Still looking forward to new Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell, that's ended up being my favorite active series on there now that Heart She Holler is done.
I am not that familiar with the Adult Swim scene, only with the big ones like The Eric Andre Show tbh. I saw the trailer for "Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell"
prior to your mention and it didn't do much for me, but "Heart She Holler" looks absolutely bonkers, so I will surely put it to my watchlist, cheers.

IMO, The Heart, She Holler is the best thing Vernon Chatman has ever done. It's nuttier than a tree full of squirrels on laughing gas, downright disgusting at the best of times, disturbing at the worst, and fucking hilarious throughout.

Your pretty face is going to hell took me a little bit to get into. The first season left me mildly entertained but mostly nonplussed. Now that I've seen them all, it's easily in my top 5 for that network, it's funny as hell once you get a handle on the characters.

Also, if any of you are into Anime, check out Ballmasters. It's more of a parody of Anime tropes, but well written and the animation style is really cool. Also, if you don't like Anime, you should still watch it (I fucking hate anime lol), it's just funny in general.

Re: Good TV Shows?

As we are on the topic of wacko tv, does anyone know from which show (or a movie) is this clip? I stumbled upon this gif on some edgy meme page, but have zero context. Danger 5 would be my best bet but I have only seen 2 episodes so far so I cant confirm it:

It's not from Danger 5. I could see why you would think that because of the zi's. Go finish the series, amazing.

Re: Good TV Shows?

I just finished Bloodline. It was mostly a great albeit uncomfortable watch. However, it’s pretty incredible how badly the show went off the rails in season 3. I read they were told halfway through filming there wasn’t gonna be another season, which makes sense, considering how rushed everything felt. Still, did it have to be this nonsensical?

I know some people here are fans of the show Dark. Have any of you watched the 3rd and final season yet? I'm about to start it up...

Re: Good TV Shows?

Third season was a pretty big disappointment for me, season 1 is great and season 2 fantastic, though.

Agreed. S3 became more of a "let me clarify who did who" plot-line to try to explain things. It would've been cool if they developed a story about time travel aspect. It's a pretty engaging 1st and 2nd season for anyone who digs Sci-Fi.

Re: Good TV Shows?

I just binged Dark the other week and loved it. I think all 3 seasons are masterfully crafted. S3 does feel a little rushed, but it made sense for it not to be as microscopically detail-oriented as the previous two, given how the story unfolds on a larger scale.

As brief as it was I loved Maxxx on Hulu. Can’t believe it’s the same guy as handmaiden’s tale. So funny.

It’s received a lot of well deserved hype is what we do in the shadows also on Hulu, great effects and Colin Robinson is one of the greatest sitcom characters ever made; the imagination is great, the sets, the casting, all so colorful and brilliant.

Definitely worse. im consistently disappointed with every episode. To be fair though, the material they're covering was the most boring of all the books, the whole Inaros story arc seemed a bit slapped on. It should improve once they get past it.

never read the books, and going by the people i know and trust on these matters, they seem to agree with you (book 5 being the worst) and most say that for the most part the tv show is better 'cause it trims a lot of the fat... and it seems like that's what they failed to do in the last 2 seasons. it seriously feels like they could've made one 12 episode long season out of these two (just like they did with book 3 for the 2nd half of season 3)

oh, and Amazon is supposedly dropping the tv show after season 6 which should be the last?

Unfortunate - I'm starting Season 2 and the show is awesome so far.

s1 and s2 are really really awesome. first half of season 3 as well. imo the second half of s3 is a bit meh. s4 would've been better if it was half as long, and s5 is... irritating

I thought The Serpent's writing took a sharp nose dive after episode 4.

Was great leading up to it, but definitely flopped a bit.
