I'm just wrapping up a Hulu free month. Just finished Murders in the Building season 2 last night. Really enjoyed that show. Glad to see there will be a third season.

Also watching the new season of The Orville and digging that as well.

GoT didn't stick the landing, but everything up until the final season (and the Sand Snakes) was still incredible. And much of the last season's issues were due to cramming too much plot into too few episodes. An all time great show and definitely worth the time watching it, despite the ending. Gotta enjoy the journey.

I watched every episode at least three times. Enjoyed the hell out of it. The landing was fine. They had to write their own ending guaranteeing at least half the people would complain. I was fine with the ending. Haven’t watched House Of Dragons yet. I am waiting to start it with my wife if we ever get a chance to be in the same room together. Both of us working a lot and splitting time taking care of my parents. Saw a couple of reviews. One said it sucked and the other loved it. Par.

Contrary to GoT, HotD already has a completed story arc in hard text. That alone should make it more satisfying for the GRRM fans.

Brining Jon back was the turning point. The show didn't have much weight after that. Up until that point it was great.

First 4 episodes are some of the best fantasy TV we've watched. The episode with hell I won't spoil other than it's an amazing imagination of hell itself and Satan. There are so many actors and actresses in this show my wife and I are constantly saying "oh wow! That's <insert actor / actresss> from <insert show or movie>. I hope it doesn't lose steam because it's off to a great start.

It is hard to talk about The Rehearsal without ruining it. It is an experience, though.

I hope by that you mean a positive one. My son said to check it out so I will.

I am glad that I watched it. I had never seen anything by him before, but now I am checking out his other stuff and I enjoy it.

Nathan For You is amazing. I was all in on The Rehearsal. Like Indy says, it’s unlike anything else on TV. I would recommend that you watch some Nathan For You before you start it so you can get used to his weirdness and rhythms.

Just finished Black Bird. Would definitely recommend it. I was surprised to learn how much of it is actually true.

I’ve seen some of his comedy in the past. I am very much in rhythm with the weird.

I guess I had seen a clip here or there, but had never seen Nathan for You. I wish I would have watched it first, but it was great either way.
