Started watching the Castle Rock series last week and have been pleasantly surprised.

Yellowjackets has been compared to Lost and rightfully so, it's quite the show to binge. The first episode was a little CW, a trudge to be honest, maybe it's my familiarity with NJ. I get establishing characters, but not every pilot can be Lost. Once it starts to get going, you're gonna get your Lost fix, but the question remains can it wrap up its mysteries in a satisfying way like say Dark.

I've always been intrigued with Yellowjackets but never tried it. If it's anything like Lost I might have to jump on board

Resubscribed to Hulu for Prey but haven't watched Hulu shows for the longest time. Missed Conversations with Friends, Dropout, Plainville, all of those, well, except for Reservation Dogs. Finally started catching up by finishing first season of Only Murders in the Building. Very bingeable and funny and Steve Martin is still a wild and crazy guy.

Finished the Netflix tv scripted comedy, Mo. I never heard of the guy before, but he's a very established comic. He's Palestinian, so you get jokes with a perspective of someone who has experienced getting kicked out of his home among other things, but he's very funny and the show is shot in Houston, a city we don't see much of on tv which was cool, and I got some life lessons. I laughed... a lot. Here's the imdb description:

Quote

Mo Najjar who straddles the line between two cultures, three languages and "a ton of bullshit." The fictional Mo is a Palestinian refugee living one step away from asylum on the path to U.S. citizenship.

Also finished the Peacock show, The Resort, an amusing little mystery box comedy with Chidi from The Good Place and Cristin Miloti from the movie Palm Springs. A fun ride.

Just finished The White Lotus and thought it very good.  I believe they are doing a second series.

Apple TV's Bad Sisters is pretty good. Funny. And the worst husband, ever, with respect to psychological abuse.

Television begins and ends with The Wire . Season 4 in particular is a masterpiece.

Its fan-base is comprised of people with legitimate attention spans who read books regularly. If you don't fall into this population, don't even bother. The writers spoon feed you nothing.

I need to update this. My all-time favorite TV show is definitely the Sopranos and it's not even close. It's interesting to me though that I didn't know that yet when I wrote this post over twelve years ago. I did enjoy the Wire, but it's not entertaining enough to have rewatch value like the Sopranos does for me. The Sopranos I feel I can almost watch over and over and it always continues to make me laugh. 

 

My favorite TV character is probably Dexter though. The supporting characters there just aren't strong enough to make for a show on the level of Sopranos, but Dexter himself is great.

I quit Star Wars after that last movie, it was so bad. How many seasons of Star Wars tv shows have been made since, 5? Andor got me back watching Star Wars again, probably because it's the least Star Wars-y of all the new content that's been made. Veteran stage actors, practical effects, better writing, Nicholas Britell scoring. The first three episodes were good.

    • Just wondering if anyone who has had a knee or hip replaced still can play as you once had?
    • I made peace with my driver. I'm hitting it better than I've ever hit it... or rather maybe I've finally been fit into one that works for me. Or I finally figured out how to hit it. It's probably the latter, because I can't believe that changing the loft from 10.5 to 11.25 and adding 150 rpm spin has made that much difference in ball flight. I did this three rounds ago. I was hitting around 32% fairways with it. The last 3 rounds I've been in the upper 50s%. I don't slice anyway. 
    • Day 61 (9/24/22): I worked on impact position in very abbreviated swings with real golf balls. Then I played about 12 holes at PGA West Stadium Course on the simulator. That. Course. Is. Unbelievably. Difficult. Good luck if you miss a green basically anywhere. Holy moly. I’m going to Palm Springs and was planning to play it so I think I need to play it about 50 times on the sim before I go there. 
    • Day 14: Still working on grip thing, maybe too much (blisters), and to the point of overthinking things (feeling flummoxed addressing the ball right now). We'll see how it goes in tomorrow's round, but still feel limited to 3/4 swings to contact the ball solidly. Planning to record some swings tomorrow afternoon, but it's a busy day, so maybe Monday.
    • 101.  It felt better than that though because I had two catastrophic par 3's ( a 7 and an 8 ) that put me over the 100 mark. If I would've just double bogey'd those two holes I'd have shot a 96. And I putted exceptionally poorly. It's usually a stronger part of my game, but I had a couple that stopped and peaked in the hole without going in and a few I misread so badly.  This whole counting-every-shot thing is tough. 🙂
