Rewatching Brooklyn 99. I've genuinely very sad that this is the last season. I don't think it ran out of steam or there was a drop in quality. Sad, sad news. Can't wait to see what Schur does next, the guy is on a hot run.
I watched the first episode of that new McCartney thing with Rick Rubin. It's more like a podcast really - there's not much to look at (although you do get to see a handful of old Beatles photos you might not have seen before) but for all that it's pretty good - certainly recommended for Fabs fans.
They're standing around a mixing desk most of the time, or McCartney's in a chair with RR sitting at his feet like an acolyte, and amazingly there ARE a couple of revelations in among the usual banal Macca-isms (I'm pretty sure the origin of the name Sgt. Pepper had never been related before - I reckon he made it up! and there was a 'WOW' moment that seemed to hit them at the same time it hit the viewer, listening to the multitracks off 'While My Guitar...').
Oh, and I could name the 'Michelle' chord* and Paul couldn't! Nerner
*it's Fm7+9 I think
Finished this series tonight. It's really very good.
Very engaging show with enough twists and turns, and people helping and fucking over each other in equal measure. Bacon is the star of the show, he just looks like he's have class craic playing Rhor. Affleck and Damon and producers of the show but god knows what that means in this day and age. Highly recommend it. Obviously watch the first season first.

I watched the fourth series of Fargo recently. It was a bit slower to get going than the previous three series, but once it got going it was very good. I was surprised at how good a straight actor Chris Rock was in this.
Currently watching a couple of things on box sets ... firstly the BBC Three sitcom Young Offenders, set in Cork, Ireland. Really well written and acted, very funny but also very touching and sentimental. It's had me laughing one minute and crying the next. Halfway through season 2 of 3 so far. The other one is the Italian series Gomorrah. Made by Sky, originally released in Italy but then re-released a few years ago with subtitles. It's set mainly in Naples, about the Camorra, drugs, organised crime etc ... very gritty, quite graphic in places. It was recommended to me ages ago, but I don't always like subtitled programmes, so put it off for a while. But really glad I watched it now, on Season 3, episode 5 so far. There are 4 seasons and apparently a fifth and final season is being produced.
