    Bailed on the OA. Good call Donc 😆

    You need to look up the very ending on youtube or something if you can.  It’s the stupidest fucking thing I’ve ever seen outside of a Ben Volin TV appearance.

    Sneaky Pete might have the most “that guys” I’ve ever seen in one show. That guy from The Wire, that other guy from The Wire, that guy from Justified, that lady from Justified, that guy from The Affair, that guy from Dexter, the Huxtible kid.

    I was watching the first episode of Homeland this season. At one point some intelligence type says “There is a reason we haven’t had another 9/11 in this country…”

    Didn’t they have the entire CIA blown up and hundreds killed in the show a few seasons back? :lol:

    Travelers was very good. Agreed that the cliffhanger at the end of season 1 was very hacky. Try out Glitch on NetFlix–6 episodes and interesting premise. Much better cliffhanger ending. Also, started watching Fleming (again, NetFlix)–pretty good. A biopic series on Ian Fleming and the impetus for creating the Bond character. AKA Board Wheelhouse.

    Thanks for the recommendation enjoyed Glitch a lot.  Definitely a better ending.

    TV is dead. There’s nothing on.

    The Young Pope/season 117 of Homeland has to be the weakest Sunday night offering combo in years.

    Both GoT and Better Call Saul seem like they should be back already.

    Tried Taboo. Love Tom Hardy, but I bailed about a half hour in.

    Some of you guys liked Quarry?

    I liked Quarry.

    Agreed on Sunday nights, guess I’ll just be waiting for Silicon Valley and Veep.

    Starz is bringing back The Missing, this season focusing on the French investigator guy and an old case.  I’ll sign up.

    Ding away, but I like when Homeland is back on. It’s not the show it once was, but I still end up getting into each season. Sal Bass, you’ve still got it kid. Billions is coming back this month.

    I watched the first one this season, but then I see Quinn getting rolled in the crackhouse and it’s like what the fuck is this?

    Loved Billions. That Legion show is supposed to be good, so I guess some stuff is coming. Gonna try Quarry.

    I’ve always liked the Quinn character but not enjoying this story line.  The Saul/Dar stuff is usually good.  I couldn’t give a tin shit about crazy Carrie and her kid.

    Quarry was good. Try it I bet you like it (except the ending)

    I liked Sneaky Pete. Good ending, and set up for Season 2 with that other guy from Dexter.

    If you don’t mind reading subtitles I binged Deutschland 83 and liked it a lot.  Good 80’s soundtrack is a bonus for me too.

    Watched the first one last night. It’s good. Also, Starz put the whole season on demand to be like Netflix.

    Starz has been putting their shows up on demand the day they air but like right at midnight in the AM.  Makes it real nice to be able to watch Black Sails whenever I want on a Sunday.  Ash Vs. Evil Dead was pretty solid this last season as well.

    Watched Crashing on HBO with Pete Holmes. I legitimately can’t figure out if it is funny or not. Please somebody tell me my opinion thanks.

    couldn’t tell, but sort of enjoyed it.  I laughed at him making fun of Leif’s media choices as a serious 3rd grade art teacher.

    Same here. Watched it for Artie Lange. Will I keep watching it if he’s not on it? Maybe.

    Currently in the middle of s slow moving Breaking Bad rewatch.

    Still think The Sopranos is a better show, but “Box Cutter” might be my favorite episode of anything.

    It’s gotten better, the Quinn stuff namely.  I still hate Carrie.

    I struggled the first half hour of the Patriot on Amazon, but I’ve enjoyed it through the first 3 episodes.

    Just getting into PATRIOT on Amazon Prime. Offbeat and super dark humor at times.

    I dig it.

    Loved REM’s Begin The Begin closing out Billions last night.  And if that AUSDA isn’t on the horn to that high altitude hooker stat he’s insane.

    Latest Billions was supposedly written by the same guys who did Rounders.  Best episode in a while.  Loved the final hand. The entire Axe trading room is exactly what my time at Goldman Sachs was like. Both in a good and bad way.  Miss the energy.  Don’t miss the douchebaggery.

    Thanks for mentioning that for the first time I happened to catch the after show commentary and the writer casually mentioned the Rounders connection.

    The whole show is created by the Rounders guys.

    Brian Koppleman is a good Twitter follow. Has great taste in music (that is, very similar to mine).

    Black Sails final season has been freaking great, tough to talk about anything without major spoilers but it’s been very satisfying as a final hurrah.  Also, I really liked the book American Gods, hoping the show is of decent quality.  That trailer they released was thoroughly meh inducing.  Good cast though.

    The keel hauling scene was great/disturbing.

    Anyone still in on Colony? I think this season has been significantly better than last season. Show still just rates decent for me though.

    Did not know that. I’m currently reading Black Edge which is about Steve Cohen and its amazing how much of what’s in the book is also in the show. Never heard that the show was based on Cohen but it has a lot of the same stuff from the hacking into satellite images in China to hiring a therapist to help the psycho traders to dodging the Feds over and over. Maybe all hedge funds were doing that.

    I’m just about done the Black Edge book and who shows up as one of Cohen’s lawyers? None other than Deflategate friend Ted Wells. And they make a point of saying that Wells is known to sometimes cry while giving his closing arguments while being part of a $10,000 an hour legal defense team. I hate Cohen even more now.

    Fargo Season 3 is going to feature a new Marge Gunderson.   One head line says  “going full Coen Brothers this season”.
