    not a show ... just an eleven year old samurai movie ...

    I think I've given this a mention before, but 13 Assassins may well be my all-time favorite movie.

    If you've never seen it, see it. I re-watched it yesterday. I've watched it a dozen times. I never weary of it. Absolutely perfect.

    Watched Social Dilemma on you guys' recommendation last night. Brought to mind the effect that the addiction to social media is having on our young people. That and the lack of interaction with their peers due to this virus shit is going to to have repercussions for years.

    Started re-watching The Wire recently. Forgot how great that show was. So many of those characters have popped up on other shows recently.

    Gonna say if anyone has Apple TV+, Ted Lasso is hilarious. Just a feel good show that I really loved when I watched it

    The Duece is pretty good too. David Simon rarely misses

    started watching the expanse on the recommendation of my attorney
    pretty cool story line for sci fi and only 1 season in to 6 available seasons
    like how main characters get wasted

    Watched Hillbilly Elegy ...

    I thought it was good. I don't think it is the greatest film ever, but seeing how the woke critics hate it so much, I can say it deserves better than it is getting. God forbid that a film depicts poor white folks in the south that doesn't show them burning crosses and fire-hosing Blacks at lunch counters. It shows the ugliness of poverty, but it isn't "diverse" so it's crap, right?

    Ron Howard has been pretty left of center for his Hollywood life, but he is getting torched by the same press corps that lauded his earlier work. I wonder if he feels betrayed.

    I like The Expanse too.
    Probably the most "realistic" sci-fi show out there.

    the last ten minutes gets a little bit preachy but the whole encounter thing was so unexpected
    won't ruin it
