  • Finally watching west wing. Finally saw Two Cathedrals.
    What an episode

    Comment


    • The penultimate episode that season setting up Two Cathedrals (18th and Potomac) is just a gut punch. The series settled in and hit its stride in season two, and carries that into season five.

      Favorite episodes from Season Three:
      The Indians in the Lobby
      Bartlett for America
      Hartsfield Landing
      Posse Comitatus

      Favorites from Season Four.
      20 Hours in America (pt1 and pt2) ** Best Episodes Ever
      College Kids ** You will rage about this great episode
      Election Night ** Best opener to the entire series

      • Yeah, the seasons where Sorkin left starting in season 5, while ok by normal television standards, were definitely a notch below seasons 2-4, though the last season picks back up a bit.

        The one that gets me every time is the end of season 3.

                I know better than to get my hopes up. Also, it doesn't seem like a Mel Brooks movie without the usual people in it, of course they're all dead now.

                • The Model Family on Netflix. Through 4 eps it's a great start. Think parts Ozark, Breaking Bad and Money heist. Very well done so far and I hope they nail the landing.

                  • Just started Ted Lasso. Love it so far, though I do have a slight spoiler because I’ve seen the Christmas episode already.

                    Was surprised to see that it takes place in the Premier League. Based on a couple clips and promos I’ve seen I assumed it took place at a Championship or League One level club, but then I remembered not every PL team has massive stadiums like Tottenham.

                        Oh please. It wasn't that bad. It was the weakest part of the season, but that says more about the quality of the rest than anything else. It wasn't GoT bad. Parts of it were over the top, but overall it was a perfectly cromulent ending.

                        I'm wondering what novels they'll borrow from for season 4. Season 2 was clearly a riff on Clear and Present Danger, and this one seemed like a combo of Sum of All Fears and Cardinal of the Kremlin.

                        Btw, if you want to watch a similar show with a horrendous ending, my wife and I referred to Vagabond (on Netflix) as the "Korean Jack Ryan." Was entertaining for 15 episodes then went completely off the rails for episode 16. Worst part is they seemed to be setting up a season 2 but then the pandemic hit and it never went into production.

                        • Finished jack Ryan. Perfectly cromulent season. Won't win an award, but highly entertaining.

                          My only complaint: Every scene that showed anyone on US soil should have been cut. God they were horrible, totally unnecessary, and could have ruined the season. The directing, the writing, the acting (though I'm not sure anyone could have saved those scenes). Blech. Felt tacked on.

                          Otherwise the remaining 90% was very good. 1> 3 > 2.

                            • The backstory scenes here were actually quite good.

                              In this season, no children. No love story.
