    Like the random things you hate thread, but this is for random things that you think are overrated.


    I'll go first:


    Ben & Jerry's ice cream!

    I've had better - and cheaper.

    Netflix
    - it's not the best streaming site, IMO. At least it's not "undoubtably the best" as some claim.

    The Big Bang Theory. I don't get it. It's just not very funny.

    Can you suggest a better one, for that price? (€7,99 per month)

    I have to say, it's not the best site for movies but I subscribed to Netflix for the tv series.
    My to-watch list is almost empty now and there's nothing new that tempts me to watch it. But that also means I'll finally have the time to watch my DVD boxsets.

    Vivian Leigh's performance in Gone With The Wind, I've always thought it was really hammy.

    You don't live in Sweden, but I would say that HBO Nordic (they offer much more than only HBO productions), Viaplay, D Play and C More as every bit as good as Netflix. If I could only choose one streaming site, I'd definitely choose HBO Nordic (which is for all 5 Nordic countries). They have next to all my favorite shows. They offer all HBO shows plus series like Twin Peaks, The Good Fight, The Handmaid's Tale, Mad Men, Penny Dreadful, American Crime, Our Cartoon President, Fargo, Feud: Bette and Joan, Killing Eve, Outlander etc. Plus many movies.

    Key West. It's overpriced, over-built, and full of alcoholics/junkies/sketchy characters. Unless you are already independently wealthy, you can't really move there and expect to prosper because the only available jobs are tourist-related, low-wage jobs. Those who do move there tend to be flighty and not "realistic", having been conned by romanticized images of Ernest Hemingway-types into thinking they can move there and start a new life "in paradise" without having any kind of work ethic. It's a magnet for criminals and criminal-wannabes who steal everything that isn't nailed down. Even if you view it simply as a total tourist trap, it gives too little satisfaction for too much effort to get there. There are dozens of places on the southern tip of Florida or the Bahamas I'd rather visit and not have to deal with the trashiness of KW.

    That's the impression I got from reading the novel.

    There's a reason Hemingway blew his brains out.

    There's not much for the money on Netflix, unless you're into mostly the stuff that's on now-- not much in the way of classics, unless it's the Star Trek franchise, Andy Griffith, or The Twilight Zone (the first of those being the only one I've ever really liked [O-R NBC 60s Trek especially]).
