matt was tough but festus punked him constantly...

Matt - “Right now I gotta meet the stage.”

Festus - “Matthew that stage ain’t due in for another hour and you know that. Anyway Miss Kitty’s only been away 3 weeks.”

Matt - “Closer to four.”

Festus - “Well she’s just apt not to come back at all. Lotta nice fellas in Wichita you know. And her going to a wedding an all just could be that she-“

Matt - By golly I think you’re worse than ol Suggs. Rub salt in an open wound!”

SFW—agree with your take that Man in the High Castle is one of the best TV series I've ever seen. The climax of season 2 was overwhelming. I don't know if Dick's estate/inheritors get any royalties from all the movie adaptations of his novels but if they do they're rolling in it.

Bill—have you checked out Rufus Sewell in the detective series "Zen"? He also does a great turn as Lord Melbourne, Prime Minister and advisor/crush of young Queen Victoria in "Victoria."

That is what I have been hearing.  Very sad the fall from grace that has befallen Jeffrey Tambor, he was so funny too bad he is a douche in real life.

I keep short-listing Tin Star as something to start watching but end up choosing something else. Other people here have praised it as well, so I'm gonna try it. Tim is a brilliant actor—I remember his loathsome character from "Rob Roy" and cheering madly when Rob Roy (Liam Neeson) literally split him in two with a claymore.

This would be a huge list to post, but one of the favorites running series now would be;

Game of Thrones (2011-2019/HBO) | The Dark (2017/Netflix) | Terror (2018/AMC)
Stranger Things (2016/Netflix) | Origin (2018/YouTubeRed) | Mr Robot (2015-2019/USA Network)

I tend to like more foreign, non-US series content more and useally from streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon in that order.

  

I've started season 2 of "Mr. Robot" but found the whole issue of Eliot's sanity, particularly concerning Christian Slater's character, increasingly distracting. It takes away from the anti-capitalistic thrust of the main plot and the suggestion of technology as subversive and destructive. Did this bother you as well? 

If you like non-US stuff, BBC America puts out a lot of great series. I keep pushing "The Hour" (actually iTV, I think, but still) with Romola Garai, Ben Whishaw and Dominic West. Greatgreat actors, brilliant plotting esp. season 1. 

Just watched the first episode of "Mrs. Wilson" on Masterpiece; it only runs for three episodes but the first one is bang-on. The actress Ruth Wilson plays her real-life grandmother who begins to find out disturbing things about her husband shortly after his death. Iain Glen plays the husband. He's great in GoT as Jorah Mormont and as the lead character in "Jack Taylor", a series about a disgraced Irish detective who turns to PI work.

Finally started watching Stranger Things .

After the first 2 episodes, i thought...meh. Reminded me too much of old high school themed horror movies. Which i just don't care for.

But by the end of episode 3, i was hooked. And episode 4 reeled me in hook, line, and sinker.

Love those kids.

Or did anyone else catch Fallon's homage to Gary Shandling on his 5th anniversary show? I never watch but happened to catch it. Brilliant!

 
I haven’t seen either, but I read an article recently about Radcliffe and MW sounds intriguing.

HAven't seen either but the "Miracle Workers" looks promising...

Daniel Radcliffe was in a very short series on Netflix called "A Young Doctor's Notebook", based on short stories by Mikhail Bulgakov. Radcliffe plays a young doctor with brilliant academic credentials but little common sense, stuck in the hinterlands of Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution. Jon Hamm plays the same doctor later in life who tries to warn his younger self against becoming addicted to morphine and other failings. 

The series is funny but at times the humor gets very, very dark.
