    ^The season 1 finale was more spellbinding than season 2 IMO. But yes, better acting here for the cast. I actually slept during the finale so am going to watch it again. Haha

    I said the same thing about the season 1 since they had covered so much material in season 1 from the Novel. I initially thought season 2 would go nowhere, yet it’s stood on its own. I’m fine without season 3 though. Of note, there are also reports that season 2 would be the last.

    I partly missed out on that experience because the HBO Go interface sucks, and we went from S01E01 straight to S02E02!

    Despite that jump, we still enjoyed it.

    The moment I saw the guy's face and found out about his surname, then I knew. He's a carbon copy of his Dad.

    And Elisabeth Shue?!? When was the last time I saw her? Hollowman? The Saint?

    I felt the same too.

    ^She’s one hot momma there, pardon the sexist jibe...but her portrayal of a character as a doting mother to both her child and Homelander behind her ruthlessness and depravity to get what is entitled to Vought and The Seven is a stunning turnaround to her do-gooder image like in Hollowman and The Saint.

    ^She was in Karate Kid and Back to the Future, too! How's that for an ultra-throwback??

    Stayed up all night binge watching Unbelievable on Netflix. Wondered what all the buzz was about and after episode 1 I was hooked. Unfortunately the mini series is based on actual events.

    Loopy on the trail run this morning :confused:

    Season 2 of Succession is up on HBO Go. I don't know how to describe this series but it I find it very engaging in a very different way. It keeps me wondering what's going to happen next.

    It is unbelievable. There is a twitter thread started by one of the reporters who covered the story of Marie. He was even able to get feedback from the real Marie.

    Unbelievable too is the real Kaitlyn Dever, who plays Marie. She’s touted as one of the 10 emerging actresses in Hollywood now. And she’s damn a beauty out of character.

    Got hooked on this too. For me, Episode 2 is where it accelerates.

    The 1st episode was great.
    Action scenes were Jason Bourne - like.
    Hope it continues to be great. (y)
