Have been slowly getting through THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL.  The first 5 episodes are good, but haven't compelled me to binge it or anything.

Watched 1 episode of THE CROWN, the very first one, and that'll be a "watch as C-Fan wants to" show for me, I am not hugely into the English royal mythos.

Watched 1 episode of DARK, I could see returning to that when I'm in the mood... but I better not wait too long or I will forget what happened in Episode 1.

Watched half an episode of MINDHUNTER, same as DARK... I could see enjoying it, but I wouldn't say it grabbed me even with the opening scene of the guy blowing his head off.

Watched an episode of ROTTEN, that was really interesting, but being in the food industry it would be moreso for me.  I will get back to that soon.  Food doc series, first one was about the Honey industry.  And why the bees are disappearing, and other dirty tricks that happen therein.  Pretty interesting stuff.

Watched 2 1/2 episodes of WORMWOOD, and it was just moving. so. slow.  I abandoned it.

Just added DIRTY MONEY, a new docu-series from the likes of Alex Gibney (GOING CLEAR)... basically an anti-capitalist series, sounds up my alley.  One of the episodes promises to be a long anti-Trump screed... I am really beyond my Trump-limit, so maybe I'll skip that one, who knows.  I already hate him, that's not going to help me.

I made it through Mrs. Maisel.  It was okay, I don't know if I will watch season 2.  The issue I had with it was it whether it was supposed to be fun or more heavy.

If it is supposed to be more heavy, it's bad because there's just too many things that are not addressed.  For all the hardships, she's still unrealistically good/popular and has very few real problems.  A lot of things that would be dark are just glossed over.

If it's supposed to be more funny and we're not supposed to worry about the details, then it needs to have a lot more laughs and zaniness.

I also made it through Mindhunter.  It was good, just not that interesting to me I guess.  I don't know if I would have made it through if it hadn't been for one weekend where all I had was Netflix.  Despite all the murder stuff which you would think would be exciting, it actually kind of moves at a slow pace.  But the acting and story telling are good.  It kind of ended all weird which reduced my interest in the next season.  So I dunno.

I guess it's 50/50 on both of those as to whether I watch season 2.

"The Crown" is magnificent TV. Very sumptuous, not a penny/cent wasted in any shot.

"There's Johnny" is staying on my Hulu list for now. Episodes 1 & 2 were better than I imagined.

I got through all of DIRTY MONEY except the Trump episode, because I don't need to watch a 90 minute show to tell me what I already know about him.  It was pretty good all around, especially the one about Valeant Pharmaceuticals.  That was a great one about both the rising cost of medicine and the stock market.  The VW one and the one about the Instant Cash guy were also excellent.

I basically haven't gone back to any of the ones I talked about 2 months ago.

But I did finish WILD WILD COUNTRY last night, a 6 part docu-series about the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and his commune in Oregon in the early 80's.  It wasn't great, but the story is outstanding.  I was under 10 while all this went on, so I was oblivious.  It is a fascinating story, even if the filmmakers don't dig too deep during the talking head interviews.  They let everyone speak for themselves, and that ends a bit unsatisfactorily... but overall this is well worth your 6 1/2 hours.

If that doesn't get you, how about the worst deliberate mass poisoning in American history and an armed standoff that would've made Waco look like small potatoes (that almost happened, but didn't, or you would've heard about it).

FLINT TOWN - Not the best docuseries I've ever seen, but certainly a series with a lot of interesting events and points of view that lets a lot of different sides have their say.  Ultimately, it's a show about the cops in Flint, a town with problems that you've probably heard about.  It does well to show the events of the past couple of years through some different lenses on the police force, and even the public.  It was not super-compelling but it was very interesting and definitely watchable.  And definitely some profound moments in there.

THE AMERICANS final season starts Wednesday.
LEGION Season 2 starts next Tuesday.
Fired up for both of these.  LEGION Season 1 was weird, wild, and surprisingly wonderful.  Not even so much about superheroes as a guy with superpowers who is absolutely f'ing untethered from reality.

THE TERROR, an AMC series about something to do with a ship in the freezing cold north is getting amazing reviews and started last night with 2 episodes out of 10.  I think this is a 1 season miniseries.  Have it set up to DVR.

FX has TRUST, the miniseries about J. Paul Getty and the kidnapping (that was featured in the recent movie ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD) starring Donald Sutherland and helmed by Danny Boyle firing up here shortly... Plan to DVR that and see what it's like.  I'm not 100% sold on watching it just yet but the promos seem promising.

ATLANTA Season 2 started a few weeks ago, and I'm saving those up for a bit.  Season 1 was so good... am wondering how this season digresses from that.

BARRY, the new HBO Series starring Bill Hader as a hitman who falls in love with acting started Sunday night... may let a few episodes accumulate before attacking it on HBO Now.

SILICON VALLEY Season 5 opener was Sunday night... it was good, but not great.  The series has followed that arc.  I love the ensemble so much, that I can forgive some story lags.  I think they are getting to where they need to be with the company storyline, while still remaining funny.  Zach Woods' Jared is one of the funniest characters on TV right now.

And the reboot of ROSEANNE is tonight.  I really liked Roseanne in its first iteration up until the last couple of seasons when I lost interest and totally missed on that crazy ending it supposedly had.  I could see catching up on this during the summer, but it is far from must-see for me at this point.

I'm surprised to actually be enjoying this for something that seems to be a cross between Downtown Abbey and The Thing, however it needs to start getting to the creepy stuff quicker than the first two episodes let on.

I read about the Roseanne reboot, and am really intrigued (apparently addressing head-on the Trump-era stuff. Apparently the season premier on Monday was a ratings buster, so much so that ABC will re-broadcast it on Sunday at 7. I plan on watching.

I never liked the original Roseanne, even though I appreciated the the writing, and it had some great actors and actresses.

I kinda want to root for Roseanne Barr because she’s sort of bold, and for a sitcom the characters are not so one-dimensional and they tackle issues in a nuanced way.

On the other hand, Barr is a complete nut and does some many shitty things and then becomes a drama queen about it that I cannot wish her success.  Probably success would be the worst thing for her own personal life anyway.

This show doesn't scratch either itch for us. I don't think there is any chemistry between the leads on this show, AT ALL. And Alan Cumming just seems to have been neutered for network TV. The tan face, the dyed hair. Ugh. LET ALAN BE ALAN! We have been watching it because it comes on after 60 MINUTES and we enjoy some old folks TV on our Sunday evenings. But, I don't think we'll keep watching this one. Bump up MADAM SECRETARY to 8PM, CBS!

REQUIEM on Netflix was a shortish good horror mystery.  Takes place largely in Wales.  It is pretty far over the top melodrama, but it is British so that helps.  It's about as subtle as a brick to the face, but much more enjoyable.

Watched 1 episode of DARK, I could see returning to that when I'm in the mood... but I better not wait too long or I will forget what happened in Episode 1.

Finished this.  I would say it was good, but wouldn't recommend watching it any other way than binging... because there are way too many characters and subplots to keep straight to leave too much space in between the viewing.  I had several weeks between episodes 3 and 4, and I was still barely understanding who everyone was and what they were doing right through the end.

It also doesn't help that it has a bit of a time-twisting structure and the plot is... high concept probably doesn't do it justice.  The ending wasn't very satisfying, but it is German so that was almost to be expected.

So, WESTWORLD.  Should I bother?  I watched maybe 3 or 4 episodes of season 1.  I don't know, didn't grab me.  Maybe I should give it a few seasons before getting involved?

If you don't like it after the first 3-4 episodes, I'm not sure if you'll like it anymore as you continue watching.

I started THE CROSSING last night. I'm a sucker for Steve Zahn and for shows that seem LOST-esque or similar to THE 4400.
There's some good stuff there to be explored and some cheesy fluff that I don't need. Since it's network TV, I'm going to guess they will stick with the cheesy stuff and ignore the interesting stuff. But, time will tell.

This is how I feel about Designated Survivor.  It had the promise of being interesting, kinda of a West Wing sort of thing, and it has devolved into every stupid predicament the writers could possibly dream of within the confines of the situation.  Really bad.  Of course now Michael J. Fox is on, and we can't reject MJF.  She more than I, of course.

We have yet to watch any of the crossing, but we are also big Steve Zahn fans.  How could you not like Lenny?

Yes. The villian is great. Her eyes are amazing.
I think Sebastian called her something but I would guess that was just the alias that she gave to the people in the apartment building. Like Jenny or something.

So let's circle back to this:

THE AMERICANS... so good all the way through.  Ended in a completely appropriate way, and very powerfully.

LEGION Season 2... was terrible.  Just an utter disappointment.  I powered through the last 4 episodes even though I didn't want to and was not rewarded.

THE TERROR... magnificent.

TRUST... didn't watch it, probably won't.

ATLANTA... haven't watched it yet, am planning on it here shortly.

BARRY... got through 2 eps, and am definitely going to finish it, but am waiting on Andrea to have a bit of time where we can watch together.

SILICON VALLEY Season 5: Was fine.  Zach Woods is the main reason to watch.

Reboot of ROSEANNE... the core characters were good enough, but the extra people they tried to bring in just weren't doing it for me.  Got through like 3 episodes and basically gave up, they were forcing the social commentary too much.

Also, the series finale of THE MIDDLE was really really good.  Sad it's gone, but it had a good long run.


What's coming up for me:

Started watching THE STAIRCASE on Netflix.  Fell asleep during 2 of the first 3 parts.  I think I was just legitimately sleepy, but this is a True Crime show that is letting things speak for themselves instead of trying to speed things along at a zippy pace.  I will probably stick with it.

GLOW just came back with Season 2.  I liked the ending of Season 1 very much.  Looking forward to Season 2.

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT Season 5... I can see myself seeing this at some point... I abandoned Season 4 about halfway through.

BROCKMIRE Season 2... sitcom on IFC about a drunkard baseball announcer.  First few episodes I saw last year... I need to catch up and get on board, as it's really good.

FOREVER on Amazon Prime.  It's not the best thing I've ever seen, but it's got Maya Rudolph and Catherine Keener and a tiny bit of Julia Ormond and it's a pretty good show.  They overcome Fred Armisen just fine, although he tries to be a boring passive-aggressive idiot but can't really pull it off because he's not much of an actor.  I don't want to say what it's about really, because that kind of ruins it.  I just saw it was a new show with Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen and I was in because I figured it would cater to my sensibility.  I was mostly right.

If you don't like Maya Rudolph and Catherine Keener, then I really don't want to know you because they are god damn delightful.  Also, Episode 6.  Just watch it.  It's less than 4 hours and it's worth it.

BOJACK HORSEMAN Season 5: Yup, it's still good.  Maybe not as emotionally devastating as Season 4 (although one episode certainly is), but then again I'm only through episode 7.  Plus, David Sedaris guest stars in one episode, and if you can pick him out, you are a better person than I.

Plus, who doesn't like a show that has a line like: "Once again, my life has been worsened by a brush with musical theater!"

Also on my list coming up, aside from finishing off the brilliant 4th season of BETTER CALL SAUL, copied straight from my phone, because my memory sucks:

Finishing up BARRY from HBO, we're about halfway through the season on that... was really glad to see Henry Winkler win Best Supporting Actor for that, he is great.

SHARP OBJECTS
NORM MACDONALD HAS A SHOW (maybe?)
MANIAC
DARK TOURIST
LAST CHANCE U
THE DEUCE (never watched Season 1, it's time to catch up)
ATLANTA season 2
BASKETS (stopped around midway through Season 2)
THE STAIRCASE (got about halfway through this also, wasn't very compelling, but I still want to see how it ends)

I can say that approximately zero new network fall shows look good to me.  Though I will still make an effort to watch several ABC comedies like that one about the 80's, that one about the handicapped kid, that one about the Asians, and that one about the "fat" wife.  Although apparently we've moved a couple of these to Friday, so I guess I won't be watching those.

MURPHY BROWN returns.  I remember begging my mom to stay up past my 9 PM bedtime on Monday nights to watch this when I was in middle school.  I realize in retrospect that this show was terrible.  I also know I probably can't bear to watch a new sitcom about today's political climate.  PASS.

THE GOOD PLACE, definitely looking forward to Season 3, interesting how they have rebooted each season.

American Vandal, Season 2: extremely clever and creative (and also what c-lando said above), but it should also be pointed out that the the final episode was NOT what I was expecting. I won't spoil anything, but that final episode was something else.


Jack Ryan: I f-ing loved it. Fantastic.

For a show that's reaching "best series ever" levels of critical acclaim it feels like it has a tenth of the viewership of Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad.

I didn't think Season 4 was that devastating compared to Seasons 2 and 3, but my sister disagrees.  I suppose maybe because the first few seasons were more about BoJack's personal angst which a middle-aged male could more relate to, whereas last season tackled broader societal topics, including a brutal take on historical gender views.

The critics are loving Season 5 so I guess I'm in the minority but for me the first flaws started to show.  It's not that any of the individual episodes are bad, just that it's becoming a little over-familiar and sloggy.  Just for little bits at a time.  If this were Season 2, it'd still be brilliant but at Season 5 I've just seen it before, and I already kind of know how things will go based on the story arc they use every season.

OTOH, I also felt like this was the funniest season for me.  I don't know if it's ACTUALLY funnier.  I think maybe because I was a little less emotionally involved in the main BoJack arc, and therefore paid more attention to all the one-liners and sight gags.

I'm with you. Through episode 7 there have been 4 gimmick/ bottle episodes.  Trying maybe a bit too hard.

But I've definitely laughed more this year than last.

I want to like I Feel Bad, but it suffers from the same problems that Alex Inc. did.  Every character is a caricature, these do not seem like real people.  Their interactions are not believable.  It's just not relatable at all.

We are trying to watch Manifest. Have dug it okay so far. Gotta have something weird to watch.

I watched the pilot and thought it was OK. Forgot to set a Season Pass and totally forgot it was a show.

I realized this week we skipped at least one week because we hadn’t set up the one pass. Said oh well and moved on.

The one weird paranormal show we don’t watch, so it will probably get 6 seasons and a movie.

Either way I'm proud of us for not letting another mediocre show suck us in.  We've spent way too many hours watching shows that we ultimately didn't end up giving a shit about.  (I'm looking at you Six Feet Under)
