started watching "search party," which makes me nostalgic for the brief time post-undergrad i lived in brooklyn and had no idea what the fuck i was going to do with my life.
Post-undergrad and pre-grad was the best. My friends still hadn’t moved all over the country for work, but we had more money than when in college.

It’s a fun show. Season 4 is the worst and Season 5 is basically a drug trip, but in a good way.

Yeah I wouldn’t put it into “must watch” territory, but it’s a half hour show, and I’m always looking for decent half hour shows.

Speaking of which- I'm watching We Are Lady Parts. Only 6 half hour episodes; first is a little shaky, like a lot of first episodes are, but it settled in nicely after that.

It’s a dark comedy. When it’s good it’s really good, when it’s bad, it’s pretty shitty. The main character is extremely unlikable, but that’s more a credit to the writing and actor. The series finale is somewhat of a letdown in the last scene, but not a huge deal.

It’s very binge-able and the insanity of Season 5 cannot be put into words.

Another good show, so far, is Peacemaker. Only 3 episodes are out and it’ll be polarizing. If you like James Gunn and liked John Cena in Suicide Squad it’s great.

The intro is probably a good barometer if you’ll like it. It’s this level of ridiculous the whole show

I enjoyed episode 1 of Peacemaker, I haven't watched any more than that.... but likely will.

Just started the other night and am thoroughly enjoying it:

Pokes fun at the true crime TV/podcast craze (Serial etc) ...

A little funny, a little dark. Good performances.

I enjoyed The Expanse final season and finale. Also enjoyed Mandalorian more than I thought I would. I think Mando is the first time I've actually cared about the Star Wars universe outside of a videogame.

I can only assume Expanse is going to be continued at some point somewhere, somehow after the Laconia Romans/Goths setup.

Looking forward to the upcoming videogame based on Camina Drummer too.

edit: Agree with above about Marco. I think he peaked at Season 5.

Stick with Only Murders in the Building, there’s a mid-season dip, but it ends strong.

American Vandal (netflix) is also a hilarious poke at the true crime podcast craze if you haven't seen it yet.

The Girl From Oslo on Netflix Norwegian & Israeli coproduction..hostage exchange using the girl, with a couple of interesting twists and turns however feel that a couple of character moves have been telegraphed too early..so far ok.

That has been in my queue. I need to give it a chance one day.

I don't have any problem with the meandering middle section either. The series is about the characters far more than the investigation anyway. I've never really liked Steve Martin or Martin Short (or cared about Selena Gomez) before, but all three leads, as well as the supporting case of eccentrics and weirdoes, are excellent. And Sting is hilarious. I did not think they'd really have him in the show when he was first mentioned...

I really wanted to love Only Murders in the Building. I kept thinking 'all that talent and this is what they came up with?' Such a great concept, though. Agree the Sting parts were a lot of fun.

Started Catch 22 which is on Hulu last night. Only watched one episode, but was pretty damn impressed. Great cinematography and effects, too.
