I enjoyed the first two episodes of "Monarch: Legacy of Monsters" on Apple+. I'm not into Kaiju films anymore and thought all the ones they've released since 2014's Kong:Skull Island started out okay then got progressively worse.

In the first two episodes, Monarch is developing into more of a thriller with monsters as the backstory rather than being straight up monster movie.


Yeah. It's about a family dilemma. The wayward father is interesting.

The new season of Fargo started on FX/Hulu. 2 episodes are available. I watched the 1st and definitely got me hooked. It stars Ted Lasso’s Juno Temple sporting a thick Minnesota accent, and John Hamm, who had minimal screen time in episode 1. Starting episode 2 at the gym shortly.

Fargo is fine. I used to consistently have it in my top 10 every year there was a new season. But this new season isn't really exciting me to that level. Still a good show thouhg.

Slow Horses is the best thing on TV right now IMO.

I tried getting into Slow Horses and gave up after 30min a while back. I’ll give it another shot.

HBO Max has a new series named Bookie staring Sebastian Maniscalco. He plays a sports bookie in Los Angeles. Two episodes are out so far, pretty funny, it seems like they actually put some work in to writing the jokes.

It may not be your type of show. It’s an espionage show. So there’s more dialogue than action. I do think the Gary Oldman’s acting is high quality.

Finally began watching Slow Horses. Has been on my radar for a while. Kikanga motivated me to check it out.


Three episodes into it. It's very good. My kind of show. Production is top-notch. Great performances, especially from Oldman.

It helps that Sebastian is a stand-up that sells out arenas. I'm sure he has a ton of input on the script. I'll have to check it out!

Reacher season 2… as a team instead of a lone wolf… it’s not bad, the ‘meat head’ character is more apt

One of the greatest televised sports moments:

Presentation of the NBA's 50 greatest players of all time during halftime of the 97 all-star game at Gund Arena in Cleveland. I have watched this regularly since it aired and it never loses juice. As I age and as these guys die off, I get more emotional upon every viewing.

I've never been a Trevor Noah fan.

But his most recent special was good.

It’s truly baffling. He’s a buffoon.

Yep, one of the better standup specials in a while.

This show is fantastic.

Wasn't really into Blue Eyed Samurai the first episode and a half. Which is over an hour of runtime. I just kinda had it on in the background.

But about midway through the 2nd episode, something clicked. And I really enjoyed the rest of the season.

IMDB gives it an 8.8/10. I'd give it a flat 8/10. Very bingeable.

Did anyone watch that Jack Ryan show? Wife and I have been watching Reacher, and have started Jack Ryan while we wait for episodes. Jack Ryan feels like a superior show with a similar super hero lead character, and it has Bunk Moreland!
