Spoilers, the episode is a year old at this point. How spectacular was this cliffhanger? I got goosebumps the first few times I saw it.

Can I count on Adam Brody to play the same character in Startup as Kid Detective?

The writing for that show is fucking incredible. It lead me to be super annoyed with Lalo, to thinking heís hilarious then to feeling symptaghy for him.

Also, the scene in which the cab driver confronts Jimmy is so well done, itís insanely simple but the directing made it so uncomfortable for the viewer.

I feel like a huge asshole for not being all in on Detroiters when it aired. It's so fucking funny. Anybody who likes I think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson needs to watch but in general I would highly recommend. I'm about midway done season 2 and sad I'll be finished soon with no more episodes to come.

New season of Dark Side of the Ring again captures my attention. The Brian Pillman episode wasn't amazing or anything but I still dug it, captured my attention. Some really good episodes from the sounds of it are coming up.

Season 2 of Love, Death + Robots was pretty meh, a couple good episodes but nothing special. CG Michael B Jordan looked very real but the story wasn't great

I finished watching S2 of The Wire and I guess I can see why people hate it. I didn’t think it was awful but that was a pretty unsatisfying finale.

It's not bad at all and it ties the show together, The Wire is about Baltimore not a single gang or detective unit

Am I the only one watching Mare of Easttown?? Cause god damn this show is good. Two episodes left and tonight’s was a banger. Really good HBO murder mystery mini-series. Those shows always have a high floor, but so far this one is really delivering and exceeding all my expectations

Hacks is good. Mare sounds like Broadchurch.

Late to the party but I watched the 1st episode of Mare of Easttown and I'm fully on board. Love Kate Winslet and I think the first episode does a really good job laying the groundwork for the rest of the season. Despite it being a bit tropy I did find the first episode very authentic, it felt like real ass problems. Look forward to catching up.

I finished Detroiters and am sad. I'm part of the goddamn problem. It took me this long to actually sit down and watch it all and fuck did I even miss out. What a show, I'll miss it.

I like Love, Death, and Robots. I do think the fact that there were twice as many episodes in season 1 really helped it. Season 2 felt too short but my god the animation was beautiful. It must have took a huge amount of time just to make the episodes they did. I don't think this season quite has the highs that season 1 had. Still enjoyable but ultimately I think forgettable.

Detroiters was mentioned here forever ago and got me into it. Richardson and Robinson have such great weird energy that work well together. I wanna rewatch it

I've been watching it too. It's one of the better shows on TV at the moment for sure.

I feel like this is the case with a lot of shows these days, though. It seems like the 8 episode format is pretty much the norm for anything digital-only these days. Just seems like it's barely enough to get into the series or develop characters with that few episodes.

Here's 8 great episodes...now you need to wait another year for more.

On the plus side, it's probably led to a lot more series that would have otherwise never seen the light of day and more notable actors getting involved in them because it's not nearly as big a comittiment as a 20 episode a year series.

Watched episode 2 last night and could not agree more. Really enjoying it.

I thought we'd landed in a good spot with 12/13 episodes becoming the norm but tbh I won't be surprised if 6 becomes the norm before too long.

I hope not. Falcon and the Winter Soldier being 6 episodes was SUPER unsatisfying. Really killed what I think could have been a good series with a few more episodes.

Still wish they wouldn't have removed all the pandemic stuff, but then the show probably gets trounced with anti-mask people and the real Captain America message gets lost

Surprised I didn't hear a lot about Disney being too preachy or anything anyways

Feels like Broadchurch after 2 episodes. It's a good formula.
