Watch, Watched, Watching: What Now?

I finished the first season of Rick and Morty. It’s pretty good and lives up to the hype. Mr. Meeseeks had to have been the highlight. The dad cracks me up too.

I can’t find the previous thread and its not worth starting another but the cast of Orphan Black are doing a table read on Sunday for charity:

How many times do you rent a movie before you just decide to buy it? 

I'll leave what I just rented again in silence as to not skew the simple poll.

I havent rented a film in 20 years. If something isnt on sky, netflix, prime or disney plus it isnt worth watching anyway.

Never seen it, soberly at least. 

And I must say sobriety, or at least a reasonable semblance of it, is driving me insane. My 32nd birthday was this week. I've smoked weed and drank for literally over half of my life. I've worked out a lot over the years, and know some tough tolls, but my body has never felt worse than this. When I played football (American), they'd put trash cans all over the field so we could throw up in them. I've never been worked harder, but it doesn't compare to this at all. 

I can't sleep or think or do much at all. And I pass out all the time (very different from really sleeping). Hopefully I am one of the people that really comes out of this better off, but it all feels like it's Groundhog's Day, and I think I've written that several times before. I might have last night for all I know. 

I'm more clear with a beer, but I've got to just keep telling myself if you're thirsty the water is a better idea, or at least the blueberry pomegranate juice,.

Feels like I wrote that recently, too. Oh well, a life spent leaning into vices has to deal with the consequences of them.

Working my way through disney originals with my daughter.  I have to say there was nothing scary about Shere Khan, he was camper than a jamboree of boy scouts.

'I did a full rewatch when HBO reaired it for the 20th anniversary last year, and I thought it held up beautifully.  I would still rank it as number 1, better than BB, better than the Wire, better than Mad Men, much better than Ozark'. 

@Cas Stark I dont think anyone is putting mad men or ozark in the 'best shows of all time' conversation. 

For me it has and always be the wire. BB and Sopranos are same level for greatness, but far less important from a sociological/political standpoint.

Watching the final season of She-Ra and the Princesses of power.

This shit is heartwarming as fuck. It really speaks to my inner-romantic.

Just started "the Great" on Hulu... starring Nicholas Holt and Elle Fanning... ep 1 was hysterical ... 

Just watched the first episode with Linda. Great fun indeed. Nicholas Hoult's terrific, as is Elle Fanning and Phoebe Fox. Gorgeous costuming, nice cinematography. The anachronisms do remind me of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, and my only concern is how sustainable this sort of narrative approach is over ten hours rather than in a single film, but definitley eager to see.

Ozark doesn't belong in the conversation, but Mad Men surely does.  It's been in the top 10 of lists from Rolling Stone (#4 in their Top 100), the Writer's Guild of America (#7 in their top T01), and others (Sepinwall and Seitz put it at #6 in their Top 100 in their book TV (The Book), as an example). The writing and performances on that show was always a cut above.

Ozark is fluff in a way the other shows named aren't. Nothing wrong with fluff, mind, but yeah, not greatest TV show level entertainment.
