    Sort of like a what are you watching thread, but with something extra.

    Just a place to talk about something you are watching, or have watched. Warn people to stay away, or tell us how great it was.

    the [soon to be ex-] GF got me watching the biggest loser
    i understand it's a reality show and sometimes contrived
    but to see the transformations [and not just physically] is pretty freakin amazing

    I have a tough time getting into reality shows, usually starts with a lack of time, and finishes with just not being overly interested, frankly.

    A good show, netflix available, Black Mirror. Only 2 seasons, 6 ep, fairly bizarre show. Run-time is an hour, no continuation between episodes, so the pick up and put down factor is there for those TV show binge'rs like myself.

    Check it out

    I've heard that's a good show...sort of like a modern twilight zone.

    Definitely some similarities, worth a watch. If and when I recommend it, I usually say skip the first episode. It's almost too much, and I worry it throw's people off a bit. If you give your self a little understanding of where the show is coming from, and then watch it, it's not as gruesome.
