First Lady also is entertaining, follows the lives of Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford and Michelle Obama and weaves back and forth across time as they advance through stages in their lives.  Some very good actress's including Michelle Pfeiffer, Violet Davis and Gillian Anderson.
I gotta say the guy who plays Obama is a spot on voice double.

I like The Boys, I was a big fan of the comic, but I do think any recommendation of it has to come with the caveat that you have to have a tolerance for extremely gory violence and disturbing subject matter.

I'd add recommendations for The Tourist, Patriot, The Great, Clarkson's Farm and movies like The Alpinist, Queenpins and Palm Springs.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

While graphic, I like the direction they took to be less....edge?  I went and read the comics after watching the first season and I'm glad they didn't take everything down the comic book direction.

The Expanse on Amazon Prime was pretty good.  Filmed mostly in GTA.

I agree. A good chunk of the book is essentially unfilmable.

I feel like at this point we've just named all of the Amazon shows.

Using the word quality is really debatable but if you like Horror Schlock I think I had a trial to Shudder through Amazon I think and watched the Chucky series.   I had fun with it.

Holy smokes, thanks for the rundown.  Is Wheel of Time anywhere decent, I guess its time to find out.

Well, we didn't mention Jean Claude Van Johnson.

Thought I guess now I have.
