I finished Patriot season 2 last night (Amazon Original show) It felt like a solid advancement of the first season, acting and music continue to be top notch. The writingis still able to pull off some of the most insane things in a totally deadpan way

Watch the documentary instead - it is a way better story.

 

 

Yeah, that looks a lot more interesting, if only because it's real. The story of Marwencol is actually a little small and unassuming for a movie, but wildly exotic for something that actually happened/existed.

Yeah, I also imagine that there are elements in the documentary that film isn't even going to touch. I won't say anything because the way it unravels in the documentary is what makes it jarring, sad and kind of beautiful.

I binged thorugh Sex Education and liked it. It's a story of a teenage boy living with a single mom who works from home as a sex therapist. There's not as many jokes or domestic situations as you could imagine from that description, but instead it's more of a high school drama, but a good one. With the help of a girl who he falls for, the boy discovers that he too has an ability to help people with their sex issues, even though he is not experienced. It has some flaws, but it's overall a warm feeling show.

Yeah I’ll give a +1 to Sex Education. I honestly didn’t expect much of it from the premise but once I started watching I ended up really enjoying it and finished all the episodes within a day or two. The performances in particular are great.
