If you're sheepish about people seeing what you're watching, Altered Carbon has quite a lot of tits and that in it.

Godless has some wobbly willies too.

Certainly sounds like Dark is the one.

 

I loved Ozark, thought The Sinner was dreadful, and haven't seen Godless.

Godless is superb. 

 

Curious as to why you thought The Sinner was so bad? The end is a little unsatisfactory but incredible performances from Biel and Pullman.

Finished Wild, Wild Country a little while ago. Cracking.

 

I've watched 3 episodes thus far and the editing is putting me off. It feels like I am watching an hour long trailer. I will finish it as it is a compelling story but the fast cuts and brief talking head elements are something I find difficult to watch. It doesn't seem like a documentary - it feels like a mockumentary because of it.

Finished The People Vs OJ Simpson last night, incredible TV.

 

Yes! And It’s even more amazing at the end when they show how they have created virtual doubles of everyone involved - except for flipping CGJr, who looks more like Kramer in that episode when he turned his apartment into a smoking den than OJ Simpson.

I didnt get to the end, I was bored way before then.

 

I loved the concept, I just felt that there wasnt enough in there to string it out over a full series. I think it would have worked much better as a film. I agree with you about Pullman.

 

I watched episode 1 of Godless yesterday, thought it was great.

The updated and re-visited true-crime documentary series The Staircase is on Netflix today.

Haven't watched the original episodes since it was released back in 2004.

This series has the original episodes plus an additional three which director Jean-Xavier de Lestrade goes back to interview Peterson.

If you have never heard of the show, best to go in blind, but otherwise here is the trailer for the new updated series:

I never even noticed that it cuts like that. It seemed like a well-balanced documentary depsite that. 'Seemed like' because there was obviously a lot more to tell.

 

Strangely, the final episode got me rather emotional when they looked back at how the dream they had built died. I thought it was rather nice that Sheala...

... now owned and ran a care home despite seeming to have little in the way of guilt and blaming everyone else. I hope there's not some nefarious tax dodge reasons of whatever behind it...

Godless is well shot and produced. However, it is way too predictable while viewing. You always know what is going to happen before it happens. I think it's because it gives away too much in episode one, then proceeds to elaborate on it for another six episodes. Good, not great.

Yes, also the shootout was terrible, a bit of an anti-climax that last episode.

Really enjoyed The Staircase. Loved reading subsequently online about the

They’ve released Planet Earth 2 in 4K, but not HDR. Which is interesting. So you get some of the sharpness, but lose the colours...

Most stories are fairly predictable really. It’s all about the journey and the characters. Godless is pretty amazing I think.

Kind of baffling because HDR is what makes the series seem like such a giant leap in visual prowess, not the camera resolution.

Only because people choose to view predictable content. I could recommend to you 100 masterpieces where I could pause it at the hour mark and you'd never guess where it was going. People want to be comforted by predictability.

A bit, but I suspect they’re limited by what the various packages available were. There are scenes (iguanas) where the sheer resolution does tell.

I don't want to seem to be (or actually be) comforted by predictability, so please  give me your first 10 recommendations to get me started. You can deliver the other 90 at a later date. 

 

Genuine request, I'm interested in what you think are unpredictable masterpieces. And I WILL be pausing after an hour to predict an outcome if it's something new to me.

 

And I thought Godless was amazing as well. Not predictable at all, apart from it having some of the usual Western themes going on.

Ok Im 5 episodes in and I don't want any spoilers but I just need to check my feelings about this case against someone else so if anyone has seen this - spoilers-

 

This guy seems guilty to me, his behaviour and personality and just everything, the evidence is a bit iffy and it's pretty crazy that there was an incident in his past that was similar and they exhumed that body, but man he just seems kind of narcissistic and way too much like a Columbo suspect for me. Did anyone else feel this way? Please no spoilers beyond episode 5, the case has basically just started

I’m on the same episode as you and feel the exact same way. Not entirely gripped so far but I’m hoping for some twists and turns that flip the whole case soon.

 

im curious about how the documentary came about, I don’t think it’s explained why there is a film crew present and why the suspect agreed to it. I don’t want to google it as I will inevitably spoil the whole thing.
