    We also just finished Bosch: Legacy and were happy to see it carry on as just a continuation from the original show. Bosch is a PI now, which should open up some different storylines. And I like how they're handling his daughter's story. Another thumbs-up from us.
    me too! Quality.

    Wow! I'm in. Though I do like the episodic nature of the show. I think they're wise to do a long form thing.....I anticipate Our Hero may go on to fight Facists....

    There's no release date yet, but the FX network will have a "limited series" of Justified: City Primeval. So far, no word on Walter Goggins returning but they pretty much closed the book on his character. Let Boyd stay behind bars. I would be more interested in the return of Deputy Marshal Tim Gutterson, sharpshooter and perpetual smartass.

    For those of you who were fans of the German Sci Fi Time Travel series "Dark". Here is the new trailer for their new creation coming sometime later this year:

    Just watched the first episode of the last season. Still an amazing show.

    The Old Man The second episode with Jeff Bridge was on FX last night. If you have Hulu you can get it there too. So far pretty good. Dan Chase (Bridges) mysteriously left the CIA and lives off the grid. When an assassin arrives and tries to take Chase out, the old operative learns that to ensure his future he now must reconcile his past.

    Alone--I think the guy's name was Igor that tapped out last night. For a guy that supposedly had such survival skills, he was a lunkhead to build such a fortress of a shelter. I'd think the priority survival skills in order are: water, fire & then food, and shelter in that order. He even realized that his undertaking was killing his back, and said I should have just gone for an A-frame, yet persisted onward. What a dummy.

    Very interested in this.

    Also DVRd the new series Dark Winds, on AMC, and based on Tony Hillerman's novels. Haven't watched yet.

    Yeah he just burned himself out with those big trees with no calorie intake...bad move. Right now Benji seems to be in a good place. Love this show.

    The Old Man Jeezus H. That first ep was crazy. Hooked. Loved the 2nd ep as well. Bridges, Lithgow? C’mon now. Waiting for the 3rd ep. Don’t mess with a man and his rots.

    The wife and I started watching “Yellowstone” for the first time over the weekend. So far 5 episodes into the first season. I like it, but don’t love it. The Melodrama is a bit much at times and some of the characters seem way over the top (the daughter “Beth” especially). The constant killings with no reprisals seem a bit ridiculous too, but maybe this will play out more eventually. We will finish season one and then make a decision to continue from there.

    We watched the first two episodes of Yellowstone a while back and yeah, way too much melodrama. It felt like a soap with spurs. Right now we're watching the fantastic Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and the new season of Stranger Things which is frankly, been a bit depressing.

    "Yellowstone" was my wife's choice. Have not seen the new season of Stranger Things yet.

    Depressing? I thought it kicked ass! My favorite season by far.

    The Offer was far better than I ever expected it to be. Going it, I figured, well, I like The Godfather, so I might as well give it a try. Well worth it, IMO.

    I'm only two episodes in. I guess between Hopper's story line and El getting bullied, everyone's life in turmoil, it seems to drag it down. But the Big Bad is a real piece of work and you can't lose with Robin/Steve/Dustin.

    Love Death + Robots. This latest season isn't quite as good as S1 but I liked it better than S2.

    The best short is called "Night of the Mini Dead". Synopsis: "A bit of unholy cemetery sex ends badly, kicking off a worldwide zombie plague. It's the cutest apocalypse you'll ever see."

    Unfortunately, it's also the shortest, so watch it a second time with the captions on. It's pretty funny.

    I'm four episodes in and really enjoying it. I'm so impressed with the actors playing Pacino and Brando, they've done their homework. Not so wild about the guy playing Sinatra though. As a huge Godfather fan, this is right up my alley, and I'm so glad they didn't mess it up!
