Over the past couple of weeks, I watched the Netflix show “Mindhunter”. I would describe it loosely in a round about way as a prequel to “Criminal Minds”. It’s set in the 70′s and shows the early stages of the study of serial killers.
Anna Torv (Fringe) was the only person I knew much of their work heading in to this show, but the show was well cast and well written. The serial killer’s that were included were pretty damn creepy.
It’s nice to see that there will be second season.
Netflix announces the Jason Bateman , Laura Linney show “Ozark” will return for a 2nd season.
Good news. Good show.
Finished the Netflix show “Atypical” earlier.
Put it on last night, because I like Michael Rapaport and Jennifer Jason Leigh. It was a different show, centered around their highly functional autistic son. A lot of story lines in play, and quite a few lies that get tangled up.
I forgot to add this when I finished it. “Ozark”, a Jason Bateman and Laura Linney show on Netflix was a very good show.
Bateman, is a money launderer for a Mexican drug cartel whose partner is involved in a little skimming off the top. To save his own life and the life of his family, Bateman sells the cartel rep, portrayed by
Esai Morales, on his ability to launder even more money by moving to the Ozarks in Missouri which isn’t exactly a target of the FBI & DEA and other alphabet agencies.
One problem was that Bateman was already a target of the FBI since his partner was already cooperating with them. Once he’s there he encountered some small town politics and a local drug-kingpin that he kept crossing paths with.
Solid cast/story line and the little boy played the role of “creepy bat shit crazy kid” really well.
I enjoyed it and looking forward to an announcement from Netflix about season 2.
Seeing the lake/area, makes you want to live there.
Last night, I watched the documentary called “Runnin’ Down a Dream” about Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on Netflix. I’ve seen it before and wanted to watch it again to see if it helped with my question to see if Tom Petty singing Johnny Cash’s “Don’t Take Your Guns To Town”, is simply a figment of my imagination.
The quest continues because it wasn’t inside this documentary.
Over the weekend, I watched the Netflix show. “Friends From College”. It was content. Nothing jumped out as earth shattering funny, or some crazy story line that hasn’t been shown before.
I was expecting it to be a but funnier than it was.
Over the weekend, I finished off the 4th season of Marc Maron’s show “Maron” on Netflix.
I didn’t like it as much as the first three simply because it was so negative. Rehab + losing your house + animals (temporarily), just too much negativity.
It improved as it went on, but not as good as first three. Just too much negativity for a show. I have parts of reality for that.
