By the way .. best thing on commercial TV is "A Million Little Things" [ABC]. You really need to catch it from the beginning, and stay in. Worth the trip (or streaming time).

It's a little like "This is Us", except better.Better characters, and story lines. The multiple "awareness" story lines is really impactful.

My wife already makes me watch 'This is Us' and she is usually crying at the end of each episode. Although she hasn't much this season so maybe the writing has gone down or she's more conditioned.

Either way, we'll check it out. That emotional **** is good for me. :D

Dread: Stream at least the first episode .. first 10 minutes you are either In or not .. its really good. It will touch places in your or your wife's life that are really raw.

The Haunting of Hill House is damn good TV. The last episode is a mess, but until that point it’s excellent and a couple of the episodes are as good as anything.

Been meaning to check out this one. Accidentally watched that other one “the haunting” or whatever which is “real stories”. It is actually kinda creepy.

Definitely worthy of a shot, especially over Halloween. A few episodes in the 5-8 range of the season are mind blowingly good.

I'm in Australia where TV can't suck enough. Between 15 hour flights to LA and boredom I'm going to download the Amazon series Jack Ryan.

It has to be better than dealing what I have now

It’s not bad. But when I felt it really started ramping up, it was over.

Just finished Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan last night. Loved how it ended. 8 episodes was a bit too short, though.

It’s excellent TV. It will seem too short which means it perfectly left audiences wanting more after 8 episodes.

Yep. Like I said above, 8 episodes seemed to short. However, the ending didn't feel rushed at all. From episode 1 thru the final, everything was resolved and sown up in a neat bundle.

I would guess, going forward, this is how they're going to play each season. Episode 1 will introduce the next case and the final episode of the season will see the case concluded.

Wife and I started this a week or so ago... pretty damn good show...

The actress who plays Nellie does a PHENOMENAL job IMO...

As did the "care taker" when telling the story about his mom, wife, the house etc...

Nice, perfect show to watch with wifey. And agree about Nellie, her commitment to such a challenging role is excellent. Did you get to the Two Storms episode yet? One of the best episodes of television I’ve seen.

The last episode is awful, but until then it ramps up big time and by episode 7/8 you’ll be floored.

Watched the entire run of "Homecoming" - the new Julia Roberts show. I enjoyed the first few episodes, but once the big secret was revealed around the middle of the season, it became a chore.

Curious if you agree with my assesment: Episodes 1-9 are tremendous. Episode 10 is unnecessary and a complete farce.

Medal of Honor on Netflix, part reenactment part documentary of Military Medal of Honor recipients. Very well done the stories are amazing. Anyone who served or likes military stories should check it out.

Honestly, I’d been day drinking and need to re-watch it.

You're the third person I've heard say that. I thought the finale was fine. The season as a whole was outstanding.

Definitely agree with your last sentence. I think my big issue with it was the writing and tone changed. It suddenly became incredibly melodramatic while the previous episodes were able to keep their levity and avoid that.

Four episodes in so far (trip to Toronto today). Really like the flow and characters.
