The Boss and I started watching The Righteous Gemstones a few days ago. A whole lot of confusing elements (well, that might be my attention span) but enough moments of cringe-y comedy to keep us invested.
Great show IMHO.
A whole lot more wiener than I normally expect from tv.
Yet still very little.
Hey, ladies, here's some fat guy shriveled dick!
Yeah no ego on that one.

Been watching this of late.

Incredible show, as is Fielder's follow up, the Rehearsal.

CoziTV had a 50th Anniversary special for the show Emergency! last night. They interviewed Johnny and Roy from the show and a bunch of firefighters who talked about how much the show influenced them and how it impacted the start of the paramedic/ems programs across the country.

A couple weeks ago, The Boss and I walked past a fire station and I wondered aloud whether they had a little guy in there who did the cooking.

There's a fire station between my house and the local grocery store. I often see them in there stocking up. I saw inside once too pretty nice digs to spend your time away from home.

We have one about four blocks away, on a fairly significant street, so we get a few fire trucks going by, around five houses to the south, every day. Enough so that the cats don't respond to the sirens.

We consumed a lot of media this weekend as MBH (my better half) had out patient hernia surgery on Friday, so I used her recuperative weekend to not do much except watch TV with her.

Vengeance - Written, directed & staring B.J. Novak (from The Office). This was a really good movie. Well written, smart.
The Bear - I also loved this one. A bit tense at times, but the characters are so well written and then skillfully brought to life.
Glass Onion - Fun, silly, with a great ensemble cast. It's nothing more than that and doesn't try to be.
Alaska Daily - This one was lousy. We made it through one episode. Felt ham fisted and sloppy and was full of tired tropes. Hillary Swank was almost unbearable to watch.
Fleishman is in Trouble - Undecided on this one. Jesse Eisenberg plays the same character in everything he's in. We watched one hour long episode that felt like it was two hours long. It never went anywhere, but the final moments left us thinking that maybe it could get more interesting. We might go back to this one.
Inventing Anna - An intriguing true story, but like Alaska Daily - the main character (also a journalist) is so insufferable and obnoxious.
Wild Indian - This had an interesting premise (and it was shot in Wisconsin), but ultimately fell flat. I think it tried to tell a story about generational trauma within the Native American community, but it was not effected. Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi have tackled the same themes with their wonderful Reservation Dogs and have done so it a far more impactful, skillful way.

FWIW, I loved Fleishman. I loved the book it's based on as well.

My son swears by the Bear, I'll give it a go one of these days. Glass Onion was good, Craig's accent seemed less horrible. Im a Swanker so Ive thought about watching that show but the premise doesnt grab me. Fleishman is in Trouble I probably would watch if Eisenberg wasn't in it, the sameness of his characters is a hindrance.

We've recently blown through Dead to Me, Nathan for You, Three Pines, The Peripheral, Hunters (season 2). I can recommend all of them.

We'll probably give it a chance. First episode was a bit slow, but we also did not hate it.

I didn't know there was a season 2. We'll definitely get this on the list.

I'm also watching George & Tammy. It's very well done, but depressing...

The Boss watched that; I caught bits and pieces. Very depressing from what I saw.
