Brad Garrett absolutely NAILS the role and all of Jackie's hilarious characters.
But can it core a apple?

The book was written by Atwood but the Series is "based upon" that novel and varies from the print version enough to say it really isn't Atwood's work.

Is this still good, or are you just pushing through just because you have to? It's so exhausting and frustrating (stupid decisions by characters, repetitive shots of Moss looking intensely straight at the camera), so much so that I stopped in the middle of Season 4. If you tell me I can still get something new out of this, I might want to try again!

Really enjoyed “Fast Color” on Netflix.

“Derry Girls” is a outrageous and funny. On Hulu.

“Reboot” (Hulu) is terrific! Funny, and smart.

Just finished “The Crown”.
Insightful, entertaining and a sometimes depressing view of the monarchy and a portion of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

I also really loved Fast Color, which I found especially refreshing because I'm one of those people who just cannot get into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and am a little overwhelmed by its movies' ubiquity. Even though Marvel has cranked out a mindboggling number of movies, it hasn't really explored a lot of compelling uses of that superpower concept. Nice to see others taking a crack at it outside of that machine.

I don't generally like much of what passes for comedy these days, but this was an exception. Of course, all the actresses were way older than the characters they were playing, but I loved this.

I just finished 'High Water' on Netflix: an interesting Polish disaster drama inspired by a flood in Wroclaw in 1997. Though it did leave me wondering at the end, "Where's Wally?" (You will have to watch it to understand!)

A third recommendation for Derry Girls - absolutely cracking stuff. I thought the third series wasn’t quite up to par with the others but the first two are hilarious.

I suppose we are from the wrong part of the world.
We didn’t get it and after two episodes we were done.

Last night we finally finished season 4 of Killing Eve.
Quirky off the wall show we enjoyed the last few years.

I know there are a lot Westerns fans on the forum, you can't go wrong with Dead for a Dollar. They have a top notch cast, and while they call it a B Western, that's primarily because it was dedicated to Bud Boetticher if you are familiar with his work.

After an unbelievable season two finale, BROADCHURCH has started up it’s third season on PBS. The season opener was a little slow moving for my taste, but they are setting the tone for what twists and drama are to come, I’m sure.

Filmed back in ‘13, ‘14 and ‘15, this is the last season of this short lived series. Chris Chibnall of DoctorWho fame intended this to be a one and done show, but the feedback was so great at the end of the first season they ended up shooting two more years worth of episodes.

Seeing David Tennent along with a young Jodie Whittaker was terrific! Two Doctor Who’s in the same drama series. Then they have Arthur Darville(a DoctorWho companion from Karen Gillan’s days) and top it off with Eve Myles from Torchwood!!!! I love Eve Myles! If you didn’t know, Torchwood is an anagram for DoctorWho. Torchwood was a spin-off of DoctorWho and starred John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness and Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, his confidant. Another short lived series but very much worth finding and watching if you like sci-fi!

Herb Alpert Is...

https://www.herbalpertis.com/

Lots of fun to watch for someone like me who grew up with Herb Alpert/TJB records playing at home. Interesting to learn several decades later that he's also a talented artist, producer and philanthropist.

Watched this a week ago and I've had a dozen catchy tunes (newly re-awakened after 55-60 years) ricocheting around in my skull ever since. But unlike many incessant earworms, not unpleasant at all.
