    I'm near the end of season 1 and it has definitely gone into over the top ridiculous territory. It's still pretty entertaining though.

    Anyone catch this season of Curb or the final season of Money Heist on Netflix? My two favorite shows ever. Curb just had it's finale this past Sunday, but this season peaked in the third episode.

    Designated Survivor was on ABC. Didn't know it continued on Netflix.

    You probably thought Jack Bauer got promoted to Pres.

    Just watched the first season of The Righteous Gemstones. Underrated comedy, imo.

    That would've probably been an improvement for the show . . . <45>

    Started watching Yellowstone today. This show seems really special. Very much enjoying it, though I’ve only just got the concept down

    It's a soap on a ranch, but I really like it. Many good acting performances.

    I’m moving through at a pretty good clip. Hitting the balance for me right now with keeping me interested and also keeping her interested. Good amount of action but still some drama and scandalous shit which she’s all about.

    First season was good.
    Second season is picking up and the characters are really really strong.

    Would definitely say it’s worth getting into.

    I also love the "riding porn" (like breaking and sliding). These people are masters of their trade and the horses they ride are beautiful.

    Another show I suggest: Yellowjackets.

    Finished quite a few series last year.

    Money Heist S5: 4/5 – I thought it finished in a fun way. Movie was all over the place and S1 was far and away the best, but overall, an enjoyable experience.

    Hanna S3: 3.5/5 – Again, solid ending to a fun series. It suffers the same fate as Money Heist in that the choices and situations they’re in are completely ridiculous. However, it doesn’t have the “why the hell would you do that!” moments like MH.

    Emily in Pars S2: 2/5 - You give some and you take some. My GF had me sit through this and it was meh all the way through. Maybe a laugh here or there, but it was bland, boring, and somewhat insulting.

    Hellbound S1: 3/5 – Fun concept but they left too much to the imagination. I get that they wanted to build their characters first, however, shedding a light on the elephant in the room would have been most welcomed and would have built more anticipation.

    Midnight Mass S1: 3/5 – Again, I really wish hey would have provided some more backstory on our buddy’s little friend, but they held that from us. The show was preachy and tried to get its point across with 20-minute monologues. It did have some fun scares and creepy moments, but the talking got in the way.

    Squid Game S1: 4.5/5 – Not much to be said here. Fantastic show that has a great first episode. People I know who don’t like their shows on the violent side all watched this one. It says something.

    Our Boys S1: 3.5/5 – Story about a Palestinian boy who was kidnapped and murdered by Israeli fundamentalists. The show had some excellent acting and a few of the actors resembled their real life counterparts really well. The show dragged on for too long IMO and could have been condensed. Overall, good story and great acting.

    Somos S1: 3.5/5 – Again, this one could have been trimmed down. It’s about the unfortunate massacre perpetrated by the Zetas that happened in a Mexican Border town. Good acting and interesting side story’s, but the length of the series means theres a chance you won’t be as invested when the even happens.

    Raised by Wolves S1: 3.5/5 – It was ok for a Sci-Fi series. The land they’re on made it somewhat bleak and boring to look at but the relationships between the droids and the humans really helped to keep my interest. The worst part was the CGI at the end of the final episode. That was terrible.

    Always Sunny S13: - 3.5/5 - It was fun and had some funny moments. It was great to see the team back together.

    MacGruber S1: 5/5 - Either you like the comedy or you don't. I thought the 2010 movie was hilarious with so many quotable moments and I was happy to see they brought that same energy.

    There’s probably more, but these are just the ones off the top of my head.

    Most Anticipated in 2022:
    LOTR
    Gomorrah S5
    Gangs of London S2
    Righteous Gemstones S2
    Sandman
    Stranger Things
    Ozark
    Obi-Wan
    The Boys S3

    I think I'm going to wait till it finishes. I like that it's highly un PC (apparently). and is HUGE.

    There was only a year between the 1st & 2nd Seasons, and a somewhat noticable gap in quality.

    S1 was awesome. S2 was just 'great.'

    Hopefully the 2 year gap between S2 & S3 will bring it back to S1's awesomeness.

    Finished binging Strike Back S1 digital and no extras in digital copy. Very good show, very good duo. Might have to buy the rest of the seasons of these two. Didn't like the replacement cast.
