    Does one need to see man on the moon first before watching documentary

    It was weird, that documentary. There were interesting nuggets but it really seemed more like watching a guy have a really awkward nervous breakdown. I didn't enjoy it, but it's interesting. Don't go into it expecting it to be about Kaufman, it's about Carey.

    It would help, but at the same time it will ruin some things in the documentary

    having not watched it some of the stuff that happens on and off the screen you wont see coming



    I doubt watching the doc first will ruin the movie

    it might even give you a bigger appreciation for the craft Jim brought to the movie


    If I had the chance Id rather see the movie before the doc, but the other way around should be entertaining

    Jim Carey invented method acting, bro.

    But seriously, I didn't enjoy it either. Didn't finish it for that matter. It seemed less "interesting" and more awkward and forced than anything. I wonder how much effort he would have put into all that without cameras there to document his creative genius....

    He's not unlikeable but he also comes across in the doc footage as being incredibly self absorbed. Next level narcissism and I think that's where I fell off. It seemed like a perversion of Kaufman's intentions rather than a celebration.

    It's a very weird film maybe that makes it worth the watch but I didn't enjoy it. Had it been made from a perspective other than Carey... that's now the story I would want to see and hear.

    it was based on Jims version of Andy, and Andys own family seemed to think he did an amazing job where they actually felt like they were talking to Andy himself

    It really helps to have been a big fan of Andys style of comedy and the movie itself first

    The Magicians, season 2. Better than the first and worth a watch. Binged the whole season in 2 days.

    I would watch it on SyFy but they censor it to hell. So I wait until it hits Netflix when it is fully uncensored.

    Fucking read my mind broski! We’ve watched like 8 episodes today. I’m in and out with dad jobs but it seems pretty good. Anything else for when we finish this?

    Started watching Dark. At the end of episode 2 I paused it. Then I told my wife 4 predictions I have about where the story will go. Most times that's a bad thing. But I really like the style of this show. It's some weird mash of The Killing and Lost.

    Troll Hunter is great, especially Kesley Grammer. Blinky is my favorite role by him.

    The new Duck Tales episodes are good. I've heard Avatar: The Last Air Bender, Legend of Korra and Steven Universe all have a lot of adult fans.

    Avatar is a perfect series for adults with kids. It's got good action, comedy, characters, storytelling. It's honestly a total package. Haven't seen all of Korra, but it's a great followup.

    I just got Netflix. Since I’m just coming out of the dark ages I am just now figuring out it’s power. It actually suggest things for me. It proposed Leminy Snickets and LEGO Ninjago. That and the ones you guys suggested should keep my hellions busy.
