Enjoyed the new Jerry special, he has a bit more of a physical stage presence than in the past which was surprising, but I thought worked well for the most part.

Some of the bits are really funny, the pop tart bit especially was hilarious.

 Insane that he's 65, he looks like he's in his early 50s.

I watched it the other morning. Really good stuff. I loved the "You're always just waiting to get somewhere" bit.

Mister Charlie told you so.

bought a single month of netflix a few days ago.  figured i'd have some time on my hands plus i really wanted to watch ozark season 3.  i really enjoyed seasons 1 and 2.  knocked out season 3 faster than i think i've ever watch any tv series ever.  but i wasn't impressed.  looking forward to checking out other things in this thread.

Just looked it up.  Theres no freaking way, dude.

I did say you would NOT thank me!

In all seriousness though, I would highly recommend the series 'Dark', it's the best thing ever imo.  Just make sure you do not watch in English, use the subtitles instead

Dark is excellent, and GBL is right, definitely watch it in German with the English subs.  Its third and final season is just a couple months away.  I'm pretty pumped for that.

So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

I just watched/binged DEVS on Hulu, and it was awesome.  For any fan of Dark, this show is very much a rec.

Deals with the same questions of free will vs determinism, good vs bad, etc., Set in a near-futurish SF.

I thought it could almost be better than Dark!  (Admitted recency bias, notwithstanding)

I really loved this one.  It's really dark and pretty depressing, but it's Charlie Kaufman, so that's to be expected.  I don't know if it tops Synecdoche, New York, but I definitely liked it better than Anomalisa (which I thought was very good).

It's kind of being sold as a horror movie.  The trailer sort of has that vibe, but I think you'll be let down if that's what you're expecting.  It does begin with a popular plot device of the genre, but it quickly becomes Kaufmanesque (the whole first act is basically like watching a dinner party where there's a gas leak, and it only gets weirder from there).

I guess it has been around awhile, but my wife and I just discovered i'm sorry a month or two ago and loved it.  Apparently, the third season was ready to go but they just got dropped because they film on location and don't use sets.  I'm totally in love with the main character, played by Andrea Savage, and she apparently writes it as well.  Anyhow, just fucking hilarious married with kid(s) humor.

I just crushed this over the long weekend. Super good! Very interesting And I really dig Nick Offerman in most things, but this is a very different role for him, and he does very well. Of course the nerd in mr loves the tech aspect, no matter how crazy it seems. Also, this shows cinematography and whole asthetic is very beautiful. Highly recommend as well.

Great movies little scary, given the times

Was talking about this yesterday. I haven't seen the new one but I'm familiar with his work... Basically, if you watch Borat and aren't constantly offended, then you may be the bad guy in the film.
