Curb Your Enthusiasm: (HBO Go) We’ve started with the first episode of the first season of the Larry David half-hour comedy, and are really enjoying it.
Slings and Arrows: (Acorn) We took our 30-day free trial on Acorn (only available to Prime Video subscribers) especially to watch one of our all-time favorites. The three seasons of the show are concerned with the actors and the crew of the New Burbage Festival, a Shakespearean theatre group. Geoffrey Tennant (Paul Gross) returns to the New Burbage Theatre Festival, the site of his greatest triumph and most humiliating failure, to assume the artistic directorship after the sudden death of his mentor, Oliver Welles. When Geoffrey arrives he finds that Oliver is still there, in spirit anyway, and with his guidance (and often in spite of it) Geoffrey attempts to reconcile with his past while wrestling the festival back from the marketing department. Despite a scheming general manager, he manages to stage a remarkable production of Hamlet -- the play that drove him mad. The second season they produce Macbeth, and in the final season the play is King Lear. We didn’t like it as much the second time as we did the first time. Perhaps we’ve become irritated by dead people hallucinations, of which there seems to be an epidemic on regular TV. If you haven’t seen the series, and aren’t put off by the dead Oliver Welles appearing through all three seasons, we think you’d enjoy it. Paul Gross is wonderful, and he is surrounded by an outstanding cast. In the first season, the ingénue is a very young Rachel McAdams.
Bosch: We are watching the 6th season which has recently been released on Amazon Prime Video.
