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.

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.

White Lotus and Yellowstone are probably the best on TV at the moment. I watch both of those during the week though. I hope Yellowstone does not start running out of ideas to lose the grip though/.

I watched the eight-episode show "The Recruit" on Netflix. I really like a nice spy thing, with intrigue and mystery and double-crosses. Even as fake as they tend to be (lots of loose ends can conveniently connect, lots of entanglements are lightly forced…), I still like seeing how clever the writers are in putting it all together.

I enjoyed it.

So, NBC is returning with a remake of Night Court? The original wasn’t that funny, and I would expect this version will be worse. Triple bogey.

I actually really liked the original. But I expect the remake will be a letdown.

How can you rate a show that hasn't premiered? With different times humor can change.   What we thought was funny in the 70s is almost boring today and some of today's comedy just isn't funny to old curmudgeons like myself.   I'm willing to give it a couple of episodes before adding strokes to the score.

You can't rate a show that hasn't even aired.

I've seen the previews and those are typically the best part of a TV show or a movie. If the previews, and I believe they are, are any indication of the show then the show is terrible.

    • I would like to understand this rule. Rule 19.2(a) says that player is entitled to stroke and distance, even if original ball not found and identified. But relief under 19.2(b) an (c) says that ball must be identified to obtain reference point. I thought that’s why Faldo had to take stroke and distance in the 1992 US Open; everyone knew ball was in an identified tree but he could not identify the original ball. So in Reed’s case, how is that he did not have to “positively identify” his ball?
