What Are You Watching?
« on: October 21, 2016, 03:57:07 PM »
Right, I was holding off' making a general thread of this, but with Westworld and now Black Mirror hitting my screen at high velocity, I just have to ask:

What are you guys watching? What do you love? Hate? Recommend?

I haven't started this new season of Black Mirror yet, but if you fair American folks haven't seen any of it, I can't recommend it highly enough. It's this generation's Twilight Zone, only more alarmingly prescient and relatable. People comparing 'The Waldo Moment' to the rise of Trump aren't far off the mark.

My personal recommendations would be (in no particular order):

* The National Anthem
* White Bear
* The Waldo Moment
* Be Right Back
* 15,000,000 Merits

They're all self-contained short films, designed for snacking on rather than binging.

Oh, and make sure you have someone nearby to hug and/or talk to after watching. It can get...intense.
Oi.

I would recommend The National Anthem as an episode that is not your first.  I'm not gonna say it's darker than the others but it's definitely a different vibe of unnerving and not a great precedent for what the series is.

I've been delighted by Santa Clarita Diet. It's really surprisingly charming and funny. It's certainly brought out my stupid giggle. Haven't finished watching it, but would recommend so far!

AND I've been catching up on Hannibal, and I know, old news but HOLY CRAP i love this show. The aesthetics.......uuuugh

Troll Hunters, Archer, and trying to catch up on Star Vs Evil Season 2


Troll Hunters is a weird but enjoyable one. It's a little tropey, but with fun enough characters and concepts that it ends up fresh again

I'm currently in the middle of watching Altered Carbon. Anyone following this show? It's pretty interesting.

Altered Carbon!

Yeah, I'm following the show. I want to binge it, just don't have the time.
