Yeah, it's excellent. Only thing that annoyed me was they didn't go back or challenge her about her forcing the guy with the injured back to continue practice when he was weeping in pain. Surely that's an insurance no-no?


I just saw that episode today - it was insane that she made him carry on, and that he carried on. It’s all a bit cult-like in that regard.

It's a bit of gentle ribbing Zok. A bit of fun. A whimsical, nudge nudge kind of joke to suggest you might be a bit dodgy watching 'Junior Cheerleaders'. 

 

Jesus


Yeah...it’s fucking weird, you fucking weirdo. Get fucked.

The Two Popes


I second this in particular - it’s fantastic, a real grin-fest. Watching Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce talking to each other for 2 hours is a rare pleasure. The characters are really well drawn and it’s very funny too. One comes out the end with a real sense of respect for the 2 men and wanting to spend more time in their company. 
 

And if I may offer my own recommendation of a Netflix original - Marriage Story. This movie runs the full gamut of human emotion. Not unlike The Two Popes, it offers an intimate portrayal of the relationship between 2 people which starts bad but ends.. if not good at least amicable! Scarlett Johannson and Adam Driver have never been better and Noah Baumbach’s script is some of his finest work.

Binged Tiger King today. Felt it ran out of steam by the final couple of episodes, but episodes 1-4 are deliriously good. Was always going to be tricky maintaining that pace.

Screwball documentary is on Netflix about doping in sport. It’s pretty great. 

 

That’s a fun doc, another one with ‘they can’t be real?!’ characters.

Really enjoyed Tiger king so far but it's definitely cheeky in the way it presents the revelations. All documentaries are somewhat manipulative in the editing but this goes a bit too far for my taste.

 

Just finished episode 4 and it is declining in quality; feeling a bit jumbled now. Hope it picks up at the end.

I liked Tiger King all the way through, and the way they presented it was great imho.

 

I think the reason they did it the way they did is because they wanted it to be entertaining, which it is.

Anybody watching Cheer, about the Navarro junior college cheerleading squad training for the national championships? It’s really good.

I watched it on the basis that it's produced by the same team who did Last Chance U, which is brilliant. I have a real soft spot for small town Americana and both LCU and Cheer scratch that itch to perfection. Extra credit for Cheer in that I could watch it with my girlfriend. 

 

@ZOK what I'm saying is, if you liked Cheer, watch Last Chance U.
