Latest season of Better Call Saul. Still the best current show out there, imho.

Waiting impatiently for Netflix to pick it up.

It's not on Netflix there? Weird. Because I watched it on Netflix (the shows and movies available are different in Japan though).

Dammit. The Japanese always have all the cool stuff. :(

Netflix here has always been one year behind in BCS.

Thanks Trump. :x

That reminds me though: Aren't Studio Ghibli movies available on Nexflix over there now? (But not here.)

I believe so, but we already have DVDs of the best ones. Just watched a documentary on Ghibli. Cool history. 8)

Mine says #667. The one before that is yours.

Watched El Hoyo (The Platform) last night. Juicy little Spanish psychological horror/thriller with oodles of morality questions.

You'd like to think you'd act differently. But you also know you wouldn't. And revolution starts with a dessert.

Disappointed with the flat ending. Expected and wanted more.
Yep, you totally outsmarted me ~ Wildcat.

Addams Family. No, really. That rabbit hole started from spotting John Astin while going through old Night Court episodes.

I was too young to properly appreciate original Morticia when watching reruns on UHF in the 80s.

Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Ummmmmm ... Morticia

Also beginning Homeland. Two episodes so far. Excellent as usual.

I must say Clare Danes does madness a leeeetle too convincingly.

Have you watched The Americans? Some seasons are a bit dull (2 and 3, ie) but otherwise it is really on top. I'm on season 5 now. Not disappointed. Amazon Prime or a pirate ship near you.

Started it. May go back if the virus goes for another year.

I think we should have a Chick Flick subforum. Yes, I have developed a taste for CFs. They are so wonderfully predictable, even the music. Very reassuring in troubled times.

I watched Extraction on Netflix yesterday. I'll give it a qualified recommendation.

Starting Chris Hemsworth (who plays Thor in the Marvel Avengers movies). He plays like some kind of badass mercenary dude in the movie, and kicks a lot of butt. The action and fighting scenes are top notch. In normal times it probably would have been in movie theaters as a big summer action blockbuster, instead of straight to Netflix. I do have some issues with the movie.
