    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.

    I am looking forward to watching this.

    It’s been watchable for me, but I am disappointed in the script. There are a lot of cheesy lines.

    I do like that they move things along quickly.

      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.

      I thought she was a bit much. Not a fan of the Grand Inquisitor either.

      The Boys S3 E1-3 came out on Friday. If you haven’t watched this series, STRONG recommend from me. Prime streaming.

      Yeah, she is a bit much. I get that an adult Leia that would say “I recognized the foul stench when I was brought aboard” needs to be a snarky/spunky person and that would develop at a younger age, but…just too much for 10yo (who looks more like a 7yo) Leia, in my opinion.

      I agree with you about the “Grand Inquisitor” as well. I get that there needs to be a main evil character but we already have Darth Vader for this series. Do we really need 3 others for each series that’s done? And on that note, there’s also something off-putting to me about naming a strong female character played by a black woman “3rd Sister”.

      All that said, I am still enjoying this series so far.

        Well I guess they weren’t in love with the that particular Grand Inquisitor character either.

        The brother/sister references are names given to the Inquisitor group to show unity, there’s nothing racial about it. I like the Third Sister character and Darth Vader always seems to have a Lieutenant who is loyal but also trying to wedge their own motives in.

        ep3 was great, the Vader scenes are pretty awesome, will watch 4 later today

        The Grand Inquisitor is a token bad guy. Meh.
        Third Sister is necessary.

        As for Leia, this is how she has always been, hence how she came to be. No issue with that. “Daughter” of a Senator. Privileged, so to speak.

        Mayans:
        Some things have started to change…
        Bishop has a sense of purpose, The Reyes brothers continue on their paths, much different than S1. Mini-Sister still kinda freaks me out, I’ll be honest. The Galindo line is very intriguing, and I mean every branch of it. Curious about the Coco line, though.

          Obi-Wan…it was nice to see a little of the old Obi-Wan.

          Mayans: A lot of storylines going on.  It will be interesting to see how this Galindo storyline evolves especially since Alvarez is going the way of Jax it seems.

          Stay Sweet: Pray And Obey (Netflix Streaming):
          Documentary (4 parts, about 45 min long for each part) examining the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints.

          Ok, so, basic Mormonism wasn’t enough? They went MORE hardcore? …alright…This is twisted. I was going to marathon the entire 4pt series last night, and it was a bit heavy to handle. It’s f*ing sick. Absolutely disgusting how this “church” works.

          Watched the first episode of Ms. Marvel this weekend. I’m intrigued.  Really liked some of the easter eggs they threw in during episode 1. They did change up her powers a bit from her comic book powers from what I can tell, but I’m guessing that’s because they wanted it to flow better for upcoming projects where she’ll be sharing the screen with other heroes.

          The Chestnut Man – 6-part Danish series on Netflix about two newly united detectives hunt a killer that may be also linked to the abduction of a prominent politician’s child.  Very well done and highly recommend.

          I’d put IV up there…I mean, at least III was COMICALLY bad, and great to watch in 3B (c) Bob/Doug Mackenzie. The drunk Superman scene alone was hysterical.

          Season finale of Mayans is this week. I get access to the episode when I’m somewhere west of Ontonagon MI. There IS massive WiFi, but…do I push it off until I get back? Or do I give in and plug in to watch it? ARGH.

          (FTR, my friends and I are in agreement, we will NOT miss the new ep of Obi; they are not into the Mayans, though).

              Sherwood on BBC:

              Two shocking and unexpected murders shatter an already fractured community leading to one of the largest manhunts in British history while threatening to inflame historic divisions sparked during the Miners’ Strike three decades before.

              Ep 1 was very gripping and has me locked in.  Based on true events from the early 80’s and written by someone that grew up in their shadow.  Very BBC-ish in style and delivery and will only have 6 episodes which is a plus.

              [collapse]

              in the opening scene after the credits. I might have let out a little *squee!* :D

              Have not seen the new Obi, as when my friends and I wanted to watch it on Wed, since we were just going to chill at the resort anyway, the whole area’s internet was out. :( So that’ll be tomorrow. I do know the season finale this week is something like an hour and a half. *shockface*

                  I did watch the new Obi, finally. Good ep. Tomorrow night should be fun. ALSO saw that S2 is up in the air. Apparently they wrote S1 as a closed end story. :ddown:   We’ll see, though. I think it’s a marketing ploy to see the fan poutrage factor, and they’ll go from there.

                  Started watching “The Old Man” this evening on Hulu, based on the 2017 novel of the same name by Thomas Perry. Jeff Bridges and John Lithgow are terrific, the video is nicely shot, not like watching someone having a seizure while holding the cameras and best of all, I can actually hear well written dialogue that isn’t obliterated by a 120 decibel soundtrack. And I love Chase’s (Bridges) dogs. Good stuff.

                    Sean Hayes killing it hosting Kimmel, guaranteed he gets his own show.

                    Cannot believe after the abomination that was S3 that Westworld has made a S4.

                    Dark Winds.  6-part series that takes place in Navajo Nation in 1971 New Mexico.  A murder mystery thriller based upon the book that also inspired the 2002 film Skinwalkers.  E1 was very compelling and hopefully the momentum carries through.

                      Zahn McClarnon has been awesome as a supporting actor, hopefully he gets a chance to shine in this.

                       

                      also, looks like they already renewed it for a second season next year before it even aired?

                      woah! Zahn McClarnon, Robert Redford and George RR Martin (plus others) are the producers. I’m starting it right now!

                      No discussion on the E60 Unrivaled episode?  Excellent.  So many memories.

                        That was great. Loved it. I don’t even have a criticism really
