Correct me if I'm wrong, but usenet is alive and well for distributing
captured TV shows, movies and the like.

As for discussions, there is a remnant of what used to be.  I
almost never look at it, but for this posting I did.  At least these
seem to be pumping (using groups.google.com):

comp.compilers (slightly)
tor.forsale.computers (spam fed from http://www.cdncc.com)

but this stuff is better done other ways these days.
