    I've read all the Bosch books and the Lincoln Lawyer books so have been thinking of getting on Amazon.

    Season 1 is fantastic. Season 2 not so much, IMO.

    Yes, it is very true.

    I was disappointed with the first episode of 'The Young Pope.' I was anticipating more.

    Yeah, it was odd and disconnected.

    Watched Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events over the weekend. A marked improvement over the movie.
    That's not saying much.

    Let me put it this way:

    The first six episodes are almost as good as the books they are adapting. The seventh and eighth episodes are better than the book.

    Anyone else watching TABOO on FX (or BBC)?

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3647998/
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taboo_(2017_TV_series)

    I think it is exceptional!

    Tom Hardy was damn good in The Revnant, but he is powerful in this show.

    Riverdale. Saw epi 1, last night, It's a bit too much Teeny bopper... ala original 90210 (complete with Luke Perry) but rather good.

    Tom Hardy was great in 'Locke,' a movie filmed almost entirely in his X-5 as his life is coming apart on his cell phone.

    God help me but I am hooked on a really melodramatic soap opera from Australia, 'A Place to Call Home.' Picture 'Dallas' on a big ranch in post-war Australia. The secretly gay brother! A baby swap! Mom hates her son's lover because she's a Jew! The other brother is impotent and shooting himself up with testosterone ... until a real woman comes along! The dead former husband is miraculously found! And that's all in one episode. It streams on Acorn through my Roku. Cool period cars, though:

    Hated every second of that film. Call me a simpleton if you want, but it bored me to death.

    The Riverdale I saw last night was episode 2 unless you have a different schedule. It is kind of an Archie comics meets Twin Peaks. I haven't read an Archie comic book in over 50 years. I understand they are different now.

    Not often but they have a really cool late '40s Ford sorta El Camino in almost every episode, a Holden Ute. Might even be this one:

    Told the story before but the Archie creator was friends with Dean Stockwell's parents. They were actors and Stockwell's mother was Betty Veronica Stockwell. No, his dad wasn't Archie Jughead.

    It was Thursday and E01.... As Twin Peaks, It actually reminded me of Desperate Housewives season 1, when it was excellent.

    When I fell off a 40 ft cliff in Green River Wyo. in 1961 I spent a month in Methodist Hospital and one of my Aunt's brought in my cousin's comic book collection. It was a suitcase full of comic books Everything from Superman to Archie and I read them all. But never since. However I'm enjoying Riverdale, it doesn't look or feel anything like the comics and it's connection is superficial but it's still interesting how all the players are portrayed... And how things like Pop's Drive-In are inserted. It's a lot more interesting than the comics ever were to me.

    I stumbled onto Santa Clarita Diet last night on Netflix starring Drew Barrymore. No spoilers but I'll let you all wonder about this one.

    I'm still watching "The Travelers" on Netflix. It reminds me of those dreams where you get real close to getting what you want before it get snatched away from you at the last moment.

    This thread was meant for me, because I hadn't been watching any of these programs.

    I just watched Season 1 of "Sneaky Pete" on Amazon and really enjoyed it.

    Next on my list are "Better Call Saul" Season 1 on Netflix and "Goliath" on Amazon.

    All 3 were good choices. See if you can find 'Mad Dogs' on Amazon.

    Did you watch Breaking Bad? It's not a prerequisite but it fills in a lot of gaps
