    I mentioned Magic City but Boss was another great Starz series that ended abruptly.

    The Stephen Dorff revival is fantastic.

    I thought it ended well and actually on a bit of an uptick, considering how depressing most of it was. A couple of ways to interpret the climactic scene(s), also.

    It’s on Hulu, so was unsure if I would post this on the online media thread. I’ll post in both because I feel so strongly, but Letterkenny on Hulu is absolutely fucking hilarious. Sort of like a Canadian hick version of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

    True story, my hick neighbor at our place in Vermont turned me on to it, and he and the whole neighborhood could be characters on this show.

    The show is just incredible. Definitely check it out.

    Watched the first episode last night on your recommendation, and was in tears.  Just that opening exchange where the hockey players pulled up to the fruit stand had me hooked

    Anyone watch Russian Doll yet? Seeing some incredible reviews for it and the Mrs really want to.

    I loved it and it flows really fast. I think total time was under 4 hours. And I really loved the ending.

    Umbrella Academy on the other hand….Dickon Tarley as a mini Hulk?

    Also watched Gervais in After Life in one sitting as well. Entertaining. A bit sad. A lot funny at times if you like Gervais basically playing himself. Walder Frey as Ricky’s dad was interesting. I guess Arya gave him his face back.

    Umbrella Academy is basically Royal Tanenbaums as Superhero movie. Whether that appeals to you is up to you. I’ve read the comics, so I knew going in that nothing was supposed to make literal sense. I liked it well enough. Could annoy the fuck out of someone else.

    (SPOILER ALERT)

    I watched the whole thing and enjoyed it overall. It just got tedious at times (I really did want to punch Dickon in the head and, in case I didn’t hear it the first 235 times, the Apocalypse is coming) and I really didn’t like the ending as compared to the comic books. Just seems to make the entire season meaningless if they could just go back in time and reset.

    That said I’m sure I will watch season 2.

    The part in Billions where they flash to each person’s facial expression to Chuck’s public announcement that he’s a sexual masochist might have been the best scene where no words were spoken in the history of tv/movies.  Only quibble was Wags having a look of sympathy for Wendy, should have been Wags either nodding along in yes fashion or Wags having a look of ‘why haven’t I thought of that’ pondering.  Otherwise flawless.

    Koppelman said it was one of his favorite scenes he’s ever filmed. That one and the one earlier in the season with Rhoades lying on the sidewalk outside the steakhouse looking up at the stars commenting on the old mobster who got killed there.

    I just cant buy Nina Arianda as a self made billionaire. Sorry. She was perfect in Goliath as Billy Bobs semi sidekick but the whole sassy, semi-Jersey girl thing is like nails on a chalkboard. I hope they kill her off in the vomit comet similar to how they killed off the Elon Musk clone. Though she is light years better than Axe’s ex wife who is thankfully nowhere to be seen.

    Also, in real life, wouldn’t Teddy KGB/Grigor have just killed Axe before boarding his plane back to Russia on the tarmac? And would someone like Axe really not expect that to happen? Its not like Russia would ship him back and he’s already shown zero care about killing whomever pisses him off.

    Anyone who liked Ruth Wilson in The Affair will like Mrs. Wilson.

    A true story where she plays her grandmother; who’s married to a polygamist.

    Agreed she’s playing the same character as she did in Goliath which is fine for an ambulance chaser but not as a self made billionaire.  Agreed Axe’s family sucked.  If I was that rich I’d just pay them all to go the fuck away.

    No way Grigor is done.  He’ll want to bury both Axe and Taylor if he finds out he cut his goon buddies’ capital off.

    Wow, had no idea Nina Arianda won a Tony for Best Actress in a Play, 7 years ago too.

    Yes, I think at this point the elimination of Axe’s wife (and kids to a much lesser degree) is addition by subtraction.

    Kind of funny how Kevin Pollak has morphed into the father type (Billions and Mrs. Maisel).

    Thank God.  Malin Ackerman is hot and all, but she’s not the best actress actress in the world, and was cartoon-like on Billions

    He’s great in Mrs. Maisel.

    Jonah slaying it on the final season of Veep.

    The situations in that show are getting more far fetched every week.

    Rhoades* effortlessly double crosses the assemblymen AND the governor with the same move…AND disrupts a funeral to boot?
    Not to mention Axe destroying a business while out on a boat….wonder if at that point he was going to add insult to injury and cash the check? (Probably).

    *also, what the heck was the FBI surveillance truck going to pick up at the end- did they have the waste site bugged? Just having Chuck and Chuck out there wasn’t evidence of anything.

    Axe did cash the check.  They mentioned it in the overall total of money they took from that guy.

    chuck is creating a slew of enemies but he probably figures he has Axe behind him.  I’m half expecting Axe’s girlfriend to sell him out

    I think its more likely Chuck turns on Axe with this new power trip of stepping on everyone or when cornered by the FBI. He knows Axe is, and always will be, dirty and the reaction he gave when Axe told him to go after Taylor even if they didn’t commit a crime (“That’s never stopped you before”) was that of annoyance.

    I put it at 50/50 Wendy sleeps with either Taylor or Mafee before the season is over.

    Even before the public revelation of their sex lives it’s pretty clear she’s done with the S&M stuff.  I’d go more with her getting together with that one chick in the office.

    Probably true with Chuck turning on Axe, I took it more that he was trying to put off Axe’s pursuit of Taylor so he could handle his own shit, but Axe pushed for him to basically add it to his plate.

    Re-watched bits and pieces of the last 2 episodes from the previous season to refresh the memory, that ice dragon is the coolest.  Especially the screaming sound it makes, and the tattered wings.  Bronn (sp?) getting the order to ice Tyrion and Jaime looms large, guessing one or both gets it.  I find it ironic that Daenarys can so matter of factly tell Sam yeah I killed your father and brother yet in the trailer for next week she’s all ass hurt that Jaime killed her father and wants revenge.

    No chance Bronn kills either of them. They just needed to write him out of Kings Landing because Lena Headey despises the actor and won’t shoot scenes with him. And now that Jaime is gone there’s no real  reason for Bronn to still be there.

    I would bet the crossbow comes into play with the ice dragon – either that or Aryas new toy.

    Oh that’s right, forgot about that ‘real life’ angle.

    Taylor seemed to be emulating Wendy when she dressed like a woman for the Saudis (or whatever they were).
