Watched the first episode of The Old Man last night. Good stuff. But what's not to love about Jeff Bridges playing a former CIA operative gone off the grid and John Lithgow being charged with bringing him back in to face his past deeds . . .

I just saw the first 15 or so minutes. Bridges is so dang interesting to watch doing the mundane things he did (well, most were mundane). The interaction with the doctor, watching his face reveal what he's thinking and his irritability but quick alert live wire-ness too. And of course, the "old" aspect was brought out prominently. I was too sleepy to give it proper attention, but on the agenda for sure. Queue gets bigger.

Yeah, there were a few seemingly mundane scenes that are full of subtext thanks to his subtleties in performance. I really liked how he story stays focused on him going about his life in those first several scenes without cutting to the other actors. Can’t wait to watch another episode or two tonight.

It got pretty low reviews on RT but it's "Resident Evil" so I plan to watch it anyway.

So far, the best Resident Evil TV shows and movies that have stayed true to the franchise have been the animated ones.

It took me a couple episodes to engage with it, but I'm loving Severance.

The cinematography is on Breaking Bad level. It just looks sooo good. The story has huge potential, and I'm glad it's been renewed.

"You smug motherf*****"

I love John Turturro in this.

Show is so good.

Severance first season and this final season of Better Call Saul are my favorite shows on TV. Just superb writing, directing (obviously Vince Gilligan and co, but Ben Stiller, what?!), casting, and acting.

Just watched the GoT Targaryen spin-off trailer. The show definitely looks great...But, it is a little sad to not see our favorite characters that we watched grow up for almost a decade.

I just finished the first season of Severance. The season finale is one of the best hours I've seen of any show in a long time.

John Turturro's performance all season has been great, but he really took it to another level in the last episode.

Yeah, I still can't believe Ben Stiller is capable of this.

As I said in my earlier post, the cinematography on this show is probably its most outstanding feature. It takes you to another world.

Liking halo, kinda expanse ish with the futuristic sci fi, enough for a ‘big budget’ feel. Still on first couple episodes, more about the background stories than the fighting scenes. I recommend

ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING

They throw hints as to who the killer is but debunk them.

Lucy said the killer coughed. Teddy's new lover sneezed indicating he may be the killer but he was with Teddy when the killer was chasing them through the passageways.

The rash on the detective's neck implicates him.

I got him. Who you got?

Watched E1 Halo. Looks promising. I'll do some binging sometime today.

It took a few episodes to develop, but I'm fully in on The Terminal List on Prime Video. About halfway through currently.
