    I was watching Dr 90210. I seem to have a thing for shows about
    plastic surgery. Man, the litres of fat they suck of these women.

    MY 2 FAVORITE GENRES ARE COMEDY AND SCI-FI, BUT I HATE MOST COMEDIES AND SCI FI (theyre rarely done well )

    heres some recommendations. not necessarily my favorites, but maybe ones you havent seen.
    i will do a comedy one or another sci-fi one in a few days if people like.

    ==========================================================================
    "THE OUTSIDER" (HBO MAX)

    - 10 episode miniseries from Stephen King
    - great acting and a resolved end,
    - its a slow burn/suspense
    - 50% supernatural 50% crime thriller

    QUITE GOOD = 7.5/8 outta 10.

    WATCH IT IF YOU LIKE- 11.22.63
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "THE EXPANSE" (AMAZON PRIME- 5 seasons)

    - still runnning
    - the first few episodes were tough sledding for me and i wasnt a fan
    - its a film noir detective story in space (if you want rubber headed aliens, youll be disappointed)
    - its become one of my favorite shows, one of the best running sci-fi show off the top of my head

    8.5/10= IF YOUVE BEEN AVOIDING IT, YER ONLY HURTING YOU

    WATCH IT IF YOU LIKE= "ASCENSION"
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "LOVECRAFT COUNTRY" (HBO MAX- 1 season)

    - magic, monsters and white guilt
    - supernatural story about HP Lovecraft fiction themes
    - some episodes are much better than others
    - it bothered me to see "Omar" from "The Wire in such an unlikable role.
    - if you like movie monsters, this has some cool ones.

    6.5/10= DECENT, BUT NOT MUCH MORE

    WATCH IT IF YOU LIKE= LIKE IF 2019 WATCHMEN HAD A BABY W WAYWARD PINES
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "LEGION" (HULU- 3 Seasons)

    - canceled but concluded
    - superhero show about a Marvel mutant youve never heard of
    - if you liked the Dream Sequence in The Big LeBowski, youll dig the creativity.
    - some episodes drag, some are amazing.
    - dude from "The Guest" is more than just a bootleg Paul Walker- he can act.

    7.5/10= A WEIRD BUT WORTHWHILE SHOW

    WATCH IF YOU LIKE= Tom Pettys "Wont Back Down" video

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "DOOM PATROL" (HBO MAX 2 SEASONS)

    - still running, Season 3 confirmed. Ive only seen Season 1
    - think "The Boys", with a less attractive cast. (if you like The Boys raunchy humor, def consider checking this out).
    - DC Comics superhero misfit team
    - raunchy, tacky and obnoxious, but after a few episodes i found myself invested.
    - starring Jeremy Irons and Encino man.

    7.0/10= WILL UPDATE AFTER I WATCH SEASON 2.

    WATCH IT IF YOU LIKE= "THE BOYS"
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    12 MONKEYS (HULU- 4 SEASONS)

    - a reimagining of the classic film starring the stunt double from Joe Dirt.
    - i avoided this forever, but was shocked how good the show was.

    8.75/10= BETTER THAN THE EXPANSE. BARELY.

    WATCH IT IF YOU LIKE= "CONTINUUM" (the 4 season Canadian show)

    It looks like they didn't want to invest some money in the trailer. It gives me bad feeling about the production value of the actual show if they use this approach with the trailer. Just sayin'

    Just started Archer season 11. So far 2 eps in it’s pretty good. Season 10 was so boring I quit after 3 episodes in.
    Season 5 & 7 are prolly my favorites.

    The dreamscape stuff was so mixed.
    The new season I felt is a return to form.
