@chienfou@evantribley I wound up in hotels for the first 2 episodes of the season, and for the second one I called to make sure they had HBO. Then I started a free trial and will owe about fifteen bucks at the end. I watched the first couple of seasons and the recaps of the rest but want to watch the last episode with everyone else and a bowl of popcorn.
I only just heard about this show yesterday, so haven’t had a chance to watch. Buddy said I need to see it if just for Noho Hank (I think that’s the name, too lazy to check. I know he’s Zsasz from Gotham), but beyond that I know literally nothing.
@therealjrn Ditto… I have Netflix and Amazon Prime (TMo subsidizes my Netflix and the SO is a student so AP is cheaper) I have ‘binge watched’ (OK… may not a binge… just one or two shows nightly for a few weeks or more) a handful of series such as Once, Sneaky Pete, Sherlock Holmes (with Dr Stange and Bilbo), Broadchurch etc. But so far have not seen any of GoT or Barry…
I don’t have HBO, so haven’t seen either.
Barry looks like something I’d enjoy.
I’ll eventually watch GoT when it’s made available on Netflix or Amazon, but it’s not exactly a genre I’m into.
@DennisG2014 Oh Dennis, I thought the same. I’m sooo not into the fantasy genre, but GoT got me hooked. I finally gave in and watched the first episode a few years back and I was hooked. There’s a reason why it’s so popular and that’s incredible storytelling. The fantasy part is secondary to the storytelling and it fits in so well that you forget it’s far fetched.
I mean it looks good, but I only have enough time for one show at a time + sports. I’ll probably never get around to it, but it’s good to know it’s good so if I ever do have time, it’s a worthy option.
Amazed how hard people work to enjoy garbage!
Barry is ~meh~ at best. Certainly no Dexter! Acting is tinny, plot is… well… is there really a plot? I watched 3 episodes trying to enjoy it, but it is really a turd.
