What the Bear is Watching

Another post about what's on the tele. The first group is courtesy of albear and dexter_fox. I did a lot of binge watching with them when I visited last month. I had already hinted about some in my post from when I was there.

"Black Jesus" - (CN, Adult Swim) - Jesus comes back to earth and hangs with his homies in Compton, drinkin' 40's and smokin' weed. I was surprised how well the show is written. It really does spread the message of peace and love while adding the comic touch of life in the ghetto like in "Sanford and Son."

"The Mike Tyson Mysteries" - (CN, Adult Swim) - Mike Tyson hangs up his boxing gloves and solves mysteries (just like Scooby Doo!) with the aid of his adopted Korean daughter, the gay ghost of the Marquee of Queensbury, and a pigeon who used to be a man but was transformed by his witch ex-wife (furry points!) I have to hand it to Tyson for appearing on a cartoon that essentially makes fun of him. It's sort of like Gary Coleman appearing in "Midgets and Mascots." It's crude humor and vulgar language at its best.

"We Bare Bears" - (CN) - I call it "My Little Pony" with bears. It's just a really cute kids' show with good positive messages. The theme song is also an earworm. I was also pleasantly surprised to see some fan art in the FC Art Show this year. All I need is a panda suit (not Fresia) and I can make my own "bear stack" with Sabot and Nevada assuming the roles of Grizz and Ice Bear.

"Manhattan" - (WGN) - A show about New Mexico filmed in New Mexico. It's the story of Los Alamos in '44 and '45 as the US struggles to build The Bomb before Germany. I still have to watch Season 2, but Season 1 was pretty darn good.

"Mad Dogs" - (Amazon) - This one made the list just yesterday, but we've already binge-watched half of it. It's based on a British series with a group of Americans caught in a web of conspiracy while on vacation in Belize. I have to admit that we were drawn in to the show by the trailer which showed a killer in a cat mask. Call it serendipitous furriness. We'll probably have the series watched by the end of the weekend.

"Narcos" - (Netflix) - It's a biopic of Columbian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and the American DEA agent who pursues him. The series started off a little slow, but by mid-season, it was binge-watch time. In reading about the history of Columbia in the 80's, it seems to be a fairly accurate portrayal of what was going on in the country at the time.
