    We already have Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+. We're not adding any more.

    I had time to at least start Discovery while we had the free trial of CBS All-Access, but I didn't feel like rushing through it when I knew I wasn't keeping the service. It's bad enough I have to bail on The Orville.

    Shows I binge-watched last week:

    "Trailer Park Boys." Pretty funny but it starts jumping the shark in season 5 or so.

    "Bad Blood." Kim Coates is great.

    Watching "The Politician" on Netflix - reminds me more of Scream Queens than anything else. Some of Murphy's stuff really finds a way to say something within the fluff - this one really doesn't.

    Fantastic theme though - Surfjan Stevens "Chicago"

    I learned to appreciate Coates when he was on Sons of Anarchy. I always thought the idea with his character was to have Tig make the most outlandish choice possible at every turn and he sold it.

    Chicago: The Terry Kath Experience

    Watched it on Amazon Prime. Documentary on the extraordinary guitar player done by his daughter. Chicago is my favorite band and this was a very enlightening documentary. Man, Caribou Ranch must have been a fantastic place.

    It was very well done. She even got Peter Cetera to participate!

    There is a "Chicago" segment in the David Foster doc on Netflix - basically Foster admitted he was a jerk excluding horns and working pretty much exclusively with Cetera - though he adds that the current line-up still tours on the backs of 16, 17, and 18.

    There was a comedian once told Cetera to fuck off for ruining one of his favorite bands.

    Can’t remember who said it.

    It wasn't me, but I wish it was. Meanwhile, his brother (at least a couple of years ago) was touring as the front for a Chicago cover band. I think they called themselves The Chicago Experience. His name is Kenny Cetera.

    I continue to think that CBS really has blown it by not having Star Trek: Picard on regular mainstream TV. There is a hungry audience for it, and it would've been a legitimate hit -- far more so than has occurred via streaming. I know streaming is growing more common and accepted, but to me, it still seems akin to newspapers putting their best work, that everyone should and would be interested in, behind pay walls. And we know how that has worked out. It just seems dumb, and like bad business.
