    Just watched Episode 9 and have to agree. Can’t wait for finale. Weekly is more fulfilling than binging.

    Wife got me started on a BBC (James Cordon in 2000s), “Gavin and Stacey “. Pretty hilarious at times.

    I watched the first season of 'You.' I liked it. It was well done in a lot of ways. I don't really want to watch another season of it. I watched the first episode of the second season and I couldn't take it. It just seemed like a repeat and not as well done.

    The Wrong Mans is also quite delightful, if you haven't seen that yet.

    Several people I know swear by Schitt's Creek, but the episodes I've seen made it seem as little more than an Arrested Development knock-off. It does finally start turning better late into Season 2.

    Also - Black-ish is at its best when it makes you slightly uncomfortable.

    After seeing Mulaney on SNL, I checked out the Sack Lunch Bunch thing on Netflix (which also features David Byrne and Jake Gyllenhaal). I've always been fascinated by theater kids. Growing up (my sister was one), I never knew why some kids really wanted to be on stage and show off and open themselves to ridicule - just being a kid was tough enough, but why go out of your way in front of total strangers? That said - I enjoyed Zoom and the Electric Company. The show hits a lot of the same notes as those shows, but in an odder and funnier way. Theater kids always seem too damn precocious to begin with - having them sing and dance about their grandma's boyfriend or that they only eat noodles with a little bit of butter (in a very confident way) only makes it better.

    Season 3 of Snowfall is no Narcos: Mexico, but it is decent. Anytime you get Walter Mosley writing and Thomas Schlamme behind the camera - they tend to do decent work.

    From the last episode, it was pretty obvious it wasn't going to work, because their awkwardness with one another and how awful Peter's mom was. As someone who "enjoys" the show as a quasi-hatewatch, this season was especially bad - just an awful batch of contestants, a lead that never asserted control, the crazy mom that provides an example for why he was so bad at dealing with conflict, and at every turn just icky producer decisions like making sure the virgin contestant was the third fantasy suite night. I think the trainwreck nature of it all led to high ratings this year, but there has to be diminishing returns for this in the future, kind of similar to how pro wrestling finally had to go more PG at a certain point.

    If you like superheroes meets Riverdale, Ragnarok on Netflix is really good.

    I'm starting to get into the Mary Tyler Moore Show.

    Just finished what was a pretty decent episode with an actor Paul Sand.

    Looked familiar so went down a few rabbit holes and he had a sitcom for one season, not good.

    But Penny Marshall apparently was in it. This was a few years before Laverne & Shirley.
