    So, signed up for a Paramount+ trial for the South Park “Made For TV Movie Event” (IT’S NOT A SPECIAL! as the ad proclaims). Worth it. Very funny, and as usual, South Park drops the lines when you least expect it at times, and also leaves you hanging at times. You think you know where they are gonna go, and then, whoops, nope.

    And then I cancelled the trial, because the viewing options were worthless to me. :)

    Anyone watch the Sinner? Started it on Netflix, season 1 was good. Started season 2 and dumped it, went to season 3. My wife had to keep watching it and it got horribly long and drawn out and when it finally ended I was so happy to be done with it. Season 4 is only on USA channel, not on Netflix yet. Bill Pullman is a retired detective and he has a Columbo like character. Up to episode three and so far it’s better than season 3 but Bill Pullman is annoying with the old man grunts and groans and idiosyncrasies of an old retired detective.

    I’ll report back after season four.

    Local popcorn shop in New Hope gets national ad from Steven Colbert’s late show. Looks like he’ll need to expand.

    I can almost throw a rock from my house into New Hope and I’ve never heard of this place. Guess I’m going to have to change that

    Watched the first 2 parts last night, a little slow in some sections but better than I expected. Watching them write songs when you know how it’s gonna come out is riveting. Also kind of shoots down the blame Yoko narative. There’s also some parts when they are obviously high that are funny. Seems like they were trying to hide it but there’s one shot where Ringo pops up from behind a separator and coughs out a hit that’s gold. Lennon asking if Tucson is in Arizona is great, too.

    Watching them create was awesome. Paul pulling Get Back out of thin air and conceiving half of Abbey Road in the middle of their recording Let it Be is insane. John would come in with great songs he wrote the night before, and George had enough material it eventually because the triple-album All Things Must Pass. And to the untrained eye Ringo was no slouch. He’s one of the most respected drummers of all time, for YEARS was the highest paid session drummer, and there’s stories about innovative he was as a drummer. I mean THEY were excited as hell to have him replace Pete Best.

    Yoko was an influence to some degree. Her and John were reportedly mired in a heroin addiction at the time, and he began spending more and more time with her meaning less time to write with Paul. But that’s not her fault per se that’s just life. The bigger impetus than Yoko was their hiring of Allen Klein at the protest of Paul, despite the Rolling Stones telling them not to and a host of others. That drove a wedge between Paul and the other 3 who sadly after it was too late realized he was a bad dude.

    What’s crazy is how young they were and fast they progressed from Please Please Me & I want To Hold Your Hand to Strawberry Fields, Helter Skelter, etc. Paul was only 26 during these sessions. It was inevitable they were going to break up but Klein imho hastened the result.

    Oh yeah regarding Ringo, when Dave Grohl – the supposed anti-capitalist worth $300+ million sings your praises as an influence – that’s good enough for me. :wink:

    Not sure how I missed The Detour, but I’m now into S2 and it’s still awesome. Also not sure how the lead is not related to Ed Helms.

    Jason Jones is hilarious in this. I think the 4th season is the last one.

    Jimmy Carr: His Dark Material (Netflix Streaming):

    Strap in. Blue, dark humor, and hilarious, if you’re into that sort of thing. I cannot post the OTHER clip that popped up on a google search, but this one will suffice, and it is the tamest:

    Hulu has been on a nice run lately. Dopesick is watchable, Only Murders in the Building is very good, and Reservation Dogs was probably the best new show in a number of years.


    Just watched Only Murders in the Building this week and also thought it was very good! Recommend 👍🏽

    Coyote on Paramount+

    First, I will say there is a ton of good content on that app. Well worth the $9.99/month.

    As for Coyote, it’s Michael Chicklis and he directs it as well. Retired Border Patrol Agent who goes down to Mexico to finish his old partners cabin. Ends up getting involved (not voluntary) with the cartel. I am only 4 episodes into it, but found myself watching it today rather than other stuff I needed to get done. Solid binge-worthy show.

    There is quite a bit of language, just a heads up, and the title of the special does sum up a majority of the humor. ;)

    So I watched it. I haven’t watched one of his whole sets before but I was a bit disappointed. Some of the shorter clips or roast clips were awesome compared to this special. His laugh is odd too but then he poked fun at himself so I didn’t think anything of it, but it wasn’t as dark as some of the stuff I have seen of his.

    I am now REALLY intrigued. I have added some past specials to my list. Thank you.

    The first one I would tell you to watch is the roast of Justin Bieber. But any of the clips of his other stuff, he doesn’t laugh and is pretty deadpan which I find hilarious. Certain comedians laughing at their own stuff is awesome (Redd Foxx) but he is more like Daniel Tosh.

    Anyway, it’s 6 and 1/2 dozen of the other but I just didn’t find this new one as good as the last stuff I have watched.

    Through about 7 eps of the new Cobra Kai season (Netflix streaming):

    It’s still awesome cheesiness. If they are smart, they end it after one more season. They MIGHT be able to stretch 2 more, but that’s pushing it. Still loving the nostalgic ride, though.

    I started this, just cannot get into it. There are a lot of comedians I just don’t find that funny. John Pinette (RIP) and Christopher Titus are my favorite. I got to see John Pinette at MOA shortly before he died after he had lost a bunch of weight. Was such a funny guy.

    I am a prude I guess, just not into constant crude sexual humor or comedians who swear every fifth word. In no surprise, I cannot stand Amy Schumer at all.

    Both those guys told stories, maybe that is why I liked them so much? Anyone have any comedians similar to those 2 they can recommend?

    Jim Gaffigan is known as the best “clean” comic but Brian Regan is also very good

    Pinette and Titus are great. Two different styles, though.

    I guess if you can get into “out of left field” humor, Dmitri Martin, Steven Wright, and Mitch Hedberg (who work mostly clean) are some faves of mine.

    Lewis Black is the modern George Carlin. I will die on THAT hill.

    Carlin is the GOAT, no doubt. I’m a big fan of Anthony Jezelnik but I can’t really remember how close to “clean” he is. I don’t necessarily remember a lot of sex talk. He does talk about some f’d up stuff but he is the king of delivery.

    AJ is about as blue as blue can be, he just doesn’t necessarily use cuss words. ;) Subtle but not subtle difference.

    Death To 2020 (and the followup Death To 2021) (Netflix streaming)

    Snarky recap of the years, real footage mixed with comedians. I guess it’s like the Daily Show but harsher. Best comparison I can come up with. I thought it was good stuff.

    Untold: Crime & Penalties (Netflix)

    Heard this documentary mentioned during a Russo podcast interview with Mike Rupp and it was fascinating. It’s about the Danbury Trashers that joined the UHL in 2004 after being bought by mobster James Galante as a present to his 17-year-old son who he makes President and GM. Imagine The Sopranos if Tony bought a hockey team and gave it to AJ and he runs it like Slap Shot. Rupp joins the team during the NHL lockout season of 2005. I didn’t know anything about this story…definitely worth the watch.

    The Sopranos were allegedly based on this family, at least partially. :shock: :)

    Watched his two earlier specials on Netflix tonight. Not as much laughing at his own stuff, which is good, but I’d say same level of offensiveness of jokes. Some you saw coming a mile away, others, you are cringing just a bit as you laugh your arse off.

    You almost must watch it alone so no one else sees your reactions!

    So I watched it. I haven’t watched one of his whole sets before but I was a bit disappointed. Some of the shorter clips or roast clips were awesome compared to this special. His laugh is odd too but then he poked fun at himself so I didn’t think anything of it, but it wasn’t as dark as some of the stuff I have seen of his.

    Watched his two earlier specials on Netflix tonight. Not as much laughing at his own stuff, which is good, but I’d say same level of offensiveness of jokes. Some you saw coming a mile away, others, you are cringing just a bit as you laugh your arse off.


    You almost must watch it alone so no one else sees your reactions!

    On the contrary! Gotta see where that line is with your friends when one makes similar comments! :wink:

    Added, case in point, Exhibit A, the only exhibit needed for this discussion: watch “The Aristocrats” documentary, AND/OR and form of the joke (the latter is widely available on line, in many forms). There’s a litmus test, for sure! :D

    Anyone watch that 4-part BTK documentary on AMC last weekend? Man… even by serial killer standards, he is one sick dude. Scary to think he probably would still be free if he had just laid low and not tried to play “catch me if you can” games with the police and media. His arrogance is the only reason he got caught.

    A lot of profilers claim part of them wants to be caught. They get additional satisfaction in showing you how they did it and got away with it. Pretty messed up.

    My wife watches “This Is Us.” Every minute of every episode is 2-4 people in a dimly lit room having a serious conversation.

    Holy crap it is so depressing. I can’t stand this show.

    :lol: I agree! For TV I either want to laugh or have lots of action. Give me Young Sheldon or something like GoT. I don’t need a therapy session.

    My wife and I watched this too and we lost interest because it didn’t feel like any story line ever ended, they just kept getting twists and turns.

    So it’s a soap opera? My wife likes it, too, and I have sat in on a couple of early episodes but could not do it.

    I started watching The Witcher last week on Netflix after hearing everyone rave about it.

    I’m hooked. Really fun show.

    Essentially yes, but you can’t tune in after missing 20 episodes and still be up to speed. It’s also on its last season and I don’t know how they could tie up all the storylines and not make it watered down.

    Just finished watching S2. Really really liked it. First couple episodes were a little on the slower side, building back up after dramatic season 1 finale. But it ended with a bang. :shock:

    Started watching “Queen Of The South” from the very start, again, since the last season is PROJECTED to hit Netflix in April.

    Teresa flees Mexico after her drug-runner boyfriend is murdered. Settling in Dallas she looks to become the country’s reigning drug smuggler and to avenge her lover’s murder.

    Based on the book, and rather interesting, since women are NOT known as cartel leaders…great series, and rather racy for a USA show (I’d expect this on FX or something). Alice Braga (she was also in I Am Legend and Predators) is perfect for the role, full range of emotion in the messed up life she is living in. Highly recommend the show.

    Netflix is releasing season 4 of Ozark. I was hooked season 1, barely got through season 2, and haven’t looked at 3. I was amazed they got season 3 made. Anyone recommend it or watching it?

    I found season two so beyond believable I didn’t care what happened to the characters anymore. It was a mash up of dramas that didn’t seem to relate and the writers randomly made up each week. This could describe other shows I like but for some reason this one annoyed me.

    I thought each season was watchable, but I agree that it’s been on a linear decline. I think some of these shows are just a rehash of the same theme season after season. Billions, for example, is always about how Chuck is going to sink Bobby Axlerod, no matter the personal cost. They really need to add new plot elements to make it more interesting and entertaining. Ozark is the same kind of show.

    Been watching “The Book of Boba Fett” and so far it has just been very boring for me. I hope it turns around soon, because so far it is not even close to “The Mandalorian”.

    Has anyone seen the series ‘The Chosen’? Only 16 episodes since Dec. 2017. From what I understand they make episodes as they have funding.

    I have none personally. Though there’s was a cartoon series back in the ‘90s, ‘Life with Louie’ that was actually pretty funny.

    I agree. It’s OK but not special. It got a little better in Ep 4 but not close to Mandalorian.

    I love the slow burn of Boba. I likening it to how Walter White (Breaking Bad) rose to the top in the flashback scenes, and when we’re all caught up, and everything in the past has been told, I can’t wait to see how it progresses.

    Watching it so far and yes, not as entertaining as the Mandalorian. It’s still worth watching, but so far not as good.

    We’ve loved almost all the Marvel series on Disney plus too, especially Wandavision and Loki. Watched 2 episodes of Falcon and Winter Soldier though and stopped watching. Too boring.

    When your next struggling to find something to watch, circle back to Falcon. It gets better. WandaVision and Loki are better, but I wasn’t bored with it by the end.

    Falcon and Winter Soldier was probably my second favorite MCU show released so far TBH.
