I finished The Americans last week.  Not great but really solid.  

Yup. Great acting throughout. I really liked this show and thought the ending was exactly how it should have been.

I'm so sad this season of Curb is over already. It was really great! The season just flew by, and the payoff with the various other spite stores was great, especially Sean's Exotic Birds and Jonah's Deli.

"A little light for a Kwami, don't you think?" LOL!

One benefit to this virus is guys like him are going to be left at home with their thoughts for a few months. It will inspire a lot of creativity. Can't wait to see what he has in store for next season. 

Mocha Joe getting the spite house was pretty brilliant.

When the fire chief was talking about an arson investigation, I had a brief panic that this was going to be the series finale, and he was going to end up in jail just like Seinfeld.

I don't think he'd make that mistake twice.

Trying to stay away from the obvious ones like The Wire, West Wing, The Sopranos.  

The Shield is another fantastic show, probably in my top ten all time.  I think it's on Hulu right now.

We spent a bit of time on a couple of old BBC Detective shows. Inspector Morse and Lewis. PBS Masterpiece ran a couple of seasons on a Morse prequel, Endeavor

I think season 10 was the best season of Curb.

Hard to argue against that. The old man hasn't lost a thing.

I like Maya. She’s the first fed that makes me root against Marty. 
 

Darlene is nuts.

Thank you.

I rarely hear it discussed as such and it was an excellent show.

I am only 7 episodes in but I agree. Season 9 seemed tired for some reason but this one is as good as any of the others.  They all run together for me.

I would have sworn that Jonah was going to do it. Nothing surprises me anymore. 

I kept thinking that Ben was going to be a mole and, when it became obvious that he wasn't, I kept questioning why he was a necessary character. Well...now we know.

But it did bother me that the entire season was about Ben. I just didn't like him. And didn't buy that Ruth would like him either. Especially after she found out about him. The Wyatt/Darlene thing as well.

The show is certainly not afraid of slow burns.

Ruth makes sense because of her daddy complex. Her dad was nuts so she is attracted to nuts.

Darlene is just using Wyatt as a toy. I forsee her killing him off which leads to or is a result of a standoff with Ruth.

Ozark

Spoiler
  • I liked Sue.  But every time she came on screen I couldn't help saying to myself, "That's not how it works.  That's not how any of this works."  I would have laughed if they worked that into Marty and Wendy's therapy sessions somehow.  

 

  • I need to get me one of them fancy casino boats.  On the outside it looks small enough for your kids to play with it in the tub.  On the inside it makes Ford Field look small.

 

  • With Ruth it really wasn't about Ben, it was about Marty.  Normally we see a girl like Ruth fall into some twisted romantic relationship because of her daddy issues.  With Ruth she actually found a healthy/normal (or at least not romantic) father/daughter type relationship with Marty.  Look how she greets him when he gets back from Mexico.  She runs to him and wraps her arms around him like a little girl would if her father just got back from somewhere.  So when Marty does nothing about Frank Jr. it breaks Ruth and she just ends up with the first available loser.  If Marty takes care of Frank Jr then Ruth drops Ben the second he starts going crazy IMO.

Great season.  Looking forward to the next one.

Good point about Ruth. That makes a lot of sense.

Yeah, definitely....good call on Marty/Ben. She is my favorite character on the show. "I was a criminal long before Marty moved to the Ozarks" (paraphrasing) was one of my favorite things she said.

The Good Place

I am thoroughly amused and entertained.

 

One of the best American sitcoms dealing with academic moral philosophy I've seen in quite some time.

As long as we are touting old shows as well, I can't recommend The Carmichael Show highly enough. It ran on NBC for just 32 episodes (fewer than the Honeymooners) over three seasons and ended just a couple years ago. It's very All in the Family like, with good laugh-out-loud moments for both the script and the performances.

It's available on Hulu and I've been rewatching it, and it's just as good the second time around.

I've been looking to start on this one but by the time I got the idea Prime was re-running season 3. It didn't seem like something to cut in on the middle with so I'm waiting for it to cycle around.

IDK. Network sitcoms tend to bore the **** out of me. The humor is just too simple and lazy for me I guess. I love the good ones like Seinfeld, Curb, The Office, Arrested Dev., etc. But I gave this a good 6 or 7 episodes and just couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll try again sometime.

If you thought The Good Place was too simple and lazy, you must have been distracted viewing and not paying full attention. I would definitely recommend you try again.
