I liked the interaction between Greer and Ryan. The writers avoided the temptation to make Greer the “dumb ***hole boss who doesn’t get it”. They chose to make him a boss who actually understands WTF is going on below him.

That's how Clancy portrayed him, so the showrunners of this series wisely stuck with Clancy's image of Greer.

Finished Jack Ryan. It was getting good but the finale was so underwhelming. My wife and I looked at each other like.. that’s it?

Just finished The Sinner season 2. It was solid, but not close to the first season. Also...

We had the dad pegged for being a shady bad guy from almost the very first episode.

Jonah Hill (who has lost TONS of weight)


Anyone catch this yet? I haven't .. very likely to queue this weekend.

For commercial TV season starting this week, I am looking forward to "A Million Little Things" .. reads and looks a lot like "The Big Chill" .. I need a good series to follow this fall.

The previews made me think it was going to be slow...


Not sure how interested I am in watching. I’m sure I will at some point

It's SO slow. 4 episodes in and I would give up if my wife didn't want to find out the mysteries of the show.

I didn't want the second season of Ozark to end. Same with Snowfall. Anyone else watch either of these?

Ugh. Maybe I won’t check it out.


@Deja: I liked the first Ozark a lot. Only a couple episodes into the new season. Hoping it picks up.

Been pulled in to "This is Us" by the better half.

Interested to see how the "Lethal Weapon" shakes out with the political turnover.

Watched the first episode of the new season. Really liked Lethal Weapon as a series as long as you don't try to compare it to the movies. The guy who played Riggs was great and a good actor. The new guy, Cole, is a good character, problem is Sean William Scott isn't a good actor. He's a name they hoped would save the series after it's shake up.

I'll root for the show, but I don't see it surviving.

I agree. Interesting note that his character has the martial arts skills that Gibson's character did in the movies. The TV Riggs never put that on display. Supposedly he demonstrated the gun skills, but it was only mentioned in the episode during season 1 where they jumped out of the hotel window and he shot the bomb on the way down to the pool. Interesting that they brought Roger's boat into play this season with the new partner.

Not good. Wife was upset, too.

You'd like this one as well. This season is basically a sequel for both Murder House and Coven, seasons 1 & 3.

Not really a TV show, but Joe Rogan's stand up "Strange Times" on Netflix is hilarious.

For fans of the series, it looks like the Dresden Files is getting a fresh start.

I started watching it but wasn’t able to finish. What I saw.. I didn’t think it was as strong as Triggered. Need to watch the rest though.

I watched triggered tonight. He recycled a lot of the jokes. If you've seen one you've seen them both.

Nice, they really missed the mark with the first show.

Maybe this is why Butcher hasn't been writing any damned books <grumble>
