    Watched the first two eps of Marcella S3 today.
    Good stuff so far. Much better than S2 IMO.
    Anna Friel is tasty.

    I forgot Lovecraft Country started this Sunday on HBO. JJ Abrams and Jordan Peele joint. Trailer looks interesting. Hope it's high on quality and low on SJW crap.

    Pretty good cast. Michael Williams (The Wire ++) is always great, and add Vance and Majors. Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Abbey Lee Kershaw are very easy on they eyes.

    Down to three (2 gals and 1 dude) on Alone. Season finale is next week. They are up to day 55, so either none of the three made it 100 days or they will skip a bunch of days next week. The guy from Indy tapped last night and probably a good idea for him. He was struggling to find food and decided to call and tap. He's in his shelter packing his gear, then turns around to see his shelter has caught on fire. His unable to put it out, but manages to get most of his gear out. If he hadn't called before the fire, he would have after.

    With the lack of new content, started rewatching Love/Hate and the Sopranos. For those with Kodi, or willing to purchase off Amazon, Love/Hate is great Irish organized crime series. Won a lot of awards, and there's some folks you'll recognize (Aiden Gillen of GoT, Barry Keoghan of Dunkirk and other stuff, Killian Scott, Ruth Negga, etc.). Anyway, great show (8.5 rating on IMDB) and highly recommend. 5 short season (28 total eps).

    Also finally finished the latest season of Peaky Blinders a few weeks ago. Great quality as always, but the story lines are getting a little stale. S6 should be better given how they left things with Michael.

    Did ya know she (Teeter) is Michael Landon's daughter lol. I agree. Good, and unique addition although I liked the girl ranch hand they had last year too. Teeter is far funnier, but I think the chick last year was seriously smokin'.

    I also like the barrel racing chicks, though not near as much as Teeter. I really enjoy both Loyd and Jimmy characters, so glad they're getting more time with the whole chick story line. I was hoping Jimmy would continue doing the rodeo, but that seems to be over?

    I'm guessing it'll be saved by something like Indian bones on the land, or some endangered species lol. Beth figuring out a way to take that company down is probably the safest bet.

    Whatever happens, I'm sure it'll be saved. They've already said there's another season. I think I'm more interested in what the new old guy (Wade) stole from John a long time ago.

    Great show. There's some discussion on it a page or so back (beware I think there are some spoilers). Several on the board are fans. Sad that the series is done, but was disappointed a bit in S3.

    I haven't had a chance to watch last night's episode yet. I'll try to see it this evening. Yeah, Dutton will find a way to save the ranch.

    Watched Hail! Cesar two nights ago. Liked it, though it checked a lot of boxes for me, so others might be less enthused; and the plot was pretty scattered even by the Coens' standards. But it's free on Netflix right now, so I'd suggest checking it out if you like the Coen brothers or movies about the golden age of Hollywood. Can see why Disney cast Alden Ehrenreich as the lead in Solo.

    Watched Blade Runner 2049 last night. The cinematography and score were amazing (as expected), but it left me disappointed. It was at least an hour too long (165m run time!), and the ending was anticlimactic. Ana de Armas is the most beautiful woman in Hollywood, though, and she's worth the price of admission alone.

    Naked and Afraid was a little more entertaining than usual. The guy they counted on to hunt was removed because he hadn't taken a dump in three weeks and it was affecting him. The other hunter fell into depression. He was sleep walking and stood over one of the ladies who looks up to see his package. Producers ended up pulling him from the show.

    My money is still on the dude from Alaska to win Alone. He built himself a food cache to store his oxen. The way he constructed it, it should keep his food safe.

    You know my feelings on Justified. lol

    Wrapped up Damages on Hulu. Not bad, but started to be the same thing over and over, so after watching the first three seasons, I skipped to the final season to see how it ended.

    Naked and Afraid has been pretty good this season. Stuck in Africa, temps have been around 120 - 124 everyday. Taking it's toll.

    Started Mandalorian last night. So far, so good.

    In other news:

    Canceled cable, canceled Netflix, canceled CBS All Access.

    Signed up for commercial free Hulu+Disney+ESPN. Will always have Prime Video.

    Ordered an HD antennae (and cell booster antennae too). Gonna take advantage of the 40+ English channels in Phoenix.

    We're scheduled to get Cox Gigablast in the next few months. They're working a few blocks away.

    We've agreed to get Showtime in Sept to binge Billions and whatever else they have. From now on, we're gonna jump around and hit the best shows. Love em & leave em.

    There's always the Firestick for Kodi. I just have the worst luck keeping it updated.

    Last night on Alone, this dude drops a musk oxen with his bow. Had to track it for several hours. It was starting to show a loss of blood, but was still moving afoot. Realizing he was running out of time and daylight to dress it once it dropped, he snuck up on it and stabbed it with his knife. Pretty ballsy.

    For those with Comcast (likely others too), and who like international series, Walter Presents is free through 07/19 (this Sunday).

    Walter is basically a guy that handpicks Euro series for the streaming service as well as CH4/PBS programming.. Small catalog, but some good series. I watched Monster and River, two short series so far, and starting Though Shalt not Kill in a few. I've already seen 13 Commandments and wasn't a big fan (so you might want to avoid).

    My 9-year-old daughter loves Bugs Bunny and Tom & Jerry, but had never seen Foghorn Leghorn, The Coyote And Roadrunner, Tweety And Sylvester, Porky Pig, Yosemite Sam, Speedy Gonzales nor Pepe Le Pew. I got all of the old WB cartoons and we've been watching a little of each. She's loving them, I'm having a great time seeing so many of my favorites from when I was a kid, and it's great father/daughter time. She saw Rabbit Season, Duck Season for the first time and about died laughing.

    Yes, this is a fantastic show but you have to be completely focused on what is going on as there are so many characters (or are there?) times and dimensions.

    It’s,... really freaking good. I’m like surprised how good it is. Ducktales is one of my top three favorite shows ever so I was totally prepared to compare and shit all over it. I’m very pleasantly surprised. I highly recommend for anyone who grew up with the Disney afternoon hour cartoons like I did. There are tons of Darkwing Duck and Tailspin references in it. It tied up lose ends in terms of who is exactly who in the Duck family, has much more of my boy Donald in it and is just really well made all around. It took an episode to get used to the new animation and voice acting but yeah,... Two thumbs up.

    I think the "mystery" aspect was revealed a little too earlier and now its about "just following along". Doesn't have the same revaltions as prior

    On Alone there's one dude who has been real slow on building his shelter. He's building a small log cabin. Notching the logs so they lock in. Excellent idea, except he's put it off so long that it's starting to snow and he's only got three rows done. I think this is going to catch up with him.

    Totally into Suburra now after finishing S1 and starting S2. Great characters. I wouldn't call it great, but it's easily very good. I'm really looking forward to watching the pre-series movie, that is actually a sequel to the TV show. Makes me wish Netflix would finally add Gomorrah S3 and S4.

    Not my cup of tea either, but it's getting pretty solid reviews if we're using Netflix shows as a standard. I do like horror with a good plot, just not sure I can buy into the "kickass teen girl" stuff. Might turn it on while I'm big-cookin' this weekend and see how it goes.

    I’m still heartbroken about remaking Unsolved Mysteries without a narrator, re-enactments, spooky music and really any of the signature UM feel to it. They basically made a good true crime doc and slapped the UM brand on it.

    I noticed that there were several who were working on some pretty good shelters compared to past seasons. Build it with a fireplace and large enough to stockpile wood and the zero degree days can be managed, but it still comes down to the mental side.

    Started watching Suburra: Blood on Rome last night. Pretty good. 8.0 on IMDB. It's a prequel to the movie Suburra (which is also available on Netflix), which is based on a book about true events. More or less organized crime in Rome (normal Italians and gypsies), with politicians, the Sicilian mafia, and the Vatican sprinkled in.

    I'm watching the prequel series before the movie. If you try it out..... If possible, do subs not dubs, or at least to start the series. Always good to get the feel of the character and their actual voice.

    I watched Hamilton last night. I give it a solid 8.5/10.

    The music was very good to excellent but suffered from the same problem that many musicals can't seem to avoid...3-4 slow songs that are meant to highlight the performers voices but end up just being boring. They should have just went with the Uncut Gems approach and kept the foot on the gas the entire show.

    Lin-Manuel Miranda was the 4th best performer at best. I saw In The Heights on Broadway and thought he was much better there. The Aaron Burr actor and the Angelica Schuyler actress were incredible though. Also really enjoyed the Mindhunters actor as King George.

    My biggest problem was the ending. It felt super rushed, but also it would have made more sense to end it right when he was shot by Aaron Burr. Instead they try to do one final song highlighting Eliza Schuyler Hamilton for some reason that made no sense to me.

    It's all carryover, but the Ss do take on different levels with additional storylines. You'll understand as you continue. But enjoy S1. It's one of the best Ss of TV out there.

    In terms of recommendations, next up for me will likely be Suburra: Blood on Rome. A bunch of folks have said it's really good. Also gets great ratings across the board from IMDB, Google, and RT. I'm told it's loosely based on true happenings (mafia, politicians, Vatican).

    S3 of Dark was entertaining but definitely not as good as S1 or S2. The one thing I really didn't understand was why there was no Jonas in the alternate reality Martha world. I also think they ignored a lot of the really interesting characters in favor of new ones (i.e. we barely saw Noah). Also teen Magnus and especially Franceska were essentially absent.

    I did like how they explained or visualized various things we knew happened (i.e. Katharina was killed by her mom and that's how the necklace got there). I think I spent too much time on Reddit so some things that happened I basically expected and maybe would have been more surprised if I stayed away from forums.
    Spoilers again

    Mikkel never went back in that world, so no Jonas. And yep, like necklace part. It was one of the rare S1 like aspects that were good. Overall, I think they could have done better bringing the true origin narrative into the story sooner, instead of late in the game where it seemed rushed, and an easy way to wrap things up.

If someone dislikes musicals, I can see why they wouldn't like Hamilton. But for me? Yeah Hamilton kicks ass. Great performances, catchy music with some all-time Broadway bangers, clever writing that treats you like an adult and only really opens up after repeat listens, plus its a great modernization of American history that packs a ton of information into its runtime. As a musical lover who also loves revolution-era history, its basically a bullseye for me.
    Musicals should be seen on the stage. Those I donít mind. Movie Musicals I stay away from and never watch them on TV.

    I would prefer you just say you don't like musicals and leave now.

    I do think its funny that most examples that are being given for "I only like a few musicals and they are..." are movie musicals, which are typically the things that I have the most trouble with (animated films notwithstanding). There's a suspension of disbelief factor that has already stripped away most of the "realism" in on-stage productions and animated films that make music much less awkward for me as an audience member. Movie versions of musicals, particularly musicals originally built for the stage, don't have that built in advantage and I have a harder time getting "on board."

    I grew up watching a lot of musicals as my father really enjoys them. Over time I started to develop an affinity for a few here and there. Really like some of the bizarre ones like Rocky Horror Picture Show and Little Shop of Horrors. White Christmas is my favorite Xmas movie.

    To be fair, I didn't hate The Greatest Showman, and I've got some nostalgia for White Christmas and The Sound of Music. This isn't something I feel all that strongly about, and was mostly just trolling. I'm happy to concede that you likely have a better argument here. I just don't like most musicals.

    He didn't say anything about Hamilton except that he doesn't like the creator on Twitter.
    Right. I haven't seen it yet, and I'll probably be forced to watch it soon and grudgingly admit it wasn't terrible.
