    True. One of most enjoyable TV show on Amazon Prime. The ridiculous story layout was extraordinary hilarious and sad in the same time. Sometime life can have so many moving parts that at some point they might collide against ourself. I watched first season many many times. It gave me so much strength when I keep telling myself "it could be even worse" lollll

    Watched the first ep of HBO's Chernobyl miniseries. Overall really nice, the scenery is extremely faithfully recreated down to minute details. Some of the dialog was a tad off, but didn't keep me from being excited about what comes next.

    I thought most were good, but some episodes were not great.
    Overall though, pretty great show, very unique.

    It is better than the vast majority of the garbage on Netflix.

    Started Fleabag it's is such a funny TV show if you are into the 4th wall breaks and other stuff shown in the trailer

    Watch with caution (spoilers for more than the first two episodes) also the show is a bit on the NSFW side:

    A bit off topic, but Quentin Tarantino's latest is coming. Pitt and DiCaprio together = this can't fail.

    Just finished watching Chernobyl. GOT notwithstanding, that is the best 5 hours of TV I have watched in a long while.

    Highly recommend!

    I didn't watch Chernobyl. Heard only the best about it, might check it out sometime.
    If someone wants a bit of info about the thing, check this out:

    Guy understands that it's just a tv drama but compares it with real life stuff. A lot of info on Fukushima too. Should be an interesting half hour watch.

    ~7 months ago I got the biggest OLED TV LG made in 2018 (77" C8) for a very large media/family room. This TV has changed the way I view television. It only gets Netflix, the one streaming source I have. Due to the extreme visual quality of this thing, I find myself more & more drawn into episodic video/TV. It's like eye candy. I find myself liking some material as much for how it looks, as for its content-quality.

    One show that ticks both boxes is PERSON OF INTEREST (5 seasons ending in 2016). It's not even 4K material (it's upscaled 1080i), but looks extremely good. The episodes are the video equivalent of comfort food. Love the show. Taraji P. Henson really excels here.

    Another show I like a lot is LIMITLESS. I expected to hate it: it's a retread of a film, plus the actor who plays the main character is perpetually on the verge of "acting cute." Yet it worked for me all day long. The co-lead, Jennifer Carpenter, has really grown on me--great acting plus a wonderful face...every camera angle shows something different. This show may or may not be 4K, but looks quite amazing & is very entertaining.

    Governments using data mining + machine learning, in addition to massive collection of worldwide communications, will lead to bad things.
