Just had to drop by and mention 13 Reasons Why. f***ing hell, what a great programme :clap:
:thup: Already mentioned this in the other thread. So tragic and heartbreaking but it has funny parts as well. Brilliant show.

As someone who is around the age of the characters on the show, I know what goes on and what happens and the show just makes you think the miniscule things you do can have a gargantuan effect on people, some may know that already but the show highlights stuff brilliantly. Just thinking about it makes me depressed. :lol:

But I strongly​ recommend it to anyone who's not seen it yet.

2 episodes into this and it seems pretty good so far despite not really buying a couple of the characters - although this seems more of a personal issue I have with American high school type stuff. I tried and gave up watching the 12 Monkeys series and we'd just finished The Lizzie Borden Chronicles so it's nice to be watching something that actually seems well made and interesting.

The Bowie documentary 5 years is well worth a watch for fans of his. Ridiculously talented group of people he worked with.

Is that the one that was on BBC?
"Elsewhere, at worst, modern commercial football could be seen as the mall rather than the circus; insidiously bland, decaffeinated and pre-packed, its relentless formulaic repetition an instrument for disabling consciousness rather than manipulating it."

I've actually just 'got' it, finishing off The Leftovers first then I'll, perhaps, jump on that. O0
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.

I've little doubt I'll tan Handmaid's Tale and you'll still be stoating about halfway through season 1 of The Expanse. :rolleyes:

Has anybody watched this Roger Stone thing?

Watched the first 3 episodes of Master Of None (S1).

How disappointingly nothing, is it a comedy or like a 'funny' drama? That 'Family' episode :lol: you couldn't get much more saccharine blandness. Occasional laughs, many many groans.

It's worth sticking with - I wasn't keen on the first few episodes but it gets much better as the season goes on.

Man it's crazy how differently people see things.

I honestly think it's the best show currently in production.

Is anybody subscribing to Hulu Plus outside the US? I'm very interested but seems to be some hassle involved.

I am. They've f***ed up their apps though, seriously considering cancelling because of it. Absolutely loved Hulu above all other streaming services before their update.

Ok so me and my wife finished this last night. I'm emotionally exhausted  :lol:

Would massively recommend this to anyone. It took a few episodes to grab me but it's arguably the best thing I've watched since Breaking Bad.

Three episodes deep into The Keepers. It's very good (though disturbing).
