    Just watched "Another Life" on Netflix. God, that is the worst piece of garbage that i have watched in a long time... Just waiting for Mindhunters Season 2 to come out.

    Really looking to watching Midsommar, looks even crazier than hereditary.

    Finally got around to Breaking Bad. One season left.
    I expected it to be much better, considering all the hype at the time. Can't hold a candle to The Wire.

    That’s exactly how I felt. I figured all the breaking bad fans must’ve never watched the wire. Similar issues addressed but a much more thoughtful show overall.

    Yup, agreed. I thought BB was shallow, superficial characterization, static.
    Just in case you haven't seen it, "Homicide: Life on the Streets" is worth a watch (first 5 seasons, anyway). Same guy that made The Wire (Michael Simon) made this one. It pre-dates The Wire and was basically his test balloon. Under-rated show IMO.

    Yeah, he also made a series called “the corner”.
    It’s where he developed ideas for corner boys narratives.

    Treme is my fave work he’s done. Kinda have to hold your nose during parts of the first season but it’s so worth it.

    I forgot all about The Corner... haven't seen it yet but will put it on the list.
    Simon has a real knack for telling stories in/about cities--and without getting nostalgic.

    Generation Kill is pretty worthwhile as well. It really speaks to military vets(like myself).

    I've been binge-watching Boardwalk Empire, that Atlantic City 1920's crime thing from HBO, now on Netflix. Missed it when it came out a few years back. It's great if you're a Steve Buscemi fan like I am. It's lagging a little in the 3rd season and I haven't seen it all yet so don't know how it holds up to the finish, but the first two seasons are great.

    On the lighter side just watched Life Stinks again - Mel Brooks movie second time watched it this time on TV MGMHD. 1991 enjoyed it as much as when I saw it the first time. Mel Brooks, Lesley Ann Warren an absolute comedy gem.
