That was a crazy show. I had no idea any of that even happened. People are messed up.

I watched Hap and Leonard and liked it. It's a buddy crime drama where the two main characters get caught up in some murders. It's set in East TX, which gives it some nice character.

There were 3 seasons of it, but netflix has only the first two so far.

The same executive producers (the Duplass brothers) also did 'Wild Wild Country,' also on Netflix. It's about the Rajneeshpuram compound in Oregon. I found it to be a little bit slower (it's six episodes, vs four episodes for Evil Genius) but still pretty solid. Would recommend.

Somehow, I'd managed to not hear about either the pizza bomber or the Rajneesh guys before these documentaries.

The Confession Tapes is good if watching stories of people who had coerced confessions is your jam.

Love is good if you like the awkward Apatowy type thing

The Toys That Made Us is good if you're old

The End of the F-ing World is good

GLOW is good and I think season 2 is coming up

Season 2 of GLOW started kind of slow for me, but by episode 4 or 5 it really hit its stride. Episode 8 is one of the funniest 30 minutes of TV I've seen in a while.

I don't know if this term applies.
