So I started rewatching The Larry Sanders Show.

I missed it on its first run, but I used to watch it on Bravo, back when Bravo was a thing. Actually, I once had a shoulder operation (rotator cuff) and lay in bed for weeks, and the highlight of the day was two Larry Sanders episodes, back to back, at noon. I clung to them like a drowning man clinging to a life preserver. Great show.

It's so weird watching it again - the cultural references are SO old (Dan Quayle jokes!?) and the celebrities are so young, and from another era. It's like stepping into a time machine. And it's so cynical, almost mean-spirited. Also very funny. And the celebrity sightings are so trippy.

I don't know that I'll re-binge the entire thing, but I might.

I have started watching the show 'Dead Like Me.' My wife said we watched it when it came out in 2003. It is about a young woman who dies by getting hit by a toilet seat from the Mir space station. When she dies, she becomes a grim reaper and collects souls from people in Seattle, Washington. I have only watched the first two episodes, but I like its weird humor.

You can't get there from here, because when you get there you're still here and here is now there.

I remember that show from when it was first shown. It was really a lot of fun. You should enjoy it, Roland.

I am just watching Crime Scene Kitchen now. Teams examine a kitchen to discover what has been baked in the kitchen and then reproduce it.

After a bit of a break, finally finished Russian Doll on Netflix. Gets a bit darker in the late game and also more confusing. Still a pretty good show, though. Natasha Lyonne and Charlie Barnett are excellent in the lead roles (Lyonne got Emmy nominations as both star and co-writer) and the supporting cast is pretty strong, too. Still not sure how they are going to get a second series out of it, though. They did seem (it's hard to tell since the ending is a bit weird) to wrap things up.

Oh, and supporting player Jeremy Bobb gets the award "Most Likely To Play Jack Nicholson In a Biopic". I mean, seriously, had this been made in the seventies, I would have thought it was Jack playing the part.

I'm watching Lovecraft Country on HBO Max and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. It has some really strong actors in it.

The main characters have to survive racism in the 1950s and supernatural monsters. I know it's not going to be for everyone, but I think it's far better than some have given it credit for. I was sad to hear they aren't doing a Season 2. I read that it's because the first season was based on a book and they couldn't get a script together good enough to go ahead with another season. A shame really.

I watched the series and have read the book. The series is very well done. Maybe they will revisit the idea of a second season at some point.

Now I'm watching "The White Lotus" on HBO. It has a great cast and so far it is amusing me and keeping me entertained.

I was already eyeing the book on my library's Overdrive when the series was announced. Might stiill read it at some point but doubt I'll see the show. HBO is weird in Canada because HBO Canada is actually part of the Bell Canada group so HBO Max is largely replaced by Bell's own Crave streaming service. Whereas Amazon Prime and Netflix still have their own operations in Canada.

I've started watching The 100 foot Wave on HBO. It's about a surfer, Garrett McNamara seeking the ultimate big wave.

It's terrifying to watch at times but fascinating as well.

Still oddly obsessed with the old Larry Sanders Show. Lots of cool old celebs and cultural references, some out loud laughs, and the darkest world view I've seen in quite some time.

Re-watching the brilliant first series of The Tunnel.
A British/French adaptation of the excellent Danish/Swedish thriller, The Bridge.

I really enjoyed the series even if it was emotionally jarring and depressing. The interaction between Elise and Karl makes the show. They are great characters.

I love it. Watching him trying to farm is hilarious and educational.

Catch and Kill. Based on a podcast by Ronan Farrow based on his investigative pieces about Harvey Weinstein.

Riveting but so much of it makes me heartsick. I think most women have met a man like Weinstein at some point in their lives. So it's not for everybody, but the research and timeline are eye-opening.

You are absolutely right. The Bridge had that same chemistry which made it work very well.
There was also a German/Polish interpretation called The Pass. Unfortunately, that one was not so memorable. It didn't come close to the other two.
