Amazon Prime - watching The Hunters. Have one more episode to go. I am a little disappointed in the sound. When Pacino speaks, it comes across as muffled and at time we can't make out what he is saying. Turned the bass down all the way, no help. Tried thru the TV, no better.

Finished season 3 of 13 Reasons Why. Not as good as season 1.

I need to rewatch The Revenant and Hateful 8. Those 2 will take up a day right there.

I just watched Spence Confidential. It was really good.

I also enjoyed Six Underground.

I watched the first season of Locke and Key with my 14 year old. It was surprisingly good and we burned through the season in 2 days.

Spenser Confidential was good. Big Marky Mark fan. Dude has just blown up over the year. I am a big fan of Shooter. I think I have watched that 20+ times. Whenever it is on and I am flipping channels, I gotta stop.

Deepwater Horizon was about my wife's 2nd cousin's husband (and the tragedy of course). The husband was a consultant for the movie and he and his wife (the cousin) got to spend time with Wahlburg and Kate Hudson). The cousin said Hudson was a bitch.

By original I take it you mean the Kirk and Spock version? Just asking because there's been so many. haha

As another sci-fi fan, I'm into the second season of Altered Carbon on Netflix. Awesome show. Also highly recommend The Expanse on Amazon if you have it. That show just has amazing writing.

Very much enjoyed The Expanse. I had a hard time getting into Altered Carbon.

I’ve gone back and started watching Firefly again too.

CBS All Access has a first month free deal going. Enough time to binge watch Picard and cancel before the first bill.

Tiger King on Netflix is completely strange ... not really a documentary but sort of ... and everyone in it is their own special flavor of f'd up

a mind blowing fact the show presented - there are more tigers in captivity in the US than there are in the wild over the rest of the earth ... and if the characters in this show are a true representation, it is kind of sad that those keeping them don't really seem to have the tigers as their priority

If you like Tiger King, then you will probably also like, Don’t F*ck With Cats.. Just as bizarre documentary about how a bunch of Internet folk witness a guy killing a couple of kittens on Facebook. They try to hunt him down and it gets to be super bizarre. Many twists and turns.

Also,Molly’s Game about Olympic Skier Molly Bloom who after her skiing career hosts high stakes poker games and gets busted by the FBI (and no that is not a spoiler, that happens at the beginning of the movie).

I didn't necessarily like Tiger King ... was kind of like watching a gruesome accident where you don't necessarily want to watch but can't stop

Molly's Game was excellent
