It’s good, I’m on episode 3.

The Americans- people rave about this show, don’t they? it’s pretty good but I don’t love it, on Season 2 now.


30 Coins- Super over the top horror, in Spanish. I feel like the show had potential but it’s way too ridiculous. First episode felt like a season finale.

Just finished rewatching Sopranos, so good.

I wouldn't put it past 45, Mcconnell, Hawley, or any of those mfs


There were a couple parts that felt over the top, but I saw an interview where Bush + Renz remind us that what they depicted is not even a fraction of how fucked up white supremacy actually is, particularly during that era. Can't really argue that.

I tried posting here abt it after I watched it and used the word great, but wild is a much more accurate/appropriate word choice. Agreed.

In response to Reply # 12


          

*Spoilers within*

I know they may have been trying to highlight that folks should be attentive at all times, but... Why would she not even check to make sure she was getting in the Uber she ordered? Where in the entire hell did the little girl come from in the hotel elevator (and dressed like THAT) no adult supervison or anything? The guy she tried to escape with, as strong as he was, just suddenly became useless to point of getting killed quite quickly and easily, and she had to kill the slaver herself. I know the story is about a female hero and all, but damn. The agendas here were more important than good storytelling at some key spots in this movie... mostly the transitional spots, which can really ruin a story.

Concept was cool tho. It's a shame, because if it didn't seem so slapped together, it would probably be one of my favorite movies right now.

>*Spoilers within*

This isn't that uncommon, is it? And given the psycho couple were intent on kidnapping her due to their father's/father-ILs obsession w/ Monae's character... would that even have made a difference? They could've just lied, no? Like:

"Hey, are you Abigail?"

"Yes Ma'am "

etc.

Where in the entire hell did the little girl come
>from in the hotel elevator (and dressed like THAT) no adult
>supervison or anything?

Well I mean, where did the creepy flower delivery guy come from (who obv worked for Denton as he was wearing one of those BD pins)?? And psycho red-head girl i.e. Denton's daughter, when she got into Monae's character's room (and was also wearing a BD pin)? The little girl/psycho red-head girl's daughter was dressed the same as how she was earlier in the movie when she was "in character" at the family's plantation, so maybe she'd just come from there or was about to go there etc. I actually think the Denton family might've even owned that hotel or something, bc that would make sense of why the flower guy and psycho red-head girl and the little girl/psycho red-head girl's daughter were able to gain such easy access. Additionally, if the Denton family owned that hotel it would help explain how they knew Monae's character would be in town for that specific conference and at that specific restaurant that night in order to abduct her (eg. remember her creepy interaction with the front desk, which she just assumed was bad customer service?). Denton was a racist wealthy election-rigging POS whose name was plastered all over (eg. the huge re-election ad the ubers drove past when Monae's character was being abducted) and had a huge following. It'd actually make total sense that the plantation and re-enactment park were not his only properties in the area. He was like a Trump.


The guy she tried to escape with, as
>strong as he was, just suddenly became useless to point of
>getting killed quite quickly and easily, and she had to kill
>the slaver herself. I know the story is about a female hero
>and all, but damn.

Hmm... I think useless is a little harsh on dude. Denton intentionally went ham on him first (which they also did at the start of the film when they were trying to subdue/recapture he and his wife... so maybe neutralizing the Black man first was/is the actual tactic). And also we have to remember he was enslaved at that point... who knows what kind of injuries he might have been fighting with? Even that shit they did to his back earlier in the film could have rendered him a weaker fighter still by the time of that later escape attempt. It's not like they were being taken care of/had access to healthcare or anything.

If your issue is with the idea that little Monae could have taken out Denton tho, then I donno... I don't think we should put anything past a woman trying to fight her way back to her child/family. And maybe that was a point Bush + Renz were trying to make intentionally? Denton's confederate thugs brutally murdered that guy's wife right in front of him, which must have been excruciatingly traumatic and emasculating etc. Maybe not only brutalizing the Black man but taking away all he had to fight for (and rubbing it in his face, by making him clean up her remains in that death shed) made him a weaker fighter and more susceptible to Denton's intent to kill him once and for all. In contrast, throughout Monae's time at that plantation we see her reminding herself of her family (eg. running her hands over the replica of her daughter's picture she carved into the wood) and her motivation to escape. And perhaps that made her a more desperate and ruthless fighter.

The agendas here were more important than
>good storytelling at some key spots in this movie... mostly
>the transitional spots, which can really ruin a story.
>
>Concept was cool tho. It's a shame, because if it didn't seem

Lol, I'm just glad to get a chance to talk about it. No one I know in real life has bothered to check it out. I def think it's worth watching tho.

It took me a long time to watch this, because I knew it would be sad. Th hardest part was the beginning. I am glad I watched it though. Learned some things about Rose Parks I didn't know and a perspective on the bus boycott that I hadn't seen.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Stories focused more on 'underworld' power brokers like Big U, Hatian Jack, Supreme Team, crew, etc.. and how they shaped hip hop

Some great footage and stories so far, and a fresh take just in the sense that these are people you see pop up in other docs and stories as behind the scenes, but are never the focus

Almost done with episode 3. There are 4 but this should only be 3 or 2 episodes. Just remove everything with these youtuber 'investigators'. they're kinda ruining it.

at least that i've ever seen

the buildings are all occupied, and DTLA is weird in the sense that there's also so much construction going on and money going into it, but in the sense that these people are corralled into this area and how it's pretty much it's own world reminds me a lot of it.

there are mini skid rows and tent communities all over LA now though

In response to Reply # 38


  

          

here's a 15 year veteran homicide detective.
here's a cop who worked skid row for over a decade.
here's a forensic pathologist who's done over 1000 atuopsies.

here's gary. middle aged neckbeard who lives with his mom and has a youtube channel. he says the way the elevator door closes is hard evidence of an lapd conspiracy. i mean, he's watched the video 200 times.

now let's hear from six more people just like Gary

i thought they brought it around with that poor death metal guy, and it showed even though these people could be well meaning, bored busybodies trying to find purpose, that outside the Dark Water thing, they turned out to be ultimately useless. to their credit, at the very least, they seemed to admit most of the shit they said was wrong.

I know its old, but I thoroughly enjoyed the show. I think the ending is fitting but still sad they couldnt get a second season.

Dropped off a couple months ago and didn't pick it back up, but I was impressed by all the worlds they were bringing together (although Justin Long's American character drove me crazy.)

I left off at ep 5, and the ending seemed to be hinting at the start of a love affair that I wasn't too excited about.

At first I wasn't feeling it because there is no story line, but after watch for a while it was actually good.

Google describes it as "Intimate and personal moments from the lives of the black community of Hale County, Alabama, forming an emotive impression of the historic South and consequences of racism while upholding the beauty of life."

I ended up liking it.

Goddamn if it's slow, my wife tapped out about 15 minutes in.

I almost tapped out halfway through ep.1

But by the end of the first and the whole second eps I realized sometimes that slow start / slow burn whether a book or a show or a movie, is rewarded.

Definitely feel like it picked up in the second and looking forward to finishing

Finishing strong is a whole other issue with these series

A 70's NYC PBS music/talk show. Season 1 is on Amazon. It's awesome. Ali, James Baldwin, Nikki Giovanni, Al Green, Mandrill, Bill Withers, McCoy Tyner...etc...etc. Long form interviews, spoken word, musical performances.

I just watched an episode with LaBelle. Awesome!

49. "The Sopranos, season 1"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Watching it for the very first time.

I like to immerse myself into a show when I watch it by reading posts and listening to episode-by-episode podcasts. But that's hard to do with The Sopranos without stumbling onto spoilers. I've tried listening to a couple of episodes of the "Talking Sopranos" podcast, and while they're reviewing the show episode by episode, they're also talking about the show as a whole very fluidly. So Imperioli and Schirripa will occasionally just casually reference things that happen in later seasons and then I get annoyed with myself for listening. But then I go back and listen again because I really like hearing them talk about it.

What I'm saying is, I'm enjoying The Sopranos. That Bokeem Woodbine character in that one episode was overwritten though.

It's such a good show. It triggers a lot of nostalgia for me as I was basically AJ's age with an older sister at the time the show aired and grew up in NJ. Definitely more rewatchable for me than The Wire, the "other" GOAT HBO series.

Pod Yourself A Gun is another fun podcast where each episode is loosely based around an episode of the show. I think they may drop little spoilers once in a while though.

It was straight. They definitely maintained a really creepy vibe. We got a few good character development set ups right off the bat.

*SPOILER*


I was a little caught off guard that they caught the killer in the same episode. I was expecting the story to play out over at least a couple of episodes. I hope they don't make catching killers easy like Jessica Fletcher.
