    I’m very late to starting The Boys, but even though I started a week ago I only have two episodes left. This is fantastic. Karl Urban continues to be effing awesome. I’m going to be bummed when I’m all caught up either tonight or tomorrow. Sounds like season 3 won’t be coming out until 2022.

    While very good, the ending was anti-climatic, but at least it provided closure, before being cancelled/not renewed.


    The series was canceled/not renewed rather unexpectedly if remember correctly. So the final of the series was actually more of a season ending. The movie tried to tie up everything in 1 shot rather than doing a final season. It sucks that it had to go that way.

    Reading into it on wiki, that seemed to be the case, which is why I was thankful that all the storylines “closed” at the end of S3. “Brotherhood” (SHO series a few years back) had the same demise, and that show also had closure.

    As for the movie, the article said that it was going to be 2 2-hour movies, then it became 1 2-hour movie, and it was just a mess trying to get the project done from the start. I’ll probably watch it tomorrow.

    Penguin Town (Netflix streaming)

    8 ep series (30 min each ep, or so) about the South African penguin colony.

    It’s about penguins, so I had to watch it. Many years ago, a buddy worked at the zoo in CO Springs, and I got to help hand-feed their waddle of penguins. It was all the awesome.

    2 episodes in, it’s a decent little project.

    Hot take: not getting all the love for Owen Wilson in Loki. He’s playing the same part as every other part he’s played: Owen Wilson

    Other than that Loki is awesome.

    Owen Wilson has about as much range as Ben Stiller.

    He’s definitely still Owen Wilson. But the part itself is a departure from his usual, and his Owen Wilsonness works. Plus, it is finally as role where they aren’t trying to convince us he’s in his 20s or 30s.

    But, I mean…maybe change the candence of how you talk or change your haircut or something. He’s the exact same person in every role: himself

    Oh THIS. For :censored: sake, it’s called acting. He needs to actually try doing that. He’s never going to be a male Streep, but geez could he at least try to be a different character?

    They made a movie years later as well. Heard it was about the same.

    Just got done with the movie. I felt that it was a stronger ending than the series (probably due to everyone knowing this was IT for the series/movie). It tied up rather nicely. I’m murdering the quote, but it felt like “In triumph, there is tragedy, and in tragedy, triumph.”

    Home Before Dark – I’m halfway through S1. This season goes 10 episodes and I really hope it finishes as strongly as it started. Too often series go too long and I feel as though right now this story should be wrapped by with 8 episodes or less, so I hope I’m proven wrong.

    Of note the girl that plays the lead Hilde (Brooklynn Prince) is a tremendous actor and was only 9 or 10 when S1 was shot. Hopefully she doesn’t face the pitfalls of so many child actors before her because if this series is any indication she’s gotta a lot of career left if she wants it.

    This is the first role I’ve seen him have a short haircut ;)

    I just finished episode 2 of Loki.

    While he’s still mostly Owen Wilson (the way he talks, etc.) but it is a much different role than I’ve ever seen him in. His screentime with Hiddleston has been fantastic, IMO. Their back and forth banter has been extremely entertaining.

    Very much disappointed to see that Clarice will not get a second season due to mismanagement by CBS and/or Paramount+.

    I originally didn’t buy into it at first, but the series got stronger as it went. The storylines have been believable and lacked hysterics, the settings and casting fantastic, and the lead actress that plays Clarice has been nothing short of phenomenal. I don’t think Scooby visits here anymore but I know he would agree with me. The latest arc at least was wrapped up during the final episode yesterday, but it’s bittersweet.

    Loki ep4 is spectacular. Gonna be a great last 2 eps and there’s gonna be a second season so there will prolly be a cliffhanger.

    Also thought Owen Wilson was good in this episode.

    [hide]I love that they are basically making the narcisisist Loki fall in love with himself [/hide]

    Explained (Netflix Streaming):

    Covering various topics, 20 min or so episodes.

    Decent time killer. You will have opinions. I sure did. And those opinions run the gamut of companies, people, practices, everything. That is all I’ll say on the matter. ;)

    History Of The Sitcom (CNN, weekly).

    Good series so far. Follows the evolution of the sitcom, and addresses certain key points. They did not shy away from the current Cosby situation, but paid due respect to the show, which I was good with. They also touched on certain shows, I mean, they had to, like All In The Family. However, they also touched on “lesser” shows (heavy on quotation marks) like Maude and Three’s Company, shows that would be difficult to do today.

    Definitely recommend the series. Love the pop-culture series that CNN has done in recent years. Lots of in-depth info and entertaining.

    They’ve already done this. It’s called The Goldbergs. Total ripoff.

    I liked the Goldbergs (through season 4 maybe) and imho it didn’t have as much sentimentality nor social commentary as The Wonder Years.

    [hide]It was well known that Kang was coming in this series but note he would never say that his name was Kang. I believe his big intro will be in the next Ant Man but that’s not until 2023. Majors is in the process of being the next breakout actor. [/hide]

    Hearing now that the show runners let him improvise that scene. He moved a lot more than they expected. You can actually see it when you watch it again. He moves, then the camera moves to keep him in the shot. :lol: Guy is crazy talented.

    So I regrettably gave a show called Love Island (UK) 20 minutes of my time. It’s sort of a Survivor meets dating reality show in which a dozen or so 20-somethings are locked in a villa and hoo boy does the never-ending fun ensue!

    Aside from the show being insipid, what is it with the yoots of England? Imagine someone talking with a British accent and then almost never allowing their lips to touch – as if every word rolls into the next with the last fading off into oblivion. They come across as lazy or disinterested. I haven’t been to England for a bit, but one of our neighbors is a lovely couple from London, I watched The Crown and they never talked like that! :mrgreen:

    I stumbled upon Season 1 of DAVE which has now started S2. E1 was a bit slow but by E3 it really hit its stride and is a really smart comedy. I’m hoping it will continue.

    I’m going to say I’m actually looking forward to the season finale of Kevin Can F*** Himself on AMC. I like the premise and the execution of the show more than the story, but it’s very well done. However had I tried to watch it in real-time I probably would have abandoned it halfway through the first episode.

    The show starts out as a pretty conventional (if over the top) sit com where the wife is vastly smarter and better looking than her oaf of a husband, but as the show goes on it’s revealed that when she’s not around her husband her life’s not a comedy.

    Not great, but it takes some much needed swipes at the entire genre of sitcoms.

    For me, the show falls under the category of “guilty pleasure.” It’s one that I reluctantly admit I watch.

    It’s little more than an assemblage of immoral, unethical antiheros making their way through lives of crime and mayhem…and yet…it’s pretty entertaining. :oops: :)

    Just watched the American Experience episode about L. Frank Baum. Not surprisingly it was wonderfully done. I had no previous knowledge of his backstory (such as his connection to castorine oil) nor the impetuses for creating the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He tried to make his way as the seller of fancy roosters, as an actor/theater producer, as a salesman, he started a professional baseball franchise as well as a newspaper in Aberdeen, and he was involved heavily in the suffrage movement just for starters. He was an infinitely interesting character.

    The Last Narc (Amazon Prime)

    4 part series about the murder (and possible truth) behind a DEA agent’s murder in the mid-80s.

    The fictional TV show Narcos (Netflix) covers this, obviously, however this show puts all its focus on the murder and events leading up to it, including involving former DFS (Mex Secret Police) and other DEA agents, and Mex State Police who know some details.

    I’m through 3 of the 4 parts (about 50min per part). Fascinating to someone who is new to the case. Intriguing to those who know more than the average person.

    There are two spin offs of Yellowstone in the works. Y:1883 is the series that will tell the origin story of the Dutton’s on how they came to Montana. Sam Elliott is the big name that has been talked to be confirmed for this series. Though what I have read is that he isn’t a Dutton but a character that is big in the Dutton’s travels to Montana…or something like that. Tim and Faith are probably going to be Dutton’s, but that is purely my speculation.

    The other series is 6666. This series will focus on a ranch in Texas with some characters from Yellowstone. The only characters that I have seen to be speculated to be on that series is Walker and Jimmy.

    Supposedly Y:1883 is to hit the air this year sometime but I don’t think filming has begun on that so who knows. 6666 has no premiere date yet.

    All I know is that I’m pissed that the Olympics, supposedly, pushed back season 4 of Yellowstone. I’m tired of waiting!!

    We have Direct TV at the house. And sometimes when I turn on the tv the picture is ahead of the words by a couple seconds. So I turn off the tv and tv it back on and 90% of the time it’s back in sync. If not a second time of turning off and on works.

    Is there something I can do to prevent this from happening at all?!?!?!

    I have the same problem with my FireTV. Resetting it always works but in my basement, I have a sound at that I can adjust the timing of it if it goes out of sync.

    Sometimes I feel like it is just part of the HDMI cable. Never had that issue with S-video and AV cables!

    Has anyone else watched 100 Foot Wave on HBO? It’s six episodes and tracks surfer Garret McNamara and others as they first begin to surf Nazara, Portugal and then their quest to ride a 100 foot wave, which apparently has long been the Holy Grail of big wave surfers.

    The surf video and interactions between the surfer, PW, and spotter are fantastic and the toll it takes on their bodies is incredible. The backstory stuff gets a little fluffy and long IMHO but it’s still worth a watch. One guy caught an 80 foot wave in one of the early seasons (8 story building :shock: ) and watching surfers try to ride the power of the waves and ocean is amazing. Looks like someone caught a 102 foot wave there in 2020 after the filming ended but I think there is some video on YouTube of the ride.

    Has anyone else watched 100 Foot Wave on HBO? It’s six episodes and tracks surfer Garret McNamara and others as they first begin to surf Nazara, Portugal and then their quest to ride a 100 foot wave, which apparently has long been the Holy Grail of big wave surfers.

    The surf video and interactions between the surfer, PW, and spotter are fantastic and the toll it takes on their bodies is incredible. The backstory stuff gets a little fluffy and long IMHO but it’s still worth a watch. One guy caught an 80 foot wave in one of the early seasons (8 story building :shock: ) and watching surfers try to ride the power of the waves and ocean is amazing.

    I really enjoyed it. I would absolutely love to visit that lighthouse some day….seeing that break in person would have to be mind blowing.

    Just finished The Chair on Netflix with Sandra Oh and quite enjoyed it. And at 6 episodes it was nice and tidy and not bloated. Conversely I just started the 9 episode S1 of Hit and Run (Israel but some of the dialogue is in English) and E1 was great. Hope at 9 it doesn’t feel bloated by the end.

    Band of Brothers premiered 20 years ago today. Arguably the best military mini series of all time. ☝️https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1wlYPlwjGOY

    Anyone interested in the new ‘The Wonder Years’? The original ‘The Wonder Years’ is probably my all-time fav. tv. series. So I’m interested to see how it goes.

    Arguably? What’s the counter argument for a better military mini-series.

    The Pacific was good too, Band of Brothers is the GOAT!

    Feel that way about Better Call Saul. Bob had to go and have a heart attack. Dang him! :wink: So many shows delayed due to the Rona. And then other circumstances :(

    Click Bait on Netflix. 8 part limited series and done very well. I can’t say much without spoiling something but I watched all 8 parts between noon yesterday and 5am this morning…whoops.

    EDIT: I think what pulled me in with this one is you could 100% see it happening in this day and age.

    Generation Kill is incredibly good, though not up to Band of Brothers standard. It’s much, much better than Pacific.

    Started re-watching the series (Mexico) from S1, I mean it’s been a couple years, want to refresh. Forgot they intro’d a certain character early on. And I geeked out just as much as when I first saw it, knowing what happens in real life.

    The final season of Goliath starts in 2 days. I hope S4 is every bit as solid as the previous 3.

    The Muhammad Ali series on PBS so far has been tremendous.

    This is absolutely fantastic.

    If I recall correctly there was a lot of searching for hidden meanings and theories for what could have happened to Tony and family based on the final song played. Turns out there was a fantastic reason ‘The Soprano’s’ ended with Don’t Stop Believing to annoy the production crew!

    I just finished season 1 of Ted Lasso. As I said on Facebook I was late in watching it as I am not much of a soccer fan and thought it was going to be too soccer oriented.

    I was wrong. I just loved it. I had a smile on my face after every episode.

    My only (very) minor gripe is that sometimes the British accents were hard to understand so I would have to rewind to re-listen to some of the lines.

    I definitely have a hard time with hard core British accents. Cockney, I suppose? There’s a British guy who is part of our Sunday LTD Brewing gathering, and I understand him perfectly. It’s a softer accent, but very obviously British. Something like “Lock, Stock, And Two Smoking Barrels” movie, I am completely lost. Need the closed captioning.

    The Lost Symbol – series based upon the Dan Brown (The Da Vince Code) book of the same name. 2 episodes in now. It’s nothing earth shattering, but if you like the genre I would recommend giving it a shot.

    I really enjoyed the book. The TV series definitely intrigues me.
