  1. I’ve been flat on my back for three days and I did what I would consider my first “binging” of TV. While I watched some great show, I’m glad to be back at work. Besides watching the final episodes of Season Two of Bosch on Amazon (wonderful), I watched Fleabag on Amazon (Hilarious, until the final episode when it’s kinda devastating), One Mississippi on Amazon (very poignant and funny), and Stranger things on Netflix (you have to hold out until episode 3, then just try to stop). The only thing I wanted to watch on network tv last night was The Big Bang Theory. As usual with this series, the episodes start a little choppy as the cast gets back into the groove after their summer break.
