Tuesday TV Talk

Atlanta is back.  I’ve had mixed feelings from episode to episode, but at the very least they’re always interesting, and I’m glad it’s back.  I’m still one episode behind, so please do not spoil last week’s show for me.  Thanks!

    I have ONE episode left of the second season of Jessica Jones. And then? I have Wes Anderson’s “Bottle Rocket” and “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” (not by Wes Anderson) from my local library to watch.

  2. I’m still making my way through Babylon Berlin. It’s really good; I’m just incapable of finishing a show in a timely fashion.

    I started Jessica Jones season 2. It’s fine so far but Trish is bugging the shit out of me.

    I watched the first season of Imposters on Netflix. It’s about a guy who gets his life ruined by a con artist then he sets out to find her. That’s all I’m going to say so I don’t spoil anything. I’m also making my way through Berlin Station because I was looking for another show that’s like Homeland. It’s interesting and I really like the protagonist (he rescues the cat of someone who gets murdered and he’s good with kids). But it’s a bit of a slog and not fit for binge consumption.

    I’m in season 4 of M*A*S*H now; two main characters left the show after season 3 because they were mad that Alan Alda was the star, but BJ Honeycutt and Col Potter are good additions. The show is interesting because there aren’t really any seasonal story arcs and the tone really shifts from episode to episode. It’s pretty progressive for its time, as well: the protagonists defend gay people and won’t stand for racism.

      Oh! The Good Fight! A show so good it’s a crime that CBS is holding it hostage on their ridiculous streaming platform! Find someone with a CBS All Access account and borrow their password!

    I have so many mixed emotions about the Leftovers. There are things I love about it, but there are also a number of things I hate about it. I have pretty much abandoned any other shows that I would usually be watching because I am so curious as to where the Leftovers is headed that I feel like I have to keep watching. I’m on the last episode of season 2.

    I would not have been a loyal fan of this show if I had to wait a week between episodes or months between seasons.

    My current background noise show is Law & Order. I don’t think I had ever seen some of the early episodes – some of those are rough in terms of acting, and the music is really dated – but I’m in the golden age now when Jerry Orbach and Sam Waterston are both series regulars.

    I finally finished Mad Men! Did you guys know it was a very good show? The last season went out on some limbs, but for the most part balanced on them. And I won’t spoilerize it for anyone, but the last 2 minutes made me laugh so hard I almost cried. I still feel giddy just thinking about it. So, good job, Mad Men. You put me through a ringer and you were easy on the eyes.

    Also, if anyone wants to sell me the New York apartment where Don and Megan lived, I will give you all the money I have for it. (Warning: Sale might be below market value.)

    • *Slightly spoilery* Back when the finale aired, I read some innocent soul of a reviewer’s take where they somehow thought that the end meant Don had finally given up his ways and achieved inner peace and I was all, “oh, honey.”

    Finished Requiem – you really really do not need to bother with this show. I really really hoped that the ending would make me go, “oh yes, that was worth it and I just didn’t realise!” But it did not, and it also had the look of setting things up for another six episodes. It’s not that it wasn’t creepy, it just didn’t really seem like it had the courage of its convictions.

    So now I am teasing out the last three episodes of Before We Die – I love it so much and I don’t want it to be over. I am also watching The Assassination of Gianni Versace, which I am enjoying as much as one can enjoy such subject matter, but it seems very well done. Working on my best “Penelope Cruz as Donatella” accent.
