This looks great. Haven't read any of the books or played the games but its a really popular series. Excited about the new fantasy shows coming out this year and next. GoT might have **** the bed at the end, but part of the shows legacy will be kicking open the door for successor fantasy shows.

Anyone watch TNTs Animal Kingdom? decent series. I feel like i scroll netflix and prime for 30 minutes each time I watch something and keep coming up empty.
Have been watching Animal Kingdom from the beginning - enjoyable and has some good/interesting characters.

Watching "the boys" on amazon prime, pretty good so far. This is as close as I get to enjoying the super hero genre.

It: Chapter Two reportedly clocks in at 2:45, edited down from four hours. Personally, I don't have any problems with film duration. I fully expect a bunch of rage though, just like with Endgame, as if it was the first three hour film that ever existed.

Started watching 'Entourage' this weekend for the first time in years, forgot how much I love Seasons 1-5. It's up there with The Office and Parks and Rec on re-watchable shows.

Finally started 'Euphoria' last night and holy **** it's something else. Beautifully shot/done, but the story is a mind bender. I may no longer want children, finishing the final 2 episodes tonight/tomorrow. Heard the finale was a let down, but when are they not?

Binged it last week. I really liked it, left me wondering if they will have a season 2.
There will be a season two and I remember reading somewhere they've ordered a third as well. I'm about halfway through and I very much enjoy it. Very dark comedy/dramedy is right in my wheelhouse.

Hoping The Hunt gets let out of jail eventually. It's one thing to ease off due to sensitivity; there's nothing new about that. But if it got completely shelved because of politics, that's no bueno.

Second season of Mindhunter is out on Netflix. That's next on my plate. Really dug the first season and I've heard nothing but good things about the second.

I really liked the first season. Haven't seen the second yet. Was waiting for it to end - I'll subscribe for a month and knock it out and then unsubscribe.
2nd season was good as well..the ending certainly either signals the end of it or leaves open how in the heck do they go forward in season 3 if there is one.

I also really liked GLOW season 3, but man there were a lot of unresolved threads. Debbie looked to take part in a bit of an afterschool special angle about bulimia that just kind of got dropped. Tamme got addicted to pain killers and booze which would have been interesting parallel to explore given that that has been the end of many a professional wrestler but that just fizzled out too. Sam had a heart attack and, well, that was that. Russell? Randy? I guess some of this stuff can be revisited and resolved in a fourth season, but the concern is with Netflix cancelling very popular shows at the height of their popularity and it would be a real bummer if they did that with this one and left the show on this ending.

Hard to imagine that the actress who played Trudy in Mad Men, has 1) a hot bod, she was sort of 50's doughty in Mad Men and 2) is in a show about wrestling.

Ah, but that's the thing. She's playing a struggling actress who is constantly at odds with the fact that her only work is on a wrestling show. What I mean to say is I don't think it's so much a show about wrestling as it is a show about a bunch of people with different backgrounds and different aspirations bonding over something.

Not surprised about that bod though. I didn't watch Mad Men so I think the first time I saw her was in Scream 4 and it was just one of those moments where you go holy crap, who is this crazy hot girl?
