Tv shows/movies Watching



  • I'm currently rewatching Pushing Daisies which is arguably the best crime drama-romance-comedy-supernatural-camp show ever made. Never get tired of it. I've also been watching some old seasons of Amazing Race and Law & Order. In terms of current shows, I keep up with Major Crimes since I'm a Crime Drama buff.



  • Just finished the heartbreaking 3rd season of Bojack Horseman and barely starting the first season of Mr. Robot. Strong Fight Club vibes in the show so I'm bound to keep watching.


  • Banned

    I watched all of 'Stranger Things' yesterday and now I have a new actor crush.



  • I just watched suicide squad last night. HOLLY COW its good. The movie has the action and the laughs and the heart . I can't wait to See if they make a part two. As for tv shows I have been watching shows I was behind on.



  • Watching and really enjoying Stranger Things along with everyone else. Also I've really dug Jim Gaffigan's show on TV Land, basically a lot like Louis but with Gaffigan's fun point of view. If you guys dig Tabletop Escapades you might enjoy HarmonQuest, basically recorded then animated play sessions of Pathfinder with Dan Harmon (creator of Community and Rick and Morty) but it's only on SeeSo with is an NBC comedy streaming service ($3.99 a month so not too bad). Lastly I really enjoyed Ghostbusters, just a silly fun movie.



  • @TheMarcV I also really enjoyed Ghostbusters. I still greatly prefer the original, but I think that has a lot to do with my nostalgia for the series. Still thought it was a lot of fun and money well spent.



  • I don't really watch a lot of shows anymore since they tend to be far too dark/serious in tone and it has gotten tiresome. I'd like some adventure or at least some more light-hearted kind of show.
    The same is true for movies too I guess since I haven't watched a lot of movies this year. Last one I watched however was Star Trek Beyond and I really enjoyed that.



  • I just finished watching the Limitless TV show. They turned the concept of NZT into a nifty crime drama.. Doesn't hurt that one of the producers is named Sweeney haha.

    I have three other series that I'm following:
    Suits, a light-hearted serial drama about a law firm.

    One of the first things that happens is one of the hotshot hires a fraud with an eidetic memory. Literally perfect recall.

    America's got Talent. I usually tend to favor the non singers since they have more shows based on singing, but this year's are really good. But then again, so are the other acts.

    And Girl Meets World. To be honest, it's a pretty poor show lol. I watch it since Boy Meets World is of my favorite shows, and even it had a little bit of a meh start in hindsight.

    Last movie I saw was Hardcore Henry earlier this week. T'was.. Hardcore lol. Made me want to pick up Dying Light again because 1st person parkour.



  • @kirkking2000 Oh snap I totally forgot Limitless was getting a show. Need to check that out. I have a huge boner for the movie.



  • I binged the entire first season of Mr. Robot a few weeks back and now I'm hooked. Probably the only TV show I've ever seen that uses even remotely accurate terminology when it comes to computers. Also has an amazing soundtrack and is obviously influenced by some amazing movies like Fight Club and American Psycho.



  • I just started season 2 of Vikings. I almost wish E1S2 was the season finale for season 1. It's very emotional.



  • @Light Right there with you, I was giggling when they were talking about Steel Mountain as Iron Mountain does a pickup at my job everyday. Little things like that really set it apart.



  • I had forgot to say that I saw the new Star Trek movie it was pretty good. what's this new show everyone talks about ?



  • Saw The Virgin Suicides earlier today. It's weird and weightless. I don't think it ends up saying a whole lot, but I wouldn't call it empty either. There are smaller moments of inaction that Coppola captures really well (and would continue to capture with even less eventful films). Made me want to read the novel.

    Funny, I just watched Lost in Translation a couple of hours ago. Kinda liked it, but it's definitely not as great as I would have thought with all the hype attached. Also, am I the only person who thinks the Johannson/Murray relationship is hell-a-creepy? She plays early 20s (although she was even younger at the time of shooting) and Murray could almost be her grandfather. Really uncomfortable.



  • @babpel91 I felt the same when I saw it.. I guess it just didn't do it for me

    Recently watched Capote on HBO (fantastic), Charlie WIlson's War (also very good), and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy on Netflix (very good imo, tough to follow, need to watch again)



  • Watching some of the original Charlie's Angels, it's a guilty pleasure.



  • Stranger Things was probably the best thing I saw this year so far on tv.

    Watched Stranger Things over the weekend and bar a few early annoying character moments, I really enjoyed it.

    Only thing I'll say is I wish they didn't do some of the 'set up' things for another season. I hope they don't do another season and if they do, I hope it's a completely new situation and cast.



  • @tokeeffe9 Fully agree with you. Sadly, they've already announced a second season continuing the story :(
