That sounds like an easier premise to pull off to be honest.

...I'm generally not one to really genuinely worry about the future of movies or TV, but the first four articles on Deadline right now are about reboots of Wayward Pines, King of the Hill, The X-Files, and 24. That peak TV bubble is about to burst.

Babylon Berlin. It's not Bernie Gunther by Philiph Kerr but I enjoyed the 3 novels (of six) I read.

Anyone else watching the Good Place? I've fallen out with a lot of network comedies, but the show is bubbly fun and an easy way to pass the time. I think the overwhelming amount of available shows has pushed me to seek out those requiring very little investment from me...

If you like rude cartoons about puberty, then Big Mouth is pretty amusing. Created by Nick Kroll, it features Jenny Slate, Fred Armisen, Richard Kind, Maya Rudolph, Jordan Peele, and Jason Mantzoukas.

Yup - quite right. I was trying not to type Howard's Way by mistake - but even that is wrong as it's Howards' Way

Search Party started strong in its second season after a rather uneven first. The mystery surrounding a missing young woman and Alia Shawkat's amateur sleuth didn't find its footing until the first season's finale, with a lot of filler in the earlier episodes involving her friend's work lives and relationships. Once the show focuses on the various players in the central mystery, it shines, and this new season seems solely concerned with the fallout from the ensemble solving the mystery at the end of season one.

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Shawkat, having found the missing woman hiding out in Montreal, is confronted by Ron Livingston's private eye and kills him with the help of her two friends. The aftermath is a messy comedy of errors and the humor of the show really shines in these moments.


I know there's a lot of shows out there (far, far too many to keep up with) but I'm glad to have stumbled across this one, mainly because I'm happy to see Shawkat in the lead.
