    Just finished S1 of Better Call Saul. The evolution of Saul's character is quite good.

    I have got to pick up 12 Monkeys again. Stopped watching it after S1 mainly because my wife didn't like it much. I planned on watching the rest myself but forgot. I liked it, but I am a SyFy nerd

    S1 can be a bit of a chore for some, but it gets exponentially better.  IMO it's one of the best shows ever, if you're ok with time travel.  Obviously time travel in general isn't for people who need to explain everything with "cause" and "effect".  I'm on my 2nd re-watch (and I don't re-watch hardly anything) and it's just absolutely brilliant.

    Each season gets better and better. 

    I finished series 4 of Peaky Blinders. Adrien Brody as an Italian American mobster was fucking great. The 1st scene with him and Tommy in his office was awesome. I'll start the latest series tonight. 

    I'm also watching the Outsider on HBO. Perfect mix of True Detective and Stephen King horror.

    The finale of the Good Place was last night. Wow. 

    Deep and the perfect mix of how to handle loss, grief, moving on, death, and what it means to live a good full life.

    Finished the latest season of the Expanse last week. It got really good with the Amazon money. I felt like the writing got better in spots. 

    Over the weekend, I watched Season 2 of End of the F***ing World. It started slow, but I liked the ending. 

    I am an episode in of season 2 of Sex Education. It's really really good...

    I'm not afraid to admit I just finished Cheer in it's entirety. 

    Holy shit, what a brutal sport. I'm somewhat familiar, my gf in high school was on the comp team, but not even close to this level. The amount of injuries is insane.

    That's been on my list.  A lot of people seem to think it's one of SyFy's 3 best shows, if not THE best.  And that was before this past season.

    Which, most people's gold standard / #1 is Battlestar Gallactica....so I'm going to have to track that down.

    I watched it to. Love Jerry

    Sex Education is one of my favorites. I believe I'm on episode 5 or 6 of season 2.

    I'm halfway through season 4 of Better Call Saul. Still very good.

    As a HUGE baseball fan, and a baseball purist...there is only one other baseball movie that compares to Field of Dreams. 
     

    There have been many good ones, The Rookie, Bull Durham, Major League, Eight Men Out, etc. 

     

    However, For Love of the Game is the only one to reach the same “feels” level as Field of Dreams. 
     

    This scene, as someone whose childhood dream it was to play in the majors (got to play in college)...I can never watch without getting choked up. You have to have seen the whole movie for it to fully make sense...

    Absolutely, I thought that I listed it, but apparently did not.

    Can someone move this to the "Movie lines that hit you in the feelz" thread?

     

    That's where I swore I posted it...
