Comedy Central had a Reno 911 marathon on New Year's Eve and my wife recorded all of the episodes. We've been watching two or three episodes of that a night for the past week or so. I forgot how much I loved that show and how funny all of the actors are. (FWIW, I never cared for The State)

Ditto, aside from an isolated sketch or two, but a lot of the stuff those guys have put out since then has been great.
Other than Reno 911, my favorite show from State alums was probably the short-lived Stella on Comedy Central with Michael Ian Black, David Wain, and Michael Showalter. Childrens Hospital (which somehow lasted for like 8 years on Adult Swim?) was another great one. I think David Wain was one of the creators.

Going down the Wikipedia and IMDB rabbit hole of careers from people on The State the best tidbit I discovered was that Kerry Kenney-Silver's dad was the voice of both Count Chocula and Lion-O.

We were all excited for the return of The Orville but that second episode was not child appropriate! :oops:

Otherwise just been watching Community lately because I didn't finish the series previously and with the move, our brains haven't been able to handle anything more serious and longer than 30 minutes lately. :LOL:

The Orville seems to have gone a little more serious than the 1st season. I thought last year had more laughs.

Oh definitely not! I still enjoyed the episode though. The third one was incredibly dark though.

Last year definitely had more laughs, but the show couldn't figure out what it wanted to be. A serious Star Trek type show, or a wacky zany spoof? It's found the right footing now though. All three episodes have been significantly more character driven and much smaller in scope. Some funny bits still exist, but the tone is drastically different. IMO I enjoy it much more now. It really feels like a solid Star Trek successor.

In honor of the 20th anniversary, I am re-watching the Sopranos.
I've never watched that show, at least all the way through. I've had HBO streaming for years, and really only used it for "Game of Thrones". I am definitely wasting that subscription. I'll start that show next after I finish the available "The Good Place" episodes.

^ I've rewatched the Sopranos a couple of times and it holds up really well. There were always a few episodes and storylines I didn't care about but there were plenty of phenomenal episodes and characters.

I agree. The using payphones makes it see a little bit like a period piece but in a fun way. I didnt remember how bad of an actress Meadow was... she is painful in the first two seasons.

I had stopped watching the Orville. Last season had a lot of humor to it as well as serious moment. After reading y'alls comments, I'm going to have starting watching it again.

Started watching Lucifer last week. I understand the show ran on Fox for a few seasons and now Netflix has picked up the production.

It started off really strong, but ultimately morphed into a standard police procedural with some random fantasy type things thrown in. I stopped watching after the second season had one of those odd mid-season breaks.

The premise seems interesting and entertaining, but I'm currently at episode 5 of the first season and wondered if in fact that was the trajectory it would take. It's already showing early indications a run of the mill procedural is where they're headed.

Chef's Table on Netflix. I've watched almost all episodes from Seasons 1-4. The standouts for me so far are Magnus Nilsson, Dan Barber, Frances Mallman, and Virgilio Martinez.

I started that series last week!

Anyone else watching Tidying Up? I swear, the people in that show must not have had to move for years - how else do you have so much stuff pile up? Every time we move (and we're looking at our 3rd in 4 years), we purge like crazy.

I want to watch it but I'm afraid that I'll want to purge not just my stuff but stuff from everyone in the household and then they'll get annoyed with me. :p
