    Watched this last night and also noticed the hat!

    Pretty incredible the similarities between Elizabeth Holmes of Theranos and Billy McFarland of Fyre. Both more or less had a good idea and thought that was enough--somehow everything would just work out. Both had an amazing amount of hubris and the will to lie relentlessly even when it should have been clear they were dead in the water. I'm gonna go with McFarland as the overall bigger douchebag, though.

    Season 2 of “The Rain” is out. Starts out pretty slow, then POW, here we go...

    The really shitty overdubs are a distraction (are all the female characters voiced by the same actress?), and I suspect the dialog is so cheesy due to translations, but the story keeps me interested.

    Shades of Lost, maybe a bit of The Postman, mixed with the post-apocalyptic-movie-of-the-week.

    That reminds me...

    Cuckoo is pretty funny and manages to maintain its flow when Andy left after the first season (presumably that's when B99 started)

    It's the same kind of absurdist comedy and all the players are pretty damn funny. The first season is the best tho because Andy owns that schtick.

    I kept getting the Resident Evil vibe. Secret, evil meg-corp trying create a cure all for disease or super soldier that got out of hand and end up destroying the planet. no zombies (but maybe????). I think the story doesn't know where to go, the writers will just wing it if there is more to come.

    All American is fucking great. It’s like the Friday Night Lights meets The OC. Then former I liked, the latter I did not, but this series works!

    Yeah, I really enjoyed that. But bummed that I now have to wait (a long time) for Season 3 to drop on Netflix.

    I'm in that same boat. Might actually be the tipping point for me to get Hulu if it's still on there. Or just start up Kodi again if I can figure out the latest kluges

    2018 sequel to Das Boot is on Hulu now.

    Caught the first few episodes - it's definitely not the original but pretty damn good.

    Finished both season 1 and 2 of Dark. What a mind trip. Time travel, time loop entanglements. God Particles. People related to each other getting it on. Finding out your child is your parent. /WHOA/ Good/light vs Evil/dark trying to control the time loops (but which is which?). And a possible multiverse to deal with.

    The show is German, but is available dubbed. The dubbing isn't very good, but I couldn't watch and read translation for 16 hours. It jumps between multiple families and time periods that are 33 years apart (1953, 1986, 2019, etc). Trying to keep up which child is which teenager is which adult is which old adult and who is related to who takes intense focus. But the story is so well crafted it constantly fits together. It doesn't jump around purposely to confuse the viewer (Westworld).

    I gotta go with Holmes there. McFarland duped a bunch of rich douchebags and investors. Holmes duped people getting blood tests and a bunch of investors.

    Snake it till you make it! Sometimes I wish I had a little of that in me.

    Aziz Ansari's new special was good. Darker and definitely more real than anything he's done before. I think he's better without the silly stuff--kinda like living a year in a world of shit sobered him up, who'd have guessed? Wasn't really a big fan before but looking forward to more of his stuff now.

    Yup. It was surprisingly good and insightful.

    I've always found him funny in that awkward silly space, this latest offering had way more mature comedy, with some homages to his older stuff/style. 8.5/10.

    I'd actually put this above the last Chris Rock standup and on par with Kevin Hart's last standup.
