        • Gf and I are working through Burn Notice. Her second time through, whereas I had never seen it before. Got me thinking - has there ever been a TV drama set in Miami that wasn't over-the-top and campy?

            No but since Miami is over the top and campy it works ;^)

                  That was basically my thinking as well. I nearly died when Campbell made fun of the Caruso glasses meme in one episode. :-D

                      • Thought I'd comment on a couple of different things I watched, or am watching.

                        The first is Catch and Kill, the HBO series made from Ronan Farrow's podcast about the Weinstein story. I think there are a total of six episodes, the first four of which have been excellent. Farrow has a pretty easy going manner which allows him to just sort of subtly extract the story out of the interviewees. Weinstein obviously comes across as the devil, but NBC runs a pretty close second to him.

                        Next I watched Heist, a six part series on Netflix. It presents the story of three unrelated crime capers, each comprising two episodes in the series. The first is a young woman in her twenties, who simply manages to drive away with a Loomis security truck in Las Vegas containing millions of dollars. Story two involves a family of idiots in Miami, lead by a guy who just sat around watching CSI and thought he could create the perfect plan for stealing a $100 million in cash at the airport and, if his gang had a collective IQ greater than 87, might have gotten away with it. Story number three involves a hillbilly in Frankfort, KY, who decided to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of high end bourbon from the distillery where he worked.

                        I'd give that one a watch, too.

                        Finally, I watched the first five episodes of Solos, on Prime, and frankly, should be awarded some sort of prize for doing so. It's a series that attempts to pull off Black Mirror, but for some reason forgot you actually need a story. Probably no bigger waste of talent on the streaming services right now. Watch at your own risk.
                        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                          Bruce Campbell and Sharon Gless were excellent in their roles.

                            Burn Notice was part of the USA Network's golden years before it turned to ****.

                            Burn Notice + Psych + Monk. I even like The Dead Zone and the 4400 at that time.

                              F. Murray Abraham has strong list of roles in his portfolio. Muppets in Space, for crying out loud!
