    Sharp Objects worth starting? Also, which should be higher on our (with wife) list, the Americans or Sons of Anarchy?

    Didn’t watch sharp objects, so I’m curious what others say.

    I would go SOA over the Americans. Both great shows. Both good endings too, which is important if you’re watching multiple seasons. I think SOA was a bit better written with more characters/subplots. Also, it will set you up for the new SOA spinoff the Mayans coming out soon.

    SoA is for you, not her - I hit 7 seasons in 4 weeks. Your Wife probably won’t like it - mine turned her nose up to it immediately because there’s some graphic scenes that’ll be like WTF! The plot is pretty damn good with a few instances of “oh, come on, really?”

    Btw, a spinoff to the show is starting next month - The Mayans, M.C.

    Netflix has Ken Burns’ The Vietnam War now.

    It’s one of the most moving documentaries I’ve ever seen. I saw it on PBS when it first came out and I’ve already done a re-watch on Netflix and I rarely do that with documentaries. Incredible narraration. The soundtrack is mostly done by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Outstanding stuff.

    If you like Martial Arts + no modern day tech + adventure + super over-the-top acting, special effects, and budget, watch Into The Badlands. Very very entertaining show! Just sometimes makes you go "what...?"

    My wife and I have been watching both, and we're on the next to last season of each. I think it's pretty much a wash. They press different buttons. I do think SOA was maybe one season too long. I would have been happy if somebody told me just to skip the season in Ireland. The series as a whole is just dragged out, but there are enough good parts that we've kept with it. The Americans is tighter, and about one season shorter, as it happens.

    Yes. This is as good as television can get.

    Anyone watch the Zlatan doc on Netflix? Showed up after going through First Team. It was pretty good.

    not on Netflix, but Phenoms on Fox Sports is really good...recommend it.

    Did we ever talk Ready Player One? Just watched it. Thoroughly enjoyed. But I’m a simple man when it comes to films.

    I’ll pretty much always like it if Spielberg is involved. Same for Wes Anderson.

    Fuck it. I know what I like.

    Just a heads up to anyone who may not know, "All Or Nothing", the documentary about Man City shot during their title-winning season last year, goes live on Prime on Friday.
