I'm torn on this one, after all this time.


Did he make up with his co creator Neil as well?
I applaud him for this move, he was able to successfully get them (at least Netflix) to pull it and then get compensation in return. For one person to wield this sort of social power against a juggernaut like Netflix says a lot. He's always been his own person and that's what made his show so successful. It appears both sides came out of this looking good, not too common these days.

I applaud him as well, but what I refer to is the unintended fallout.

Chappelle walked away from a show that employed a fair bit of people who were unemployed thru no fault of their own.

On top of that, it affected his relationship with a person that was an important part of the show's success.


The Chappelle show I'd like, is the one where Dave's friend Neal Brenna is helping to create as well. So my question was, does that mean Neal would be back, since he had a hand in the show's success?

Fair point, he just really seemed to have a hard time taking it all in at the time. Have to wonder where he stands on it now, would love to see it brought back to life.

Has anyone here seen Outlander on Netflix? We watched the first season and while it's a great show the graphic and violent rape scenes are just too much for me to continue.
I watched the first episode and it looks interesting, but seeing statement this makes me wonder - I don’t see how that would add anything to the story as I’m seeing it so far….

I've read the Outlander books and watched every season. Yes, there is a lot of rape and without spoiling it, even worse. But it all balances out in the end. Not for everyone though. Same with those type of scenes in GOT.

I remember a time where such things could be indicated without being graphically shown. Never watched game of thrones… seemed like a “cool” thing to keep up with when it was new each week, but haven’t heard many people re-watching it.

Oh, GOT is highly rewatchable. It lives up to the hype, IMO.

This thread has gotten too long to check...is anyone watching The Expanse? I’m finally getting to it, 4 episodes watched. Very plot heavy, but promising.

Loved Game of Thrones. Not the final ending so much. I usually read the books first and for me, that always makes the difference. As I mentioned above, graphic incidences aren't for everyone. But I have re-watched both Outlander and GOT more than once. I love a long series (book or televised) that you can climb inside and inhabit for a long while.

I hope the upcoming Wheel of Time series Amazon Prime is putting out, lives up to the WOT series.

I've watched all five seasons of The Expanse. Really enjoy the series. Wasn't as wild about S5 only because certain storylines were dragged out too long in my opinion.

I watched the first season of the Expanse. Wasn’t for me. I tried reading the series upon which it’s based...just not for me.

I know, right? I mean, as I mentioned, I haven't seen it yet, but been reading a lot about the show design, showrunner intent, where it might fall in the MCU continuum.

To not be too spoiler-y, consider the ending of the MCU Phase 3, then this show, then what we know about Phase 4 - there's definitely some connective tissue with the current/planned Disney shows :D

Oh, it's fun, it's good, caught up, and watched EP 5 this morning.

EP 4 has a __huge__ pivot o_O

EP5 there's a new character, well, "new", er, 'nuff said, hahaha, but it's goddamn AMAZING, I had a serious nerdgasm ... :love: :geek:

EP06, OMG, how can this get any better ...

EP07, "Hold my beer ..."

It's so good, the wife actually got totally caught up in it, now, since PE06, we're watching together :D

Anybody who thought Apple would be avoiding any kind of risqué sexual content, their show ”Losing Alice” should put that to rest. It’s a creepy psychological thriller, but don’t watch it with the kids around….
