McMILLIONS - HBO doc series about the FBI investigating a group that was
scamming McDonald's Monopoly game for years. I'm two episodes in to the
three released so far, and it's as addictive as McDonald's french fries - without
all the calories!

Recommended so far!

I've heard nothing but good things about it. I'm waiting for all the
episodes to air, then I'm gonna binge them.

I'm enjoying a rewatch of television's "Voyagers!" from the days of yore. I found the collection unopened at a local second-hand store and have been generally impressed by the bits of reality and character that are still able to make their way through the program's "kid-friendly" veneer. 

So far, everything about the show is better than I remembered.

Repeat viewing of two seasons of the American version of GETTING ON.

YEAR of the RABBIT (Pilot)

Bawdy with slapstick. Involuntary laughter ensued.
This looks like my weekly fix to let my brain relax and enjoy.

A couple of episodes of DEPARTMENT S (not H). A favorite in my youth, it ages less and less well.

Definitely not THE AVENGERS!

I've never been able to find the Department S DVD set at a cheap enough price, and so it's still one of those major British 'cult' shows I've never seen. I do have the Strange Report and Doom Watch sets and enjoy them. My BF has all the pre-Rigg/Peel Avengers that exist, The Prisoner, UFO, and half of the original Randall & Hopkirk run. Usually between us we have most things covered, but Department S is a notable omission. I'm glad to hear things about it not being that great! :^D

I just tried to watch the first episode of Avenue 5. I bailed halfway because I figured out why this doesn't work... at ... all. They are all the same sardonic/sarcastic character! It's Peter David dialogue for every single caricature and you don't care about a single one of them, witty asides and all. Ha ha. Looks great, maybe with the sound off... or in French?

Oh, the other thing I thought was how much Hugh Laurie as an American sounds like Tom Selleck as Magnum P.I. Perhaps they'd like to add this witticism to a script... the possibility that they would is pretty much what's wrong right there.

Next!

I watched the first episode of Avenue 5, the "humour"
and characters didn`t click with me. It`s dreadful. I
wonder if it got made on the strength of Ianucci being
involved?

I didn't give AVENUE 5 so much as a glance this week.

I see WESTWORLD is returning next month, so I'll have something else to be annoyed by.

I started watching DEADWOOD on HBO. I'm halfway through the first season and am very much entertained.

I've given up on AVENUE 5. It's like a super decompressed comic book to me.

I checked out the first two episodes of GOOD GIRLS Season 1 (on Netflix) and I'm liking it so far.
