I enjoyed The Kominsky Method but I think it might appeal more to mature gentlemen (of which I am one). Not sure how it translates to younger demographics.

Very much looking forward to season 3 of Atypical coming out tomorrow (11-1).

Season 6 of Bojack Horseman is out*. Just as fantastic as the other 5. This show goes lots of weird places in lots of different ways, and each season builds on the previous ones. And the theme music is just awesome.



*It's supposedly the last season, and consists of 16 episodes, but only 8 are released and now I'm suffering Bojack withdrawals.

Seeing Paul Reiser was kind of shocking. He looked so much older than I remembered him from Mad About You. Then it occurred to me that show started 27 years ago :oops:

I had to go to IMDb to see how old he is. Not much older than me, frankly.:oops:

How was season 2? My wife and I watched season one, but haven't gotten the desire to watch season two as it hits fairly close to home and is a bit too real for us right now with our oldest (12 yr old) son.

I enjoyed it throughly. I thought the spectrum portrayal in season one was slightly to highly exagerrated (especially in the pilot and EP 1), but it didn't feel that way to me in the second season. I don't know if it was purposefully toned down or whether I had come to enjoy the character and thus tolerate the eccentricities. YMMV.

Atypical on Netflix.
My wife and I jumped back in at the end of last week and got through Ep: 1 of season 3 last night.

This show is quite close to home for us as our 12 year old son is on the spectrum and in 6th grade/middle school now. This next 8+ years are going to be a trip for my wife and I. This show appears to be doing justice to the subject matter.

Also, our boys really wanted to start into The Good Place on Netflix, so they started Season 1 yesterday evening and are really enjoying the comedy and the philosophy lesson(s). The boys (10, 11, 12) are such forking nerds. I love it.

I started Treadstone last night. While not a streaming service show, I am mentioning it because others on here brought it to my attention.

I've also started Watchmen. I'm a little confused after only 1 episode, but I'm also intrigued by it. Some really good people on the show!

Anyone else watching Prodigal Son? I was a bit leery, given that it's a Fox show. But Michael Sheen is a main character, and I like him and a couple of other cast members. The chick playing the sister is out of her league, but she is the token pretty blonde in the ensemble.

I loved The Good Place - can't wait for the next season to drop

Just started I-sland on Netflix - not bad

finished Jack Ryan Season 2 and it was better than season 1 - hope they do a season 3

I forgot about Treadstone. I wanted to watch that one I'll have to check to see if I can watch the first couple of episodes on demand.

I've been watching Watchmen and have really enjoyed it so far. I can definitely see how it could be confusing though. I thankfully went back and re-read the graphic novel a couple of months ago and then I read a few articles on Slate and NYT (I think) right before the series started that sort of spelled out what was happening in the first few episodes without spoiling anything. I think it's a good thing I read those articles because the first episode made so much more sense knowing more about the background going in.

Here's one of the articles from Slate: https://slate.com/culture/2019/10/watchmen-hbo-racism-damon-lindelof-review.html

Anybody binge season 2 of Jack Ryan yet? Season 1 was surprisingly good but I haven't heard much about season 2 yet (it just came out). My wife and I are planning to start that soon.

Don't you have cable or over-the-air reception?

You can watch Season 4 right now as it airs. That's what I'm doing (and did with Season 2 & 3).

But I've rewatched many Season 1-3 episodes on Netflix as The Good Place is a good show for rewatching again and again.

I had the misfortune of paying to go see the movie. I absolutely hated it. It forever soured me on watching any thing Watchman related. FWIW, I never read the graphic novel either.

Another vote for Good Place. . . I'm going to miss it when it's over! Am watching Good Place and Walking Dead as the episodes are released.

I also agree that the first episode of the Watchmen was confusing, but I'm gonna give it a couple more episodes.

My parents recommended Emergence and we enjoyed the first episode of it.

My parents and 11-year old son both liked "The Unlisted," and I enjoyed it enough to watch with my son, so it's a potentially family-friendly show.

Not a show, but I watched "El Camino" and it was a solid capstone to the Breaking Bad series. I know that show was violent, but when you see all of the seasons compressed into a couple of minute long retrospective / reminder, it's pretty gross and disturbing! But I enjoyed the show anyway. :oops:

My wife has been watching The Good Place; I catch an occasional episode. Agree, it's a good show.

I never realized that Michael Schur (the guy who created The Good Place and Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Parks and Recreation) is also the same guy who played Mose on The Office.

He is a rather unassuming looking creative genius, for sure.

He looks like a bunch of guys I went to school with in northern MI.

I watched Unbelievable on Netflix. I had to stop after Episode 1, which I found ... deeply unsettling. I went back to it after a couple of weeks, re-watched Episode 1 and the remainder of the season. Not for the faint of heart, I'd say, but very well acted. Merrit Wever (Godless) is quite good.

I just want to say how it's a little frustrating watching shows like Kominsky Method on Netflix because they only make eight 25 minute long episodes per season and then you have to wait nearly a year for another measly 8 shows. Granted, I grew up in the days where you could only watch one show per week and had to go through several months without any new episodes of your favorite shows until the new season started, but at least you had 22-26 shows per season back then to watch as re-runs to keep you occupied and interested.

We caved and purchased the entire series of Alias on dvd (since it hasn't been on netflix in years) and started watching again this week. I watched it when it originally came out (2002ish) and introduced it to Mr. Random when we first met. Looking forward to watching it for the third time and introducing it to the teenagers this weekend. I love this show!

We got the complete Alias DVD set maybe 4-5 years ago. I think we're due to put it back into the viewing rotation soon. Interestingly, as soon as we finished watching serious spy-show Alias (with their mysterious Rambaldi artifacts, secret organizations, and double and triple agents) we then watched Chuck and got that series on DVD too. It was quite a contrast watching two spy shows back to back, one serious and the other comedic.

So I'll hold off on getting some Disney until the whole season is released then just get a month worth and binge the crap out of the show.
