    Formula 1: finished the series - it's great. That's coming from someone that doesn't really follow Formula 1.

    The Dirt: as has been covered in here, the acting is bad, the writing is bad, and it's pretty cheesy. Still watched the whole thing for some reason.

    Highwaymen: solid. Nothing too crazy or particularly unexpected, but it's well done. I thought it was better than the preview led me to expect.

    “Traitors” is one of the best spy films or series I’ve watched. Right up there with Le Carre. Lots of unexpected turns. Not too implausible for the most part.

    “Highwaymen” was solid. Worth watching, even though you know how it ends.

    “The OA” season 2 is out. Not sure how I missed season 1, but after some binge watching, I’m up to speed and halfway into season 2. Addictive.

    It's very good.

    You might not want to watch the walrus scene with an 8 year old though.

    Love Death + Robots is one of the better things I've seen Netflix produce. And I say that as someone who generally avoids animated stuff. Out of the 18 episodes, I was kinda meh on 4 or 5 of them. The rest were great.

    Just finished season 2 of “The OA”. Really good. I’ll refrain from discussing it more to avoid spoilers, but worth watching, especially if you have tinnitus or have fantasies about sea creatures.

    Is The OA season 2 filled with silly interpretive dancing? I just finished season one and was all into it until episode six when the prisoners started waiving their arms and wiggling their bodies to bring a fellow prisoner back from the dead. I was, like, WTF?!?!? That was just stupid. The reasoning behind it was just so weak and outlandish. If we were offered some hint of magic, sorcery, or something to explain how/why the "movements" cure the sick and open dimensional portals, I could accept the nonsense and enjoy the ride.

    Yeah, lots of that kind of stuff. If anything, the movements become even more mechanical.

    Yeah, I stopped watching at that point, too.

    Concur. Watched it, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and Layer Cake on NF lately. Guy Ritchie films are fun, but I need subtitles to get the most out of them.

    Technically Layer Cake isn't Guy Ritchie.

    RocknRolla is another pretty swell movie by Guy Ritchey. I have it on DVD. At the end, they promise a sequel, but it has never been made. Lock Stock is probably my favorite of all of them.

    OA delivers in season 2. First season left me kinda 'Cool, but wtf?' Season 2 kicks ass.

    Quite the opposite for me. I found it similar to the mercaba meditation, the great meditation of the grand masters, so therefore, believable to a larger degree than most. But if you're not into shit like that, I could see it striking you as silly.

    The way I look at it, if there WERE a mechanism to travel between dimensions, would it be understandable to most people in this dimension? Or would it look odd, and not appear to work?

    Cool end to Season 2. Not sure where they can take Season 3, though.

    Finished season 2 of OA. My wife had a hard time keeping up. It didn't help that there is something in the presentation and pace of the show that kept putting her to sleep. I learned to accept the silly hand waiving to open portals for inter-dimensional travel. But, another WTF?!?! moment that made absolutely no sense. It was like the show creators said, "I love the idea of a giant octopus in a tank on a stage that wants to talk to the audience, how can we shove this into the show?"

    I had the same experience as your wife, I can't stay awake for a whole episode. I also gave up watching after the octopus scene.

    Ya know, after the first season, I feel like I can't trust this show to not build up to an incredibly anti climactic ending. All this sci-fi, hand waving, time travel, alternate universe shit, only to have it come down to a strange, but disappointingly realistic ending where nothing really that cool happens.

    Love me some OA! Season 2 was just as weird as season 1. The Octopus was super dumb but so is the fucking dance! Very entertaining stuff imho.

    Netflix: instaView rec's

    The whole octopus thing was just showing that the alternate universes were very very different, and not just alternate histories within our own universe. Makes since within the rules of the show.
