I would stop after season 4 (the John Lithgow season). It was downhill after that.

Just started Norsemen. Very Pythonesque. There's a certain je ne sais quoi about European political satire that American writers can never seem to capture quite as well. Something about the continuity of the human experience...

Has anyone watched the Forest Whitaker movie called 'How it all Ends' or something like that?

Yeah, would be mad if I had went to the movies to watch it but it was an ok action flick. I probably liked Bright better.

Yeah. Not a bad 1 episode TV series. Was not a silver screen flick. Worth watching if you like end-of-the-world genre.

I do like that genre, in theory. Usually the execution is so poor it's really disappointing in the end.

This one kind of reminded me of a reverse damnation alley. Maybe the only thing they had in common was the drive across country but still. Anyway, I watched it and wasn't impressed. I know they were on back roads, but where there are roads, there are people. They were like the only car on the road for 2000 miles.

And the ending wasn't very satisfying.
