        Broadchurch S1 was fantastic.

        I only watched PoI for a while as a guilty pleasure to see Lucy..... decent show though.

        • Fauda S3 comes out today.. Such a good show. Some of the chicks are yummy too.
          Can't decide if my weekend will be a Fauda weekend or a Bosch weekend, or both....

            That was a really good series. The acting was fantastic.

            • First 4 episodes in on Bosch. Their use of the city is more like a character than a setting. Makes me feel like I want to go back there and live.

              This has become my favorite recurring series.

                  The book series is a really good guilty-pleasure type beach read.

                  Funnier than you in 2012.

                    I'm fixin' to start it shortly. Had to watch a few eps from last season to get back into the vibe.

                    Agree on the setting as a character thing. I love those kind of shows. Probably while I enjoy crime shows Shetland (Scottish Isles) and Hinterland (Wales coast) so much.

                    The theme song gets me groovin' too. "Keep swingin' brother"

                      It's a great show. The ending is... interesting. The Trinity Killer season is outstanding. You'll never look at John Lithgow the same.

                      My favorite quote of all time is: "Surprise, Muthafucka!" That's probably not a surprise, my potty-mouth and all.

                              • So glad the Bulls Doc starts tonight because I am in complete Post-Bosch depression.

                                Up next:

                                Billions S.5 starts May 3 so I should be able to binge that sometime in August and then S.4 of Goliath drops in the fall after that.

                                Hopefully Goliath S.4 comes out sometime soon.

                                  Depressed because it'll be another year till a new season comes out, or depressed because you didn't like it?

                                  I'm stoked for Billions. Definitely a top 5 show for me, if not top 2.

                                  • Anyone that was old enough to know MJ. 'The Jordan Rules' is a book I read back in the mid 90's. Must read situation if your interested in understanding the man that made basketball relevant.

                                              Started current season of Bosch and knocked out three episodes last night. As good as the previous seasons.

                                                  I finished it last night. It gets better as you get deeper into it. I think most of the appeal is that it's an absolute train wreck collection of people who take white trash freaky to the next level and you just can't look away. Think "Best of Walmart shoppers" and throw in some tigers and extra meth.

                                                    What I found most interesting about it were the similarities between the main characters. They're all con men who use exotic animals to lure in vulnerable people, secure their loyalty, and then exploit them as slave labor. Joe targeted recently released felons for his shitty zoo; Doc Antle targets hot young virgins for his creepy sex cult; Carole's got an army of crazy cat ladies online and volunteering thousands of unpaid hours at her "sanctuary", etc. Joe respects Antle as one who has pulled off the same grift, just much more successfully.

                                                    Goode could have gotten a lot of mileage out of emphasizing how these people are all predators of a different sort.

                                                          Yeah, I strongly agree. Joe also used drugs to get straight guys who were vulnerable and addicted to go along with being in a gay relationship with him. At least with Joe & Antle, they more or less were honest about what manipulative con men they were. Carole comes out of the whole thing as being the most unlikeable because she's such a complete overly dramatic, professional victim, phony. I found myself throughout hoping she got mauled and eaten by a tiger... slowly.

                                                            MJ had 3 distinct periods of his career:

                                                            Pre-Phil
                                                            MJ vs Bad Boys
                                                            Comeback MJ

                                                            MJ was the highlight film of highlight films pre-Phil and you knew the Lakers, Celtics and then the Pistons were gonna win it all.

                                                            As the Triangle was mastered, Pippen and Grant hit their stride and the Bulls developed the perfect roster. The starters, and endless supply of 6-10 bodies off the bench and at least three, 3 pt specialists who were always wide open when MJ swung the ball or a big kicked it out. This is when MJ started playing smarter.

                                                            The comeback, MJ bascially became a shorter, more athletic Larry Bird. He was always one step ahead and became an almost exclusive jump shooter. But he always had that extra move or gear when he wanted to use it.

                                                            What I think is odd is most kids think the Championship Jordan that they see in most highlights was always MJ. Nope, if they would watch full games from 84-88, they'd have a heart attack and never mention LBJ's name again in the same sentence as MJ.

                                                                      Originally posted by SonofOahu View Post

Which is why I'm waiting till the season is done and I can binge by DVR/OD. Probably going to watch the past seasons again. I rewatched S1 before S2, and realized I missed a ton the first time around.

                                                                                    The premier of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels was pretty darn good. Natalie Dormer is still smoking hot. Love how they use here. The show escalated quickly, so will be interesting to see how it progresses.

                                                                                    The series finale of Homeland was great. Perfect ending, which you can rarely say about long running series.

                                                                                    Rewatched S2 of Fauda last week to get ready for S3. Such an awesome show. Watched it this time with dubs, not subs, and not bad at all. The suicide episode, still hit me in the gut all over again. Nurit, Shirin, and Daria... all yum

We'll see if the story line and writing carries through but as of now, I'm as high on this as I am Lost in Space (which didn't get any lover here either)

                                                                                            Boyd Crowder is maybe my favorite TV character ever, though. Walton Goggins is so good in that role.

                                                                                              Justified is and always will be a perfect TV show.

                                                                                              For real though, it's great because Olyphant masterfully pulls off the 'good ol' boy' thing while still being cool as hell.

                                                                                              Boyd Crowder is maybe my favorite TV character ever, though. Walton Goggins is so good in that role.

                                                                                              Dewey Crow... he could have his own sitcom spinoff of his adventures trying to get laid in the whorehouse.

                                                                                              1. I'm the first person in my family not born in KY. Olyphant doesn't sound KY at all. And letting HIM wear that hat, just makes me think he's gonna go talk to Al at the Gem. I LOVE his role in Deadwood. Still, it works because you nailed it, he's badass cool in the part.

                                                                                              2. Boyd Crowder is believable and perfectly cast. He sounds southern. He should also be cast in the remake of the Mask. That man has a mouthful of teeth.

                                                                                              3. Dewey Crow? Sell the character to Better Call Saul because he needs to be in the BB Universe. Maybe Walter & Jesse need to resurface a little east of Hazard in Pike Co? Just marry the two shows.

                                                                                              4. Wynn Duffy! That actor, (Jerry something) played one of my Top 5 all time favorite characters = Kirk on Dear John. We literally used to mimic him like you would a character off Good Fellas. I was just introduced to Duffy in the last episode so I'm stoked to see where it goes.

                                                                                                    I watched E1 last night and was impressed. Excellent special effects and production quality. We'll see if the story line and writing carries through but as of now, I'm as high on this as I am Lost in Space (which didn't get any lover here either)
                                                                                                    I'm a Trekkie from way back, so yes watched it, and posted something when it first came out. I thought Picard was much better than their other ST series. Much much better. Wouldn't say it's an awesome show, but good if you like ST, or the actors.
