    Tower

    Well done documentary about the Charles Whitman shooting at the UT tower in 1966.



    Win It All

    A slow paced, painful movie. I mean that as a compliment. It was enjoyable.

    Finally watched Iron Fist. I thought it was pretty good though maybe the weakest of the Marvel shows so far on Netflix. I almost expected it to suck from reading some of the review tidbits when the series was first released.

    Looking forward to the Defenders.

    Just finished season 1 and started season 2 of Better Call Saul. I've enjoyed this series more than I thought I would. Watched Fortitude on Amazon before that and loved it. It's a Norwegian psycho thriller with polar bears, mammoths, flesh eating wasps and a really cool story line. Season 2 is about to start up.

    This is one of the greatest shows, ever. In my top ten. The casting was superb, the acting on a whole other level. Aidan Young, Abigail Spencer, and (particularly) Claine Crawford were robbed of Emmys (as is such) being aired on a low profile channel (Sundance).

    Just a remarkable, incredibly well-written, well-directed, and well-acted series. There's very, very few of these gems. And it has an American Gothic vibe to it.

    The creator, Ray McKinnon, is a savant. Many will remember him from Deadwood (HBO western) as the priest who developed epilepsy.

    Better call saul is just so good but in a weird way.
    Kind of a slow burn kind of story lines where you are not bored while watching but many times there is not much going on.
    Just great writing and acting.

    Next season of FARGO should be coming on soon. First two seasons were great...done kind of like Better Call Saul where it is kind of slow but just a great show.

    Fargo is absolutely amazing, BP. So stoked for the new season.

    BCS is a fun show, and I think it's really gonna start to pick up its momentum starting this upcoming season.

    Rome
    Boardwalk Empire
    Banshee
    Six Feet Under
    Magic City
    Westworld
    Shameless

    Many of these are not on Netflix, but they're all re-watchable, much like Breaking Bad, Dexter, Game of Thrones, etc.

    Two more episodes to watch of Hotel Beau Sejour. Pretty good so far. Past few episodes have been getting more interesting.

    Louis CK Stand Up Special

    Big fan but didn't think this was his best material. 7/10

    Chapelle Stand Up Special

    Seems to be almost too humbled tbh (lacks same swag/confidence), still love em (DC homebread) but nowhere where he was before his hiatus. 8/10

    I would just like to thank the person that told me to give it a shot(I'll try and go back in this thread and find him). I'm hooked on Netflix now, thank you :)

    Two episodes left of The Keepers. This is really good, like The Jinx (HBO) good.

    @MichaelWinicki, as a true crimes buff, I believe you'd thoroughly enjoy this. It has some moments that are hard to get through, some very disturbing stuff, but it's amazing.

    Also watched The Look of Silence. Simply put, a masterpiece. Better than Oppenheimer's surreal and disturbing (and phenomenal) The Act of Killing.

    I don't have Netflix but I've followed the story– And it's horrible on so many levels.

    It's beyond horrible. These poor women. And Cathy.

    This is lights out, an incredible documentary. Netflix is raising their game.

    I've been on a week and a half excursion to root out well-made documentaries, and this is up there. The Seven Five was also riveting, among many others I've watched, spanning multiple channels/sources

    All the deaths (except Whitman's) were a tragic loss, but the two that bother me the most is the older female receptionist who Whitman clubbed to death with the butt of his rifle... And his wife who he stabbed while she was sleeping– by most accounts she was a very nice gal who deserved far better than him.
