    My Uncle was a paratrooper in WWII, he didn't say much about it, like he couldn't stand to have his feet be cold because of Bastogne, really freaked him out. One of the other things he mentioned is that after finding one of the camps, the rank and file were so incensed by what they saw, they just shot anyone in an SS uniform on sight, no exceptions, no prisoners. I would image many of those 7000 camp stooges are buried in shallow graves, if they were buried at all. About the only other comment he made was that he always hated Krauts/NAZI's for making him have to do the things he had to do, but they needed doing. True greatest generation shit.

    I hope it's not a dupe, but: The Red Sea Diving Resort.

    Based on the true store of the rescue of thousands of Ethiopian Jews through Sudan to Israel.

    Do watch. It's excellent.

    I'm not sure if its on Netflix, but his videos are normally there... the latest Jim Gaffigan video is up on Amazon Prime. It is funny, and I officially certify his show to be free of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    They added some new decent movies to Netflix recently. Just noticed The Book of Eli, which was actually pretty good.

    DO NOT watch Another Life with Katie Sackoff. She is good in it but the story and dialog is asinine.

    Finished season 2 of Mindhunters. Very good.

    Now watching season 2 of The Confession Tapes. The corruption and ineptitude of the police is just shocking.

    I wasn't a fan. It seemed like "Argo on the Ocean." I wasn't invested in any of the characters half-way in so I stopped watching. It's a great story. I just didn't need it told by Captain America.

    I'm about 4 episodes in on MH. I was worried that I was TRYING to like the show last year. I've seen a ton of series since it was last on. And most of them I'm looking at my watch wondering when s-word was gonna happen. Not so with Mindhunter. Very well done and every scene is vitally important and interesting.

    Interesting the take on people they can't possibly catch during the series. BTK. Atlanta kid killer. It's not your typical "gotta catch em before Episode 8!" type crime show. And I love Bill. He was the "His name was Robert Paulson" guy in Fight Club.

    Not Netflix, but City on a Hill on Showtime was very good. Loosely based on the FBI and crime and corruption in Boston in the early 90's. Kevin Bacon does a nice job as the twisted lead FBI character. Just heard they renewed for a second season.

    And you get to fast forward through or ignore all of the Skyler scenes for an added bonus.

    I don’t know if you’re through it yet but you won’t be disappointed with how it ends.

    QB1 Beyond the Lights - Great documentary on the life of star QB1's from across the country as they make it through their Senior year and who they commit to come college time.

    Peaky Blinders - My wife got me into this mainly because she couldn't understand a damn thing they said, but after watching the first two seasons I'm hooked.

    Red Sea Diving Resort - interesting story. not sure it needed to be movie drama. I stopped about 1/3 into it after starting to think it was some of the propaganda crap from the Obama's influence.

    Mindhunters - We liked the series. grew up in the 70s so a lot of the cars, music, props, clothing is cool. 2nd season dragged a little, but you couldn't make a multi season show based off the content of the first season. Skipped over the lesbo content. was this really necessary for the show? if so, show some tatas. more Obama content

    Better than us - 2 episodes in pretty good. the future tech displayed is nice. had to turn on English audio.

    What??? A movie based on a true story of Israel helping smuggle Ethiopian Jews out of Sudan is Obama influence propaganda? What are you talking about?

    In 2018 Netflix added Susan Rice ex UN ambassador for Obama to the Board of Directors. Then Netflix announced a short time later a deal where Oblunder and Chewy would produce content. There has been a lot more SJW crap added since that time.

    So I know at least two people involved in the new show “hyperdrive”. It looks pretty good. As far as American ninja warrior, but in cars. I’m told there will be two more seasons.

    The new Dave Chappelle special is out. It's very non-PC, anti-SJW, offensive, has lefties all freaked out, and hilarious. He actually jokes about Michael Jackson banging kids and defends Louis CK fapping on himself in front of other people. Don't watch it, it is hilarious!

    If you watch until the final credits end, it automatically starts playing another 25 minute bonus segment that you otherwise can't find.

    Saw it last night, very funny! He's got some hilarious insight on a few social issues- like his reference to "alphabet people" in a car on a road trip!

    The new Chappelle special was great. He goes for the SJW jugular right at the beginning.

    Peaky Blinders is fantastic!! Almost through the first 4 seasons and they're only 6 episode seasons.

    My son bought us a smart tv a few months back and he has a Netflix subscription. I've been using it lately to watch Longmire from the start, at least one episode a night. I'm at the point where Henry goes to jail.

    HBO, maybe? I didn't know HBO released any new content to Amazon since their first foray back. . . . 3-4 years ago.

    You can watch HBO content on Amazon with a HBO login.

    Nope. You can buy the episodes on Amazon without HBO subscription.

    The new Bill Burr comedy show is out. It's pretty funny, will be offensive to SJW's and feminists, and probably contains the F word more times per minute than any other comedian I ever watched. And best part, it is certified free of Trump Derangement Syndrome. And, this was in London... hopefully this isn't the end of his career.
