Trailer Park Boys- The Animated Series (or whatever Netflix is calling it)
Not great, but far better than I was fearing it would be. Would rate it on par with the last couple of non-animated seasons. Fear was they would go over-the-top cartoon zany. There are a number of things that would have been tough or near impossible to do live action, but most of the episodes could have been tweaked and used for another non-animated season.

I also watched a few episodes of Trailer Park Boys, never watched the live action version.

Not my kind of humor so gave up on it, it was weird enough to get me to watch more than one, so it had that going for it.

Yeah, the animated series wouldn't have been the place to start. You still might not like the humor of the live action series either, but like a lot of series that are on for a long time the characters stopped evolving after 6 seasons or so and then all the episodes (including the animated ones) start to kind of feel like repeats of what's already been done.

*Finally* finished Luke Cage Season 2. The first season is my least favorite Marvel Netflix show where the first half was tolerable but the second half was painful. Season 2 has the reverse problem. The first half was a slog, but the last half (or maybe last 1/3) was fine. Iron Fist Season 2 is next on the list. I hear it's an improvement on the first season. Working my way to Daredevil Season 3 which I hear is amazing.

Rosemary & Thyme

This is a British show where two women, one a plant pathologist and the other a former police officer, start their own gardening and landscaping business. And where ever they go, somebody gets murdered, and they end up figuring out who did it.

It's very "Murder She Wrote"-esque. The premise sounds stupid, and they do have to contrive a reason for them to be there every episode. But it's pretty entertaining.

My mom and I watched Rosemary and Thyme and we really enjoyed it.

I've been re-watching World's Dumbest again. This time?

A guy calls 911 because he wants to know if he can get a police escort to Lil' Wayne. (BTW In the USA misuse of 911 is a misdemeanor  offense).

A woman gets pulled over for almost hitting a policeman on the side of the road. When she's pulled over, she says she has diabetes, numbness in her feet, and she's had surgery in her right eye("That isn't wonderful" her words, not mine)... so honestly she shouldn't be driving at all. Especially since moments later the cop establishes that she is also drunk.

Also numerous idiots try to use their vehicles intended for traversing snow on open water. The results are... about what you'd expect.

Oh, and one of my favorites, a 19 year old girl getting a ride home in the back of a police cruiser takes a beer out of her purse, opens it and starts drinking it. As a result, the cop pulls over and arrests the girl for underage possession of alcohol. It's funny, once you're 18(in the USA) you're considered an adult, but in the USA, you absolutely, positively, cannot even touch alcohol until you're 21.

Also, some idiots volunteer to get themselves pepper-sprayed.
