Got around to Black Mirror Season 5. 1st episode is classic Black Mirror with an interesting take on keeping in touch with a friend. 2nd episode was solid if sort of unmemorable. 3rd is kind of overshadowed by Miley Cyrus, who stars in it. Goes a bit off the rails at the end and could have almost been a Disney movie. Got a surprisingly decent Miley Cyrus cover of NIN’s “Head Like a Hole,” and I’m not a Miley Cyrus fan at all.
I just resubscribed to HBO through Amazon Prime due to the recommendations for Barry and Chernobyl. Started on Barry last night and binged 5 episodes of Season 1 quickly. Love the show, love the dark humor, and this one is right up my alley.
Another on Amazon…Jack Ryan…I am a huge Clancy fan so it irritated me a bit they retconed his origin story but once you get into the story it’s a fun Clancy like ride.
Similar but it’s on Showtime …Homeland. You get a lot of ugly crying from Claire Danes. The first 2 seasons were good. The most recent two were great. You can skip the middle seasons and just read a recap to catch up for the last 2.
Another HBO show…Veep. It just wrapped up the series. It is funny clever political satire. Wife thought the language was just too salty for her taste. Jonah and Richard are scene stealers in the series.
Another one you might want to watch with the wife…Marvelous Mrs Maisel. By the writer of Gilmore Girls…fast zingy writing. It’s funny.
If you need a football fix…All or Nothing a season with the Rams. It’s like watching Hard Knocks once the season begins. It is the season with Case and you see the moment when the GM and coach gave up on Case.
