I've not had a chance to watch it but is The Man in the High Castle any good? I saw a commercial for it and thought it looked interesting.

We put it on a couple weeks ago while I was doing some stuff for work and what I saw was pretty good.  I've never read the book and I felt like there were some things I was missing, but Rob is a huge Philips K. Dick fan and he was absolutely engrossed in it.

There's a very, very slight possibility of a movie, but I'm pretty sure the series is over.  Which I'm actually fine with, because the way the finale ended was perfect.
It was but I miss it. You know how it is.
Having said that, I'd rather listen to Papa Roach than GG Allin

I might have to check it out. Thanks!

I'm seeing Noel Fielding in Chicago in March. Making the 5-6 hour drive from Ohio. Can't fucking wait.

Chicago is the closest :-(

Not surprised, Atlanta is in the south. and people outside US must be aware that a significant majority of the  'Murica! culture exists more or is more vocal in the south. Atlanta can be a really liberal, awesome city though, for what its worth

Highly recommend Making a Murderer on Netflix.

Kind of their version of The Jinx, mixed with Rectify and Serial.

if you're looking for random, ridiculous yet entertaining, i'd recommend Banshee.

This is one of the best choreographed fight scenes I've seen since the opening to Kill Bill 1.

no one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, or invented literally to get out of hell Antonin Artaud

Holy shit, I just watched the 6 new episodes of peep show and I don't think I laughed that hard at any television show so far this year.

Best early Xmas gift.

The new season of it's always sunny is maybe the best to date. That Water Park episode was infreakingcredible.

Also watching santa clarita diet, Taboo, Baskets, and man seeking woman. All are good.

I am really enjoying the new season of Better Call Saul. If this season keeps going on the same track, it will be the best one yet in my opinion. I don't really have a desire to rewatch old episodes unlike Breaking Bad which I could watch any day. There are certain shows that I like to rewatch and some I don't. As great is the Wire was, I never went back and rewatched episodes.
Having said that, I'd rather listen to Papa Roach than GG Allin

I highly recommend Catastrophe on Amazon Prime. The third season goes up in three days.
