    I’m almost finished with season 1 of Ozark. I’ve really only stuck with it because of the great things I’ve heard about season 3.

    I stopped in the middle of season two of Ozark and just haven't felt like taking it back up.

    I loved Ozark, especially Season 3. Push through 2, its worth it.

    Re-watching Black Sails, the pirate series in STARZ. It’s the prequel to Treasure Island. Going to read RL Stevenson’s Treasure Island next. Love this series, the acting and writing are exemplary. British cast. Many of the characters are actual real life people. Ann Bonny, Jack Rackham, Charles Vane, Edward “Blackbeard” Teach, Ben Hornigold, Woodes Rogers. It’s got everything: Adult Themes, violence, nudity, sex, politcics,

    Season 1 was good because they based the arc on Johnny's backstory. Yes it was campy at times but the "good" won the day by far.

    Season 2 was terrible.

    It hasn't been normal TV, but I thought this might be a good place for this: The television programming today concerning the anniversary of the 9/11/2001 attacks has been nothing short of mesmerizing. Still. 19 years later. Anyone else experience any of it that way today?

    The History Channel, in particular, is has been loaded with virtually can't-look-away material. Just got done with "9/11: The Pentagon." And right now, there's a documentary on regarding what went on inside Air Force One over the course of the day. Horrible, fascinating, and even exhilarating, too, in terms of the unified emotions of the time.

    Don’t know about terrible, but season 1 was definitely much better. The jarring part to me was the super dark turn in the last episode. Changed the mood of the whole thing.

    We have been watching Five Bedrooms on Peacock. Aussie show about 5 singles who buy a house together. Nothing too deep but a pleasant enough watch.

    Just caught the first episode of Raised By Wolves on HBOMax, Ridley Scott directed sci-fi show. Episode really took off in the final 20 minutes. Will continue on.

    First few episodes of Lovecraft County. Didn’t know a thing about it going in. Got hooked at the end of the first episode. Really enjoying it so far. Great cast.

    I am intrigued! Any shows you can compare it to? I'm always looking for something lighter that can be watched with the wife. (Past examples of shows she's liked - Friends, Happy Endings, How I Met Your Mother, Santa Clarita Diet, The Good Place, etc.)

    It’s more age diverse than Friends and more dramatic than most of these show, although only slightly (No laugh track and 45 minute episodes). Probably a little like Happy Endings.
