Bosch Season 3 (Amazon Prime) – I’m only about halfway through but so far, this season is great. I’m also starting the Bosch books from the beginning, though I think I read some of them back in the 90s. This season is supposed to be a combination of two of the early books. There’s a lot going on – a serial killer in Koreatown, the murder of a Vietnam vet, the murder of a young woman, and the murder of one of Bosch’s former nemesis.
My favorite characters are still J. Edgar and Irving, probably because they were both on The Wire.
Gomorrah Season 2 (Sundance, Wednesdays) – Sundance just aired the first four episodes of season 2 these past 2 weeks. That means there’s only 4 weeks left, which makes me want to savor every single second of this delectable show.
I didn’t watch the Sopranos, but the consensus on twitter is that Gomorrah makes that show look like The Brady Bunch. Spoiler alert! Ciro killed his own wife, and the show then killed off my favorite character, Salvatore Conti, by slitting his throat in a church. Great stuff, but I wish Conti was still alive. I loved the religious imagery in his apartment juxtaposed with his brutality. He will be missed!
Louis C.K. Seasons 1 – 4 (Netflix) – So how did I not start watching this guy until now? He is hilarious! He’s like a raunchy Seinfeld. I’m now on season 4 which is getting super serious. I don’t love the storyline with the foreign woman so hopefully that’s done for good. I can’t wait to watch his comedy specials when I finish the show. I also loved seeing Allan Havey in one of the episodes.
Billions Season 2 (Showtime, Sundays) – I think this season is better than the first, which is saying a lot. The penultimate episode this week was terrific. I totally didn’t see that twist coming, which is a sure sign of great writing. I hate the fact that Rhoades won this round, especially since poor Ira was a pawn and the ultimate loser in his little game. And Rhoades is a sucker if the thinks that Axelrod won’t crush him when it counts. We’ll see.
Better Call Saul Season 3 (AMC, Mondays) – I’m not sure where they’re going this season but I can’t wait to find out. I wonder if they’ll get to the part where Mike does start working for Fring?
