Watched the first couple episodes of the The Boys from Amazon Prime.I really like it; very entertaining.The premise is pretty simple: corrupt super heroes.

Did anyone enjoy Stranger Things after first struggling to get into it? My brother constantly tries to get me to watch it. About a year ago I watched half of the first episode and stopped. Aliens just doesn't do it for me normally. He started harping on me again and so now I am through episode four. I find it tolerable, but I am certainly not hooked or even really excited. I'm hoping someone can tell me whether I should just abandon ship or keep going.

This ended up being great! Brock (and everyone), I think you'll dig it; the show subverts superhero tropes without being glib, and the finale actually packed an emotional punch, with some interesting and earned character dynamics.

With the political shutdown this got ignored, sorry.  

 

Stranger Things is great, especially if you have any affinity for 80s sci if: Goonies, ET, etc. The characters are rich, the writing and plotting are well founded, and the atmosphere is totally nailed.I love it.

Pretty much this. If you don’t enjoy this kind of fantastic adventure type of story that’s cool, too. I watch a lot of reruns of 60’s-90’s scifi.

Dark (netflix)

 

Interesting Scifi... curious if anyone else has watched it. It's German TV that they did a voice over with... I normally have trouble getting into those shows as the voice overs never catch the emotion... and well, you don't read lips but it's pretty obvious they arent' matching up.

 

Anyways, just curious if anyone else has watched it. Overall, it's pretty good.

Series. I understand that you can opt for subtitles over the dubbing somehow.I've also heard it highly recommended

It's a series. They have 2 seasons up on Netflix. It's about time travel, though set (initially) in 2019.

That would require being more of a tech geek... That's a big reason why I had kids... except instead of programming a VCR, it's programming Netflix.

I accidentally turn on subtitles sometimes. Usually takes a few minutes to remember how to turn them off....

I watched the first season of Dark -- last summer I think.I might have even posted about it on this thread.

 

I remember thinking the first episode or two were pretty creeopy, but was more annoyed by the time it ended.I haven't decided whether to watch season 2 or not.

 

Good to know about the subtitles, it might be more effective hearing the real voices -- some of the dubbing seemed abit off emotion-wise.

Has anyone else watched Sherman's Showcase on IFC? It hearkens back to Soul Train and In Living Color. I found the sendups pretty fun - as with good parody, there is genuine love for the originals behind the skewering going on.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the genre, but I have watched all three seasons. I thought season 1 was ok, season 2 did nothing for me, but i did like season 3.

I watch too much on Netflix and Amazon.

 

 

On Amazon, I just finished the four seasons of Monster Quest. I've also been watching Boston Legal for a while.

 

On Netflix, I just finished the new episodes (I think season 3) of The Good Place.
