"You Can't Turn That Into a House"
Just finished rewatching the first season of Westworld. This is an incredible good series that really makes you think. I understand the maze a little better now.
This week's new discovery is "Vice Principals", a half hour comedy on HBO, with Danny McBride and Walter Goggins. Pretty basic concept: McBride and Goggins (the vice principals) try to get rid of the new principal replacing the old one (Bill Murray in a nice cameo) each thinking they should have gotten the job. If you think you knew Goggins from Justified or The Shield guess again, because he does a 180 here and chews comedic scenery constantly, with what I would say is an inspired character portrayal. You pretty much get what you expect from McBride, who created the show and wrote or co-wrote most of the scripts. It's a lot of inappropriate, HBO-styled fun. It's currently in its second and final season. The breakout star of the show is the new principal, played by Kimberly Hebert Gregory, who is a force of nature and deserves her own show.
Off to a good start.
The Outer Limits
Gave up on Suits 4 episodes into season 4. Watched episode one of the new season of Empire and I just can't do it anymore. I enjoyed the over the top soap opera quality for a while, and found it funny at first, but I'm worn out with it.
Now watching season 2 of This is US and the latest season of The Voice.
24 Season 8 Episode 2
Elementary Season 5 Episode 20
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
Wanted: Dead or Alive (14 episodes to go until the checkers on that 1958-61 CBS Western)
Hello Ladies, on HBO, starring one of the co-creators of The Office Stephen Merchant. Basically Stephen tries to get girls and usually fails. Also features the ubiquitous Nate Torrance and a pre-SNL Kyle Mooney. I can identify with tall geeky dudes.
I just noticed that there's a new season of Zoo on Netflix.
Season 3 episode 1 is just starting here.
Twilight Zone...an episode.
Big Little Lies on HBO.
Two and a Half Men
Fear the Walking Dead. I love this show without reservation.
"Planet of the Apes"
Starting the Sopranos from scratch. Today I watched the first four episodes.
we do too...has much improved.
Dean Martin Roast
great, great show...on BR?
More of Wanted: Dead or Alive (4 episodes away from running the course on that 1958-61 CBS Western)
