Tuesday TV Talk

Netflix’s is generally known for their selection of quality scripted dramas, talk shows, and comedy specials.  It is also a destination for random bullshit to watch when you need to have something on while eating.  In a recent such situation, I came across the BBC 2 program Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond The Lobby.  It features a tour of some of the most unique resorts across numerous countries, including Kenya, Morocco, and Ecuador.  In the preview above, the hosts pay a visit to the Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden.  It is, to no one’s surprise, a hotel literally made of ice.  Of the six hotels they visit in series 1, it’d be last on my bucket list.

    iZombie is back! I didn’t watch the season 4 premiere yet, but I am looking forward to watching it soon!

      Speaking of zombies, I caught the midseason premier of Walking Dead last night. I know it was a “big deal” episode but I was kind of like “come on, get on with it.” Definitely not as excited about this show as I used to be.

        I haven’t kept up with the Walking Dead. I don’t remember exactly where I left off, but I know there was a tiger and another mysterious group of survivors that lived in a garbage dump?

        • actionjackson5 says:

          Yeah, the garbage people they are ridiculous. Even if there was a zombie apocalypse, why would full-grown adults living together end up creating their own language in only, what, 3 years?

          (I feel silly that THIS is what annoys me the most about this show.)

    I love that what you call “random bullshit to watch when you need to have something on while eating” is literally our daily programme schedule 😉 😉

    (honestly I am laughing, not trying to be offended)

    It’s a great show and Giles and Monica are wonderful presenters. I’ve been on a Winter Olympics broadcasting break, so back to my normal shows for a week or so.

      Maybe “bullshit” was too strong a term, but essentially it’s kind of frivolous programming. Don’t get me wrong, I liked it a lot, but I’m not going to put it on the same level as, say, scripted shows. I’m not above binging on this or, say, Beachfront Bargain Hunt.

    Oh, and season one of the Leftovers is a chore, but I’m hoping it will get better after this season and the dreaded cave woman scene that I was warned about last week.

    I have read a few of Tom Perrotta’s books, but not The Leftovers. I wonder how much the show stays true to the book. If any of you know the answer, let me know.

    Another strike against the show are the opening titles. I do not like them. And that is pretty rare for an HBO show.

    I strongly recommend Corporate on Comedy Central. So damn funny.

    I am mostly through season 5 of Mad Men. NO SPOILERS, but something happened that was upsetting to me and I wonder where this show, which is getting more soap-opera at points, is going. I have faith, though, that it will end better than Lost.

    I got so bored with Project Runway All Stars that I just realized I stopped watching it halfway through the season. Did anyone watch that new movie Mute on Netflix? I heard about it only because everyone says it is incredibly terrible but I haven’t watched it. I really wanted to get into Altered Carbon but just couldn’t. I’m still on a M*A*S*H kick, I started season 4 last night.

    • welcometocostcoiloveyou says:

      LOL. I haven’t watched All Stars in a few weeks. I think the next episode in the list is the Betty Boop episode. I’ve never been a fan of Betty Boop, and I am generally annoyed when they have to design based on something more dumb than usual (such as the doll challenge from last season). I do think they should give Anthony his own show. I might not ever watch it, but he cracks me up, so just write him a check, Lifetime.
