Ted Lasso is EASILY one of the best shows I have ever watched. As of late, I’ve specifically been recommending it to people who want to serve in leadership at any capacity. So many nuggets of wisdom in this show!

Just watched “CODA”. Superb! Touching. We were very happy to have watched it.

I agree.

You might try “Acapulco”. it is very different in terms of the themes and presentation, and it doesn’t have nearly as much relevance for leadership, but it has a similar uplifting effect, and has a similarly sweet outlook on life.

On AXSTV:

"Now More Than Ever: The History of Chicago"

A 2-hour look at the band's highs and lows through the decades.
Not a concert film. Instead, it's archival footage of behind the scenes, rise to fame, interviews with members and industry gurus, personnel changes, songwriting, lifestyle, travel/logistics, philosophies, etc. Fascinating whether you've ever been in a band or not.

Further solidified my opinion that, among some really top-notch musicians, Terry Kath was central to their tightly explosive excellence and best songs. Not so much IMHO after Peter Cetera seized the reins.

The Responder.

Martin Freeman(The Office, Sherlock, Hobbit, etc) plays a disillusioned and
mildly corrupt patrol cop on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

His life spirals out of control when he gets involved in a drug deal with a childhood friend who is also a drug dealer.

My synopsis makes it sound quite formulaic(which it isn't) without going further into the plot. I thought it was very good particularly Freeman's performance.

Default Bikes of Wrath

Bikes of Wrath is found on Amazon Prime. Five Australians ride bikes from Oklahoma to Bakersfield California, tracing the novel Grapes of Wrath. Interesting and worthwhile.

While I'm waiting on my wife to continue S3 of "Succession," I began watching "Killing Eve," which was on my list for a while. Binged S1 and started S2. I'm really enjoying the dark humor, as well as Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer's chemistry.

I've been watching Reacher on Prime as well - it's fantastic! I hope there's going to be more seasons because I'm nearly done this one.

Mrs. Tinnitus randomly selected 'Jackie' last night and we loved it.

My wife is younger and was not familiar with JG from her childhood. But I was born in 1955 and grew up watching Jackie Gleason/Honeymooners on family TV nights in front of a 12-14" B&W tube with rabbit ear antennae.

Brad Garrett absolutely NAILS the role and all of Jackie's hilarious characters.

Watching The Sopranos for what must be the seventh or eighth time. It never gets old for me.
