have you seen The Office, or New Girl? if not you should add them to your list, shitloads of episodes and high rewatchability. really good dumb comedy. same as Brooklyn 99.
from what I remember The Mindy Project was a good watch as well.
agree withe attention span thing 100% I've had the office on repeat, my adhd wont tolerate much else.

Just binged watched The Society on netflix and it’s not a good show i tend to hate teen drama and those types of shows but it was actually very entertaining and the show actually made me feel for the characters? Which normally happens with really good shows like game of thrones and such, i would def recommend it. The second season of The Rain also just came out which is also a show i’d highly recommend.
I watched it too! I usually hate teen dramas (still hate-watch riverdale tho, while pulling my hair out of cringe at each episode) but I really enjoy post-apocalyptic and "kids on their own" type of shows.
Tried to watch The Rain but I found the acting so bad and that one main girl thats supposed to be a teenager looked like she was played by a 30 year old actress.
the only historical jdrama i have ever watched was ooku the inner chambers. it's based on a manga
the synopsis: The plot follows an alternate history of early modern Japan in which an unknown disease kills most of the male population, leading to a matriarchal society in which the Ōoku becomes a harem of men serving the now female shōgun.
there's also an earlier movie version that follows a different arc/main character and shogun.
Nobunaga Concerto is a historical j-drama.
Synopsis: A boy from our modern day ends up in a time slip to feudal Japan. He swaps places with the real Nobunaga.
It’s good if you don’t know much about Japanese history. The protagonist has no clue either so you learn with him. Also Oguri Shun is an iconic actor so that’s a plus.
just curious, did you enjoy Bandersnatch ?
also who here watched The OA and has similar stuff to reccomend ? I loved that shit.

Thank you so much for mentioning this. I've just finished the first episode and I'm already going to binge on the second and third one.
It's so well done. From the people on the top trying to downplay the damage at the expense of innocent common folk, to the claustrophobic halls and pathways within the plant. The acting is great, the gloomy setting, the story.
Also, I'm sort of excited for the newest and last season of Mr. Robot. I know it's a meme by this point but I like it regardless.
Then there's also The Terror but I haven't got to watching it yet.
If anyone has some similar shows to recommend, please do.

Netflix monthly choices
A girl is gang raped in a bus based in a real story it follows the police officers dealing with the case
Korean drama about the life of people before and after becoming police officers dealing with drugs prostitution and corruption
BBC dark comedy about a man getting over his wife’s death 10/10 best comedy I’ve seen this year
Dead to me
A real estate agent investigates the murder of her husband
I can’t say much else about the plot but if you are on your mid twenties is a great watch
Oh forgot to add
Dogs of Berlin
Police drama that deals with racial and political issues in a corrupt Berlin after the misterious death of a football player
A bit on the smut side but that’s expected from the director despite the compelling story
watched the 3 episodes that are currently out just now, i really liked it, very harrowing but well done. nuclear power/things gone awry has really interested me since i was a child and this was very up my alley.
very unrelated but Good Girls is also a really good series (currently season 2 is airing, renewed for season 3), it's about 3 suburban soccer moms robbing a grocery store to help their various financial struggles but they end up getting tangled up with a gang.
other series i've recently seen and enjoyed not mentioned in this thread are Dark, Killing Eve (season 2 currently airing too) and Santa Clarita Diet.
Oh man i loved the OA, i honesty cant think of anything similar. But if you haven’t seen it i recommend Dark it’s confusing and interesting like the OA and the second season is coming out soon
Is anyone excited for Euphoria on HBO? it looks really good, i don’t like zendaya as an actress but the show seems interesting.

Real love on Netflix it’s like lolcow but IRL it’s hilarious
I started watching Good Girls like today. This Rio (or whatever is his name) guy makes me nostalgic about the time I hooked up with a 19 yo brazilian guy who told me how he got his ribs broken by brazilian cops and he was also covered in tattoos.
Watching this show and the show Queen of the South really makes me crave some latino dicking, shame we dont have that here in Europe.

I started watching WHAT/IF on netflix and… its painful to watch. Besides Anna, the characters are so poorly written and one-dimensional, the acting is bad and I get that they wanna summon that neo-noir feel but it just ends up corny.
Still gonna try to finnish it though because I wanna know what happens kek.
most streaming sites are shit.
sorry to hear about your internet connection, I wish I knew some decent sites.
I haven't used Popcorn Time in a long time but even with a shit internet connection, I had no problems watching a 2h movie on it, so maybe try that?

Thanks anons, I was able to get one to work! I’m going to try to catch up for tonight’s episode.
Halfway into the third episode I just had to pause it and explain who nemu was to the person I watched it with, because even though it's amazing the comment by >>32898
was rattling around in my head so much I could barely concentrate.
Curse you op
what are your opinions on Campbell and Elle ? Im so sad they turned him into an abusive
psycho, they could have been such a power couple.
All those dead puppers :(

for u, my fellow Chernobyl gals
kek, noice >>33673
Me too.That scene with the cute doggo who was just happy to see the young soldier and he had to shoot him, the sound of the dog whimpering was too much. I had to take a long pause.
Apparently, I'm a filthy normie for feeling sorry during the ep4. There were lots of comments on how the story with those three soldiers dragged on for too long and the scene in the village was just a cheap emotional stunt, but I thought it was a nice reminder that the victims
were not only human.Also, those 90 seconds were so well done. It was a real cinematic experience.
I'm looking forward to the fifth episode but at the same time, I'm sad that it's going to be the last one.

I really liked One Day At A Time on Netflix until they started the whole non-binary shit with Elena's girlfriend. It got cancelled anyway. Is there anything similar with a 'female run household' kind of sitcom? I liked seeing the non-nuclear family.

I really like the new Spike Lee "She's Gotta Have it"! The constant sex-posi libfem bullshit was annoying and Nola Darling just seems to be a fantasy of the ideal girl Spike Lee would like to fuck but the directing was amazing!
I think the second series was much less cringe than the first.
It's ok junk television for when I want to turn my brain off, even if sometimes it smacks you in the face with heavy topics. I wish it would just stick to the lighter topics.
How on Earth does it even have a second season? The book ended ambiguously and the TV show should have stayed a miniseries.
Straying away from the source material never ends well, GoT season 8 is proof of that
Anyways, what i wanted to say is that all this woke-episode stuff feels really forced and awkward to me… Writers need to learn to do their stuff.
I like vaguely dystopian tech stuff. My favourite shows are probably Mr.Robot and Person of Interest.
I forgot Black Mirror even existed until I heard about Miley Cyrus covering a Nine Inch Nails song in one of the new episodes. As an avid NIN fan I got a hearty chuckle, thinking it would be utter shit, but I actually enjoyed the parody with the lyrical change. I thought about watching just that episode, but from what you've said seeing as it's a newer one, I might not enjoy it at all.
Well, I think I'll bite the bullet eventually.
It's been on a decline since the first season ended. June should have been put on the wall by now, but then there would be no show and no more money.>>34594
Totally agree. That's why I stopped watching GoT in season 4 or something lmao
I am actually learning to code! Started a week ago so like…its too early to say anything but I've been working/studying every single day for a couple hours (learning Python) and the summer's here so I'm hopefull!
Still don't know how that will make me find a cute introvert hacker boy untouched by chan culture but one can always dream…
Eh, that's what I expected tbh… It's pretty sad but tbh even if there magically was a decent hackerzboi out there I probably wouldnt be his type at all.
I wish these were the 90's. No trannies, no 4chan, porn culture wasnt so prevalent and I'd be more likely to be some hackerzboi's type. eh..
On the subject of women and hackers, I'm on episode 3 of Mr.Robot and while I love the show, all the female characters are so poorly written. They all need some kind of saving, they all "keep chosing aweful men", they're one-dimensional… Except that hacker chick who is supposed to be portrayed as batshit crazy and incredibly annoying.
I wish that one day I meet my programming gf so it's comforting to see that you exist.
A lot of times in the news, what was called a woman was in fact a troon who's a programmer. Women in tech exist but they're still rare to find, let alone (actual) lesbians.
File: 1560328046509.png (143.27 KB, 300x499, PQ2_Futaba_Sakura.png)
Omg filthy code gives me hives, maybe we could make a thread or even discord for woman coding, the type that wouldn't accept troons. I would really be interested in getting to know some more woman in coding.
Please please if anyone makes one let us know!
On another subject, I follow a blogger who posts a lot about reality tv and reality tv never appealed to me so I never watched any of it. However, the wild shit she mentions makes me curious because it just sounds so wild?
Anyways is Vanderpump Rules worth giving a look if you're usually not into that sort of stuff?
It was one of those shows that is just so over the top and nasty but you just have to know how the plot is going to work out so I kept watching. Also Sax is just my dame oyaji type.
Quite the ride, too bad SyFy canceled it.
I will give a shot in making it then later when im at home
Never done one so might not be perfect

This show is absolutely horrifying and triggering. The people praising only seemed to concerned with Zendaya, the composition, and how "realistic" everything is. Well, nope, nothing besides the aspect of anxiety is realistic. Everything else - drugs, sex, infidelity, transgenderism, porn, etc, etc - is just glorified.
Sam Levinson and Drake thought just bc they copped Zendaya that they did something with this. TLDR: I don't recommend watching this unless your tuning in for a good shock factor.

Before it came out I heard people being hyped and saying "See Riverdale, this is how teen shows are done".
Now that it's out, I've heard it's way worse than Riverdale.
File: 1560791686610.jpeg (16.06 KB, 360x223, D8RJRNGXUAAk7c3.jpeg)
Yeah it's pretty depressing, depending on how you look at it. Zendaya's character, Rue, talks of how she became a druggie. There are situations of rape and the characters are all so…stupid. Just think of all the horrible shit you can think of crammed into one episode.

>>36241>barely 2 minutes in
psych diagnosing what looks to be a 5 year old with signs of ocd, adhd, generalised anxiety disorder, and bipolar
what the fuck lmao
I'm not going to watch Euphoria because it seems pretty bad but I've read the lipstick alley thread about the first episode and I've read about one scene in an upcoming episode with 30 dicks on screen, is this a meme or a dumb rumor?>>36293
lmfao does her parents have Munchhausen by proxy and went doctor shopping for her? That would make an interesting plot point tbh.
The writer doesn't understand the hate for Skyler either. I think its the viewer's fault for sympathizing way too much with Walt.
Don't date a man who hates Skyler White, it's an obvious sign he's a sexist piece of shit.
I really loved BB when I first watched it, but after recently re-watching it I just couldn't enjoy it like I used to. The show is always trying to show Walter being cool and a bad ass when really he is an abusive
loser going through a mid life crisis who would rather put his family's lives in danger than admit he needs help. It's such a male power fantasy show, that I just can't enjoy it anymore. BCS is better at making you sympathize with the characters but it's waay more boring.
>>36898>his wife was potrayed (annoying, needy)
Never came across like that to me. I think people who hate her are just too stupid/inattentive to comprehend the theme of the show.>>36922>The show is always trying to show Walter being cool and a bad ass when really he is an abusive loser going through a mid life crisis who would rather put his family's lives in danger than admit he needs help.
I mean he did do some cool stuff every now and then but the show was pretty clear that he was the latter. Walt explicity said so in the finale.
I'm more annoyed at some of Jessie's story arcs and those episodes where half the runtime is just spent on him getting high and messing around in his house. His moral alignment also seems to adjust to whereever is convenient for the plot at the time.
I stopped watching it like the episode poussey died
bc it made me so sad and I couldn't imagine watching it on without her. like lbr no one cared for piper lol. do tell us if it's good though, might pick it up then, really miss the early seasons!
anyone here watching the new season of Dark? I found it bit hard to follow at first bc of how long ago I watched the 1st season and how complicated keeping track of timelines is kek but I really liked it! I know people compare it to stranger things but imo it's better. can't wait for the 3rd season, really looking forward to the resolutions!
File: 1561794437133.jpg (68.48 KB, 930x574, 66296291.jpg)
Yes! I really enjoyed season 5 and thought the whole prison riot was very thrilling. Season 6 seemed more like a filler with its new characters and premise, but it was fun nevertheless. I think this final season will have lots of fan service and give us closure for all the characters we love. I am excited!

Does anybody actually watch Lucifer?
I really liked the source material, but I read it a long time ago.
Judging by how many seasons it got, people must enjoy it, but looking at the screenshots it just seems kinda shitty to me? Maybe it's due to the fact that they picked such an ugly actor to play Lucifer. He looks nothing alike as well.
I tend to enjoy most DC/Vertigo content though so I would probably eventually get around to checking it out.
But I want to know your opinion. Is it even remotely good?
File: 1562019758538.gif (626.02 KB, 500x281, unit02.gif)
second this, I'm hesitant to watch. I actually liked the original dub.
It's nothing at all like the comics.
But it's fun if you like crime solving shows with interesting casts that interact well.
File: 1562105567053.png (149.62 KB, 277x738, NRvwkI1.png)
you say this like the majority of lolcow won't turn out to be horny moms that watch shitty media to get their fix
OML I just skipped through the entire episode, and watched important bits. Dunno why ppl are saying this show is groundbreaking. Sure, it's entertaining, but it really is corny as hell.
Anyways, I will no longer be watching bc Hunter Schafer confirmed that his character and Zendaya's are going to have a romantic arc, since his character doesn't know what a healthy relationship is. Z's character is a druggie, tf you mean y'all are gonna be healthy together??
Not only that, it's apparent that the other female characters seem to only care about men, appearances, and sex. This show was clearly written by a man.
Hard disagree. I love Robin and Alexei (it was a crime that not only he got murdered, fucking Hopper didn't even let him watch his goddamn Looney Tunes in peace
), but it doesn't change the fact that this season is unnecessary. The TV series should have ended after the first or second one. How many times monsters from the other side can attack Hawkins? It felt stale by the time I started watching the third season. The second one wrapped things up perfectly while leaving it up for the viewer's imaginations how will the future of everyone go. Also the decision to make Hopper sacrifice himself (or rather go MIA as I don't believe he's dead - that's an obvious sequel bait) after a whole season of him acting like a total douchebag was an incredibly poor choice.
I liked Hopper in the previous seasons, but in this one he was constantly screaming at people and became a rather unpleasant character to spend time with
Don't get me wrong, it's not bad (like GoT season 8 kek), but unnecessary.
Unfortunately, it's been renewed
for a new season only bc Zendaya's audience is carrying it.
I feel bad for Lexi and Fez. The only people who make sense in this show. Fez is dealing drugs for his sick family member and doesn't support Rue's addiction, and Lexi who sees right through Rue's shit and just wants her friend back.
Also, about the season 3, I loved seeing Steve in that sailor costume the entire time. rofl Killing Hop was a bold move, but i didnt mind it. My issue is the scenes after the credits. it's obvious they are going for a season 4?? WHY? it's so played out already. i was really hoping it would end in season 3, but they are dragging it out and making me hate the show.
Alexei is so cute. Lucas' sister Erika was the worst addition to season 3. she was annoying in every single scene she was in
Same here for the sailor costume. When I saw it in the trailers I was like "Why is Steve wearing a weeb uniform?" lmao.
I didn't mind Erica, after she warmed up to the group.

If you enjoyed Dark (despite reeling from S2's finale, that show really took a nosedive into its own mythos this year) you might get on with other German or Scandi series, there's something about their culture that means there's a lot less focus on how attractive actors are in TV and more on strongly written characters and expressing emotions in a subdued, natural way. There was a third adaptation of the book Perfume (Parfum) into a miniseries that was really good from last year that fits this kinda mould. It's on Netflix.

Sage for samefagging, but Casa del Papel is apparently back for a 3rd series for no legitimate reason and I can just tell it's going to be shit. They never needed a third season, everything was neatly wrapped up at the end of Part 2, and this is just a flagrant excuse by Netflix and whatever Spanish TV company to make more big bucks off flashing Ursula Corbero's admittedly impressive asscheeks. Reeeee
Anon, you watch the new season of Its Always Sunny?
Kinda… bad mostly imo. Just them getting older. But the season finale “Mac finds his pride” was actually incredibly beautiful and moving, which surprised the hell out of me. Worth it just for that.

I don’t think it’s been discussed here but Los Espookys is so visually stunning and a really fun watch, it’s also really short i definitely recommend it for people with odd senses of humor. I thought this show was really original in a lot of aspects, and the way they were combined.
I watched that show while it was being aired. The first seasons are really interesting and pull you in, but the plot gets weird & messy after a while. The end of the show was extremely disappointing for me, left a lot of questions unanswered and just all around wasn't satisfying. If I could get my time back that I spent watching it, I would.
But some people still like it and recommend it. So do what you will.

I don't know how I feel about the ending of OITNB. Not a fan of Pipes with Alex, especially after they made moving on and life after prison such a huge deal. I also wanted to see more justice for the women but I guess the reality is that prison sucks so the writers went with the more realistic approach to the finale.
I just finished watching Dark Shadows (free on Amazon if you have prime) and it was great background noise while I worked. It's very slowly paced but every once in a while, the story takes a turn out of left field that's crazy fun. It was shot live, so there are a ton of mistakes recorded for posterity which I'm sure the actors were totally thrilled about. It's also fun to look at the real fashions and hairstyles of the late sixties onward.
Because of that, I fell down a rabbit hole of old soap operas and found a channel that has all the episodes of a show called Port Charles. Like Dark Shadows, they were sort of bumbling along until they decided to add vampires. Needless to say, if you care about serious story, this is not the show for you.
It's either really good or really, really bad, but it's much more fun than Dark Shadows and so far I'm loving it. You can jump in at the first 'book' Tainted Love (they stole the idea of short arcs from telenovelas) which is where the craziness begins. Don't worry about characters or backstory, you'll pick it all up quickly.
If you like ghosts and vampire slayers (seriously) and magic candles and angels and all kinds of other loony in serial form, take a look, you might like it!

I'm rewatching Bad Girls Club for the first time since it aired in like 2006. I'm about to start season 5.
Anyone else watch? I think I only ever saw up to the 4th season or so. I hear the new seasons suck bc it's just girls getting jumped constantly. It's way more entertaining when the girls can at least tolerate one another. Season 4 kinda sucked bc everyone was miserable the whole time.
I love watching this trash while I sew bc you don't need to pay any attention to the "plot" lol

Binged The Boys in three days flat. Pls talk to me about it farmers bc I feel like it’s all neckbeards and edgelords who like it lmao
Edgy shit, I'm pissed Amazon canceled the Tick for this.
Can't have fun happy superheroes, it's gotta be dark and contrary.
I caned it all in a day. I could feel my radfem side getting simultaneously annoyed and yet pleased that every character in it is universally an asshole, especially the men. Then again, considering the source was written by Ennis I'm not surprised. I wonder if this trend towards "gritty" comic book adaptations means one of the big streaming services will option some of the more subversive stuff, like The Filth or even Transmet. As long as they don't do to it what they did to Watchmen.
Except now that I think about it, they absolutely would, and I don't think I could cope with Ryan fucking Reynolds getting cast as Spider or something.
My complaint is that they tried to make the head-pusher sympathetic. His gill-rape and subsequent meltdown were delicious!
Fuck that guy.

Anyone checked out Glow on Netflix? Season 3 dropped eariler this month, but I'm already hoping it doesn't fall victim to Netflix's 3 season cancellation.
It's based on GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling). They heavily based the chacracters from the real-life show but it focuses more on the production rather than the wrestling.
There are a lot of characters but it does a good job of giving each of them a bit of development throughout the season. l also apercaite the interactions between the some of the characters you wouldn't expect to make connections. A lot of times shows with huge cast only focus on the same few characters interacting with the same groups together so I love when there's some unexpected kinship between them. the main character may be the worst one but I'm watching for everyone else
If you're a fan of 80's shit, training montages and majority female cast with some light drama, I'd recommend it. Also the documentary on the real-life show for context.
