    I'm about 5 episodes into the second season of The Punisher on Netflix. Really good so far.

    Several new shows that I'm really digging. Black Monday is a fictionalized telling of the events leading up to the October 19th, 1987 stock market crash. It's an HBO show and it's very over the top with lots of language, drug use, and nudity. Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg produced and directed the first episode.....so as you can imagine......it's pretty filthy. But it's got a great cast. Lots of people that I really like. Don Cheadle is an absolutely an outrageous character and the star of the show. Only been one episode so far.

    Valley of the Boom on National Geographic has been really interesting so far. Only a six part mini-series so it doesn't get SUPER in depth, but it's about the mid-90s rise and crash of the internet start ups, along with the IPO rush. Three main stories dominate the series. Netscape and their development of the first DECENT web browser.....and their issues with Microsoft trying to ice them out. A website called The Globe that was trying to secure funding but was having trouble explaining their functionality. And then a fasinating story about some scam artist named Michael Fenne (fake name) who stole some video compression software back when streaming videos over the internet was difficult due to dial-up speeds. Turns out the compression deal didn't function that well but he rececived funding and blew $16 million on a massive party in 1999 at the MGM Grand Las Vegas with a performance lineup consisting of Chely Wright, LeAnn Rimes, Faith Hill, Dixie Chicks, Sugar Ray, Natalie Cole, KISS, Tony Bennett, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, and a reunion of The Who. He also leased the gigantic Astrovision screen in Times Square to broadcast the eight-hour live feed. That company didn't last too much longer.

    Finally....Brooklyn Nine-Nine is back on. NBC originally passed on it because they weren't sure if Samberg was going to be attached. FOX picked it up and did what they typically do with good shows and canceled it just to have NBC snag it.

    Oh, and True Detective is back. Only three episodes in but it's already looking like it's going to be far better than last season's trainwreak. They'll never match season one though.

    And I've gotten a few episodes into Sharp Objects finally. Definitely liking it. I wasn't aware until a few weeks back that Amy Adams was a performer at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater for about 3-4 years in the late 90's before she became a well known actress.

    I recently watched it. It wasn't great but I didn't think it was that bad either. I was entertained enough to keep watching it. Sounds like I'm in the minority with my opinion though.

    The Ringer: A Guide to the ‘Narcos’ Extended Universe

    Narcos comes back into our lives this weekend with another season of what’s become one of the more fascinating, adaptable series on television. What was the Pablo Escobar Show for two seasons—buoyed by an incredibly captivating performance and legit dad-bod commitment from Wagner Moura—has since left his orbit. Post-Pablo, it’s clear: The kingpins will come and go, but the white powder they peddle for hundreds of millions of dollars will remain.

    The next entry in the Narcos Extended Universe—the NEU for short—moves the action from Colombia to Mexico to trace the rise of Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo (played by Jabba the Hutt enthusiast Diego Luna) and the Guadalajara Cartel in the early ’80s (and, of course, the plucky DEA agents set on stopping them). “Narcos: Mexico,” as the fourth season is being called, is the kind of thing someone could reasonably start without watching previous Narcos seasons. It’s got more of the same tropes—dramatic cartel power plays, ridiculous narration, political corruption, copious violence, cocaína—but the setting and story are new and refreshing. It’s connected to the previous seasons as a continued depiction of cartel history—and how Mexico’s own cartel became intertwined with Colombia’s.

    With “Narcos: Mexico” arriving Friday, and with my colleague Megan Schuster and I absolutely enraptured by the NEU in all its ridiculous glory, we thought we’d dissect the universe’s idiosyncrasies, aesthetic choices, and most crucial moments: the things that are quintessentially Narcos. Whether you’re a Narcos newcomer or someone who needs a refresher before the next addictive binge, consider this your guide to the NEU. Of course, that means we’ll be diving into spoiler territory—but c’mon, the show’s loosely adapted from actual history. Is it really a spoiler if you can just look this stuff up on Wikipedia? Vámonos. —Miles Surrey

    Not surprising, I'm loving season 4. Just have one episode left.

    Finished season one of The Romanoffs on Amazon Prime. Hour and a half episodes. I enjoyed all but one of them.

    A.P. Bio and Superstore returned last week to NBC. Both good shows.

    Brooklyn Nine Nine has been great this season. One of the funniest shows on TV.

    There are at least a couple laugh out loud moments per episode. Andre Braugher as Captain Holt really steals the shows.....even though every character is utilized well and every one is able to deliver an awesome line at any given time.

    Tiny correction - Brooklyn Nine Nine has always been great.

    Speaking of Brooklyn 9-9, the season finale was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

    And Andre Braugher’s Captain Holt is one of the best characters TV has seen in a long time.

    No hyperbole. Thank you, NBC, for being smarter than FOX.
