    Don't follow this thread but really liked The Trip, a Norwegian Fargo but darker and more bloody but still funny bits

    Agreed, rating it one less thumb up. Pretty sure lack of her magic is punitive for this tragic lack in in S2

    Binged "Archive 81" yesterday almost by accident. It sucked me in and was rather creepy. I'm sure there are a lot of plot holes, but it was a fun watch.

    I watched a documentary " the Sparks Brothers " last night

    I'm not the most woke music aficionado but I am just suprised I had never heard of these guys

    I almost thot this was a parody or joke at some point .

    which was probably the idea

    I have this in my queue.
    Missed it during its short theatrical run.
    Directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Baby Driver).

    Sparks are like the most famous non-famous band of all time. Huge cult following. Very popular overseas (Europe).
    I had a buddy in college who loved them. I was deep into rap and prog rock at the time, so dismissed them. They definitely epitomize "art rock."
    They wrote the score for Annette, the weird and wonderful rock opera streaming over on Prime.
    Gonna have to peep this doc soon (and before it leaves NF).

    I agree when they jump to grown-ups, the story really ramped up. The emotion and intensity of the characters was impressive. Very well rendered animation and voice acting. The final 15 minutes was a gut punch.

    I gave Arcane the bozack months ago.
    I turned off Ep 1 after 3-minutes.
    I found the animation to be bland.
    And I have strong, pleasantly nostalgic memories of Speed Racer, too...

    Dookey, stick with it. It is worth it. The first three minutes doesn't encapsulate the show.

    Can't really be critical of your reaction - it took me several bouts of I'm-bored-let's-see-if-it's-gotten-an--better restarts, but the Speed Racer thing ......?? Nu-uh.

    Aziz Ansari: Nightclub Comedian is a pretty timely set.

    Finished Ozark 4 last night, still haven't decided if there's actually a likeable character in that show. Ruth maybe

    yeah ^^ i had never heard of Sparks in their 50 yr career cuz they just kept missing the mark when it come to runaway fame,

    I in fact wondered if this movie was a joke ?

    I recognised all the bands who the filmmaker interviewed about the Sparks but not the Sparks WTF ?

    In real life they seem pretty normal/ really nice guys, no drug dependancy & their road crews like them

    It was good. Super creepy. Took a couple episodes to get good. Then got weird weird weird. Last episode mind of had a lackluster ending though.

    As others noted, the final scene was kind of awesome. Not just for the obvious reasons, but because (SPOILER I guess) the human survival pod seems to have been packed with mostly old people (and looked to me like twice as many men as women, nearly all white), thus, basically, tech exec weirdo guy's cronies wanting to live longer, and not at all prioritizing the success of the species (not that it appears they're going to last more than a day or two in any case).

    This movie simultaneously made me laugh, furious, depressed and anxious.

    I did enjoy the tech weirdo being a combination of all the worst characteristics of Bezos, Musk, Zuckerburg, Theil, etc, cynically extracting wealth with fantastically complicated, poorly implemented solutions while simultaneously planning for their own escape from the hellscape they created (Musk to Mars, the rest to New Zealand https://video.vice.com/en_us/video/h...40775b415af4bf).

    " The green book " is recommended,

    In the 60's the green book was a book for black people that told them where they could find accommodations in the deep south

    Malice in the Palace. Story of the Pacers v Pistons brawl in 2004. As a Pacer fan that was watching the game when it happened it was good to hear the guys talk about it.

    That team was stacked to get a Reggie a ring and got derailed that night.

    Great series. They calmed down the relentless plot twists after s1 and it really got better and better. Could have easily enjoyed a couple more seasons of that. Shetland is a good detective show as well but donít think itís on NF anymore
