not sure how close it is to the book but it's generally about an alien invasion, although there are a lot of layers as tater alluded to. The book series is pretty mind-blowing.
Is it written in English that does not seem like a hackish Chinese translation? For example, I read one of the Witcher books and those were translated from Polish and the nuances of dialogue were weird and unsettling to me.

originally in chinese translated to english.

The chinese series is much better than the netflix series and follows the book very closely.

The new series is based on and follows the plot of the books, but as mentioned, the first season borrows plots that are outside the first book.

I agree that it's much more enjoyable in the original Mandarin.

SILO on AppleTV is pretty good. The first couple episodes were really good, and then the middle was a little fluffy, but I keep watching because I really want to know how it ends. I have one episode left.

it’s pretty good, common is a terrible actor.  they’re filming a second season.

Yes, common was the worst part. They should have swapped his and David Oyelowo's roles.

I watched season 2 of American Rust.  The first season was on Showtime and this season was on Amazon.  I hate that Amazon wedges commercials into shows that aren't made for commercials.  But, I don't think Bezos needs another $24 a year from me.  Anyway, American Rust is good.  It's a little typical of shows these days where the protagonist is very flawed and at times an unlikable character that you still want to win. I thought Season 1 dragged out a little but in Season 2 they have multiple storylines going so it moves along at a much faster pace.

Season 2 of Tokyo Vice is better than Season 1.  It's been really good!

anyone watched 3 Body Problem on netflix? first episode was intriguing.

went to watch the next episode and realized i had already watched the finale. ha! has my balls, can't wait for season 2. it's an absolutely ridiculous storyline and they're packing so so so much into it but i'm enjoying it.

I'm incredibly sad that curb is over.  Seinfeld was my favorite show in high school and curb has been since it started.  Huge chunk of my life laughing at Larry David's humor. 

Loved how he ended it

I'm also sad. Rarely do you see a show go 11 (12?) seasons and stay consistently excellent. My man Larry always delivers. I hope he has something else up his sleeve for us to enjoy, but he's getting up there, so maybe he just wants to rest on his laurels.

Invincible S2 just ended. Don't really mind they split it all up, they even made a hilarious self jab joke in one of the episodes about how long animation takes. Though I will say the season finale, while good, really spent a ton of time setting up things, so it dragged I feel like. Still excited for S3, whenever it drops.

I've enjoyed After Midnight - it's very dependent on the guests but consistently gets me to laugh out loud.

The Kristen Wiig SNL last weekend was as good an episode as I've seen in a while.

Yeah this is why I hate finding out about a series midway through the first season. That finale didn’t feel like a finale at all.
