    The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann

    This is another great true crime miniseries/long documentary, full of (real life) plot twists.
    I LOOOOVE this sort of thing.

    If you like it, too, this one's for you. And, don't lose faith after watching the first episode: things are NOT what they seem.

    Movie seemed pretty cheaply thrown together. It was entertaining enough to watch. The guy who played Mick Mars did a good job... Iwan something. AND I was shocked to learn that Machine Gun Kelly was playing Tommy Lee. I am not fan of MGK in any shape or form but he was very likeable as Tommy.

    The scene with Ozzy was a highlight of the film. Made me wish I was watching the Ozzy movie.

    The dirt is a funny porn movie and that's all
    It could be a lot better as a serie, this movie was 99 % excesses and depravity and 1% about music

    Finished watching The Dirt... Mick made me laugh, as another acute chronic pain person. Overall, I liked it. MGK played dorky and excessive Tommy quite well.

    Watched the second season of Stranger Things for the second time and I'm finding myself enjoying it more. Sure, season one was amazing, but season 2 is still quite enjoyable. I think folks will find they like it more on second viewing. They did a better job with season two than either of True Detective's second and third seasons.

    Okay everybody, I need recommendations!

    I have a painful amount of flying coming up (multiple 12+ airtime hour trips in the span of a month). I need shows that will keep me distracted. Tend to prefer comedies, but it also helps if the show has a season-long story arc and not just individual episodes. Kim's Convenience and Arrested Development are good examples. Way off the comedy topic, I also plowed through an entire season of Broadchurch in one flight once, but I was also already hooked on the show. I have Amazon and Netflix available, but willing to take any suggestions.

    @theimage13 Schitts Creek first 4 seasons? Each episode is only 30 minutes. I blew through two seasons in one night.

    i really, really enjoyed the new She-Ra series, but it made me cry a lot.

    i second the rec for Schitt's Creek, it's fantastic.

    Just finished THE OA Part II and I really hope it's not another 3 years before we get the third season. What an incredible show.

    A decent amount. I'm fairly fussy when it comes to comedy specials... I've stopped watching so many after the first couple of jokes. This, I made it through the whole way.

    I thought that Jeong special was totally cringey. Felt like hackneyed jokes from a beginner, which I guess is b/c this is his first foray back into it after years of being away. Never found anything he said clever. We groaned a bunch, and turned it off after 15-20 minutes. Lots of obvious and low brow Asian references and jokes early on. Kept thanking all these different people for getting him to do the special, for supporting him, etc. MOVE ON AND DO YOUR ROUTINE.

    @theimage13 ,again: for a stunning mix of humor and emotional weight, BoJack Horseman is amazing.
    @bobbie solo - RIGHT?! That was just insane.
    It was like the stars aligned in some godawful way that caused...
    Ah, I don't wanna spoil it. But it was nuts.

    Ugh you were right, it just sucked. No pun intended. It was just gross stupid misogyny.

    The fact that none of the guys were remotely cute didn’t help. Vince looked like a shrimpy Garth in Wayne’s World.

    Edit: This is a really funny review (note that he also sees the GARTH IN WAYNE’S WORLD resemblance!!)

    I don't like Neil Strauss, but he's good at hooking you in with the gory details. His Game book also, and the Manson biography.

    I think he's a fabricator and glamorizer, but I think he makes shit feel so real and believable, even when it goes to some crazy territory.
    But his version of Motley Crue on paper was way more definitive and godlike in its arc... he fails at this by the way, his final chapter where he redeems his characters... At least in The Dirt he didn't really. The movie tried to, and failed miserable, and wasn't gory enough to even earn the book's exoneration.
