    What side? This is an honest question. How are S1 of Iron Fist, S2 of Jessica Jones, S1 and S2 of Luke Cage, and The Defenders better than the best the MCU has shown?

    I don’t think he’s saying that. He’s saying that the best of the rest does a better job of telling an engaging story while still being entertaining than what the MCU has to offer. No one is gonna compare the worse to the worse, it’s about comparing the best to the best

    So you think the “best of the best” in the Netflix shows is better than the “best of the best” in the MCU?

    Absolutely. For me anyway. It’s more engaging and enjoyable. I REALLY like GOTG and Thor Ragnarok but that’s all based on a comedic front, I don’t enjoy the rest because so much of it feels lazy. Blow shit up and prey on emotions. Some people need more than that. Some folk don’t. I’m not mad at either

    Daredevil. I actually love season one of Luke Cage. JJ season one was enjoyable. Punisher season one as well. Regardless, I think they cater to different types of folk. You and I have had this argument before and I assure you, it won’t change. Some folk just look at shit different

    Endgame is going to be the highest grossing movie of all time either this weekend or the next. So of course the cool thing to do is to hate on the most popular movie series on the planet.

    Or acting like the most popular thing can't also be a piece of shit.

    The vast majority of people are really dumb. It makes more sense that the most popular things would be low quality.

    If you like cooking shows, highly recommend Chef:the show. I watched all 10 episodes last night. Jon Favreau and Roy Choi (the guy the movie was loosely based on/made sure the movie was realistic) cooking with celebrities/chefs.

    The interactions and conservations are just so real, plus the food looks great

    Not sure if its been talked about itt but the show Bad Blood is awesome. I watched the first season a couple of months ago and it is good shit. They just released the 2nd season a week or so ago. I'm a couple episodes in and so far it is even better than the first.

    If you like shows about mafia, cartels, drug trade, cops, etc... then you'll love it.

    MCU movies are funny and entertaining. Pretty awesome that someone talking shit about them used Ant Man movies as ammo considering a high % of MCU fans haven’t seen them either. And Rocket is one of the more entertaining characters in any superhero movies. Never knew there were superhero snobs that judged them based on their species. He’s a rabbit anyways

    About to start Dark bc of the opinions in here.

    I'm on a rewatch of Dark right now, and it's just as good on a 2nd viewing as the first. Really might end up being one of my favorite seasons of TV, possibly #1.

    So Dark is a good show?

    I need a show to watch, any other Netflix shows worth checking out?

    Watched the 1st episode of Good Omens on Prime and thought it was solid.

    I never watched Shameless and they have 8 seasons of it on Netflix. I’m on season 6 and it’s pretty good. Dark is awesome and starting a rewatch now before the new season starts.

    old Shameless is so good that it makes new Shameless a little more tolerable because you are already invested in the characters

    I watched all of Good Omens. Great start and very solid cast. Thought it faded a bit at the end, but a worthwhile watch.

    Good Omens is pretty good. David Tennant and Michael Sheen completely overshadow the rest of the cast, but I expected that going in.

    As others have said, Dark is fantastic. It may be my favorite show on Netflix.

    Ozark, OA, Last Kingdom, Mindhunters are all worth watching.

    Edit: Bodyguard could probably be on the list as well. Peaky Blinders.
