I'm rewatching "The Good Place" with my brother. It is, bar none, the best American comedy ever made. Really. I'll put money up against the classics- it's better than Get Smart, Hogan's Heroes, The Honeymooners, Happy Days, The Flintstones, The Monkees, The Simpsons, Cheers, M.A.S.H., Friends, Seinfeld, Scrubs, 30 Rock, and even (my personal favorite of the new crop) Community.

It's got comedy, it's got romance, it has tragedy. It easily equals M.A.S.H. in delivering laughs along with episodes that will bring tears to your eyes (while also delivering laughs- seriously, episodes where I almost choke on my food from laughter and experience severe allergy attacks coincide so often I'm amazed I haven't died this month) and bypasses M.A.S.H. in that it's a crash course in philosophy. If you have Netflix and aren't watching, watch now. Season 1 is a slow burn- not to say it's not funny, but it doesn't quite reach the depth (which is to say heights) the show will bring you to.

Recently watched the final season of Vikings (Amazon) & a miniseries called The Queen’s Gambit (Netflix). Thoroughly enjoyed both.

Slowly making my way through season 3 of Mad Men. (Amazon)

The wife and I broke down and paid for a subscription to Peacock ($5/mo) so we could watch Yellowstone - it’s like Longmire crossed with m The Sopranos, and Kevin Costner is the head of what amounts to the Montana mafia. Great show!

Tonight we watched a couple episodes of the new season of Cobra Kai on Netflix.

My wife and I went through that whole series years ago when Netflix was strictly a DVD mail delivery service. Enjoyed it, but in typical JJ Abrams fashion there's so many twists and turns that what you're watching at the end bears little resemblance to what you started watching :lol:

I recall Jennifer Garner was rather easy on the eyes too 8)

I just finished watching the miniseries, The Pacific. My Dad served over there in WWII. Very intense but I recommend it.
The wife and I started watching this a couple days ago. We're halfway through it. Very well-produced. I too recommend it.

Alias and Fringe are the best things Abrams did. Typically his projects all start off great but then dither into convoluted nonsense. Somehow both of those shows found a way to walk the wire to a satisfying end. The cast of Alias was fantastic. Garner, obviously, but all the characters contributed and could make a show run even without a plot. Fringe suffered from that because everyone was forgettable except for John Noble's Walter Bishop, who frankly carried everyone to the finish line. The only characters that could do something close to that on L O S T was Hurley and Benjamin Linus, but they were side characters, which kind of highlighted the problem...everyone was a side character on that show. The characters couldn't overcome the horrible un-satisfying ending.

WandaVision (Disney+)
Bosch (Amazon)
Mad Men (Amazon)

I had stopped watching The Walking Dead a few years ago when a certain evil character killed off two main cast members in a rather gruesome fashion in a single episode. I've heard tidbits about the show from coworkers since then, and I recently picked up where I left off in Season 7 via Netflix.

Haven't watched any TV shows for quite awhile - was thinking of checking out Narcos, Breaking Bad, or the Wire if they're on Netflix.

Anyone have any recommendations?

Yeah, those 3 are all pretty great if you're into the gangster thing (which I am).
