    Saw maybe the most bizarre cooking show on Netflix called “Is It Cake?”

     

    Spoiler… yes.  It was cake.

    That Dirty Black Bag.  Description from Google:

    A story over eight long days describes the encounter and clash between two men: McCoy, an apparently incorruptible sheriff with a dark past, and Red Bill, a dirty, taciturn bounty killer trapped in a desire for vengeance that cannot be fulfilled.

    This is definitely not your daddy’s spaghetti western, but I’ve enjoyed quite a bit so far through 3 Eps.

    I have really enjoyed it too.  I had to dig out my old Moon Knight comic books to show my kids.  I have about 6 Moon Knight comics from the late 70’s and 80’s.  Unfortunately the comic books still aren’t worth that much.

    Tokyo Vice.

    Jake Adelstein, an American journalist, plugs into the Tokyo Vice police squad and descends into the neon underbelly of Tokyo.

    Stars Ansel Elgort from Baby Driver.  Highly recommend!

    Mayans MC:

    Just like Better Call Saul, did a 2-ep premiere.
    The first ep…meh, until the final minutes, and then it was HOLY HELL.

    The second ep…total setup ep, and JFC, this is gonna be intense.

    I didn’t realize it was already coming out but S2 of The Flight Attendant is now out.

    Also can’t recommend That Dirty Black Bag nor Tokyo Vice enough.

    I started watching the first episode of Saul last night and fell asleep.  I’ll try again to watch.  I hate these slow burn shows.  The intros on the episodes really drive me crazy.  Not sure why I got so invested in this show but I will begrudgingly watch to the end.  The show does have it’s moments but they are few and far between IMHO.

          I have tried to activate it and can’t get it to work.  When I sign in, it tells me I have to sign on an apple device or pc.  I don’t have any apple devices.  Is there a way around this?

            Oh, that’s annoying. I have an Apple device so I didn’t have to do anything special to activate, but this describes a workaround that sounds ridiculous. Don’t know if there’s something simpler.

                It is equal to Breaking Bad at this point, given you KNOW what the end result is; the journey is the intriguing part, for more than just Saul. It’s an amazing show.

                  That’s a high bar. Part of the first episode was reestablishing the tone and storylines going into the new season. The end of the first episode and all of the second it’s game on. This is the last season so shits gonna get real quick. There’s also a slow burn that all of the characters use with a controlled emotion and never trying to give to much away to their rivals. There’s a scene with Mike and Gustavo in the trailer that tests that…you can feel their struggle to control their emotions. Kim, Mike, Lalo, Gustavo and Varga are the narrative driving parts and this show is lucky that all 5 actors playing those parts are absolute rock stars.

                  I have not watched any trailer, nor searched anything about the last season. I wanted to go in blind. Lalo is friggin’ entertaining as all hell. Kim…I don’t know what to really make of her, even at this point. She can go either way (and yes, I’ve heard about the Ice Station Zebra theory). I know Nacho’s fate is the big question. He doesn’t appear in BB, but is mentioned once. Once.

                    I also went in blind. I have rewatched the last ep of the previous season occasionally on some of my fave series but I don’t think it helps in the end. These complicated series’ have to recap at the beginning and that 3 minute bump is usually plenty good.

                    I’ve re-watched series like these, I agree. Have to keep track of the moving parts, especially if you are watching multiple series. I’m ZONED in for everything I watch. I do not want to miss ONE detail. The recaps just bring up what you may have forgotten about, so you know what the ep is going to entail. It’s a spoiler of sorts. I skip all that.

                        Meltdown (Netflix streaming) 4 part series on the Three Mile Island nuclear meltdown. Pre-Chernobyl. The first 3 eps are very good, they…really show the good, the bad, and the ugly. Obv there is some bias against nuclear power, and between this, and the Chernobyl HBO series (based on fact) and the “Midnight In Chernobyl” book (which is an EXCELLENT in-depth, very in-depth read)…one constant: bottom line. That’s all that matters. :(

                        Finished it up tonight, the main whistleblower still proclaims that nuclear power is a good source of energy (and I tend to agree). But, no *bleepin’* shortcuts, you must do it right, or guess what? This happens. It’s not a tainted river or lake, people friggin’ die like crazy, and most likely, slow-roll/long-term.

                        I’ve just started S1 of Tehran about a Mossad agent who infiltrates Tehran under a false identity to help destroy a nuclear reactor.  I don’t know how much she’s involved but says Glenn Close is in the series as is Shaun Toub who was the scientist in the cave in Iron Man and played Majid Javadi in Homeland among other roles.  E1 has been very intriguing and I will continue for now.  S2 has had 4 episodes so far.

                        The theme was “dia de los Muertos” of sorts, the day the MCs honored their lost brothers. And boy, did it deliver on the theme of life and death. IMO, this series has surpassed SOA, despite it being a spinoff.

                        Related: I know some have said that Better Call Saul has done that with Breaking Bad, and I don’t agree…at this point. It’s on par, though. </span>

                        This season is building up to a big bang at some point within the MC.  The one thing that doesn’t set right with me though is the thought that Chibs greenlit a war.  I get why he would but I thought he would follow the thinking of Jax to keep a level of peace rather than stir up a war.

                        If it was just the Sons’ death, and the Mayans came forward to say what happened, that’d be one thing, but put into a barrel? That’s major disrespect. I think that was the key in the decision.

                          The Man Who Fell To Earth has gotten weird.  Not unwatchable weird but it’s out there.

                          Tehran S1 has been fantastic and I highly recommend.

                          Good episode. Wondering about the Galindo storyline…I think Adelita storyline is done with, which is a plus, it served its purpose, but, who knows? Angel’s storyline, have NO clue where that’s going, other than the thing with Letty, WTF? And EZ/Marcus…this is really going to get interesting with that combo. Gilly and Hank storyline…they are about to blow up. I just don’t know how.

                          I hope that was cryptic enough.

                          Don’t forget about the Emily storyline, there have only been tidbits but then she reached out.

                          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. https://youtu.be/m9EX0f6V11Y

                          And the next MCU Disney+ television series (starting August 17) trailer is out: https://youtu.be/gim2kprjL50

                          I think the other creator/writer of Mayans is trying to end most, if not all, the Sutter storylines, for the most part, to concentrate on just the Mayans. In a series like this, viewers get kind of ripped off when it’s written away with a line of dialogue (SPOILER ALERT: like how Galindo is kinda mostly gone). Also see: the Adelita storyline that I mentioned.

                          I, for one, wouldn’t be upset if the Galindo storyline minus Emily would go away.  There is plenty of storylines going on without the former cartel boss.  Though I imagine that with Nestor now with Alvarez as a prospect that I see a meeting between those three coming up on the horizon.

                          As far as why I don’t mind the Emily storyline is for the same reason I liked the Jax/Tara storyline.  I’ll admit I’m a sucker for the lead characters to find some happiness and I think that Emily and EZ have something that draws them together.  I think it will have a similar tragic ending like Tara though.

                          Meltdown: Three Mile Island.  Very well done (not as dramatic as Chernobyl for obvious reasons) but there was a lot to learn about this event that I either didn’t pick upon as an 11 year-old or was never revealed at the time.  A lot of reasons to be angry over it as well that I won’t get into here.

                            A tad. The Bishop storyline gets curiouser and curiouser.

                            In the “whoa” moment, I didn’t expect Player A do to what was done. I expected Player B to do that. That was…wow.

                            And with Angel…in a sense, his lifespan is short, but in a series like this, he’s probably gonna last throughout. He’s just a trainwreck.

                            I’ll just say that he tries pushing the buttons on EVERY group/cause/etc, as he has always done. I thought the show was hilarious, but YMMV.

                              He’s one of those people who has the ability to honestly call everyone out on their BS. Even on Afterlife. Some people just see the world through a different lens.

                                He’s one of those people who has the ability to honestly call everyone out on their BS. Even on Afterlife. Some people just see the world through a different lens.

                                I’m convinced he’s brilliant because people come after him from all positions of every spectrum and he clowns every single one of them every single time. Extremely impressive.

                                  He also seems to have no interest in being in the public eye or really promoting himself.  He just goes “enough of you maroons, here’s the deal…”

                                  So…Mayans was a little intense.

                                  A tad. The Bishop storyline gets curiouser and curiouser.

                                  In the “whoa” moment, I didn’t expect Player A do to what was done. I expected Player B to do that. That was…wow.

                                  And with Angel…in a sense, his lifespan is short, but in a series like this, he’s probably gonna last throughout. He’s just a trainwreck.

                                  Agree with all of that.

                                  Tehran S1 was fantastic, but since they continued the same storyline I’m really hoping they don’t muff it up in S2.

                                    so much exposition

                                    Flea has been in a few movies before. I was actually quite happy he was in here. A “simple pleasure” if you will. Not a good actor, but it’s fun to see him in stuff.

                                    And Part 3. Also, The Chase (marginal movie with Kristy Swanson/Charlie Sheen), Baby Driver, and Big Lebowski. Some other ones I haven’t seen.

                                    Obi-Wan was good.  Also watched the first episode of Stranger Things.  I don’t know… not really doing it for me.  Maybe I’m just getting bored with the series or its been too long that I forgot about it, but it just didn’t grab me this time.  I’ll probably still finish the season so I hope the cliff hangers from episode one goes somewhere cool.

                                    You got that right. It’s interesting on how EZ’s path and Angel’s path have kind of been reversed…

                                    I thought S4 of Stranger Things has been quite good so far.  It’s not free of criticism but it has all the charm, some decent character development and I feel like they’ve tried to keep it from going stale without jumping the shark.

                                    I’ve watched 3 of 6 episodes so far of Pistol – a biographical series based upon the memoirs of Steve Jones who was one of the founding members of the Sex Pistols.  Based upon what I know of the band’s history much of what has been portrayed has been spot on.  Some the actors are dead ringers and I love the fact they’re not using originally recorded music and singing for the musical bits.

                                    Obi-Wan continues to impress. I was mistaken in that they were Fri releases. Nope. Just the debut. Wed releases. Now I am really pumped at Wed double-features of Obi and Mayans. :)

                                    Side note, no spoiler. Whoever casted the girl who plays Leia in Obi needs to get promoted. That little girl is PERFECT for the role.

                                    Okay, I do have one little bitch about Obi-Wan.  I get he is a broken shell of himself after the events in Revenge of the Sith thinking he killed Anakin.  If we end up getting five episodes of Obi-Wan acting like a little bitch like Luke in Episodes 4 and 5 I am going to be pissed.  Obi-Wan was a top 5 Jedi of all time and now I think he and CP3O may be equals, I’m exaggerating but that’s my point.  Anyway, Obi-Wan’s reconnection with the force better be epic.

                                    So, as I watch Stranger Things a thought occurs to me. Is David Harbour now type cast? Will he ever get another part where he isn’t in a Russian prison?

                                    We all know how Obi-Wan ends up. So, to me, the pain is part of the process. The payoff should be equal to how much he suffers in these eps.

                                    That Damn Michael Che.  Comedy sketch show with multiple guest comics and it’s been hilarious.

                                    I really enjoyed The Lincoln Lawyer on Netflix.  I found the Michael Haller character much better done on this show that in the movie played by Matthew McConaughey.
