    Nice round-up man. To tell you the truth, I was pretty disappointed with Louie’s fifth season. I still love the show and pretty much everything Louie C.K. touches, but the most recent season felt kind of derivative of past years. And as you know I do love It’s Always Sunny and I think its sixth season might be its best.

      I loved the new season of Louie — the Michael Rappaport episode was especially great — but it did leave me wanting more. Hopefully we haven’t seen the last of the show.

      It’s amazing how consistently funny It’s Always Sunny is. I’m nearly done with the seventh season now, and it’s just as hilarious as the others.

    Nice bunch of movies, there. The Overnight was an odd, but interesting watch. Same for Housebound. I love Galaxy Quest, Straight Outta Compton, and Spy. Haven’t seen the rest, yet.

    • Eric says:

      Thanks man, pretty much agree with you there. The Overnight and Housebound were fun Netflix picks, and Straight Outta Compton and Spy were two of the better films I saw from last year.

    I gave the same score to Straight Outta Compton. An enjoyable time capsule to an era I was interested in learning about. Although it missed out on masterpiece for me by shying away from Dr Dre’s alleged beating of women, which sort of undermines the larger free speech issues the musicians are endorsing.

    • Eric says:

      Yeah, I was kind of disappointed that Straight Outta Compton left out such crucial details like that. I felt like we didn’t really get the full picture, but it was still a great film for what was presented. Not gonna lie, it also got me back on an old school rap kick after watching it.. 😀

      • Chris says:

        I remember I too looked up a few songs after I had watched the movie. I’ve yet to delve properly into the golden age of hip hip. I’m still busy with 1980-81. I recommend And You Don’t Stop: 30 Years of Hip Hop (2004). Wendell (in the comments here) will back me up that it’s worthwhile. He ranked it #1 in his ranking of hip hop documentaries.

    • Eric says:

      Making a Murderer was definitely infuriating. It’s scary to think our justice system is so broken that something like that can happen, especially since nothing has changed today.
