And a whole bunch of idiots that believe it and repeat it and on and on.

Quoted from toyotaboy:I just flag them.. there's a lot of videos showing things that can't possibly work, like engines that run forever on magnets, or solar panels made from CD's.

To erratic at the end and left more open ended questions as far as Dark goes

Quoted from CUJO:Dark really "pulled" me in. Even a year later, I'll go watch parts of it. It really takes you out of this reality into another. So many plot twists and
"say what's?".
Same producer did another series 1899 about a Titantic like vessel called the Prometheus crossing the pond with a various set of individuals, all with back stories, like Lost series. Bizzare Science Fiction with a little Wild Wild West flave to it.
Really was hoping for a season 2 but it didn't happen.

Yeah, and they nuked that 1899 seried so friggin quick. Damn I hate how they punt new series so quick.
I was real pissed off they dumped "Night Sky". man it was very well done.

1899 was great. Very sad to hear that season 2 got nixed. They left the show on a wild cliffhanger.

Yes agreed on 1899

It did..that's why I keep watching it over and over, esp parts of it. It makes more sense to me as I do this.

The biggest take away I can't resolve is the guy that was the assistant at the nuclear plant that always wore the eye patch.

Then in the final episode when they were all sitting around about to eat and it looked like he was the husband of the lady whose husband hung himself in the opening episode, he was about to explain how the accident that required the eye patch happened when they all got distracted, power surge. Deja Vu loomed.

Dang it !!! Now gotta watch it again!

Something about the bus stop out in the middle of nowhere across from where the nuclear plant gets built, the whole interdimensional time machine thing, the watchmaker built with hints from this future book he hadn't written yet...Very deep....and Dark..One of my all time Netflix favorites next to Sisyphus: The Myth.

Quoted from skink91:

It sort of feels like most YouTubers are merely stealing other people’s content themselves… so I have trouble crying a river for someone losing money because they can’t monetize their reaction videos.

Reaction videos are a total joke. But I think the cream ultimately rises to the top on YouTube. Take Rick Beato for instance. I usually learn something pretty significant watching his videos. I’m a huge music fan and his explanations, analyses, and demonstrations are pretty awesome in my opinion.

#4058 33 days ago

I am going to start lost and my fiancée will see it for the first time. I think it’s a pretty good show. Let’s see what she thinks.

I read an article on him and how his YouTube stardom just kinda happened - guy in his 50s that likes music and a few years later, boom....

I like those kind of success stories.

I randomly stumbled upon Beato a couple years ago and was instantly hooked. He's got such a great personality, and his deep knowledge and love of music is infectious. I literally subscribe to less than ten YouTube channels, and his is one of them.

#4061 32 days ago

One of the first Beato videos I watched was entirely about how crappy new “music” is (and exactly why), and I knew right then he was a man of culture and taste.

Yes, but it's more than just liking music. He's a stellar musician himself and a producer and really knows his stuff and is able to explain it to a lay person in an informative and engaging way.

Quoted from skink91:

Right. But he doesn't just do it in "grumpy old man" style and disregard everything just because it's new. I appreciate that. He does in fact give it a chance before trashing it- haha. I first heard the word syncopation from Keith Richards, but I truly understood what it meant after listening to Beato and why it's so essential in making music interesting. Modern pop music is largely lacking it.

I'm really digging this guy's channel. He finds songs that either sampled earlier songs, or take samples from odd places

Those are cool. I'll check out more of that guy. Seems like things go both ways for Prince as I remember hearing a story about how after he wrote the song Purple Rain, he realized that parts of it sounded a lot like the song "Faithfully" by Journey that had just come out a year before. Story goes that Prince contacted songwriter Jonathan Cain (Journey's keyboardist and occasional rhythm guitarist) to get out in front of things and tell him that some of the chord changes to his song, Purple Rain were a lot like Faithfully and to not sue him. Cain loved Prince and Purple Rain and said that he wouldn't. I thought that was pretty funny.

Seems like the story is basically true given this article:

#4065 32 days ago

I think princes music and story is epic. I’ve been a fan since just before 1999 was released. In Detroit mojo played him.

#4066 32 days ago
Quoted from scottslash:

"A Gentleman in Moscow" with Ewan McGregor on Showtime/Paramount has been pretty good. We're about 5 episodes in.

I just finished a Gentleman in Moscow and must say it is the biggest surprise in a long time. It was really good to say the least. Its a great story with a backdrop of the socialist revolution in Russia after WW1.

#4067 32 days ago

I’m watching a historical drama on Netflix that I am really enjoying called Mr. Sunshine. It’s set during the end of the 19th century in Korea, called Joseon at the time, when they were trying to maintain their independence and before Japan annexed them in 1910.

I’m on episode 14 of 20 but really liking it so far.

#4068 32 days ago

I also really enjoyed this.

If you liked Sandman, DBD is a fun spinoff from Neil Gaiman's crazy mind

1899 was going to be EPIC! That twist… way too expensive as it turns out. And Netflix is greedy; they won’t sell content elsewhere

Dark was also awesome.

I was excited to watch Prime series The Boys new season.Watched first two episodes tonight and it was just ok.
Unfortunately the show focused on swinging dick instead of slowly bouncing titties.

#4073 31 days ago

If you want to find something enjoyable to watch…go take in The Acolyte on Disney. Then watch ANYTHING else. By comparison, that “anything else” will be fantastic.

What they are doing to this franchise is embarrassing! Oofta.

South Park has made it so every Kathleen Kennedy fail for Lucasfilm or Star Wars, etc makes me hear her saying "stick a chick in it and make her gay." That episode was brutal but so funny.

One of the best South Park episodes in recent memory. Pretty much on point as well.

Wow RyanStl wasn't wrong, this acolyte turd is just the worst thing on TV.

Catching up on Loki season 2,decent stuff.

not as good as season 1, but worth watching.

watched dark matter. it was ok. last episode was interesting but a bit out there. but I wont add a spoiler to ask that question.

I thoroughly enjoyed this 2014 movie I stumbled across with Ethan Hawke the other night. Definitely a mind bender.

#4080 25 days ago

Started watching Monsieur Spade. We are enjoying it but it can get a little slow. It jumps around in time, too, which is usually easy to pick up on but not always obvious. I think we are 5 or 6 episodes in and the who-done-it story lines are just starting to make sense.

That was a cool movie, but extremely complicated. I didn't fully understand it until I watched some YouTube videos that broke the whole thing down. I felt the same way about Tenet, although even that movie was probably a bit easier to follow than Predestination.

#4082 23 days ago

If you are looking for some comedy in your life, check out The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin. It has some Men In Tights flavor.

Noel Fielding was super-entertaining on his season of Taskmaster. Will definitely check this out, thanks!

I've watched it three times, the third time with my girlfriend. This is needed to pick up on alot of subtle details unless you really focus on everything the first time.

It is a well executed paradoxal cerebral time travel film.

Ethan Hawke is the "rooster". He alone created the paradox and only he can fix it. It is a emotional, well executed written time travel style movie.
Might be the best I've seen. The only real reality is the one that Ethan can succesfully re-create and only he can fix things.

Someone turned us on to Bloodline (kind of an oldie), got totally hooked. Danny was a great character. A real schemer. If you haven’t seen it (Netflix) doubt you will be disappointed.

#4087 21 days ago

Rewatching all of Dexter. It feels nice and cozy so far. I understand there is a newer season so I will watch all of them in order now.

Recommended.

I watched Bloodline too - found it pretty uneven but the Danny character was my introduction to Ben Mendelsohn, who is a terrific actor and makes a first-rate villain. Came for Kyle Chandler (coach from Friday Night Lights), stayed for Mendelsohn.

#4089 20 days ago

Just watched The Boys Season 4, Episode 4 (this week’s drop). Easily the best of the season and a top overall episode for me, Homelander’s “homecoming” made for great TV.

Shoresy season 3 is now on US Hulu, 6 episodes so knocked it out in two days.

More Canadian hockey humor that does not disappoint especially if you enjoyed S1&2 or the Letterkenny series.

Ben Mendelsohn was good as this character as well.

Your Honor on Netflix is good. About half way through the series.

Skip season 8

Whatever you do, do not watch S08 !!!

Your Honor is on Paramount+ too. I just watched episode one and will give it a try. Only two seasons and unlikely to be continued so not too much of a time commitment.

Shame, cause there's definitely more content to explore.
