Why didn't you like The Vow? I'm two episodes in and I mean essentially everybody interview I find incredibly unlikable. It's very frustrating watching arrogant assholes who think they know everything being interviewed but at the same time I find it fairly compelling. I may actually never finish it though tbh because it just wasn't compelling for me to force myself to keep watching.

I'm three episode into Lovecraft County. I dig it. There have been some pretty severe pacing issues though. Episode 2 felt very rushed and the wizard shit was a bit much. I found episode 3 better, I just haven't caught up.

Need to watch Raised By Wolves. Keep reading good things about it. I just didn't enjoy the trailer and it's put me off watching.

I've been watching a lot of Kath and Kim on Netflix which is pretty awesome.

My issue with The Vow is just that I fucking despise the interviewed people, and they're so full of themselves. That director who did the horrid documentary 18 years ago and just talks about this mealy mouthed noting that Keith spouts is SO GENIUS makes me want to jab a pen in my eye. It's just the least charismatic people possible to grab.

Anyways Raised By Wolves is maybe a top 3 show this year. I May Destroy You and Dark are the only clear ones I'd put ahead.

Did you finish Dark season 3? Worth it? I'm just having a really hard time about mid way through the season.

I May Destroy You episode 1 was brilliant but it may take some time before my gf is up for continuing. Good recommendation for all in any case.

I agree with you about The Vow. I think it's well made so far but after two episodes I kinda had enough of everyone involved. I'd like to finish at some point just because I'm a sucker for docs like it but it's frustrating.

I watched The Duchess because I'm enjoyed Katherine Ryan everytime I see here in UK stuff. The trailer was not good so I wasn't really looking forward to it. I found the first episode the worst of the bunch but I enjoyed it. A fun quick watch. The show did have issues for sure but it wasn't bad like I thought it would be.

I have not finished Dark season 3 yet. Iím stuck on like episode 6. It needs to end. Boring and repetitive.

The Vow should be so interesting, but I agree with everyone who commented already, the people are so unlikable

Agreed. It's a welcome change from some a lot of other half-hour comedies that have gone with a darker tone. It's a shame it's buried on Apple TV or whatever it's called.

Also I started season 3 of Dark last night and I’ll definitely finish it, but aside from this new cleft lip guy they’re kinda losing me.

Does anyone watch "Criminal: Insert Country" on Netflix. They're just standalone, three episode seasons that I find quite enjoyable. Each episode is a new interrogation scene varying from crimes like murder to purjury/fraud etc.
