    It's been in that "I need to see this at some point but I know it's gonna be trash" pile since it came out. I am immediately skeptical of anything that common has been cast in. :/

    Move it to the never going to watch pile. It seriously has no redeeming qualities.

    Yeah it's the absolute worst version of that type (John Wick, Bourne series, Bond, etc.) of movie imaginable. Just a terrible story that was executed even worse than terrible.

    really liked the manhunt in the Unabomber and digging this one too. Not top quality productions, but very compelling stories

    It's good. Grossly suspenseful in moments.
    And draining.

    I thought I posted about this. Fucking absolute gutter trash. It felt like shit was inexplicably cut out of some of the scenes. Every character tried to trump the other with their vices. Common randomly going from soft loving compassionate guy to gambling addicted loser to bloodthirsty gangster in one scene.

    The series Song Exploder: How Music Gets Made is awesome. I really hope Netflix chooses to fund more songs covered like this. Basically each episode is ~25 mins long and they focus on how exactly a popular song came to be. They interview the band members/writers and producers of the track. Definitely recommend.

    The host also did a rewatch podcast of West Wing with Josh Molina. If you’re a fan of WW, it’s a must listen. Pretty much everyone from the cast and crew make an appearance and give phenomenal insight

    I tried to get into West Wing but it didn't stick. Watched the first episode and maybe the 2nd iirc and it just didn't grab me.

    I’d say give it at least 10 to get to know everyone. It’s easily top 3 series all time for me

    I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about how the writers of Umbrella Academy are going to account for Elliot Page's change in gender between seasons 2 and 3.

    It’s not exactly West Wing or Mad Men. They live in a universe where time travel, teleportation & speaking to the dead are regular plot lines. Their father is an alien, moving from Ellen to Elliot shouldn’t be too big a leap.

    He's just going to play a female character. Apparently they aren't changing Vanya's gender.

    It was okay, but I was disappointed with the angle they took as far as focusing a lot of time on the cops and not spending much time on his background which was wild. Nobody watches a doc on a serial killer to hear about a cop’s family life.

    I'm enjoying two episodes in. I read an article that mentions they wish it would go beyond the backs “serial killers are evil” and that’s why they kill perspective.

    An example the article gave:
    Apparently at one point they intercut scenes of a car chase with a game of Pac-Man. Because 80s retro! I could see that being "tacky" in a doc about a POS like Ramirez
