watched Crashing on Netflix. Only one season, 6 episodes. The Fleabag one wrote it and is in it. Its hilarious. Way better than Fleabag imo
That sounds really good.

We watched all 6 episodes of Staged over the weekend and loved it. Michael Sheen and David Tennant are playing themselves. They're trying to rehearse for a play over zoom. Never heard of it before and only came across it by chance but loved it.

Another Netflix series that we also recently enjoyed was How to Sell Drugs Online (fast). It's a German comedy about a teenager who sets up a store on the dark web selling MDMA. It's really enjoyable. Only 2 seasons.

Started watching the Snowpiercer show on Netflix. Was just expecting it to be a rehash of the film and an easy eyes- glazed over watch while half asleep but it's turned itself into a hard-bitten policeman solves a murder show, surprisingly engaged with it so far. It's Netflix though so it will turn to utter cop-out shit by the final two episodes i'm sure.

Hmm, I've heard nothing but bad things. But this and Jennifer Connolly might make me go and take a look.

I liked this. Intriguing and atmospheric and nicely setting the scene for what is hopefully some freaky shit
Big time. Just finished the first episode a while ago too, blatant wicker man plot usage to a large extent so far but feels promising with regards to how it could play out.

Anyone seen Love Fraud? It’s three episodes in and pretty gripping stuff. There are some awful bastards out there.

Also watching Raised by Wolves. Sci fi about two androids raising human children on a distant planet after the earth has been destroyed. One of the most original and interesting shows I’ve seen in a while.

Finished up that.

It's a b-movie level show that thinks it's an a-movie level show. I'm definitely gonna watch season 2 because it's a good laugh with some really hammy acting and a ludicrous plot but yeah, it's not what it thinks it is. I'm not gonna say I recommend it to anyone but enjoyable all the same.

speaking of b-movie shows - Lovecraft Country

I can’t decide if it’s great or awful.

Re-watching Community, halfway through season 5 and looking forward to seeing season 6 for the first time (it wasn’t on Netflix the first time we watched it). The Dean is an amazing character.

I'm very much on the side of awful but still watching. The last episode was a lot better in that it toned down the hysterical pace of it all but in general while watching it (a) I have little idea wtf is going on and (b) I don't really care.
