The wife signed us up for PBS masterpiece app, I didn't really think it was my style, but I gave it a go for her. I'm pleasantly suprised at how entertaining some of these shows are. So far we've finished Poldark, Hotel Portofino, The Durrells in Corfu, Victoria, Forsyte Saga, and now currently watching All Creatures Great and Small. The app is pretty cheap ($6 monthly) for all the content you get imo.

I watched Baby Reindeer yesterday on Netflix.

Bit of a mindfuck but tackles lots of social issues.

Not something I'd usually enjoy, but I think the writer/director did a great job on this.

I am 2 episodes in. It's Ok but can either get weird for the sake of weird or make no sense. I don't understand how we went from Vault to above ground and above ground is apparently just fine.

I think the world above isn't totally destroyed everywhere. Some places are less hit than others and start to show signs of recovery.

I'm guessing you never played the games. It's a lot more fun if you played the games and can see all the stuff from the game show up.

Not sure why you are confused though. The world outside is an apocalyptic wasteland. They say it's been like 200 years or something since the nukes went off so yeah some people survived and have rebuilt to some extent but I'm not sure where you get "just fine" from.

Unless you are confused with the scenes where they cut to the past before the nukes went off and before the vaults were built.

I enjoyed it. I do think it got better further into it. However I'm also a big fan of the games so.

Yeah I never did play the games but I love my sci-fi. I got confused because it seemed like the surface was barely inhabitable, if at all, then suddenly we cut to a sort of army camp where they just go about their daily lives, no radiation suit etc.

I'm surprised Al is still intrigued about Fallout. I lost interest in the pilot. Just too flimsy and disjointed for me.

They had too many side stories going on for sure. That's the writers fault though.. Set design, acting, characters, props, etc. were well done though. Hoping for the 2nd season to be a more tidy.

I tried to give it another shot, just couldn't. Too many empty gaps. Amazed some ppl made it through the whole season, I couldn't even finish 2 episodes.

Different strokes.

Pretty sure I saw it mentioned here, but can't find the post. Just finished watching Severance... pretty sure I saw the trailer for this a while back and though meh, however I really enjoyed it a lot more than I expected. I think Apple TV has some of the best shows.

Nothing really to watch right now, just watching my "junk food" shows like Star Trek Discovery latest season, also still making my way through For All Mankind... I like it, but it's not like a must binge all seasons right away.

I cancelled it last July.

We recently re-subscribed to Netflix and Hulu after cancelling those. I will cancel them again when we get sick of their content. See no reason to pay monthly if we aren't watching them.

Guys, I'm curious, how much does it cost monthly for all your subscriptions/channels/etc?
