I'm about to start Season 3 of Goliath on Amazon Prime (after finishing off Season 1 of Treadstone tonight).

Peaky Blinders
A friend said I’d like it but hadn’t got around to watching it until now.
The most recent season is a hot mess, but the previous ones are freaking awesome.

Oh noes.

Last night I discovered that all seasons of 30 Rock are on Amazon TV.

Started last night by watching the Greenzo epi (middle of season 2), because it's one of the best TV comedy episodes ever. Then I started from the beginning watching Eps. 1 & 2 of Season 1.

I'm going to be stuck in for the foreseeable future (though much of season 6 can be elided over).

Finished Holiday Nailed it and Mrs. Maister started watching some show produced by Dolly Partin called "Heartstrings" which features episodes based on various songs she wrote. I happened to be in the room while it was playing and found it oddly compelling (and, yes, emotionally overwrought as well).

Just started season two of You on Netflix. Penn Badgely is incredible as one creepy dude.

I've been binging on The West Wing. Oddly enough, one of the episodes I watched yesterday involved Iran shooting down a passenger jet. :oops:
That show was groundbreaking for the politi-drama genre, much like 'Hill Street' forever changed the formula for police shows. Aaron Sorkin is one of the most talented writers out there.
Considering the show is now 20 years old, it's held up remarkably well.

Watched the entire Netflix series "Dark" on Saturday. It was really good. The dub is terrible so I watched it in German with subtitles.
I started watching Dark. Pretty good. I don't have a problem with the dubbing but I have the subtitles on anyway, mostly to catch the names. I'm pretty sure Will Arnett is the Enghlish speaking voice of Bernd Doppler (founder of the nuclear plant) so I keep seeing Bojack Horseman in my mind when he talks.

I need something to download to the phone for the bus trip home. I was watching The Tick on Amazon, but I'm done with that now.

Started The Outsider (HBO - based on a Stephan King novel) last night. It's not exactly binge watching since it's still airing, but I had the first three episodes stacked up on the DVR. It was filmed in Georgia, and the main part of the story is takes place in Cherokee County (NW exurban Atlanta). It's a good story and really well made, but I do have a few gripes after watching episodes 1 and 2...

  • No one in the history of the state of Georgia has ever referred to Atlanta as "Cap City". Ever.
  • If you're going from Cherokee to Atlanta, you're not "going out of town" - you're just going down to Atlanta.
  • The only actor even attempting to do something along the lines of a southern accent is Paddy Considine, and he's playing a bouncer at a strip club called The Peach Crease :r: I'm fairly certain there are no strip clubs in Cherokee County (Atlanta, on the other hand, is a different story...).
  • Amtrak does not run from Cherokee to DFW.

To the writers' credit, though, they did correctly work into the script that God favors UGA over Florida in the WLOCP. :cool:

Thanks for the heads up. I hate it when writers totally miss on the regional identity thing. And those sound like epic whiffs. Won't be watching that one.

The novel it's based on is set in a fictionalized version of Oklahoma - I guess translating that to Georgia while trying to stay true to the source material explains mess-ups with the regional details.

I loved Dark but I watched it in German with English subtitles

Watching Ultraviolet here and there in Polish with subtitles - it's a good show but I do intertwine it with 30 Rock episodes - that show is still so damn funny

What the heck does Stephen King know about either OK or GA, isn't he a New England boy? he should stick to what he knows.

He has often set up shop for his books in the last town I worked in so yes it's surprising to me too

I RJed Friday, so caught up on some Netflix.
I finished S2 of You. I really wasn't too impressed with the ending, actually. I don't know what left me "meh", but something did. My midwestern impression of the portrayal of the LA vibe seemed pretty spot-on as Rygor posted.
Finished Inside the Mind of Aaron Hernandez. That dude was a walking disaster looking for a place to happen. Such a shame.
Also finished Cheer. Those athletes are insanely talented (and brave - I wouldn't do that stuff). I understand there is a new sport called "STUNT" that takes the athletic performance of cheerleading into competitive collegiate sports.
And finally started Schitt's Creek. I don't think I would enjoy it if these were hour-long episodes, but the 20+ minute shows keep it pretty breezy. So far, so good.

I kind of think what makes it funny is that you simultaneously sympathize with and hate the various characters, especially Moira and David, while Johnny and Alexis play their foils. So there's always kind of a double plot going on and they frequently intersect.

Hubby and I started The Expanse. While it started in 2015, we weren't really aware of it until last year. He's not as drawn in as I am so far, but we will finish out the 1st season together.

After that, I might be watching it alone.

This Old House has an app on Roku... that will stream past episodes of This Old House and Ask This Old House 24/7... between that and hockey, nothing else matters.

Oh I loved that show!

Almost done watching 30 Rock - it's still as hilarious and irreverent lol
