    We've been watching Prime Suspect.

    I've never seen it, Jen has.

    Up to series 3 now.

    Kind of disliking how soap opera-y it is getting with her personal life.

    Yoko Kanno is doing original music for the live action Cowboy Bebop. This is IMPORTANT.

    - New MCU series debuted on Dis+ and nobody talking about it?

    - Kevin Smith (?!) is rebooting "He-Man: Masters of the Universe" and ordinarily I'd have zero interest because the original show was junk, and a Smith reboot can't possibly improve on it, BUT I just discovered Mark Hamill will voice Skeletor so now I dunno ... might need to watch an episode.

    Disagree there. It shouldn't be that hard for Smith to improve on the original. It was that bad.

    It doesn't even have to be She-Ra and the Princesses of Power-good to be a vast improvement.

    Looked it up and yeah shocked --- they got Kevin Conroy and Phil LeMarr ffs! That's pretty damned good for a show like this.

    If y'all are talking about the show that gave us this:

    I might consider that slander.....if I ever watched much of the show at all.

    Just done with Friends for the first time on Netflix. My parents have some season boxsets though, so I've probably seen a few episodes here and there over the year, but retain none of it whatsoever.

    Although I can't say I love it as a whole series, or have it among my favorite comedies, this is surprisingly sturdy most of the way through. Even its worst seasons (in its late run) have at least one great episode and a few very good ones sprinkled throughout. Above all though, this has to be among the best comedy ensemble castings ever? Not a weak link here, which carries it some way through even at its worst writing.

    I've seen comments here and there that often singles out Kudrow at the only "real" actor of the cast, which must be career retrospective bias or otherwise it's inexplicable, since all work so well individually and together from the start, and have honed their skills over time as the series progresses, and even as their characters become more caricatures later on. Ross as a character, for example, regresses bad around the time of [
    ] in Season 5, but that conversely frees Schwimmer up for some of the best physical bits in the show. Often rewind his scenes back a few times because some are just choices.



    The whole cast really complement each other well:

    Aniston - best dramatic acting
    Cox - best (barely suppressed) manic energy
    Kudrow - best throwaway airiness/non-sequiturs
    LeBlanc - best facial expression/reaction
    Perry - best line delivery
    Schwimmer - best physical comedy


    And "The One Where Everybody Finds Out" now ranks among my favorite episodes of TV now. Love it.
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    I watched the last 4 (or 5?) episodes of Banshee having not watched anything else before. It was alright - the lead actor from Vinterberg's The Celebration played a major role and anything with Frankie Faison in it has me interested - he was so great in The Wire and was surprised to find him in The Silence of the Lambs the other day.

    Not going to lie... Underground Railroad has fascinating production that's absolutely A+ in Sound Design, Cinematography, and Score.

    But I think I fell asleep at some moment in each episode, including the 23 minute one.

    The biggest "ugghhh" I've experienced in a while. Dexter's worst feature is that it went on for far too many seasons. Another one seems like a laborious task more than it does an enjoyable denouement. I'll never say no to more Michael C. Hall, but this might be a bridge too far.

    Three episodes in and Reservation Dogs feels so a cousin to Atlanta: a tonally unique dramedy with immediately distinct, often adrift characters; strong feel for its location; and a bit of casual surreal streak. Digging it.
