Grav, try GLOW on Netflix. You will like it, I promise.

Me, I just binged the first season of "The Good Place" on Hulu. It's a weird show. Great dialogue and comedic timing, weird-as-shit plot and aesthetics. I kind of didn't want to like it but also kept watching because it was undeniably funny. Like a cult classic that happens to be new, except that means the "it's bad because it's old" justification isn't actually there. It's good if you like absurdist stuff, or like a John Waters visual style.

I think this line's mostly filler.

I really liked "The Good Place". Looking forward to how they handle the second season.

Is it good? I've been avoiding trying it in case it shits all over my memory of the books.

I get second degree agoraphobia just watching that trailer, so... maybe not.

Did you see this in the news? More insane people in that "legendary valley".

It's been a long while since I read it, but I'm pretty sure the show is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike the book.

Which is probably better than being similar, but missing something major.

I never read the books, but Mr. Clod says it's basically the Dirk Gently character, with entirely new plot lines. Based on the books I have read, though, I would say that it has a pretty spot-on "Douglas Adams" flavor in general, however.
