The principal characters and the plot in the first episode of the first season were all laid out in the short story "Fire in the Hole," one of nine stories in the Elmore Leonard 2003 book, "When the Women Came Out to Dance." This book has been retitled "Fire in the Hole and Other Stories. Highly recommended and may be available from your library as well as for purchase from on-line sources. If you like the show you should check out the Elmore Leonard oeuvre in both books and the movies based on them (Out of Sight, Get Shorty, Jackie Brown, and 3:10 to Yuma are among the best)

We just watched the original six-episode mini-series Roots based on Alex Haley's novel. First time for me since it came out in the late-1970s, first time for my wife ever!
Two things about it surprised me:
- it really only traces three generations; in the final episode Koonta Kinte's grandson Chicken George is still alive, his granchildren have barely been acknowledged, it's still the 19th Century and the Civil War has only just ended. Somehow I had misremembered that the show traced all the generations from Koonta Kinte up to Alex Haley, but there's just a brief 30-second epilogue where Haley names all the relatives in his lineage that bring the family up to modern times.
- the incessant use of the N-word must've really freaked the living crap outta folks in 1977! It's almost axiomatic that a show about slavery in America is going to include that epithet, but I definitely didn't remember hearing it that frequently when I watched the original show on television 40-something years ago.

My wife was super-impressed by the makeup artistry, how the folks who aged genuinely looked like they were older, not just wearing goop on their faces. Turns out that was courtesy of Academy Award-winning makeup effects creator Stan Winston.

Decided to rewatch the 5 seasons of "The Wire." I already know that is 10+ and is well worth another viewing. Watched the first 4 episodes from Season 1 last night and will continue on Sunday night; Saturday is set aside for College Football.

We just finished up the last season of Goliath. This series is typical of many series, where after a few seasons, they run out of things to write about, so you wind up with overly-long scenes of people staring into blank space, supposedly so you can read their angst (?), just to stretch out and episode without adding any real content. Billy Bob Thornton, as an actor, is good for the lead role in this series, but the shining star here is, Nina Arianda. Her portrayal of her character was spot-on, and she breathed a lot of life into what would otherwise be another sluggish attempt at capturing a moody, noir-infused series. I'll give it 3/5 stars.

I am sure that Squid Game got mentioned in here somewhere. You hear all these glammy reviews and then can't even make it through the first episode. /frown

I have a thing about any movie or show that is dubbed. Drives me nuts. Mostly because I am half deaf and can't read lips alongside watching. Captioning gets on my nerves as well, so...

Saw half of Get Back last night. Will finish this weekend. Pretty interesting watching them developing the songs like Get Back and I, Me, Mine.

Succession is great 8/10. A smorgasbord of dysfunctional (but rich) characters and good plotting and twists. Top notch acting.

Ok, just finished the first season.

Was AWESOME. Really fun and entertaining show. Cast seemed to have fun with it as well. I hope there is a season 2.

I know! The more people that watch, the higher the chance there will be season 2!

Finally finished watching every episode, all seven seasons, in order, of The West Wing.

Holy crap what an excellent television series! 10/10
Great writing, great acting, genuinely engaging & provocative drama with just the right dose of humor.
And what a damning condemnation of how stupid both television, and White House staff, have become since.
Actually what was most surprising was how so many of the conflicts they examined in 1999-2006 are still happening today.
