No. The Simpsons is the only Fox series on there.

This past 5 years was the anomaly.
Yep, you're totally right. I bet in a decade people are going to tell kids about the good old days in the late 2000's/early 2010's when Netflix came in and dominated the streaming market at like $9/mth while everyone is paying $90 - $100 for all streaming TV/movie and sports services to match what cable was providing, plus another $50+ for internet.

That said, Pacino knocked it out of the park as Hoffa. Best performance in the film to me.
We split watching it over 2 nights. I thought it was great, thoguh the whole epilogue felt totally unnecessary and probably could have been handled by screen text. It didn't really add anything at all. That would have cut 30 minutes. I didn't really have a problem with the age thing.

It was no Goodfellas, but still relatively entertaining.

Joe Pesci’s performance was especially strong I thought. Smart, calm, calculating Joe Pesci is not really a role I’ve ever seen him in, but he pulled it off well. Pacino too. Maybe it was because his face was behind 3 layers of CGI, but DeNiro always felt a little wooden. Not really the most compelling character either.

Still haven't finished it, going to try to watch it all in one go? Tough for a three hour movie... does Pesci beat anyone up with a telephone?

I'm drawing a blank and it's off my "watching" list on Netflix now. What was the cartel show that was based on Mexico? I feel like it wasn't Narcos or El Chapo. It had some other main character and started near Guajajara, Mexico.

There is Narcos: Mexico. It was produced as a sequel to the original Narcos, but is considered a separate series with a timeline that runs parallel to the original.

Yes, that's it. Thank you! I was screwing myself over trying to look for a drug cartel title that wasn't narcos.

Hey guys, I think the important thing here is that the last season of Fuller House is up.

When you say “last season”, does that mean they are not going to make anymore and we are safe!? It’s a Festivus Miracle!


... unless you just mean the most recent season and they are not stopping at throwing darts at a wall of useless TV shows to produce.

Don't ###### With Cats is another good true crime documentary. It's a 3 part series on Luka Magnotta. I knew a bit about the story but it's crazier than I thought. Worth the time to watch.

Black Summer, the prequel to Z Nation, is also surprisingly great. I loved Z Nation for what it is worth.

The shoot out in the Stampede grounds and then on the walkway into the Dome that turns into McMahon was sweet.

Very interesting documentary. Led me to walk down memory lane as the case unfolded in real time. The new perspective on the backstory was illuminating.

Still not sure what the "sleuths" actually did.

Yeah, I agree with that. I think it shows how people can become emotionally invested in something like this, dedicate massive energy to it, feel very much a part of it but, at the end of the day, have minimal control/influence over what actually occurs.



Kind of like being a sports fan in a way.

I think they were able help the Montreal police by linking him to both the murder and the kitten videos. It seemed like the police found the evidence from the rented apartment that tied Magnotta to the murder, but may not have been aware he had anything to do with the kitten videos? Initially the police and media thought Magnotta was the victim, not the killer.

The docuseries was definitely drawn out too long given it focused mainly on the Facebook group not really doing much.
