Endeavor. Prequel to Inspector Morse.

 

Prime Suspect Tennison.

 

If you like the Brit crime shows they have some really good ones.

 

Also, DCI Banks.

Wife and I have been watching season 1 of Blood, a murder mystery that takes place within a family. Just 6 episodes and available on Prime only until the end of this month. Very well done. Filmed in Ireland.

Clark Duke directs (1st feature) and co-stars. I really like his quirky characters (Last Movie Star, I'm Dying Up Here) and this was no exception. Also has Liam Hemsworth, Eden Brolin (barrel racer from Yellowstone), John Malkovich and Vince Vaughn. 

Really liked this movie and could watch it again.  Great characters, story and music for the trifecta. And it's free!

Watched “The Last Narc” about Camarena and the cartels.

Seems like Narcos Mexico was pretty accurate.

I wonder why the creators of Narcos Mexico felt the need to replace Hector Berrellez with the Walt Breslin character they created? Berrellez is a fucking badass and his story is compelling as fuck.

Been watching the Eco Challenge this weekend. It’s over produced with not enough focus on the event, but it has still been an interesting watch so far.

I watched the 20 mins of the 1st episode. I am hoping they spend so much time on the teams for "character development" and more race as we move along....

They don’t, it stays team/people focused all the way through. They show more of it as they go, but I would much rather see a behind the scenes documentary that focuses on the race. It was still a good watch, but you could start a drinking game around a few things non race related and get toasted because they spend so much time on them.

Ha.  Watching it now.  Barry (frat boy) looked kind of familiar.  Now I know why.  It's Juston Street.

eco challenge

Spoiler

I liked the series especially with being able to watch the elite athletes and more regular teams.

i simultaneously loved and hated watching the team with the Alzheimer’s patient. Maybe he felt some sense of accomplishment but they were dragging him the last couple days while he was in excruciating pain. I felt the son was practically abusing his dad but not calling it quits sooner.

Finished up the worlds toughest race show. I think the show finally hit its stride in the last episode.

random thoughts. 

  • I understand episode limitations with 50+ teams on the course, but filming some teams at the end showed there were good people, characters and stories that they missed.
  • Bear Grylls is ok as the host but i would prefer to see him embed in the non competitive teams for a leg instead of being in the helicopter. Not to help them but provide commentary to the audience.
  • in some ways, the top teams could be dull as they were machines marching practically nonstop through the course. While it’s good to see the top teams, being embedded with more average people is better.  They also spent too much time with the ALS guy, team of older men, and the guy with his 2 daughters. All of those stories should be included but we had too much air time with them.
  • the race itself should do a better job of weeding people out who can’t get through to the first camp.

looking forward to future season. Next years race is planned for Patagonia.

If he's in it, I'm out. He's the definition of overrated "talent".

He really didn’t play a big part in the overall show. There were a few cringe worthy parts with him like the backflip out of the helicopter, but I didn’t have a big issue with him.

I kept waiting for it to really take off, but it just never did. I did wait through the entire movie though, so I guess it was watchable.

Arkansas sucked. Acting seemed off and low budget film quality. Agree cast was there.

Anyone else have the problem that Amazon keeps recommending shows that you've already seen thru Amazon? 

That and they will recommend shows that I need a separate subscription for after watching a prime show. They need to keep it separate. Tired of getting fooled because I don't have an ACORN sub.

The filmmaker is a lifelong friend of mine. I’m really glad people are watching it. His previous doc, Operation Odessa, is terrific as well.

Seems like they should know. 

Kinda like all the emails, postcards, phone calls, and text messages reminding me of the census. Don’t you assholes already know that I’ve done it...!

Your friend’s work is top notch. Both docs are excellent.

I just learned they made a TV series in the 80’s that was a prequel to Casablanca. David Soul played Rick. I think it lasted 5 episodes and is available on Amazon. Sounds awful. Must watch.

Just watched the “Rewind” documentary last night and holy shit that was completely devastating. Very similar to Capturing the Friedmans, so if you liked that you will probably like this.

Been watching The Bureau (french with english subtitles) season 1 on prime. I'm way late to this series but it's the most amazing spy show I've ever seen. So fucking good.

The Battle of Pussy Willow Creek is a kind of cheesy documentary in the Ken Burns style.  But the story it tells is very entertaining.  A real life story of 4 misfits who come together and prevail in one of the most significant battles of the Civil War.  As you watch it, it will be self apparent why this was left out of the high school history textbooks.

I got bored last week and watched an episode of the Tick. It’s one of the stupidest shows I’ve ever seen, but I can’t stop watching it. There are only two seasons and I’m almost finished.

Spoon!

Been watching I’m Dying Up Here, based on the comedy store in the 70’s.  Pretty good show that was showtime originally.  Only two seasons and only on Prime till Oct 1st I think.

That was a Jim Carrey project and I thought it was very good. Gave a pretty inside view of what comic life was like. Brad Garrett is finominole.

Very good low-budget aliens-in-the-sky movie set in 1950s small town.

Saw this a couple of months ago and really liked it.  Had a twilight zone feel to it.  It was unique and eerie.
