ATLANTA... 1st episode was pretty good... 2nd episode (mostly in the jail) was AMAZING.  Looking forward to watching #3 which was on last night.
Dude's story about how he ended up in jail after seeing a guy whom he hadn't seen in like 11-12 years was THE BEST.

That lemon pepper wet, though?

The best was when the guy turned out to be right in front of him and was apologetic.
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I re-watched the whole exchange immediately.

ATLANTA Episode 3:

"Yes, my name is '12 Years A Slave', the slave."

"The vest is a Kroger's bag from up the street and this is a lightsaber."

"There's probably a bullet in here, just to let y'all know."

The entire scene in the trailer, especially the phone call.

Watch it now.  This show is great.

We love it.
The best part for me was that I had an interaction with a dude at that exact same parking spot about 15 years ago.

Him: I'll keep an eye on your car.
Me: Word to Herb.
Him: Did you just say "Word to Herb"?
Me: Yeah. Sorry.

Amazon's "Fleabag" made me really laugh our loud 4 times in the first episode. This bodes well.

This Is Us looks like it will fill my needed spot of realistic drama series.

I am loving Luke Cage.
Also just binged season 1 of iZombie, and am now considering cable so that I can actually watch the CW live.

I laughed the first time I saw this story, then again today upon re-reading.

I am liking it so far. I am very interested to see how I will feel about that certain cast member in older person make-up as we get into this week's episode.

I love PITCH so far. Baseball drama on TV! The dad from Wonder Years! Zak Morris with a beard!

The best thing I have seen so far is Speechless. They do a perfect job of using someone with disabilities but not making them the butt of all the jokes. And it is truly funny, not just a "feel good" show about disabilities. I want to like The Good Place more than I really do. It isn't bad, but it just seems to be missing something. Hopefully as it goes on it will find it's footing.

I agree about THE GOOD PLACE. I don't dislike it, but it is definitely missing something. Just don't know what that is. A villain? An implied direction of where the show might go?

I totally forgot about SPEECHLESS. Need to check that one out. Thanks for the reminder.

Yes, I've added The Good Place and Speechless both to my DVR. I've noticed I'm mostly recording 30 minute sitcoms - probably because I'm leaning towards shows that don't require my undivided attention so that I can do other things while they are on.

But that's what HGTV and the Food Network are for!

New season of BLACK MIRROR is out on Netflix today.  Looking greatly forward to seeing the new stuff.  And 6 more sometime next year.

Have also been enjoying the 2 new additions to the ABC comedy lineup, SPEECHLESS and AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE, formerly known as "The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport".

When I look at many of the ABC comedies that I watch, I am reminded that they are nearly all the same but differentiated by being about a different group of people (stereotypically so, some would say):

THE MIDDLE: Poor people
BLACK-ISH: Blacks
FRESH OFF THE BOAT: Asians (more specifically Chinese/Taiwanese)
THE GOLDBERGS: Jewish people (from the 80's)
THE REAL O'NEAL'S: Gays
MODERN FAMILY: Also gays, but rich ones... or maybe Realtors... or annoying Colombian immigrants
AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE: Fats
SPEECHLESS: The handicapped

I don't watch REAL O'NEAL'S, stopped watching MODERN FAMILY 3 years ago, and rarely get to BLACK-ISH just due to timeslot. 

But the other 5 are all good quality shows.  But they all feel the same.  Yet I find that I enjoy them somehow.  I don't know.

The networks know this, and they know that you and your demographic will keep watching them if they keep making them.

It's the reason CBS exists at all.
