Artie seems to be ready to pack it in, follow him on twitter and he keeps making comments that indicate his time is soon

 

 

no!  for real?  baby gorilla?!  :(

 

when he left it was the essential end of the stern show as it had been forever.  he made the show great.  jd might be the only thing entertaining on a regular basis there.  and the more they lean on takei the more boring he gets.  it was just too much with jason ellis the other day.

My wife just got me watching Fortitude on Amazon prime. Highly recommend it. Set on a small island off Norway and strange things begin happening. Has Stanley Tucci and Michael Gambon in it. I went through season 1 the past 3 days (12 episodes) and just starting season 2, which is as far as it goes to date.

i actually stopped listening recently, howard's schtick just pushed me over the top, his way of bringing people down so as to make him look superior just really wore on me.  as good an interviewer as he is, that too got old.  i love JD, Gary, Fred and Richard & Sal, the rest i could do without.  Can't stand his love affair with jason ellis, lena dunham and that whole ilk.  oh well, he had a good run in my eyes, time to move on

Just finished season two, which has Dennis Quaid in it. This is one wild show. Shamans and evil pharmaceutical company mixed into the town where everyone is usually drunk on vodka. Good times...

4 episodes into the new season of Bosch, so far it's excellent.  I could binge watch the whole season in a night if I had the time...Good recommendation Joe6!

It is good.  Try "Luther" on Netflix too.

Wifey and I started re-watching Breaking Bad a week or so ago, in conjunction with the new season of BCS.  Up to S2E5 and it's so sad watching the Walter/Skylar relationship dissolve and knowing what's to come.  Enjoying seeing Jane again, and eagerly awaiting Saul's (and then Gus' and Mike's) arrival to the show.

 

And good god, Jesse was a punk.

As I said, I liked the start but the second half of the series just didn't do anything for me, especially the Harold plot line and Bakuto.

 

I just got to Bakuto and have about 3 episodes left.  I have no problem with Danny as a character, but he's just kind of meh as a hero.  I'm not really sure what he brings to the table other than a fist that glows once every ten days or so.  I'm really hoping the Harold stuff goes somewhere, but from your post, I'm guessing it doesn't.

 

I will say one thing, the show has held my attention better than Luke Cage did.

BoJack Horseman, if I haven't said it already in this thread.  it's an adult swim cartoon with Will Arnett and Aaron Paul, very irreverant humor.  It is my go-to time waster on the treadmill or stationary bike

I'm telling you that if you like Bosch you will absolutely like Luther.

Titus Welliver does a good job with Bosch, although in my head I always pictured Bosch to look more like Gary Oldman / Harvey Keitel

Finished Sneaky Pete.  Early episodes are great but pardon the pun, Sneaky Pete kinda peters out near the end

Well into the second season of "Breaking Bad" Pretty much living up to the accolades within this thread. Just introduced Saul. "When you are a criminal you need a "Criminal" lawyer" lol

I wish I could erase my tv memory so I could experience that show for the first time again.

 

 Anyways, just finished first 3 seasons of Sherlock on Netflix.  Highly recommend it as it makes the movies with RDJ look elementary.
