Netflix & streaming video stuff worth watching


Recommended Posts

We watched the first episode of "Lovecraft Country" on HBO last night. It's an adaptation of a novel where a young man, his friend, and his uncle are travelling across 1950s Jim Crow American in search of his missing father. They (obviously) encounter a lot of racism but there are also some crazy non-human monsters. The first episode was like Stranger Things on steroids.

What in the hell is wrong with you?   Breaking Bad is the best TV show of all time. If you want a show that is exciting and has constant turns go find a soap opera.   This boggles

I'm almost ashamed to post this but I finally got around to watching Breaking Bad.  Holy.  Crap.  It was stupendous.  I immediately fired up Better Call Saul afterwards.

Cobra Kai dropped on Netflix.  I haven't seen it yet.  I am guessing you have seen it Teach

 

Watched it when it was on YouTube.

 

If you loved the Karate Kid (aka you are a human being with brains) then you'll ABSOLUTELY LOVE Cobra Kai.  I watched it more than once and I loved how they captured the feel of the movie in the series.  Such a great show imho.

Just 3 episodes in and it is awesome.  Really curious where it goes.  If we weren't traveling early in the morning, I would watch the first season tonight.

Great show. Season 3 is supposed to come out next year. I didn't realize Netflix had acquired it.

Randomly fired up Train to Busan on Netflix last night since I saw it was leaving the platform at the end of August.  I've probably looked at the movie at least a dozen times over the past year and never pulled the trigger.  It was a really, really pleasant surprise.  It's a Korean zombie apocalypse movie.  Similar setup to World War Z in terms of the way it's shot except it packs a much, much bigger emotional component.  There is also a little bit of an underlying class structure setup aka Snowpiercer.  Movie is in subtitles but the dialogue is relatively minimal so it shouldn't be a distraction.  Would definitely recommend it.

A very good choice. I watched it some time ago.

 

There is an animated sequel (or prequel?) on Netflix as well I've been meaning to get to.

Loved ‘Game of Thrones’? Get Ready for This Major New Netflix Series from the Same Masterminds

 

Quote

 

If you loved Game of Thrones, feast your eyes on the next best thing to the highly anticipated prequel.

 

GoT creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are re-teaming up to develop an all-new adaptation of a popular science fiction trilogy. The series will be based on Chinese author Liu Cixin’s The Three-Body Problem, which introduces viewers to an alternate history.

 

“Liu Cixin’s trilogy is the most ambitious science-fiction series we’ve read, taking readers on a journey from the 1960s until the end of time, from life on our pale blue dot to the distant fringes of the universe,” Benioff and Weiss said in a statement, according to USA Today. “We look forward to spending the next years of our lives bringing this to life for audiences around the world.”

ooh, I'm ready for this! My wife always watches the Great British Baking Show, and I always think: who needs that crap, just grill up some meat!
