The show has an uneven gait, it started off hot, then got a little slow, then picked up again, slowed and then sped up again

Everyone knows that 7 of 9 is in the series so clearly the Borg have to be included. Besides the clip doesn't provide any context so you are ok to view it

Everyone hated 1 episode short stories. That is what almost prematurely killed Enterprise, Deep Space 9 and Voyager. Discovery and Picard have not made that mistake
I'll disagree on the 1 episode stories, and agree with everything else. Fantastic ending to the season.
So, uh, really? Picard is now an Android? I'm both ecstatic and upset at the same time. Like, no one could have told him before hand so that he could give his own blessing? They had to throw everything together in short time and yet they had this kick ass program with a dream-like meeting with Data to transfer Picard to his new host? And don't get me started on what exactly this means to the way Picard now thinks/acts. We still know that Androids, although evolving, aren't perfect.

The show has a nice mix of Borg and former stars. Riker is too smiley these days. And how exactly was he able to arrange for an entire fleet of kick ass ships when Picard couldn't get one? I know, I know the Romulan incident and Mars.

For some reason, I'm also kinda sad that Hugh didn't make it. And the hot Romulan chick. That fight with her and 7.... 😍

Two wild and crazy best friends/roommates from Dublin spend their days going to school and working at a financial firm. At night, they hit up bars, dance at clubs and curse at everyone who annoys them.

When one friend realizes that her life isn't going anywhere, she decides to apply for a semester abroad in Vancouver. The other friend gets fired from her finance job and is unsure what to do with her life.

This 2 season series takes you from their lives in Dublin, art school in Vancouver and the trappings of Dublin if you have no guidance.

It's a straight comedy....with a bit of seriousness thrown in. Each ep is app 20 minutes.

I liked this. Nothing complicated. An easy watch. I sat back yesterday and watched both seasons in one sitting.

3/5.

Another show that should've been a miniseries. I watched the first episode of season 3 and instantly forgot what happened. Can't say I care.

Had no interest in watching Tiger King but a boozy video chat with a friend changed that. I watched 3 episodes in a row tonight and look forward to wrapping it up in the next day or two.

Also watching ZeroZeroZero on Amazon Prime. Don't give a shit about the characters but it's entertaining - it'd be nice if I'd stop getting sound delays on AP.

Westworld season 2 was so complicated for no apparent reason, I think I had enough.
The only reason I might change my mind is because I like Bernard's outfits.

What the fuck is up with that show. Is it incoherent by design? The first ep s3 made perfect sense then ...............

S1 made sense and was great. S2 was a jumbled mess and no one knew wtf was happening. S3 isn't a complete jumbled mess like S2 but not as good as S1.

Haven't found anything engaging to binge on so started watching Dick Cavett and Tom Snyder Interviews. Interesting to hear public opinion and thoughts from the 70's to the 90's.
Alfred Hitchcock interviewed by both, very transparent man.
Three different Sterling Hayden interviews over a few years with Snyder are a mini series unto themselves.
Tons of musicians of that era frequented those shows.
Hard to find find full length videos on you tube; most interviews have been dissected into brief fragments.

Powering through Stranger Things.

Season 1 is fun. Horror usually isn't my cup of tea, but this is like horror-lite. It's a fun concept, well executed, and the story arc is tight. 3.5/5

Season 2 starts to get a little too campy. The subplots especially are a little ridiculous, especially the one set in Pittsburgh, and there's an excessive reliance on tropes and nick-of-time heroics. Seems like they didn't really know where to go with it other than "season 1, but bigger!" Kinda feels like Back to the Future Part 2. Still fun, expands the universe in interesting ways, but some of the magic of the original was lost. 2.5/5

Hopefully season 3 is better than Back to the Future Part 3. I'll update on S3 once I finish it.

I think S2 gets a bad rap from simply being different from S1 (how could it not be? The big mystery is revealed) and getting a lot of internet backlash, but I think it really wasn't so bad. It was complicated in a way that turns off casual viewers but which is in keeping with the general theme (S1 was equally complicated, but had more surface-level appeal for people who just want to ignore it).

That said, after an almost 2 year gap, that causes problems. Like completely not remembering what happened with Maeve...

I've been enjoying S3 so far, but they've made some odd decisions. Like it seemed that they went overboard on explaining the Rico app (which seemed pretty clear that it was crime-uber on first glance) but left forgotten details from prior seasons unexplained.

HOLY SHIT — IT’S COBRA KAI!

So this is probably old news, but holy shit! I’ve tried jumping jacks, calling friends, meditation apps and other nonsense, and this was the only thing that took my blood pressure back down to where it should be. Twenty-five bucks for the first two seasons on Amazon, and worth every penny.

Thirty-five years after the All Valley tournament, we revisit a fifty-ish Johnny and Larusso, one the owner of a successful car dealership, the other a pretty much worse-off version of Al Bundy. Their fates are intertwined once again when Johnny decides to reopen the infamous Cobra Kai dojo. I love shows like this. Like Changing Lanes or House of Sand and Fog, there really isn’t a bad guy or antagonist — just two well-developed characters at odds with one another. I know that in a couple of days, I’m going to be jonesing for season three.
Have not watched Cobra Kai yet, but this video was made years before and is a pretty decent take on the original movie:

I'm really enjoying Tiger King on Netflix.

The docuseries follows different wild cat breeders, all of whom are wealthy and have built their own cults of workers who get paid very little or nothing in exchange for the seductive lifestyle of being around big cats all the time. Each of them have very unique talents and very deep character flaws. It's like a modern day Shakespearean play and it's full of very flamboyant white trash aesthetics. I want to be Joe Exotic for Halloween.



Carole Baskin totally did it! She reminds me so much of my psychopath sister it's uncanny. Very creepy.

Season 1 was fascinating: the documentary was going to be about Sunderland trying to make it back up into the Premier league after being relegated. Instead, Sunderland had to deal with the prospect of being relegated to an even lower division. Season two out now.

I no longer watch football (soccer) but this is a great series apparently.

I've been watching Ozark. Same as the previous seasons, still good. Some great cinematography and color palette as well.
