Anyone here watch Parts Unknown? I'll admit it was Anthony Bourdain's passing that reignited my interest in the show. I just finished watching a bunch of episodes on Netflix, and caught the season 11 opener filmed in West Virginia. Personally, I think his outlook became more nuanced in the last decade. I remember his Travel Channel series, and he sometimes came off as insufferably snobbish. But he consistently knocked it out of the park with Parts.
Also caught some of the new Great British Baking Show episodes on Netflix. I like Noel Fielding, but really, really miss Mary Berry, and Mel and Sue.
Skwigg, the Great British Baking Show is truly not the same without that core group of Mary, Mel and Sue. I miss Mel and Sue's puns, and Mary's occasionally sharp comments. I like Noel Fieding, but agh, one good host is not enough to make up for three departed ones!
We are watching the new season of Orange is the New Black and I love it! I found last season really dragged. The whole season just revolved around the prison riot and it was too drawn out in my opinion. This season it's back to the story of prison life (the gangs, the drugs, the strange dynamics between guards and inmates) and it SO MUCH BETTER!
We also watched the trailer for Jack Ryan a couple nights ago. Wholey cow that was great! There were a few elements that I was able to predict quite easily but the action was good and it was intense. It was like watching a movie! I'm looking forward to seeing how that show progresses. Hopefully it lives up to the first episode.
Does anyone here watch Big Brother? We watch it and love it lol. This season has been a really good one.
I just finished Ozark season two. It was twisty and crazy and fun. Iím trying to decide what to watch next. Jack Ryan on Amazon is near the top of the list, but Atypical and Iron Fist both have season two available on Netflix this week.
Iíve watched the first two episodes of Mayans on FX. Itís the Sons of Anarchy spinoff. It does have a very similar feel and many familiar faces. Itís hard to tell yet though. I remember not much liking the first episode or two of Sons, but about five episodes in I was totally hooked. Iím hoping Mayans grabs me in the same way.
