Kelsey Grammer earned $1.6 million per episode of Frasier.


It went off the air 15 years ago. Whatever
residuals Grammer collects have been drastically
reduced by now, they go down a certain
% every year.

We play Frazier in the background often in the evening. I keep expecting Netflix to roll it off que. There must be others like us to still enjoy the show very much?

I've been watching rock/mountain climbing shows recently, including Free Solo. Amazing.

Just watched Meru on Amazon. Riveting stuff for an old outdoorsy guy.

Watched them twice already. Great short series. I really like the lines McConaughey recites about religion. I FF through episodes just to rehear how he portrays how people are sucked in.

Finished Bosch, best one ever. Lots of
action. They're filming season 6 right
now. Season 3 of Slippery Pete May10th.
I saw Ricky Jay, must be the last thing
he did before he died.

The first season was amazing.

The second was complete crap.

Didn't watch the third (although I heard it was better than the 2nd).

Cool, still watching the 1st season
Young McConaughey is creepy, older one in the interview drinking beers and cutting cans pretty cool
Really good series, very serious. I really like this after bailing on Killing Eve which I thought was going to be serious but instead was goofy.

My brother has been driving me nuts
to watch Ozark. I tried before, but it
just wasn't believable. I'm up to
ep 6 and it's OK sometimes, but
the plot has soooo many holes.

Everybody in town seems to
know they launder for the
cartel. Their kids know, he told
the local hillbilly crime family
what he did, the sheriff knows,
the FBI has an agent who knows
what they do, living in a motel
in the town.

And they just go freely about their
business with everybody knowing.
But I'm watching it to placate my
brother. I don't see why they
compare this to Breaking Bad.
Nobody knew what Walter was doing
outside of those who were involved.
In Ozark, everybody knows.
