I like Bosch, I always seem to blow through the new seasons in just a few days. It sort of tries to be The Wire but lacks the humor and memorable characters. I think pulling off the comedy is what separates the truly great crime dramas like Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Wire, Deadwood, Justified, Saul, Boardwalk Empire, maybe The Shield need to watch that again. Those shows are all hilarious and that's what makes them worth a second watch.

Just finished Homeland, it's a solid final season.

My wife loved Yes Dear when we were in college. So, her birthday is coming up and I realize Yes Dear is on no streaming devices. Okay, no problem. I'll just buy the DVDs for her bday. Wrong. It's like the show never existed. The only spot that I have found looks like some bootleg sketchy site where the creator lacks basic grammar skills.

Yeah, I've been waiting for the Drew Carey Show to come out on dvd for years, but no luck. Just Season 1.

Apparently there was an issue with the music rights, so rather than release it with a fake soundtrack, they choose to not release it at all. I'm glad of that though, I don't want it with crappy fill in music.

I noticed The Wonder Years series on amazon one day. There’s a show I assumed would never be on dvd due to music rights.

Yea, I've read that's the issue with Yes Dear too.

Just binged Locke and Key with my wife today. Was pretty good I thought. At least I wanted to keep watching what happened next.

Question. Do I have to have watched Breaking Bad to watch Better Call Saul?

If you're asking because you don't want to watch Breaking Bad at all, ever, then no, you don't have to watch Breaking Bad in order to understand Better Call Saul.

But if you intend to watch both shows I'd recommend watching Breaking Bad first.

Mainly because the characters in Better Call Saul aren't as in the forefront of the story in Breaking Bad so you'll come off watching Better Call Saul only to see the characters you grew to know really well on that show be pushed off to the side in Breaking Bad. Not that they aren't important, they're just not the focus. I just think it would be awkward to watch it that way.


Now that I've watched 4 seasons of BCS I'd be really curious to hear from someone that watched BCS first and then watching BB.

Another couple of shows I really liked recently: Mr. Inbetween on Hulu and Zero Zero Zero on Amazon.

Binged the whole first season of Upload on Amazon Prime over the weekend. I was a pretty big fan of The Good Place during its run, and reading the previews for Upload, I figured it would be somewhat similar. I was wrong, but in a good way. Really interesting show with a lot of laugh out loud moments, but serious undertones. I'm a fan, and am excited for Season 2.

Recently finished Clone Wars and Rebels. I may watch the Mandalorian again now I have a better understanding of Mandalor and the Dark Saber.

Been doing a Star Wars start to finish watch through. Watched the last season of Clone Wars as it came out so it's taken some time but I'm back up to A New Hope now. I think I like Clone Wars overall more than when I first watched it, and the last arc was really great. Rebels wasn't quite as good as Clone Wars, but I still like it.

Of all the new Star Wars movies and TV I would rank them:

1. Clone Wars
2. Mandalorian
3. Rouge One
4. Rebels
5. Solo
6. Force Awakens
7. Rise of Skywalker
8. Last Jedi

You can probably skip 7 and 8 and maybe 6 also.

I liked the CGI shorts for the Star Wars: The Old Republic games more than the movies. The fan made Vader short film on YouTube was also better than those movies.

It probably needs to be said, but Watchmen couldn't have been timed much better.

I just binged Lenox Hill on Netflix and it was outstanding.

Enjoyed watching "Lucifer" on Netflix. The cop procedural part is the weakest part of the show, but the cast is a hoot.

A show about a hedonistic, crime-solving devil isn't up everyone's alley - but it's a lot of fun.

Upload is a fun show. Some really funny comedic moments, with some dramatic elements to boot.

I'll echo this- I really have enjoyed the show so far, and I'm looking forward to the next season's release in August.

I re-discovered AMC's Hell on Wheels last week, and I've enjoyed working through the first two seasons so far. I remember watching the first season or two back when it came out 6-7 years ago, then I stopped for no reason I can recall. Looking forward to watching the final 3 seasons over the next couple of weeks.
