    I enjoyed Palm Springs on Hulu. It has a definite Groundhog Day feel to it.

    JK Simmons, as usual, was outstanding in a small role.

    I haven't gotten around ot it yet, but I will probably watch The Old Guard tonight or tomorrow.

    Mngwa brought up Artemis Fowl. A close friend of mine and her 13-year-old really liked it, but so far their comments were the only positive ones I've heard.

    Simmons is an underrated, national treasure.

    Completely agree with this. I've also found some really great TV shows and they just lose something if you watch them dubbed. My latest obsession "Bordertown" just won't let me go. Ville Virtanen may be one of my all time favourite actors - and he speaks Finnish, Swedish AND English. Can Tom Cruise do that? ;)

    Somehow found myself down a rabbit hole that led to this 10-minute gem.

    Watched Suburra: Blood on Rome during the spring. Couldn't make it 10 minutes dubbed. It was almost cartoonish, like the WNEW kung fu cinema classics from my youth. Hearing the Italian makes it completely engrossing.

    A Facebook reference to Boyz N The Hood led me to watch Ricky's death scene, which led me to this -- the life story of Lloyd Avery II, the actor who played the guy who shot Ricky.
    Ho. Lee. Shit.
    This video is 10 minutes, so here's the short version: Avery grew up in a good family in Beverly Hills; got a string of small roles in the early 90s "Hood Film" genre and showed some promise as an actor; got frustrated when his career stalled and willingly moved to a dangerous part of L.A., where he basically joined the Bloods; lived the gangster life for a while and became more and more unstable; eventually got arrested for and convicted of murder; became a born again Christian in prison, buuuuttt got stuck with a cellmate who was a Satan worshiper; got into a fight to the death with the cellmate over religion, which he lost; the cellmate then hid Avery's body in the cell for almost a week, and it was finally discovered when he performed a Satanic ritual with the decomposing corpse.
    That's quite a ride.

    Check out the two seasons and done "Counterpart" - it was on Starz a couple years back. Simmons has never been better.

    I've never heard of this show. The premise sounds awesome. Thanks for the recommendation!
