Didn't I watch it LAST April on Netflix though??? I'm sure I started it and just couldn't go any further. I thought so anyhow. After BirdBox and the "Dno't make a F'ing Sound" John Crapbehinder movie it was just too much. I don't recall if I found out who the adversary was in the movie. It was that short of a watch.

I was confused too. Maybe it is a part 2? I don't even remember what happened, just killer birds attracted to noise and a bleak scenario. Did I finish it? I dunno. Whether this is part 2 or not, I'm not inclined to watch it.

Killer birds. Sounds familiar. I'm a big Tucci fan from the day when he was the BG in Murder One or Murder in teh First or whatever that show that NBC amazingly blew up and killed back in 92 or 93 or so.

BCS is gonna get interesting. Now you're getting into near overlap time with BB.

Caught the first episode of Outsider or The Outsider on HBO. Looks like it could be good.

And Dark Matter. They couldn't even end the show on a hurried conclusion and just stopped it abruptly right in the middle of a story line. That show was awesome.
they canned it? I'm surprised it lasted that long, being good sci-fi. To me it was the closest thing to Firefly, though not as good.

+1 on this and though it was short they covered a decent story arc, so it wasn't so bad that it got canned. They say each piece on set was hand made by Italian craftspeople.
Great show. Too bad they ran out of money. The second season timeline was really sped up as a result. Still good. I got stuck out of town for a couple days and binge watched the whole thing.

Needed a show to watch with the warden so we just finished up You. It's a pretty twisted show that has all sorts of plot twists that I never saw coming. Season 3 has already been green lighted from what I hear.

Also, The Ranch final season aired this morning FYI.

I tried again to watch The Ranch. I made it 8 or 9 episodes and had to stop.

I mean, damn, Ashton. Do you want to portray EVERYONE on that show as a raging alcoholic???? It didn't have enough laughs to overcome the unnecessary swearing, drinking to excess and the d-hole father. It was like he wanted to make TSS but without censors. So he swears and drinks and gets into more serious situations. But the only nudity is his dumb ass. ROFL!!!!

It's got a lot going for it. But it never gelled. Oh, and Debra Winger is NOT cut out for sit-com work. She comes off very wooden.

We finished up the series Raising Dion. It's a bit like Stranger Things (even had a phone ring tone in there by the Stranger Things theme song). It's decent, although doesn't have an adequate conclusion so hopefully that means there will be a next season.

The little boy who plays "Dion" is adorable.

I was a bit surprised by the "Pat" character because I was like why does that guy look sound and act like John Ritter, only younger, and not dead. It turns out he had a son who acts... I did not know that.

Looking for something different to watch last night and I see "After Porn Ends". A documentary on aging porn stars and their lives.

Yeah, there's some gratuitous porn scenes in there. And most of the male performers seems to be doing OK. Some quite good. But then there's the ladies.

If I can be perfectly honest... a majority of them have been train wrecks in life. A few are quite content with their choices but others, well, are quite sad.

Worth a watch.

I am finding it hilarious and have trouble turning it off. The swearing is a lot less than I did or my family did when I was growing up and the drinking did not seem excessive compared to what I was doing from high school up to my mid 40's. When I had blue collar jobs I would regularly drink at work, as did pretty much everyone I worked with. After college if I was not headed out to a bar after work I made sure there were at least two cases of cold beer at home.

Anyone watch "Russian Doll"? The wife made me watch that one, and we got sucked in. Wasn't bad.
I liked it. I thought it was funny and I just kept wanting to know where it was going. Walked around singing Gotta Get Up for days. Looking forward to season 2.

How do you make a Season 2 of RD???? I feel like a lot of Netflix shows are designed for a single season then the second season seems like an afterthought. Altered Carbon seems like they didn't plan on another season.

OTOH, SuperKids or whatever that lame "superhero kids that grew up" comic series WAS designed around multiple seasons. And I couldn't take it b/c it ran too slow.

I guess it's a tightrope, eh?
