Trending today is a Korean series titled "Vicenzo", which indeed is a must watch series. The story is about a man, member of mafia, whose agenda is to redeem the old building situated in the center plaza. However, problem encountered are the tenants who are actively doing their business there and a company named Babel Group, who on the otherhand would like to demolish and construct a new building. Absolutely 10/10.

But le Carre was a better writer, while Ludlum's forte was creating good characters and plots -- but he was a terrible writer. Movie adaptations of Ludlum novels are usually better than the books.
I just finished the six episode series and highly recommend it.

Restarted watching White Collar on Netflix - such a good, light hearted romp of a crime show.

We are re-watching True Blood. It's all over the place. I don't want to say bad, but it sure isn't good. Sort of along the lines of an actually R rated daytime drama, with vampires instead of black widows....lol.

I'm rewatching Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency on Hulu. It was originally broadcast on BBC America about 5 years ago. Hard to describe what it is. Partially goofy, funny and violent at times.

Finally finished it up, every single ST:TNG episode in chronological order through the Season 7, Episode 26 finale! Man, talk about a labor of love...that was almost painful.
But fun too. Man, Worf is a hoot! what's Michael Dorn been up to these last 30-something years?

None of the recent series I'd like to watch are available yet on Amazon Prime, so I've been re-watching The X-Files in syndication. I watched the entire series, start to finish when it originally aired and never missed an episode (although I had to set up the VCR a few times). And I've rewatched every episode at least three times over the years, although the last time I watched was a decade ago.

I'm surprised how well it holds up now. It doesn't feel dated at all. Can't say that about some shows I enjoyed in the first run, but which didn't hold up well over time (such as Miami Vice).

If anything some of the episodes are more relevant now than ever, particularly the political, cultural and superstition oriented stories. In some respects it seems as if today's obsession with paranoid conspiracies was actually instigated by The X-Files, with people who don't realize they're simply reinventing X-Files plots... which themselves were derived from, inspired by or lifted outright from earlier generations of conspiracy theories, and myths about UFOs.

Been watching Formula One on Netflix. I enjoy the insider views and seeing the other side of racing. Pretty cool little series. It's at 3 seasons right now and no idea if it's still ongoing.


Jupiter's Legacy- Someone trying to cash in on the success of The Boys (which is astounding, by the way). Apparently there were issues with direction and creation of this series right from the get go. The various people brought in and replaced on that end didn't make a good case for what, by all accounts, is a very tellable story. It was (thankfully) put out of it's misery right away.

Beat me to it!

We're binge-ing it right now. We're on S3, E5, and so far its been okay... just okay.

Titus Welliver is an enigma. He's truly a deadpan. His body motions are stiff and kind of weird. When he stands, his posture sucks. His shoulders are rounded and droopy, and he craned his head and neck in awkward directions to face other actors during dialog. He's a little flabby, and definitely does not fill the shoes of this lead role. I like the show, but I can't see why it has lasted for 7 seasons.

The best actors on this series in my humble opinion are: Lance Reddick (Irving), and Paul Calderon (Santiago).

The series plays out like a nighttime soap opera. The sets and scenes are weak, but I will have to say that they nail it every now and then with great background scenery, especially the nighttime view of the city from Bosch's splendid house in the hills. I love the noir aspect of this series, and I've always been fan of LA-style noir. I also like the theme music, and the music within the episodes. They nailed that part of it.

Way too much dialog - so much that its easy to get lost in it. The script writers clearly havent mastered the art of adding information to the plot without the characters beating it to death verbally. I find that if I am tired or even the slightest bit distracted, I will lose some bit if important info and need to back it up to give it a second look.

Once is a while there is comedic elements that will make me burst into laughter. Rare in this show, but fun when it happens.

There is also a lot of scenes in this show that challenge my sense of reality, and the world as we know it. Its just so hard to swallow that the big wheels in the government of the city of LA have a personal interest in speaking directly to Bosch. In real life there would be many layers of asskissers between the mayor and Bosch, or even the police commander, Irving, and Bosch.

Overall I rate Bosch a 3/5. Its not a must-watch, but worth it if you invest some time into it.

We're ending up the first season of House of Cards. I wasnt impressed with the first few episodes, but it started getting good by about episode 8. Kevin Spacey, regardless of what you think of him morally, is one of the finest actors you could watch. His portrayal of the character is chilling. Despite this, the series has some stupid premise and clunky mechanics to it, and I give it a hearty 6/10.

16 episodes of Combat! from a library 4 DVD disc set of the first season. I liked that show when I saw many of the episodes when they were originally broadcast in 1962-63.
Noticed many actors who were or became stars as guest stars or in the cast. Also some were or became prominent players in Hollywood. Robert Altman directed 10 of the first season's episodes, Burt Kennedy directed some and Richard Matheson wrote some of the teleplays/scripts.

Started watching Justified because someone mentioned it on here. About halfway through season two and can't believe I'd never heard of this show. Very enjoyable, really like Olyphant as an actor.
