    On Amazon Prime. The American Experience: The Pilgrims. Just search on word Pilgrim and you’ll find it. Please watch. Can’t lose our history. And I suggest reading Nathaniel Philbrick’s Mayflower. $15 in paperback, about the same as a 6 pack of double IPA, and much better for you:thumbsup: I think it’s key to have something specific to build patriotism on. These are helpful in that regard.

    Hey Mat! @Casinostocks There’s a new series on Starz with your beloved Eva Green. I think it starts on February 14. Looks interesting.

    Looks interesting!

    But she's not "his" beloved Eva Green . . . she's MY beloved Eva Green. Mine. All mine! :D



    Ok, that was a little creepy. :oops: I'm just kidding. Maybe.

    Nomadland (currently both in selected theaters and streamed on Hulu) depressed the frak outta me! I know that the whole living in a van is becoming a fad these days with a bunch of scantly clad YouTube babes flaunting the lifestyle (sorry to break it to you, but at the other end is their significant other holding the camera!) but having to live in a sh*tty van as opposed to frolicking in a nicely decked out one, is no fun at all.

    What you will see in that movie is an accurate representation of the very many of our own people who have invariably fallen through the societal cracks. The next time when you see an Amazon delivery guy going slowly or your supermarket checkout gal being a bit slow; don’t be an impatient asshole because they could be roughing it out by having to live in a van!

    "Coming 2 America" was actually a pretty solid sequel:)

    I just finished Narcos Mexico. I think I liked the original Narcos series about Columbia more but this was really good too. I would recommend starting with the original series before starting with the Mexico series as both series tie together with some of the same characters. I would highly recommend checking them out. I really liked them!

    Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar is funny. Also I watched the Ballad of Buster Scruggs the other day at like 3 am and it was great. I had seen it before but enjoyed it a lot more on re-watch. The prospector segment with Tom Waits is my favorite part.

    yes and yes

    CBGB with Allan Rickman has stayed with me for days. Maybe not the best movie ever, but there is an essence to it that's super real

    Being John Malkovich was a pretty cool movie, which left me with the feeling I did not want to be John Malkovich.

    Guardian: The Lonely and Great God streamed on Rakuten Viki (you can find it for free). It’s a Korean show 16 episodes long. It’s got everything from slapstick to romance to conversations with God. It defies expectation. One of the best shows I’ve ever seen. I realize that may not mean anything given the tastes of people but, seriously, it is so much better than you think it’s going to be. It’s nuts how good it is.

    The Imposters on Netflix. I like big con movies. This was 2 seasons long and it goes behind all kinds of different cons as several friends go looking for a person who conned them.

    I’ve been watching this too. It is a really fun show to watch. I would recommend it to others, my father had recommended it to me.

    I’ve been watching the Punisher on Netflix. It’s pretty good but a little slow at times. Overall a solid show so far. I think I’m about 5 episodes in.

    Just rattling on about a dozen or so recent ones on my watchlist in no particular order:

    - GameStopped on Hulu: Interesting documentary by ABC News on this current craziness.

    - Palm Springs on Hulu: It's OK, but I fell sleep half way through and then rewatched it ... I dunno, to me its premise is a blatant rip off of Groundhog Day.

    - Mank on Netflix: I'm panning on binging on this year's Oscar nominations for Best Film. Mank is very good and well acted with big names. The dialog is of high quality.

    - The Ballad of Buster Scruggs on Netflix: Quirky collection of mini stories, black comedy, sad and enjoyable; I liked some of them more than others.

    - Godless on Netflix: I dunno, poor man's Deadwood kinda sorta. I stuck through with it and kinda liked it because I like most modern Westerns.

    - Into the storm on HBO: This Q stuff craziness. Nuff said!

    The ones which I watched a bit of, maybe an entire season in some cases and then gave up on the next season or just in the middle of the first season after 2-3 episodes. Some I may go back to if I really get bored: Harlots (Hulu), Justified (Hulu), The One (Netflix), Age of Samurai - Battle for Japan (Netflix), The Lost Pirate Kingdom (Netflix) ... These last two I really wanted to like because I like sword fights and I also like pirate movies but I just can't get into Docu-Movies, every time I venture into one, I get annoyed with the format!

    Interesting! I think we have the exact opposite of the steamers. You have Hulu, HBO and Netflix. I have none of those, but I have Amazon Prime, Disney+, Sling and FuBo.

    Only good thing I can mention right now is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+. First episode was excellent, IMO. Theater quality all around. It's a short series - just six episodes, and I'm looking forward to Fridays for the next 5 weeks. Between that and the totally superb Mandalorian (IMO better than all but 2 or 3 of the Star Wars movies) that is my money's worth for Disney+ right there.

    I dunno what it is with Amazon, but we are seriously out of sync and there is no way I would pay for it if it didn't come "free" with my Prime membership. Only TWO series I have liked, but I did like them a lot . . . Bosch (one of my favorite shows anywhere, ever) and Jack Ryan. Even the shows that on paper I should have really, really liked, such as The Boys, Carnival Row, The Romanoffs, and Hanna . . . uh, no. The movies are no better. Random chance should have produced more than two series (and zero movies) that I have liked over all these years . . .

    ^ oh I do have Amazon Prime, Disney+ (in addition to ESPN+ as a part of the bundle with Hulu) Apple TV+, Discovery+ and Curiosity. Some of these are part of my phone plan so I was getting free steaming with my mobile plan.

    My favorite channel is still the CPK subforum but I watch Prime often and NatGeo on Disney+. I prefer Nature and Science documentaries on Disney and Discovery. Curiosity is well worth it at 19.95 for an entire year!

    Been searching for something to binge on. For some reason I had been avoiding The Americans (Amazon Prime) all this time. The pilot started out a bit slow so I wasn’t so sure but now 6 episodes into S1 and I have found my next bingearoo... Keri Russell being really easy on the eyes = extra extra bonus ;)

    While on Amazon Prime, watched one entire season of Goliath and some episodes of Orphan Black neither of which titillated me enough to carry on with these two.

    Solar Opposites because it is the same writers for Rick and Morty. It is even more insane. I love it.

    We crushed The Office (US) out of boredom. I never remembered liking it, but maybe now that I am older, it does have some great moments.

    If you have Hulu, watch the documentary: WeWork, the making and breaking of a 47 billion $ unicorn.

    SMDH!
