I'm really looking forward to trying Fargo and Atlanta as well.
I wasn't sure at first but I watched the first season of the Hulu Original Future Man and really enjoyed it. I think the second season is set to debut in January 2019.

JAck Ryan on Amazon prime is good. Avoided it for a while, due to my notion of it having a hackneyed theme, white good superman vs bad muslims. Still some of that, but Krasinski is good as well as Wendell Pierce (The Wire). They do some humanizing of Middle Eastern characters (and then kill them off....ok not sure -3 episodes in)

compared to Baldwin, or H Ford. he is more plausible as #s analyst guy and they let you know he's buff and has a backstory. Jim pulls it off.

Also, commenced my 3rd free trial membership with Amazon prime. Got my calendar reminder set to cancel, and know where the cancel option is buried on the their site. Middle-aged Man strikes again.

What's your secret? I'm a current Prime member. Is there a trick to getting trial memberships? Would like to knock down that $120/year expense at all if I can.

Infrequent user of the streaming video. And random with shipping needs, normally the standard cheapest/slowest is good enough. (it still is quick)

Seems like it has been at least 6 months since last time (watched a couple seasons of The Wire then) Twice it was by accident/Amazon trickery, when clicking to buy something it signed me up.

Tales From the Tour Bus on Cinemax is incredible. Mike Judge animated documentaries about legendary musicians.
