Re: TV: what have you been watching?

today is episode 5 today of I'll Be Gone In The Dark

episode 4 was different. how Michelle, in a text exchange with her husband, eerily foreshadowed what I assume was her death, mere hours later as she slept. (episode 4 ended right there, without resolving that question obvs. lol)

I need more comedy!

Lol that is not a comedy

Hearing Oswalt’s 911 call about is wife was just devastating.

The Shield has the goat first/last episode combo.

Justified is easily in my top 5.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

Just started Fosse/Verdon, seems top notch. The 2 leads are amazing, Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams, you can see why they're both legit movie stars. Frankly it makes you think that Hollywood should be making a lot better movies, keeping actors of this caliber busy.

Just started Mr. InBetween, fantastic. Lead guy has charisma to spare, reminds me a way more bad-ass Willem Dafoe.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

Man, The Weight of Gold on HBO is a ****ing brutal doc about U.S. Olympic athletes and mental health....5 athletes in the last decade or so have killed themselves. That's insane.

If Michael Phelps - the most decorated Olympian ever has suicidal thoughts - wow.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

I just watched Athlete A, a documentary about some of the USA gymnastics girls that were abused by Nassar. It's pretty bad too. I cried a few times. I remember listening on the radio to him being sentenced live. I think I cried then too, lol. All those girls coming up and giving their statements. Well over 300 victims, maybe 500, from one guy. Crazy. So many people knew and stuck their heads in the sand too.

If you are interested in the system that allowed Nasser to exist for so long, check out the Espn 30 for 30 podcast "Heavy Metals", about the Karolyis.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

The Karolyis were a big surprise to me. I guess, in hindsight, it should have been pretty obvious how awful they were, but if you had asked me about them I would have assumed they were the sweet little grandma and grandpa, helping those girls be the best they could be, that they appeared to be on TV. I'm happy they are out of business and wonder just how much they knew about and condoned. They should probably be in jail too. I'll check out that 30 for 30 soon.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

Watched the new season of Last Chance U on Netflix. Pretty much more of the same only a little different. Instead of a little podunk JuCo in the middle of nowhere this one is in a big city (Oakland). The coach isn't so much of an egotistical maniac like the others and most of the players aren't ex-cons or guys that got expelled from D1 programs. That is not to say the players don't have varied and difficult backgrounds just not as extreme as in past seasons.

But this follows the same format as past seasons but I think this is played out. Those first 2 schools featured had a lot more personalities and drama. This school isn't scouring the country for talent and former stars who have taken a bad path and aspiring to a National Championship but more trying to make the best of what they can get. Meaning this is probably a more realistic look at typical JuCo football. If you like past seasons this will go by fast!

Very interested, but after watching At The Heart of Gold, not sure if I can stomach more of that. Just despicable and equally unbelievable all around.

I wish those courtroom officers would have just turned the other way for a few seconds when that father rushed Nassar during the sentencing. That man deserves his one minute alone with him.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

We finished Peaky Blinders. We were kinda what-the-f? on the ending. It almost seemed like they were maybe setting things up for another season if they decided to have another season, but ending it if they weren't.

This was really enjoyable all the way through. The surrounding characters much of the time were more watchable than the core. The different women that Tommy got involved with were really interesting. Especially Grace (Annabelle Wallace), May (Charlotte Riley), and the Russian Girl (Gaite Jansen).

I hated Adrian Brody in this, though. He spent the whole time trying to channel Don Vito Corleone. It was annoying to no end.

But Tom Hardy. I mean, Damn. What a fantastic character and performance. Gotta be on my top ten list of characters in a series. Just phenomenal.

The entire series held us quite well. Not our favorite of all time by any means, but quite enjoyable.

Brave New World was fairly good (especially visually) if you come in with low expectations ; worth a watch for a sci-fi buff

You got me excited thinking that there was a new Sinatra documentary out, but this is a 5-year-old HBO documentary.

Still gonna watch it again, of course.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

Ok, what should I watch next after grinding through Ozark, Rome & GOTs?

Leaning towards Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Stranger Things or The Mirror.

Any other suggestions?

Yes, I know, I'm way behind on popular TV shows. ty
