Did anyone watch that new show Santa Clara Diet??

I finished it yesterday. it was okay.. kinda funny, kinda gross. It wasn't anything special imo but it was good for a one time watch lol

 I agree lol. I am almost finished with the 1st season, but I like the mixture of  humor & disturbing aspects the show deals with. The family keeps dealing with more crazy situations every day while still trying to balance a normal life for their daughter.

Really looking forward to Stranger Things Season 2. It's going to be a long wait until this airs though.

Good lord idk half these shows y'all talking about lol.

Only originals I've watched are House of Cards, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.

I think my problem is that it seems like Netflix releases like 5 new ones every couple months and I can't keep up with all that. Nor be able to tell which ones are worth the time.

How is House of Cards? That's one I still need to watch. But I feel like it will take forever since there are already @ least 4 seasons.

It's actually really good. I started late too but it kept me hook.

that's one thing I like about Netflix shows is that they are only 10 episodes a season(usually), versus like 22 episodes with most being filler that makes me lose interest. 

Here are my Netflix recommendations for anyone that cares haha They are all amazing!!

House of Cards (political drama, about a guy who will do just about anything to attain office (even murder))

Bloodline (family drama, about three siblings trying to cover up the murder of their brother, and the events that lead to his death)

Pretty much all of these are on my list if I have not watched them yet. With the exception of Narcos, I want to see all.

the youtube comment section on this new netflix series is so fucking toxic and delusional. The trailer is a bit misleading, but jesus christ all the white folks (most i'm assuming are the conservative trump voters) are going CRAZY over this trailer. People should educate themselves and read what the movie it's based on is about.. or you know, watch it? I for one am excited to see this series.

Dear White People is one of my all time favortie films, and we 100% need a series now more than ever. Its funny, eye opening, powerful, and not TOO serious. 

White people are always in their feelings. So quick to call something racist, but when an ACTUAL racist event happens, they turn a blind eye.

I like that the movie had all different points of view too. Like the girl that created the radio segment "dear white people" ends up getting shit on and labeled a racist herself.. even though her whole thing is a "i'm above it and i can say anything cause black people can't be racist"-shtick. it shows racist things that white people do and/or turn a blind eye to, how black people can be racist and/or play the race card too much, and then it shows the normal people in the middle that are just like "wtf can't we just all get along?" haha 

it definitely opens up a lot of conversation and i didn't really find any of it offensive to one race in particular. it's fairly even across the board and not even that bad. i'm interested to see how it affect's netflix though... the shit storm after this trailer has been crazy

Exactly, sis. I remember once, I brought this dude from Grindr home to fuck and somehow we started discussing race. Blonde white guy. I convinced him to watch the movie with me and he had a new POV afterwards. I think what makes that movie so interesting is that it's not "WHITE PEOPLE SUCK!" It uses comedy and shows what its like to be a black college student nowadays without making it harsh. I cant wait for the series.

I think the issue more people are having is the writer (?) tweeting things like Fuck white people... which started getting repsonses like I fucking hate white people, I wish they would die... White=Racism... and there is enough hate already without vaguely promoting more. If he is a self loathing, closet bigot - that's on him but with out seeing the movie, show or getting into the arguing I found the hate tweeting really sad and pathetic in this day and age. 

Mitch the original Shameless...so much better, smarter some is still shocking but less gratuitous and more they walk among us...smdh kind of shocking - I was a junkie with that show when it was on Sundance the ULTIMATE disfunctional family

Thats not at all the issue. The average white person read the title, saw the trailer, and got offeneded without knowing WHY they were offeneded. Like they always do. I'm willing to bet a million dollars the majority of them had no idea about the tweets you mentioned. 

wasn't his tweet referring to a stat that the majority of the white race in the US voted for trump, whereas every other race in the US voted for hilary lol... i don't know how serious he was being, but i mean.. i'm white and I wanted to say the same thing when i saw that lol

Exactly. People are reaching; they find any little reason to be offended when they're faced with truth. Regardless, it's gonna be a great series

I was expecting it to be a lot more funnier but I agree it wasn't anything special. Good thing the episodes were only 30 min so it was a quick watch.

The Get Down is so underrated

The Get Down is so underrated

Most people loved it, including the critics lol so it's not really underrated per say. it just got overshadowed by Stranger Things last summer. And not a lot of people are fans of musicals
