Is this another shot at Star Wars? If so, it was subtle and understated and I respect that.

I guess the streaming world finally caught up with Dwayne Johnson. Just watched Jumanji 2, Electric Bugaloo. Highly, highly entertaining. Red head was pure smoke. Would watch again.

Been watching season 2 of Jessica Jones the last couple of days. I'm not finding it as interesting as season 1, which is bad because they took forever to get this season done.

It gets worse IMHO. Maybe it's a required storyline but it's bad.

Anybody watching Flint Town on Netflix? It's an 8-part documentary series that follows the city police department on calls and shit. The opening scene is some dude in an MSU hoodie who gets shot and killed in the street. Pretty gripping so far.

Anybody watching "The Looming Tower" I've watched all the episodes so far and I don't know how I feel about it. All of it just still feels so close. I've looked up some of the characters and think they are portrayed kind of unfairly, which... it's not a documentary so they can do what they want, but again, this stuff is so fresh in my mind still so I have a hard time separating the show from the reality. Alec Baldwin as George Tenet is... not good.

Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.

That would be another reason I haven't heard of it. I lost HBO when I cut the cord a couple of months ago. No plan on picking up a stand alone subscription until the last GoT season arrives.

I thought I saw the first episode is free, but maybe you don't want to try that, in case you like it. Wink

Absurd premise? Pylon, have you watched any other TV shows lately, or are you just a documentary viewer? Wink
Just about everything on TV relies on an absurd premise. My wife loves Hawaii 5-0, talk about absurd.
