Binge watched the second season of Jack Ryan yesterday. Not as good as the first season, but alright, if you can overlook a few gaping plot holes. 

Finished it as well.  I agree.  Some of the sequences and locations reminded me of Clear and Present Danger.

MNEELEY490, I'm sorry for what happened to your son. There just is no evidence that autism is caused by vaccination, even with any of the now removed additives. Does this mean that vaccinations are 100% safe? Absolutely not. Any medical treatment has its side effects and some of them can be devastating. However, you can look all those up and weigh the statistics and data for yourself. But you will not find any mention of autism. This is the most recent study out of many:

Measles, Mumps, Rubella Vaccination and Autism: A Nationwide Cohort Study

Just started Season 3 of Glitch.  I think I know what you mean TOM.  I’m losing sight of the plot lines.

If you are going to suspend disbelief, then I’d wish they’d spend more time exploring the premise of getting a second chance.   

It's what happened to the at first interesting Mr Robot. When the second season started all I could think is, what the hell is going on?

But they ended the second season of Mr Robot pretty strongly, don't you think?

I don't know if this was to me, but I couldn't make it. Some of these new-fangled programs are a little to much for me to keep up with.

The greatest show on televisions (as Squirrely Dan might say), and certainly the most juvenile, is from Canada. No, not the beloved Shitt's Creek, but the demented Letterkenny. Meth heads, hockey jocks, hick farmers who never farm, and Natives all speaking this strange vernacular which requires, at least for this American, subtitles on.

I like Bill Maher. There are a few things about him I don't like. One is his anti-science, anti-modern medicine views. Today, in his opening interview, he outed himself as an anti-vaxxer. If anyone has children in high school or college who'd like to do a report on logical fallacies, his comments could fill pages. You'd could fill a couple of pages just on his numerous straw-man arguments.

Now I'm clutching my pearls at the horror of it.

I love Bill Maher...extremely funny.

Currently the greatest show on TV is from Canada. No, not the sublime Schitt's Creek, but Letterkenny. My friend put it best, "It's simultaneously the stupidest thing I have ever seen and the most brilliant show I've seen in a long time." That's a "hard yes."

I think even if you're from Canada it requires subtitles to be on.

I might have to give it a look. Just watching the previews have made me cringe.

We recently finished watching Mad Men and liked it a lot. Now we started Peaky Blinders which is also excellent. Great soundtrack although it's probably going to ruin Red Right Hand for me.

I could not get through Peaky. Remember Letterkenny is also the stupidest show on television. Recommend Shitt's Creek perhaps first. (Break in gently into today's Canadian humor.)

Letterkenny is really funny.

Hard yes. Ah, another person with a twisted sense of humor.

So our friends who own a local restaurant are big fans of the show.  It turned out the lead singer from the Arkells was eating with his girlfriend the other day and talk turned to the show as one of them posed as a character from it on the restaurant's social media - the guy says he is really good friends with Jared from the show and shows pics on his camera of them together.  Apparently after leaving, he came back to get my friend's phone number - the next day Jared from the show calls to thank them for being such fans of the show.  The husband doubted it was true and eventually, Jared went into character and started performing.  Anyway, apparently he is extremely nice.  How Canadian

The language on the show  is almost Shakespearean in its creation and use of  wordplay.  When they do one of their rhyming riffs, or go through the alphabet, sometimes you just shake your head in amazement. 

Wheel, snipe, celly, boys. It's not just for hockey anymore.

Just finished Cheer on Netflix.  It wasn't my choice originally, but it reeled me in quickly.  Inspiring and dark simultaneously.  These are not the cheerleaders of my youth.  Amazing athleticism and dedication by these young people.  But...  man.  They take a hell of a beating.
