Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt?

I've given it a 5 episode Netflix test-run and I think...this is gonna be OK.

I mean, shit, anyone can put up with 10 seconds of anything, right?

It's in the top tier of Netflix shows.

I just plowed through the first season of "The Good Place" and am starting season 2. If you are not familiar, watch it from the beginning before anyone spoils it for you.

I've made it to the last 5 episodes of Breaking Bad, but the last couple of seasons are one helluva trudge for me. I've come around to agreeing with the Skyler character's opinion from earlier in the show and been wishing the cancer would come back and off Walt, the quicker the better for everyone he's apparently determined to drag down with him.

I mean, the quality of the writing and acting and the critical praise for it is deserved, in my opinion. But the emotional and ethical heart of the show just keeps getting deeper, darker and more repulsive.

I'm tempted to skip to the last episode to see how/how many of everyone gets deaded and call it good enough.

Yeah, it's mighty good but it's mighty dark too.

I loved that show, until the last episode.  Iíve never heard anyone agree, but I think itís sappy bullshit (though maybe dark sappy bullshit?).  Iíd love to hear what you think.

Finished off the last episode of Stranger Things 2 last night.
That was satisfying.

I didn't like it as much as the first season. They had too much money for special effects this time. But still the only American TV show I've made it through two seasons of since... I can't even remember.

If you already agree it only gets worse!  Seriously, fuck that show.

It's in my Netflix queue but I'm not sure how serious I should take it.
Worth the dive?

I keep trying to get to it because it's been highly recommended.
Too much media, too little free time.

Plus, I'm in the middle of series 3 for Peaky Blinders and those murderous fucks have my attention.

Watched a couple of those, seemed more intense than what I wanted at the time, but looked great.

I watched the first 7 on Netflix. About to see season 8 soon. It's not a perfect show, but I enjoy it. Also, lots of titties, which is nice.
