“Heart related illness”. Apparently he’ll be fine.

Coincidentally, finally getting back to Better Call Saul. Watched the first 2 season years ago. Decided to rewatch them before jumping into 3.

Damn. I forgot how good this show is. The cast is so f’ing good.
I've always been crazy but its kept me from going insane.

I couldn't help myself. I thought I was stronger, but I caved like a little bitch and watched Ted Lasso ep 1 and 2.

Oh sure, it was good at the time. Felt great even. But now I just feel sad and not-in-a-good-way dirty.

And I want more of that sweet, sweet Ted goodness.

huh, LeVar Burton's stint hosting Jeopardy! was one week (the previous hosts had a two week run). That's a bummer. Burton did improve after that first night, but there were still some choppy moments.

Started watching "Dark" the German Netflix time travel show. One episode in and I have no clue what's going on, the name seems all too appropriate, and I am loving it!

You will have to keep a journal to keep up with the characters and plot points.

It's a STUNNINGLY good show though. Probably my second fave Netflix show after COBRA KAI. It's also complete, 3 seasons and done, just like the writers planned from the outset.

Enjoy!

Sidenote: I went out of my way to find a coat that looks JUST like Jonas's yellow hooded coat (Old Navy sold a very similar one the year DARK debuted) just because of this show.

Ha! ESPN is running "The Ocho" type programming again (for what looks like a day's worth of programming wackiness).

There's something called "Strongman: Clash on the Coast." Is that the deal where The Mountain from GoT is supposed to fight that Beast guy? Is his name Eddie?

Also, new this year is the Mullet Championships and Air Guitar Championships. Also Døds Diving (aka Death Diving) is back, but I think it might be a replay of last year's contest.

Yeah I'm 1 episode in and already trying to work out how everyone is linked to everyone else. And that's before all the weird time travel stuff I saw on the trailer haha

Beyond how good DARK is on a storytelling level, the casting department should get the Nobel Prize in Casting.

Just to echo what worry and qt have said the first season dark was probably one of the most engrossing series I've watched. I havnt watched the following 2 seasons and know I'll have to rewatch season 1 as there's so many moving parts.

The mrs didn't like it and I havnt dedicated the time to it.

Thanks all my only concern is that I don't have the mental capacity to focus on it all haha life is somewhat full at the moment and most of my watching has been quite easy.

I second every bit of QT's statement (especially about taking notes!) except I have Dark ahead of Stranger Things, then probably Cobra Kai. Dark is one of the best, if not THE best show I've seen in probably 15 years.

Reservation Dogs (FX/Hulu/I think it's on that Disney+ for adults thing outside the US): 2 episodes out so far, and it's pretty great. Verrrrry funny, occasionally sad, and so far pretty much always charming. Centers around 4 good but rough around the edges kids. It was co-created by Taika Waititi so if you've liked his kid characters, you'll probably like these ones. The other co-creator (Sterling Harjo, who is Native American) likely is the driving force for the show, but his sensibilities seem to be a match made in heaven with TW's. Not as much quirk, but just as much wry and unexpected humor.

Also, the dude who played Hanzee on S2 of Fargo is in this as a recurring character, and he is SO funny. I won't say he steals the show, cuz everyone's good, but he's definitely a highlight of every scene he's in.

Finished SCHITT'S CREEK. What a wonderful show, and what a great set of plot resolutions for the last season for these characters. Many tears were shed.

Now onto something new.

Turned on Cocaine Cowboys thinking it was going to be a cool 80’s Miami Narcos type show. It’s not..it’s a documentary yet it is really good. On ep 3.

CNN has been running a docuseries about the history of the sitcom. They had an episode about workplace comedies, so the obvious culprits were covered - The Office, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock.. and so forth.

In the discussion about the American version of The Office, the pilot (and very early episodes I think) where done in a shot for shot copy of the British version. And it rated terribly. This caused them to alter course and branch out and do their own thing. That gives me hope that if/when I watch more episodes, they will get better. The thing is, I've seen clips of the original British version and I thought it was hilarious. I guess it just didn't translate well over to the Americanized version?

Also, I've never seen Scrubs. It had some minor coverage in this episode about workplace comedies and looks hilarious. Can anyone vouch for it?

Yes we discussed all this a couple of pages back or maybe another thread...

Scrubs is the best. I need say no more.

I'm a huge fan of the British Office and the American version was terrible until they decided to stop trying to just do that and do their own thing.

Oh, absolutely. I actually started that discussion, ha! I was just confirming that the history of sitcoms series on CNN confirmed what you guys stated up thread about british and american versions of The Office.

Scrubs discussion is new to me though, so I must have missed that one. It looks really hilarious. The talking mole after shaving the mustache bit was fantastic.

We started YELLOWSTONE...it was good. I'm not sure I know entirely all that's going on yet, but the characters are all compelling and Costner is ace.
