Well, horsefeathers, my brain is never going to fully 100% believe this thing is happening, even when I'm actually watching it, but the Deadwood movie is full steam ahead with an E.B. Farnum sighting:

Less Powers Boothe is always a bad thing, though in this case I kinda don't mind it too much. Cy really had been reduced to just being a crazy, paranoid weirdo by the end, and once Hearst took off he really wasn't left with much. I don't think that character would have survived much longer than where we left him.

This was also hinted at with the Swanson name on the safe Jason was stuck in or am I mixing things up?

- Always Sunny is relentlessly good and this might be my favorite season having caught up. Mac coming out has been hysterical, Dennis getting a Range Rover back, there’s the hilarious premise of the clip show, the sexual harrassment episode, the bathroom episode...

- I binged season 1 of Kidding on Sunday. I don’t really have a beat on this so how out of line is it to consider Jim Carrey an all time on screen talent? Everyone’s good, especially Tara Lapinski randomly, but man Jim Carrey is never not the stud in whatever he’s in (good or bad, looking at you The Number 23 when I say bad).

I was at a wedding in Napa because a good friend of mine was marrying well. It was so fancy that I felt awkward. I was sitting next to a dood from Finland that I didn't know and we realized American TV was our best bet for conversation. I asked, "This is obscure...but have you ever seen 'Party Down'? "HOW DID YOU READ MY MIND!!!!!"

It was actually St. Hellena. Off Dowdell Lane. Why do you ask?

The wedding was at the family "house" which was essentially a mansion inside a vineyard. I was actually staying in Santa Rosa because the place I was supposed to stay at screwed up my reservations and gave my room away (and also tried to charge me for my stay, which is another story.) Anywho, I'm pretty sure that the next day the motel I was at burned down, based off the fire maps I saw.

Was that Crocker & Star?

We went there shortly after the fires, last year(?) We were kind of concerned about getting in the way but people kept thanking us for going. It was harvest time, so the air always smells like grape juice, but it was mixed with smoke. You could go all over without seeing damage, then all of a sudden an entire farm/house/garage burnt to the ground.

That's the place. Just a touch farther down the road. We were prob less than a month apart.

And now Ricky Jay has passed away as well. Granted, he had left the show. But I always hoped to see him return.

I just watched the first episode of the second season of Making a Murderer. Things were going fine until we met Avery's new lawyer. Maybe she is 100% legit, but when she and her goober friends were trying to recreate the blood splatter patterns, I felt like I was watching Loose Change or something. It came off as ridiculous and grasping at straws. And they spent like 40 minutes on this. And I'm not sure I can sit through 9 more episodes of THAT.

So, does this get better? Or should I just stop. I enjoyed the first season a lot, even though I did leave it thinking Avery did it and Dassey at least knew it happened.

I only watched the first 3 episodes of season 2; kinda left the next couple on in the background while I did other things, and haven't been back to finish the rest. It really felt like a whole lot of nothing desperately stretched out (which feels weird to say about a murder case).
