Shows I'm anticipating - new seasons coming soon???

Feel free to post anything unrelated to wet shaving or men's grooming (I.e. cars, watches, pens, leather goods. You know, the finer things of life).

The current season of ALONE takes place in Mongolia. Population per square mile : 2. Wilderness with plenty of poisonous snakes, wild animals, etc. Temperatures lower than 40 below. If any of the contestants should tap out, it takes about an hour for the rescue team to arrive. I'm on episode 3.

Now that Goliath season 2 has been released on Amazon Prime, I've been watching Billy Bob Thornton in episode 1 and looking forward to the series. My wife is going to sign up for the new show called Yellowstone.

Re: Goliath. I finished off the entire 8 episodes, and I hated it. The first 7 episodes were sleepwalking lead characters and a slaughterhouse extraganza for the extreme evil characters. Episode 8 was deeply disturbing because good did not prevail. All of the good characters got tortured and murdered by the evil characters. Disappointment in the story line gradually increased until at the end it was clear that good lost and evil easily won. This series is excretia. Pardon my French. :x PS: Billy Bob Thornton, shame on you!

I just learned that "Better Call Saul" is finally returning in August. A lot happened in the previous season, leading me to believe that this will be the season where Jimmy becomes Saul and starts working for Walter.

I was disappointed by the one episode I saw of the Amazon series based on Philip K. Dick's science fiction stories. (They also have a series based on The Man in the High Castle, which I've read more than once. I haven't watched it; not sure if I want to risk more disappointment.)

Paul, I'm looking forward to Better Call Saul for the same reasons you have listed. It should be a good season.
A few months ago I watched The Man in the High Castle, season 1. I haven't read the book, and as of yet I haven't made the transition to Season 2, even though it is available for viewing.

How much consulting of the I Ching do they do in the show?

Paul, you've got me there. I haven't a clue.

It took a while, but I have completed watching Narcos. Based on facts, it is an interesting and well-done (in my opinion) TV series. The portrayal of extreme violence is hard to take.

Yellowstone with Kevin Costner is currently airing. Free on Paramount channel, and not free on some other channel. We're still trying to get a good feel about it. There's some bad stuff going on, and it seems that good guys are somewhat slow in making their appearances. They're only releasing one new episode weekly.
