What the Bear is Watching - June Edition

With the weather being so nice I would rather spend time outside on the patio. I still bring the TV outside on occasion, but sometimes the wind makes that an iffy proposition. I usually watch something right after I shut off my work computer in the early afternoon. It's either that or watch "Judge Judy" *lol*

"Schitt's Creek" - We finally finished the series! All but the last season is available on Netflix. The last season is on the Pop Network which we have on cable. I can see why the show has been given rave reviews from the LGBT community. The series ends with a gay wedding which is one of the most sweetest (gay or straight) I have seen portrayed on TV. The total acceptance of the couple by the town is inspiring.

"Peaky Blinders" - Netflix - I wrote about this show a few years ago. When it popped up on my "recommended" list on Netflix, I thought it must be a weird British comedy. I then saw a review that it was an extremely well-done show about a British crime family right after WWI. I was hooked. I'm just finishing up the latest season. Still good stuff, but I'm fearing that they're drifting into "style over substance."

"Space Force" - This popped up in my Netflix recommendations, and I thought, "Wow! Steve Carell and John Malkovich? Cool!" I watched one episode and went, "Meh." That was pretty much what I read in reviews. Most were of the ilk "so much wasted talent!" That pretty much sums it up. The premise is there, but the writing is just awful. There have been a few *lol* moments, but they are few and far between. The show then also tries to be sickeningly sweet at times. Nah. Maybe if they get better writers the show can reach its potential.

"Bosch" - We finished up another season of our favorite detective in LA. While I like the show overall and the characters, I really hate the method of storytelling. It's very disjointed, and they try to cram too many storylines into one season. Having read some of the books, I see that instead of perhaps telling the story from one or two novels, they grab 3 or 4 elements from various books and try to assemble them into a coherent story. I'm frequently forgetting who characters are since there is so much going on. They also use a lot of authentic police lingo which adds realism but also confusion if you have no idea what the heck they're talking about.

"Monty Python's Flying Circus" - They have all of the episodes on Netflix. I'm having a wonderful time reliving my childhood re-watching them all.
