    the only one of Black Mirror I liked was the bugs episode

    that one was fucking great!! The last Preacher made the whole show worth it, that methane plant scene was crazy!!

    I cant wait for Season 3 of Knights of Sidonia, Better Call Saul, and the rest of Legion

    Fargo is my most anticipated shee-it.

    I haven't checked out Legion. I haven't even checked out Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Really burnt out on the superhero stuff, I think. That massive dump DC took on its own face last year turned me off. And snowballing that shit with Suicide Squad just - No, thanks.

    ...Though, as much shit as I gave Jennifer Jones, I really liked it. Flawed but, like, yea.

    Legion, at least from the pilot, seems miles away from a superhero show. I think you'd love it, Noise.

    Yeah.

    Remember The Knick? You and I were the only ones. We have a connection. You'll like this one, I can tell.

    Legion is like no other superhero show

    it really hasnt taken the approach any other has

    and the new Fargo better be better than season 2, but I dont see it beating season one

    Bran is right. Man Seeking Woman is hilarious and usually spot on. The humor and appeal seems to resonate with both sexes too. The seasons have been getting better. We power watched season 3 to get caught up.

    I've been enjoying Black Mirror. I found many of the topics to be enjoyable and well done.

    And to whoever was complaining about having to watch commercials on streaming services? Pay the extra 4 bucks a month on Hulu. I've never missed that money, and REALLY hated the commercials.

    The ol lady and I burned through "The People Vs. OJ Simpson in 3 days. It was very entertaining and I was surprised at how little I knew about the case. I was 14 when this shit was going down and I seemed to remember OJ being guilty as shit without question. But watching the show, I wasn't as sure. I still think he did it but there was a lot more doubt than when I was a kid.

    Apparently the ESPN documentary on it is even better and more thorough

    But how fucked up was it he went to the funeral

    He obviously meant Jennifer Jones the Canadian curling superstar.

    It's great. The war room parody when they are trying to figure out what to text the girl he met on the train is one of the funniest scenes I have scene.

    I was sold when he was on the blind date with the literal troll. And that was halfway through the pilot.

    And sweet merciful crap, his sister, Britt Lower, is a goddamned goddess.

    Depends on if he actually did it. I was so convinced he did it as a kid. Now, I'm not sure. Is he a woman beating piece of shit? Yes. Did he kill the two of them? I'm not 100 percent sure. I think he did but it wouldn't surprise me if it came out someone else did it.

    There were no other suspects nor did it appear to me that they looked for any other suspects. They zeroed in on him about as soon as it happened. I'm not an OJ supporter or apologist. All I'm saying is the show took me from thinking he did it for sure to not feeling 100 percent about it. Mark Fuhrman is a certified gold piece of shit so I wouldn't put it past him to plant evidence. All that said, OJ got away with beating that woman for years so fuck him. Then even when he's behind bars, he's arrogant as shit.

    Hard to look for other suspects when every piece of evidence points to the one guy with motive and a history of violence. I don't see what doubt the tv series could put in your mind. I just watched it a couple weeks ago and think they did a pretty good job of showing that he very obviously murdered Nicole Brown. Fuhrman put doubt in the already tainted jury, and I'm sure he isn't beyond planting evidence, but his discovering the evidence was coincidental as he was just the first reporting officer.

    I have Hulu and I have the no commercial package. But done shows aren't on hulu and I have to watch them directly from the network sites. But oh well, I don't worry about that anymore I just use show box.

    Just started watching Lethal Weapon and it is pretty damn awesome. It is funny, violent and the guy who plays Riggs nails it. Damon Wayans is a pretty good Murtaugh, even though I wasn't sure at first because I thought he might end up playing the role too much like a comedian. I am only three episodes in but if I didn't have to go to bed, I would definitely binge the entire first season. I say if you are a fan of the movies, you should really like the show.
