looking for something good
If you are into weird Dateline type stuff try "Nobody Saw a Thing". It's about the all the odd murders and deaths in tiny Skidmore, MO starting with the towns people assassinating Ken Rex McElroy on mainstreet in broad daylight back in the 80s.

If you like quirky- Sneaky Pete was great.

It took a few episodes, but Tin Star with Tim Roth was decent. Especially first couple seasons.

These are not new but I loved Catastrophe and Red Oaks on Prime.
Red Oaks was great. Fun to watch movies that remind of 80's type comedies like Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Caddy Shack, Back to School

Yeah. How do you even prepare someone for that right? And you can’t even begin to describe it even a little because no matter what you say it’s crazy and you can’t give it away.
The scene with The Deep and Timothy at the end of episode 3 actually bothered me more from an "I dont know if I can watch this" point of view.

The Northman is a movie I swear was just in theaters and it's already on Peacock. Paramount+ got Jackass Forever and Sonic 2 really early too. All the streaming services get their share which is awesome and bad. We need to cut down on unnecessary spending but I keep justifying paying for all of them.

In terms of IP access Peacock should be a major player . I think HBO and Prime are the best at putting out original new stuff though. I know Netflix has some good stuff but the % of it that is drivel turns me off. I can watch something on HBO knowing nothing about it and odds are it is good.

Anybody seen the sci fi flick The Vast of Night?

Watched it last night. I thought it was awful, lol. Takes 1/3 of the movie for something to happen. The middle 2/3 is a dude talking and the final 1/3 tries to build up to the last 3 minutes. A boring, waste of time in my opinion.

Been wanting to watch it but just haven't been able to bring myself to commit the time. Apparently my subconscious knew it was going to be boring.

This is an outstanding 2012 war movie that I somehow missed watching till last year. Highly recommend this one.

Your description of Netflix is exactly how I feel about Hulu, except for the "has some good stuff" part. If it weren't for Handmaids Tale and Letterkenny I'd never access that app.

The Boys. But there is a scene fifteen minutes into this new season that is utterly bonkers that will turn a lot of people off I think. We however found ourselves laughing and saying what the fuckkk just happened.
Wife and I went from mouths agape to busting out laughing. Love season 3 so far
