Well, that was technically a football game.

I feel like this entire evening from the game to the commercials and the half-time show was programmed by Skynet.

It was kind of like Mayweather/Pacquiao when it finally happened. You watched one of the best to ever do it, do it again. But it was also pretty boring.

I'm embracing it because it's feels rare to be alive at a time where the best ever, in a sport you enjoy, is not only still active, but continuing to do amazing things. Brady, Belichick and the Patriots generally. I feel like 20 years from now people will look back with more undisputed aww towards this dynasty than they do now. I'm trying to take it all in and remember it now. I wasn't around to enjoy Ali or Tyson, or Orr or much of Gretzky... but I'm alive for this and it's insane. :)

Way more Jeffrey Tambor in the back half of this AD Season 5 than I expected. Did something change?

It was definitely a great start to the season, though there was a lot of catching up in the first episode. Veep, which should have felt that way, kind of hit the ground running. Heck of a 1-2 punch, like when Veep and Silicon were back to back. Not sure Veep ever paired with HBO's Girls. Can't wait for the rest of the season for either though.

Watching this first episode of Twilight Zone now, the first episode seems to be free on Amazon. Once it all hits I'll pop my free trial of CBS All Access. Not sure there's anything else I'll watch on there. Also, glad they offered this episode and not the Adam Scott one. I love him, but if it's a remake of that stupid airplane gremlin episode, I don't really feel like I need to see it. Maybe the original is due for a rewatch, but I got big in to the original series as a kid, ended up buying a  bunch of the seasons on DVD, and always thought that episode was bad.

Last nights Barry was a better Tarantino-esque fever dream than Game of Thrones take on the overtly long Peter Jackson battle scene.. oh, and it was lit better.

Im trying to decide what to watch after I finish True Detective season 3. So far my options are finally starting The Leftovers, The Man In The High Castle season 3 or Chernobyl. Any opinions?

Chernobyl is really good, but I'll be damned if there's a better show than The Leftovers.

Im not fully getting the Chernobyl love. How do you make a catastrophe of that proportion such a dry affair?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

There's nothing to be gained from doing a dramatic version of events when the drama is all right there in the events themselves. It doesn't need big speeches or arguments or even raised voices when you can have a scene like the one at the end of the first episode with the guy looking over the edge of the building. I'm planning on writing something about the show's horror elements some time in the coming week. I think that's another fascinating device.
