    How bout the German series Dark? English dub is a little rough at first, but it gets better. Season one has a lot of build up, season two is incredible.

    The train driver: US military calls up Starbuck from her retirement to command the mission.
    The train crew: The stupidest group of 27yr olds assembled for a space journey. You know they are going to run into trouble, but they never thought it would be themselves.
    The (multiple) train wrecks: Crew generally acts like a bunch of know-it-all children, and behave like children. (my wife constantly asks, "Don't they do any psychological testing of these idiots for mental fitness?") Crew mutinies and almost ends the mission before they start, wrecks ship. Crew lands on planet to scavenge for O2 and brings alien virus on board that infects crew. Crew lands on another planet in search of food / fresh water and doesn't check for any potential hostile life. Starbuck has her hands full trying to herd this menagerie of useless cats (if they don't kill her first )

    Can't wait to get through the rest of the episodes to see if these dumbshits can in anyway complete their mission.

    This is not a comedy. But, it is full of .....

    I almost escaped watching this. I had stopped watching half way through the first episode, but then a few days later continued on with it. I really wish I’d followed my first instinctual impression. But now I feel committed to finishing the season.

    OK, here’s another “spoiler”. So, apparently in the future when they are driving these spaceships around which have hallways wide enough to drive a car in, there will be a button by a door in one of those hallways where if you push the button the door will close and the spaceship will split apart at that point.

    If this seems like a dangerous feature to have, not to worry, the button is protected by a hand scanner, so only “authorized” people can split the ship in half.

    Seems like a reasonable feature to have, just in case a senior officer happens to be standing in the middle of the ship next to that door at the exact moment you crash into a moonlet off Saturn, and you have enough time to scan your hand and press the button.

    So I was reading about new shows coming to Netflix later this year and read the premise for one called "Better Than Us." Did some digging and there's not much on it. Nothing on IMDB either. Ends up that Netflix bought the rights to a Russian show called "Better Than People" and I found the original trailer. It actually looks really good! Anybody know anything about this one?

    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.

    Thanks! Sounds intriguing and maybe kind of fun. I'm in for the pilot! Hopefully it's just subtitled and not dubbed.

    Not the most well written article by a long shot, but the series the author lists all sound cool.

    Several have been mentioned here already.

    I have only seen two from the list: Fortitude (season 1 was great, 2 not so much) and Black Spot (enjoyed S1, have not seen S2 yet).

    Wire in the Blood and La Mante are good; agree on Fortitude.

    Man, I don't get how the powers that be in Hollywood expect the 99% to afford a subscription to every streaming service these days...it's getting to the point where one has to be subscribed to at least 5 services to watch all the cool stuff that's out there.

    CBS All Access is looking like they're gonna give Netflix and Amazon Prime a run for their money with these upcoming shows:

    ^Amazon Prime and whatever NBC has to offer when they get The Office is my plan. NFLX is going to need some banger shit when the NBC shows leave.

    Netflix got whacked on subscriptions on their last quarter and looks like it's going to be tough goings for them ahead
    and I wouldn't consider myself price sensitive (DINKs) but I have started questioning netflix after the recent price increases

    has anyone tried that curiosity stream? the price is right at 2.99 month/ 19.99 yr.
    thinking about cancelling cable too and taking it to full nerdville as I think this covers a lot of the random channels we tend to watch on cable

    Subscribing to 5 services isn’t more than one cable subscription.

    Is it?

    Who hasn’t cut the cable cord, really??
    focus.

    I haven't cut the cord yet based solely on jeopardy. they don't broadcast much elsewhere - although I have not rechecked in the past year or so maybe it has expanded
    it's really the only thing that keeps me on traditional cable. yes I know I have a problem

    We cut the cable a few years ago. I only miss the ability to record football games, and fast forward through commercials.

    We have netflix and Amazon. But Amazon kinda sucks.

    We will buy the Disney service when it comes out. Probably not the CBS and NBC services.

    If you're considering a subscription solely for the office, it might be time to just buy the seasons on amazon or itunes or whatever. Certainly not worth $10-$20 /month for reruns IMO.

    We have Prime, HBO, Netflix and share that with the in-laws for their Hulu password. Feels like we're covered.

    I have not had cable since 1991.
    I have Amazon, but as This End Up stated, "it kinda sucks". I have about 1000 films in my queue and I never feel like watching any of them!

    I still do NF DVD as there are quite a bit of films that the do not streathe only drawback to this service is that quite a few of the films I have in my queue obviously do not have a lot of copies, so they are always listed as "Very Long Wait and more often than not they just disappear from my queue (which leads me to believe they were never returned, got lost in the mail, or were damaged and ND doesn't feel the need to replace them).

    It is getting harder and harder to find good foreign films, old classics, and obscure genre stuff...

    Which is how it used to be pre-internet/pre-cable/pre-dvd.

    The more things change the more they stay the same.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    Yellowstone on the Paramount network.
    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.
