Orange is the New Black - Season 6: 3.5 of 5 (last half of the season - 4 of 5).

I have always been a fan of this show, though it can be erratic. There were so many dramatic changes this year that it took a few episodes to get into it again. Part of my issue about the first few shows is that the inevitable brutality is hardly ever brokem by a moment of postivie connection between characters or the trademark Orange humor. That started coming back in later sessions. In retrospect, perhaps it makes sense that the first few episodes would be extremely dark given what happened at the end of last year and the consequences of this. It just didn't make me want to binge watch it like usual until midway into the season.

I quite enjoyed OITNB this season. It was a whole different setup. It was a nice juxtaposition to last season's 3-day riot orgy. New setup, people divided up and new alliances forming, etc. Baddison was annoying but a good play against Piper. MacKenzie Phillips was so good in the Barb & Carol storyline. It's a solid 4 out of 5 for me.

I am currently watching Castle Rock which I am totally loving. I've been a longtime Stephen King fan, and this new King universe is just so great so far. If you want to know all the references & Easter eggs, GameSpot Universe does videos on YouTube with two mega King fans that fill in the blanks. Just watch the episode each week first, because obviously spoilers.

I have Ozark on Netflix in my queue as well. I like Jason Bateman. He picks these little quiet movies or sleeper projects that are often rich in story & acting. He's not DeNiro but he is good at what he does. We are giving a couple of episodes a run tonight.

I'm glad Better Call Saul is back.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I'm really looking forward to Castle Rock. Without going into spoiler territory, are there any references to The Dark Tower? I love those books but the movie was terrible. It would be a shame if that ends up being the only adaptation.

Yes, it was great seeing Mackenzie in a meaty role.

No spoilers, just teases.

First, I'm a bad King fan because I haven't read The Dark Tower series yet. So I do not know. BUT if you find the videos on YT I mentioned, those guys will tell you whether anything from that shows up or not.

I will tell you that so far there is only ONE character from King books. Sheriff Pangborn.

One other character, not telling the name, is a relative of a very well known King book/character, even sharing an opposite gendered version of the name.

So far, the only other close thing is Sissy Spacek being in it (she is not Carrie, obvi).

Also, Bill Skarsgard, who played Pennywise, is in it. But most people do not believe this is an early version of that character. This is present day. IT was in the past. We actually don't really know if Bill's character is good or bad yet.

Pay attention to the opening credits. SO many King references. The GameStop Universe breaks down the opening credits by itself. It's fascinating to see what they jammed into it.

It all seems slow at first, but it's not. There is a lot of Shawshank in it (a lot of the story starts in the prison). By episode, it really gets moving into fun territory. I highly recommend the YT videos to help sort everything out per ep after you watch them.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Thanks I've seen 3 episodes of Castle Rock and really dig it as well as Ozark which was fantastic. Looking Forward to new 2nd season. Here is the link for the YouTube channel link that breaks down CR: https://youtu.be/W9NXkZoPrJM
