    I don't know either. Just because a show isn't mainstream doesn't make it worth watching. I made it through 3 episodes.

    Man, PBS' Frontline show America's Great Divide: From Obama to Trump is excellent. I only watched Part 1, but I'm looking forward to finishing it.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Perhaps itís different taste? I donít know how anyone can stand sitting through 90% of comic book movies.

    The only thing I can think of is it switches the gender rolls. Other than that my guess is cause of it is British and the main character breaks the Fourth Wall.

    It doesn't seem that original, it isn't funny and none of the characters are likable or interesting. I am being girlfriended into watching so I hope it gets better.

    It does? I haven't laughed once and this show is nothing compared to HBO or Showtime shows on the squirm factor. Is it cause she is a woman talking about disgusting stuff cause I hear way worse from a lot of women I know

    Seems ok to me. I'm not laughing out loud but it's funny enough and different enough that it's worth watching.

    I like British humor often enough, but like you I didn't find it that amusing. Didn't hate it. Just "meh".

    Killing Eve has been fantastic.

    Re: TV: A Succession of Watchmen in The Good Place

    I'm so glad you guys started this conversation. I'm three episodes in as well and I don't see what all the fuss is about. PWB is great at acceptance speeches. Between the Emmys, Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards I thought - wow, I need to start watching this. I guess I was just so annoyed at Fleabag beating out Schitt's Creek for Best Comedy, it's reflecting on how I'm thinking of Fleabag. When does Hot Priest show up? Season 2?

    Schitt's Creek is maybe the best comedy to come out in the past 5 years. Dan Levy is a genius!
