BTW, Parker Posey, posing as Dr. Z. Smith is the best character in the series.

And... I can't get past the face-changing North Korean villain in a James Bond movie as John Robinson.

How did two freckle-faced gingers end up with children who were neither?

Several different people recommended it to me so I watched the whole first season over the past few days. Love it.
I put this on the TV yesterday and all I can say is, "How come nobody told me I should be watching Orange is the New Black?" Come on, guys!

:weirdtv:

It is amazing. I watched the first 11 episodes and stayed up way past my bedtime.

We were very late getting around to watching Orange is the New Black as well.

Our oldest kept saying it was really good and I'm not sure why we waited so long, but it's pretty great.

I recently watched Happy. It's kinda fucked up, Sou kept saying "this is really weird" :lol:

It's very strange, very violent at times and also pretty great. It stars Christopher Meloni (of Law and Order Special Victims Unit) as an ex-homicide detective who is seemingly unkillable* and Patton Oswalt as the voice of the tiny cartoon unicorn he sees :giggle:

*I don't think it's like a super power or anything, he's just amazing at not getting killed.

I watched I don't feel at home in this world anymore which is a Netflix original movie. It was pretty good.

The Sinner is now available (originally a USA series, apparently), and I watched the first 3.5-ish episodes last night. I can dig it. :thumbup:

Jessica Biel is relatable enough to me as a mostly okay woman who every once in a while gets an overwhelming urge to stab a guy. :stab:

Hell of a lot more interesting than Girl Interrupted, anyway. Look, Winona. If you want somebody to take your whiny ass seriously, you gotta step up.

I'm only a couple of episodes in and as much as I like it, it will probably take me a while to get through it. It's p intense and I have to pay attention (as opposed to just having something to look at for 45 minutes at a time).

Also. Nanette. It's funny where it needs to be and emotional and just very real. I don't watch a lot of comedian stuff on the netflix, but this was getting a lot of attention and I don't have a regret in watching it.

"The Last Laugh," about what it is, or is not, appropriate to joke about, using the Holocaust as the base case. For the parallel between 1933 and today, watch the segment beginning at 25:23.

I watched a noirish British crime show in which a murder in a small town unearths a dark secret from these childhood friends' past.

Oh, now, what was it called?

Was one of the friends a cop, and he was played by that guy from The Handmaid’s Tale, except suddenly he’s British? Cuz we started watching that one, too.

Also, Orange is the New Black season 6 dropped last night. :popcorn:

I dunno, but probably. Usually at least one of them is a cop, but I think the last few I saw, the cop friends were ladies.

I hope I didn't ruin it if that's what it is. Usually they put that in the description so I figured it would be OK to point that out. Like it's not so much a plot spoiler as it is just a really specific genre.

The dark secrets and the friends' roles in them vary.

"Video promos that play between episodes" sounds pretty obscure.

Netflix is testing video promos that play in between episodes - The Verge

Netflix has had ads forever. Those gigantic promo cards that take up 2/3 of the screen on the TV apps? Ads. Those autoplaying 'previews' when you scroll through? Ads. The constant relocating of your queue, so you have to scroll through rows and rows of suggested content before you can even find the stuff you want to watch? Ads. The fucking SLIDESHOW they run as a screensaver instead of backing out of the app after inactivity? Ads.

Netflix is lousy with ads and has been for a while.

Also, I think only a couple of weeks ago, explaining why they had all that autoplaying shit, some Netflix representative said that they were trying to recreate the way people used to watch TV, where you'd turn it on and stuff would just start playing instead of waiting for you to tell it to.

They are 100% trying to recreate the traditional TV experience, where you just fucking turn on your TV and watch whatever's on, use it as background noise, whatever. Ads are a part of that.

I loved, loved, loved Nannette.

Itís difficult to watch for a comedy show while also being hilarious and smart.
