    Ah, ok. I did not even know about that. I will be interested in what you think.

    Also, tonight on the PBS World sub-channel is a doc about Charlie "Bird" Parker. It airs again in the wee hours of the morning.

    Is this something new or is it the one Clint Eastwood made about him quite a few years ago?

    Yay! Another fan.

    We blew through Season 7 in a few days. Now we have the long wait for the spin-off series.

    Watching season one (of 3) of The Ozark. All pretty despicable characters and I'm 7 episodes in. Still waiting to be drawn in.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    I got halfway through the second season before I had to bail. Besides there being basically zero likable characters, the premise just got more and more outlandish, at least to me. And I'm a big Laura Linney fan.

    It's great! I really like all the different personalities and storylines and this is just from watching season 1 which I finished last night. Lookin' forward to season 2. 7th season is the final season?

    I tend to give up on shows where I hope all the characters get killed, or at least don't like all or almost all of the characters. I recall bailing on Mad Men for that reason.
    I like the part where Icarus hijacks the Little Red Hen.

    Yes, it is. And it's cool that they were already planning the spin-off, as they set it up very well.

    (Which begs the question, why not just continue with the series?)

    I didn't read 'em, but my brother told me they're following the books to some degree, and in the books he goes private after they reorg the LAPD, and then goes back on the force later, and retires and works as a PI again, and later on hires onto San Fernando PD as a consultant. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Bosch
    ...none of which would preclude continuing to call a show about the Bosch character "Bosch".

    I thought the 3rd season was the best of the 3. I can get where people can get frustrated with Ozark, but I have enjoyed it for the most part. I thought season 3 ramped it up quite a bit with an unexpected cliffhanger ending.
