Mindhunter is pretty fucking cool, you guys.
I'm through ep7 (of 10) so far and I'm way hooked.
We love it. I think were on ep5 or 6.

same. on ep 4

took me an episode or two, and then i binged it over a weekend.

Finished it the other night and thought it was great!

Any of you guys check out The Punisher?  I still have three episodes to go, so I canít say for certain, but I think this may be my new favorite of the Marvel series.  Maybe tied with Luke Cage.  They keep knocking it out of the park with these shows.

We just finished the series a few minutes ago, it was really good. I still think Jessica Jones is my favorite so far. I was really kinda surprised to not see Claire pop up in it at some point.

Not entirely related, but not worthy of its own thread either...

Amazon prime video is finally available on appletv!
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Maybe old news but I just watched a doc the other day called "the magic of mushrooms" about the role fungi plays in nature & it was quite fascinating. No further description would do any justice.

Good to be back, think I'll stay this time.

If you change your mind, that would be cool too.

You're a mean one, Mister Mirth.

Over on the ol' movie blog, we've been doing some monthly streaming recommendations that are, perhaps, more out of the ordinary than the usual such recommendations. Here's December's:

Tremors and Gremlins 2 were both staples of my youth. And man has it been a while since I've seen either. Thanks for the heads up!

Also, I just watched Rare Exports last night with some friends, and it was a most enjoyable yuletide romp. Upper Finland is an unforgiving place.

On the topic of streaming and polar climes, I've recently heard of a documentary just released to Netflix called Under an Arctic Sky. Haven't seen it yet but I like the director's Instagram account. The film is about some people who travel to Iceland during a dreadful winter storm to do some surfing. I'm sure nothing goes wrong.

I made my wife watch Gremlins 2 last night. I probably hadn't seen that film in at least 20 years. And never under, uh, certain conditions. It was fun (she agreed). The final half was about as bonkers I as remembered it being. Call me old-fashioned, but the practical gremlin puppets make all the difference. They offer just the right blend of real and fake, to great comedic effect. If this were a modern-day CGI exhibition it'd be lesser for it.

Watched Banking on Bitcoin the other night. A really great explanation of an extremely complex topic in a totally accessible fashion. All the major bitcoin players are in it, including the Winklevii. If you want to be able to explain bitcoin to your grandma when the ole bag inevitably asks about it over the holidays, check it out.

Dude, youíre doing mini write ups of Gremlins 2 while neglecting The Last Jedi thread you started

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

One brings me joy. The other, only pain.

I should also note here that Gremlins 2 is actually streaming on Amazon Prime, not Netflix. I blame cactusfan for the derailment.
