    I finished E-3 today. E 1-2 were weird for sure.
    Never watched OZ. May have to check it out.

    Starting The New Pope now and I have a very strong feeling it will not live up to the first season.
    Cinematography in the Young Pope is off the chain.

    S4 of Goliath premiers September 24 on Prime. Not a big fan of Billy Bob Thorton, but he is outstanding in Goliath. Personally, I think Goliath is on par with the other top rated series like Ozarks, Yellowstone, Bosch, etc.

    Last night I watched an NFL Football game with over 100 combined pass attempts and the game lasted close to four hours. The team that won had a middle aged QB1 and 4 turnovers.

    Then I watched the new Ted Lasso episode.

    I just started Reservation Dogs on Hulu (I think, could be wrong). Real solid show, not spectacular as of yet, but interesting and great characters all around.
    Finished Breaking Bad last night.

    So many quirky things that made you laugh like Walt's windshield getting busted up all the time or how it seemed he always had a black eye. lol

    Writers did a good job of keeping you from hating him given he had turned into a raging murderer who didn't give a F.

    Aaron Paul is an excellent actor.

    Liked how some opening scenes were hints of things to come a few episodes later.

They're not explicit, but they they don't leave much doubt about how Miss Kitty earns her living and that Matt drops by for a visit occasionally. Amanda Blake as Miss Kitty looked garish and over-made-up & rough in later seasons, but in the early episodes, she's still in her late 20's and quite good looking. It's fun to see so many actors in bit or guest roles that you know later went on to be big stars.
    I grew up with Westerns when they were in their heyday. Gunsmoke still holds the record for longest running western. They replaced Chester with Festus because Dennis Weaver wanted to do other roles. James Arness brother was none other than Peter Graves of Mission Impossible and Airplane fame.

    If you like westerns try Maverick with James Garner.

    I say people can fuck off. The show gives me a greater warm and fuzzy than any other show I've watched, and it does it with nearly every episode.

    Plus, I think there is a conflict: the quest for promotion. They've just left it on the back burner to continue building Lasso's impact on everyone involved with the organization. With the ending to the last episode, it felt like a half-season ending of sorts, where they are now set up for the real action... winning some games, and the drama that goes with it.

    (And not that it matters, but the critics get to binge the whole season, and they generally scored it high, meaning a conflict IS coming, and the conclusion is satisfying.)
    I think it has become within our nature to like something and then just as quickly dislike it. This show is still good even if watching it week to week. The first season was excellent, yes, but this season so far has also been quite good. It's fine.

    Finished up Zero Zero Zero on Amazon Prime. Very well done and very good, with an opening for a second season. No one of real note in it either, at least not anyone whose name or face I can recognize other than Gabriel Byrne.

    best boat ive seen made in the series but it seemed like he didnt utilize it to its fullest. I was surprised when he got medically tapped out.

    I loved the ground shelter but initially thought it was going to be something that did her in. Large energy expenditure.

    Any of you grow up watching WWF/WCW? A&E has the a biography series on a lot of your childhood favorites that are pretty good.

    Tinsley was a straight thug when he was in Indy. Pacers should have left him at Club Rio.
    Never cared for Tinsley. Never made the effort to be what he could have been.

Artest is dialed in and playing under control until Tinsley says, "Okay, you can go get your foul now". Stephen Jackson is like WTF? The rest is history.

    Alone wrapped up with three people left on the final episode. After 74 days, one dude just couldn't handle being away from the family. Down to a chick and a guy form Idaho that had bagged a deer earlier. Latest health check cost the chick. She lost too much weight and was sustaining herself on berries. If it wasn't for that, she might have won. $500K to the guy from Idaho.

    Great, great movie. Extremely well cast. I think I've watched it 5 or 6 times when it runs on HBO.

    It's one of those movies that I'll put on when my wife isn't particular about what's on the TV. Then she'll look over at me and go, "are you watching this again."

    Weird how that works.

    Watched the first episode of The Wire so that will keep me busy for the next 2 months.

    Totally agree. S2 doesn't add up to S1, but I finished it. A little bit of a surprise at the end.

I think a lot of agencies were happy to clear previously unsolved cases from their unsolved file and willing to cut corners and not look too closely at the evidence.
    I wasn't sure if it was intentional or not until the Waco DA talked to the head of the Rangers and he told the DA he was going to ruin him.

When they present several murders to the Waco District Attorney, he looks at the evidence and decides not to pursue because things don't add up. Reporters catch on and people realize the sheriff and Rangers are spoon feeding Lucas all the information about each murder and he's going along with it since he knows he's not going free. One set of parents don't believe he killed their daughter and do their own leg work. They find out Lucas wasn't even in Texas when she was killed. Law enforcement ignores the evidence and presses on. Rangers go after Waco DA to keep from looking bad as he's exposing one of the biggest criminal justice hoax in U.S. history. Making of a Murderer is small potatoes compared to this.

    That's about where I quit.

    First couple of seasons were really good.
