Here it is, in short. I would need to cross check some things to make sure it is all correct, but this is the story in brief: Some time in March, 1944, the 45th was moving into Germany in near co

The Last Kingdom season 4 gets released on April 24.

Nice I’m working on my Spanish, and Netflix beats the hell of Rosetta Stone. 

i've been using duolingo for 85 days now and it is easily worth the price- something like $90 for a year or something. i'm legit starting to dream in spanish, lol. definitely check it out.

Other than Narcos, and solid Spanish shows? 

Frontera Verde, La Reina del Sur. I'm a sucker for anything Escobar, esp liked Surviving Escobar. El Chapo series too.

i care a lot. liked it. did not love it. 

Intense first half and I thought maybe it was going to be a different kind of flick. but the second half was too contrived for me.

I learned Italian on Duolingo for free. Why you paying?

Holy fuck, who at Netflix greenlighted The Crew and how did it not end up on Fox?

Fat guy who works for NASCAR.  It's a Fox-demo show. 

I thought it was a FOX show watching the promo until they said Netflix.

"Okay, I like what you did with The Ranch, but is it possible that you can make something even dumber? Like preposterously, mind-numbingly stupid to really target that demographic?"

"Well, you should ask, I was having a conversation with Kevin James the other day..."

"Say no more. You're greenlit. Here's a mountain of cash."

 

I thought NASCAR fans were still protesting the sport after they decided that maybe Confederate flags and the N word are things that they should steer clear of moving forward?

I watched it all - it was my "half pay attention while eating breakfast" show

  • Fat guy who can't stop reliving his former glory as a driver - check
  • Mousy "fugly" chick everyone makes fun of that fat guy is secretly in love with - check
  • Token minority actors for comedy value - check x2
  • Bitchy hardass chick that doesn't understand the world of racing - check
  • Hot and fucking dumb as a rock driver who, of course, falls for the bitchy hardass chick when she shows real feelings - check
  • Stereotyping NASCAR fans as stupid and uncultured - check
  • Every team owner struts around like they are trying out for a part in the Dukes of Hazzard - check

Hit all the boxes.

The MBA drinking game and submitting resumes to keep your job hit a little close to home and made me chuckle. 
 

Drinking game was the highlight of the show for me.

All I know is Kevin James should be sending fat checks to:

  • Ray Romano - guest appearances on Everybody Loves Raymond led to King of Queens
  • Leah Remini and Jerry Stiller's family, since he clearly can't recreate the King of Queens magic without them (Kevin Can Wait and The Crew were godawful) 
  • Adam Sandler, for keeping him paid for a bunch of movies via Happy Madison (50 First Dates, Chuck and Larry, Paul Blart/Paul Blart 2, Grown Ups/Grown Ups 2, Here Comes the Boom, Pixels, Sandy Wexler, Hubie Halloween, Zookeeper)

I am enjoying Criminal: United Kingdom.  It's just interrogations of suspects/persons of interest.  Detectives also talk strategy outside the room.  My wife likes it a lot as she likes detective shows, but hates those with a lot of violence.

I love that show. Netflix also has “Criminal : Germany”, “Criminal : Spain” and “Criminal : France” that are also very good. Exact same setup and premise but in the different countries with different detectives. They even use the same set, if I remember correctly.

I Care A Lot was just okay.  The second half missed the mark.  I was hoping for more "Law Abiding Citizen" revenge carnage and it went a different direction.

I watched it. Solid 6 I’d say.


That about sums it up for me.  It did not meet my expectations.

Lol at I Care a Lot. Walking Dead level writing. My gut told me to turn it off at the car/lake scene. I should have listened. What a terrible movie. Worst antihero ever put on a screen. Someone should have told the writers that antiheroes need redeeming qualities and depth.

Also worst mafia ever.

I love Dinklage but at no point was he convincing as a scary mobster.

I paid a lot of money for Rosetta Stone to speak Spanish, but after I paid I still couldn't speak Spanish. So I called them up and asked them why and they said I had to take a bunch of steps before I could do it. So then I signed up for the Babble app and now I am good.

Yeah I think they tried to make it more dark comedy instead making a straight thriller, but they made the main character so unlikeable I was craving more carnage.

Ha. I watched the first part and stopped after the lake scene. I’m sure I’ll finish it but you can see the direction it’s going and it’s not good.

Really enjoyed the Pele documentary.  Always heard him referred to as the GOAT, but never knew any of his history.

He was Magic Johnson before Magic Johnson was Magic Johnson.  Thank for the rec.  I'm going to check it out.

Watched I Care a Lot...

Holy crap that was terrible. Told my wife I’ve never rooted for the Russian Mafia before and also been so poorly disappointed in their ability to kill someone.

Basically up to the lake seen it was tolerable but after that even my wife was saying this cunt better die.

Girlboss!!! Meets a shitty version of layer cake

Put me in the camp of WTF for 'I Care A Lot'.  As others stated, it was a decent ride until the lake scene.  You've spent the entire movie portraying this woman and her girlfriend as ruthless people praying on elderly people. Now, you want the audience to sympathize\empathize with the same women after they escaped what they truly deserved? Nope.

Was I the only one who had to IMDB Alicia Witt?  I was like, the voice is quite familiar but I can't quite place that face....

They went from scam artists to stealth ninjas taking out the Russian Mob. Totally absurd.

I like foreign detective series. I'm finishing up a Finnish series called Deadwind. Pretty good. Shetland which takes place in Scotland is really good with beautiful scenery (actually that may be Amazon). Broadchurch and Hinterland are likewise excellent.

My unofficial/anecdotal evidence among other husbands I know is that Bridgerton is definitely firing some wimmen up.


Because of this response and others like it I decided to get talk my gf into watching Bridgerton. She doesn't really need any help getting herself going but I thought "meh ... there will be lots of naked titties and surely it can't hurt."    We're 2 episodes in. She loves it and I want to stab my eyeballs out.  Fuck you very much.

Is anyone else getting tired of trying to start a new series only to find out the character voices are dubbed over,? 
Turn them off and go to native language with English CC. Netflix should make that the default, dubbing sucks.
