    Finally season 3 is coming for "The Boys" on prime. Best superhero series made yet.

    "Kids in the Hall" are back also. I need to check them out again.

    Almost done with "Outer Range" so far has been decent.

    I wanted to like that one, but didn't make it passed the first episode. Dude finds a giant perfect bottomless hole on his property, and tells no one? Tries to put a tarp on it. Meh. He would have gotten on his horse and gone back home at warp speed to tell everyone. Stick his had in it without a clue what it is? Ya, no. All that ruined it for me. Unless they explain his behavior well, I lost all interest. Very bad writing in my view.

    Concept and visuals were well done, cool concept of cowboy life meets super natural, terrible writing.

    You have to watch further to find out how he and the hole are connected. Give it another shot.

    But do they adequately explain his behavior on discovering the hole? Cuz no one would behave like that, and such poor writing ruins it bigly for me. It kills my interest in anything after that.

    They don't outright say why he acted the way he did but you get the reason through things comjng to light. Trying not to spoil it.

    I just about fell off the couch laughing the first time I saw the “F word” (crime scene) scene. The lie detector scene was pretty funny too, curiously I remember reading a court decision after it aired that said it wasn’t legal to use a copy machine in place of a polygraph. Another scene I enjoyed was Omar’s court scene. He starts out helping the bailiff with the crossword (so he ain’t stupid) and then, when on the stand the defense attorney accuses him of being immoral because he preys on the misery of others... “Just like you... I’ve got the shotgun, you’ve got the briefcase, but it’s all in the game, right?..”

    During the copy machine / polygraph, I was laughing so hard I almost passed out.

    Several years ago I watched an interview of David Simon, who created the “The Wire”. He said at first Baltimore was glad they were there (& hiring a lot of locals) but after the first season they weren’t so happy about it. I guess the series was too real.

    Eventually yes. It's weird good and worth a watch.
