    I'm just watching episode one. It's pretty good.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Oh nice. Didn't realize this was a thing. Will watch soon.
    Please don't ask questions, just use google.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    Is it just on HBO Max or also on regular HBO?

    Regular HBO. Episode one aired Friday night, episode two on Saturday. Now to be repeated to infinity. I snared them on the DVR.

    We finished Ozark over the weekend. Part of the ending was pretty predictable, but I can't say that we were able to predict all that happened in those last couple episodes. For those who have watched the show in its entirety, Netflix has a half-hour "behind the scenes" wrap-up feature that was a good watch, too. Jason Bateman might be the most respected man in Hollywood.

    I thought those shows were great, but I was 5 or 6, so they were probably really bad.
    Gadzooks, Captain Nice. That takes me back. I was 9 when it started airing in early '68. It ran fifteen episodes. The rather silly theme song can (surprise surprise) be seen on YT.

    "Look, it's a nut who flies around in pajamas!"
    "That's no nut boy -- that's Captain Nice!"
    "Mice?" (not sure about this word)
    "Nice, Nice, Nice -- Nice!"

    Interesting! I'll have to check this out thanks. I loved the series, but was a little bit unsatisfied with the ending.

    Finished up Bosch Legacy and thought it was real good. Hope this sticks around for a while

    From the description I thought this referred to Mr Terrific - “only squeamish Stanley Beamish could take this magic power pill” I guess there were a lot of similar shows.

    I believe it's already been picked up for Season 2.

    I started watching Bosch the other night. It's a detective show that comes from a series of books about the main character, Harry Bosch, from the Michael Connelly series of books. I think you can see them via Amazon too, but also free thru a channel on the Roku called Freevee. So far it's pretty interesting. Thanks to who suggested it.

    The mid-season finale of Better Call Saul last night was ! My wife and I both audibly gasped. Final six episodes start July 11.
