I've been watching a lot of stuff on Netflix lately:

- Swiss Army Man, was much, MUCH better than I anticipated. Don't let "Daniel Radcliff plays a farting corpse" prevent you from watching it. It was actually really good and not nearly as stupid or immature as I was anticipating.
- Sausage Party: another one I really wasn't thinking I'd like. I thought it was going to be another stupid comedy, but it was actually pretty smart and really fun to watch
- Wind River was amazing. I absolutely loved it; poignant and timely murder mystery with a great cast, great acting and a really amazing setting
- Safe was a pretty interesting mystery, nothing groundbreaking, but I liked it. Honestly, there were probably too many twists in this one, but it keeps you guessing and I really liked the cast.
- I watched the Staircase with the girlfriend. Essentially, a well-known(?) author finds his wife dead at the bottom of a staircase and is subsequently charged with her murder. It was very similar to Making a Murderer; equally interesting and infuriating.
- Also, anyone watching Final Space? It's...alright. Kind of feels like an attempt to cash in on the recent surge of sci-fi and adult animation, but it's enjoyable, I think...

Dude read up on the Wikipedia article on that author from staircase. There's totally an owl conspiracy theory .. It's nuts.

Yeah, I watched a few episodes mostly because Fred Armisen does one of the voices and while it's not terrible it's trying far too hard to be a bit Rick and Morty-esque (not in terms of settings or characters but more in terms of being "kinda weird but likable"). I'm probably not going to watch more as I really don't have much free time and to be fair one of the main appeals was that it's short episodes and thus easier for me to find time for :).

Ah yes - the White Samurai Savior trope visits the northwestern high plains.

That was nuts and fairly convincing. I'm pretty sure I remember them talking about owls a couple times throughout the show.

Fair enough, it definitely falls into the White Saviour trope. There is no denying that. I still enjoyed it though and it wasn't as bad as Tom Cruise in samurai armour. I did not catch the Weinstein irony.

The show's been in development since 2010, so I don't think I'd describe it as a cash-in.

Dark Tourist is kind of a poor man's Louis Theroux but that's still better than 90% of the reality/travel shows on Netflix.

Just finished the first season of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency in one night and now I'm mad that they fucking canceled it after just 2 seasons because it's the greatest.

has anyone watched Final Space on netflix? It's majorly ok, but my god it's a complete ripoff of Space Dandy!! I mean, maybe they bought the rights to Dandy so they *could* rip it off (like Aronofsky did with Perfect Blue) but... it's weird!

Just finished watching that last week. I really enjoyed it. He goes to some pretty crazy places. I need to check out some Louis Theroux now though.

yah. word on the street is they're still trying to shop it around and get it picked up again but no luck. UNOFFICIAL word on the streets is that it got dropped so BBC didn't have to take a side on series creator/i think head writer being #MeToo'd.

suckkkkkkkkks. that's my favorite thing in forever, and just got WAY better in season 2.

and season 1 was AWESOME.

i'm a bit afraid too, because i read the first one when it came out decades and decades ago and.... i don't remember much of it, but what i do was NOTHING like the series.

The books are absolutely nothing like the series. They're still good if you like Douglas Adams (which I do) but don't go into it thinking it'll be the same.

Yeah I was gutted when it got cancelled, it's been the show I've loved the most in a while.
