ew. SOA was great at first but eventually (season 3? 4? more?) turned into such pointless shit i quit it midway with no regrets—with relief even. same as, oh, what was that laughable zombie mess? the walking dead! fucksakes. ridiculous. please kill them all already.

however, same writer/creator as SOA, just way better, from a few years earlier: THE SHIELD. o man. highly watchable from start to finish. i think that would be definitely your bag. great show, great characters, tense as fuck, and no letdown as i recall. the commish turned badass. who knew? but seriously, check it if you haven’t.

Oh, ok, I liked The Shield a lot.

Ultimately I think I'm still a little stuck in the tradition of shows that had self-contained episodes. So of these newer HBO style series, I tend to prefer the ones where the arc is contained within a single season. (Like, say, True Detective or American Horror Story)

This is kinda cheating, but I just listened to that Louis CK clip that's on YouTube. Pretty good stuff for being new material he's working on.

Yeah, it’s good stuff. I was surprised.

Very interesting cinematography. Nice use of tension.

Exactly!

The framing gets even more ornate as the thing progresses, I think.

Just finished BoJack horseman. So good, just so, so good. Anyone who started it then dropped it like I did go back and get through the first 6 episodes. After that it's brilliance reveals itself more and more.

Can't think of anything like it right now on TV.

I agree. The first four seasons are, like, holy shit SO good.

Not as thrilled by the fifth season, but still enjoyed it.

First four though... wow. Funny how a ludicrous animated show about a talking horse could say so much more about humanity and whatnot than most prestige dramas that try so hard to do exactly that.

There’s a common plot pattern though. Every season there’s goofiness peppered with hints at some darker undercurrent, and every season the darker undercurrent comes to the surface in the last few episodes and is shockingly serious. Then there’s a “sigh, moving on” episode and rinse and repeat next season.

They’re trying to one-up the darkness, I think, which might be why most recent season was starting to feel forced to me.

But yeah, great stuff. Eat shit, Simpsons.

Also I’m watching THE ROMANOVS on Amazon.

From Mad Men creators with many Mad Men actors. Some of the acting is a bit wooden, but I think that’s intentional to a degree (though why, I dunno... I haven’t figured it all out yet), but man, some of the stories are really goddamn good.

All loosely related, toying with different genres in each ep. From rom-com to thriller to modern aristocratic Cinderella shit. I’m sure it’s smarter than I am, and it will reveal itself to be brilliant throughout (because, well, Mad Men) but for now it’s just fun to guess at WTF the point is supposed to be.

ALSO, it has Kerry Bishé from HALT AND CATCH FIRE, who I could watch all day every day.

been watching some series

Hotel Beau Sejour not bad, one of those ones with a supernatural situation embedded in a claustrophobic small town in Belgium. Well acted, good cinematography

My Brilliant Friend. excellent. superb acting and a wonderful soundtrack. Italian town in late 50's/early 60's. Very accurate portrayals and sets, costumes. Nice writing, too.

If you act fast I think you can hide that and click “watch credits” or something. Gotta move like lightning though.

Granted I’ve been on Amazon for weeks now, so I don’t 100% remember
