Corner Gas. Six seasons starting 2004. Canadians seem to live sitcoms that take place at convenience stores. Followed by Corner Gas the Movie and Corner Gas the animated series. First episodes can be a "why was this popular" but as it digs away at the intrenched cynicism and expectation of foul language, cowgirl and blood, yeah, I snorted at a few jokes. 7 eps in, I'll see...
What streaming service? Might have to check this out.

Not sure if it's been mentioned on this thread or not yet, probably has. But as someone who watches a ton of tv, The Bear is one of the best new shows I've seen in a couple of years. It's fantastic. On Hulu.
Yeah, I echo this loudly.

Found the show scrolling my hulu free trial and searched for a mention. Bob had before but cryptic.

Words are fast, I had to use the subtitles to follow.

Shameless, the early seasons. It’s criminal what woke idiot writers did to this show in the later seasons. Granted, it’s always had a left wing bend, but the writing was so good early in the early seasons it was more subtle compared to the final seasons where it’s was blunt & preachy.

So I checked out The Bear and its not bad, I get a lot of the inside restaurant bits as I come from that background which helps. The Menu is also available on HBO, will need to check that out too.

Interesting that this just happed recently:


The Copenhagen chef René Redzepi says fine dining at the highest level, with its grueling hours and intense workplace culture, has hit a breaking point: “It’s unsustainable.”

As they say if you cannot stand the heat get out of the kitchen. I have worked in some high stress environments, none more so than a kitchen during an important restaurant event like Holiday such as Mother's Day or NY Eve.

NE Eve seems easy. Just start with the booze. Tell me honestly, the kitchen laughs at the douches paying a paycheck for

Noma's hottest dish: Currently serving grilled reindeer heart on a bed of fresh pine, and saffron ice cream in a beeswax bowl. And this is probably what the kitchen at this place is like:

I wonder if I could ever get rich enough to be impressed by that kind of stuff. If I had the kind of money you need to frequent a place like that, I'd probably just go to BKing and not ask about what the specials were.

Very much looking forward to "The Last of Us" premier on HBO Max this weekend. This is an adaptation of the zombie apocalypse video game of the same title, one of my very favorite games I've played. Well technically not zombies as the infection is cordyceps fungus taking over the brain (which is a real thing among insects). Early reviews are it won't disappoint (I mean, how can you beat Nick Offerman as a paranoid doomsday prepper?)

Started watching a new Netflix series the other day, Kaleidoscope. It's a bank heist type of show, but apparently every viewer is being given the episodes in different orders, so that's an interesting twist. Only watched one episode so far, but want to spend some serious time watching it all at the same time.

haven't started that, but yes have been interested. I guess it's made that you can watch all of the episodes in any order that you like, resembling what you see in a Kaleidoscope.

Finished up the Bear last night and the final episode was fantastic, Jeremy Allen White deserved the Golden Globe he won because of his performance in this episode. Looking forward to the next season and them moving into some new ideas/themes.


Also been watching with the wife Abbot Elementary, have not seen much chatter on this thread about this show but the series is really the hot episodic show now and Quinta Brunson is the current "it" girl in Hollywood. I really like it and I get a politically incorrect Good Times vibe from it including their own version of Buffalo Butt. Some funny takes on urban life and makes fun of many cultures along the way.

I've always been a fan of the actor that played in "Everybody Hates Chris". Saw him in an ad for this show and planned on giving it a watch.

It’s going to be good, just as long as they pretend the 2nd game doesn’t exist. Ellie can’t carry the show w/o Joel, that will not work for a major tv drama.
