But I hear it's another show full of terrible people being terrible to each other. I watched the first episode and don't see any reason to disagree.
I'm Sorry on Tru TV looks like American Catastrophe without a strong male lead.
Santana did this with his Supernatural cd.
That is how, for instance, House of Cards was created; they looked at their selection analytics, customer surveys, and other data and determined that Kevin Spacey - the preferred actor - and politics - the preferred venue - were what their subscriber based wanted. It's not surprising that they'd build a show exactly like that.
The only Netflix show that I really like is Narcos and that is because it's the only one I've found that comes across as organic. Master of None is fine, but it's just Ansari being himself.
They did the same thing with The Last Kingdom - probably the only other Netflix show that I'll go out of my way to watch - as they did with The Fall. They licensed it from an overseas producer (RTE One in The Fall's case; BBC in The Last Kingdom's case). They do that a lot with content from abroad.
Virtually all of their original content is, or at least used to be, analytics-based.
Sorry, forgot to include spoilers in my subject line.
But you're all a bunch of losers.
Probably the worst non-buy of my life. Exactly one year ago, I had an alert set up on my trading app to send me a text if Netflix dropped below $85. I did and sent me a message while I was sitting on the beach in North Carolina. I immediately went on my app and attempted to execute a buy. The reception was too spotty and wouldn't go through. I thought "no worries", I'll buy as soon as I get back to the beach house. I completely forgot about it once I got to the house and the rest of vacation.
Turns out that was a temporary dip. And as it blows past $175 today in post market trading, I go and kick myself in the ass one more time.
if you like the stock, buy it. If you think a stock is overpriced, sell it.
But if you have a job that doesn't allow every day monitoring of stock prices and market developments then limit orders, stop losses, etc. are a good way to mitigate risk. Though if you're in that position you should probably turn your trading decisions over to someone that is able to monitor the markets on a regular basis.
I am sure I am forgetting another Sunday night show.
I have to agree with you here. I heard 4 references today about GOT, and in years prior, those same people swore about the other Sunday night shows that I listed. I couldn't care less.
None interested me in the slightest.
The one difference here is that I'm hoping a Gerry-Cheever's-Mask-Wearing, Light-Sabre-Brandishing serial killer shows up to slice the cheating couple to bits, starting with their genitals.
But yeah, you're pretty much right.
It's also tiresome to be asked to root for largely shitty people again. The best characters also happen to be the best actors: Fred Savage, Robyn Sparkles and the bygones guy from Ally McBeal. The other three vary from useless to reprehensible.
I'm not sure one of those scripts would have survived my writers' workshop without getting hammered. Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup do such an amazing job of acting you almost (almost) forget just how shitty the script is.
was left similarly limp. Good grief it was slow and unfunny.
There's a point when a character is too big an asshole. I liked the woman and she could have been a great character. But no.
HBO, Showtime, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and FX plus the networks and their dreck.
Little common ground these days. Need a curator to find the stuff worth your time.
Netflix and Amazon have vast amounts of money, and I think they are chasing too few good ideas.

I know that's not where you were going, but it really is a fantastic show.
