On HBO Max we are enjoying working through Home at the moment… British sitcom about a Syrian refugee seeking asylum… some cringe worthy moments all handled with humor
were you that kid in High School who talked with the fake British accent?

no but...

the family spent a year aboard in England when my brother and I were in elementary school.  we both came back with accents and were sent to the   school's speech therapist because our teachers thought there was an issue with the way we talked... the note that came back from the speech therapist was that they wished they could talk like us...  accents faded pretty quickly

also my anglophile card has been temporarily suspended because i spelled humor without the extra u

Am I the only one, who thought Northern Exposure was dumb?

I watched one or two episodes of the Wire but couldn't take all the cursing. I did love Homicide and Treme.

Edit: meant to put that in the Flies thread but guess it works here too

I enjoyed Northern Exposure when it was on but can only imagine it has not aged well. I had two housemates who were from Germany, we used to gather around the little TV for Northern Exposure and Seinfeld.

I never saw Northern Exposure in its time, and can confirm it is currently unwatchable.

Too much cursing already at home?

I don't like excessive cursing, be it at home, on TV, in song, anywhere. My dad cursed excessively, always in anger, never in humor, and it was disgusting.

I could see this but for it’s time I thought it featured good writing and was innovative…

not sure if this is prestige or not, but jon stewart is back on via apple tv+.

'The Problem With Jon Stewart' takes a serious leap into advocacy journalism
https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/30/entertainment/the-problem-with-jon-stewart-review/index.html

Jon Stewart Isn’t Laughing
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-features/jon-stewart-thr-cover-story-interview-1235013623/
He understands if you are delighted by his return to TV. But like the subjects he'll cover on Apple's 'The Problem With Jon Stewart,' his comeback is a little more complicated: "It’s 'The Daily Show,' but less entertaining — but also maybe more complete."

there are clips on youtube, and they claim the first episode will stream for free but i can't figure out where/how.  time to fire up the torrents...

We watch Apple TV+ on our Roku

Looks like streaming from the app to a chromecast device would work

It’s also available on a number of smart tvs
