    Ozark - Season 3

    Not sure if the show is trying to be Breaking Bad, but it does certainly seem like it's trying really hard to reach the intensity/shock level of Breaking Bad but the writing/storytelling/acting (Laura Linney notwithstanding) is not good enough to make it work most of the time. That said, I...

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    Nacho being gone, Nacho being up at 3am, Nacho acting all nervous, Nacho taking a long time to get the drinks, Nacho not reacting to the fire in the kitchen at all... I'm actually surprised Lalo didn't catch on sooner. :D

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    Yeah, I think it was pretty obvious Lalo knew right away Nacho double crossed him. He has every reason to be suspicious of Saul, but not sure why he would think he had anything to do with the hit (other than maybe knowing something). Put me in the camp that didn't buy the Kim transition this...

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    I thought the episode was one of the best of the series. So why was it so important for Saul to stick to his story? Was he just trying to protect Mike who wasn't supposed to be there? Wouldn't it be in Gus' best interests to pit Lalo and Eladio against eachother?

    Frasier Reboot

    How is it a reboot if it's a continuation?

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    Could be. One thing about this show is they always do a great job explaining something that initially seems completely implausible.

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    And possibly a smoother insurance claim (since it would appear there is no negligence on the part of Gus or his employees). That said, with the way that place blew up, would they really be able to tell that some coffee machines were smashed before they would have been smashed in an expolosion?

    Good call. So why did Nacho trash the restaurant before they blew it up?

    Your "Top 20" Favourite Television Shows of the Last 10 years (2010–2019)

    You guys have me convinced I need to watch the Twin Peaks return. Is it a prerequisite to have seen the original series? By the way, how is 'Better Call Saul' only mentioned twice in this thread?

    This Is Us (NBC)

    Meh, I still only watch it because my wife and daughter do. The writing is pretty absurd when it comes to Randall. He's not even human at this point. This show just exemplifies how bad network TV is and how much better cable networks are these days.

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    Yeah, I'm having a hard time buying that complete transition at the end. Also, as entertaining as the video was, was it really even necessary with the logo infringement as additional fuel?

    I can assure you they weren't. :)

    I would assume that was Kim as a child since the mom called her Kimmy.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    The Fatwa season was definitely my least favorite. I loved the Mel Brooks season though.

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    I also think it would be a cheat for the writers to go that route and they’re too good for that. Surely at some point there would have at least been mention of a significant other at home. Come to think of it though, while it wasn’t really something I thought about at the time, Saul in the BB...

    For what it's worth I think he said it in jest and I don't really believe that.

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    Bob Odenkirk did say in an interview that for all we know, in the Breaking Bad timeframe, Saul was going back to Kim at home every night. :D

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    Thats’s been pretty much this whole season. But it has still made me laugh. And wouldn’t someone parking in a handicap spot without a disability be exactly someone Larry would challenge? That didn’t sit right with me.

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    I don't buy that Nacho clogged the drainpipe. Too many things had to swing the right way for that opportunity to happen. As soon as they said they wanted 10 bags I knew it was gonna get clogged (they were only getting 2 prior to that). Based on the "50% off" thing you knew it was only a matter...

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    Sorry but that was painful. Kept waiting for a payoff and there wasn’t one. Oh well, at least it was only 3 minutes.

    Better Call Saul - Season 5 (AMC)

    I said it toward the end of last season, but I’m finding the Jimmy/Saul/Kim arc to be the least interesting of all the arcs.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    Yeah, if I remember correctly I wasn't a big fan of that mockumentary special when it first aired and so wasn't looking forward to the series when it was announced. I think it took me until the first season ended and hearing good things for me to go and watch it. It's also been over 20 years...

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    Not to mention her character having the same first name. I'll admit I'm pretty sure I thought it was his real life wife when the show first started.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 10

    The latest episode definitely had me laughing (pretty much anything Leon does or says). I'll admit I was rolling my eyes at the whole "professional cryer" thing, but on doing an internet search it apparently is a real thing (although its modern day presence, particularly in the U.S. seems...

    Official 2020 Oscar Nominations Thread

    Fair enough. From an accessibility standpoint and appealing to a wider audience there's no question Toy Story can't be beat. From a personal standpoint I never viewed the Toy Story series as much more than high quality children's movies that parents will also enjoy. Case in point, I never even...

    I think it just became "cool" to root for a Korean film and given today's climate people are probably afraid to say anything negative about it winning.

    You think? I feel like there is not much of a rewatchability factor with it as a lot of the entertainment value of it is with the intrigue of not knowing what will happen. As much as I liked the movie I can honestly say I have no interest in ever watching it again. On the other hand, 'Once Upon...
