    I just watched the first two, came to post about it lol. It's excellent. I love that scene Billy Bob in ep 2, as you'll find out.

    I love Yellowstone, but I always wanted to see what their land was like in the past. This is a great companion to Red Dead Redemption 2 (same era), which I recently picked up on PC.

    I like that Isabel May and those freckles

    Sam Elliot still has that great presence too!

    I started watching 'Arcane' after hearing great things about it and then watching Critical Drinker's video on it.

    I'm only 3 episodes in, and holy shit, this MIGHT be the best new series of the year.

    1st episode - "Hmmm, this is very very good, but sometimes pilots are but the rest of the show sucks."
    2nd episode - "Woah, its getting even better. I'm 100% hooked."

    3rd episode - <30>
    "Holy fucking shit, that felt like an awesome season finale, and I still have 6 episodes left."

    10/10 Animation.
    10/10 Writing.
    10/10 Voice Acting.
    I literally have no complaints. There's absolutely nothing I have seen of the show that I thought 'they could have done _______ better.'

    When I'm finished I'm going to make a thread on this show, because Invincible and Squid Game has some serious competition for 'Best New Series of 2021.'

    And no, I've never played the game this show is supposedly based on, inspired by, or whatever. By itself its amazing, and it blows my mind its actually based on an online shooter.

    Seriously, this is probably the best video game-inspired/based content ever, and by a wide margin.

    How is this the first time I'm hearing of this? I just watched the trailer and I'm so in. I like Kyle Chandler as well and Mr In-between is epic.

    I mentioned in the movie thread that I watched the Aaron Sorkin written and directed movie about Lucille Ball and Dezi Arnez.

    They touched upon how CBS wouldn't let them say the word "Pregnant" on TV.

    Last night, I spent some time watching the pilot episodes of a couple of shows. The first was The Jeffersons.

    My wife noted how interesting it was that in one generation, they went from not allowing the word Pregnant to being allowed to say the N word.

    I guess the 60-70s really was an evolutionary leap in broadcasting.

    That's what I did for Yellowstone, still haven't got around to starting S3.

    I'm really liking 1883 though, it's such a cool time period.

    I'm up to date on Yellowstone. Season 3 starts to pick up quite a bit. It didn't really sink it's teeth into me until then.

    I think Yellowstone on demand omitted some nudity the live show had. I could be wrong.

    I finished it and it absolutely is.

    I made a thread in Mayberry but I think it was deleted. Its now showing up in any search results.

    In short, my review is its better than Squid Game, and it MIGHT be better than Invincible. I'll need to watch it again to be 100% sure.

    The animation is flawless, and its what I'd coin as 'Desktopable.' Every few seconds there's a shot you'd like to screenshot and make it your desktop background.

    My complaints with the story are few, minor, far-between, and I MAY just be knit-picky. Hell, I've forgotten what they all were by now, three days later, with the exception of one.

    Damn, I really want the 2nd season to come out soon, but I'd rather they take their time and make it a masterpiece like the 1st season.

    Looking forward to dexter new blood tonight. I wasn’t sold at first on the first 3 episodes but episodes 4-7 have been pretty freaking great. Especially the last episode. Clancy Browne is a great villain and I like that it’s not a kill of the week format for this season.

    What did you guys think of the South Park Covid episodes ?
    I won't spoil what Cartman's profession becomes when he grows up.

    And Butters with his NFT's, lol.

    If you can get Clancy Brown, you should always do so.

    Didn't that abruptly end when it was canceled?

    From what I just read season three wrapped up the show pretty well.

    @mb23100 it got pretty gay when it moved to Netflix . . . it wasn't all that bad when it was on Fox.

    I don't remember how it ended either though . . .
