Thanks. On the list.

Watched Quarry Season 1. Great first (maybe only) season. The finale was the fudge.

3 hours in and I didn't care about anyone, especially the main dude, so I quit. IMO the leads were not up to the task of playing both sides of that story. Neither was the writing or shooting there.

Planet Earth II, as expected, is utterly breathtaking, Attenborough's certainly not lost it, and the Zimmer soundtrack is near perfect for it, lighthearted in places, his trademark swooping, ominous strings elsewhere.

I contend that Rectify and The Affair are the best shows on TV right now.

About 5 episodes into The Young Pope and really enjoying it so far. Sharp witty dialogue, beautifully shot and Jude Law is a giant prick to most.

Dear Evelyn,

I like RicknMorty, but find it too random/spaz-ish to watch more than one at a time. Does that make me a bad father?

Thanks.

Not sure what's going on here. Love Rick and Morty, as well as Community. Both Dan Harmon jawns. Is there something else by him right now? If so what's it called?
