I agree and I'm amazed he gets the parts he does. He must be highly regarded by comedy people, but....not by me!

I was a big fan of Get a Life and liked him on Letterman but I know he's not for everyone. Still, even he couldn't save the show for me.

Whoever invented the skip intro button, we salute you

Wife and I just added HBO Max. Started watching this little known show, think it's called Game of Thrones or something. Guess it's based on a book. Almost through the first season, which has been grea

There was a marathon on one of the side channels for new year's of NewsRadio. Vastly under-appreciated comedy. If you've never seen it, seek it out. It deserves to be spoken of among the others you've

Halfway through Pelé on Netflix. Worth the watch.

Aha. Thanks for the heads up. 

His autobiography was a great read.

Only got to watch the first half but I liked it. Surprised it’s only an hour and a half. 

Really enjoyed it, but yeah, could have been longer and better still.

Unable to find the separate thread for it, so will post this here -

Amazon Prime's Lord of the Rings series issued a synopsis last month, confirming some rumors and adding some detail.

The first season is reportedly still on track to release this year.

6/8 episodes into Sex Education and liking it a lot!

Also, anyone watch 30 Coins on HBO? Had to bail like 10 minutes in because my wife doesnt do subtitles but it looked interesting to me.

Probably in.. I like how they are not "rebooting" the movies... Going back in the Time machine to setup the Original Book/Movies. :popcorn:

Its far from a re-boot, and still grounded in Tolkien's text.  They've already greenlit 2 seasons and are reportedly committed to 5.  Amazon is spending a billion dollars on this. It will either be the second coming of GOT or the most colossal failure in television history.

For those who like Warrior, Banshee is now available on HBO Max. I think its some of the same people that did Warrior. And its dope as ####.

Banshee is great stupid fun. Some nice looking women too. Lili Simmons :wub: 

I'm sure most know by now that the lead in it is Homelander from The Boys.

I actually watched Banshee and Strike Back at the beginning and enjoyed them - we then lost cinemax on our tier so I never finished and why I didnt see warrior.   They are both going to be on my list to go back too

Athough strike back lost me around season 3 or 4

I liked the Strike Back quite a bit with ... those two dudes (Stonebreaker or something?). 

They did a reboot like a year or two ago. I didn't care for that one.

Anyone else have CBS All Access/Paramount+?

If so, did you find any new/enhanced content on there today with the rebrand/relaunch?  Other than the new name and logo, it looked exactly the same as yesterday to me. 

With all the Super Bowl hype, I was hoping for more than just a name change.  Seems like launch day would have been a nice time to start rolling out some new content.

The Repair Shop is pretty enjoyable

quick little 5 episode "restoration of antiques goods" show 

Agreed. Watching these artisans work is incredible.

It’s so different watching British reality shows and American reality shows. Repair Shop just focuses on the pieces and the craftsmanship. If this were an American show, they’d create fake drama about whether things could actually be repaired or not and when people saw their fixed stuff they’d be in hysterics. As opposed to this show where people see their 200 year old family heirloom miraculously fixed and are just like “oh, that’s lovely. Well done.”

we watch the Great British Baking Show. it's fantastic. 

then my kids and wife love Chopped and a few other American cooking shows that are just terrible. faux drama. unnecessary faked trash talk. overly dramatic judges. 

i'm all the way out on American reality tv shows that aren't Survivor

Watching a fairly diverse set of shows that might have already been covered:

 

Kim's Convenience - Canadian comedy about Korean family, who happen to run a convenience store. - Light-hearted mindless humor

Collateral - oldish (2018?) modern-day British police/MI5 drama.  I'm a sucker for British police dramas.  1 season, 4 episodes.

Age of Samurai - Battle for Japan - historical reenactments of 16th century Japan, interspersed with interviews with historians.  I wish I knew more asian history, so this is more of an educational than entertainment show.

Yep.

Watched the Great British Bake-off one. We were enjoying it, very relaxing They get to the end of season 1 and I realized I had no idea what the prize even was, it was like a fancy plate or something :lol:

Coming 2 America

:lmao::lmao: :lmao:

 

The original is easily in my top 5 favorite comedies....maybe #1. 

I was worried it was going to be awful, as Murphy really hasn't been funny in quite some time. Plus, I can't stand Leslie Jones and I feel like Tracy Morgan is just too much to take some times.

But I really liked it. Its not laugh out loud funny all the way through, but I thought it was well done and there were definitely some laughs.  They brought back nearly everyone who is alive (looks like the woman who played the queen died back in 95) and there were some good cameos as well.

 

Obviously nothing revolutionary with the plot, but definitely some laughs and I think it did the original justice.

 

edit: Not surprisingly, the reviews are pretty awful and everyone is harping on the stereotypes and lack of social awareness. It must be real hard to be someone who can't laugh at anything.

Agreed 100%

More long form...1 case for the whole season.  Plus Perry is very conflicted, in pain and recovering from serving in WW1.  Plus Della is a complete smart A, not just charmingly sarcastic.  And a lesbian. It's definitely Mason for the 2020s.

The funeral scene had me laughing. The Morgan Freeman voiceover that wasn’t a voiceover broke me.

We're almost done watching Lost with the kids.

Been a great ride, even through the wtf last season. Kids' minds are blown just about every episode...and with my memory the way it is, almost like a new show for me too. Not sure how to follow it up.

We did this too. So fun to experience it again with the kids. What a monster show that was back in the day. My youngest loved it.

It was fun and the nostalgia held it together but as a movie it was really not good. But I also am not a Tracy Morgan or Leslie Jones fan.  She comes across as the female Morgan (or vice versa?). 

But as a big fan of the original i think it was fun and worth seeing.  Love that Trading Places remains part of the shared universe.

Glad to see everyone return and some of the call backs helped.  Sad one big cameo didn't happen, but he's probably too mf-ing big for this movie now.

How old are your kids? I am trying to talk the family into doing this and have been shot down thus far.

9 and 13.

9 just on the edge of too young, although she's loved it. 13 right in the sweet spot. Both minds blown with every episode.

Eta...try it- if they can't get into the first episode, don't bother going on.

If you can do subtitles, I'm really enjoying Beartown

It's excellent.  I would have binged it straight through if it weren't on HBO.  Also just finished up "The Investigation" another subbed show.  It's not Beartown good but worth a watch.

Oh, wow, I didn't realize they made a series out of Beartown.  Read the book a few years back and thought it was awesome.

I'm somewhat of a crime doc junkie, and the fact that I never heard about this story kind of blew my mind. I was in HS in 85 and have no memory of this happening. These wild cases usually get the Dateline or 20/20 treatment at some point, but don't recall even seeing that. It was like I was watching a fictional movie.

3 episodes was perfect. Sometimes they drag these things out.

ETA: I couldn't figure out how to add a spoiler so need to edit this a bit, but this was a deceptively deep series. On the surface it was a slick looking crime procedural, but it went way deeper. So many thoughts were bouncing around my head after watching it.

I think I mentioned The Lady and the Dale. Absolutely crazy story. Maybe an ep or two too long, but worth it for the insanity. And weird tie-in to Tucker Carlson that I really should've seen coming.
