Anyone watched Unsolved, about investigating the murders of Tupac and Biggie Smalls? Really good tv.
Nup.

But I will now.

Have you watched the 'The Defiant Ones'? re Jimmy Iovine/Dre ? Awesome, on Netflix.

Briefly covers the whole west coast east coast rap war as Jimmy Iovine got pulled into that.

Yep. Two thumbs up. Enjoyed both immensely.

This thread feels a bit like passing the baton in a relay race. So I'll have a go now.

Anyone seen 'The Path'?

Aaron Paul (Jesse from Breaking Bad) plays the lead. Really dug the first two seasons. Definitely one of the better shows I've binged on recently.

Back in the 90s me and a couple of friends had an ongoing conversation about how to build a religion ala L Ron Hubbard and scientology. It sounds alot like this tv show. Even down to the pumping people full of an Ayahuasca analogue (wallaby fat and Acacia bark) - someone mentioned that they all go to peru and binge on it in this show.

Today is the last Episode of an underrated US Sitcom in Australia, 'The Middle'.

Easy viewing, funny family situations with some strugglers.

Have a hole in my life since the Americans finished.

Anyone got any high-quality, dense viewing they can recommend.
I watch a lot...like a LOT. But havent since the WC has been on.

I do like Goliath but havent watched the 2nd season yet. Billy Bob Thornton plays the main character.

Americans was good. Not the best but ti was a good watch. Halt & Catch Fire was another good 80s and early 90s show that brought back some good memories for me since I grew up in 80s/90s.

You gotta get into Goliath 2

First two eps are meh but there is something so unexpected and disgusting at the end of ep 3 that ramps it right up through to the end where I say it is better than s01.

My best of 2018 so far has been Season 2 of Handmaids Tale

Will win everything at the Emmys

Riveting, disturbing, great acting, storyline and cinematography of a level rarely seen off the big screen

Every ep was like watching an Oscar Movie

Watched first four eps of Lost in Space on Netflix.

New twist on some characters.

A rollicking adventure.

Lubbing it!
I retract this

So annoyed I still have not watched final episode

Major disappointment

Wat they did to Robot character was so far from the original that it was poor
