McMillions on HBO has been solid. They're milking it a bit with the number of episodes but it has been entertaining.

I watched the first 2 but havenít gotten to the third yet. First was great, second less so. The FBI guy is great. Agree on milking episodes and I think they could have done this in a 90 minute type show that would be very entertaining.

I've been needing a new show and saw good reviews of altered carbon so decided to give it a shot, only 2 episodes in but I think the show is great so far, looking to see how it continues to go!

I also started "Love is blind" on netflix, show is pretty entertaining/funny

Absolutely agree! I found my mind wondering a bit in the second episode. Granted, I realize the plot is somewhat intricate considering all the parties involved, but do feel the length could be shortened.

Season 1 of "The Sinner" was good, season 2 was ok. But Bill Pullman is really good in this series.

Nevermund his age, SMDH. He's actually been a Older Actor since first appearing on Star Trek series years ago. This show has a solid storyline with "Data's death and the mystery of his Daughters". Who are pretty hot by the way! And they have introduced several young supporting cast members. I'm also very interested to see what will happen with The BORG...

Supposedly seven of nine is in the series. I have not gotten to her appearance yet. But I've always loved her appearance, if you take my meaning.

FYI The first movie or TV show I saw Patrick Stewart in was Excalibur. He didn't look young in that.

Haha!!! I remember that. I'll do you one better.... I remember him in that 80s Psedo-SciFi Vampire flick: Lifeforce. He was mature looking way back then too.

Had a 2 day work trip and lots of flying so watching several episodes of the Stranger and Daybreak. Also finished Locke and Key. All very entertaining. Stranger has me hooked with how everything is coming together. Daybreak seems like mindless fun, but still a good watch.

It's fantastic. But I've been a huge Curb fan since it came out and a big Seinfeld fan as well.

Sorta looking forward to the new season of better call Saul next week. Watched the new season promo last night. First two seasons have been pretty lackluster and slow moving but with Mike joining the party you can see it’s headed in the right direction. Gus onboard this season should amp it up to exciting. Hope it gets to near BB level of addiction

Picard is the captain Roddenberry wanted rather than Captain Kirk. He's more a Captain Robert April from the early writings. The network wanted a more swashbuckling captain, hence, Captain Kirk and the rest is history.

My wife only knows him as Scrooge as his is her favorite adaptation of the movie.

My wife has latched onto 'Counterpart', a Starz series about parallel universes, now available on Amazon Prime. I like JK Simmons but I'm not falling in love with the series after 3 episodes. Wondering if it's worth further investment.
