I watched this on a whim. It’s great. It’s a fresh new look at the American dream. Totally worth watching. The sound track is fun and it will make you wish that it was 1995. It’s also the first time since Breaking Bad that you’ll be rooting for the unconventional hero in the drug story. It has an awesome summer vibe and is a beautiful movie about L.A. that isn’t about Hollywood. Totally worth your time.

I’m still making my way through The West Wing,  but it is a nice distraction from the disaster that is our current presidential election.  It’s also very ‘Merica

The show where no one really ages (Paul Rudd).  Spend some of your holiday weekend at Camp Firewood. It’s also great, even if you haven’t seen the original. Also, Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later, is currently in development.

SNL is an American classic. Some episodes are hit and miss, but it is chock full of things that make ‘Merica what it is, kind of weird and kind of great.

Documentary

The Seventies: One Nation Under Change ( 2015)
