Watching Parks and Rec season 4. Enjoying it immensely. Lots of laughs in this season and I'm only six episodes in.

Has anybody been watching the new Sabrina show? I never watched the original, but new new show looks interesting.

I'm watching some episodes of Monk today. That's a show I kind of have a love/hate relationship with. I love some episodes... but some others, not so much.

Yeah, it's fun, but super dark. Like Jack Chick Tracts are all real dark.

Finally finished The Good Place Season 2 last night. Pretty close to binged it a few months ago but got stopped 3 eps shy of finishing because our baby's feeding habits changed and, well, that just threw everything off.

I'm really satisfied with the show. There are absolutely moments where I can see every other single show just drawing everything out, but the plot moves along at a steady and active pace. It's really refreshing to see. Sometimes I would see the punchline coming but expected it to be 15mins later into the show. They skip that mess and give it to you in a minute. I wish more shows would do this.

I like where the show ended and am looking forward to season 3... maybe even moreso than how season 1 ended (which is saying a LOT). And, in case you haven't heard, NBC has picked them up for a season 4 already.

I have a friend who doesn't like The Good Place all that much and I'm like... how can you not love this show? It's just so damn good.

I'm on an Anime kick lately, so I picked up Death Note tonight and watched a few episodes. I really like the premise. It reminds me of an old Twilight Zone episode a little bit.

I've been watching a bunch of anime lately too. Flying Witch, Invades of the Rokujouma, Squidgirl and How to keep a Mummy.

When I went into Walmart yesterday I was kind of surprised by how much Anime they had. I mean I know there's a TON of series out there, but they did have a modest selection of anime including: Tokyo Ghoul, One Punch Man, Deadman Wonderland, Black Clover, Cowboy Bebop, Outlaw Star, RWBY, Dragon Ball, Naruto, Pokemon, Batman Ninja and Voltron. They could use a few more I'd like to see like One Piece, Fairy Tale, Evangelion and Attack on Titan.

For those watching anime lately, here are some recommendations:

Golden Kamuy:  This one feels like a Western that isn't a Western in the best possible way.  A former soldier in the Russo-Sino War comes across a strange secret: The map to a huge treasure has been tattooed across the torsos of a gang of prisoners who escaped not long after.  And soon it becomes apparent that each skin is a part of the map.  After meeting a young Ainu girl, the two team up to find the treasure, which, as it turns out, belong to the Ainu people.  The series starts off as a fairly normal action adventure and quickly gets... weird.  The characters are delightfully bizarre and the humour is completely off-the-wall.  But at the same time, there is a heart to the series that comes out when you least suspect it, with our hero dealing with the killing he's done to survive in war.  It's also a mix of adventure, lessons on Ainu culture and indigenous food porn.

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/MP4zryHHUy4" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/MP4zryHHUy4</a>

Megalobox:  Loosely based on the classic manga Ashita no Joe, this is a science fiction sports series about boxing with hydrolics.  Though the sport the series is based around seems kind of... dumb, it makes up for it with extremely great character work and genuinely great twists and turns you don't see coming (except the end, which is a bit more conventional but feels earned on the journey to get there.)

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure - Never has a show more lived up to it's name.  It doesn't seem so strange at first, just a bit campy.  But season by season it both gets better and weirder with it's characters and very clever powers that feel more like traps, puzzles and curses that need to be outthought rather than conventional "shoot energy" powers.  This includes a chef who makes food so healthy it mutilates you before putting you back together even healthier than before, a creature that kills you if someone sees your back and the ability to make zippers.  It also has some great intros and outros (the outros using some vintage pop/rock tracks from bands like Yes, the Bangles and even Savage Garden.

Kids on the Slope - An excellent coming of age teen drama set in the late 60's.  A young student from a wealthy family feels like an outsider who until he meets the toughest kid in school... who is also a Jazz nut.  It's very touching and sweet and has some great music both from Jazz classics and from Cowboy Bebop's Yoko Kanno (also Cowboy Bebop director    ShinichirĊ Watanabe did this one.
