I know this thread is the Chappelle ‘Sticks and Stones’ thread — it’s the gift that keeps on giving — but i have to add:

I thought of it again over the weekend when I saw the news about Jussie Smollet, or should I say Joussí Smoliet ;-) about how a judge in Chicago refuses to dismiss the lawsuit, because $100K was spent investigating J.S.’s non-crime.

Agree!

I started watching it with knowing absolutely nothing about it.

I started watching it around 10:30 PM, expecting to watch just the first episode.

I could not tear myself away from it and watched EVERY episode until 5 AM! I passed it on to a few other people, some who had already seen it and some who then watched it. All agreed it was tremendous.

Now I'm in the middle of watching Breaking Bad for the first time ever. In season 2.

I LOVED Nikita!

A friend who urged me to watch it when it first came out revealed to me yesterday that he re-watches it EVERY baseball off season!

It's quite good but I'd still rate several other TV series above it or equal to it:

24

The Killing

Unbelievable

Bosch

Nikita

The Killing is really good. I watched the original version.

Bosch- I’m looking forward to it, but I’m working my way through the novels, first. I do like the actor, Titus Welliver, whom I mainly know as the smoke monster from ‘Lost’.

I guess I watched the first 4-5 seasons of 24. Good, but not as original as BB.

Watched El Camino last night and thought it was pretty good. Obviously wait until after BB before watching if you already haven't (you will probably be confused by the flashbacks if you don't). Like Better Call Saul it's the continuation of the story but featuring Jesse Pinkman's aftermath. Only one episode this time which was probably a good idea.

Which is the original version of The Killing? The one I watched came out on Netflix in 2017?

24 was gripping. The best TV series I have EVER seen. That kept me up until 3 AM many nights. Quite difficult to ever stop watching it. I don't have the similar problem turning off Breaking Bad. But I am looking forward to starting to watch it again in a short while.

I also watched El Camino last night. Agreed, it was pretty good. Not quite in the same league as the best episodes of BB, but still very entertaining with some good action, tense moments, and a few surprising moments.

It’s based on a Danish show. Here, sentence 1:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Killi ... TV_series)
However, I’m starting to wonder if I didn’t just notice all the Scandinavian names, suspect that it was a remake, look up the original show, and then eventually develop a false memory that I’d seen the original show. I might have downloaded the first episode or something. I have watched some Scandinavian crime shows with subtitles, both on Netflix and downloaded, and a lot of it is a blur.

I thought the abortion part was the best. Mostly because he made my "notional abortion" idea funny. I remember talking with some guys at the gym about it, and one of them who just had a kid was kinda horrified ;D
There's this very disturbing set of studies where about half the articles printed in Science and Nature magazines, the two leading publications, involved experiments that could not be repeated by anybody.
