Oooohhh, Yellowstone … I always liked Costner and checked out ep 1 a while ago, and liked it, but I was already watching too many things so I put it on my To Watch list – I may get onto it after this season of Succession. I watched the first 2 or 3 eps of Sex Education a while back and it didn’t really grab me, but I can’t remember why now. I think it was because I was hoping I’d be as charmed by it as I was by Derry Girls, and that’s hardly a fair way to approach a show.
Along with Succession I’m FINALLY going through The Wire (just started S2) after hearing for years about how it’s the greatest TV show of all time. Also, going through the latest seasons of What We Do In The Shadows and Insecure and the first season of Reservation Dogs. I also just half-binged Cowboy Bebop (kind of clunky, but not without its charms).

I haven’t watched TV in years, but we got Disney+ to share with my mother in law, and we started watching X-Files. Nearly at Season 4 after a couple months. Quite a good show but the rollercoaster of good, bad, okay, amazing, mediocre writing is sometimes a challenge.
I think it was Season 3 Episode 12 which was written by someone who really understood the characters and wrote a great story & dialogue, but it departed from the tone of the entire season so far. If you consider them serially it doesn’t make much sense, but on a per-show basis they are better.
The two/three part episodes are quite redeeming because they seem to bring in the heavy hitters for those.
Also an interesting thing is seeing someone who was a major character in a previous episode appearing as an extra in a later episode. A good example of this was one we watched yesterday, a character who played a quadriplegic scientist a few episodes ago appeared as a doctor running around a hospital.
