    Sort of like Dallas, but way better.
    Kevin Costner plays John Dutton, owner of the largest ranch in Montana. Indians, California land developers, and casino regulators are all about trying to take him, his family, and ranch kingdom down. Filmed in UT and MT, it has a very authentic western cowboy feel. Lots of horse riding, cattle roping, drunk cowboy fights, murder, mayhem. There is also naked women and sex in the mix.
    Good story telling and acting. Although, the Dutton family is just as corrupt and criminal as their adversaries, you want them to succeed in the fight to survive.
    Enjoyable show! With Taylor Sheridan writing, there is a little Sons of Anarchy feel to it. I wish it was easier to stream.

    If anybody here speaks Russian and could tell me what the hell is going on, that would be great. Haha. Looks interesting either way, though.
    Just finished this on Netflix. Itís been dubbed in English. Itís definitely not a version of Humans like I thought it would be.

    Russian guy that runs a sex robot factory gets his hands on a new Chinese model that has better awareness programming. Although it is not really autonomous, she kills someone and runs off to hide. She befriends a family that she encodes herself to. Evil robot corp eventually finds her and tries to sell the idea of using this new upgrade robot to replace all workers over 45 years old with early retirement bonus program.

    Thereís all kinds of side stories: cops, anarchists, divorce, mother with robot child......

    Itís 16 episodes, longer than typical Netflix offering. Although there is plenty of language and violence, there is scant sex scenes, and absolutely no nudity.

    Just finished S2 of Mindhunter. 4/5 It's going to take forever to finish telling the BTK part of the story though. Maybe it's a plan to try and keep getting new seasons so they can continue.

    Short series (3 episodes) on PBS Masterpiece called ďMrs WilsonĒ. Very good. If you like LeCarre spy stories, it is kinda like that, only different.

    Just got around to finishing season three of "Stranger Things." A bit convoluted and slow at first, but it picks up and finishes nicely.

    it's worth a watch if you dig Steam Punk, Middle Fantasy (I found that the story was sandwiched between Low Fantasy tropes and High Fantasy tropes), and don't mind some soap opery elements.
    Well cast, well acted, and a solid production value add a lot to the mix.

    It's like Narnia meets Deadwood...

    Not sure how far i'm into it, but had to give it a rest, and not sure i'l finish. First few episodes drew me in, but they're not keeping me interested enough to want to keep going.

    Disappointed. Not enough laughs or cringes.

    i got suckered into American Horror Story Apocalypse. I love a good end-of-the-world story but I'm pretty annoyed that it turned into True Blood v2 after a couple of episodes. I keep watching because the acting is really good and it's interesting to see the actors switch between different roles. Oh yeah, and a cringy cameo by Stevie Nicks!
