Nice. It's such a well thought out production. So much talent. The stage is simple but so well used.

Boy, that was really a different way to tell the story. We all liked it, especially George III (He was hilarious) and Thomas Jefferson. Didn’t know about his son and that part of the story. The music was non traditional but worked well. The revolving stage was a novel idea and was utilized well. Really liked the song about being in the room. 
 

The amount of memorization for this production must have been staggering for the primary actors, but boy did they pull it off well.

glad we didn’t spend a kings ransom to go see it in person.

The Alienist S2 begins July 19th.

It'll be easy to remember because it's Benedict Cumberbatch's birthday.

 

 

 

 

 

And Lizzie Borden's.

More people here will probably remember July 19 for this memorable moment: 1860 1st railroad reaches Kansas

just finished a rewatch of moore's BSG. 

first time in 10 years, and i think it has aged well.  

I've gotten the itch to re-watch it as well. After GoT ended so poorly I've gone back and forth on which series I thought was 'better.' While both series kind of fizzle out, in my memory BSG actually has the better, more well sustained high points. The Pegasus and New Caprica arcs are as good as anything ever put to film, and the climatic mutiny is nearly as good.

Just finished S3 of Dark 

Strange show. They dragged it on way too long.

I'm a few episodes in and I have that unsettling feeling you might be right.

Spoiler

There is a problem with villains in the story. They introduce one, humanize them, then feel the need to introduce another. Expanding the story might be the only way to make it work rationally but it is coming at the expense of over complicating it. Having multiple versions of the same person is slowly creating inconsistencies. Some things are better left unseen... like, why is middle Jonas trying to build a time machine in the 1800's? The dude is a high school time traveler with no knowledge of physics.

I agree with your sentiment of over complicating things, however, the way they ended season 3 was very satisfying. And it does come together by the last episode.

Season 1 and 2 were masterpieces in my book. And Season 3, while not as good, had a very satisfying last episode which made everything feel complete.

Unlike Game of Thrones, where the last season ruined the show as a whole for me.

Spoiler

Don't read if you haven't watched further. Jonas going back to the 1800s makes sense in the later episodes because it shows how he became Adam.

It really is an incredibly impressive show. Lin Manuel Miranda can write songs like nobody's business. It's such a long shot of a premise.

From 2009, like 6 years or so before the show hit Broadway:

I was reading this trash article on CNN.com the other day criticizing the streaming release of 'Hamilton' as essentially Obama era propaganda out of touch with 2020. Lin-Manuel better be careful the cancel crowd doesn't come for him.

My brother read and shared a review he found from the National review that really tore the play apart. It was too heady for me and seemed to be overly critical. I understand wanting to have historical accuracy, and appreciate the effort, but this was too much.

There is a lot of hand wringing over the portrayal of Hamilton as a self made man and his loose connections to slavery. What drives me nuts is how everything has to be compared to today's standards. Living in the 18th century and being part of the aristocracy it is going to be quite hard not to have some indirect connection to the practice. Of course he is going to have some friends in high places with questionable morality by today's standards. Heck show me someone in Washington today that doesn't.

Also it seemed like yesterday productions were being criticized for not having enough roles for people of color, and now the diversity of Hamilton's cast catches flack for covering up the racism of the day.

These are the same people that took issue with The Greatest Showman. I get it. I also understand that I still think the actual PT Barnum was quite a turd in many respects.

Watched the first 2 episodes. I'm really liking the show. Matthew Rhys (The Americans) is very good as Mason.

Watched episode 3 last night.  It is really good. 

Spoiler

EB has TB? 

Charlie isn't dead? 

Can Drake survive the season? 

Hate having to wait another week.
