I'm surprised that no one I know has ever mentioned it because it's really similar to Breaking Bad and not far off in terms of quality. I highly recommend it with a little caveat...there are 4 seasons, but it got cancelled before all of the plot points could be properly wrapped up.
For what it's worth. my wife and I watched that show and really enjoyed it. The plot can get a bit redundant and I think it was actually kind of the right call to cancel it unless they had an awesome gear shift in the tank, but I don't think it wore out its welcome. Whole thing was really fun. It was cool to see Retta doing something very different. She was pretty great on it. Really good show.
Lately our tv lives have been waiting for new Ted Lassos, Foundations, What We Do in the Shadows and Only Murders in the Buildings. but in that wait we decided to try Morning Show and I like it much more than I guessed. I did not know Jenifer Aniston had that gear. Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell are fantastic as always, and I love that basically everyone else is "oh yeah, that actor/ess from that thing." Also was pretty blown away by the pilot and then the credits roll and Mimi Lederer pops up and oh shit, of course it was. We're a few in and it's really good. Can't wait to see how it all plays out.
Making It! My wife and I finally remembered that Season 3 had happened and we tore through it in like 2 days, then decided to watch Seasons 1 and 2. Got through the whole show in less than a week. That show just makes me so crazy happy for so many different reasons. Easily my favorite reality show of all time.
I'm not reading the thread yet because we still have a few episodes to go, but I just started it last week and I'm so glad that I did. I was going to take a pass because the build up was so huge that I didn't think it was possible that I wouldn't be completely disappointed, but holy shit. I'm fucking in love with this show. Talk about heart and great characters, and wonderful, super clever writing. It seems that Lawrence has given us his Parks and Rec and it's extremely formidable.
Anyhoo. I'm so happy I got a couple of pushes to give it a shot. Thanks Dan Feinberg and my wife's physical therapist.

I'm into this idea. Even in talking about what has happened it's tough, not wanting to blow anything. The streaming era is particularly rough for this sort of thing.
I'm really digging it. I'm not sure if Steve Martin has had a hand in writing it, but that sort of super dry, goofy thing of his has really well utilized. That first scene with him on the street where we meet his character is just so Steve Martin. I loved it. I also liked seeing Martin Short have an actually kind of emotionally complicated and sincere scene in his arc. Story has my grabbed. I'm drawn in by the personalities. I've never seen Selena Gomez in anything, but I like her here. They all have great chemistry. I'm just really digging it. Can't wait for #5. I don't think they hit until tomorrow here, but I'm going to check. Thanks for the heads up, Cory.
