      Trailer says "on Hulu".  But thanks for this.  Lots of actors I enjoy watching.

      2016 Goals: Lose the 10lbs I gained for not having goals

        Speaking of sinking of teeth...we've been bingeing True Blood on HBO for a couple of weeks. It's pure guilty pleasure viewing. Sometimes it is just SO BAD that it's amazing.

        '20 Goals:

        Survive the 'Rona • Cover 4000 miles (3300 on-bike, 700 on-foot) • Duathlon podiums • Keep bustin' ass -1 lung lobe and assorted guts parts • Continue showing Cancer that it's not welcome back. Ever. • Improve power:weight ratio • $1000

         

        Getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to

        remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air.

          could be, for some reason I thought Amazon, I could be wrong and often am!

            A couple of recs...

             

            Schitt's Creek is fantastic. It just ended, but there's 6 season's worth of shows to dive into. Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara are absolutely brilliant in it.

             

            I burned through Upload on Amazon in 2 days - there were a couple parts that frustrated me with the show but in general I really liked it. It's a good story of personal growth and what makes us human. I am a huge fan of The Good Place, and there are similar themes in play in Upload.

             

            Miracle Workers is fantastic - it's two seasons that are each individual anthologies - the only thing in common between the 2 seasons is the actors. Both stories are well told, and very thoughtful, while also being incredibly funny.

             

            And, I cannot recommend What We Do in the Shadows highly enough. The fake documentary theme is definitely a bit stale in general, but this is a fresh take on it with a wonderful story to tell, and it's told very well.

                I didn't see that - now I am looking forward to next season even more. His episode was awesome!

                    Mrs. America -- series about the ERA movement in the 70s.  Does a great (and I'd say not uncharitable) portrayal of Phyllis Schlafly (Anti-ERA mastermind).   Hulu.

                    One day at a time

                      Lenox Hill is an excellent, one-season documentary about a hospital in New York City.  So good!  They filmed an extra episode for a month when COVID-19 was raging.  It was moving to see the nurses and doctors in tears - these were people who had been very stoic during the regular series.

                        Dark on Netflix.

                         

                        It's German, but has available English overdub.

                        It's like Hot Tub Time Machine; if written and performed by Germans.

                          DEVS - on Amazon

                          If you love probabilistic meta-physics and inconsolable loss, this is 100% for you.  I am such the target audience.  Thank you so much for the recommendation.  It's rather meh early on, but episode 6 is both the most boring and the most beautiful.  After that it's just gold.

                            DAVE - on Hulu.

                             

                            I know you usually expect some high-brow suggestions from me, but give me a second:

                             

                            "DAVE" is Lil'Dickey's TV series. Not quite "Woody Allen meets 12yo dick-jokes" but not far, either.   But mixed in with its light fare is a thread of real emotional honesty that hits with the surprise and force of a Bruce Lee 1" punch.  I think it's episode 6, where the show dips into the past to show what is at stake.  This, and the last episode which ends with a high-stakes, set-for-failure, episode with Charlemagne (who is some known podcaster, I guess), really delivers.

                             

                            At its root, this is a: categorically uncool guy tries to make it in a field dominated by king-of-the-hill level coolisms.  Fish, out of water, races Ursain Bolt.

                             

                            If you're not familiar with Lil'Dickey: this is a good intro [NSFW] (link skips first 52 seconds, but if language is your thing just move on)

                              Family Tree! HBO comedy by Christopher Guest starring Chris O'Dowd. I believe there are only 8 episodes, but it's easy to find and so worth your time. Hilarious, sweet, and great performances. Check it out!

                                Has anybody mentioned Party Tricks, a short Australian political series available on Prime?  Asher Keddie is great.
