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.

I never knew the levels of depravity that this guy sunk to, true evil incarnate...

That one little girl was such a badass as were the cops involved...

Got around to watching this tonight. Found it interesting that he was able to stump the LAPD for several months but the SFPD figured out who he was quickly.

Hard to be a serial killer nowadays with all the crime investigation technology and surveillance we have now. Definitely can’t remember any known active ones, there probably are some around but we may not know about until after the fact. 

Yeah, it's not like 35 years ago where a bunch of kids could kill a junior high bully and a few of the other popular types, including that bitch that thought she was better than everybody else because "her house didn't have wheels on it", and make it look like they stole a car and ran off somewhere, when in reality they were all locked in the big-ass trunk of a '78 Ford Ltd, and sunk to the bottom of a flooded and abandoned coal pit three counties over.

These days, cops would have pulled cell phone data of anybody who would have a motive, and that case would be wrapped up pretty fucking quick.

I wish someone would do a quality doc series like Night Stalker but about the Candy Man from Houston. Fucking sick bastard.

It still surprises me that the Candy Man does not have more of a mainstream awareness than he does.  28 dead in 3 years.  My only guess is that A) people didn't know a serial killer was operating until he was killed and B) It was the early 70s and a lot more shit was going on in the news (and it may not have been a story the media wanted to cover back then).

Yeah, it’s crazy. I think he is still the most prolific serial killer in Texas history. Maybe I am wrong. Tortured, raped and murdered at least 28. Fucking insane evil.

Yeah I think Eugene Watts(the Sunday morning slasher) had more than Dean Corll (the candy man), think he had like 44 linked murders to his 100 estimate by his own words and to the 28-29 that the candy man had.

I think Mindhunters had an episode where the FBI agents interviewed Elmer Wayne Henley, who was the candy mans teenage accomplice and eventually shot Corll.

I finally watched The Social Dilemna.

If you haven't watched it you need to.  When you read the Cloak Room and some of the topics in Daily Texan (riot threads) you'll realize just how much people are being influenced and polarized against each other with social media at the center of the problem.  It was a powerful show.

Giri/Haji is pretty good. It is very well done and very fresh for the genre. Starts a little slowly but really ramps up.

Am I the only one watching Giri/Haji (Duty/Shame) or did I miss the conversation on it? Wife and I are digging it.

One episode in on Giri/Haji and it’s solid. A Tokyo detective goes to London to investigate if his assumed dead yakuza brother is responsible for a murder.

 

I just finished Giri/Haji, and am really surprised that it hasn't received more buzz.  It is a very unique take on the crime/mafia drama genre, and is extremely well done with top-notch performances from almost the entire cast (I struggled a bit to find Justin Long convincing).  If you are in need of a solid 8-episode binge, look no further.

One of my favorite shows ever...sad to see it go but it’s time

I'm not sure if it was the Variety article I read or a different one, but the producer said that Peaky Blinders will continue in a different form. I gather that means a spin off, which is great news imo.

That's cool... plenty of characters to spin off either before/during/after. Love me some Peaky F'in Blinders

I've been trying to get everybody I know to watch it, particularly those who spend way too long on Facebook.

I've also been pushing it to the people I know who are into qanon, since it's literally the reason their cult grew to the size it did.

For all of the relatives/family members who bitch about how the tech industry is trying to control us, some of them are pretty fucking hesitant to watch it and hear from the actual people who were behind the scenes and literally trying to control or change their behaviors.

I've got one older (70s) family friend who would post things on FB at all hours of the day.   She asked why she should watch it.  I told her that it would show her why she's constantly posting political and religious stuff for what seems like most of the day.  I have no idea  if she watched it, but my sister has noticed she has cut way back on her FB activities, and seems to be sticking more to the "grandma posting stuff about the grandkids" thing, as of late.

edit: The ones who push back the most on watching it seem to be the ones who actually are aware of how easily they are getting sucked into social media, and either they don't care, or they need help (intervention?).

Social Dilemma should be required viewing in high school, not that it would help much.

I will always defer to the expertise of a trucker when it comes to serial killing.

Thought Night Stalker was really good - excellent production.

But I saw a massive opportunity lost, as far as Ramirez' background is concerned. They hinted at it here and there but never shed light on the guy's origin which, from what I understand, was horrific and exceedingly important to the story and events. Then again, does one want to be entertained or depressed?

Maybe the producers made the right call, who knows...

Derry Girls is funny as hell. Really digging it. They build towards arching punchlines brilliantly 

Oh you're a Derry Girl now Navy. It's fantastic.  Highly recommend it. Plus it holds up on rewatch

Lupin is pretty enjoyable if you suspend a bit of logic. French 5-episode show about a diamond thief trying to solve a mystery on why his father was framed for a crime 25 years earlier.

I didn't need it ending on a cliffhanger though. Supposedly, Part 2 comes out later this year.

BInged Sweet Home. Gave me a Stranger Things vibe but more of a grown up Korean version. Enjoyed it and def in for S2. 

 

Enjoying this series currently.  I'm 3 episodes in.  Not reminding me of Stranger Things yet, but I could maybe see it in some of the quirky music choices at times.  This was the series I chose after "Alice in Borderland" season 1 which I really enjoyed.

Well, I got talked into watching "The Witcher," but after 3 episodes I kind of gave up on that one.

Wasn't there a male nurse not that long ago that offed a bunch of folks?  Not as 'gruesome' per se, but I would think he qualified....Edit: NM, that's my old age f-ing w/me.  Due I was thinking of committed his last murder in 2003.

I enjoyed Lupin very much. 2 or 3 days to binge all the episodes. I was surprised it ended on a cliffhanger but I've already forgotten what the cliffhanger was about since I've slept since watching it. Great show.

Watching Spycraft today. Documentary series about the art of spying, including examples. Tech, clandestine Ops, strategies. A little dry but an interesting peek into that world. 
 

for the Derry girls fans, one of the holiday episodes of British baking show is 4 cast members. They can’t bake well at all and are a riot together, mirroring their characters pretty well.

Director said they intentionally didn’t spend much time talking about Ramirez himself, given how big of a fan base he had and how glorified he was already. But at the same time, that’s what people find most interesting.

My wife started watching Imposters the other night. Man, does it suck. 

My wife has us through 9 episodes and the show was cancelled after 20 so we’ll stick it out. It is not believable at all but the lead actress is easy on the eyes.

^^^ That’s true and it felt a lot like a CoD campaign, but still an enjoyable film that was very well shot.

My cousin produced, so I saw the script maybe 3-4 years ago when they were looking to attach talent and it changed a good amount. Was originally supposed to be shot/take place in Africa, so my guess is they moved to a more expensive shoot when the Netflix cash came in.

One would think it’s hard but I recall seeing an article a few months back saying there are a few thousand active serial killers. Not sure how that’s estimated but the number really surprised me.

I think they base the numbers off of the unofficial subreddit for serial killers, but there's a bunch of fucking posers in there, who think that killing a couple of people makes them a serial killer.  The place has gone downhill the past few years.  Mods need to be stricter with who gets in.

I’m on episode five and I love it.

But it’s a Shonda period piece so I’m far from an unbiased reviewer.

This kind of stuff is my wheelhouse.

I was making fun of Mrs. CHIEF for watching this shit Saturday, nothing but a damn soap opera set in the 19th century. Shallow as shit. I was smoking some ribs, and every time I would come back in there was always some fucking going on. I just kept egging her on about how fucking stupid it was, and how I thought she was smarter than that. Come Saturday night, though, she stripped naked in the dark and crawled all over me. Needless to say, yesterday, I already had her computer hooked to the TV and ready to go for her. It worked for last night as well. Just thought I would give all the guys around here that PSA.

Speaking of serial killers I always thought a good premise for a movie would be about a disgruntled tech support phone agent who tracks down every customer that was rude to him. He starts by Strangling them with a phone cord, and becomes more creative as the bodies start to stack up. He never gets caught.
