Netflix |OT| Where Binge Watching is Encouraged

Couldn't even make it through the first 5 minutes of the first episode of The Standups. Not funny at all. Whether it was the delivery or the jokes or both, just fell completely flat.
Man I don't know what to say. My wife and I loved it and I've got 6 other people to watch it and they all loved it. Give Bargatze another chance.

Curious about Friends From College.

Also, Release the Hounds?

Release the Hounds is a British television game show broadcast on ITV2 since October 2013. The show, hosted by Matt Edmondson, culminates in the participants being chased by dogs in the hope of winning a large cash prize.

What the what?

That sounds like something they'd show on that network from The Running Man.

I was curious so I checked out a little bit of it, they drop the people in the middle of a Friday the 13th looking site lol. Those dogs are fast as shit.
 
Finished IZombie Seasons 1-3 in two weeks lol
Glad it renewed for a 4th but hope it doesn't drag too much...I hate shows that go for too long.

Need more shows like that.
at least izombie is more like a half season (except s2). shows that have 20+ episodes and are a hour long...ugh...its almost impossible for them not to drag on.

Gotta have a hell of a story to fill up that much time. Sadly, it's typically not demanded by the creative team, but by the networks to sell ad space. Lost could have been an amazing three/four season series. Instead we have 143 hours of TV that's impossible to recommend to new watchers.
 
I just finished watching Five Came Back, which is a good documentary series if you like movies, WWII, or both. Looking through Netflix's Classics catalog, I noticed several films that were mentioned in Five Came Back are available:

The Battle of Midway
Know Your Enemy: Japan
Let There Be Light
The Memphis Belle
Nazi Concentration Camps
The Negro Soldier
Prelude To War
San Peitro
Thunderbolt
Tunisian Victory
 
Friends From College not working for me. Not very funny nor moving. Great cast but they're not given much to work with. Music sounds like royalty-free youtube background music. Will likely not make it past the first episode unless I hear it becomes really great.

The reviews I've seen have gone in hard on this one.
 
How did Friends from College even got greenlit? This is absolutely terrible. You don't connect them as life time friends at any point, it's not funny at all, the guy that plays the dumb awkward character is supposed to be a best seller author? What the hell is even this series?

Such a waste of some good actors in it.

I was interested in Friends from College when I read the cast, but the reviews didn't hold back. Too many other shows I could be watching instead of wasting time on it, so I didn't even bother.
 
Gotham S3 is STILL not been given to a UK broadcaster, I get the feeling Netflix are about to scoop it up?
Channel 5 are still saying they are going to air it but not until at least the Autumn but it is out on DVD next month and if the contract with Netflix says they have to wait until the DVD release it is possible they could get it before C5 but who knows.
 
Chasing Coral is pretty cool. Although I feel like they knew that the coral footage would only last 10 minutes so they spent all this time talking about camera set ups and whatnot. lol

This was a pretty good series. I hope the original films hold up.
 
Finally completed Iron Fist. There is a good show here that is weighed down heavily by the family drama. I felt like by the end of it all the Meechums didn't even really need to be there. They missed an opportunity to delve even deeper into The Hand. We got that some, but not much.
