But he wants "to rip out the f$&ked-up machinery in this bull$4it city" and intends to start by prosecuting townies from Charlestown who keep robbing armored trucks. 

I grew up in the Boston 'burbs—a completely different world—and worked for a while in Boston during the early 90s. The first episode feels very, very real and makes me glad I didn't stay in Boston. Back then it was run by men just as corrupt, racist, and run-down as the city. But the show is very good; one reviewer compared it to "The Wire" and that might be spot-on. At times, Bacon is a bit hammy and seems to be channeling James Gandolfini's Tony Soprano in a "hey how you doin" mood, but he's the shifty star. Hodge smiles through the racist crap casually tossed his way but he's quietly determined to shake up the town. 

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and Barry Levinson are some of the executive producers. Damon AFAICT grew up in Wellesley, a rich Boston western suburb and likely never had a lot of first-hand experience with the city's gritty ugliness. Affleck grew up closer in town—mostly in Cambridge which has a lot of scruffiness beyond MIT and Harvard. You could tell Affleck had experience with the local blue-collar areas from his work as director and co-screenwriter on the great movie "Gone Baby Gone."  I mention Levinson because he was executive producer and I think one of the driving forces behind the brilliant series "Homicide: Life on Streets." That series and this one put in a lot of work on developing character and feel. 
 
Flip it.  Damon was born and grew up in Cambridge; Affleck was actually born in California, but his family moved to Falmouth (near Cape Cod) before settling in Cambridge, which is where they met.

I don't watch a lot of TV, but I started Queen Sono tonight and really enjoyed it. You know, in case your Netflix subscription feels boring right now.

The only reason we signed up for amazon prime
 

Mrs. Maisel and the equally great Gilmore Girls come from the brilliance of Amy Sherman-Palladino

Another reason to have Prime—if you're into detective series: "Bosch" starring Titus Welliver. Season 6 dropped today.

i'm not too worried or paranoid about it

i'm more concerned about my mobile phone and web footprint ;-)

it's a trade off i voluntarily participate in

as i understand it, 23&me can use/sell your data anonymously for science and/or research (they own some rights, but you can delete your if you so choose)

nebula genomics on the other hand gives you the option up front what to do with your data (you pay and they give you results and you can decide whether or not to sell your data to others for compensation)

i really enjoy the show

probably because i'm fascinated by the science and history involved

after seeing the first episode, i knew i had to get sequenced and start my journey to find out the particulars

as much as possible or about as much as they could be sussed out

i've done 23&me (sort of a broader take tilted toward your family tree)

next i did nebula genomics/george church's lab (way more detailed science)

i've since done viome (both tests) haven't gotten any results back yet on this

because i'm a curious bugger...

Just caught the first 2 episodes of The Kominsky Method.  Looks like I'll be binging that until I catch up to the current season.

Deputy - on Fox.  Didn’t think I would like this show, but I’m intrigued. Kind of gritty and like the Wild West but in present time.

It's interesting....but it always feels like a 20 minute show expanded to an hour by repeating everything 3 times.  I wish they'd follow one story and run it from end to start (because it's always going backward in time).  Finish one...move on.  The constant switching of stories is frustrating and boring.
