I highly recommend Netflix's Into the Night if you like Lost like science fiction shows. It's not in English, subtitled, but is riveting and 6 35-40 minute episodes so it'll go by quickly. Although I posted the trailer, my recommendation is to NOT watch it. Just know there is a phenomena that is killing people and they're in a plane to outrun it. I posted about this recently regarding a badly made golf graphic, but that error is not indicative of how much I enjoyed the show.

I'm trying to figure out why Ozark is so well liked. I'm on episode 8 and… can't stand Laura Linney's character, and don't really like anything else, either.

Why do people like this show? It's so slow. Boring. Oy.

I've started watching Peaky Blinders again when I'm working out downstairs.  I had started watching it several years ago, but the wifester didn't like it.  I love the pace and the style.  The cinematography really brings out the grimy underbelly of a steel town like Birmingham just after the Great War, without making everything overly dark.  It's weird, but it's a vibrant darkness.  The soundtrack is really cool as well.

Finished season 1 of Counterpart. Didn't watch it in real time despite the recommendations, it sounded a lot like Fringe, but it's not and the cast is great, plus the identity angle. I wonder where season 2 is going.

Really getting into Perry Mason on HBO.  I'm a sucker for period pieces, as well as dark detective shows, so this is right up my alley. 

I'm also currently watching The Alienist: Angel of Darkness for the same reasons, and because I've read the Caleb Carr novels, and especially loved The Alienist.  I think I've read it at lest three times.

I finished both seasons of Counterpart a week or so ago.  I found it very enjoyable.

Currently finishing up the first season of Preacher in hopes that Amazon Prime Canada finally puts out the final one.

  Lovecraft Country came out Sunday.  I'm getting a little bit of a Twin Peaks vibe in this one, as I have a vague idea what's going on, but if asked about it I wouldn't have the slightest idea how to explain it.

  But, that opening scene, sheesh.  Just about made me want to call my dealer to see if my last bag was laced with angel dust...

For you sci-fi fans I just did a rewatch of the remade Battlestar Galactica and it is still the best sci fi series ever made in my opinion. 
 

edit: for something newer if you haven’t watched Peaky Blinders stop what you are doing and go watch it.

Finally started watching Perry Mason. On the 6th episode and it’s very good. Don’t know much about the original show other than the theme, so no expectations. It’s a very well written and acted police/law procedural, not dissimilar to the best that the BBC has to offer, just an American version. Also great details in the 1930s sets. No, I don’t hear the theme in any of the soundtrack.

Cobra Kai hit Netflix, looking forward to finally checking it out. Anyone watch this when it first came out? 

I watched all of season one a while back.  It wasn't great, but after a few episodes you can't help but be sucked in.

 

Ralph Macchio is still not the greatest actor in the world.

Ted Lasso is fantastic. Absolutely great.

I just binge watched episodes 1-9.  I agree, it was fantastic.

Just downloaded Tehran from Apple TV.  It looks really good also.  I will watch it sometime this week and report back.

Queen's Gambit is on Netflix, but not out of place if it were presented on HBO in the prime Sunday time slot. Eagle. Even if you don't know chess. Kind of like not crazy about football, but loved Friday Night Lights.

Watched 3 episodes and a bit of the livestream of HBO's The Third Day. I didn't like it as much as Kelly's Utopia, although they're completely different shows, The Third Day was unrelenting and stressful, there's not much humor. Will have to see how the next three episodes go to make a final judgement.

Binged Ted Lasso, 2 more episodes to go. Very positive and funny, but the trailer before it was for Mythic Quest, and I just love that show and was yearning for season 2 of Mythic Quest instead.

First two episodes of The Mandalorian were fun, didn't expand on the cliffhanger from the last season though. It looks like they put a lot of money in the show, the visual effects are something.

Next up after Lasso might be Raised by Wolves on HBO.

Bosch hands down is my favorite show.  Looking forward to Season 7 and sadly the final season.

The Umbrella Academy is just a fun show that I really enjoy and can escape into

Mandalorian is another show I just enjoy escaping into.  I really like how Season 2 is progressing.

---------

A couple others I have enjoyed but either are limited series or may not get another season

Bodyguard was very intriguing and enjoyed it, kept sub captions on.  Their English accent was tough at times to follow 🙂 

Mind Hunter Season 1 is up there but Season 2 fell short for me, the wife liked it.  Will watch Season 3 if it comes out.

Just finished Queens Gambit and really enjoyed it.  

Unorthodox has been a lot better then expected, it is worth checking out.

    • This is misinformation. The head speed is fairly proportional to club length. There is a reason why Bryson was toying with very long drivers, and it's the same reason that a 7i head speed is less than driver head speed from the same golfer. You are completely right to be worried about distance loss when going with something shorter, and decreasing loft is a potential answer. The only way to know what your distance will be with a given club is to test it. I will say that with similar strike quality, your guess seems close (26 degree with longer shaft and 22 with shorter should yield similar results), but the only way to know for sure is to try it.
    • Had to get working again. Video isn’t the best spot. Main point of work is to get rid of the lean into the ball, because it causes imbalance and other issues. Not sure why I thought of it this way, but my feel was to simply jump/post my left leg around impact. To go with this, I am continuing the work of flattening my take away. Going to try and work hard this winter (although I have kid #2 due in a month so who knows). Putting, I started by changing my grip to get away from the last stroke. I grabbed a meter long level to use as guide for creating more arc in the putt. I definitely was pushing out as I brought the club back. So, arc both ways and fine tuning the aim. I’ve always noticed that when I use the line of the ball, that I feel it’s aimed way left. Thus, could be a source of the push that has been happening occasionally. So trust the line and arc it. Definitely need to practice but initial results are positive. 
    • I play vokey SM8 wedges and Wilson C300 forged irons. Love my clubs and wouldn't change a thing about them.  I hit alot of balls. Probably about 200 range balls and 170 play balls per week.  I sharpen my grooves every 8 weeks but I imagine the excessive amount of hard range balls will wear the clubs out over time.  When is it time to get new clubs? 
    • New York Declares State of Emergency as Vaccine Mandate Chaos Looms Tens of thousands of hospital workers are likely to be fired on Monday when the state’s vaccine mandate kicks in. State data shows that 84 percent of the state’s 450,000 hospital workers are vaccinated, along with 83 percent of its 145,400 nursing home workers. Even still, that means as many as 94,000 workers are unvaccinated, leaving a potentially dire shortfall in workers from Monday.
