Letterkenny and Schitts Creek are two awesome shows. Love them both.

If anyone is a sucker for those Dodo animal videos that you find on social media, there's a British show on Prime called The Dog Rescuers that's basically the same thing. I guess there's like 7 seasons but they only have season 5 available.

Finished my Sopranos rewatch last night. Such an interesting show. I didn’t go into it with the intention of doing so with the upcoming prequel movie in mind, but now I’m super excited for the movie.

"Chernobyl" on HBO was outstanding.

How I Met Your Mother is currently in syndication on a local channel around my bedtime. As I go back and watch older episodes, the series finale is starting to make a little more sense. I still don’t like it, but I no longer hate it.

Finished Tehran on Apple TV+. Pretty good modern spy thriller; the Israel vs Iran dynamic was a different take from the shows/movies set in the Cold War era or the modern war on terror.

The Queen's Gambit is really good.

What I liked least about that last season wasn't as much the Mother stuff, but that we spent years watching Ted's Id (Barney) slowly grow as a person and in his relationships, and then they just wiped it out in one swoop. May as well have had the married couple divorce just to round out the awfulness.

I tend to like anything Jason Sudeikis or Will Forte do. Speaking of Will Forte, I think Last Man on Earth is on Netflix now, which is a love-it or hate-it show. I hated most of the first season because I don't enjoy main characters you sorta root against, but they changed the character at the season finale of the first season, and I really liked it from then on.

I've not watched the show, but I did have a chance to ride a train 20 miles from Chernobyl when going from Kiev to Minsk back a couple years after the cold war ended (1993). It was interesting to see the Soviet mindset (Belarus and Russia were still pretty well linked) and perspective on the US. I remember the first time someone told me about "all the propaganda" going on in the US and I laughed and thought, "No, its only Russia that puts out propaganda." Right then and there the lightbulb went on.

Every country has their own "spin" and we aren't nearly as good as we think we are.

On to some HBO stuff next. Haven't done True Detective yet, so deciding between that, The Wire, and a Sopranos re-watch.


If you stick with just season 1 of True Detective you'll love it.


Started this last night, and I'm absolutely hooked after 1.5 episodes. Is it truly best to just stop after Season 1? Are there any redeeming qualities of 2 or 3?

Every season of The Wire is outstanding. I would definitely watch that before seasons 2/3 of TD. I mean, it's still better than 100% of whatever is on network TV but definitely not in the same class as season 1.

Yeah, the first season of True Detective is great. Never watched the others -- everyone I knew who did was disappointed.

I remember when it came out the Russians were slamming it. And then it was announced the Russians were going to make their own version - complete with the CIA having a hand in the disaster. I don't know if they ever went forward with that version.

I agree with FVBrewerfan - skip seasons 2, 3 of True Detective and watch The Wire (which is arguably a top five show of all time)

I didn't hate season 2 as much as some people but it was a really slow burn to get to the actual case. Season 3 > season 2 but not anywhere near as good as season 1 and not anywhere near as good as any season of The Wire.
