Ha ha ha ha ha. I vaguely remember this show as I was quite young and out of curiosity watched that. That part where the sasquatch throws him and while he's rolling down the hill they play the sound effects of bombs. WTF? Must have been one of Andre the Giant's first roles.

I finally got around to watching "Behind the Curve". Wow that was one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It did a great job letting me into this strange world and seeing how these people think. It was also great how they weren't poking fun at anyone and had a great overall message of tolerance but still gave the flat earthers more than enough rope to hang themselves with.

I'm not sure who is dumber though. The flat earthers, or the IMDB reviewers who gave this 1/10 because they didn't understand it was a documentary about the flat earthers, not a documentary trying to convert people to becoming flat earthers.

x2, I really enjoyed that. I don't know why but it's such an interesting topic to me. I remember when I first heard about the modern flat earth theory like 10 years ago I went to their website and spent like 7 hours straight reading up on it. Some of their arguments and theories are really interesting

Damnit, I just noticed cosmos is gone. Because of Neil DeGrasse Tyson, I'm assuming? What's another good show/series on Netflix to learn about the universe?

Watched Mid-90's last night. Directed by Jonah Hill. I grew up in the skateboarding crowd in the early 90's, so could relate quite a bit with this movie and enjoyed it. But I had the feeling it was trying to be like the movie "Kids" and at the end I was expecting something bigger.

More likely that Netflix's rights to it ran out and Disney (the new owner of Fox and NatGeo) didn't renew it because it will be one of the launch titles on Disney+ in the fall.

Watched “One Last Shot”; it has the Trailer Park Boys in one of their first movies. (No bubbles). Characters are early versions of who Ricky and Julian become, but they aren’t those characters.

Mr. Lahey is in it as Mr Lahie.

That takes me back, I remember seeing it years ago. That's where Julian (or whatever the characters name was beck then. Jerry? Gary?) worked in a pet store and Lahey was the manager? So crazy seeing where the beginnings of those guys. Also surprised me that it looked like Robb Wells was actually a pretty good actor, I'd always had him pegged as a guy that was good at the one character and that's all, but he was decent in that

Just came here to post this. First episode was hit or miss but the "Baby of the Year" skit had me laughing pretty good and most of second episode is pretty funny.

I just started watching this one show, “Lookalikes”. It’s kind of lame, but the one hilarious thing is how the black celebrity lookalikes look absolutely nothing like the actual celebrities. I think they just picked out random black people and said, “this is Will Smith and this is Barack Obama”.

I started watching "Easy". It's pretty great. It has excellent writing, characters and acting. Throw in a bit of softcore and it's a solid show. 8, 30 minutes episodes makes it quick to get through.

Well, finally figured out the Netflix erroring out constantly on my AppleTV that had been plaguing me for the last while.

Somehow with the new router I had inadvertently reserved a DHCP address and had a static IP set on the AppleTV. The Netflix app seemed to be the only thing that reacted poorly to it though.

How did you fix that. Netflix on my Samsung tv has had an error for like 3-4 days now.

Gold, Jerry.
Rewatched the whole series with my buddies yesterday and everyone was pretty much dying laughing. Just so absurd.
