Dexter (season five).
Jennifer Carpenter is the Rhea Seehorn of her time. She is so good on this show, should’ve been nominated for a bunch of awards.September 15, 2020 at 8:38 pm #1203709208
The show is past its peak now, season 4 was its best. But I will say the Julia Stiles season is better than some of the others to comeSeptember 24, 2020 at 9:52 pm #1203733012
“Hannibal”: How scary is it? Standout episodes? Recommendations for or against binging?September 25, 2020 at 12:26 am #1203733224
The Office. 2 episodes left to finish season 3 but i’ve seen about 25 memes + gifs already. Iconic show!September 25, 2020 at 5:27 am #1203733386
“Hannibal”: How scary is it? Standout episodes? Recommendations for or against binging?
One of my favourite shows ever. It’s disturbing throughout, but I wouldn’t describe it as ‘scary’. The obvious standout episode is the season 2 finale (widely regarded as one of the best season finales of the last decade). I think it’s great to binge as well.
For Your Consideration:

Been picking up again on The Americans (season 3). Still excellent. I can’t speak for the as of yet unseen Martindale cameo, but I can say that Lois Smith was robbed of a Guest nomination. Same goes for Frank Langella. They’re both excellent. It’s also nice to see Julia Garner in a different role from Ozark. I just wish her character’s circumstances were less horrifically creepy.

I’m watching Pen15 season 2 for the second time and its so good. Shower this with emmys next year please television academy!
Also, finally finished Homeland. That last season is really good but the coda in the finale was absolutely ridiculous.October 2, 2020 at 5:54 pm #1203754212

I started binging “Shameless” but only made it halfway through season three. Although I did like the Gallaghers, I just couldn’t continue riding along with their messed up escapades. They just wore me out, especially Lip and Fiona. It’s like they never learn so it was hard to feel sorry for them.
Today. Well, not really a binge, but I’m excited about watching “The Boys in the Band.” I’ve seen the original a few times so we’ll see – usually not a fan of remakes.October 18, 2020 at 3:43 am #1203785548
Finished Ratched. Ironically the finale and the opener are the weakest episodes but the ensemble is genuinely great.
Currently re-watching Ozark season 3 because I’m staying with some of family and one of my siblings has decided to start it. I don’t know if I can bare getting to Fire Pink 😭.

The final season of Desperate Housewives. I love this show and these women so much.October 18, 2020 at 2:32 pm #1203787000
“Emily in Paris” (season 1): Silly, insipid series that stayed in gear one for the entire season, but it’s lowkey what I needed to see at the time. Lily Collins isn’t compelling enough as a leading actress to carry an entire show on her tiny shoulders, and the supporting ensemble had no genuine standouts either.
“Coastal Elites”: Odd, yet fascinating series of monologues from Jay Roach exploring quarantined life in the “new normal” of 2020, starring Bette Midler, Daniel Levy, Issa Rae, Sarah Paulson, and Kaitlyn Dever. The standouts are Issa Rae’s segment, where she plays a former boarding school classmate of Ivanka Trump with startling realness, and Kaitlyn Dever’s segment as a frontline nurse volunteering in NYC during the covid-19 crisis. She has the connecting thread of the piece, which brings an emotional punch to the ending. I don’t know how this would be classified at the Emmys. It’s not a movie or variety. Dramatic special? Worth seeing.
“David Byrne’s American Utopia“: I’m not familiar with Byrne’s music much beyond some of Talking Head’s hits like “Once in a Lifetime” and “This Must Be the Place.” I remember the show’s performances from “SNL” last season and was greatly intrigued by them. The full show just premiered on HBO, and Spike Lee directed it. It’s thrilling and beautifully crafted. I hope it’s a significant Emmy contender next year.
“Circus of Books”: Absorbing documentary about the legendary Circus of Books bookstore in Los Angeles, California, that played a significant role in the early gay rights movement, operated by a bizarre, straight couple who had to keep their ownership of the store and creation of gay pornography secret during the Reagan administration to avoid legal prosecution. The documentary was recently Emmy-nominated for Outstanding Writing in a Nonfiction Program, and directed by the owner’s documentarian daughter, Rachel Mason. Highly recommended viewing.October 18, 2020 at 8:40 pm #1203787624
I just burned through Ted Lasso in a couple of nights. Super sweet! Turned the hackneyed ’emotionally literate Americans help uptight Brits be better’ cliche on its head with a really diverse football team/cast. I loved the idea that domineering loud people are the minority who take up space and attention from the normal, positive and non-complaining quiet majority. When Tartt stepped aside, the team were actually all really nice people, and kindness breeds kindness. Good show.
