Is this EO an attempt to distract from the 100k? Or the attempt to move the RNC convention? Or the attempt to order churches ...

Re: What are you watching on TV these days?

I'm watching Scott & Bailey on Amazon Prime. About two female detectives in Manchester and their female boss. And the bumbling and sexist male detectives senior and junior to them. Not a happy marriage nor a competent male figure anywhere. And it's not a comedy. I love the first few seasons. Amelia...

"Balthazar" is back with season 2 on Amazon. I think it's Acorn. It's the medical examiner as brilliant detective who is mentally unstable and few people can stand trope. I thought season 1 was pretty good. Oh, and he sees dead people, so there's that.
