Guess This List Is HBO (TV Binge Session)

The trill is gone. The trill is gone away. Halt and Catch Fire has been CTRL, ALT and you know the rest. This show will be missed and years from now, people will find this masterpiece and be shocked it was canceled.  They should look in the mirror and see why (Cause you didn't watch).  That's not what this is even about. Just wanted to toss that out there. 

Let's just get to the shows I been watching lately.  

Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO)
Maybe it's cause they have been away and we missed they face; this season is one of the best. I don't know. Just something about this current season is killing me.  "Thank You for Your Service" falls into the top five episodes in this show history. This is prime Larry David shit right here. From the mail lady to the golf club and the Revolutionary War reenactment. Top fucking five.

 The Deuce (HBO)
I swear that is not a promotion for HBO. They just have my eye on these two. I tweeted about this show a couple times. Join in on some off-hours live tweeting. From the creators of The Wire. The Deuce tells the story of the legalization and ensuing rise of the porn industry in New York beginning in the 1970s. Themes explored include the violence of the drug epidemic and the resulting real estate booms and busts that coincided with the change. The show's title is derived from the nickname for 42nd Street between Seventh Avenue and Eighth Avenue. This is one of the drive digs that The Wire do. Taking something that the world looks down upon and giving it heart. 

Vice Principals (HBO)
Well, I didn't know that I watch this must HBO. Really didn't mean for this to turn HBO heavy. It is what it is and now it is (Sounds like I'm rapping). Anyways, we gonna get a part two. Everything, not HBO. Unlike me, I think that Danny McBride is doing things like this on purpose. He keeps being apart of shows that have short runs.  East Bound and Down. Over the top series that followed the life of a washed up, foul mouth baseball player. Kenny Powers. That series was four seasons. Cool. Now he comes back to HBO and he fucking with us at this point. Vince Principals was always meant to be just two seasons. Two. Seasons. That's the interesting take on this show. They went in from day one knowing when it would end so leading to the close wouldn't be a surprise that would lead holes in the story.  Vice Principals focuses on ill-tempered, dogmatic, and disliked vice principal of North Jackson High School Neal Gamby, and his ambitions of being promoted to the principal's chair when the principal is due to step down

That space between the movie being in theaters and when it comes out on DVD or some streaming service seem to be getting shorter but this one seems long as hell. I feel like HBO been teasing this coming for the longest. It should have been Halloween. It came (finally) last week. I have been wanting to see this movie for the longest after seeing it a while ago. Movie theater here didn't even have it. I actually would have been shocked if they did. Anyways. I had to drive 30 minutes to see it. Regardless, I love the movie and I can watch it whenever I want to. 

 Hidden Figures (HBO)
This movie is Black Girl Magic. I really don't need to say no more.

Let me know what y'all have been watching. Leave a comment or hit me on Twitter/Instagram

P.S. I really won't be saying more about Hidden Figures. Black Girl Magic should be enough.
