    He may be snafu to you but he will always be Akman Ra to me...#nightofthemuseum

    edit: not-so-fun fact. People complained about whitewashing the role having no idea Rami was Egyptian...

    He is so good as Snafu though. You HAVE to read “With the Old Breed” which is Eugene Sledges book. The main character with Snafu. It’s a top 10 autobiography for me. I read it in one sitting

    Taste the Nation, which is Padma Lakshmi's new show.  She travels across the US and talks with restaurant owners/chefs etc. about their food and cooks with them.  I'm only on episode 2 but it's very much highlighting the history of food in the US and the immigrants who brought their food and culture to the states.  It's really, really good and I'd recommend it.

  • Kingdom on Netflix, just finished season 2. Great stuff. And great hats for sure.

    I finally finished I Know This Much Is True. I was really looking forward to this one, as I love Ruffalo and the director of the episodes (Derek Cianfrance) has done some quality stuff ("The Place Beyond the Pines, Blue Valentine, etc). This is all quality as well. But it is also one of the most bleak things I've seen. There is no glimmer of hope or happiness until perhaps the last moments of the finale. But even that doesn't really paint a very happy picture of the future. I say all that to warn people that might be feeling on the edge of things...go watch The Floor Is Lava on Netflix or something. Steer clear of this one.

    Man, let's breathe some life back into these boards!  Where the BM Fam at?!

    This past weekend we binged-out the rest of Kingdom Season 2.  Pretty much 100% chance for a Season 3.  We loved it.  Looks like this also might spark a little Zombie-fest going, 'cause my wife just received also last weekend a Pontypool Blueray/DVD she ordered.

  • Started my dark run. Luckily I don't need the subtitles.

  • Space Force was definitely worth the time. If anyone was curious, but hasn't tried it out yet I found it to be more or less what I hoped it would be and that's pretty darn good. I doubt I'll feel the need to revisit it a bunch of times, but I'm glad I gave it a spin and will probably go back for seconds at some point.

    Also, I think I'm overdue for my periodic PSA. Watch Dirk Gently! It's one of the best shows ever.

    I’m watching Scrubs. I’m still in the corona-mode of just wanting old sitcoms to watch before bed and this is what I’m down to. I was never a huge fan when it was on, though I did watch a fair bit of it, and it doesn’t really hold up. There are some really dated jokes and it gets incredibly schmaltzy a lot. Also there’s something about Zach Braff that makes me just screw my face up. But I’m halfway through S4 and it has enough amusing/bearable moments that I will see it through.

    Background-binging the Rifftrax channel on Pluto TV, to see what all the fuss is about.  I tuned in just in time to watch their live "Carnival of Lost Souls" event from 2017 and just left it on.  Pretty funny so far.  :)
  • fidozfidoz Houston
    I'm now bingeing 3 shows. The Larry Sanders Show, Search Party, The Sopranos. Not to mention tons of movies.

    Finished Dark last week. Pretty satisfied with how that wrapped up.

    Working through season two of Legion now, after A.Ron talked it up on a recent podcast and I had stopped after season one. Almost done with the second season and I am loving it. Quite the singular take on a small part of the X-Men mythos, at least on screen.

    Legion ended pretty well. I say goodbye to it with fondness.

    I watched the first season of Homecoming, which went nice and quickly given its half hour episodes. Very good season, with its own distinct style thanks to Sam Esmail's vision. Not planning to watch the second season, since he wasn't involved and it hasn't received very good reviews.

    Now, at very very long last, I am jumping into Mad Men. Unfortunately, my timing is kind of rotten as Mad Men's years-long home on Netflix recently ended and shifted over to Amazon's IMDbTV. On one hand, IMDbTV is free. On the other, I already have Netflix and Prime, anyway. And IMDbTV is ad-supported, so I could have joined the millions who watched Mad Men on Netflix over the years and not had to see commercials, particularly the same five commercials repeatedly inserted randomly throughout the episodes instead of the show's old natural ad breaks. But I guess that's what I get for procrastinating for 13 years. Shame Amazon didn't stick it on Prime. 

    In any case, 10 episodes in and I'm enjoying it. It'll be good to fill this particular Prestige TV gap.

    AMC is going to re-air the series starting early fall! :)

    I'm glad you mentioned Homecoming because I completely forgot about that show and now that you brought it up I realized there's a second season I need to watch.

    I loved this book so much! And because I read the book I have been avoiding watching-which is too bad because I love Ruffalo as well. If this miserable anxiety/depression fog ever starts to lift I'll dive right in to the misery pool.

    What We Do In The Shadows!  I finally started the first season last night, & made it through 2 eps before I had to get to sleep.  It’s my weekend binge this weekend though!

    AP Bio. I watched the first couple of episodes when it first started and I was kind of ehhhh, but I had finished Scrubs and needed something else for my bedtime binge so I gave it another go. It’s grown on me - I’m almost finished S2 now and it’s quite endearing in an odd way. Jack Griffin is basically Dennis without the constant threat of sexual assault. The kids are great; Heather is especially hilarious (but what happened to Devin and Colin???). It’s not breaking any new ground but it’s a fun watch.

    Life in Pieces is freakin hysterical. No one i know is talking about it so not sure why I decided to watch. But so glad I did. And who doesn’t need a laugh these days.

    I watched that a few months ago and I really liked it. Zoë Lister Jones and Dan Bakkedahl in particular are great, but the whole cast is good. I was bummed when I watched it all and then found out it had been cancelled and there wouldn’t be anymore.

    TNG - I never watched it straight through, always catching episodes randomly.

    and 

    The Prisoner.  If this hasn't been a Bald Move commission, it really should be.  I mean, WTF?  For the 1960s?  On network television?  Whoo boy.

  • Succession, which to my knowledge is a Bald Move fans' version of "PLAY FREEBIRD!"

    I've been surprised by how damn funny it is and episodes 5/6 (Thanksgiving/board meeting episodes) were incredible.

    Wife and I are deep into Dark right now.  We tried a few years ago but got interrupted somehow. Now we can't pull away.  We started a couple of weeks ago and last night we just finished the premiere episode of Season 3.  All I have to say about that is "Bizzarro I love you! Bizzarro I love you!"  



    *side note, we've been oohing and awwing at all things German while watching and we've started saying "Ooh so SEVERE!" in a heavy German accent when something hits our eye.  Like "ooh her outfit! She is so severe!" "ooh that hotel is so severe! ooh that bedroom is so severe!"

  • Just finished Deadwind on Netflix. Scandinavian (specifically Finnish) detective drama with strong female protagonist. I grew up in a town of mostly Finns, and just like in the show they are a very reserved people.

    Kingdom (2014-17)

    Not the Korean zombie show. It’s a show about an MMA family with some B+ actors. Don’t really watch UFC fights and More of a lover than fighter but this was pretty good. Ran through the 3 Seasons in 2 days. It has a bit too much soap opera for me. But it was pretty enjoyable. Not sure I’d recommend it simply cuz it only lasted 3 Seasons and the soapy opera.

    What have you thought and how far in are you?

    I also am jumping back in and rewatching Mad Men (I am liking it even more the second time around) after a Sopranos rewatch (probably a 5th or 6th rewatch in total for me) not that long ago. I may follow all of this up with a Boardwalk Empire rewatch (this will just be my first rewatch, but I loved how quiet the show was juxtaposed with the gangland violence out of the blue), just to put a cork on the Soprano's alum series.
