Jeopardy just wasn’t the same. It’s gonna be tough for anyone in this guest hosting roles.

Nice tribute at the opening from Ken Jennings.

Finished up Bridgerton. I will say I slept through about 60% of this. The story and production were a lot of fun. It did seem like to me from about a 50 minute episode, 20 minutes of that felt like extended bad sex scenes that completely removed me from the story. My wife says it's a trashy soap opera and that's par for the course.

The new "Name that Tune" reboot with Jane Krakowski and Randy Jackson was actually filmed in Australia using American expats for contestants.

Finished Ted Lasso. What a great show. Think I may want to go back and rewatch Scrubs after this.

Any other good shows on apple tv?
Late to the party, but yes, Ted Lasso is indeed a delight.

As far as other shows, I've heard decent things about Tehran, which is a drama, but apart from that, dunno.

M night sham has a show on there called Servant that sounds pretty interesting. I've also heard Wolfwalkers animated Irish movie is fantastic

Finished The Shield S03. Shane is starting to annoy me, and I hope Mackey kills Mara.

I believe from the same people who did The Secret of Kells which is a beautiful Irish movie as well.

Does HBO ever have anything worth watching anymore? It’s always the same crap. Glad I get it for free.

Lots of old movies, like North by Northwest. I liked the Flight Attendant, and Succession is very good. Heard good things about the Bee Gees documentary on there as well.

I’m talking about regular HBO. HBOMax definitely has done good stuff including the classic Looney Tunes.

I'm going through a rewatch of Curb on HBO and it's so worth it.

I did that a few years ago, and I agree. Hard to believe that the first season was filmed over 20 years ago.

Rewatching The Office. Each time I rewatch, Jim becomes more and more of a dick. Dwight is annoying, sure, but he's really just a nerd who lacks social skills. Jim is a straight up bully.

We watched the Fresh Prince 30 reunion show (HBO Max) last night, and it was very good. Definitely worth the watch if you enjoyed the show. If you didn't enjoy the show, go back to watching The Bachelor.

I’ve seen fewer than 20 episodes of The Office and am aware that while amusing, Jim is a dick.

When a tempo isn't specified, any reasonable person would default to lento.
