DOCUMENTARY NOW!



Each episode is a beautifully and lovingly made parody of specific landmark documentaries (Grey Gardens, Nanook of the North, Wild Wild Country, etc) or genres.  The production values are amazing and the results are deliciously silly--but probably only if you're familiar with the film(s) in question.  A real gem, and one of the highlights of my TV week.

I haven't seen season two yet, but as far as I know they're fully separate stories, with just Bill Pullman's character as the common thread between them.

edit: Your post got my hopes up, so I went and looked, but season two still isn't on US Netflix yet.

Finished the 1st season, Biel's best work for sure, not that I've seen everything she's done, ended up liking her season more than Carrie's but still both are good.


TRAVELERS (on Netflix). So, so good. A very fun and highly addictive sci-fi show. There is a splash of cheese for sure, but production values are pretty high, and some performances are magnificent. Excellent blend of human drama and complex science fiction. Becomes wildly unpredictable in seasons 2 and 3, which do not disappoint.

If you can get into it (you'll know after the first episode), you might find that Travelers is surprisingly fresh.

I have seen 8 episodes of S1 and it's really good, I feel like shit is about to get real.

I'm hooked.

The Good Fight is a glorious, glorious show.

You know how everyone wants "their" show to be the next The Wire? In the sense that it will be considered cult in a few years. Well, The Good Fight is my Wire.

(I'm not that big fan of The Wire; I prefer The Good Fight.)

The Good Fight iz what happens when a parallel BEST UNIVERSE getz into a weekly brawl with our own PRIME UNIVERSE.
I love its rebellious tone and characters so much.
Thank you for the JoCo Mr & Mrs King

Excellent! I can confirm that Season 2 is better, and Season 3 is better still. Definitely stick with it. Too bad it's been canceled by Netflix, but Season 3 does have a worthy finish.

Hmm, I will have to give The Good Fight a shot, then.

Love, Death, & Robots was excellent. On the level of looking at pure animation ... I've never seen anything like it.

I'll be watching season two of The OA. I found episodes in season one interesting and unique enough to want to know what was going to happen next, and so I want to know what will happen in season two.
