    Been watching Helstrom (Hulu), about a brother and sister with two possessed parents (father was a serial killer). The son is more or less an exorcist working for the Church. Pretty good.

    After hearing about it for a decade I started watching Breaking Bad. Admittedly, it is hard to watch at times due to impacts of the tragedy of addiction.

    Then I watched the Social Dilemma, and if you aren't looking for them the parallels aren't immediately obvious. Social media vs methamphetamines/drug abuse? Obviously not the same, right?

    Drugs are addictive, cause family disruptions, cause mental health problems, lead to death and suicide, and very literally destroy lives. They do this through activating the dopaminergic reward centers of the brain until one literally cannot think about anything else.

    But social media doesn't do this right? Our phones don't do that right? But contemplate another question. At what age did your brain have access to social media or all the apps loaded on a mobile phone? And then answer this, at what age do people often try their first mind altering substance (thus leading to addiction)?

    If the answer to these questions are similar ages for you I'm sorry, you probably are a gen z'er. Gen z'ers have lower rates of drug abuse than prior generations but have staggeringly higher rates of mental health disorders and suicide. Why? Social media became ubiquitous on mobile devices around 2010, just in time for the first gen z'ers to start junior high.

    So Walter White peddling methamphetamine and Facebook peddling likes aren't all that different are they?

    Stumbled across Schitt's Creek (Comedy Central) with Eugene Levy. LMAO. Great cast, and Annie Murphy has some great legs.

    Been watching South Park in the background today. Every other commercial is for the Daily Show.... clearly still as propagandized as always, good lord. Do people actually take that dude seriously??

    For the Billions fans

    Billions (Showtime) renewed for a 6th season. The pandemic-shortened 5th season, meanwhile, will return for its final five episodes in 2021.

    About half way through the latest season (5th) of The Bureau (Le Bureau des Lťgendes).
    Fantastic show. Great writing.

    I watched it in 1970. lol

    Watched the first few episodes of Lie to Me with Tim Roth. E1 was pretty good, but after E3 I can see the story line is going to be pretty much the same from one episode to another.

All the while the Colonel (Kyle Chandler) keeps raising the number of missions required before you can get discharged. Well written and recommended.

    BCS is good, but it's a different kind of good. More slow burn. It's just not comparable to BB to me though. I do think this final season coming up may be more unhinged though.

    Haven’t watched BCS. Heard mixed reviews on it. We may get into it, unsure at the moment.

    Almost done with season 4 of Gomorrah. It's definitely now in my top 10 and ahead of the Sopranos. Dark, gritty, and well written. Leaves you feeling sick at times. If you don't mind subs, highly recommend it. If you have HBO, seasons 1-4 plus the movie (between S3 and S4) should be available by end of year. The yet to be aired S5 as well sometime in 2021.

    If you enjoyed ZeroZeroZero, it's by the same writer (Roberto Saviano), but IMO much better. And I really enjoyed ZeroZeroZero.

    Soaking in the grandeur of Cobra Kai's tongue-in-cheek cheesy 80s humor, seamlessly melding kick-ass 80s rock culture with pussy gender-neutral woke millennial culture. -At least from Johnny Lawrence's perspective.

    Finished The Son. I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
    The 1963 show was pretty solid. I liked it anyway

    The wife and I finished it last night. Quite good and recommendable.

    We just finished Safe. Enjoyed it, but felt Broadchurch was better.

    Started The Stranger on Netflix last night. Definitely will continue watching.

    Love Cobra Kai. Still has that 80's cheesy vibe which I like. They also do a nice job of fitting in shots from the original movie for a nice tie in.

    To me, S1 was better because it focused on the Daniel-Johnny dynamic. S2 focused on the kids, more.

    I'm going to try and not spoil this, but the episode in S2 where the gang gets back together hit me pretty hard. We went through the same thing, earlier this year.

One night when she was a junior in HS, her parents had gone out. Her boyfriend came over and they ended up having sex on the front porch. The parents came home way earlier than expected and they got lit up by the high beams as her parents turned into the driveway. There was their little princess, naked and getting boned doggy style, square in the headlights. Awkward moment.
    She was also in "True Blood" and spent quite a lot of time naked in that show, too. I think she got typecast as a vixen, in that 2010-ish time frame. She was the girl Leonard wanted to cheat with in "Big Bang Theory" too. Not that I'm complaining.

    I guess they couldn't claim that he was giving her the Heimlich?

    I never knew there was a BBC mini-series of this. I loved the book and Le Carres' other Smiley novels, so this just got added to my list. I'll probably watch it next after Dexter. Thanks for the heads up on it.

    Yup, the family connections are half the story. I ended up doing a full rewatch before S3, and even found some stuff online (genealogy/time tree), before I started.

I'm tempted to do the same after I finish the Sopranos rewatch I'm doing now. Trying to decide between Dexter, Big Love, and a few more. The lack of new content, matched with general Covid situation and lack of sports, is driving me to revisit....

    I've been watching the Bureau (french intelligence series) for a while now doing a couple eps a night. Very very good show. S1 is free on Amazon if interested. Lot's of Middle East narratives. Not over the top stuff like a lot a shows these days, but really well written and acted.

    I'm two episodes in and hooked. Great premise and really well done. I like the mind games, damaged genius, insightful self-narration thing.

    Wasn't the best, but didn't think it was bad. There was talk for a while of a S9 reboot. That would be awesome.

    Speaking of sequels/prequels/reboots, did you hear they are re-releasing the Godfather 3 with a new ending (the version Coppola originally wanted). Won't spoil it, but you can read below. The new title pretty much tells you where it's going.

    https://variety.com/2020/film/news/g...rs-1234758590/

    Personally, I still wish they'd make the Godfather 4, which is really similar to part 2 with flashbacks to young Santino and current day (GF time).
