    I did watch Westworld. I really liked it. But I thought the big mid-season reveal was pretty fucking obvious. I called it in episode 2.

    My daughter and I have been watching Stranger Things together. Pretty good. I hear that OA is really good too. I started the first episode about a week or so and thought the first 1/2 hour was pretty formulaic, so I dropped it. But people have been raving since then, so once we are done with Stranger Things I am sure that Binx and I will watch OA next.

    I watched the first few Iron Fist episodes too. Those Marvel/Netflix shows are pretty damn good.

    Hulu has released the first episodes of a series based on Margaret Atwood's The handmaids tale and I think it is freaking awesome! I have read the book over thirty years ago and am almost desperate to read it again just because of these series. This is a need to watch series!

    I recently watched Twin Peaks. What a bunch of nonsense. I hope new series explains some of that shit.

    Totally agree. I have seen the first two episodes and thought they were really well done. So far they have done a fantastic job of capturing Offred's submission to power and her very subtle deviancy. The movie from the 90's was a bit more revolutionary in tone than the book was, though it was well done too. makes me want to reread also.

    any idea when more episodes are getting put up? I was hoping they would just throw it all up there for a binge-fest, but no such luck.
