Good call on Fargo - that's a good, little, show - pretty decent writing and I'm digging the aesthetic

Re: Watcha Watchin'?

Fargo season 3 is very good. Fargo season 2 was, in my opinion, a damn near masterpiece.

Yeah, for sure, I'm like two episodes away from finishing it — real brutal and great depiction of the midwest in the 70's - really good at capturing how lame everyone (most people) are


there's a lot there, which I don't want to sound like a blogger for the AV club talking about it on here like this -

but I  especially liked the opening of the third episode with the Indian pop music, with the split screens and there's a sequence where they even use the song from Big Lebowski, that part from when Lebowski gets drugged in the iconic Lebowski surreal dream sequence also

kinda also reminds me of the Cohen movie, the Man Who Wasn't There, with the Space Alien connection too - it's like the expansive Cohen universe all in there

anyways, I've kinda binged glossed watched over it, probably should take it in a little slower - late in watching this as, its been out a couple years already, and I've seen its won numerous awards

Big shout out for the new Anne of Green Gables series available on Netflix.

It's called Anne with an E and if anyone watched the original series from around the 90s or so, and loved it, like I did, what's great is that this is truly just as good. You don't have to pick sides.

Great series to watch with kids — maybe girls more than boys but I don't want to sound like some old, doddery, sexist retrograde. I just try to be somewhat realist. Somewhat — most of the time I'm relatively untethered.

Also it has a great visual opener, and a nice soundtrack. Opener song is a lovely Tragically Hip song.

For anyone who identifies with the struggles of feeling like a misfit, and the trial of wee lil kids, this show is a marvelous gem. I'm so into it!

Re: Watcha Watchin'?

I just watched the Netflix show "Friends From College".   Some good Pavement in there.  Does just naming the songs count as SPOILERS?  If so, then consider that your warning...

The opening credits of the first episode are set to "Cut Your Hair", and the closing credits of the final episode are set to "Gold Soundz".

A lot of people really seem to hate this show, it's getting tons of bad press, but I enjoyed it.  Yes, the characters are self-absorbed, illogical, somewhat despicable assholes to each other, but at the same time, there was a lot of drama in college and I myself didn't remain friends with many people from college, and I imagine if I had, my life would have been constant drama much like this show.  It seemed at least somewhat realistic to me, except that I couldn't identify with how wealthy all of the characters seemed to be haha.

It had some cool tunes and a lot of really, REALLY funny scenes, so I'm very glad I watched it and I probably liked it a lot more than most people seemed to.

Making my way through some older classics :

Curb your enthusiasm
The wire
The Larry sanders show.

Fargo was excellent this year. Along with better call Saul the Americans and Silicon Valley.  Top notch. The golden age of tv continues ....

Based on your post, I tried this one on my picky family.  During the first episode, no one even moved. The boys loved it every bit as much. It's a big hit here.

I am the only one who has read the book. I'd forgotten just how good it is! There's so much to it (And the show really does it justice). I had been considering it with some of your other suggestions in Watcha Readin' thread for our next "reading time" book. Now I am definitely going to read it, but because of the show, I may put it off a bit because I don't want to read it concurrently.   
 
Thank you.

Awesome — enjoy both the book and the new series!

Re: Watcha Watchin'?

Highly recommend The Americans. I don't know many people who watch it but it's one of the better shows I've watched.

I just looked it up. It sounds like something I would like a whole whole lot. I don't think it's streaming at hulu or Netflix though, so I will have to wait.

the only other song i recognize is a Samiam song from the nineties

kinda fits their ironic/slacker/wasteoid aesthetic - I'm not  nec a fan, but this is probably as good as current skate vids get imo - a lot of New York/La skatin' - kids who hang out with Chloe Sevingyyy outside of Supreme

my buddy just gave me a copy of a new Texas (Indie) skate-video, where every song on the soundtrack is (brace yourself) . . . . . . *Radiohead*!!!!    //// sounds cooler than it is (and even saying that is quite generous of me) -But, I'm gonna have to give it a major double thumbs down -

Re: Watcha Watchin'?

I spent some time yesterday checking out the "Classics" on Thrasher's YouTube account, pretty sweet. I was most into it in the early 2ks and so Chomp on This and Yeah Right are just total classics for me. I also loved Real to Reel because Gonz had a really great vintage Gonz part where he's just flipping through handrails and doing a lotta wacky shit that seems less technical but has great style and totally rocks.
