It’s a good distraction from all the heaviness that is life right now.
that was exactly my thought - I'm going to start tonight while hubby is at work (because he WILL HATE THAT SHOW) :lol:

Greg didn’t hate it. He found it mildly entertaining. I enjoy watching with him because I love commenting on the ridiculous behavior and also the real estate. Haha. But you know your dh and probably better enjoyed without him. LMK what you think if you watch it. Hope you find it entertaining.

We are watching Wynona Earp Missy and it's entertaining, in the 'Buffy' genre, fighting demons but has a funny vein, also we are watching Norsemen because one of John's friends liked it, I find it mildly entertaining but John loves it. xo

It’s a good distraction from all the heaviness that is life right now.

Bumping this thread to add The Social Dilemma\ on Netflix. It’s an eye-opening documentary about social media, google and our smart phones in general. :oops2:

Agreed, we watched it last week and it made for some uncomfortable/thought provoking watching. Particularly at the end when each interviewee was asked "Do you let your kids access social media?"

Yes!!! I mean...I guess this just confirmed what we all knew. How did FB know to offer up for sale that purse I looked at in Kate Spade?
It is quite scary to be honest. Especially how it affects and reinforces our politics!!

It was the bit about measuring how long we looked at photos for - not entirely sure how true that is, but it did make me question whether or not I wanted every photo automatically uploaded to Google (eh, naw.)

SPOILER BLY MANOR


@missy I didn't see any of the "ghosts" that were hidden in almost every single scene of that show. I was shocked.

I'm getting into Korean dramas again. Start Up is very interesting, but long.

“The Social Dilemma” on Netflix blew my mind.

I’m glad I saw it before Nov. 3rd.

Hey - just reviving this thread. Saw some awesome/escapist series...

1. The Queen's Gambit
2. The Home Edit (someone else above saw it)
3. Dream Home Makeover
Loved The Queen's Gambit. We just watched the entire series in like 2 or 3 nights. So good.

I started watching Barbarian and I really like it. I’ll have to watch the Queen’s Gambit next.

The Queen’s Gambit was outstanding!
Also: COBRA KAI!!!!!!!!! I resisted for several weeks, then decided to give it a go. Wow, I absolutely loved it. At times a little cheesy but I cannot wait for the 3rd season which comes out in early January. It’s so so so good!

Da 5 Bloods should come with a trigger warning, btw. It’s a Spike Lee film and has a great cast but the violence was too much for me and I had to stop halfway through. I’m also working on a slide show for my dad of pics from his Vietnam brothers and all their reunions so it was even harder to watch because that’s all fresh in my mind. My dad is 80 now and never ever would talk about those days; he did like 3 tours...but now he’s really opening up. I hate war.

WOW. That is rough, for you and your Dad. The courage it must take to talk about it, and listen. I don’t think I could do it. Vietnam, for me, left an indelible memory. I was too young to understand it when it was happening, but impact it had on those young men, transitioning from the idyllic early 60s to the disillusionment of the 70s, was tragic.
I’m still trying to drum up the courage to watch Da 5 Bloods.

I highly recommend The Social Dilemma just for self-awareness. While I knew much of it conceptually, it is strong and effective in showing how social media is driving the polarity/division see today to a degree and in ways most don't even begin to realize.

A small social group of my co-workers pick a Netflix movie to watch each week. Admittedly, they are much more into watching shows than I am under normal circumstances (I call it my "homework" lol) The most recent ones were:

The Octopus Teacher (mentioned by others): I loved it as did others. A must see for nature lovers.

Enola Holmes - I enjoyed it while some loved it. Fast paced and interesting story line.

Hubie Halloween - ugh...I had to turn it off after 30 minutes.

Over the Moon - I thought it was good even if the story line and songs seemed more familiar than anything you will remember the movie for years later. I loved the visuals and characters which were reminiscent of Pixar movies. An added plus was the many references to Asian culture.

We started watching "His House" on Netflix last night. So far so good. I am hoping it gets very scary as the reviews promise. :errrr:

I loved The Queen's Gambit, binge watched last week. I don't love the ending, though. It emphasized the "here and now" without consideration of what will happen after that point, and it made me uneasy because I got the impression she might defect to the USSR where she will have a more comfortable life playing chess, which uncannily undid the trajectory of that arc of triumphing over herself as well as Borgov.
