I only watched Foundation because I got a free 6 months to Crapple+. It isn't good. They honestly are doing the best they can trying to fit the books into a series, but it isn't working. The books are just too different. There's no real character development in them, so they basically are adding backstory to characters and making a show of it. The books spanned multiple generations and characters were never that central to anything for any real amount of time.

If anyone ever wants to try and properly film Foundation, they need to accept that there's no central characters through the story except one. The "characters" are the Foundation and humanity itself. You can see that the people who did this series tried to keep close to the books where possible, but they aren't.

Watching the PTI 20. Crazy it has been 20 years I’ve been watching since the beginning. Started when I was late in High School and at that time I consumed a lot of ESPN everyday. I never tried to miss an episode throughout my life Tony and Mike has kept me smiling, laughing, agreeing, disagreeing, and above all entertained my late teen to adult life. I’d say PTI and The Best Damn Sports Show Period changed the landscape of sports shows going forward.

Only murders in the building on HULU, Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez. It's a bit of a slow burn but fun if you are a fan of Martin and Short you should check it out.

It's amazing.
Avoid spoilers and turn up the sound as it has a incredible soundtrack.

That's a big part of what hooked me right away. I'm a huge fan of music, worked in a record shop for 10 years best job ever, and first song I"m like "I don't know this song, but that Neil Diamond and it's awesome"

Yeah, I really don't want to even know what I'm about to watch, the vibe is awesome right away. Thanks again!

Chappelle stand-up was great because I know what he's doing, but I still need to watch it 10 more times over the next year to REALLY get it.

Chappelle won't watch true comedy freedom die on his watch no matter what lines he has to punch through.

It's funny how people put him up on such a comedy pedestal, I remember in the 90's when he used to host stand up shows on MTV and he was terrible lol.

He is the best standup ever. Eddie Murphy concerts are the GOATs but Chappelle has the best body of work

This new one was his weakest one though because it felt like he was forcing the issue and hoping people were offended as opposed to him just doing whatever and not caring either way.

The last one of his I saw he just sounded tired and kind of crabby but he did say some funny things. He made fun of that Jussy Smollett scam and said some funny things although calling him Juicy was pretty hacky lol.

Can anyone tell me if they can still get this special on Netflix?

It's not showing up on mine anymore. I watched it twice.

Weird that it's gone.

Thing is, I can tell what he was going for and sounds like actual comedians are praising him, but he might be in trouble, but then he also basically said he was gonna be taking a break so I think he knew the after effects, and I think that's what he was trying to start a conversation about.

So good for him, but f'd up if Netflix has taken this down....but maybe it's just something weird going on with my Netflix account?

Just finished the third episode of this. I'm officially hooked.

Tip to those who haven't watched, please for the love of God watch it in Korean with subtitles. I have no idea how anyone can watch dubbed over live action media.

For series like this we will usually watch the dub version, we can't be bothered gluing ourselves to the screen and reading every word, I agree the dubs always worse, but for movies I'll always have subtitles since it'll only be a couple hours at most.

“Them foreign boys better be speaking English, I don’t wanna hear their gibberish and have to read it!”

Seriously though I find the terrible dub way more distracting than actually reading subtitles while watching something.
