Dunno if I should say this aloud (is this mic on?), but I kinda found myself, to my surprise, watching The Queen's Gambit again. Hot damn what a show!



Also watched few episodes of Kingdom, a low-budget, low-key, low-acting quality but honest show about ghey fighting (in octagon). Notice the word ghey, not to mix it up with gay, which is totally cool with me, muscular cunts grabbing each others hairy nut sack and calling it a sport is not however. I guess it's cool but I'ma now watch the pilot of Warrior, which is some sort of Chinese-American kung-fu action series that's supposed to be good. Hopefully without hugging on the floor and other ghey shit.

I gave Black Sails another go earlier because Treasure Island is such a good story, but I always struggle to get into series' where everyone is so...perfect. These are meant to be rugged sailors who've been fighting at sea for years on end and yet everyone looks like they've just come off a catwalk. Vikings annoyed me for that same reason, everyone is meant to look edgy or sexy rather than...a fucking viking.

Shows The Sopranos, The Terror, Game of Thrones or The Wire have it right, they don't try to create a ton of red carpet stars, they just focus on people who fit in well.

Kingdom is excellent, as are the characters and actors who portray them. Jay and Keith are both hilarious and tragic.

Damn shame it's been cancelled after three seasons.

Watching HBOs the Undoing


What's that like? Seems the type of show where I would either loathe it, or get right into it. Love me some Donald Sutherland though, and he's in his 80s so you gotta enjoy his performances while you can. In this one, is he a kindly old man or a ruthless, cruel piece of shit? I prefer ruthless, cruel piece of shit Sutherland. :lol:
