Any good? Trailer makes it look campy.

It's a bit goofy as a story. The fight sequences are good. Feels like a 90s TV show (in a good way).

Harlots isn't bad, @Mike.  Feels a bit like a dramatised Blackadder season 3 spin off.  Right down to Captain Darling showing up.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

:lol: Capt Darling was brazen as f*** here.

Glad you like it. I secretly adore it and act like it's a guilty pleasure, but nah. Harlots is my s***, B.

Almost to the end of S01, canny enough but it looks like S02 & 03 are still in the same scenario so i may just bail on it.

Watched first 2 seasons some time ago, both quite good.

Season 2 is actually just the second half of season one. Netflix split it up for some reason. Season 3 is set months later.

Ready access to Always Sunny and 30 Rock means Hulu pays for itself every month.
If Always Sunny wasn't on Netflix I'd cancel it in a heart beat

Just started watching Preacher.
Dominic Cooper may be miscast, but Joe Gilgun and Ruth Negga are superb!
I like it.

Watching The Family on Netflix.

Holy s***! Mark Siljander is the dude we worked with in North Carolina. Doug Coe is a guy I know of very well.

Really not sure how to take this. I had many many conversations with Mark. I obviously disagree with his Christian views, but he seemed genuinely concerned about promoting peace and understanding. He also hated Trump and most of the conservatives, who called him a traitor for reaching out to Muslims. He also came to support LGBT because his daughter is a lesbian, and he realized that he was operating on hate while preaching on love.

But, at the same time, I was skeptical of certain things. He said he disliked conversion, and would always quote "There is no compulsion in religion" from the Qu'ran. He is also an expert on the Qu'ran and believed that its description of Jesus being the spirit of god rather than the son of god is more accurate, as Arabic translates easier from Aramaic than Greek does. Still, the dude would go around the world and talk to people about Jesus. He might use the soft sell, but it sounded to me like he was still trying to convert people.

I also know several people who were good friends with Doug Coe. They aren't remotely religious, but thought he was a very decent guy. However, some things didn't add up for me.

It does make me wonder...the project seemed like a very good one. Use evangelicals and former evangelicals to convince other evangelicals to reach out to Muslims, and accept them as brothers and sisters. I wonder if they signed up for more nefarious reasons. Perhaps not, since funding was so damn difficult to come by.  I just don't f***ing know, but am a little depressed to think I may have had a small part in this s***. I looked into Mark's story quite a bit before going, and just thought it was a tale of redemption from someone who ignorantly hated Muslims to learning Arabic, and becoming something of a scholar on the Qu'ran before dedicating his life to handing out the olive branch to them. But who the f*** knows?
Not one of the cool kids, and really insecure about it.

Anybody watch "Billions" on Showtime?

First season included with Prime. Stayed up until 3:00 the other night binging it. :lol:

I lost track of Billions after a few weeks, didn’t really grip me.

Gave Glow a bit more time, it’s getting better now. Still might not watch it all though.

I haven’t seen it since S1, but it’s pretty impressive to drag out that much darkness and brutality for so long. You can read the book in a couple of days and move onto something nice :lol:

Think it's good with a dark sense of humor. Not sure how they can keep dragging it out recycling crisis after crisis.

Posted this on the 'what are you watching' thread but after the, as you said, relentless grimness of S1 and S2 which teetered on torture-porn territory, S3 just kind of span its wheels for the most part but ends really strongly (dare i say positively, or at least a glimmer of positivity amongst the gloom)

Ending on S4 makes sense, once they ran out of source material they went too far into the shock value arena, then reigned it in to the point of tedium (that aunt Lydia flashback ep ffs). Still, after the episodes since

its really picked up and I've got high hopes for S4.

:lol: Aye just saw the ep you mention in the spoiler. Wew! The stuff happening in the background is more interesting than June's story.

The first part of this season was uneven and concerning but they've def sorted themselves out beautifully. Hopefully they end it soon. Would love a proper binge of this, as depressing as that'd be.

iirc, Atwood has a sequel coming out in a few months. :lol: Looking forward to reading that and hating f***ing everything for a few days afterward.

A binge might be a bit much like! I remember when reviewing S2 the Daily Telegraph's tv reviewer had an actual panic attack during an episode! She said it left her unable to sleep for days and subsequently refused to watch/review it ever again!  ;D

(I can laugh at this because the Telegraph is a paper for utter w*****s who, quite frankly, would love to live in a British version of Gilead)
