Streaming recommendations (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Crackle?)

Ive found in time the search on this forum was shit but if you google whatever keywords with the word hipinion, you get what you're looking for most of the time. I mean even when they keywords aren't exact.

i'm two episodes into erased -- a live action japanese series on netflix -- and it's really good so far. in the first episode, we meet a depressed young man who is occasionally thrown into the past by a few minutes. he knows from experience that this happens when something tragic is about to occur, so he has to quickly locate and avert whatever it is. this doesn't have a chance to become gimmicky, because by the end of the first episode a tragedy occurs that he very much needs to reverse. he hopes for one of his "revivals", as he calls them, and one does occur -- but it sends him back to elementary school, where he realizes he has an opportunity to prevent some major tragedies that occurred then.

the production is downright cinematic, with beautiful photography shot on location on hokkaido and in chiba, and excellent performances (so far.)

the ending of this didn't quite deliver, and there were some weaknesses in the plot, but it was quite good by netflix standards. if you like serial killers of children who wear bucket hats, this show is for you.

i watched the first episode of the anime series and it's kind of insane how visually faithful the live action series is to it.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person who's watched every episode of ER. Highly recommended!

I'm near the end of S1 of Bablyon Berlin, its really good. Its a little difficult to keep track of what exactly the fuck is going on sometimes (the various factions and groups in particular are hard to follow) but the characters are so good its worth watching.

watched the first two episodes on the bus this morning. its pretty good.

tho i dont know why i watch these high school things. all it does is remind me of how afraid i was at all times and how much i hated high school and how much i wanted to just fucking off myself yet each one of these series that comes out i watch all over again and just hate myself all over again for a while.

Electric Dreams on Amazon is bleh so far, just feels like sub-Twilight Zone stories with robots and pretty good music. Was hoping for something much more striking considering some of the people involved.

The eighth season is the peak but then you get into some weird ass John Stamos, Linda Cardellini, and Darlene from Roseanne stuff later on and it really goes off the rails.

If I remember correctly, Shia Labeouf is in the first episode when Abby joins the cast.

Chris Rock standup special so dated that the cultural references include Circuit City.
