Just finished Tiger King.

I actually vaguely recall seeing something about him on Dateline or some show like that but I have no memory of content. This documentary is pure gold!

I had watched McMillions and that was pretty fascinating. Had no idea about the ordeal.

I wonder what documentary I’ll watch next!

I decided I like Kipo a lot more than the Walking Dead.

In the Walking Dead, all they have to do is survive, but instead they are constantly losing due entirely to their made-up bullshit dramas. It's ridiculous. Ridiculous that they can't chill out during the apocalypse. And even more ridiculous that the more sensible ones don't just leave.

In Kipo, the sensible survivors actually can and do survive on their own. But they choose to hang out with Kipo (even though she is a damn fool) because they want to do more than survive. And Kipo, for her part, makes a solid argument that good relationships are actually really valuable in the apocalypse. And if it's so dangerous, why wouldn't you just try to make all the friends you can?

Has anyone started watching Freud? 5 of 8 episodes in and it is pretty weird so far. Ritualistic killings, seances, possibly multiple personalities. Not what I was expecting, but liking it.

I just started Tiger King, only 2 episodes in. I decided this is not the type of show I can binge...I need at least a full day after each episode to process what I just saw. I thought episode 1 had some bombshells, then came episode 2....

I wanna say "Just wait until episode 3!" but I could pretty much do that for any episode of the show, because each one is even more insane than the last.

A friend watched episode 1 and texted me ‘this show is wild.’ Ummm, yeah, watch episode 2 and get back to me.

Tiger King - the train wreck that kept on giving.

Letter to the King - meh medieval YA fantasy series. 6 episodes so not that long but wasn’t very memorable.

Black Lighting - watched first episode last night. Show has a lot of potential. Seems to be in the vein of Daredevil, Luke Cage, etc. without being strictly marvel.
