1. Friday Night Lights. I'm gonna start shilling like crazy for this show. When I first heard they were turning the movie into a TV show, I figured it would end every week with the team hitting the

oh, damn, i didn't know that. now i'm depressed--i really liked that show.

Here you go -   At the time I wrote that the show was being broadcast on WLIW. It appears to be out of the rotation right now but should be available on Netflix.

(I accidentally posted this in The Menu thread.)


A curiosity (recommended in a list of obscure but worthwhile movies in Brooklyn Rail). 

Times Square (1980), produced by Robert Stigwood. Two punky teenage girls on the run and causing havoc. The leads really commit to their roles, balancing out a horribly miscast Tim Curry (an English guy with a plummy accent playing a character called Johnny LaGuardia?).

Plenty of silly stuff, like the relative absence of cops despite all the vandalism and misbehavior (they do show up at the end when one of the girls is playing a permit-less concert in Times Square with her rock band). Also, some heartfelt stuff and a killer soundtrack. At one of the character's low moments, "Pissing in the River' suddenly kicks in, and it's perfect.

I streamed it free here: https://archive.org/details/times-square-1980-480p

Poker Face is really good so far, and by so far I mean the first episode. There's just nothing not to like about Natasha Lyonne, and the supporting cast is pretty impressive also.

I didn't see any of Queen's Gambit, but after watching Last Night in Soho and now this, I see why Anya is a big deal. 


Queen's Gambit is great. I'm also a big fan of Autumn De Wilde's EMMA. (also starring). It was just the sort of froth I needed to get through the early days of the pandemic, and I've happily watched it several times since.

I loved the first season of Russian Doll, so this is on my list. Just need to finish Wednesday, which is not transcendent but better than it needed to be.

I am going to revise this. The season one finale is magnificent. About as much fun as you could pack into an hour of TV. Worth watching the whole thing to get there. And poor Jenna takes some punishment!

Okay, it’s not season 2 finale of Euphoria or the last episode of The Prisoner but there we are walking with gods (also known as Zendaya and Patrick MacGoohan).

It’s really good.
