    3rd Rock from the Sun.

    Enjoyed it immensely. Only saw a few episodes when it originally aired and getting to see it from beginning to end was nice. Not super smart writing in the middle seasons and just got silly toward the end but Lithgow never mailed it in once. Always a solid performance.

    I loved it. Just finished the series finale. Worth the watch. I didn't remember that many dirty jokes when I watched it the first time but the series definitely got dirtier the longer it went on.

      It's a lot of fun. It's more in line with the original novel rather than the movie and can be a pretty intense crime drama in places. There is a lot of extremely dark humor.

        Speaking of Jack Ryan, finally got around to watching this. What a great take on the character. The acting is superb, especially the Ryan/Greer dynamic.

        Mrs Rabbit keeps busting my hump over it. She keeps asking if I'm "aroused" when we watch, because I am, uh...yeah. invested.

              Watched Raising Dion on Netflix with my kid. The kid who plays Dion is a marginal actor, but he’s 8.

              There’s a surprise twist toward the end that caught me completely unawares. As a guy who is rarely surprised by plot twists, I was pleasantly surprised.

              Series is a B overall, but this was about finding something to watch with my kid.

              Might check out Vinland Saga because mentioned earlier.
              Shut the hell up and train.

                We got the Disney thing. So, all of the Star Wars enterprise is in our near future.

                  we still have 3 days, 17 hours, 54 mins and 27 seconds until it launches here.

                  Paradoxically, being 18 hours in the future places us firmly 6 days and 6 hours into the past.

                    Pretty sure that was a Star Trek show. Scott Bakula.

                      Yes, it was called Quantum Leap.

                      The finale of this show left me in tears for a week.

                      Just like the 3 months I had to wait in 1990 to see if Picard was going to stay a Borg. Awful.

                        I'm not exactly looking forward to the lego ones.

                        Scott Bakula was not as good a captain as Dean Stockwell was a villain (BSG).

                          I think that'st the only way to fix both franchises. Star Wars: Enterprise

                          Spock and Chewbacca team up to curb stomp the Sith-Borg

                          Edit: Luke Skywalker comes back from the dead and isn't pigeon-holed into a Yoda figure. Jar-Jar finally reveals himself as the secret Sith Overlord running the show. Anakin comes back from the dead and says it's OK to kill younglings because they don't exist and it's a stupid name anyway.

                          Kylo Ren and Mary Sue finally just get a room together.

                          R2-D2 and C3P0 become roommates and open a bookstore in New Cloud City.

                          Lando Calrissien returns and explains how everybody else was invited back for the sequels except the one black guy in the entire galaxy except for Flynn.

                          Edit 2: and somebody explain Flynn to me.

                          Is he clone? Was he born in a vat or is this what the Empire does with all the orphans they make? Whats the deal with that serial number? Is he just bad at everything or are the storm troopers designed to be incompetent so they can't stab the Empire in the back like they did the Old Republic and Jedi? Is that it? Is he doomed to be comic relief forever?

                            I think you mean Finn? He's also in South Park, but his name, there, is Token. If that doesn't explain it, I don't know what will.

                            The entire world is an episode or three of Seinfeld. I'm feeling particularly nihilistic, this evening, hopefully it doesn't show.

                              The Mandalorian is great so far.

                                I was pissed that Disney cancelled the planned Boba Fett movie. There was a short lived fan theory that the Mandalorian is actually Fett, but the lead actor gave a different name (Din Jarron).

                                Still, the timeline is right and if you were a bounty hunter on the lam post Imperials, hiding from the New Republic, you might want a name change and a new suit...I'm holding out that Schrodinger Fett is in fact, alive and maybe turning over a new leaf.
