A friend of mine is directing some episodes of Season 2 (The haunting of Bly Manor). It's a bit chaotic. Apparently at one stage Flanagan wanted to hire Greg Sestro for one of the leads.

Just finished Season 2 of Jack Ryan. It was great. Clearly some plot holes here and there, along with some strange character drop offs from Season 1...but overall and enjoyable watching experience.

I must also say, Wendell Pierce may be my favorite supporting actor out there today. He's great in Jack Ryan and I loved him in Suits and Ray Donovan.


Also almost done with the current season of This Is Us. It's good, but not great, and it reminds me that it's really hard to consistently make a great television show, year in and year out. Although in a time when almost all of the shit on network television is complete...well...shit...it is miles head of everything else.

Watching The Curse of Oak Island on History. I sometimes wonder to myself...am I still watching this because I like it, or because I don't want to miss them finding something? Sometimes it's maddening.

Lastly, I'm a few episodes into Treadstone on USA Network. It's pretty good, but I am reserving judgment until the first season is over.

He's excellent in Treme. It was one of those shows I couldn't stop watching until it was done.

I think he wanted to meet the "good looking but rather bland actor" quota. Oliver Jackson-Cohen was that guy last season.
