    Great question. She loathes the "F" word, so it's appearance more than once really grates on her. She'll tolerate a steamy scene if the story is compelling enough, or in a context I guess that she enjoys (oh how many times I noted her inconsistency while we watched Poldark, of which she is a big fan).

    I'll go with "probably" and see how it goes.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    I watched first three episodes. Started out very promising, on par with the best of True Detective. After three episodes, I'm starting to lose interest and might not finish because...
    Spoiler for spoiler:
    1. supernatural elements. it started out with a really interesting premise with the jason bateman character seemingly taunting police while having an alibi set up. would have been more interesting if there was naturalistic explanation. supernatural for me is just meh, usually. 2. Jason Bateman's killed off in the second episode

    Medical Police is ridiculously stupid and hilarious. Definitely recommend.

    Started this. Nice slow burn. I'm halfway through (3 episodes of 6). Sacha Baron Cohen is excellent.

    Locke & Key is a lot of fun. Have enjoyed watching with my teenagers. Based on a graphic novel and reminds me of both Umbrella Academy and Good Omens. I think Steven King's son, Joe Hill, is one of the writers of both the graphic novels and some episodes of the show.

    So this new Dracula series is a lot of fun. There are three parts to it-- the first was SO SO good, the second was pretty interesting and fun, and the third was kind of a dud tbh.

    That actor they got to play Dracula is about pitch perfect, and so is the nun Agatha. Check out at least the first one -- it's a lot of fun.

    I enjoyed the graphic novels. They were fun.

    True crime documentary. 3 episodes and I've only watched the first 2. I knew nothing about the story. It is intriguing and incredibly messed up

    I had no intention of watching this, but it started playing after I turned on Netflix but was distracted buy my kid. It's bonkers.

    New Babylon Berlin episodes are coming March 1. As I mentioned a while back, great show about the period of time between the World Wars before the Nazis really took hold -- though that might start changing during the upcoming season.

    I haven't read a whole lot about it, but it seems like if Germany hadn't gone Nazi there was a decent chance they may have gone Communist instead.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    Thanks for this recommendation. Fantastic story and great acting by Cohen. I also researched the true story and this seems at least loosely factual. Amazing story.

    Speaking of three-letter word shows: "You"

    Search terms: title character played by some dude name Penn Badgley, based on a novel (which I haven't read) by Caroline Kepnes.

    Dexter-vibe without the delicious fried eggs and ham intro. Still, it is a captivating and creepy.
