    Just finished the 3rd season of Broadchurch. Loved the show. Wished they would have done a 4th season.

    Watched the first four episodes of The Last Dance. Would probably enjoy it more if I were a Bulls fan, but I do like the insights and the stuff that happened behind the scenes that the average fan doesn't get to see.

    One can not over critique bad accents. When the best soundin redneck on your show is from Australia, sumpin iz wrohng.

    Justified is awesome. I'm a big fan of Goggins and Tim O. And the chicks were good too. Both Ava and Wynona. I love Bosch and thought Justified was just as good.

    BTW, I'm from Indy, but have plenty of fam from KY. It was hard on the ears until I got used to it. But didn't take long.

    I'm a big fan of Stewart (Picard) too. Pill is a good actress too, and Treadaway has plenty of cred (was great in Mr. Mercedes). Loved how they brought in old characters throughout the series, but didn't rely on them. And I'm always down for Jeri Ryan... Yum.... I've always thought Hurd was hot too.

    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)

    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.

    Wynn Duffey's eyebrows also earn the show an automatic +1 on the 1-10 scale.

    His KY accent isn't great... but there are a few guys that make limited appearances as law enforcement from other parts of KY over the course of the show, and they are so bad they'll make you laugh.

    There's one guy who clearly read "Sheriff in Kentucky" as "Sound as Alabama as Possible," and then another guy who goes even further with it, straight "Foghorn Leghorn" style.
    I'll get through it. I've had to put up with the accents on Shameless which is the most un-Southside sounding bunch of yahoos.

    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.

    Had a great weekend of watching too much TV.

    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

    3. S3x6 - Decoherence

    S3x4 is also really well done.
    My buddy was hyped, and is making it really hard for me to wait for the season to get done.

    I'm rewatching S2 of Fauda right now, which is really really good, so I'm safe for a few days lol before I'm tempted. Fauda is such a great show, but I'm on a TV high and might need to go directly to WW after I'm done.

    Penny Dreadful: City of Angels is starting Sunday on Showtime. I enjoyed the original Penny Dreadful years ago (Eva Green, yum). Looks interesting, so going to give the first couple of episodes a try.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hopefully Goliath S.4 comes out sometime soon.

    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"
