    Amazon doesn't get a lot of talk, but they just released two new seasons of some pretty good shows...Sneaky Pete and Bosch.

    I binged Bosch's new season last week and it continues to be a very solid detective show. It kind of reminds me of Dexter minus the nonsense. Just started Sneaky Pete's new season and the first two episodes have been really good.

    Yes it is! Also forgot to even mention that the main character, played by Hader, is from Cleveland. He wears a WMMS shirt in the pilot. And while it's really good and I understand most shows end up in LA or New York and end up being about acting/show business, it woulda been cool to see a hitman series in the rust belt as well (a la Fargo).

    Hader is from Cleveland? that's awesome...He is a cool dude.

    This show is probably my go to casual show. Just makes my mood better...and I love the acting by everyone tbh.

    The blonde girl also makes watching this show a pleasure(Although she is fucked up on the inside lol)

    Hader is from Oklahoma, but the character Barry is from Cleveland.

    I'm not really sure why they chose Cleveland, but Berg and Hader apparently initially wrote the show set in Cleveland but then realized they'd have to film there instead of staying in LA with their kids and nice weather.

    Hader was in the movie with Lebron, so that may have had something to do with it.

    I really tried liking The Expanse. The seasons are on Amazon Prime. It feels hollow though.

    so the girl died from an organic entity that came from some unknown species that will likely take ten more seasons to find out about, and they got it from or associated with ANOTHER unknown species that will likely take twenty more seasons to find out about?

    Also, almost everyone is a scumbag. So it's hard to care what happens to anyone.

    I mean, did you think they'd just resolve everything in one season? The whole series is about how the existence of this alien protomolecule completely changes the future of the human race, and they only just discover the thing in the first season.

    Also, I believe only nine novels are planned for the series (seven are currently out, and the books should be done by the end of 2019), and the show has seemed to move at roughly one season per novel, which means you're looking at nine to ten seasons max, and that's assuming they don't streamline anything.

    At any rate, I'd recommend sticking with it. The first and second books were probably two of the weakest in the series (lots of necessary set-up), and some absolutely bat shit crazy stuff starts happening later on. If I recall, the third book was pretty great, and some of the later ones are even better.

    The oa is frustrating.

    Is an interesting premise but there are so many mistakes in the writing

    The lead actress created it. Seems like she had way too much power and I think a lot of goofy shit made it much further than it should have
