It's a little hokey but I've started to watch and enjoy Forged in Fire.

Now watch Generation Kill.

It is so well done, many of the themes and scenes are universal to modern military.

I loved it.

I just started watching the Netflix series Life and Death Row by BBC this weekend. It's amazing, I'd really recommend it to people who love true crime. It's really well done and shows the reality of death row in the US, and how sometimes the punishment seems appropriate, and other times it's done almost gratuitously. Highly recommend it, although it's a pretty heavy watch.

It's not hokey, it's fantastic. It's like a cooking show, but with weapons, and fire, and keeling. I'm pretty much a master blacksmith now, though I've never touched a forge.


For a similar show, see The Butcher. I've actually learned a bit about cuts of meat from it. Another season or 2 and I'll be a master butcher as well.

It reminds me a lot of watching chopped.
The Forged in Fire equivalent of firing up the ice cream maker is deciding to do a ladder damascus when it isn't part of the requirements.

My brother recommended Forged In Fire to me and Iíve watched a few episodes. I donít like most reality shows but this has very few of the bad tropes and itís great that thereís very little drama and itís all about their blacksmithing skill. I know some guys who make knives and Iíd be tempted to give it a try myself if I had space for a shop.

What just happened with Fred Savage is so well done.


Basically its a fake after talk show covering a fake show called the Flare. So at the start you'll get the last couple of minutes of this mysterious show on Shaw. Then Fred Savage plays himself as the host of the aftershow and he's a mega fan boy of the show and he's like the worst host ever.


It makes me laugh

Just finished watching Justified (2010-2015) for the first time.


Starred Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins, among others. Some parts dragged a bit but overall a pretty good show. About a US Marshal who is involved in a shooting and get sent to his old hometown where he once worked in a coal mine with Goggins, the crime kingpin in the area.


Sam Elliott also had a role in the final season.

Absolutely tremendous series. All the core characters are excellent, and Olyphant and Goggins are brilliant throughout. Each season has a different rendition of You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive, so that's a bonus.

What we do in the Shadows is f'ing hilarious, especially if you liked the film. I wasn't expecting much when I started it. But holy crap, a ton of LOL moment. Pretty much every character is awesome and funny.

My only regret is starting the show while it was still in S1, so I have to wait as the series goes on.

Definitely a sleeper show that deserves more attention.

Holy crap! Crave has all 130(!) episodes of The Hilarious House of Frightenstein.

So, I guess that takes care of the rest of my summer.

A lot of people give Jemaine Clement credit for WWDITS (cripes) being hilarious, but to me it's all Taika Waititi. Thor: Ragnarok is actually funny because of him (writing, directing and acting).

He has a TV show based on Terry Gilliam's Time Bandits coming out later this year, so that's one to keep an eye out for.

My wife was on a business trip and before bed was watching Netflix and stumbled upon the IT Crowd, a show I watched years ago!

Love that show.

"Look how long this is taking to go on fire.....and its made of matches!!"

So many great lines. Chris O'Dowd is hilarious.

And if you're a fan of O'Dowd, check out Moone Boy where he plays a young boy's imaginary friend. Its awesome.

The new season of Veronica Mars was supposed to come out next week on Hulu in the States and Crave in Canada. Instead, they made a surprise announcement at Comic Con and dropped it today.

All 8 episodes at once! Nice.
