Thinking of checking this out:


#422

duh. of course!


#423

suits is a guilty pleasure.


#424

I liked the way Sharp Objects ended.
Anybody watch yet?

Make sure you keep watching the credits for an extra scene.


#425

man those last 2 episodes felt like they lasted 8 hours - all for that sad sack shitty ending. Meh. I dislike Gone Girl immensely. I will be giving anything to do with Gillian Flynn a wide berth from now on.


#426

me fucking too. NO SPOILERS ON THE ENDING.

i made it that fucking far…i have two more episodes. i save it for when there’s shit all else to watch.

how bout this:


#427

I liked the last two episodes the best. Finally shit starts happening.

Do not read anything if you want to be surprised. And please watch through credits for a last scene you’re not expecting.


#428

Yeah, DUH!
:rofl: :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: :grin:


#429

i told you it was who we thought it was. jerk face!


#430

Yes but I still liked the way it ended.


#431

It was lame


#432

Ending was stupid. I read an interview with Gillian Flynn and they kept asking if her or the other writers thought about changing the ending. I mean it was her first novel, so I can forgive some of the denoument but I didn’t need the graphic scene in the closing credits. Show looked great and the acting was quality but the material was just lacking.


#433

DLing it right now!!
Will probably watch it tomorrow. :+1:t2:


#434

I just finished watching Patrick Melrose.
What did Mrs. Highlife think of the books?


#435

She said “I liked it. It was terrible. Bad people. Doing bad things to children.”

She didn’t elaborate so as not to spoil the plot for me.


#436

Yes, what Mrs. Highlife said.
Story-wise, it’s not something I’d usually watch or read but I enjoyed watching the TV series. I didn’t read the books so I can’t compare them but it was made well and acting-wise, Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job as the main character.


#437

Norm Macdonald has a show

The Jane Fonda episode is worth watching.

I loved his earlier podcast Norm Macdonald Live. I’m glad he’s on Netflix, but I don’t think there will be a second season.


#438

So good! Hugh Grant is excellent as Jeremy Thorpe.


#439

^^^^^
I don’t watch a great deal of TV these days but A Very English Scandal was superb.


#440

I too enjoyed it. Didn’t think it would run into dark humor territory, but it did.
