Just binged season 2 of The Umbrella Academy. The first series was okay and nothing special. But this second series is just superb the rise in quality between the two seasons is immense.

Is it possible to jump straight into Season 2, skipping the first? (I started watching the pilot and found it very meh.)

Anyone watched HBO's The Plot Against America (2020) yet ?

It's a 6-part miniseries (so far) by The Wire creators (created and written by David Simon and Ed Burns).

Yeah I am, it's the usual superb standard by Simon and Burns. Well worth watching.

Wouldn’t be a good idea to skip it, unless you read episode summaries instead.

S1 is a little slow to start but by episode 5 it really picks up. Watch it for Robert Sheehan if anything.

I’m about half way through S2 and it’s been superb so far.

Road movie/redneck wrestling comedy-drama The Peanut Butter Falcon is well worth a look, new on Netflix.

Watched this a few months back when it was cheap on Prime. It's superb, the best feel good film I've seen in years. It's feel good in the right way as well, not like the usual saccharine nonsense.

I agree, it could easily have been mishandled, but luckily wasn't.

Watched the Mercado documentary on netflix, mucho mucho amore, after hearing people laud it. Wasn't impressed, found it a bit dull, not much story to the life other than a dramatic court case. But can see how he has become a hero for woke people.
