    I didn't like that they
    killed off many of the good, albeit flawed characters, but let the one truly despicable character live (although behind bars it looked like). Also am generally unhappy about the degree to which suspension of disbelief is required by the viewers for certain characters, like V.M. Vargas and his operation in season 3, and Lorne Malvo in season 1.

    So, I watched disc one ( first 3 episodes) of Legion.... I was not expecting that shit. I don't know how else to describe it... it's like vintage X-men meets American Horror Story meets Twin Peaks meets Stranger Things, and throw in some extra Stephen King & Twilight Zone....

    :weird::dizzy::tinfoilhat:

    I gave the first disc to Jerry, told him "must watch"... and I shall continue with disc two tomorrow.... :hide:

    AND, weirdly enough, it was created & written by Noah Hawley! Same guy who did/does the Fargo series! LMAO :up:

    Uh-huh. So... Legion... holy shit!! :argh: When I got to Jer's house tonight, I was about to say he should definitely watch that first disc I gave him last night before I left, but he cut me off... "I watched all three episodes on there... love it."

    Knew it. :p And we're both in agreement about the mid-warping David Lynchian-ness of it all, as well as our theory about the main "protagonist"....

    I watched episodes 4-6 this evening, gave the disc to Jerry afterward... had no words, just:

    And a warning... if you're not prepared for some seriously tripped-out but truly brilliant shit, don't bother.

    Otherwise, jump on in... it's one hell of a ride. :cool: Several, really. LMAO :df:

    This absolutely belongs here :D
    From last week's "Who Is America"

    Who is America? got a food critic eating what he believed to be gourmet human flesh: 'It's simply melting on my palate''
    I am not even sure what impresses me more, the "anally-aged veal" or the "ethically sourced, vegetarian-fed Chinese dissident" ... but omnivores do eat so many strange things, who knows...

    The second season of The Good Place was finally on Netflix. I liked it, but I liked the first season better.

    So sad to see them leave, I love Tim Gunn. :sob:
    The show won't be the same without them, and I don't see how it can be anything but another bargain basement All Stars. I hope at the very least, fur will still not be allowed to be used. While Heidi and Tim (animal lover and activist) were on, fur was a huge no-no.

    I really liked Disenchament! Sad there's not more episodes.

    Just started The Bodyguard after hearing so many people raving about it. 2 episodes in & it's pretty good (hasn't blown my mind though.)

    We watched Jack Ryan last night. I keep forgetting that I get TV shows with my Amazon Prime! I liked it a lot and will watch the last couple of episodes later.
