Oh my gods, you're in for a TREAT!

IT CROWD is one of my all time fave shows, ever. The first episode or two are a bit stumbly as the show finds its feet and who everyone is...but after that it's glorious through all 4 seasons and the special from 2013.

Best episodes are S2E01 - THE WORK OUTING and S2E04 - THE DINNER PARTY. Those two episodes never fail to make me howl with laughter. There is a gag that is set up throughout WORK OUTING that comes to fruition late in the episode better than any other comedy setup in a half hour comedy show I've ever seen.

Sidebar, if you can find COUPLING (UK version, they tried to remake it in the US and it failed hard) as well, the first 3 seasons of that are stunningly hilarious comedy too.

Oh gods! The IT Crowd is the bees knees. Do not sip your favorite beverage while viewing, you'll be in that awkward zone, many times, of liquid shooting out your nose due to uncontrollable laughter.

Sorry! But I know tons of people who've never even heard of, let alone seen, either. So when I see/hear someone say they seem to appreciate British humor, I'm going to lobby for my fav.

Is there a better comedic duo then Roy and Maurice on the IT Crowd? You can probably go back a long way and name a duo, but damn, you'd be hard pressed to name a duo as funny as them when looking only 20,30 years back. Also Denholm Reynholm didn't even need to say anything, just walking onto a scene or appearing in a scene got me to laughing.

Oh man the season finale that I didnít even know was the finale of Blue Bloods S10 opened new doors for the show. Season was only 19 eps instead of the standard 22. Iím not sure if this was on purpose or due to Leonard dying leaving them in a production hole. The Ep didnít feel like a finale thatís for sure. Iím nervous there will be no S11 with his death. Hopefully they can sort it out and run for another few seasons.

Holy shit Too Hot To Handle Ep 1 was on fiah. I ll be legit surprised if anyone of these people make it off the show with any $. The pheromones were spewing for 12 hrs before Lhana dropped the no sex rule to. Iím excited to see these people utterly fail. $ seems like it will be deducted for each violation of the rule. No petting, kissing, fucking, oral, anal or rubbing one out for 4 weeks. Yikes! These people are in for a brutal time resisting nature.

Canít wait to see how this goes down! Thank you Netflix!

Been watching Albert Lin's Nat Geo stuff on D+ and its REALLY solidly fantastic! He's a super compelling host, and the shows are done in an absolutely gorgeously produced way.

Watching the episode where he tries to put science and archeology to the Biblical story of Exodus....and goddamit if he didn't do it. Little things like the "Red Sea" being a mistranslation from "Reed Sea", and a place called Lake Manzala being the actual crossing place...a lake with evidence of wind shifting the water out of the lake...and instead of the Israelites going all the way south and crossing the 30miles (impossible) across Red Sea...they took a direct route long the Mediterranean and crossed a lake that disappeared under strong winds...and lake returning after the wind stopped and possibly destroying Pharoah's forces.

I'm not religious. Like not even a little bit, but I think there is tonnes of real history in the bible just obscured behind embellishment, legends, and mistranslation/misunderstanding.

Anyways, his normal show is just "lost cities", but the bible one is worth watching as it's its own special.

Really getting a kick out of the Nat Geo category on D+...the kids love the animal/nature stuff there too.

Finished Ep 1. That was beyond fucking ridiculous. I will maybe try again at some point to continue but Iím in no hurry. That was so full of stupid i felt compelled to finish just to see how much worse it would get.

Iím also more then a little upset at them for not embracing the accent of that area. That Ep was so shit having that funky accent to laugh at would have been a huge plus.

OUTER BANKS on Netflix. Fuck me...binged it in two days. FANTASTIC show. Starts out like Dawson’s Creek meets Clive Cussler, and then goes utterly batshit insane and entirely unpredictable in the best ways around episode 4 or 5...soooo good.

Just a blast. Can’t wait for season 2!


Just glanced at an ad and it looks like they gave DAWSON the RIVERDALE treatment.


Can't quite give it full marks for unpredictable, but 8 eps in and it IS fun coming off HOMELAND and WESTWORLD heaviness. Tnx for the reco.
