    Have become a fan of Director Tiller Russell. His docs are great. Just watch The Last Narc & Operation Odessa. He also directed The Seven Five (awesome) and The Night Stalker.

    Watched Ken Burns' 3 part doc on Ernest Hemingway the this week. Very good, but depressing as hell.

    Gangs of London S1 will premier on AMC tonight. I watched it last year via Kodi and highly recommend it. If IIRC, scored over an 8 on IMDB.
    Very good cast and writing IMO.

    It was a pain in the ass deleting. Tip.... don't try to select stuff on multiple pages. I went through and selected every page, then tried to delete, and found out you can only do one page at a time.
    Then you have to delete your trash too. When deleting your trash, it's easier when you hit the select all, which I didn't see early on....
    Try again. I deleted a bunch about a week ago.

    Ted Lasso...

    That show has no right to be as good, and as funny, and as HEARTWARMING as it is, especially considering its origin as a one-dimensional marketing ploy for the Premier League.

    I can't say enough good things about the show lol. It might not have quite the same impact on other people, but the constant messages of positivity and the continuous personal breakthroughs are right in my wheelhouse. Sudeikis was perfect, and the show hits on all of the personality-based cliches that you would expect... but still somehow makes it feel fresh and impactful.

    It probably helps that it was about the polar opposite of Deadwood in terms of tone and style, so coming off of a Deadwood marathon, it was a perfect palate cleanser.

    I'll be itching for season 2 now.

    Will do, but it will be a minute. When I tried to PM Lion, I got an error message saying I have 200ish saved messages, and my limit is 50 lol... Seems every time a I sent a donation or beer to someone, it's now in my mail.... So I'll be deleting/cleaning for a few. Not sure if they decreased the limit, or the new version stores donations/gift notifications differently.

It's actually kind of surprising the way his characterization unfolds early in the narrative.

    As for the cliff hanger, I think I said out loud to my wife, 'no f*cking way they are about to leave us with this'... and then sure enough, they did.

    Sold! What service is that one on?

    I am perhaps Boyd Crowder's biggest fanboy.

    I could watched 7 straight hours of Raylan and Boyd just sitting at a table and talking to each other.

    And Deputy Marshal Tim Gutterson is the greatest unrecognized comedian of our time.

    The series and the movie mirrored each other so unbelievably well. I’d love to know if they planned for that, or if the end of the show stewed and simmered in the creators’ minds long enough that they decided it was time for an answer.

    The show ended in a way that was unsatisfactory in terms of the characters and their progression... but that was the point, right? No epic showdown, no last trick up Al’s sleeve. Just everyone sacrificing for the camp, because the camp was more important than anything. Everyone takes it on the chin, knowing it sucks but it’s right.

    And then the movie! Everything is repaid, and they captured this feeling as if it were the town itself paying a debt. It was a perfect close to the story, in every regard imo.

    Finally: Calamity Fuckin’ Jane!

    Very bingeable, and highly recommended if you're looking for something new. Netflix recently announced that series 2 would be out this summer, as well, so something to look forward to.

    On subs and dubs. I try to do subs when I can. Sometimes I start with subs, to get a better feel for the character, and then switch to dubs. Most dubbing is poorly done, and starting in that mode ruins the show for me.

    Good show.

    Watched the movie Honest Thief with Liam Neeson and Kate Walsh. Typical Neeson action movie, but pretty decent.

    It's from one of Roberto Saviano's books. IMO, great series. If you enjoyed it, check out Saviano's Gomorrah on HBO Max. Better than ZZZ IMO, and I loved ZZZ.

    Also, just loved Andrea Riseborough. Thought she was great in Bloodline. Took me a while to even recognize her as her appearance can change a lot.

    Agree, Deadwood the movie was pretty much meh.

    After watching the entire series, I still know absolutely nothhing about chess, admittedly. The show was fantastic, though.

I looked up her list of movies & shows and realized she was in Passchendaele. I remember her from that movie, but what I REALLY remember her from and why she looked so familiar is that she played Vera, the neighbor girl Leckie wrote to throughout the war and eventually married, in The Pacific. I remember watching it and thinking that she was some kinda seriously good looking.

    Top Boy is probably next for me after I finish Hannibal. It looks good.
    She's the lead in Mary Kills People (series) too, that I've been told is very good, and got good reviews. I've been wanting to watch a series called Blue Moon that has her and Karine Vanasse (smoking too), but I just haven't been able to find it yet. Speaking of Karine Vanasse, check out a series called Cardinal when you have time. Her and Billy Campbell are two detectives in Canada. Pretty good.

    Top Boy has 3 seasons. The early installment is listed on Netflix as Top Boy: Summerhouse. Just make sure you start with that from 2011. One of my buds started watching 2019 season without knowing it had two previous seasons in 2011 and 2013. It's good stuff.

    If you can handle subs, check out Gomorrah on HBOMax. Awesome show.

    TMYS S2 will be one of bigger "can't wait" new seasons along with Gamorrah's final season. It's rare that the final eps are both great, and sets things up well for the next season.

    YH in my opinion, could have been so much better. Still quality with Cranston though. I really enjoyed the NO vibe, but thought they could have done more along those lines.

    First, this show is awesome. Ian McShane deserves all the hype he's ever gotten over this show, and Timothy Olyphant is clearly channeling Frontier Raylan Givens, but with even more internal rage.

    It's crazy how the characters can be so rough and crass, and yet how you can get some pretty heartwarming feelings from the subtle goings-on anyway.

    Also, I'm not sure if it's intentional, or if I just have a super dry sense of humor these days, but there are some genuinely hilarious moments in this show that I'm not sure are 100% intended for comedic affect. Swearengen and Wu trying to communicate? Comedy gold. Doc Cochran seething with more internal rage than even Seth Bullock? Very hilarious to me, even though I know it's because of what he's seen in his time as a doctor, which is also tragic. Jewel being the only person in the whole camp that's allowed to give Swearengen shit? Awesome, and also heartwarming.

    Bullock and Star being the only guys both unfortunate enough and kind enough to attend the reverend's funeral services on a consistent basis is also funny to me, though the reverend's story is also profoundly sad.

    What a good show! Excited to see the fireworks during season 2.

    I also liked Your Honor, though not as much. I love Bryan Cranston but I would agree, a little too predictable at the end.

    It seems dark, but I think they captured the state of society and superheroes pretty well on a basis of "if this were actually a real thing," especially the part where they gave a realistic look at a Superman that has mental health, socialization and familial issues.

    Karl Urban is incredible as Billy Butcher. I love MM and Frenchie. The chick that plays Starlight could have been billed as Kate Mara and I almost wouldn't have noticed. The dude playing Homelander is also legit.

    Really excited to see what season three brings, whenever that may be. I know the show is based very loosely on a comic series, and I read a brief overview of the plotlines to see where things might generally go... but the show has a lot of options. Season two provided an ending that could operate as a pretty clean break, but it also wouldn't surprise me for season three to pick up with that "clean break" having been totally fucked off-screen.
    Two thumbs up from me. Really enjoyed the show for those reasons. After I watched S1 I thought to myself this was such an obviously good concept for a show how did it not happen sooner. Or, why didn't I think of that. In a world full of superheroes there would obviously be some morally bankrupt ones, right? Doing "good" solely for their own benefit. Excited for S3.

I've always though Lily Rabe was a quality actress, but never thought of her as a lead. She did a great job IMO. And always thought she was cute, not necessarily hot...but boy she was fit AF. Brenneman and Linklater were really good too. Good supporting cast too. Looks like it's set up well for a S2.

    Also finished the last episode of Your Honor last week. I thought the series overall was good, but was a bit let down with the predictable final episode.

    Started watching S2 of Mirzapur (Indian gangster series) on Amazon. If you enjoy the Indian style, I'd recommend trying S1. The finale was pretty brutal. It's a nice change up in terms of style. I've heard that Sacred Games is pretty awesome too.

    Indeed. She reminds me of a younger Emma Thompson, who I always thought was seriously attractive.

    I've just started watching Hannibal. Not really into it enough yet to have an opinion, but so far, so good.

    Yeah, there's some spots that make you wonder what the intent was.

    Finished "Reckoning". Good story line about a teacher that is a serial killer. Main character (detective) is hard to get into as I don't think he's a real talented actor.
    Yup, several spots. I thought they tried to get too artsy and moody at times.

    I watched Reckoning a while back when it came out on Canadian TV IIRC. I'm a big fan of Aden Young in Rectify. If you've never seen it/Rectify, give it a shot. It's in my top 25.

    Finally finishing Borgen on Netflix. Great show about Danish politics. The dubbing is well done if you don't like subs. I like it better than Occupied (which I thought was great), another northern European show.

    Also watched a few episodes of Bloodlands (UK/Ireland) about a detective looking into old IRA murders. Nesbit is great as always as the lead, and Lisa Dwan is smoking. Good show all around, and only 4 eps. I'm sure it will be available on one of the streaming services in the US shortly.

    I also noticed that the UK version of Wallander is on HBOMax. Great show with Kenneth Branagh playing the lead. They have some very good non-US based series (Luther, Gomorrah, ++). That's three shows I'd say are in my all time top 25.

    Started a re-watch of True Detective S1 this weekend. Such a brilliant show. Season 2 was bad, and 3 was just OK, but S1 was top 10 all time for me. Such an easy show to binge.

    On a related note, saw 2 things. One, the FX Pizzolatto/McConaughey project (Redeemer) looks to have fallen through. I was a bit excited when they first announced it. Pizzolatto is now trying to negotiate his way out of the FX deal. And two, HBO is now talking about True Detective S4. They first said they were interviewing writers, but wonder if things have changed since Pizzolatto might be free.

    I'd really love it if they brought back MM and/or WH back for a season. I'd love to see them go deeper, and chase the remaining Tuttle, and others from the vid.

    Not on the level as BSG though IMO. BSG was crazy good, not to mention overflowing with hot chicks.

    Did you hear they're supposed to do a re-reboot, IIRC on Peacock. Supposedly a different storyline, so not exactly a reboot.
    Haven’t heard about the BsG reboot.

    It’s hard to compare to BSG but the Expanses story is a very interesting scenario. The sci-fi is relatively real and the characters are good. Just enjoyable to watch.

    Watched Once upon a time in Venice last night. Bruce Willis action/comedy. A little corny at times, but worth the watch.
