    "If you are a movie buff like me, you must see the classis "Blade Runner". It is about a crazy screwed up Los Angelos in 2019. It stars Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard. It has a lot of action, a good story, and cool special effects for it's day. Pick this up today and you will enjoy 2 hours of old school movie fun."

    "I am a huge GOT fan, and I didn't think that any season would be as good as the first (since duh...Khal Drogo) but this season was just epic. I loved the reunions of characters, and joining of others that had not met prior to this season. This show is so well put together and the build up was perfect. I also just finished the Conquest and Rebellion which was an animated history of Westeros since the conquest of Aegon Targaryen, and I thought it was put together very well. I loved that they used the actors of GOT to narrate the story behind the conquest of each kingdom. A great addition for people who may have not read the books and may be somewhat confused about the background of the show. So all in all, if your looking for a new series to become addicted to, this is the one. Enjoy! "

    "This is a gripping and well-made series that delves into the drug trade, focusing on Pablo Escobar. I find the acting and realism of the series to be very good. It can be very violent because it delves into turf wars between rival groups and cartels, so viewers should be aware of that. But overall, if you like to see what it's like inside the drug trade, this is a great choice. "
