New and Noteworthy…


CB Strike This detective series debuted this past week.  Afghanistan war veteran turned private detective Cormoran Strike solves brutal murders with the help of his trusted assistant Robin Ellacott.  I loved the first episode and am intrigued with the relationship between Strike and his assistant, the gritty London locations, and the whole picture of British society that is depicted.  Very impressed, so far.
Succession This series debuts tonight and follows a dysfunctional American global-media family.  Great cast features Brian Cox, Hiam Abbas, Kieran Culkin, etc.  Think the Murdoch family meets King Lear.  Lifestyles of the rich and ruthless. Black comedy ensues!
The Fourth Estate This 4 part documentary series takes you behind the scenes of journalism.  The incredible first episode focuses on the NYTimes coverage of Trump’s first year in office. Episode 2 concentrates on the NYTimes coverage of James Comey’s memoir.
