The only issue I have with The Shield is the theme song. It is a blatant ripoff of Down with the King from Run DMC.

On season 2 of My Hero Academia. Great anime.
Is there a preferred site for finding Anime to stream? I haven't seen much on Netflix. Just go to Amazon or somewhere else?

I'm curious about Parasyte.

I'm not sure if Netflix has all seasons of Attack on Titan.

The quality of actors that had a run on The Shield is astounding.
You’re in for a ride. That show just never lets up all the way to the end. It really did open the door for shows that followed I’m sure you started to see how many shows got inspiration from it and the antiheroes it put put on screen weekly. The cast is one of my favorite of all time and also the people that would show up in single episodes you would see them working in other shows for years to come. Sons of Anarchy had a lot of people from The Shield.

I subscribe to Funimation now (now owned by Sony I believe) it’s about 5 a month, and worth it if you like anime. There is still a lot of good anime on Netflix.
There is only S1 of attack on Titan on Netflix at the moment.

Yeah I didn't want to start a show then have to hunt around for the next season.

I might checkout Funimation.

I love it. Just started watching Attack on Titan season 2, which I thought I had seen and I hadn’t lol
It’s epic.
Funimation is great, I think they do a 30 day trial, so give it a bash! :banana:

Nearly finished stranger things season 3. Don’t worry I won’t post spoilers :grin:

I am enjoying it but imo s2 and 3 can’t beat s1. It was fresh and new. Don’t get me wrong s2 and 3 are good but don’t think they are as good as s1.

Also one small thing bugs me. EVERY TIME 11 uses her powers, even on the smallest scale, it has to show you her having a nose bleed. I get it, we all get it. We got it in season 1 and 2, we don’t have to be spoon fed that yep every time she uses her physic abilities she has a nose bleed. Rant over lol

i dont think they are showing it for the nose bleed lol i think thats just the consequence of showing her, to let you know she is the one doing things.

Such immense power would have physical consequences for the human body, even small uses. It would be weird if it just stopped happening.

Finished S3 of Stranger Things over the weekend. I don't remember S2 like at all, but definitely thought this was a much better effort than 2.

HOPPER :( :( :( :(

Finished the Chernobyl series last night. Excellent show. Pretty scary seeing the damage radiation can do to the human body.

The Shield (Season 4) - Good
Season 4 is probably my favorite. I was very surprised at Anthony Anderson’s role he was really good. Plus Glenn Close it was a winner. Wait till you see who shows up in season 5 in a very memorable role throughout.

I finished it a few days ago. For some reason weird reason I haven’t wanted to talk about it. It hit me in the gut. What amazed me were those that knew they were probably going to their death but still wanted to help. They’re heroes that never should be forgotten. F*** that government and those in charge.

Stranger Things 3 - Eh! Didn't like this one so much. The second half was ok but had plenty of annoying things.

I started rewatching Lost. I do it every few years since it ended. Boy that three part finale to the first season, amazing television. All the character goodbyes, the launching of the raft, and what the hell is going to be down in the hatch? This is one of the shows I wish I could experience for the first time again.

I’m curious how you expect the show to end with two seasons to go or how you would like to see it end before you see it. Send a PM if you have any thoughts.

Stranger Things:

Watching Stranger Things has always been somewhat of a treat for me, having been the same age at that particular point in time as these characters, but season 3 is on a whole nother level. You see, I moved to an Atlanta suburb in the year 1985, the very same year this season takes place. It turns out that much of the season is filmed in Gwinnett Place Mall (taking place of the fictional Starcourt Mall). This is where I frequented from the age of 11-13, and in fact, the arcade there, was the first place I played such greats as 720, Paperboy, Marble Madness, Afterburner, Atari Return of the Jedi, etc... I also eventually had my very first kiss outside the mall's food court entrance.

I'm sure that everyone has a surreal moment or 2 in their life, but the entirety of Stranger Things has been like one weird trip into my head, with a crazy crescendo at the 3rd season. I don't know when my subconscious ever started producing shows, but it kind of creeps me out just as much as the nostalgia factor, at the very least.

Still watching Farscape season 1. Think I'm halfway through. If that is the case, might take a quick break and watch something on Netflix. I got a free 30 days back starting July 1 and haven't used it at all yet, so figure I should at least get a free season of something out of it. Most likely going to be Stranger Things season 2. There are a few other shows I wouldn't mind watching it, but I'm pretty slow at watching TV shows. It's definitely at the end of my free time entertrainment list so Farscape for instance I only watch one or two episodes a week. Hard to justify paying $12 or whatever Netflix is now a month to watch a show. Still have Amazon Prime and Farscape is really the only show I've watched that is a part of that, so really that's just another waste of money honestly. I have Hulu Live for over a year now and the only show from there I've watched is the Looming Tower. At least I get my money out of regular TV channels/sports.
