About 2 hours into Netflix's She-Ra. This is really good.

Couple of recommendations

Homecoming - on Amazon Prime, Julia Roberts, brilliant

Big Mouth - Netflix, animated, gross out puberty comedy, brilliant.

American Vandal - Netflix, satire of the true life police procedural serial show like Making a Murderer. Brilliant.

Netflix's Hilda, another kids cartoon show, but with a bit of an edge, intro music by Grimes, very imaginative and fun.

Little Drummer Girl. John Le Carre directed by Park Chan-wook, if you like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Night Manager, you'll like this.

My Brilliant Friend is my favourite show of the year. Based on the first of four Neopolitan novels written by an Italian novelist who prefers to be anonymous, but worked with the showrunners closely, the show, 8 one hour episodes, takes us up to the late teenage years of close friends Lila and Elena in the tenements of a small town on the outskirts of Naples in the late 50s.

It combines elements of classic Italian movies, like Cinema Paradiso or La Dolce Vita, the time jumps of the Before trilogy and gives you such a delineated point of view from the female perspective of well, everything, it is totally immersive, you lose yourself in the lives of not just the pair, but all the families, it is literally stepping back in time. Yes, there are some difficult to watch scenes of violence, but if there weren’t, it would belie the almost casual violence in the patriarchal post war 50s and 60s. We witness the characters, without the means we normally take for granted, scrape and survive and even find joy and brief tinges of fulfillment. There are so many 1% porn shows these days with the shiny buildings and helicopter commutes, I’m actually relieved to spend some time in the dilapidated close quarters of families with as many as 5 kids in cramped 2 bedroom flats. The casting of the show is impeccable, they somehow found amazing child/teenage actors, for two time periods, who really bring the characters from the page to life. And Italian for me, is a beautiful language, it just falls off the tongue, all those vowels.

If the music sounds familiar, yes, that’s the same composer who scored The Leftovers, which contains the piano bit that makes you dusty. Not only do you get the score, which was recently released and I’ve had on repeat for the past week, but the whole catalog of Richter’s body of work stretching out almost 20 years is interspersed within the show. Where else would you watch kids throw rocks at each other to the strains of post classical Vivaldi’s Spring? Just… watch this show. The second season has been green-lighted. Yes! So compelling this story is, I have all the novels sitting on my desk and am almost done with the first.

I've been watching a lot of Gun Smoke on TV lately. So much in fact, they are repeating. One thing I note is that you see many TV and film stars of today when they were unknowns. Not Golf related, except I did see Ted Knight (of Caddy Shack Fame) on one of the episodes.  Many, many, even Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) as a Commanche Indian. They seem to be playing only the black and white series rather than the few ones in color after Chester and Festus were replaced by Newlie.  Burt Reynolds was a regular and even names one of his children after the character he played on the series.

I'm watching Hilda for the third time now. It's on US Netflix. This is one of the best things I've watched all year, even in a long time, this show is so charming. Perfect for the holidays and family. 

Watch.

This.

Show.

I am from the UK. My favourite TV show of all time was Alan Partridge. Not sure if any of you from other countries got this, and am not sure if you would have really got the humour, but it is true genius. 

 

Comedy is my favourite, but unfortunately political correctness is slowly killing humour.

It's only aired three episodes so far, but The History Channel has a new show called Project Blue Book on Tuesdays.  It's loosely based on actual government files on UFOs and whatnot.  I've enjoyed it quite a bit so far.  Littlefinger from GOT is the lead in this one.

Netflix - Kingdom 

Korean Period Flick with Zombies, awesome show, only 6 episodes in Season 1, but well worth it if you like a pretty good drama and with some zombies thrown in.  

Cant wait for season 2 now.

Netflix's Sex Education is funny and charming. The US high school in UK is weird, but what the hell, I'll buy it.

Star Trek Discovery, now in its second season.

The production quality and script of each episode are equal to decent blockbuster movies.

Closest to William Shatner quality times.

I finished the Umbrella Academy on Netflix yesterday.   It’s good, but a little different.  Robert Sheehan from Misfits plays essentially the same character.  

And im slowly making my way through the first season of ST:Discovery.   I tried watching it before, but bailed at the beginning of the Groundhog Day episode.  I’m glad I gave it another chance.

    • Day 42. Indoor work today focused on my same PP.
    • My Game Golf hasn't worked in years, so I bought my H4 today and will join the group once I get everything set up. I am looking forward to getting stats again. Plus this has some nice feature upgrades like the GPS. Thanks everyone especially @boogielicious, @Darkfrog, and @billchao for sharing your thoughts.
    • Yes. But it’s an easy fix. The understanding is anyway. Then you have to do it. 😀
    • Should be a great Super Bowl for viewers.  Mahomes and the Chiefs are never out of it.  Hurts and his Eagles are playing lights out.  Some are calling it the Reid Bowl.  Chief's coach, Andy Reid, coached quite a few years at the Eagles before coming to KC.  First time two brothers have played against each other in the SB.  Travis Kelce, Chief's record setting tight end, will face his older brother who is the offensive center for the Eagles. We bleed Chiefs red, out here.  They are not good for this old heart, though, seeming to run every game up until the last seconds to win.  
    • An odd duck, but no fairway woods in the bag.  When either set of my Pings are in the bag, I carry 3-SW.  (Eye 2 SST or Eye 2+ BeCu) When bagging the T300's, 4-GW, SW.  Frustrated over this past year with a plethora of fairways.  Went to two Callaway Super Hybrids, 3h and 4h.  So far, they've been stellar!!  (Oh. I'm 76.)
