@nevets88, what did you think of this week’s episode of Westworld? Still boring? 😜


Nailed It! season 4 is out on Netflix. I love this show.

That’s funny. I was thinking of asking you what you thought of the latest episode. The show got me, would have never have guessed the reveal. Always there for Maeve scenes. Good episode.

Overall I liked it. There are a couple of things it seems like the show is setting up and I'm going to be disappointed if they happen. I'll put them in spoilers, just in case:

Spoiler

Musashi didn't cut out Maeve's pearl? That's convenient. Serac will be able to recover her and fix her up, which is going to bite Dolores in the ass.

Caleb is Jesse Pinkman. He's going to go along with Dolores for a while until she crosses a line at some point and then betray her because he is ultimately a decent human being and a "good" guy. Aaron Paul portrays the character well, but Hollywood loves its typecasting.

I can definitely see those two happening. I already forgot the trailer for the whole season so I have no clue where this is going, I like that.

Oh yeah. The Bernard and Stubbs scenes are good.

Just got done watching Picard. I will give it a tap in Birdie. I really enjoyed the first season (I assume they might do a second for now).

Yeah it was hilarious, too. Especially:

  • The one FBI agent. I kept wondering if he was the actual agent. What a goof!
  • How light the sentences were. WTF?

Finished Devs, the ending was satisfying, I wouldn't say it was great as some thought.

Finished The Plot Against America. Relevant, riveting, recommend.

Finished War of the Worlds. Story did not advance as much as I thought. It's not a miniseries. More seasons?

Finished Ramy. The ending was ewwwwww.

Started Mrs America. So many holes in my history/current events.

Started Killing Eve. Cat and mouse chase is on again.

Just finished the newest season of Bosch.  I really love the way the stories thread together, and it makes me want to read the books.  It sucks that the season is just ten episodes, because we finished it in three nights.  Can't wait for a new season to drop.

Madison Lintz, the girl who plays Maddie Bosch, is from about 20 minutes away from where we live.

My wife and I both are big fans of Midsomer Murders. We recently subscribed to Britbox as they took it off Netflix several months ago. I also loved Justified that was originally on FX. We streamed it on Prime last summer.

Why I keep watching "Better Call Saul" I have no idea. The show f***ing goes nowhere. It's like Vince Gilligan is just slowly pleasing himself, and screw everyone trying to watch the show.

Oy. It's no Breaking Bad. Not even close. It kinda sucks.

A lot of people I discuss tv with love this show.  I appreciate the artistry in its slow burn, but I’m with you on this one.

I only recently finished breaking bad and I loved Saul’s character, I thought I must get around to watching this but maybe I’ll give it a miss now

I keep waiting for the moment when it's all worth it, but he's JUST turned into Saul and it's been five seasons. He's JUST now started doing more than selling cell phones.

It's very boooooring.

You're looking for the 1.5X button, aren't you? Lol.

Finished:

Kingdom - Not crazy about the zombie action, more interested in political angle.

Plot Against America - Take me, Canada. Please.

Now watching:

Mrs America - a history lesson for me.

Perfectly Normal - going to try and read the book.

PBS Roosevelt doc (Burns, 2014) - more history.

Run - will binge it all at the end probably.

Westworld - it's a mess.

My Brilliant Friend - Great adaptation of book.

    • Like @Chris BrooksI also get coached by Erik so I mention that as a back drop to this.  I'm directly stealing this from @Chris BrooksImprove driver speed to a 105 average by August 1, 2023.   I will use The SuperSpeed system as I already have it.  Goal is 105 by August 1 2023, just like Mr. Brooks.  I'm turning 52 this year. So I'm much younger than Chris. 😁 Even so, 105 average should be attainable. I average better than 102 right now. I too, will strive to get to 105.  I'm also going to include a stretching program (which will be monitored by my 8 year old daughter) to help me get there. The stretching should also help me as 2022 was the first season I can remember where I've had so many injuries.  Improve strokes gained putting, with a focus on 0–10 foot putts (I did not steal this one from @Chris Brooks, it just so happens I need the same thing.)  Current overall stokes gained are -2.5 putting, –2.56 on 0–10 feet. (I'm actually gaining strokes on 10-30 feet.) when measured vs a 5 HCP. It's actually pretty close to the same vs Scratch.  The goal is getting to even SG vs a 5HCP.  Improve my wedge play.  I would say the one constant in 2022 was that my wedge play was bad.  My stokes gained 50-100 yards against a 5HCP is -1.7 The goal again is to get to even SG vs a 5HCP.   I like what @saevel25 does with his habit goals. I would like to incorporate some of that into these goals. Especially the last 2 goals of improving short putting and improving my wedge play. As of right now I don't have a plan other than to go get a lesson on both of these areas week after next. When I return from that lesson I will update this thread and include my plan and/or my habit goals. 
    • You missed the point. A foot in the air can be tough to pinpoint on the ground. And as Daniel said, you can score with your head, so… And people have two feet. So that's two body parts. 😉 That's not true. It's really not. I've played soccer since I was 3. It's not "too much." Again, you've missed the point… You can score with your head. Or knee. Or chest. Or butt.
    • So I think… There's a chance he plays like a U.S. Senior Open, the Senior PGA, etc. That counts as the Champions Tour. There's no chance he becomes the commissioner. He's an athlete, and though he went to Stanford, he's not a lawyer or a policy guy or whatever. So I think there's very little chance of that. If he was, it'd be as a figurehead of sorts.
    • Give yourself some credit, Matt. You are thinking about this at a deeper level.  You are probably on to something. I suspect you may be able to blend both ideas together. Here's what you made me think about. I'll use this example. Let's say I set the goal to win the tournament I am playing this April. I may shoot the best score of my life each day. I may shoot a score low enough to win the tournament most years. But, somebody else may stand on his head and shoot an even lower score.  I could look at that outcome two ways. I could say "Dang, I didn't achieve my goal." or, "Because I made that goal I played the best tournament of my life."  To your point, if my goals had been: I'm going to practice the weak points in my game for 90 minutes per week. Work on practice habits that will translate to the course. And Do a better job preparing myself for every tournament I play. Then let's say I have the same outcome as above. One might argue that I would have achieved my goals and because of because of achieving my goals I played the best tournament of my life.  So, yes, I guess it could be semantics. I think however, it's something slightly different. For me, it sounds more like making sure the goals I set are actually within my control. For you, it sounds like the goals you are interested in are more life-style goals rather than mile-stone goals.  I think either can work.  Thanks for at least making me think. 👍😁👍
