    Loved Boardwalk Empire. For me it ranks right up there with the best HBO has done. Every season was strong with great acting and writing.

    Finished season 2 of The Boys tonight. This show is one of the best series I have seen in a long time. Really dug it and can’t wait for season 3.

    I finished all of Cobra Kai last weekend. Excited for Season 4.
    I'll probably make a video on my YouTube channel soon about the show.
    I also want to see the Pat Morita doc "More than Miyagi" soon which is on Amazon Prime for $4-$5.

    I'm now giving The Expanse another shot after struggling through the 1st season at times. I'm on the 2nd episode of the Season 2. Hoping to finish it before the Season 6 premiere in December.

    I had the exact same experience with The Expanse and eventually made it back to season 2. Since then I've binged all remaining seasons and do hereby proclaim the show one of the best SciFi series ever. in short, go for it, you won't regret it. Final season starts December 22.

    We're about halfway through Only Murders in the Building, the comedy on Hulu starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez.

    If you're a fan at all of Martin and/or Short, you'd probably enjoy this.

    It's better than I expected, Short and Martin tend to overdue it generally for my tastes (though Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid is an absolute classic) but they've toned it down a bit here and it's been good so far.

    Total agreement here, and looking forward to the final season!

    Enjoy the ride.

    Regarding Foundation I gave up halfway through episode 3. Creative premise, Asimov was a genius, but translation to screen is clunky and boooooring.

    Pretty jazzed about Sunday nights for a while now, with new seasons of Succession and Curb Your Enthusiasm beginning this Sunday.

    Hoping we don't have to wait too long for more Hacks, that's really excellent. I know it only just aired this summer though.

    ^^In Johnny Carson's voice, I did not know that! Look forward to both Succession and Curb.

    Newest show on the docket for me is Doom Patrol and I'm loving it!! Also glad to see there is more than one season to watch. Not your usual superhero fare at all - think The Boys but weirder and steampunkish
