Anyone else watching Succession on HBO? I plowed right through it. Loved the family dynamics, and the oldest son was fantastic. Wonder where he got his inspiration  :rolleyes:

I was ready to quit watching after the first episode, since there was not one likeable character, but I stuck with it, and am glad that I did. The acting was very good all around.

 

The love to hate characters appeal to me. Oh and I meant the middle son (above), but actually all of them are really great. With a nod to the smarmy yet insecure Roman played by Kieran Culkan.

Yes, Kieran Culkin provided some much needed comic relief, as well as 'Greg the egg' and Tom.

The 1957 version of 12 Angry Men. After serving on a difficult case in criminal court,our kool judge told us to watch this film,which was dated,but had some good performances,and kind of rang true.

Very belatedly I watched Jim Jarmusch's Paterson which is about as good a movie about poetry as you might see. I am happy I saw it belatedly, because I visited Paterson for the first time this summer, and I just saw Adam Driver's work in BlackKklansman, but anyway I strongly recommend it and it's on Amazon Prime.

This must be in the top 10 (possibly 5) movies I've rewatched most frequently. Casablanca, and oh I should start a thread rather than listing them here...

But it's great. And is aging superbly.

We just let the copyright for Bite Club run out last year... That didn't take them too long to name a show with the same name...

There are a few Bogart movies in that category, in my opinion.  I could (and have) watch (ed) Casablanca, Treasure of Sierra Madre, Maltese Falcon, African Queen, Key Largo, Caine Mutiny, et al. multiple times.

Rocketed through the first season of The Sinner (on USA and Netflix) and now up to date on the second season. Acting all around is tremendous but in particular I"m always impressed when kids knock it out of the park and wow does this kid...

Maniac. I thought it would be a slightly less nonsensical Legion, but I don't like it as much as I thought I would.

 

I gave up on The Sinner after about five episodes. I need a break from "damaged woman is damaged" after Sharp Objects.

The first season was very good (although I thought the ending was a bit contrived).  Jessica Biel was terrifric.

I've seen only a few of this season -- the kid is great.  It reminds me a bit of the first True Detective.

Yes.  Very enjoyable.  Except Jennifer Jason Leigh, who is just annoying.

Season 2 of The Deuce, which has fast-forwarded to early 1978.

We're towards the end of season 1. A lot of very funny lines go under the radar if you aren't paying attention. I'm having a hard time with the plausibility of the business scenarios though. Or even that the kids could really be that clueless.
