Hat tip to whomever recommended Californication - good series about a 40-something guy basically post divorce who is coparenting a teenager and still carries a flame for his ex. Its a blatant rip off of the late 80s early 90s show Dream On! but better executed with a cooler lead character and set in LA rather than NYC.
Really enjoying Barbarians so far.
- Ancient history, particularly Roman history, never gets dull. To see a big show centering on Germanic tribes and one of Rome’s greatest defeats is even better.
- Language! I’ve never seen a show feature Latin so prominently before. Superb immersion. Would be even cooler if the German language sounded a bit more archaic as well (to my ears it sounds pretty much like modern German, but I’m just conversational in German).
- Actors and locations. Well-casted. Beautiful landscapes and forests.
I can see this show getting even better if it gets more seasons and larger budgets, now I just hope it meets Netflix viewership criteria.
Any fans of The Wonder Years on this forum?
Been watching and rewatching this show since I was a kid and I never get tired of it. Watched it umpteen times and I still can relate to it.
You would find that it holds up incredibly well but you'll no longer relate to Fred Savage but rather his alpha dad. I've always appreciated when something can not only capture the image but the spirit of the time period it's set in. The Wonder Years is totally authentic to 1968-1973.Loved that show as a kid. Haven’t seen it in a long time though so not sure if I’d still dig it.

My only gripe with rewatching the show is Fred Savage is constantly getting cucked and duped by the blue pill forces surrounding him in the first half of the show. However, the payoff is nice when his character starts to take the red pill towards the end of the show. The music is top tier.
