Started watching History’s Secret of Skinwalker Ranch. And rationally I know it’ll turn into another series of “scientists” stumbling around in the darkness with Geiger counters that ultimately does nothing to resolve the mystery; but I want to believe, so I can’t help coming back to this type of show!

Raised by Wolves is so goddamn interesting. Anyone else checked it out yet?

I've been hesitant to because it's nowadays Ridley Scott, though it does look cool. It's good?

Do y'all actually, like, pay for all of these streaming and premium services? I get one or two maybe, I'm just bewildered whenever I see someone with more than that.

My girlfriend and I split a Netflix account and then we use one of her family members' Crave accounts, which is more than enough for us (we used to have Shudder as well but ditched it because we hardly ever used it, though it was only like $7 a month or something). Neither of us really watch a tremendous amount of TV. I'll usually get into one show every couple months and she just pretty much rewatches TNG and Deepspace 9 over and over on Netflix.

I pay for 5 of them, and my family leech of them all. I'm cool with it.

We pay for Netflix and use her sister's Hulu/Prime and a friend's Shudder.

Only ten minutes into Amazon's remake of the stellar Utopia, and I already want to throw my phone through the fucking TV. A disgrace on every level.

Sad to hear...Utopia was so unique.

Also yeah I just started watching Raised by Wolves. It moves a lot faster than I expected, I thought all the plot points of the first episode were going to be a season long. I'm actually happy about that cuz I wasn't looking forward to these plot points that much. I'm digging it.

I watched every episode of married with children on hulu. Man was Kelly hot. Great show too, very funny and comical. 4 touchdowns in one game.

I watched Stranger Things too...not bad. I would prefer the show end with season 3 though. I'm not too interested in a season 4.

GLOW. Subrick mentioned it in an unlikely thread, and I put the pilot on over dinner and nearly forgot to eat. the first 4:20 minutes are genius. and it stays strong. the key in the car scene and the bit afterwards are really strong screenwriting. the Strindberg bit was apt, and when my favourite Journey song kicked in like that... <3 I'm curious to see where it goes next... I'm not keen on wrestling, so I fear I may not be that into it for the length of three seasons, but right now I need to watch more!

thanks, Subrick :)

New Fargo season off to a strong start (as usual). Jessie Buckley is so great in it, makes me want to check out I'm Thinking of Ending Things just because she's in it.

That movie is packed full of people who were in previous Fargo seasons. I'm gonna be checking the new season out soon - probably this weekend.

Can't say I've been a huge fan of Lovecraft Country. When it focuses on Jim Crow South horrors it's good, so the first couple episodes make for solid TV, but when it descends into (frankly sub-par) CGI fests I'm not really impressed. On paper everything should be good, but the soapy melodrama coupled with the crappy After Effects spells makes me feel like I'm watching an episode of Charmed.

Kinda shocking considering the production studio and talent involved. Gave up after the fourth episode, anyone know if it gets better?

I watched the first two episodes of Lovecraft Country, but I haven't felt like continuing after the suuuuper silly conclusion of the second episode.

Spoiler: show
I was expecting something a bit more slow burn and sinister but instead I got a cutscene from a bad fantasy rpg.


I should watch the next one to see if it gets better, but if it's more of that shit I'm out lol. When it sticks to the horror-infused Jim Crow South stuff it's great.

If it's any consolation, the show is super divisive among wrestling fans. Not because of how it portrays GLOW or the business in general (GLOW was a shit promotion with a ton of untrained actresses who were abysmal and just wrought with silly gimmicks), but because of how the "female empowerment" angle flies in contrast to what GLOW was actually like.

GLOW is good shit. I'm a bit biased as a big Alison Brie fan but it's a really entertaining character dramedy. Although season 3 is a little wonky at times (some of the character writing gets a tad repetitive) it still kept me invested. Apparently it's set for a fourth and final season whenever filming can return in a normal capacity so we'll see if that holds up more to the quality of the first two seasons.

Hell yeah! This series is so good I've been thinking about beginning to watch wrestling with some of my friends. It's absolutely incredibly, and the way it portrays wrestling both on and off stage is super interesting. I can't wait for a new season tbh.

Started watching Cobra Kai a couple of days ago, mainly based on good reviews on IMDb. First season was really fun, I liked the approach they took with both Daniel and Johnny; no heroes, no villains, just people with flaws trying their best (fights were also really cool). Then I got to season 2 and everything went downhill, this show makes no sense anymore.

My girlfriend got me to give Netflix's Love a try. It's a Judd Apatow production starring Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs. The show works very well if you consider it as Britta's post-Greendale life and I hope Joel McHale makes an appearance in later seasons.

My girlfriend and I just finished watching Cobra Kai. We both really enjoyed the 80s vibe. Can anyone recommend any series from the 80s worth checking out? btw we've both seen Stranger Things.

The Haunting of Bly Manor is happening in the next few days. I'm fucking hyped as fuck for it.

What do/did you think? I'm only doing an episode a day but it's pretty good so far.

I watched the first three in a row last night. Really digging it. Not sure where it's going as I am unfamiliar with the source material, but there's a lot of little threads being sown that I'm curious to see where they go. Victoria Pedretti as the lead is killer... she's a real talent. Can't wait to see her do more.

I was never able to get much into Hill House. I feel like I enjoyed it well enough while I was watching it, but by the end I really couldn't say I loved it (didn't help that the ending was completely bad). I dunno, clearly I'm in the minority since I know it's pretty beloved, just never really clicked much with the characters/story, plus other than that bent neck girl episode (that one was great) the scares seemed pretty thin.

Also, while it didn't really bother me that it had nothing to do with Jackson's book, it definitely confused me. Why didn't they just call it something else?

I've been watching Bly Manor, I like it. I agree about Victoria Pedretti. She really does the lead role well. I was kind of surprised to learn that she is only 25. Looking forward to her playing more roles. I believe she is a great actress, from what I have seen of her in Hill House and Bly Manor. Looking forward to her in more roles.

Really enjoyed Bly Manor... I think this one will be even more divisive than Hill House though; it's super slow and abstract in places. Really quite strange and does its own thing. The final episode I thought was beautiful. Probably gonna see it again before Halloween to see if I notice anything new.

Pedretti was also in 'You' this year and was really something else in that. I didn't know she was only 25. Shit.

Fargo is interesting for sure too. Can't wait to see what all this is building up to, and Jessie Buckley's character and acting are a huge standout so far. Chris Rock is badass as well.

New Discovery is interesting. It's still way too Abrams Trek-y overall, but at least they seem to be leaving the prequelitis behind.

Hmh I'm gonna check this out. I've read review snippets telling me how it's "barely horror and boring". Which probably means it isn't a jump scare filled haunted house ride, but actually something interesting.

I wouldn't say it scared me, but over 90 percent of horror doesn't scare me in an immediate way and you just gotta judge stuff for what it is. It's masterfully done.
