    as much as I do have some issues with the Final Season of Marvel's Runaways on HULU, I am happy and sad it's over now having finished watching it yesterday.

    I am curious about both what Brian K Vaughan's work adaptations; Y: The Last Man and I guess Paper Girls.

    But also what the cast may do now, namely the Kids in Runaways, I could see them appearing in other Brian K Vaughan's work or like some of the MCU shows, which will likely be on Disney+ which I don't currently have access to.

    High Fidelity the TV Show coming to Hulu on Valentine's Day. Starring Zoe Kravitz

    Maybe they could get Jack Black or John Cusack to make a cameo?

    I did. I never miss the true crime stuff on Netflix. I also watched Don't F**K With Cats about Luka Magnotta. The building he committed that crime in is not too far from my house and I have walked by it on numerous occasions.

    I watched that too..I was really taken with the investigative skills of amateurs. The internet is such an amazing tool that is available to anyone with enough patience and determination to solve mysteries that, at first look unsolvable. I was blown away at their use of Google maps/earth to figure out where that building was, after establishing it was located in Montreal. Highly recommended viewing..however..a warning to cat lovers. Although the graphic nature of the animal crimes are not shown, it is still very upsetting and anger promoting.

    Yeah, kudos to the two main "investigators" though I found both of them to be just a little too full of themselves... They did some great work to locate him first in Toronto, then later in Montreal.

    10 episodes? Mmm, I think I should read the book again and watch Jack and John. Such great memories! Don't know if this will be the case with this series.

    Other than Zoe Kravitz, I have zero interest in that. Nothing in that trailer enticed me... other than Zoe's character being bi.

    Zoe was in Big Little Lies? Right? Great in that.

    Finished it last night. I can certainly understand your ambiguity . I did enjoy it immensely, allowing for the artistic license that permeated the series.

    I'll put it up there with Breaking Bad as one of the greatest TV shows ever and I have no clue what just happened.

    Can't say squat, spoilers and all those jazz hands. Even if I did, I don't know what I'm talking about.

    Something amazing happened and I will have to watch many times to understand what happened.

    ETA: For stupid line and to add this: It's the best use of Styx Mr. Roboto ever in film or television.

    Been reading a few pages of fan boards and I'm still confused but whatever happened was beautiful. So many ways it can be construed yet it wasn't LOST which, quite frankly, was a very lousy ending to a show.
    Just finished the series last night, and I have to say that I found it to be one of the most enjoyable and well-done conclusions to a series in my experience. I don't really know how much range Rami Malek will ultimately show, but as a break-out role this was a remarkable turn for him.

    He did win the Oscar for both best actor & best overbite last year, so few are questioning his range now.

    Messiah's on my list too, Yves.

    Ah, but there are those who would say he won the Oscar because of the overbite...

    How did you watch it? On demand or streamed from USA?


    The two shows at the top of my list, whose entire series I want to binge, are Mr Robot and Preacher, both of which ended this year. The problem is you're unable to binge the shows from one network for free.

    The first three seasons of Mr Robot are included with Prime but the fourth is on USA's website.

    Preacher is unavailable anywhere for free. However, my library has the first three seasons on DVD and the fourth is due to be released February 11, according to Amazon.

    Man, they don't make this easy on ya, do they?

    Watched season 4 streaming with the USA app. You have to sit through commercials, but there's no extra fee, at least with our system (Hulu plus live tv subscription).

    With hesitation, due to all the recent twinkle toe vampire stuff, I watched the first episode of Netflix 'Dracula' last night...I thought it was great! We'll see how it goes as it's a 3-4 part series, each episode 90 mins or so. Check it if you're in the mood for good ole Bram style.

    Anyone started watching The Outsider on HBO? Only one episode in so far. I'm assuming there's going to be more twists than evil twin brother.

    Sure, as soon as they stop using Aretha Franklin's Respect in 8 out of 10 comedy movie trailers.
