Young Leon Trotsky looked like Jean-Ralphio from Parks and Rec.  And, mid-life Trotsky looked like Ron Swanson.

mind.blown.

So did Ron get some sort of de-ager and go back in time to be Jean-Ralphio? Or something? (I'm sleep deprived today, so I feel like I can't make sense of this)

I liked the LUCIFER pilot enough to keep watching it. It's not ground-breaking, but it's fun for network TV.
I still dislike the premise. We don't need Castle with the Devil. But Tom Ellis is just so damn charming and perfect for the role it's hard to stop watching it.
We gave up on LUCIFER by episode 3. SNORE.

Finished up watching TOGETHERNESS... they wrapped it up pretty neatly, but with a "Super Mega Happy" Ending that seemed rather improbable.  It was satisfying though.  Since it was cancelled, at least there's that.

Just saw MR. ROBOT is coming back on 7/13.  Anyone that's not watching this and would enjoy a dark, mind-fucky, computer hacker-y drama that you can watch without having to be too much of a computer nerd, catch up on this.  I think it is streaming on Hulu Plus, and via the USA website with a cable company log-in.  It's probably the most astonishing Season 1 of a show I've ever watched, and there's some great stuff on TV right now.

Liking this rec. I haven't had a chance to see it, yet, and I needed something new-to-me to watch. Will put it first in my queue. Thanks!

I've heard some really good stuff about Mr. Robot, and do want to watch it! It's definitely on my list.

That's on the list. Yesterday we decided to give Stranger Things a try. We binge-watched the first four episodes...

Is anybody watching Preacher?  We tried, but finally gave up after three or four episodes.  I had no idea what was going on.

I've recorded all of the episodes of PREACHER so far but haven't watched one yet.
No one seems to be talking about it. Is it a sleeper or is it a snoozer?

I'm liking Preacher. I read the comics but it has been years and I don't remember much outside of the characters (not that it would matter because this season is more of a prequel for the comics). It is a slow build but there are times it just nails it. I think it is definitely worth a watch.

It's just sort of neurotic so far, doesn't know what it wants to be.  Maybe it all ties together and makes some sense eventually, but I don't have the attention span for the long game.

First episode I watched last night was very promising.

Mr. Robot season 2... continues to be solid, but I can't imagine anyone just picking up on the second season premiere and being able to follow it at all.  I was having trouble remembering everything that was going on with everyone from last season.

I think I'm totally lost this season. I don't remember anyone's motivation for anything.
