So for future reference...what is the Bear watching?
"Schitt's Creek" = I mentioned this in the last post. We're both really digging the quirky series. It just keeps getting better and better.
"The Good Place" - It was a recommendation from dexter_fox. I was a bit skeptical, but I gave it a shot. Dex has taste! Funny and very well done. It's from the people that brought us "30 Rock" and "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" so the comedy is spot on.
"The Kominsky Method" - Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin are outstanding in this show about 2 aging friends in L.A.
"The Tiger King" - Yes. We watched it. It's a shitshow about a trainwreck. In other words it's hard to look away once you've seen it. I told Kitty that, like it or not, it will probably become a touchstone of the the whole Covid drama as people hunkered down and watched this to the point where it became part of our collective culture.
"The Plot Against America" - An alternative history where FDR loses the election of 1940 to Charles Lindbergh who promises to keep us out of war by making a deal with Hitler. I'm digging it so far. I'm definitely liking it more than "The Man in the High Castle."
"Homeland" - I think this is the last season. OK. I've enjoyed the show for it's run (some seasons more than others). A good political thriller that has run its course.
In the "battle" between HBO late-night shows, now with no studio audiences, Bill Maher has been swinging and largely missing. John Oliver, on the other paw, has been consistently good. You can tell that Bill needs an audience to feed off of and stumbles without the feedback. John just keeps delivering his schtick successfully.
