    I've only seen the first two episodes, but I am really liking Amazon Prime's "Tales From the Loop." Based on the a Swedish series, but moved to Ohio, it's kind of if Eureka were directed by Igmar Bergman, but it manages to be just solid enough storytelling and the best Twilight Zone endings since the original Twilight Zone. Be patient. It's worth it!

    I've finally watched all episodes of Tales From the Loop. Some episodes are better than others, but the whole thing is amazing. The final episode was directed by Jodie Foster. Each story stands on it's own, but there is also an overall story being told about recurring characters. There is a lot of levels to each story. Well worth the journey.

    @scjjtt Scott, there is a surprisingly gratuitous sex scene in episode 3. I'm not a prude and I don't mind explicit sex as long as it fits in the storytelling. And while it made sense these characters would explore having sex with each other, the explicitness of this scene felt unnecessary given the otherwise tenderness of the story. Just wanted to warn you in case you would rather not indulge this. The series is otherwise pretty family friendly.

    After you posted about 'Tales...' the Times mentioned it too.

    For anyone who watches Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
    the new season begins on May 27, aka, next Wednesday.

    Time for me to start binge-watching season 6 40x40-man-facepalming-type-4_1f926-1f3fd-200d-2642-fe0f-picsay.png .

    I thought it was done, too. I'm lost. I'm going to have to rewatch at least the last episode...maybe more.
