    Hope there's more Glow to come. I haven't googled to verify. (Wikipedia says it is renewed for a fourth and final season, so perhaps this summer!)

    Tiger King bonus episode is what I expected, I read enough to know what you're getting by watching it. Not horrible, but if you never see it, you're not missing out on any WTF moments.

    Working on S3 of Wire, S9 of Curb and current season of Saul as it unfolds.

    I know there's a reason Netflix gives you all of a season at one time, and plenty of people have ongoing memberships, but wouldn't it be in their best interest to spread out 10 or 13 episodes of a lot of their originals over a period of weeks? I've never read an explanation why dropping two per week for 5 or 7 weeks doesn't make sense.

    Money Heist (Seasons 1 & 2 only)
    Designated Survivor
    All American
    Tiger King (disturbingly weird)

    Binge watching isn’t really for me. IMO there’s often a “jump the shark“ incident, which is aggravating.

    I can see both sides. It worked for Disney with the Mandalorian, doing the weekly release. I assume that they will continue to be the company that does the entire season at once while Disney will release weekly when they have new shows. IIRC, the only shows Netflix has done the weekly release with are the talk show type things they have with Joel McHale and Hasan Minhaj because they were trying to keep those more topical. I think Netflix has so many regular TV shows, both their own and and the ones they buy from overseas, that doing it weekly would be too much for them and people would just forget about them.

    My issue with the show is usually that I am hyped for them - The Witcher, Umbrella Academy - because I am familiar with the source material, and then I am disappointed when I watch the series.

    FWIW @stlguy197239 - I was binge watching because I was on a free one month trial. Yes, I’m that cheap.

    I started & stopped watching a few (unnamed) series because I got bored/couldn’t get into it within 2 episodes.

    I’m a sports fan, so I can only watch so much Netflix before I go bonkers. I’m gonna exhaust my Prime Video next.

    Maybe you can get a free HBO trial. If so, check out Ali & Cavett: The Tale of the Tapes.

    Sometime around 1971, Ali lived in Cherry Hill, NJ, a couple towns away from me. One of my buddies was tipped off by his Aunt that Ali was going to be at a medical office nearby, so we hopped on our bikes (I was 12) and waited outside for about an hour. Sure enough, the Champ came out and sparred with us for a half minute, signed a couple autographs, and took off.

    "Entourage." Never seen it and began it last night. 6 episodes down. 90 to go. Couple of days ago I binged all the "Tornado Chasers." The old "Dallas" is free on Prime right now and considering that one.

    Other than the original "Law & Order " and "Hawaii Five-0" I've never had much desire to binge watch. But desperate times mean desperate measures !!

    Currently watching the new season (6) of Bosch (on Prime).
    This show is like cocaine - it's really hard to not watch the "next episode", so it takes real discipline to make the season last as long as possible!

    I am truly late to this series but Once Upon a Time is phenomenal--the way they connect all the fairytales out there into one story where they all interact and take you on an adventure. It's a brilliant show and I am constantly fascinated with how they put it together. It really makes you think. I did not grow up super into fairytales but watching this show showed me just how many I knew/was exposed to. Belle is my favorite character. Though she is not a main character, she is a very major character and her personality is so cool. What makes this series so dynamic is that every major character is a strong character; the acting skills are out of this world.

    Actually taking advantage of free 30 day trials of CBS and Hulu to watch stuff that is not available on Netflix.

    I signed up for Hulu for their 30 days free and decided to keep it for now. I got their ad free for $12. I watched Handmaid's Tale and Castle Rock.

    Right after I watched Handmaid's Tale is when the stay at home stuff started, felt a little eerie thinking of the show lol.

    Both shows are worth a watch in my opinion.

    I'm not disciplined. The first episode was a bit sluggish but it took off after that. It is so well acted. The daughter is a little too bitchy. Now we will probably have to wait more than a year with filming halted.

    Finished Tiger King a week ago. It was OK but not as great as you might have thought based on social media buzz over it.

    Watching Waco now and I'm enjoying it. It definitely tells the story from a different perspective than what I got watching it go down live on CNN back in the 90s.

    Haha I was literally just typing "I just finished the Tiger King and it was pretty good entertainment. With that being said, I absolutely hated every single person on that show. Currently on Waco and I love it. Who knew David Koresh could rock out like he did?"

    Finished season 3 of Ozark. The ending was satisfying.

    During season three, I saw two verified Lake of the Ozarks locations, both water towers. The overhead lake shots might about been the actual lake, but I question if lake the casino is placed on is. The lake isn't that calm in the summer. Local word on the street the Crappie are on the banks spawning now, ie jumping in the boat. Seems early to me.

    Ozark is filmed almost exclusively in Georgia. Mainly outside of Atlanta but also some in the Savannah area.
