Recently got a nostalgia vibe and now I'm (re)watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. Fun stuff.

Letterkenny is pretty funny. Just got the Hulu and started streaming it this morning.

Did you make it through the full run? I was thinking about attempting this again, as the wife hasn’t seen it. It’s a shame that was before TV moved to wide screen.

Hollywood on Netflix. Someone here said it was bad, so I almost skipped it, but lo — it’s by Ryan Murphy, who did American Horror Story and OJ Simpson. Three episodes in, it’s much better than expected, OG hard times Hollywood, with occasional surprise flopping man-dong(!).

(OK, that only happened once, but I thought this was on network tv)

No, I don't watch a whole lot of tv, so I'm only about four episodes into the first season. At my rate, it might take a year to go all the way through, if I do so.

It would be fantastic to see an HD version....

Awhile back I started Fauda. I hated it and didn't even finish the first episode. Last night the wife said she was interested so I gave it another chance and surprise we totally got into it, binged 3 eps and looking forward to tonite.
Fauda is phenomenal; and it gets better and better as the seasons progress.

I'm enjoying it. The dialogue is still sharp and it's been long enough since I watched it that I don't remember exactly what happened, so it still feels newish.

I will say that The Master is a shitty villain. I wasn't impressed by him initially, and he's worse on rewatching. I'm looking forward to the Spike and Drusilla episodes.

I love that show so much. It was just a total surprise, given how shitty the production value and latex and everything looks, early on -- and then the writing just gets better and better. Still amazes me how much of a linguistic impact it had, too. So many phrasings that kind of sounded new or weird at the time are now standard television writing.

In other news, we're almost done with Ricky Gervais's After Life on Netflix. It gets really good, IMO. A much deeper emotional take on his standard asshole character, and one that absolutely tears me up as a married person now...

You can get a 65" Samsung 4k TV from Costco for $599.99. Shit that's cheap.

I also started this during the week. I am 3/8 episodes in.

A well off/interior design business owner/2 annoying daughters/4 time divorcee decides to give love another chance. She meets John online. He is a divorced doctor and they hit it off on date 1 after she strikes out with several others.

But wait....her daughters don't like him. I mean...REALLY don't like him. They start to see signs that John may not be right for mom even as the relationship is progressing at a fast pace.

Older/spoiled daughter starts to investigate. She sells one of her Chanel bags(which she keeps in a safe in her bedroom) to pay for a private investigator.

What will she find out? What will her mother think if she tells her? Will John spazz out?

Each episode captures a time in the relationship as well as a look back on previous marriages.

You may say to yourself, self, this sounds like a comedy. Nope, it's actually based on a true story and really isn't bad. The daughters can be over the top, but I will definitely finish this up over the wknd.

3/5 after 3 eps. I don't see this going up more than .5 based on the ending. It definitely can go down.

Dunno how the show will work out, but I heard about the events it was based on, and it's some wild shit. The ending should be interesting.

I never heard the story(maybe I did and don't remember) and didn't realize that it was a true story until I read the description on Netflix.

It's ok so far. We shall see!
