2 things jumped out:

1. Unusually high number of gay characters
2. Extremely unusual amount of visible tattoos for high school kids

Just finished it myself. I thought it was good, kept me wanting to watch the next episode. I thought the exact same thing regarding the tattoos. Seriously? Ha. Couldn't find actors with no tattoos to play high school kids.

Such a pity.
??? I don't remember this specifically, but don't worry, plenty to come! Even up to the last season this is still one of my top 10 favorite series. It never got old to me.

Yeah, that was tough for me to watch. Overall I thought the series was pretty good though, had me wanting to keep watching the next episode.

Both excellent shows. I find myself watching a lot more Hulu as well, only thing I watched on Amazon TV was The Americans but now I'm all caught up. Netflix still comes thru for me when I'm in the mood to watch some older series reruns though, like The Office.

"Mad Dogs" on Amazon prime is great. Good combination of action and comedy.

Kept saying this exact same thing to myself. I remember in HS days during basketball if you had a visible tattoo you had to cover it on up...let alone just casual, everyday appearance.

Liked the series, they didn't sugar coat that ending any at all. Even knowing it was coming, the last episode definitely shook me a bit after watching. Have read opinions that the show is "glorifying" suicide and could be dangerous for kids who are in that position, that she didn't take any personal accountability during these difficult times. I wouldn't go that far for my perception of the show, and maybe it's just the changing of the times, but life does suck sometimes. (*do know can never fully understand what is going on in someone else's life)

But guess we are a far ways away from the life lessons Boy Meets World taught me

Not sure if any of you guys ever watched Psych when it was on USA, but this is awesome. I've heard it's no longer on Netflix but I wonder if they'll bring it back before this holiday special airs. If so, it's definitely worth a watch, was and still is one of my favorite shows:

‘Psych’ Reunion: Cast Reuniting for Holiday Movie on USA Network in December

USA Network has staged a “Psych” reunion.

The original cast and creator are returning for a two-hour holiday movie, “Psych: The Movie,” this December, Variety has learned.

The news comes more than three years after “Psych” went off the air in spring 2014, after airing for eight seasons and more than 120 episodes.

In “Psych: The Movie,” fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his best friend, Burton “Gus” Guster (Dulé Hill), will team up once again. Lassiter (Timothy Omundson), Juliet (Maggie Lawson), Henry (Corbin Bernsen) and Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson) will also return for the movie, which picks up three years after the series finale. The friends, along with some returning fan-favorite characters, come together during the holidays after a mystery assailant targets one of their own.

“‘Psych’ is a beloved part of our USA family, and what better time to reunite with family than the holidays.” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Steve and James have taken the unique brand of comedy that the series honed over eight seasons and packed it in to a two-hour movie that successfully rekindles one of the greatest bro-mances in television history.”

“‘Psych’ has an absolutely phenomenal and constantly refreshing fan base. We couldn’t be more thrilled to gift our Psych-os this holiday season with ‘Psych: The Movie,'” added Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, and President, Universal Cable Productions. “Steve, James, Dulé and the rest of the gang are all returning for a delightful holiday movie that will not – nay, dare not – disappoint!”

“Psych” creator Steve Franks will direct the movie, which he co-wrote with Roday. They will both executive produce with Hill, and Chris Henze and Kelly Kulchak of Tagline Pictures. Universal Cable Productions is the studio.

“Psych: The Movie” goes into production on May 24.

What's your preference ? Slasher, paranormal, alien/zombies..etc?

Imo, Asian horror movies are much more scarier than the laughable American horrors.

Mostly looking for paranormal. I love the zombie genre but I don't really find them scary, just more interested in their "end of the world" plots. I feel that I've seen about every zombie movie/tv show out there though.

Finished watching 13 reasons last night. Beautifully produced, but also gutwrenching and one of the most (if not the most) depressing works of fiction I've ever watched. I think I made the mistake of actually putting myself in Clay's shoes like I was back in HS and instead of watching it somewhat dispassionately, I remembered how I felt in HS, what my social life was like, what I worried about, etc. Lots of parallels. I could write an essay on it. Having been there (not dealing with suicide mind you), been the outcast, been the one on the receiving end of stuff, I know how your mind can play tricks on you. I know the pressure, the ways you try and combat it, the people who break you over and over, and the desire to find that one person that can offer you an escape. And having been friends with HS girls that were plagued by the same ****, even though they were gorgeous, I saw how seemingly little **** effected them when it compounded.

I'll leave it by saying based on my experience watching it, I don't know that I'd recommend it to anyone. If my mother or sister watched it, I'm pretty sure they'd be really pretty messed up for at least a few days. It's really, really visceral. Brilliantly done, and I think it drives the point home, but sh1t it was rough.
