can't really go into too much detail, since i don't even know if anyone else here is watching this, but should note that the show will be made available for free (with ads) later this year in the fall for those who don't want to pay the subscription.

one of the funniest things about this show is how they keep teasing the audience with the idea of Daniel and Johnny becoming friends, only to pull the rug out from beneath them romantic-comedy style. i'm probably not the only person watching who keeps "'shipping" these dudes, not in a romantic way but in a buddy-buddy, male-bonding way... it's almost like the sexual tension on shows like Cheers (Sam and Diane), Friends (Rachel and Ross), Big Bang Theory (Penny and Leonard), X-Files (Mulder and Scully), Moonlighting (David and Maddie) etc etc etc... except, like i said, instead of being star-crossed lovers who everyone's waiting to finally get together, they feel like they're destined to become buddies and team up, but every time they get close, something happens to drive them further apart. it's a fun twist on the formula, and it's been amusing up to this point, but hopefully they don't keep repeating the same formula every season... sooner or later you've got to pay it off, and where this season leaves off, you can definitely see the opportunity for that to occur in season 3.
Hmmm, for free with ads? I'll have to remember this come the fall.
Cobra Kai Season 1/2 moving to Netfix, season 3 coming too

I'm pretty excited about the move... I only got to watch the first two episodes on Youtube when they were free. Now I can binge both seasons when it hits Netflix.

Did anyone see "Hoops" on Netflix? I just finished it. It's no Bojack Horseman or Tuca & Bertie or Big Mouth or F is For Family or Famiy Guy. It approaches Andrew Dice Clay levels of unfunniness sometimes.

My new favourite show, Raised by Wolves on HBO Max. Ridley Scott directed the first 3 episodes, executive producer on the rest, I believe.

Surprised no one is talking about this show on here. Anyways, check it out. It's excellent.

I'm sure there's a thread for this somewhere, I just can't find it. Trailer was a serious mashup of scenes, pretty hard to focus on who's who.

if I had CBS plus access, I'd definitely watch this, my fav King book. But I don't, so I can't, and I'll just wait until Netflix or Amazon Prime gobbles it up.

The Grinch Who Stole My Childhood

it can't be as bad as Jim Carrey's Grinch though right?

i did not watch this. i will never watch anything with the Grinch other than the original holiday TV special. you just can't improve on perfection. so i have no idea how bad this really was, but this quote gives me a pretty good idea:
Grinch actor Matthew Morrison wrote:"I took a lot from Joaquin Phoenix's performance in Joker.”
what's wrong, did a Grinch based on Travis Bickle feel too light-hearted and whimsical for you?

Certainly nothing compares to the original, but I have no problem with a live TV version. I just won't be watching it, that's all.

But if you REALLY want to get upset about a re-imaging of a classic cultural icon, feast your eyes on this!

People watching this movie will be mad at the chicken. They may even feel like choking the chicken.

And then they're gonna want to slaughter some poultry.

holy crap, that's awesome casting. not sure how Pascal will do as Joel, he's a good actor and can definitely pull it off, but i imagined the character as more of a younger Kris Kristofferson/James Brolin type. but Lyanna Mormont is gonna nail it.

so that makes two former GoT'ers heading up this thing. HBO didn't have to look far for this cast. it makes sense though: Pascal fought the undead Mountain, and Ramsey fought some White Walkers, so they've both got experience going up against "zombies" already.

But so what, this is campy fun for sure. I laughed all the way thru this show, and will gladly look forward to the next season.

Mare of Easttown was pretty good. it kind of fits the formula of these cop-mystery shows where each episode contains 1 or 2 red herrings pointing you at a different suspect, before eliminating that suspect in the very next episode (or occasionally bringing back one of the previous ones). it was still pretty shocking though when the real killer turned out to be sosorry.

they push the Philly thing a bit hard in places. not too bad, but the part where a bunch of Eagles fans pelt the murdered girl's body with batteries was a little over-the-top, i thought.

"Pretty good" is a pretty good description. The acting was top notch, it was obsessed over here in the Philly area becuase of the accurate dialect of a certain county. She did a bang up job. Its also a bit embarrassing considering every under aged girl in this show had a kid out of wedlock, was fucking their uncle/cousin, and everyone seemed to be an alcoholic. But, 'yeah Delco!". :(

TheBaxter wrote:it was still pretty shocking though when the real killer turned out to be sosorry.
I got angry at myself for falling for the uncle-is-the-killer plot when it was so damned obvious he wasn't. I thought for sure it was Mare's best friend though. The kid being the killer, well that was a Shamalamadingdong twist (meaning, kinda stupid.).

I watched a Val Kilmer documentary on Prime last week called "Val"/

I happened to have watched Top Secret and The Doors in recent weeks for no particular reason, and I normally steer clear of documentaries about actors, but since he was top of mind I gave it a go.

It was his own making, he is an avid videographer of sorts it seems, having had made home movies from an very early age all thru his life.

didn't know he had throat cancer... his son did most of the voice-over work, and sounds just like him.

I was hoping for a bit more behind-the-scenes stuff from his earlier work that I personally love, and less shown of him wandering around the streets NOW, but man, I certainly wasn't expecting it to be quite so emotional. Seems like a really cool dude, really eccentric, really loves his kids, and had a pretty great career overall.

Check it out, I think its worth it.

As usual, I'm years behind you guys on these streaming shows.

Finished the first season of Peaky Blinders this weekend. It was ok, good enough to keep up with 6 episodes. Can't beleive they stretched this to 5 seasons thought.

I've been watching Cobra Kai. It's about two middle-aged men settling old scores and reliving their glory days through their kids' generation.

just watched Midnight Mass on Netflix, the latest Stephen King adaptation by director Mike Flanagan.

ok, it's not actually a Stephen King adaptation, but it sure feels like one. the King influence is strong with this one, pulling elements from works like Storm of the Century, The Mist, The Green Mile, and, most strongly of all, i'm not even going to say it in spoiler text because it would reveal too much about this show. i was getting a strong vibe of that last one even from the first episode, though the similarities to that particular book really aren't revealed until about halfway through the series.

i really enjoyed it, despite a pretty slow start. there are a few really long, pretentious monologues where people have complicated philosophical discussions that feel like they're pulled more from a philosophy textbook than any kind of real-life conversation, but for the most part they didn't bother me too much (and the last one was pretty beautifully written, and probably the rest of the series was mostly just an excuse to have a character recite this particular monologue, but luckily the lead-up to it was good enough to be worthwhile in its own right).

Watching Neill Blomkamp's Oats Studios on Netflix. If you liked Love, Death, and Robots this will be your kind of thing. It's a series of sci-fi shorts and the one called Zygote gives a taste of what Alien 5 might've been like.
