The Americans — A documentary series about the activities of Soviet KGB agents living in the United States during the 1980s.
Man Down (Dave, eMule) four, six episode series about a crazy man-child in his forties and his crazy friends. Not much to distinguish it except a fast pace and a talented cast. Rik Mayall plays his dad in the first series (The Young Ones, some Blackadder episodes). The class of school kids are funny scenes. He says "fiddlesticks" a lot in front of them.

That was the hardest thing about him being the Doctor. I kept expecting Tuckerisms from him. :lol:

I really enjoyed Sharp Objects.
The music, and the way it's presented, is ... what's another word for "Freakin' Awesome".
Great story, too. I don't know if it is suitable for binging. I felt like it was more fun to mull-over the episodes one at a time. YMMV, of course.

Sharp Objects was ok. After all the pacing, the way the finale episode played out felt too rushed.

I have a question for you re Sharp Objects.
Where TF are Alan's speakers?
The dude's got a stereo system that cost more than my house, and we see him in that room playing records every episode, and we see the room from multiple angles and points of view; but, we never see the speakers.
WTF. Where are they?

Disenchantment

So far I like it. I see a lot of people rate it unfavorably in comparison to Futurama, which is fair, but it is still definitely watchable.

I have to say, when Futurama first came out I wasn't all that crazy about it, I was more fond of the Simpsons, and just didn't tune in much to Futurama at all.

Now having revisited Fururama, I prefer it over the Simpsons and wish Netflix would bring it back.

Disenchantment is fun. I like Matt Greening, Rich Fulcher Abbi Jacobson and Matt Berry so I am pleased that they are doing something together. If there's only one season then that's fine. I think shows benefit from limited runs.

I am personally loving Disenchanted, possibly more than The Simpsons or Futurama, mainly because I can see the potential in it of not merely spoofing modern society and pop culture (RPGs and fantasy literature) but basically every culture which has ever existed, all of which are rife for lampooning.

Hah, I did kind of notice that, but it didn't register as anything meaningful for me.

Moreso annoying for me was the lack of any development that moved the story along. Just the constant depiction of small town, weird people. All the characters were of various degrees of creepy, so you could only wonder if they had done the crime or were they complicit, but for seven episodes the story failed to take that in any direction.

I'd read the book, but I'm getting kind of busy with my classes. Maybe in December.

Yet another reason to heart Amy Adams.

(I know; its a character. I ask for so little; let me have this.)

I liked the latest season of Inside Amy Schumer. It's more of the same but each episode is short and it's still fresh enough. I don't know if they have another season in them, though. A nice little break plus she (and her show's writers) have something to say.

Season three's "Saying Fine To A Shirt" is still hard to top though.
