    Okay… Episode #5 just changed everything.

    Just saw this as well. I loved WKRP and watched it from day 1. I believe it’s the “Turkeys Away” episode where Mr. Carlson comes into the DJ booth and is nosing around, thinking that Johnny is asleep. You can see Johnny’s eyes behind the sunglasses as the “Big Guy” is reaching for something and he says “Don’t touch that!”. :lol: Great stuff. :(

    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.

    It was horrible. I like Carr but this set was just off.

    Wondering if that was due to the ability to have it not used during the day…as appears to MOA.

    I am guessing the location is chosen by the company they are “working for.”

    If they want to perform maintenance on an escalator that is not in use they could always find one at MSP airport. :lol: Those things never seem to be running.

    I watched the first 5 episodes of Reacher today. Ritchson is definitely a better fit physically for Jack Reacher.

    I’ve read all the Reacher books and have been very impressed with how well they are following (this season is based on The Killing Floor, the first Reacher book published).

    I was worried that it would be hard for me to see Ritchson as anyone but Thad Castle from Blue Mountain State but he’s been very good. I’ll probably finish the show tomorrow.

    Reacher’s fun as long as you don’t pay attention to details.

    spoiler, but the idea that solving the case hinges on someone knowing how to correctly use an apostrophe confirms it was written before the internet.

    Is the character of Jack Reacher as stiff and robotic in the books as this Ritchson guy portrays? I mean I get he’s a no-nonsense guy and I read up on the character a bit including commentary from Child, but I didn’t get the impression Reacher was a complete stiff.

    Yes and no. The book that this season was based on was the first Reacher book (3rd or 4th chronologically now, IIRC). But yes he is rather stiff in the books. Lots of quips and short on interpersonal skills.

    I’d say he is playing Reacher close my expectations. Grew up in a marine house and on bases, went to West Point, and spent his career/life on the military. Seems spot on so far to me.

    I’d also add the books are written in a very clipped format, seems like a lot more periods than commas.

    The finale of Boba…the cliffhanger is the least of the excitement. Wasn’t a cliffhanger at all. The REST of the episode…ZOMG. Love it.

    I just finished Reacher on my lunch today. I enjoyed it very much. I see similarities between how Cruise played Reacher and Ritchson did. From what most people have told me Ritchson is more physically comparable to how Reacher is portrayed in the books. I liked what Amazon did with this which reminds me of how well they did Jack Ryan. Now if they would just fucking do Mitch Rapp already!!

    Watched the new Earthquake special, produced by Chappelle (Earthquake had a bit part in Clerks II, and he was hilarious), Netflix streaming.

    30~ minute special, and yes, opinion confirmed, he is hilarious.

    Just finished watching Kristen Bell’s new Netflix Series… The woman in the house across the street from the girl in the window next to the tree down the block from the park with the big slide and the flock of pigeons on the wires running across the field.

    Actually pretty good murder mystery. It’s no Veronica Mars but totally didn’t see the twist coming. Only one thing that I thought was a little annoying

    Has anyone watched Severance on Apple TV? I gave it a shot sight unseen because I like Adam Scott, and man it’s good so far. Gives me Mr. Robot vibes.

    They are 4 episodes into the first season. New episodes every Friday

    I really enjoyed Ep 1. I’m waiting to go further and I’ve heard from friends it gets better.

    After Ep. 3 and 4 I was on the show’s subreddit for a solid hour reading different theories, it definitely ramps up! Ep 1 sets everything up nicely, and it really takes off from there.

    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 👍🏽

    Only Murders was really good, looking forward to when season 2 is released. Great writing & acting.

    E2 of Severance sure ramped up things interest wise! Looking forward to more.

    Thinking of trying out The Thing About Pam, a drama based upon true events around a murder of a woman and the possible wrongful conviction of her husband.

    Resident Alien S2 has been really good. I recommend to anyone to try S1. The lead actor portraying the protagonist is particularly fun to watch.

    Finally Undercover S3 on Netflix has actually been the best season so far. While the series does require a small suspension of disbelief throughout, S3 imho has brought upon less of that and the writers have found their stride. It feels less clunky and more natural. Recommend!

    Also the trailer for Obi-Wan is drool worthy.

    I’m expecting this to be on the level of Mandolorian if not better. As much as I hated Hayden C in the prequels I think he may kill it in this series from the few shots I’ve seen. I believe it starts after their battle and is Obi trying to protect Luke as a baby. Could be an epic storyline.

    That Dirty Black Bag. I guess you’d call this series a spaghetti western as it seemingly takes place in old West but all the actors from what I can tell are European. Not sure where it’s filmed. That said E1 was compelling enough I will give E2 at least a try.

    Gaming Wall St (HBOMax):

    2 part story on the GameStop/Wall Street/Robinhood debacle. Watched the first part tonight, I knew the generalities of the events, but this really lays it out for anyone who has no real understanding on how this short-selling/naked short-selling/etc works. Going into it, I sort of understood, now I really understand.

    Part 1 covers all that happened until the huge blowup. Obviously, Part 2 will walk the viewer through the end.

    Considering his addiction to the bottle during his career, along with the career choice itself…led a pretty long life. If I read correctly, the heart attacks were from complications for a hip surgery…

    A Perfect World – 2-part documentary about an online gamer that murdered his family and the gaming community that tried tons top him.

    Just watched Ep1 of From – a horror fiction series about residents in a small-town forced to hide in their homes at night and never leave. Quite ominous and foreboding. Hope the great start is maintained.

    Correct. I believe he developed a blood clot after his hip surgery and the clot is what they are saying caused the heart attacks.

    This one hit hard for me. Scott Hall and the NWO was getting huge right as I started getting into pro wrestling (7-8 years old). He has always been one of my favorites because of that (the Razor Ramon persona was before my time).

    I remember Scott Hall from his first days in wrestling in the AWA, teamed with Curt Hennig and tag-team champions. He became a great worker in the ring and with the mic as well. The whole WCW-NWO angle was sheer genius.

    The next Marvel Disney+ offering (after Moon Knight). Looks like a little Marvel meets John Hughes. As per rumors, looks like they are shifting up her powers.

    Seems silly that just because The Inhumans bombed that means she can’t be an Inhuman like she is in the comics. But, it doesn’t matter at this point. Once they did right by The Avengers they have license to do whatever they want now. Especially considering the Multiverse has been opened and any timeline, any world can have their own version of anyone.

    This one hit hard for me. Scott Hall and the NWO was getting huge right as I started getting into pro wrestling (7-8 years old). He has always been one of my favorites because of that (the Razor Ramon persona was before my time).


    I remember Scott Hall from his first days in wrestling in the AWA, teamed with Curt Hennig and tag-team champions. He became a great worker in the ring and with the mic as well. The whole WCW-NWO angle was sheer genius.

    Became familiar with him as Razor Ramon, and yes, the NWO thing (especially with Hulk) was genius. That was a game-changer.

    Really…?…I gotta resurrect this thread before we talk about how awesome the first ep of Moon Knight is?

    I’m not gonna say I’m the biggest Ethan Hawke fan but he is great casting for this role.

    I’m a big Oscar Isaac fan, had high expectations and he easily met them. This dude will win an Oscar at some point.

    Crazy good filmmaking so far, might actually watch this as it comes out which I don’t do anymore cause we don’t have to, any, more. right?

    Severance Episode 8 was just bonkers!

    Kudos to Ben Stiller for his part in this series, but also massive credit goes to those in charge of casting, set design, music, writing and cinematography. It’s been an absolute masterclass in constructing suspense, the main plot and subplots, character reveals, and drawing the viewer in and feeling vested in what happens next. Highly, highly recommend.

    Okay yeah the Moon Knight premiere was awesome. Definitely didn’t go with starting slow like the other Marvel series thus far. WHAM you’re right in the middle of it from the get go. Excited to see where this goes.

    While at my exercise place this afternoon I watched most of the feature “movie” about the ’79 Gophers’ road to the Frozen Four Championship. Even though I’ve seen it many times before it never gets old, especially today when it helped my hour on the treadmill fly by in no time!

    I knew going in that Season 4 of Killing Eve would be a “no one gets out alive” type final season but the last episode sucked anyway.

    I have mixed feelings about this one. It was decent and has a lot of potential but there is a lot still to flesh out to really hook the viewer IMHO. It could get frustrating pretty quickly if they don’t answer some questions, but they could fill in some of the gaps in a single episode. So I’ll definitely give it a few more episodes to see where it goes.

    I recorded that last night not knowing it was a Burns’ project. Now I’m doubly excited to watch it today.

    This was fascinating, so many facts about the Rwvokutionary War that you “kinda” knew, like that we wouldn’t have won our independence without France’s massive help but it almost bankrupted their country in the process. The war estranging him from his son was interesting. I also didn’t know that at the time of the Declaration of Inpendence Franklin was 66 and Thomas Jefferson was 32. The Continental Congress hashing out the Constitution in 1787 and all the crazy options they considered: Alexander Hamilton wanted a President who was elected for life (yikes!) and Franklin wanted a three person committee to head the executive branch. Also found it amusing that at the time they were working out the Constitution in Philly Franklin had debilitating gout and kidney stones so bad he had to be carried to Independence Hall every day and take opium tinctures.

    The final season of Queen Of The South has hit Netflix streaming. It was a USA Network show, but feels more like an FX show. Gritty, grimy, lots of cussing (in Spanish, so they can get away with a lot more :D ). I really love this series.

    I’ve read up on Franklin previously but that was about 25 years ago, and like you there were plenty of stories (including most of the ones you listed) that were new to me. I forgot or did not realize how much he was revered globally and basically a rock star of his era.

    He was about 30 years older than most of the other Founding Fathers and they didn’t really know him. They thought he was kinda odd but respected him cause he was the most famous American in the world. When he went to France he was a celebrity and they sold pictures of him everywhere. One of the French royalty resented it and put one of the pictures of him in the bottom of his chamber pot. I also didn’t realize he spent all of the Revolutionary War in France working them for funding and shipping supplies over to fight the war. They said he was the second most important person in the Revoltuionary War (Washington) and he was in France the whole time.

    I subscribed to the PBS Documentaries channel on Prime to watch the Country Music one. There are a lot of other good ones on there, but most are older and watch more like a high school movie from the 90s when I watched them. Been waiting for some new things to come out so glad to hear about this one, I will add it to my list. I had a collection of Who’s Who books when I was a kid and Ben Franklin was one of those books. I did a report on him in middle school too, using my mom’s set of encyclopedias!

    We finally caught up on Ozark in preparation for the last few episodes coming at the end of April. I have no clue really what to expect at this point

    My guess is everyone dies except for Jonah, he gets his own spin-off series where he uses a lawn care service as a cover and the show is called Mowzark.

    I honestly gave up on the series. I think I may have slept through the last couple episodes of the previous season and have no interest in starting the current season. Same thing happened with Better Call Saul. But I watched all of Breaking Bad and considering watching it all again.

    Stick with Saul. First part of the “last” season starts next week. The character Lalo…my God, he is so entertaining. Of course, along with the rest of the story.

    Anyone watching Outlander in Starz? This one is difficult for me to believe I am into due to the time travel aspect, but the historical portion and the storyline has me completely into it. The 2 main characters are great, the leading lady I just saw was Ken Miles’ wife in Ford v Ferrari (which I just watched this weekend). The leasing guy, Sam Heughan, is just awesome. He has a show about Scotland’s different food, drink, sports, culture, etc and he is funny. I would love to have a “wee dram of whisky” with him yet I don’t like whisky.
