Bojack Horseman. I know, I know. Everyone has said for years it's a great show but I never watched it because it's a cartoon of a horse and it shows exclusively on Netflix. I have nothing against either of them, but I made the mistake early of looking at fanboy stuff before I gave it a chance...and fanboys ruin everything.

But I gave it a shot a week or so ago, and it's amazing as you guys already know. I'm on the fourth season now and I'm amazed at how good and how deep it is.

Saw an ep of Smallville-because I'm about to sleep and love Superman and ...uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh, was Tom Welling auditioning for Super-MAN in this? Because he does not like a High School Freshman...AT ALL! Show looks all right for a Superboy story, but that's weird. I'm also going into this knowing I'll have a MAJOR problem with it in that it'll take him TEN stinking seasons to don the suit.
On the plus side, it's 10 seasons of Kristin Kreuk. :waves:

Well, the season finale of The Good Place was pretty good, except there's a huge plot hole (maybe)

In the pilot, Chidi said he was speaking French, yet in the second chance, Eleanor could understand him. Though, nothing says he can't also speak English since he worked at an Australian university, but then why no accent? Also it could also be because they're not actually alive again.

Let's just say its because their not alive , and ignore that Chidi could've been speaking... with a French accent this entire time. Still a good show, but still that's a big hole.

Apparently music rights is also holding up a digital/streaming release of Northern Exposure. *sigh*
That's so frustrating. I've been wanting to re-watch Northern Exposure, see if it's as good as I remember.[DOUBLEPOST=1517555705,1517555470][/DOUBLEPOST]
Look, I'm just saying I had a crush on Kristin Kreuk.
I was always more into Allison Mack. Too bad she went crazy.

Annette O'Toole wasn't hard on the eyes, either.

I re-watched northern exposure through the disc based Netflix. It is even better than I remembered. Seriously one of the best television shows ever made. I wish they would stream it so a new generation can see it.

Ash vs the Evil Dead

Okay I love the movies, and so far I am loving the show. They did a good job capturing what made the movies lovable and updated everything in the process. I didn't have Starz, but Netflix has it now. Great show. Right mix of funny, gory, just scary enough, plus a nice dash of Bruce Campbell.

Holy fucking shit, if you aren't watching Counterpart, you are missing out on the best TV show I've watched in years. I'm only 4 episodes in and each one is so packed with mesmerizing, fascinating writing and acting that I feel like I've sat through a full movie. JK Simmons better be getting an Emmy for this shit because how he's able to differentiate the two Howards just by how each one looks around a room alone is amazing. You're never unsure which Howard you're looking at.

Basic premise, 30 or so years ago there was a schism that created two separate realities and there's a doorway between both that is under the tight control of organizations on both sides. As time goes on the two realities are becoming more and more different.

The first season is done and it's only ten episodes. I'm savouring them.

Okay, I'm in just for the premise alone.

I have the whole first season sitting on my DVR waiting for me to have time to watch it. Will definately be checking it out

Cobra Kai looks good from the pilot...but is it good enough to justify a Youtube Red subscription? Like, maybe if they had more than ONE real show I'd consider it, but uh-uh.

I'm 3 episodes into The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and it's really charming. The writing is hilarious, the characters are quirky, and the retro style is so fun to look at. Definitely recommended.

I pay for a YouTube red subscription, but I never watch anything on YouTube red. I use it for Google music, which I use a lot, and for absolutely no ads on YouTube

One day, I watched the first few episodes and hated Santa Clarita Diet but apparently I didn't actually because hours later I'd finished the season.

Like I still feel like I didn't really like it but can't tell you why I was compelled to watch the entire season of a show I one afternoon that I was meh about.

I'm going to echo Dave; Cobra Kai is amazing. I came in expecting the 80's stuff, but I didn't expect an actually interesting story with lots of twists and turns. I really hope we get another season.
