I got hooked on the "Grant" miniseries on the History channel last night. It was fantastic.

Agree, Excellent miniseries, Grant is underrated regarding his life accomplishments & their impact on the USA ☝️But at least his face adorns the worker bee ($50 💵) 😉

The Ron Chernow book on Grant is an excellent read.

I'll Be Gone In The Dark. A 6-part HBO docu-series about Michelle McNamara in which they posthumously portray her intention to solve for the East Area Rapist/Golden State Killer who went unchecked between 1974 and 1986, although we will likely never know the true extent of his barbarism. It's very well done so far but it already feels somewhat bittersweet. However hearing her written words spoken (voiced by Amy Ryan) and everything that she went through to investigate this madman is very intriguing.

I have never watched Alone but the current season (which apparently has the largest prize ever) has been excellent.

The novel is fantastic. Agree on the HBO adaptation; it is very well done.

I've heard that "Season 2" will deal with the "If It Bleeds" novella, from the 4 story collection of the same name which was released in April. I don't know that they can pad a 250 page story out to 10 episodes as they did with "The Outsider", but it's an excellent tale.

Was bored yesterday and ended up starting Agent Carter on Disney+.
I proceeded to watch 7 episodes. Not too bad.

The Greatest Events of WWII In Colour on Netflix. Colour me disappointed. There's virtually nothing new presented if your'e at all a WWII history buff and the war in the Pacific is given total short shrift.

YouTube TV is nice but not being able to watch local news when you are out of town is a drawback. You are forced to
Watch local channels and no watching anything you recorded on your dvr on home channels.

Working my way through some shows during all of this...

Halt and Catch Fire--Incredible. In terms of literary quality, it belongs up there with any show you can name.
Superstore--Fun show, worth the watch as a light 30-minute sitcom
Queen Sono-Kinda generic, dumb spy genre piece, but the unique setting and visuals mostly save it.
Giri/Haji-Good, but really, really slow moving, and I generally don't mind slow.

Unfortunately they are all that way. I have Hulu and I bring a Firestick to the lake to watch TV there and they always want me to switch to Minneapolis stations. The only one I was ever able to do it with was PlayStation Vue.

Finally finished The Last Dance (the Jordan thing). Solid. Really solid. Changed my opinion on Scottie's attitude/character, although I have always said that on any other team, he'd be a bigger superstar.

Started Fear City, a 3 ep mini series about the Five Families of NYC. Just one ep tonight, good job. They are concentrating on the business dealings, rather than the violence, of the Families, which is a nice switch from the norm in many of these types of shows.

Netflix streaming.

Finished Fear City...and the last ep was a bit lazy/cookie cutter. Repeated footage within the same episode, the kind of stuff you'd see on regular TV to fill some extra minutes. Overall, a good intro into how the Mob worked and how the FBI worked back then. However, if you knew a few slivers of the gamut of Mob history in the US, it basically was a refresher course.

Halt and Catch Fire is great. The four main characters fit the bill so well. It was lucky to get a second season and somehow got 4 total. Well worth the watch.

I started Superstore during the pandemic. It's a perfectly good comedy that was a good distraction. I couldn't have asked for much more.

I've watched both of these over the last few weeks and I agree with your views on both of them. Both were good ways to pass the time.

Oh, started re-watching Wonder Showzen dvds. Basically, a Mature Audiences Sesame St that used to be on MTV 2 (2 seasons). There is NO way it could air now. And this debuted maybe 15~ years ago or so? I highly recommend. Some bits miss, but the ones that hit? Hoo boy.

I had never watched S1 of The League before and thankfully so far it holds up. “Respect the sidebar” is a great line, the ball-hair joint and the Taco birthday song are great reminders why this show rocked.

I finally started The Devil Next Door and have watched 2 episodes so far. Beyond the actual trial itself (guilty or innocent) the witness testimony has been extremely moving. It’s not necessarily new in that the atrocities have been well known, but hearing them from people so closely removed from the camps is hard to watch but necessary. 75 years on and sometimes it feels like we’ve learned nothing.

The first four seasons hold up for sure. After that, you're rolling the dice. The last season sucked the first time around, and the second to last season is still hit and miss.

The fourth season was their last on Thursday nights on FX, I believe. They ran into issues because the NFL started weekly Thursday night games in 2012, the same time The League was on. Once they moved nights and channels, I lost interest. Mostly because I didn't have FXX at the time

I bought the last three (IIRC) seasons on DVD without seeing them; I didn't have cable, but liked the show enough to buy the discs "blind" (as we say in the biz). Later in the series, it just seemed there was too much Rafi. The character was good in small doses; not as funny as a prominent character. And just looked it up, forgot there was a 7th season. Never watched that one; way too many friends said "don't even bother."

So, S1-4 = awesome. S5 is where the dropoff really starts, S6 (outside of the ep "The Height Supremecist") is the jumping off the cliff hardcore.

Checked out the first ep of Muppets Now on DIS+

Took some getting used to, going from what was classic vaudeville to modernized vaudeville w/technology and parodies of modern reality shows and such. It does show promise.

I had not seen reference to that before, but after looking it up (fwiw) it has excellent ratings across the board.

Just finished Ep5. It's VERY intricate. I am loving it. From what I have heard, it was a series that was quietly released. I don't know why, maybe they took the "word of mouth" marketing approach. Right now, I would highly recommend. I hope the season finishes strong. At this point in the season (I stress that part), I hope there is an S2. However, it depends on how S1 ends.

Finished it tonight. Outstanding.

It COULD continue with the original storyline, it could branch off. They easily have the material to do it. I hope they do. if it ends up being a one-and-done, it did end with good closure on what happened overall. No cliffhangers, really.

Just watched E1 of the Netflix series High Score about the origins of the video gaming industry. I didn't realize that they had upgraded some of the earlier released games to make them more difficult. It would be interesting to now play a before and after. Anyway the series is a bit puffy but for someone my age E1 was quite nostalgic and worth a watch.

That caught my eye the other night. Probably going to watch it this weekend.

Tonight I caught up on the New Muppets (Disney+). It's good escapism and a decent updating of the old show for modern times.

Biohackers. 6-part German series on Netflix about a freshman biomed student. I wasn't super psyched that they gave away her secret so quickly, but after 3 episodes I'm impressed overall and look forward to finishing out the season.

Started re-watching Justified, as my parents took about 3 years to watch the series on the DVDs that I lent them. The character development and the relationships between said characters is really amazing. You notice it the first time through, you REALLY appreciate it the second time through.

Timothy Olyphant & Walton Goggins...their ongoing interactions & battle made that series. Nick Searcy, Noelle Carter & Natalia Zea were also interesting characters. Justified is an underrated series IMHO ☝️

Boy, I have re-watched a bunch of binge-worthy series and this one I had totally forgot about until just now! Thank you for the reminder! The other one that I plan to watch again is Longmire.

And yes, Justified is SO underrated. Walton Goggins is just great in this and in SOA.

Walt Goggins is incredible in anything he does. And I find it hilarious that Timothy Olyphant got his start in "Go" and "The Girl Next Door" movies (he did well in those).

This was an easy watch for me since I was a little bit of a space nerd in my youth. I never really researched much into the o-ring thing after it was pointed to being the issue of the explosion but it was interesting to hear more information on it's problems. It was also the first time I've heard the families talk about the incident as well.

I’m only 1 ep in but I feel like they reversed the usual formula of using lots of action in the first ep and then going into plot development. This season the first episode is mostly story exposition and character development. I’m guessing they know by now we’re gonna watch it no matter what and don’t need to be hooked.

I would agree WRT to season 3 being a step (maybe half a step?) below. The first two seasons were just absolute brilliance though, so it was a high bar to match. I have not watched episode 3 of this season yet. Hopefully tomorrow.

Season 1 was Bilbo somewhere in Northern MN (?)
Season 2 was the butcher of Luverne, Sam from Cheers, and Aliens (?) (PS: nickname possibility for Nelson)
Season 3 was young Obi Wan playing two roles (?)

If so my ranking is 2, 1, 3, 4 (so far).

Watched E1 of The Comedy Store from Showtime. What a tremendous start and I hope they can continue the huge intrigue of this episode. So many great memories of watching comics getting their start with Johnny and then blowing up. I remember hearing about Freddy Prinze dying but I was just a kid so I had no understanding of the complexities of it all.

I guess I'll be the contrarian to say I really haven't enjoyed this season of Fargo as much as I have previous seasons, though I'm having a tough time putting my finger on why that is.
So far I agree, but it's early. I also thought Season 3 was a notch below the first 2.
I would agree WRT to season 3 being a step (maybe half a step?) below. The first two seasons were just absolute brilliance though, so it was a high bar to match. I have not watched episode 3 of this season yet. Hopefully tomorrow.
Season 1 was Bilbo somewhere in Northern MN (?)
Season 2 was the butcher of Luverne, Sam from Cheers, and Aliens (?) (PS: nickname possibility for Nelson)
Season 3 was young Obi Wan playing two roles (?)

If so my ranking is 2, 1, 3, 4 (so far).
Spot on!

GLOW cancelled (Netflix show about the pro women's wrestling league back in the 80s). :( They were in the middle of filming the final season.

On a bright note, the ending of the last aired season of it did provide a closure, no cliffhangers, really.

When you tell somebody somethin', it depends on what part of the country you're standin' in... as to just how dumb you are.
