Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Binged Tiger King today. Felt it ran out of steam by the final couple of episodes, but episodes 1-4 are deliriously good. Was always going to be tricky maintaining that pace.

Screwball documentary is on Netflix about doping in sport. It’s pretty great. 

 

That’s a fun doc, another one with ‘they can’t be real?!’ characters.

Is Tiger King a genuine factual documentary, or a fictitious series presented as a documentary?


Factual documentary.

Really enjoyed Tiger king so far but it's definitely cheeky in the way it presents the revelations. All documentaries are somewhat manipulative in the editing but this goes a bit too far for my taste.

 

Just finished episode 4 and it is declining in quality; feeling a bit jumbled now. Hope it picks up at the end.

I liked Tiger King all the way through, and the way they presented it was great imho.

 

I think the reason they did it the way they did is because they wanted it to be entertaining, which it is.

While I’m here, there is a great documentary on Netflix about a radical summer camp for disabled people in 70s US, called Crip Camp. Watch it!

Yuss - it's a bit unsubtle in its themes but I really enjoyed it.

Anybody watching Cheer, about the Navarro junior college cheerleading squad training for the national championships? It’s really good.

I watched it on the basis that it's produced by the same team who did Last Chance U, which is brilliant. I have a real soft spot for small town Americana and both LCU and Cheer scratch that itch to perfection. Extra credit for Cheer in that I could watch it with my girlfriend. 

 

@ZOK what I'm saying is, if you liked Cheer, watch Last Chance U.

New series of Sunderland 'Til I Die today. Love it. 

 

First thing the new bosses focus on is the walk out music. I'll be the same story as last year where everyone peddles the bike hard while the owners get fixated on selling the wheels.

Just watched the first one. Obviously, they don't go up. The posh, sweary, floppy haired Chief Exec is an instant arsehole. 

I can't really forgive Sunderland as they played Southend in their final game with nothing to play for, didn't try, played a weakened team and Southend won.... relegating us to League 2. They also got a lot of friendly referees that season and, although they're pleading poverty at the very start, their budget was enormous compared to some teams in League 1. Spending £900k on Wyke was madness.

I love their fans though.

I'll enjoy this. Loved the first season.

Gets even more crazy in episode 5!

You're right. Episode 5 and the look on the guy's face in the office.

 

Also 

Spoiler

Joe Exotic's valedictory about his husband's balls, smooth as chicken nuggets.

Bonkers. Best episode yet.

I don't really follow football but loved STiD. Fascinating insight and I had no idea how it was going to end. Clearly neither did they when they started which is what makes it so compelling. 

 

Did they have as barmy a season last year then? Obviously, watch your spoilers as I have no idea. :)

Sunderland 'Til I Die season 2 is fantastic. Perhaps not quite as watch-through-the-fingers calamitous as the first season

Spoiler

because they are in the third tier and holding their own but the boardroom machinations are fascinating. Maybe it's just me but after episode 3 I started to find the two directors overbearing and there's a small part of me that now wants them to fail. As harsh as that sounds I find some of their treatment of staff steps over the line.

Part 4 of Money Heist has been added.


God, really thought it was called Monkey Heist when I first read this. 
 

Must be a combination of your username and the innately amusing, Partridgesqe affixing of ‘Monkey’ to the front of any activity.

I thought this would not have been a spoiler considering you'd know that unless you aren't a football supporter or interested in football.

 

A prime example of them getting favourable decisions is evident in their boxing day match at home to Bradford City. I doubt they'll show the game when they played my team away with two absolute blatant handballs that should have given us two penalties in the first half at 0-0..... but yes, I'm bitter.
