    I wouldn't go so far as say 2 sucks, but it's definitely a drop in quality (trying to force the push to the Defenders mini-series). But season 3 is as good as the first one, possibly better.

      Netflix Halt and Catch Fire ... a series set in the early 80s when PCs, Modems, Games etc first started. About a group of geeks trying to make their fortune / change the world.

      I was one of them so I think it's a great series so far (season 2).

        yes it is good but I think we canceled Netflix before finishing it. How many seasons does it have?

            I found season 2 creepy weird. The amputee thing was bizarre.

            Agree, season 2 was really odd. I love Billy Bob, he's a solid actor (for a drunk). But the 2nd and 3rd seasons were a bust for that show.

              finished it tonight. Was really good. And theres nothing about it that would make someone turn their head or get freaked out. The comments I've seen online over that are unfounded imo. Was really interesting, bet you both would like it. My wife and I both were glued to it.

                Young Rock - The Rock telling his life story in a fictional setting a decade from now during his Presidential run. It’s pretty funny and most the guys they cast for the wrestlers have been pretty spot on so far.

                Just finished up The Undoing on HBO Max which was really well done I thought.

                Now moved on to Tell Me Your Secrets with a crazy plot about a woman who dated a serial killer, a mother of a girl killed by the serial killer, and her using a rapist to help find her/her killer...super creepy but really good so far

                I binged "the boys" season 1 and 2 the last two weeks. Was really good.

                  The wife and I watched Watchmen (HBOMax) the show starts off strong and interesting. For the first 5-6 eposides it really starts to get good and hooks you in. In the last 3 episodes they try to wrap up all the loose ends and it really starts to weight it down. Where it starts out with a bang, really interesting it just limps into the end. I would be interested to see what they do with the property, but as a single season mini-series it's worth a watch, but plan to be disappointed.

                  Wasn't a fan of the Watchman TV series. I liked the movie but the TV series had a stupid racism plot.

                  @Seedy is watching Dexter again so I gave it a try. Made it through the first season but had to drop out. Guess I should dig through this thread for some new shows.

                  Unlike almost every other hacker movie/show, there are a TON of real infosec references. Apps, data exfil, usb malware, reverse shells, rubber duckies, wifi pinapple, China infiltration, data deletion, UPS firmware wiping, etc...all are legit. Funniest is the “I’m Dave Kennedy, I work with Craig on the Q4 push.” (). Dave is totally legit, industry respected, hacker.

                  must be watched multiple times to get all the little nuances.

                  I would only recommend it through the Jon Lithqow season (season 4) it dropped in quality after that.
