    I think it’s still worth watching it the whole way. You’ll appreciate him that much more. There’s another spinoff about Jesse as well. We enjoyed that, too.

    This. There are parts of BCS you'll never understand or fully appreciate without having watched all of BB.

    Just finished season 2 of Summertime. It was underwhelming at best

    Lost in Space, both the old (on Hulu)and new series the robot in the original can be pretty funny sometimes

    This Quebecois zombie flick is the antithesis to Army of the Dead.
    Treading between folk horror, environmental horror, and Romero's seminal work, it is a disarmingly quiet and brooding endeavor that succeeds due to its slow-burn pace, enigmatic elements, and skewed deadpan humor.

    Be sure to sit through the credits, too.
    There is a bugged-out post-credit scene...

    I really enjoyed it, so beautifully shot. Thanks for the heads up on the post credits scene, although I’ll admit it left me with even more questions. Keep em coming!

    I just discovered that this underrated and overlooked sci-fi flick is on NF

    Prospect

    I stumbled upon this little gem back in 2018 playing at a theater in Elk Grove (2 hour drive from my house). Yes, it was worth the drive.
    Of note as it features Pedro Pascal pre-Madolorian. Beyond that, it's worth a watch if you are into low-key, well-acted, well-scripted, low-budget sci-fi.
    It has a very distinct, classic Western vibe mixed with a bit of coming-of-age elements.
    I'd actually read about the film in a 2017 article about short films that were being turned into feature length films. In this case the director/screenwriting duo made a short film and then based on that got financing to turn it into a feature.
    They did a solid job of expanding and fleshing out the mythos they created in the short.

    I keep getting sucked into The Magicians. Is this a problem?

    Not from my point of view. I watched the entire series. Twice.

    This is a taut little sleeper sci-fi thriller which is excellently paced, nicely directed, and contains just the right amount of tension and uncertainty, keeping one enthralled and guessing the outcome; I kinda figured out the "twist" early on, but I was just enough off that it was still somewhat surprising and no less effective in its reveal.

    Agreed; this was one of those critically well reviewed but audience meh'd flicks that I thought most audience viewers were watching a different movie, based on their comments. Unusual in this regard, as usually with such movies where the audience is significantly less enthusiastic, I tend to side with the audience.

    I thought Sandy’s ex was kind of filling the Norman slot. Similar banter with MD, obviously different but she grew on me and it worked.

    Ending of season 3 was like, um. That’s it?

    The OA - written about before /can't find, but the "movements" are pretty fuckt.

    Otherwise a very interesting story and well done (on season 2 episode 2).

    I thought I was the only one here that liked that show. Sure, it requires you to overlook a few glaring holes in the plot, but you know it’s sci-fi, so that’s to be expected. Well done series, and definitely some twists and turns I wasn’t expecting.
