    I can see a lot of guys negatively reacting to it, but it's really good. It has some stupid soap-opera subplots (like a particular auction), but overall it's great. The last two episodes had me on edge the entire time. The ending was perfect. I can't believe they're doing a season 2, it sounds like the worst idea ever, any continuation of this plot can only go badly. They should do the American Horror Story thing and just do a different plot entirely with the same actors.

    Season 3 of Rick And Morty, I should also start new season of South Park... Stranger Things and The Walking Dead starts this month again with new seasons. And Vikings is continuing with season 5 in 29 Nov. 2017. Looking quite good for end of this year.

    We just started watching this. Just finished episode 2, I heard it really gets crazy, which is pretty nuts because it has already started out with a bang.

    Yeah most people told me it started with a bang but it wasn't like that for me. (Probably cause I just finished narcos couple of weeks ago
    and the intro is basically that haha)
    Get ready for some crazy stuff :)

    I noticed on some parts they add that "ticking" to the ost like they did on Dunkirk's ost to build up tension.
    At first I thought I left my washer or dryer or something on but it was the monitors haha

    Star Trek Discovery. First 2 episodes (or two-parter, depending on how you look at it) was pretty polarizing. I was of the opinion that it was "eh, okay." I liked episode 3 significantly more. While not great, it is a pretty significant improvement. Captain Lorca is an intriguing character, reminding me a lot of Rush from Stargate Universe (who's presence was the only redeeming quality of Season 1 among the soapiness of the rest of that show).

    Persona 4 Golden Animation, and rewatching Trigun and Cowboy Bebop.... Yeah, its been a very anime mood around the house.

    Oh, and catching up on South Park. Still good.

    Binging on Mindhunter on NF.

    Interested in how they developed the science behind the profiling.

    Tried to start watching Haven because of John Dunsworth. It's really surreal every time the lead actress's face isn't visible while she's talking. I immediately picture Elena from Uncharted. I didn't know that voice actress wasn't just a voice actress. The music on this show is THE WORST, too.

    I read the Stephen King story this is supposedly based on long ago, but haven't yet been able to discern any relation to this show besides Maine.

    Mindhunter's alright, definitely not binge material (which is good). It's similar to Zodiac in tone but not content, apart from being in the 70s and having a serial killer)\. It's sure better than most of the other trash serial killer shows out there, but I don't really like the main character, his interactions with his girlfriend aren't fun to watch (not that they're supposed to be), and the interviews are so heavy and disturbing that I want to take a bath after every episode. As it should be, but yeah. This is definitely a show most people are going to want to ration out.

    The episode intros with the BTK killer suck.

    I've started watching it recently, it's more just frustrating seeing people in the past so stuck in their ways than anything else :lol: I recently watched a video about Fincher's directing style/camera work and now I can't unsee it in Mindhunters.

    It's not bad, and it's something I should be into for what it is, but it's just kind of boring

    He only did the first two and last two episodes. I haven't seen that video, what's it called? There are multiple on youtube. "Visual Style Breakdown?"

    I'm guessing it might be this one, which was recently making rounds:

    Here's the video itself, I've only seen his 'big' movies (Se7en, Fight Club, Social Network) but I never picked up on them until I watched it

    edit: welp, synrgy beat me to it :lol:
