    Another show I'm not sure was mentioned is The Americans. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are a married Russian spy couple living in DC in the early 80s. They have 2 kids that were born in the US that don't know they are spies. I found it to be very entertaining.

    The Rookie is something I enjoy, their latest episode was about the VP visiting and was packed with a lot of action and situations which I like in a show.

      Just finished Jack Ryan. I really liked it and hope for a second season.

        What did you think of the drone pilot?

        I don't know man. I'm sure that is a tough job, but they just hopped in and out a few times with him. It kind of felt out of place with the rest of the story, but something they should explore more if they are going to keep throwing it in there. I felt like it was kind of crammed in there to show a different side since it was not the most PC show from today's brand of TV since most of it focused on the evil done by terrorist groups.

        I thought it was soooooo f**cking stupid and affected. There were a lot of things thrown in by Hollywood writers that mimicked their own political bent that Clancy would have had a fit over. The other glaring example was making Greer a muslim. A totally concocted PC move.

          In real life, drone pilots do get PTSD from killing people. However, the dude in the tv show didn't add anything to the story.

            None. It made no sense. I honestly forgot about him because it did nothing for the show

            It’s a good show. We watch it when making dinner during the week. Nothing deep or anything but it’s entertaining

              Came back to this thread just to mention this. It’s tough to keep up with the pace of the jokes but it’s one of the funniest shows I’ve seen. So quotable. Shoresy man... lol

                I enjoy the Orville, it is sort of like Star Trek of old, but with some stupid PC stuff in it. I don't really like that the person who originated it stars in it.

                  My brother just started with Ozark and says it’s great.

                  The wife and I just finished Narcos - Mexico.
                  Very, very good. Michael Pena is awesome in it.
                  Ties in very well with the first Narcos.

                  Ozarks is awesome. I imagine the plot is going to get stale in season 3 as it becomes a ground hog day plot for each episode, but I finished the 2nd season still very interested. Always been a big fan of Jason Bateman, and the rest of the cast is pretty darn good as well.

                  I am in season 3 of the Columbia Narcos and its pretty cool. I know most is probably fiction but its cool to kinda see the truths behind it. Very interesting.
