"The Confession Killer"

I'd heard the name Henry Lee Lucas a bunch of times and knew him from his braggadocios claims that he had killed hundreds of people and could recall them in stunning clarity...I really was ignorant of the other side of the coin - the Texas lawmen who set him up to be the biggest patsy in American crime - because he didn't do any of it...

Its stunning to me that the real nature of this hoax flew under the radar the way it did, because I knew almost none of this story: A con man who allows himself to be conned by the cops.

Says a lot about the wave of fear that "Serial Killers" caused in the last part of the twentieth century. Lucas was basically a pheasant who talked himself up to the level of the Boogeyman, but not without LOTS of help from the Texas Rangers who have the most blood on their hands at the end of the day.

Barely made it through Kevin Hart: Don't Fuck This Up on Netflix. What a tone deaf documentary about a clearly tone deaf person.

Yeah, about 10 minutes into the first episode I thought "well, this is awful" lol. I ended up leaving it on in the background while I did things around the house.

Don’t Fuck With Cats - horrifying but also fascinating to watch. Just when you think it couldn’t get any more sick and crazy, it does. 

Now THIS was a good doc.

Started watching "You" on Netflix today. I'm 5 episodes into Season 1. I'm liking it as much as I was told I would.

Amazon Prime, I think it’s also on iTunes in the US. It’s really lovely (how could it not be!). Produced by the Honest Trailer folks.

I just finished Don't Fuck With Cats and really enjoyed it. It really was disturbing. I also watched the Kevin Hart Don't Fuck This Up and I kind of wish I didn't. I liked him a lot more before I watched it. I also just finished watching The Madalorian on Disney+. I did not love it, but I mostly enjoyed it. I will watch Season 2 when it comes out.

Not a new show by any means, but I've been watching That 70's Show a lot recently. Can't believe it took me this long to give it a try. Absolutely fantastic. I want to own just about every one of Steven Hyde's t-shirts. :lol:

I'm halfway through season 2 and it's pretty shit compared to the first season in my opinion. Not that the first season was brilliant, but it was entertaining enough for me to be looking forward to the second season. 

So far season 2 is very unrealistic, mediocre acting from some of the actors, and there are too many attractive characters which doesn't exactly make the show more realistic.

It's a great show for sure. :thumbsup:

I just started watching The Spy with Sasha Baron Cohen....so far so good. 

And disappointing to hear about season 2 of You but who knows  I may still like it. Will continue to watch that too.

^ For sure, it's just my opinion. I still like it enough to watch the entire season, but there are too many moments in this season that are too far-fetched and I feel that they are kinda repeating the storyline of the first season but not as convincing.

Im also watching both Dont Fuck With Cats and You season 2.

Dont fuck with cats: So much dark shit happens in Canada and we also tend to make grim cinema. Relative to our population size its astounding all the dark stuff that goes down, but its easy to explain when you think about how colonization dehumanizes people and normalizes genocide, assault, murder, dispossession and law enforcement turning a blind eye. 'Predator and prey' is the backbone of this country.

You season 2: I thought season 1 was too real. Like I saw aspects of the nut job in people iRL. So in that sense its cool to go a bit over the top in season 2. I wish it was shot in a bit more of an other-worldy way to match the themes though.

Spoiler

I can't take season 2 very seriously... the way Candace finds out Joe is in Los Angeles. Seriously? The way Joe runs into Love's friend when he's stalking that Aussie boyfriend of her. Seriously? What are the odds of running into someone you know in a city with millions of people at exactly that moment? Too much of those moments in the show that really make no sense. And why do they almost all look like models? It's like watching Models Inc.. Don't even get me started about the ridiculous ending!

I haven seen the entire season yet, so ill have to get back to you on some of this. But yeah, its so over the top. I still think that creepier cinematography that conveys that its like a fantasy or neurotic imagination could help. Its shot and lit like a rom com for reasons I dont get. Also the topical me too storyline is a bit on the nose, although I like the Ella character.

A show can still be entertaining and not everything has to make sense, but season 2 has so many plot holes that it's hard to take it seriously and kinda ruined it for me. Oh well.

Just (struggled) to finish Season 1 of You. Not sure I'm gonna bother with season 2. It really reminds me of a Dexter/Riverdale hybrid.

I think the Deuce season 3 is next on the list.

Plot holes? Episode IX enthusiasts will love it then ;)

Everything Sucks! on Netflix.

Bad title but it’s a fun, little show about high school kids in 1996. Nostalgic for anyone who was a teen in the 90s. Great soundtrack too. Made me miss the 90s even more.
