The Last Dance is a TV mini-series starring Phil Jackson, Michael Jordan, and David Aldridge. Charting the rise of the 1990’s Chicago Bulls, led by Michael Jordan, one of the most notable dynasties in sports history.
I’ve never been a big fan of the NBA (I much prefer NCAA basketball where there tends to be considerably more defense), but in the 1990s I was very much a fan of Michael Jordan. This ESPN documentary (currently available on Netflix in the United States) is a fascinating look back at Jordan’s career and (what we thought was) his final season and NBA Finals run in 1998.
A hapless UN employee discovers that the agency he works for is hiding a gateway to a parallel dimension that’s in a cold war with our own, and where his other self is a top spy. The war slowly heats up thanks to spies from both sides.
After repeated mentions by Jason Snell on the podcast Tim Goodman’s TV Talk Machine, I finally watched Counterpart. The show originally aired on Starz and is now available on Amazon Prime Video.
The show can be a bit confusing to follow at times, so I’d limit multitasking as much as possible. Without spoiling anything, there’s not much else I can say other than the show is so good that I wish it had been picked up for a third season.
