I don't have any association with any of these websites in any way.  Not spamming.  Legitimately thought people might like to see these here since it is a Friday and people might not know about these things (such as the subgenre).

I miss college football

I changed the title to Drinking Thread which seems to be a tradition around here and hopefully it calms the people who don't see that I was trying to add value here

Started watching The Frozen Dead (French) earlier this week.  Also the Unabomber....both pretty good I think.  Godless was a great little limited series.  I'm a fan of Halt and Catch Fire and have been catching up on it as well (don't have cable so I'm way behind, finishing season 3).


Can't wait to crack into Broadchurch season 3.  Going to finish these things first (as well as Game of Thrones season 7).


ALSO ALSO...I watched A Most Violent Year recently on Blu-ray and really enjoyed it.  Oscar Isaac was great at that role.  Looking forward to seeing more of him in dramatic/suspense roles in the future (Inside Llewyn Davis was really good ).  How he hasn't completely blown up yet is ridiculous to me!

NOT about Penn State. A British cop show centered on a fiftyish woman police sergeant in a relatively small town in the midlands. Great writing and Sarah Lancashire in the lead role is something else. 12 episode commitment. IMO the best cop show ever.

Just saw a tweet from Fox Sports showing A Rod giving a pregame talk to the MSU BB team.

What possible connection - aside from a shared steroid supplier - could A Rod have with MSU?

Bonus Twitter note - Proud MSU honorary captain “the Situation” indicted on tax evasion today....

Ozark, Broadchurch, Marcella, Luther, Godless, are a few I watched recently. If you have Amazon Prime - The Tunnel, Line of Duty, Tennison, are few good ones. I like PBS series, very good writing and acting.

Drink: "superfluid" by shorts...a delicious double American IPA, but 9% so gotta sip slow

Netflix: just watched "my next guest" by David letterman. The only episode currently out is his interview of obama. I found it to be very good

I've got a Bell's Porter with some Bulleit Rye on deck for later.

As far as shows go, I will also vouch for Mind Hunter. Ozark was excellent as well.

I'll take a look at the tools provided by the OP - thanks for sharing - cinesift seems like something that might save me some wasted time...

Tampa, FL - drinking their Trippel called Unholy which is definitely one of my favorite beers. Hopefully it’s not for another Outback Bowl, but if any of you are ever down this way I’m sure you’ll enjoy.

Omg that fucking show was hilarious! I loved every minute.

The stick figures doing HJs in one of the last episodes when they were trying to see if anyone else could've from, multiple viewpoints, seen what was going on on the dock was amazing. Cleverly funny!

Hopslam. I was walking out of the grocery store without anything in hand, and the clerk asked me if I was there to buy Hopslam and that I must've missed it because they were keeping it in the back. I said sure cause I didn't want to tell him I was just there to go pee.

I'm doing both the Netflix thing and the drinking thing. 

After having exhausted most of the recommended Netflix fare, including Black Mirror, Stranger Things, Ozark, Peaky Blinders and Mindhunter, I found two interesting shows recently in Dark, and Broadchurch.

Anyone else dig either of those?

Oh, and I'm enjoying some Three Floyds Gumballhead tonight -- one of my favorites.
