I'm surprised any of the periodicals that started before the days of the internet are still around.

You guys were right. I got through episode 3 last night and while I still think the lead guy is horrible, the show has become infinitely more interesting.

The guy playing Kemper is utterly horrifying. His casual descriptions of murder and rape sent chills up my spine...been a long time since that’s happened from a show.

Just finished Mute. Read the reviews, so I went in with really low expectations. Wanted to see it anyway because I’m such a fan of Jones’ work on Moon. Not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. It’s not great - maybe not even good - but it’s certainly watchable. Not a disaster.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much Amish would you say there is in the film?

And to have an aversion to technology. Which earns him the nice sobriquet, "techtard."

Also, I did catch the Moon references and the press conference.

The only reason I wanted to watch this is because I was envisioning an Amish version of Blade Runner.

Wow. Mindhunter is great! I'm only 2 episodes in, but it's riveting. Never heard about it till I started reading through this thread. Thanks!

The breakable Kimmy Schmidt season 4:
Netflix’s hit comedy series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will return in May for Season 4. The streaming service said today the fourth season will launch in two parts. The first six episodes will be available on May 30, and the second half of the season will premiere later in 2018.

I loved season 1, but hated season 2. I couldn’t even make it all the way through. Did season 3 get better? Or was it still full of really crappy puns and cheap parodies of commercials and other stuff that a 12 year old would have been embarrassed by?

Sorry if these have already been mentioned.

Everything Sucks - a sweet high school coming of age story set in the early 90s.
End of the F***ing World - very entertaining and weird in a good way.
Altered Carbon - only 7 episodes but really good. Hopefully it pays off in the end.
Travelers - Two episodes in, but it's an interesting premise
One Day at a Time - I'm half way through the first season. The show premises are "meh", but the grandmother makes this worth the price of admission. She's fantastic.

Travelers renewed for a third season. Short of hearing that Sense8 is necroed, this was my biggest Netflix hope. Woo.

Occupied season 2 just got released on Netflix. Really enjoyed season 1.

Thinking season 4 of the bridge will be up soon as well.

I just finished up ENCOUNTERS WITH EVIL, which is another British true-crime documentary series ported over here. I'm a sucker for these.

Nothing spectacular, but still entertaining. Each episode follows a certain theme (killer doctors, killer couples, spree killers, etc.) While they cover plenty of well-known US killers, the ones I found most interesting were the UK ones that are less well-known in the States.

I haven't watched it yet, but I'm familiar with the story - now being told on Netflix via Wild Wild Country:
When the world’s most controversial guru builds a utopian city in the Oregon desert, a massive conflict with local ranchers ensues; producing the first bioterror attack in US history, the largest case of illegal wiretapping ever recorded, and the world’s biggest collection of Rolls-Royce automobiles.
I'm familiar with it because of the bio-terror attack element. The whole story is unreal and I hope this documentary does it justice as I don't think many are aware of what happened.

Just finished American Vandal and I was surprised to find a really compelling story with a cautionary tale about the potential dangers of these types of docs on innocent bystanders. I really enjoyed every moment of it.
And American Vandal just won a Peabody. I did not see that coming. However, it really is a fantastic show.

I'm two episodes in and right now I'm all-in on Team Cult. They're just a bunch of guys and gals who want non-heteronormative relationships, to do some crazy meditation, and to cry when an old Indian dude touches them. Ain't nothing wrong with that!

I'm 1 episode in and I have a feeling that any sympathy we might have for them is going to be stripped away with future revelations. The intro to the series seems to indicate a dark turn at some point.

So, this is somewhat surprising, but Rick Moranis is apparently coming back out of retirement. He'll be in a Martin Scorcese directed SCTV documentary special, exclusive to Netflix. SCTV was a beloved and wacky sketch show from the 70's through the 80''s, an offshoot from Second City's Toronto comedy troupe. And through this series, many comedy legends got their start, such as John Candy, Eugene Landy, Martin Short, Harold Ramis, Andrea Martin and Catherine O'Hara. Scorcese and SCTV in the same sentence? Crazy. Rick Moranis being back gives me tears of joy.

I finished watching Evil Genius. It's a crime documentary. Highly recommended if you like Forensic Files or First 48 type of shows. Without revealing the show content, I will say it is amazing of what people will think of doing and their thoughts behind it. Keeps you watching as it unfolds from the view of police.

Tip, watch to the end. One of the last statement of the case is one of those that makes you go wow.

I thought I read that Netflix was unlikely to pick it up, so most of the effort from the save-The-Expanse group is going towards Amazon.

For what reason? They'd be insane not to try. I imagine Amazon may have the upper hand since they already had the rights for prior season streaming, but who knows.

Guillermo del Toro creating a horror series for Netflix?

Yes, please.

I still love del Toro’s commentary on one of the Night Gallery dvd sets. He really is a fan boy.

Mowgli
In the biggest acquisition of a finished film it has made so far, Netflix has acquired from Warner Bros the worldwide rights to Mowgli, the CGI live action film directed by Andy Serkis based on the Jungle Book stories of Rudyard Kipling.
...
Warner Bros had Mowgli dated for an October 19 release. It will be recalibrated as an event offering next year by Netflix.

Serkis made Mowgli with 3D effects he hopes can be displayed in a theatrical component that will be part of Netflix’s release plans. But here, he will get an enormous global audience and see through his vision for a story that is darker and more dangerous than the one Jon Favreau directed for Disney.
