

Wait, was the Unabomber one also an “America Crime Story” thing? By the guys who do American Horror Story? If so I didn’t know it existed.

The O.J. one turned out to be very good, actually. Except for the fact that Cuba Gooding Jr. was playing a 6’8” 300lb man. Several references were made to his size in the show and he looked positively dainty next to John Travolta.

The Marcia Clarke portion of the story is particularly touching, as are the bits about Ito. It was such a circus when it happened that nobody viewed these people as, y’know, *people.* But at the time, Clarke and Ito in particular were both serious and respected legal minds, who found themselves surrounded by paparazzi and bullshit.

Really enlightening to watch. Ross from friends was not great as Rob Kardashian, but they did a good job with Cochran.

I don’t know. Even watching an attempt to tell a fuller story made me feel a bit ill. But if the AHS people also did a Unabomber show, I’m all in. This was good television at least. Uncanny, unsettling, but good.

I started that Unabomber thing, maybe about 20 minutes in I bailed due to bad acting & ham handed writing.

Just started Motherland, Anna Martin and Diane Morgan (P Cunk from Weekly Wipe). Pretty funny.

I don't think there was any production relationship between the two or anything, no. I just sort of lumped them together as modern dramatic series created about historic crimes, I guess.

Very true, I must say. It certainly is a "dramatization" in every sense of the word. I still enjoyed watching it though, mostly for the sense of how little I truly remembered about it via media at that time.

Started the new season of American Horror Story. The one about the greatest horror of all — the 2016 American president election. Good so far.

Started Flaked on Netflix. Stephen Malkmus does a lot of the soundtrack. Only watched one 30 minute episode, but... so far so good.

Tracey Breaks the News. This is pretty good, some excellent impressions of Angela Merkel, Teresa May, Judie Dench, Jeremy Corbyn

Apparently it’s out of the can. Er whatever.

I was confused too, but apparently it has indeed been cancelled... because Kevin Spacey made a pass at a 14-year-old 30 years ago. I don’t think Spacey forced anything, but I could be wrong.

I was SO ready to see Robin Wright become the “good guy” and ruin Francis, and bea badass bitch of a president. Oh well.
