    I need to watch this. I love it when those preachy, experts of everything, holier than thou Hollywood hypocrites get called out.
    I needed this last night. I was watching it in awe... something like this generally makes me feel a little awkward, but i was sitting there hooting and hollering at the screen with my wife like it was a Raps blowout game. The only problem was he didn't get enough air time imo!

    So I finally finished the final episode of Witcher. Witcher 3 (the video game) is much better in my opinion. The way they opted to tell the story by jumping back and forth past to present was very poorly executed. It was like they were trying to tell the story in the same means as Westworld but they didn't know how to do it, like they were forcing the issue and trying to be clever. I hope they fix this in season two. The Witcher is primarily Geralt's story and everyone else is supporting cast. Just tell his story guys and if you want to do some character development I don't know, wild idea, utilize flashbacks or date subtitles? Still, with that in mind, its a good show. It just needs a little work.
    I saw about 10 minutes of the first episode and fell asleep. Geralt casted mind control and told me not to watch this show.

    Big fan of Gervais.. hate award shows though and don't have basic cable. But I'll look for a video when I get a chance just so I can hear his jabs.

    LOL....

    Bringing Sandra Bullock on stage to announce the final award, Gervais said, ’Our next presenter starred in Netflix’s ‘Bird Box,’ a movie where people survive by acting like they don’t see a thing. Sort of like working for Harvey Weinstein.’ After the crowd erupted in boos, Gervais replied, ‘You did it! I didn’t, you did it!’”

    Started watching the the Stephen King series Mr. Mercedes. I love King, my wife loves crime-thrillers (it's basically about hunting down a serial killer), it stars Brendan Gleeson as the retired homicide detective, and it has very good reviews - ticks a lot of boxes for me. Just crazy a show of this calibre is virtually unknown outside hardcore SK fans - like, who the heck has the 'Audience' network?

    Was anyone else really confused when watching Witcher? It clears up after watching the 3rd or 4th episode, but the confusion made me want to drop it. The guys writing it I think wanted to be clever but in a fantasy like that, it really messes you up.

    Not sure if I'm up for a season two just yet. An okay show, but I've seen a lot better. The main actress is pretty hot though.
    The different timelines? Ya, I actually went in knowing they were a little fucky, so it didn't mess me up as much as it might others. I thought it was poorly handled, but at the end of the day, it worked itself out, so I'm ok with it.

    Karl had a show years ago, An Idiot Abroad. You might be interested in that, I found it quite amusing. I think I might have skimmed across it recently on Netflix actually.
    Yeah after watching the Ricky Gervais show we wanted to try that. It's pretty funny. Felt really bad for the guy though. Ricky really made his life as difficult as possible.

    Not sure if anyone is a fan of Ricky Gervais or not. He did the Office show in the UK before it became a show in the US. Anyway he has a podcast that was turned into an animated show called "The Ricky Gervais show". Essentially he and his friend (Stephen Merchant - also a creator of the Office) basically discuss topics with their friend Karl. Well Karl is let me just say an interesting guy.. and the show is hilarious.

    Wife and I marathoned a couple of the seasons. We were busting up through most of it.

    I assume Ragnar was beamed up to the Death Star by Scotty. Thanks, guys. Spoiler Alert!
    I see you've heard nothing about the Vikings In Space spinoff.

    lol, the power of the force is infinitesimal next to the power of the power of a hollywood paycheck.
