    It took 2-3 episodes for me to actually get into it.

    When going to watch S2 i saw the 1(0) and accidentally watched the finale. Never felt like a final episode, though I was wondering what I forgot from the prior season to get where they were at. Not sure if I'll back track and watch the rest now

    Well Amazon Prime movies is just a bonus. You buy Amazon prime for all the discounts, free 1-2 day shipping, and other perks here and there. IMO you're a complete idiot or just like 60+ years old if you're not using Amazon Prime... By the time you get in the car, DRIVE to get something the same price (if not more expensive) WITH tax (lot of states still don't charge tax) you're spending another $20+ prob. wasting hours of your time.

    As for Netflix/Hulu... Netflix is generally worthless outside of older movies, and movies are so easy to find online anyway these days whatever.

    Hulu is absolute trash tier.

    If you like Game of thrones and Vikings, Last Kingdom on Netflix is a must watch.

    Binged this over the last couple weeks.

    Just a remake of Mad Men. But better for me since I grew up in Silicon Valley in the 80s and lived through all this stuff.

    The time jumps were not handled well, though. Too jarring.

    I tried to watch Mad Men, but couldn't get past the second season (may have quit some time during the second season). Halt and catch fire brought me in with both the soundtrack and the acting. Lee Pace has this ethereal presence that's hard to pin down, but with the soundtrack, it works so well. I've always felt Scoot Mcnairy was great as well. With nothing else being said, I did shed tears in the final season.

    we are almost through season 3 and I can see how season 4 can be a tear jerker.

    Scoot has pretty damn good. I keep getting him confused with Skeet Ulrich.

    The chick that plays Cameron just makes some awesome facial expressions. Her eyes are wonderful.

    I have all three and am always so incredibly disappointed in the movie choices. I will think of a movie I'd like to watch with my daughter (usually a decent movie from the 80's or 90's. Very rarely is it available on any of the 3.

    finished Halt and Catch Fire last night. The last 5 episodes or so really got emotional.

    Good show. I recommend it.

    Hulu has the old school friday night lineups for me to watch.

    they're ok in my book.

    That list is getting pretty small now but I agree with the rest of your points. What sucks about movies is that companies still haven't figured out a rational pricing system for digital copies and the last thing I want are a pile of DVDs laying around.

    Netflix removed Futurama and Family Guy.

    It's a good thing my grandson watches the shit outta the children's shows or I'd probably cancel them.

    I think Hulu live is pretty good, I only use Amazon prime for shipping.

    I'm through the first 4 hours of The Handmaid's Tale. It's excellent.. very compelling. It's also very dark, so probably not great for binging... at least not for me. About 2 hours is all of that world I can take at a time. I'm looking for something else to try. There are so many options I hate to invest time in something unless I know it's going to be worth it.
