The one thing that made me think he was not guilty, even though I saw none of the court episodes, was the fact that there was no physical evidence of the gruesome murder in the room.

Shit gets real in the courtroom, and his defense attorneys pour on a mountain of evidence. Like...........the local cop (who was active in the 1985 wrongful conviction) calls into dispatch to check the licence plate of the missing young lady's car, this is after she is found missing, but before the car is found intact on the junkyard property. The dispatch verified that it was the plate of the missing person case active, then he says "Toyota Rav 4, right"? she confirms. That stunk to high hell.

Vinyl. HBO. Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger are behind it. About the record industry in the 70's. I've only watched the pilot and it is awesome. Highly recommended.

My favorite part of Bernie Sanders running for president is Larry David's portrayal. Best SNL political take since Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. Of course, Larry David reading the phone book would make me laugh.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

Mr. Robot has been good.
I've added Superstore to the DVR.
I like Undatable enough that I hope they don't cancel it.
I'll soon get started on catching up with Better Call Saul, TWD, and my favorite show, Shameless.
Fear The Walking Dead quickly turned into The Walking Dead: Pacific Standard Time but I like it.
By using the El Dorado Atmospheric and Oceanic temperatures thermal map. I caculated the contrary direction where the polar jet stream is going and it didn't look pretty.

Been watching the British series "Foyle's War" on Netflix; great 40's "war on the homefront" show.
Also hooked on a silly little cop/mystery show from Canada called "Murdoch Mysteries" about a cop from the Victorian era in Toronto who uses not-yet invented technologies to solve murders. Very kitschy and fun.
Also all the "Mysteries at the ..." shows on the Travel Channel. Fun little historical tidbits about castles, monuments and museums

Speaking of HBO, Silicon Valley is pretty damn great.

BBC/PBS's Downton Abbey is over and I'm a little bummed. The most recent corollary, I think, is the demise of Drew & Mike, and my interpretation is the same: media characters & personalities work their way into one's psyche to a point where in spite of logic they feel like familiar friends and so are grieved when they go away. It's easy to laugh at the sad faces when a run comes to an end and fans are overwrought over what is crafted as commercial entertainment (David Bowie, not a pop singer with a flouncy stage presence but a beacon and a hero for repressed gay culture; M.A.S.H, not a shitty sitcom with a laugh-track but poignant commentary on post-Kennedy/-Camelot disappointment; etc.). Still, for reasons right or wrong, things feel a little empty on this day after the finale.
