I don't have Cable, or Netflicks etc but I know something about some of the shows to keep up with interesting stuff.
So on Broadcast TV the new shows I'm watching are Manifest, God Friended Me and at least one other. I drop in on The Blacklist from time to time. Watch the NCIS stuff.
I'm glad that Timeless got a 2 hour movie wrap up after it was canceled.
Love that they have brought back Murphy Brown.


I still seriously recommend "Person of Interest";4 full seasons and a half last season 5.

It melds interesting crime drama with AI, and the US government in what turned out to be a quite prescient season (3?), and then ratchets it up way further! The ensemble acting is stellar in both the big and meta arcs, as well as the characters growing personal relationships. It asks some pressing questions in our tech world, and also has great comedic moments. It's a bit of a slow burn at first; the characters are getting to know each other and pieces are being put in place. You won't be disappointed if you stick with it. Go watch!

I liked that reboot, too. Especially the relationship between Murphy and her son Avery .

Regarding your mention of "God Friended Me", I've heard a few good things about that one, too. I did like the last show Brandon Micheal Hall was in, "The Mayor"-it didn't last long, unfortunately, but I thought it was cute. So maybe I should give his new show a look.

He did, yes, at the end of the second-to-last episode of the season, but he returned from his assignment all right in the season finale . He and Murphy celebrated the new year together.

Yeah stage 4 pancreatic cancer no less....doesn't sound good.

I still hold him personally responsible for not getting called to go on the show after passing the audition/test years ago, but hope for the best for him.

I give Trebek shit for many things, but I can't even imagine the show without him.

Will Ferrell is the only logical replacement.

Legit excited for the new season of The Good Fight. I'm too impatient to wait the 12-13 weeks it'll take for the season to air fully so I can sign up for CBS All Access and binge it ... I may sign up for it with the premiere and just suck up the $9 a month.

I mean, how is this upcoming guest role description not worth it?

"Michael Sheen’s utterly deranged guest turn as the scenery-chewing, substance-abusing, Roy Cohn–worshipping lawyer Roland Blum. "

Cori, you still watch drag race? I still love some Vanjie, but I won’t be mad if Yvie wins. In fact I’ll probably be all YAY GO DENVER acting like i’m from here or some shit just because I’ve seen her perform a handful of times since I’ve been here.

Watched the first season of The Deuce this week. It totally feels like a modernly produced version of The Wire, but different subject matter. I can’t remember the context but someone even had a McNulty “the fuck did I do?” line and it made me laugh.

The OA, Part II:

Another brilliant season, and I loved the expansion of the world and mythology. Great use of the San Francisco location and co-lead character Kareem. And as strange as last season was, this just doubled-down on the insanity. The nightclub scene with the giant octopus is something David Lynch would kill Laura Dean to come up with. And the finale's last twist is one of the greatest WTF moments in TV history.

But as before, it's not just a bunch of weird stuff with no point to it. The creators have big hearts and it's their empathy for people experiencing trauma that makes thsi as powerful as it is.

Hoping they get approved for a third season.
