    Scooby did you not pick up what I was suggesting about this list?

    -Prometheus
    -Star Trek 1 and 2
    -Cowboys and Aliens
    -Lost

    Hint: Awesome is not an adjective I would use

    I'm not worried. I get it. I'm not worried. Interviews I've listened to with him are all positive.

    Prometheus was great. Lost was good for the first several seasons. Star Trek 1 was outstanding. 2 is love it or leave it.

    About 2/3 through the second season. Like "Sons Of Anarchy," there are a LOT of webs in place at this point. However, UNlike SOA, Mayans writers learned things, and have tightened up stuff, so it's not so haywire/off the rails. So far, everything actually DOES have a reasonable reason for taking place. It's not just "well, went rogue, stuff happened." That being said, if they keep the tightness up, I would expect 4 seasons, MAYYYYYYYYYYYYBE 5 if they come up with something to add to the current stuff. While there are a lot of moving parts, it's more accelerated than SOA.

    Really loving it so far.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Sutter? He said he was leaving after this season, if a 3rd season is ordered. That's the last I heard anything. Dunno about the other creator. But, yes, Sutter is kind of a nutcase.

    Finally caught Chernobyl on the plane ride over a couple nights ago. It was as brutal as I expected.

    I think he's referring to the content itself being brutal to watch; how the people suffered, etc.

    Yeah that was what I read. The show was brilliant but a very difficult watch.

    I'm absolutely loving Evil on CBS. This isn't a typical CBS show, and despite it being a "police procedural of the week," type show, it is fresh and exciting to watch. Feels like a throwback to when X-Files came out, just without the science fiction. Katja Herbers and Mike Colter perfectly play off each other.

    I agree. It's my favorite new network show of the year.

    I don't watch much actual tv shows, I don't know.

    Many of them also worked as pastry chefs.

    Re: TV: A Succession of Watchmen in The Good Place

    Just finished Yellowstone Season 2. Honestly I am not sure if I will move onto Season 3, and part of the feeling is why I'm not sure I'll continue with Peaky Blinders even though there is so much about both shows I really appreciate. I binge watched Peaky since I had some free time and with only 6 EPs per season I probably didn't have time to sit and reflect. Some of this is why I stopped watching Ray Donovan - which is there are virtually no to very, very few redeeming characters. I don't need duckies and bunnies (to coin a local a radio show) but outside of Monica and Tate is there anyone to root for? Sure Kayce has his moments as does Rip, and for some of the lesser characters Ryan and Jimmy. Others that had it are gone. Some of the stories have also been a bit too, "really?" as well.

    What's kept me on is the stunning scenery that makes me long for home (no MN does not have mountains), some interesting character developments and strong acting performances. It doesn't hurt that the actress that plays Monica might be the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. But still. I will likely cave and give S3 a chance, but they have a lot to work with and I hope they can expand on the foundation or I'll sour on it quickly.
