Doom Patrol – Brendan Fraser in a robot body cussing a lot is the hero I didn’t know I needed.

Also has Timothy Dalton & Alan Tudyk.

Wow… clean sweep at the Emmys last night for Schitt’s Creek. Just finished watching the final season last week.

Great show. Waiting for the last season on NetFlix. Other good ones are The Kominsky Method, Ozark, Grace and Frankie, and Better Call Saul.

The Fosters

Teenager Callie Jacob is placed in a foster home with a lesbian couple and their blend of biological, adoptive, and foster children.

A very different show, most likely aimed at slightly younger folks. Show is set in San Diego.

I saw the first 3 episodes of Schitt’s Creek and while it was funny, something about it wasn’t clicking for me. Does it get considerably better over time?

The Kominsky Method is really unusual. Better Call Saul is fantastic—liked it more than “Breaking Bad.” “Mindhunter” is an excellent series that takes time to appreciate (don’t judge by first few episodes) and a 3rd season is on the way.

“Hannibal” is another terrific series, if you can put up with the highly graphic gore. Previously I had only “Bond villain” in my mind with Mads Mikkelsen (who plays Hannibal Lecter), but wow—his acting chops really shine in this one. The narrative starts before “Silence of the Lambs”, when Dr. Lecter was a psychology consultant for the FBI. It doesn’t feature Agent Starling, but uses a different protagonist (Will Graham, a man with an “extra sense” for figuring out crimes). Laurence Fishburne is excellent as Jack Crawford. It ends after 3 seasons. There was talk of renewing it, somehow “re-framing the ending” of season 3, but I have a feeling it won’t happen.

I thought so. I thought it was just OK the first few episodes – not sure where it was going. It took me about half of the first season before I started getting engaged, and by the end of first season I was hooked.

Schitt’s Creek reminds me of Green Acres without the pig.

Just finished watching Season 1 of The Newsroom. It’s funny seeing them use Blackberries.

Yellowstone Season 2. Recommended.  Not easy to find in the UK.

 

We are also trying to watch Sucession.  I have no idea how this won 9 Emmy awards.   Best described by a line in the script - "A s***t show at the f***k factory"

Over the last few weeks, I’ve seen a few episodes of the HBO documentary “The Vow,” which is about the ponzy scheme/cult NXIVM, developed around Keith Raniere a few years ago. The episodes can seem a bit stretched out and repetitive, but I think the creators were trying to have the first episodes show us why the group, and its many sub-groups claiming to be for various kinds of self-improvement and community action, were appealing to so many intelligent, conscientious people.

The middle episodes appear to be methodically showing how difficult it was for various members to break from the group and take the risk of publicly speaking out against the bad behavior and crimes they gradually realized were going on and directed by the leader, Mr. Raniere. That partially works, because, among other things, the members were required to give “collateral” in the form of embarrassing statements and background information about themselves to the leaders in order to join various sub-groups.

However, some viewers are apparently finding the facts presented in the series of episodes to be too repetitive to retain their interest. Other viewers are critical of the people who joined and later decided to break with the organization and publicly denounce it – these viewers believe the gullibility of these witnesses, and their participation at least to some extent in carrying out the goals of the organization and Mr. Raniere, leave them culpable of the harm done, and make it difficult to sympathize with their own suffering due to their membership in the organization and their varying degrees of friendship with Mr. Raniere.

In any event, the series is an interesting look at mind control and the way very intelligent people with self-esteem issues can be as susceptible to deception as others, and just as capable of joining others in acting badly, while believing they are working to achieve idealistic goals and self-improvement.

Brother vs. Brother on HGTV

there were two ~100 year old houses in San Francisco
listed for ~$2.5 MILLION each and the two brothers
were spending $1 MILLION to renovate both houses
in a competition to see which would appraise higher.

i may not have exact information since it was hard
to hear over the machines at PT, regardless, i am
so glad i do not pay for this type of TV at home.

also, i am glad we do not live anywhere near SF.
we have visited several times, and it is nice, but
not THAT nice.

I saw the season premiere of South Park.

It was mostly about COVID-19.

The episode was pretty uneven, and you have to be a fan of South Park's brand of immature humor to enjoy it.

I thought it was very entertaining in some parts, and I want to see more sitcoms do COVID-19 based comedy.

Alaska Off-Road Warriors on the History (?) Channel.

changed up my Physical Therapy routine and times.
coming along great, and the machines face the wall monitor.

essentially, it looked like a car race without roads.
back when we had cable, it seemed that THC
had much more history in their show selections.
my opinion: this show should be “history”.

NFL games at my mother’s nursing home.
they have a nice set-up with satellite Red Zone.

anyway, the games keep switching depending upon
which one is more likely to provide more action.

have to give them this: it was interesting.
however, i would never Pay to watch it.

as always, Mom fell asleep.

+1 recommend the Newsroom. I kept skipping it when it actually aired thinking it was some regular news program until I actually caught an episode in season 3 or something (which was the last season), so I had to backtrack.

I tell all my friends about it, they always say “hmm I dunno I hate news..”, then watch 1 or two episodes and get hooked..

I loved Dexter, except for the last two seasons which weren't so great.

I'd like to see another show about a serial killer that primarily kills other serial killers.

I don't care if it's obviously a Dexter clone as long as the show is fairly good.

That's how great I think the show is:

I will gladly take an imitation.

Or, how about Dexter: Pacific Northwest?

Showtime is bringing back Dexter!

The show ended in 2013, but is scheduled to return in Fall of 2021.

I hope it's not crappy like the last two seasons, but I'll watch it either way.

Just watched “Challenger – The Final Flight” mini series on Netflix. Pretty good watch.

I hope the current rush to develop COVID-19 vaccine to appease current administration does not result in a similar disaster.

The Queen’s Gambit

Anyone seen this?

Watching people play chess doesn’t sound particularly exciting, but the reviews are good…

Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit is quietly one of the best TV shows of 2020

Also, started Watching Season 2 of Mandalorian.
