|eljay||ZZ Top: That Little Ol' Band from Texas - A highly-enjoyable bio-pic - complete with great song and concert snippets - about a great "little ol' band". My only quibble is that the story ends with the "Eliminator" album.|

Knives Out - At first glance it appears that wealthy patriarch Harlan Thrombey committed suicide, but as the family's dirty secrets come to light during private detective Benoit Blanc's investigation, it becomes clear to all that something is afoot.
Comments: My wife thought it dragged and wasn't overly-impressed with it, but I very much enjoyed this quirky, slow-but-steady-paced murder-mystery.

We're about to start episode 9 of 10 of Absentia on Amazon Prime.
We watched the first 8 episodes in 3 evenings.

We watched "The Morning Show" on an AppleTV+ trial
Nothing short of brilliant.
The writing, acting and story are all excellent and all hit hard.
Much darker than I imagined when I heard about this show...but I could watch an episode or two everyday...can't wait for season two!

The Irishman - Martin Scorsese presents: A Mob Movie.
Comments: Horribly trite and generic. (My wife managed about 20 minutes; I gave up after about 30.) "Goodfellas" or "Casino" will more-efficiently provide a mob-flick fix.

Marriage Story - For a professional couple with a young child and diverging interests, ending a marriage can be difficult - especially when lawyers get involved - but it doesn't have to be.
Comments: This "slice of life" drama started off a bit awkwardly but got stronger as it progressed. Good story and characters, slow-but-steady pacing and strong performances from the leads. (My respect for Adam Driver continues to grow.)

|eljay||Thanks for the tip - I'll check it out. I've seen LTiH recommended elsewhere, primarily because of Sally Wainright's association with it, but the fact that Sarah Lancashire is in it can only help.|

If you like sarah Lancashire and you haven't seen the series as yet, I can highly recommend ' Last Tango in Halifax'.
There are 3 seasons plus a christmas episode.
I've just finished 8 seasons of McLeod's Daughters and am now on Season 1 of Desperate Housewives which is deliciously soapy.

|eljay||Finished Seasons 1 and 2 of Happy Valley. Wonderful show with good writing, great characters and terrific acting from the leads (especially Sarah Lancashire).|

Dolemite Is My Name - Fame and fortune evade part-time stand-up comedian Rudy Ray Moore until he co-opts African-American folk tales and jokes and develops the crude, no-nonsense persona of "Dolemite", which he parlays into a successful string of comedy record albums and series of Blaxploitation films.
Comments: A moderately-amusing, expletive-filled, "based on a true story" bio-pic.

|eljay||My wife and I are almost finished Season 1 of "Happy Valley". It's one of the best (if not the best) British cop dramas we've watched.|
