We tried Alias Grace but my husband fell asleep during the first episode and hasn't been interested in watching it since then. I'm kind of bummed about that because I'm a huge Margaret Atwood fan and I love the book Alias Grace.
We also tried the Alienist and again my husband couldn't get into it.
I may pick up these series on my own and start watching them while I walk.
Sunshine, thatís probably a good idea. My hubby and I have a lot of common viewing tastes, and still, there are just some tv shows we watch separately, like Queer Eye for me, and some of his cartoon shows for him. Speaking of Queer Eye, I loved most of season two, except for the last episode where they made over a town mayor. I hope they cleared it with an ethics committee, bc I just find it yucky that a politician got personal benefit from the show. I know it helped his public image and all that, but the Fab Five wouldíve been better off helping another more deserving individual.
I also watched season two of the Tick, and that was really good. Weíre so fortunate we have all these tv options at our fingertips now. What would we do without them?
A bunch of my girlfriends recommended "Good Girls" on Netflix to me so I started watching it, it's quite good and easy watching! It's female centric which I love, focused on 3 women and the hi-jinx they get upto to make money. I'm only 3-4 episodes in but would recommend so far.
Well, Iím almost embarrassed to come here and admit this, but it is a thread for trashy and addictive television. I was scrolling through the cable guide late last night when I discovered that Dr Sandra Lee, aka Dr Pimple Popper from YouTube has her own cable show on TLC. Sheís a dermatologist and skin cancer surgeon who removes things from people, crazy things. I thought, can I even look at this show? What am I doing? Curiosity got the better of me. I clicked on the channel, closed one eye, and watched her remove a lipoma the size of a human brain from this guyís back. I was hooked! I couldnít look away. Itís funny. Itís heartwarming. Itís educational. Itís really gross. LOL These people have been suffering with the pain and shame of these enormous lumps and bumps, sometimes for years, and she changes their lives with an office visit. You get the backstory, the procedure, and the follow-up months later. I warn you, however, that nothing is blurred out. Donít watch it while youíre eating.
Lol Skwigg. The Pimple Popper's YouTube channel is so oddly cathartic and soothing for me. My hubby walked in on me one day while I was viewing one of her more mundane (ha) clips of a blackhead removal, and his immediate response was all, "WTF??". It's admittedly not for everyone.
Is the Good Place coming back for season 3? I really got into that show, and also want to see Trial & Jury. The conventional TV networks still churn out things I want to watch, apparently.
I will admit that I've been mildly intrigued that that channel exists, because I think it's (to some degree) human nature to want to see such things. But so far I have stayed away. I'm not very squeamish at all, but I think I just don't want to go down the rabbit hole. Haha!
