its actually kinda boring.  I have it on in the background but it doesn't keep my attention 

When we started it, I thought I would be lucky to finish episode one. Then it takes off and I was shocked at how compelling it was. Who knew that redneck zookeeping was such a cutthroat industry!

i have episode 7 in the background.  the characters are wacky and it was interesting to hear about these characters but everything else has been boring to me.

Hmmm well I guess I understand. I don't care for any of the characters...they are all jacked up in some ways. I just thought it was crazy going from "here's this weirdo big cat guy" to all the craziness that ensued.

Ozark is just awesome, it’s quickly gaining on peaky blinders as my favorite show on netflix.

I watched Tiger King.  At first, I kind of judged myself for watching the Jerry Springer type personalities involved.  But I have to say, as an overall docuseries, I have never seen a show that has as much footage for events that went on over several years.  They seemed to have actual footage of so many extreme events, when a lot of documentaries just do a voice over with recreated events.  I really cringe at the behavior of the people, but the overall story was interesting to me.

 

As for Ozark, I thought season three was outstanding.  I hope there is not such a huge break before the next season.

I noticed that too. I don't know how far back they were filming, but it seemed like quite a long time. there was also footage which looked like cell phone footage, from times like when he the dude (cant recall who it was) and realized he no longer owned his tv show. a week before the fire. I finished the show last night and I really liked it. 

 

I wonder, when it comes to these pseudo documentary type shows, if we are getting the whole story. these shows are made to elicit an emotional response to keep you engaged. when making a murderer was on, there was outrage- some of it justified, no doubt, but much of it not. purposely leaving out exculpatory evidence makes it seem like there was this huge injustice. same with 'when they see us'. you will be convinced of someones guilt or innocence based on a completely manufactured, selective, one sided view of events. its essentially rage bait. 

 

when it came out that Michael Moore staged the scene in bowling for columbine where he comes out of the bank with the rifle, I felt like I was being manipulated and lied to (because I was). that drives me nuts. I don't mind being told a story, but i'd like to know all of the facts. in Moores case, hell, in steven averys case and the central park 5 case, there are legitimate discussions that can be had. but its counter productive to twist facts and obfuscate the truth.

I think I enjoyed the series more as a ridiculous argument between redneck zookeepers than some direct outcome of who was the worst of these nutbags. I enjoyed it in a very childish/immature way.

Pretty hooked on Zero Zero Zero on Amazon.  If you like Sicario, it's got a similar feel.

Might have to check that out I loved the first Sicario movie

I liked Zero Zero Zero but the dubbing was a little off putting.  Good enough story that I watched it anyway.  

 

That one's on Amazon, but I've noticed Netflix has come out with a whole bunch of foreign shows that are dubbed really badly (unwatchable for me) as of late.

Dave on FXX is pretty darn funny. Apparently, they can get away with a lot of stuff on the FXX. There are only 6 episodes out so far.

They could get away with a lot on the original FX. Just no titties/f-bombs. I remember seeing some eye opening stuff, like the Nip/Tuck threesome, and Patricia Velasquezes bare ass on Rescue Me

"Community" is a great watch on Netflix now (used to be just Hulu) if you need something light after watching crime dramas and Tiger zoos!

My limited understanding is that it's self censorship. Most non-premium cable channels self censor to avoid losing ad sponsors, viewers, and/or to avoid be added to platinum level tiers. The only true nudity prohibition is on broadcast tv channels and even that was relaxed almost 30 years ago with NYPD Blue.

Season 3 of The Sopranos is wild as ****. I wasn't a big fan of the first two seasons, but damn...now I can see why so many people like this show.

 

By the way, Jamie Lynn Sigler is smoking hot.

Looks like Geralt of Rivia got some stiff competition now.

 

*Also, hopefully this is the beginning of the end for The Walking Dead. Always felt that TLOU would've been better as a movie/show than a game

Finished Tiger King yesterday.  It was interesting but didn't live up to all the hype it's getting.  The criminal stuff was the most interesting part of it all to me.

Foreal with all the memes I had to watch it. I was entertained but also thought it was a bit overrated

A warning - Season 4 SUCKS BALLS. Don't even bother, just skip to 5.

The odd number seasons 1 3 5 are great; 2 is boring, 4 is putrid, and 6 (1/2 a season) spends wayyyyyy too much time on gay romance.
