I recently started watching True Blood.  It's enjoyable so far.  I highly recommend this show to anyone who falls in that meaty Venn diagram intersection of people who like vampires and like tits and ass.

Oh man, I hope you check back in with the later seasons

But yeah, the first few are a good time. I actually named my dog sookie because I was watching this when I got her  :Carl:

I loved that series.  The book series is also fantastic, but departs from the show massively.  You wouldn't have any spoilers by watching the show.  I really recommend the books too.

I resisted Dave because I didn't really care for Lil Dicky but watched it based on the recommendations from this blog and it is really good!

Not going to check to see if this was mentioned in another thread but the May 10 epi of Last Week Tonight featured a guy in KS who makes those limestone rock things people put in their yards/gardens and HEYO THAT MAN IS A FAN OF DA QATZ!

Just started Shameless a few weeks ago.  Damn I wish I had been watching from the beginning.

in my rational brain i was like "i shouldn't be enjoying this so much. quarantine has lowered my standards." yet. the fact remains, a week ago today i had never even heard of the show and by saturday night we had watched the entire first season. so. this is my life now.

too bad, that first season was SO GOOD. I guess Phoebe Waller-Bridge stopped writing after season 1.

A series on Amazon called homecoming starring Julia roberts obviously sounds horrible but don't judge a book by it's cover  :th_twocents:

It's directed by the Mr robot guy so it's very Mr roboty in style and a very good cast.

based on a podcast of the same name starring David Schwimmer and Catherine Keener.   I was kind of suprised they didn't reprise their roles.

Just about finished with Season 1. I've been very pleased. Easy to binge too. Based on the reviews for Season 2, I'm going to watch some other shows first.

I have enjoyed "The Great" on Hulu.  It's not meant to be historically accurate (and is actually wildly inaccurate in strange seemingly pointless ways...like Peter's dad wasn't really Peter the Great).  It's very fun, and very irreverent. Lots of people doing it and getting mumped up and killing people.

I thought it was a major snoozefest.

no, seemed like people loved to hate on it but i honestly liked it (we started like a year ago and caught up for finale).  some seemed to love the Brody storyline stuff from first couple of seasons and get annoyed by “generic brown bad guy of the season” arcs but I loved the character development past the initial couple

Watched two finales tonight. First I watched Better Call Saul, the second was The Plot Against America. This really drove home for me how mediocre Better Call Saul actually is. I know comparing anyone or anything to a David Simon project is completely unfair, but man watching those back to back was a contrast on how very little I've gotten out of BCS with the five year investment. The only character who has developed, at all, is Kim and I get no pleasure essentially watching her devolve. There was value having her as the moral string holding this together. I raised this question during the first season, and the fact that I'm asking it after the fifth is damning. Isn't this show much more enjoyable if you watched and liked Breaking Bad? I don't get how this holds up as great without that crutch.

The Plot Against America was a ride. The only reason I watched after episode 1 was because of David Simon. I knew it would pick up, come together, and make perfect sense. The characters were all great and the story was fantastic. I think this was my first historical fiction show, Treme kinda fits but not really, and I liked it. My only beef with the show is that Simon could have been more subtle with what he was illustrating with the show. This didn't have some coincidental parallels with our current political environment, it was just a straight dollar for dollar rip off of some of the things we argue about now. This was most apparent with the election day scene that wraps up the show. I guess when he's only working with five hours instead of several seasons, there isn't much time for subtlety. Anyway, it's pretty obvious this show is going to get a lot of Emmy nominations.


The last episodes take away any doubt about the statement he's making. Frankly, following him on twitter, I'm surprised it took him four years to make a show that expressed this sentiment.

The only thing I can't figure out, and it's an important piece of this, is the parallel of the rabbi. Maybe the rabbi character is a red herring?


I just finished this last night, really enjoyed it, but it's rough ridin' heavy.  As a Joco white dude I've got it pretty easy, though my wife is Jewish, so watching that hit home a little bit sort of.

My thought on the Rabbi is that it parallels the religious right as a whole hitching their wagons to DJT and MAGA?  For the rabbi he sold his people out to the nazis for personal power and prestige, the religious right sold out to MAGA for the anti-abortion judges.  Or it could be just a parallel to any one of numerous grifters who compromised themselves to be in the Trump orbit.  Just an idea, have you thought about it more?  I haven't read any internet theories on it or anything.
:adios:

After this I discovered David Simon's podcast about the show, even though the podcast was plugged at the end of the episode. Any of you that watched the series absolutely must listen to the podcast. You'll get great value from them although you've finished the series. Simon gives amazing input on the series and the book, and it's a very easy listen.

Long story short, the Rabbi isn't a parallel with anything having to do with MAGA.

Here's my pocket cast link, just search the case against America to listen on whatever platform you use.
