I got HBO via Hulu to watch The Leftovers
What's your take on The Leftovers? It's one of my all-time favorite shows, but it kind of flew under the radar with very limited viewership.

Has anyone seen Brockmire?

I got told about this show and pulled it up on hulu. The first episode is possibly the funniest thing I've seen on TV in a LONG time. My wife even enjoyed it.

Warning: it's not a family show :rofl

Finished it yesterday. Incredibly good, still can't stop thinking about it.

Just watched a delightful period movie called Florence Foster Jenkins starring the delightful Meryl Streep in a true story based on some heiress lady from circa WWII, who loved music and dedicated much of her life to advancing the musical arts but unfortunately kind of sucked at music, and didn't know it. The delightful Hugh Grant also stars. If you have any love for Meryl Streep you gotta watch this shit. She is so good at her craft, so effortless and lifelike, it is delightful to behold. Hugh Grant, not so bad himself. Generally I don't have much time for cinemas and shit but I'd say I am a fan of this chap, Hugh Grant. (About A Boy is one of my all-times.) The Howard Wolowitz guy from TV's Big Bang Theory falls flat trying to keep up with the two master thespians.

I had very low expectations of this comedy and was surprised ... I liked it. Not a classic but really a pretty decent movie. The "other" couples and their dialogue while participating in the game night were particularly humorous.

I laughed enough times to make it worth seeing but not enough to make it worth seeing again.

Thought Rachel McAdams was great in Game Night. And, I have always liked Jason Bateman's dry humor. He was great in the recent Netflix series, Ozark. Serious role for him in this one, but still had some great dry humorous lines, delivered as only Jason Bateman could. If you haven't seen the series, I'd recommend it. It's only two seasons long so a binge watch will catch you up fast.

Speaking of Netflix we just started the kimensky project (or something like that) with Michael Douglas. I really like it, it's pretty funny.

Watched half of the Lady Gaga Bradley Cooper shit last night. I thought it sucked. Watching two albeit talented people make a cheesy movie with a trite, TV-caliber script/story. Blech. No way I could get absorbed into it or suspend disbelief or any of that other stuff that happens during actual good movies. On top of that it's extremely self-glorifying. Do not watch, unless you happen to be a very big Lady Gaga fan.

I finished watching The Umbrella Academy on Netflix over the weekend. I enjoyed it and was happy to hear season 2 has been green lit.

I'm not a fan but I admire her vocal ability. I thought she came across as more or less what she is, a non-actor. Actors and singers can usually cross over and do the other thing decently. She did decent IMO. But I couldn't buy into her performance much. I thought the movie looked pretty nice on the screen though. Bradley Cooper was good even if I am convinced that he's doing a Sam Elliott impression the whole time.

I haven't seen it but I like Lady Gaga. She was pretty solid in season 5 of American Horror Story, having the unenviable task of picking up the huge mantle that Jessica Lange left behind.

I found myself doing the Netflix scroll the other night, probably spent 15-20 minutes looking at stuff but couldn't commit to anything. Umbrella Academy was on there, being pushed hard in my face. I might look into it. I'm in a lull right now, waiting on new seasons of Black Mirror, Mindhunter, The OA, and Fargo.

Nat Geo showed "Free Solo" last night. It was pretty compelling. Even though there's no suspense because you know he makes it in the end, i.e. you know he's not going to fall off the face of El Capitan, my hands were still very sweaty by the end.

It came on while I was doing other stuff, so I only half-watched, but it was amusing. It's the same kind of single camera, documentary style comedy as 'The Office'. I might record it. I still plan on getting into Rick and Morty, just haven't had the chance. Way too much stuff on TV right now.

Not before Season 8 starts. Have you read the books? (He has written 5 of 7, but is stuck for several years on 6, and the show passed the books.)

No, I haven't. That's got to make it tough. Did the show's writers just create it's own content after it reached the endpoint of the books?

Sort of, they do have a close relationship with the author, and they had to answer three questions about where the author was taking the story, before he gave him his blessing to develop it into the series. But there were also some differences made anyways just from the nature of turning a book into a series. So they did have a rough outline of how to take the story.
