Earlier last month, Netflix released their take on the ol' 80s Sci-Fi Horror, with little delightful sprinkles of Twin Peaks, Stephen King and Steven Spielberg on top. It's gotten pretty big recently, so I thought maybe there could be a topic of discussion for those who have seen it here.

I just finished watching it last night, and I was really impressed.

It's on my to-do list! I too have heard wonderful things. Twin Peaks, Stephen King, SS? Dayuuum. I'll take some of that any day. Just about anything Twin Peaks-esque is a winner.

 

I applaud Netflix for trying to tackle each and every genre. From stand-up comedy, to supernatural, to action, and even to anime. They are getting huge. Something for everybody and it seems like they film at an incredible pace.

 

I, however, am not really into a lot of their shows. They just don't spike an interest in me, outside of Daredevil.

 

I want to like Hemlock Grove because that sort of thing is right up my alley, but they messed up the first three episodes and I don't know, I just can't bring myself to give it another chance. Like how dare they?

 

I want to like Between too, but the main actors are starting to bug me and season two is becoming too predictable.

It's definitely a good shout. Eight episodes long too, so it won't be a huge investment of time. The only shows I've really seen are Daredevil, Jessica Jones (which I believe you mentioned you weren't too into, if I'm not mistaken) and Stranger Things. I've enjoyed all of them immensely, and I've heard good stuff about other shows. It's definitely ambitious.

You are not mistaken.

Also, I heard House of Cards was good too. That's Netflix too, right? It's just one of those that don't interest me. Never cared for politics.

I just finished this over the weekend and it's was AMAZING. Hands down the best Sci Fi I've watched this year. Makes me want to re-watch all of John Carpenter's stuff.

I started this last week (finally). It's pretty great. Only three episodes in, but I enjoy it lots already. AND, the music rocks.

I have watched about half of the first season.

It is pretty decent, if a bit slow.


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

I think I read this wrong. When all of you were referring to "Twin Peak's", are you talking about the breastaurant chain?
