The newest of the Venture Bros started this previous Sunday. Apparently it's been long enough that I took it off the DVR list so I didn't get it even accidentally recorded. I guess I should fix that.

The Good Place season 3 starts on NBC on September 27. If you haven’t seen the first 2 seasons, pleeeeeease do! They are definitely on Netflix and I’m pretty sure on Hulu. The episodes are short and the seasons are short, so it’s a quick binge. Perfect for Labor Day weekend.

The reason I got into it in the first place is that it has become a running joke at work that our workplace is very similar to the good place, what with the unlimited soft-serve and feeling like everyone around you is 1000 times better than you.

They’re not wrong. :propeller:

I am quite excited for it to start again, it's so hilarious and yet smart and constantly new. With the billions of horrible sitcoms out there I had mostly written off TV comedy and then this show came along.

:mvp:
Go team cockroach!

If Y'all aren't watching Killjoys, you're missing out on a great ass kicking sci-fi space opera. They are about 2/3rds through their 4th season with an already greenlit 5th and final season coming eventually. The story is way more complex an expansive than it appears going into the first season. While it builds an interesting universe and overall story arch, it's really the characters and many of the actors that make this show the way it is. Bigger than life, but with their own intricate personalities and complexities. The three main characters and couple secondary characters that have come into the fold are just a joy to watch bounce off each other. Hanna John-Camen as Dutch hits the perfect notes of badass assassin chick without feeling like she's a trope and really carries the series.

Season 4 started a bit weird and slow but around the middle it's paid off with some crazy fun episodes. There are few shows that can add a previous villain to the good guys without a heartfelt conversion and do it right, but I've begun to root for Delle Seyah Kendry despite her past.

Better Call Saul... I just flipped past until the last few episodes. Seems like it's more interesting as it becomes more contemporaneous with some of the later episodes of BB.

OZARK, enjoyed the twists, however far fetched.

I've been very slowly watching Better Call Saul, too, but I like the earlier episodes. I think I like it better than Breaking Bad.

In addition to watching The Good Place, I have been listening to The Good Place Podcast. It's hosted by Mark Evan Jackson (the actor that plays Shawn), and his guests are all the actors and writers and directors of the show.

It's a podcast about making a TV show, by the people who make the TV show, so it's incredibly up its own ass and way too inside baseball, unless you're into that sort of thing. Hilarious references to Los Angeles geography like "a lot of auditions happen in Santa Monica" :lol: Get it?!

Also they are very :rainbowhurl: about how much they all love each other and love working together, it's enough to give you a tootheache.

That said! If you can get past all that, it is an excellent podcast and it has given me an greater appreciation of the show, which I am amazed was even possible.

Two of my favorite moments (out of billions):

Jackson asks Michael Schur (the show's creator), what specifically is his beef with Florida and Arizona. Schur's response is essentially, "You're kidding right? Do you know literally anything about Arizona and Florida? What's not to hate?" :lol:

Manny Jacitno (Jason) talks about working with Eugene Cordero (Pillboi) and how special it was to be doing a scene with another Filipino actor that had nothing to do with their being Filipino. Apparently that was a first for both of them.
