Series and Shows

Last show Ive attempted to watch is "Ballers", by far the weakest show Ive seen in years. It really, really sucks. It has Dwayne The Rock Johnson in the lead, so that explains a bit. That man is so insecure, it is oozing off the screen. Plus he can not act. And the show is about footballers and their managers, and has a lot of scantily clad and very repulsive whores in it. No women, just whores. It sucks.

Ballers: just sucks.

The show I watched before that is the last season of Silicon Valley, which is one of my favourite shows. It is created by Mike Judge who also did Beavis And Butthead.

Ive further tried the shows Taboo, The Crown, Game of Thrones, Harlots, these all suck.

The quality of tv as we all know radically improved around the year 2000, starting with The Sopranos, which as an artwork can go toe to toe with any renaissance art. Its fantastic.

The best of all these shows that Ive seen is The Shield. The story of a police department in Los Angeles, in particular focusing on an out of bounds "Strike Team" headed by a cop that is rather thorough in applying pressures where he sees it fit.

Unlike any other show Ive watched, The Shield is a single narrative, one giant story-arc that has no sideshows. It consists of seven seasons, all of them riveting, and the end of the last episode is a pitch perfect consequence of the beginning of the first. It surpasses Renaissance art; it is Greek. Perhaps not coincidentally, the leading actor, Michael Chiklis, is of Greek descent.

For anyone who has watched the show I can recommend the making of - this shows you how emotionally involved the actors and the writers were with this show. It had become absolutely indistinguishable from reality for them.

One great discovery of this show is Walton Goggins, who as hillbilly cop Shane Vendrell gives the performance of the century.
