    I liked it, but stopped watching mid-way through the second season. It's never more than moderately funny, which made it easy to give up on when the plot twisted itself into a total mess.

    I finished romanzo criminale the other day which was 2 seasons about the Rome crime scene from the 70s to the early nineties, very good. The obvious comparison is Gomorrah, but while that looks like it will hang around to long, Romanzo told its story over 2 seasons. Pleasing.

    Also talking about crime shows hanging around to long...

    New season of Narcos and I am only half way through is not that great whatsoever, watchable but the lead is nowhere as compelling as Pablo. Problem indeed.
    I'm watching season one of Gomorrah now. It's very good, the story moves at a much faster pace than I was expecting. Darker too.

    Pretty impressive performance by D'Arcy Carden to play six different characters in one Good Place episode. She did a pretty good job of mimicking her co-stars' mannerisms and speaking styles.

    Been hammering it a bit over the last few days, halfway through season 2 (Janet causing earthquakes). Agree with everyone that season one ended really well, reckon its an easy enough watch to continue with even if it dips, but enjoying it so far.

    I loved the first series of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel and can't wait to watch the new series. I can also highly recommend the recent 3-part BBC documentary A Dangerous Dynasty: House of Assad.

    Yeah it's so so good. I haven't binge watched anything in years but could easily wipe out a season of it in a couple of days.

    Quality series. The whimsy gets a little too on the nose in the middle of the second season. But recommended anyways. Would have liked a bit more of Lenny Bruce.

    You should then watch Romanzo afterwards, 2 seasons story told, happy days.
