I think this line's mostly filler.

Good show.

I've been watching Iron Fist. Still good, but not quite as impressive so far as the rest of Netflix's Marvel shows.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was pretty funny.

New season of Archer has been good too. I like the longer plot arcs.

Big Little Lies

The season finale is tonight on HBO. It's not pleasant to watch. The writing is as good as I have ever seen on television. Excruciatingly real, the tension is breathtaking. I don't like it but Twil and I are *transfixed*.

If you watch it and you don't like it, I'll give you your money back.

finished up Letterkenny. The inch says Trial and Error is good. "Like Parks and Rec, but in a courtroom."

Any notes on that?

Trial and error is pretty fucking funny. The casting is perfect, they've got great comic instincts. Shot in a documentary style, around the murder of the wife of a kooky poet played by John Lithgow. Steven Boyer is hilarious as the dim-witted assistant investigator, a former cop who was filmed on dash cam shooting his patrol car full of holes as it rolls away from him during a traffic stop because he forgot to put on the brake.

The editing of the trailer destroys the perfect comic timing that is one of the great things about the show. The trailer makes it seem hyper.

Louis C.K. 2017. This was brilliant, Carlin level society dissection.

On my list. I'm happy to hear it's good, Louis C.K. is kinda hit and miss for me, but, I like of a lot of his stuff.

Just started Big Little Lies. I was reluctant, even though everyone said it was so good... but it really is SO good.
