TV Series (Opinions, Recommendations, Flaming, etc) ***BEWARE POSSIBLE SPOILERS***


Recommended Posts

Really enjoying the limited series Halston on Netflix.  I'm a huge fan of Ewan McGregor, who gives a five-star performance in the lead role.  Excellent story telling, direction and acting all around.   Plus plenty of homoerotic scenes to keep me interested.   If you saw and liked Fosse Verdon, you will dig this as well.  

This one really captures the NYC fashion industry in the 70s/80s as well as Halston's rise to fame and his demise.  Music track throughout is dead perfect as is the performance of Krysta Rodriguez as Liza Minelli.  She is my new movie crush.  Just a doll.

This could totally make up for how terrible Iron Fist was...  

Breaking bad is just like Gilligan's earlier show X-Files in that people think they look smart and edgy if they talk about how much they love it.

Just finished the book last week.  Liked it.  Started the show this past weekend; watched the first two episodes.  There are some changes to the hotel AI (besides the obvious that I'm guessing they co

Mare of Easttown was one of the best things I’ve ever watched. Incredibly well written and acted. 

We are watching the finale tonight.  Can't wait to have some of the questions answered.  Great ensemble cast.

No spoilers. One of the best finales I can think of. 

When writers have the “end” dictated to them in these limited series, they are so much better at writing for closure rather than getting picked up for another season. Watchmen. The Outsider. The Night of. Now this... so good.

Totally agree.  The writers get lost when they have multiple seasons to deal with.  I love when stories come to a close.  That's why, generally, I appreciate cinema over long form series.  I'm pumped for the Mare ending.

Late to the party, caught the first episode of Succession last night.  Wow, is this thing tight.  Fantastic writing and acting performances with a mountain of laughs and cringe moments.  Really hoping the show maintains this pace.  So far, very psyched about the series.

Over a nice French sparkler, just finished season two of Succession.   I am completely blown away by this show.   The writing and acting of/in this series is some of the best I have ever seen.  Stellar cast and brilliant group of writers.   I can't wait to find out what happens next.  Unbelievably entertaining with crisp story lines which are both funny and tragic.  11/10

As you guys are the resident chess heads, thought I'd share the video below.  It showed up on my YouTube recommendations a few minutes ago.  

Guess Alexandra Botez is a Canadian chess prodigy/phenom.  She's fantastic and very easy on the eyes as well.  A goddess in that white dress.  Sitting across from her, I'd have trouble breathing let alone playing chess.

I’d drop a chess piece on the floor simply to bend down and peak under that skirt.   Wow…. Hot and a ranked chess player.  her highest ranking was 2100. That’s great but no where near a top player.  Grandmasters are in the 2400 range and higher.  She’d kick my ass in probably 15 to 20 moves.

So you'd still last longer with her in chess than the bedroom... so you got that going for you

It's very unique.  Cant say I've seen anything like it.  Not sure if it register's if you're not a fan of rap/hip-hop but as a fan of the genre, I think it's absolutely brilliant.  Legit, hysterical.

Really? I wanted to like it, but I just couldn't. I had the opposite reaction - how many "out of place awkward guy" sitcoms have there been? Sure, not many have appeared in a hip-hop setting, but to me, the formula was pretty predictable. I gave it every opportunity, but I think I only had a loud laugh on average once an episode. The rest were kinda just meh.

Fair enough, to each their own.  I've thoroughly enjoyed it.  I guess I understand your formula comment.  I'm not really a sitcom guy, so I dont really have enough context.  I mean, I've watched all these new drama multiple season stuff but I dont consider that "sitcom".  Anywho, you dont typically see hip-hop artists shown in such a vulnerable manner and I think the dialogue and communication is brilliant.

6 episodes into peaky blinders. I like it. Is it worth continuing?

Yes. Hell yes.  Buckle up.
