    While I truly loved this series, I also believed they kinda became lost in plot. This would’ve been better as a limited or short series. The first season would’ve ended with resolution than continuation but I guess they wanted to attract more viewers, and now they’re stuck in continuity limbo. They could’ve ended it earlier.

    Truly sad.

    Horse Girl

    It wasn't a very good movie, but I still give it 9.5/10. Basta.

    It has nothing to do with Alison Brie being nude a lot, and I mean a lot. :p

    Spenser Confidential was a nice watch after a long day at work. Dumb but nice which works out for Netflix. It's a Whalberg and Berg production and that's always worth looking into.

    Iliza Shlesinger is in there. I like her but she overdid the Boston accent but I think it was intentional. Post Malone is also there which I think was a great fit for the role.

    I am lining up a list of movies and TV shows to watch during my self-quarantine. I am targeting an average of 3-5 movies or a TV show season per day. I won’t be picky on the selection Netflix will be offering during Self-Quarantine Month. Amazon Prime is a second choice and HBO or Hulu third. I expect a change of my eyeglasses at the end of this month.

    Mm...on Hulu, try watching The Goldbergs and Fresh Off the Boat. Sitcoms set in the 80s. For medical drama, The Resident and New Amsterdam.

    I also love Shark Tank.

    Because she’s the proverbial horse, I presume? Which is naked all the time. Perfect.

    I took a gander watching Gerald’s Game not because it’s Stephen King but because I was getting tips on soft BDSM. You know,
    Bed, Dress, Sex, Murder (or Death actually) ;)

    Thank you for the helpful parental guidance notes. I'll make sure that the kids stay away from it.

    Liked Gerald's Game too. Carla Gugino tied up in bed... say no more. Unfortunately she isn't as ahem, daring as our dear Alison Brie was in Horse Girl, but still, you can fill in the blanks in your imagination. Or rewatch Carla in Sin City. :p

    ^I did watch Horse Girl last night (or this morning because it was 2am). I didn’t bother about the story actually, but it bothered me that nudity was around. I had to close my eyes when Alison did. You know, dispelling the imagination that she was all plasticky in The Lego Movie. Now what if she were nude there? :whistle:

    Netflix seems to be glitching these days, and by that I mean switching to low-resolution, hanging, dropping out. I can almost feel their servers groaning under the worldwide demand brought on by quarantine/shelter-in-place. Is this happening with you guys, too?

    Tech details: I'm on 100 mbps PLDT Fibr, recently rebooted, and I'm prioritizing the device I'm using to watch, using Google WiFi.

    Haven't experience any glitches using the netflix iOS app or through the web using safari on Mac OS. Maybe their CDNs are being hammered by the amount of requests from people in quarantine

    started watching FORMULA 1 Drive to Survive and i think its very engaging.

    PRISONERS is also a great Movie

    HOMELAND season 3 is rather slow but i heard the latest season is very fast and each episode is like a new movie
