Just finished watched “Pretend It’s a City” on Netflix. Essentially a lifetime of stories from Fran Lebowitz. It’s made by Martin Scorsese, him sitting talking to her... in different settings... plus others interviewing her as well, in present time and back in time. The city of New York is a huge part of the show. I loved it. Probably not everyone’s cup of tea, but it was amusing throughout and downright funny at times.

I also watched “The History of Swear Words”. Not bad, the history bit is interesting... which could probably be told in one episode. The funny bits uneven, especially Nicholas Cage. I enjoyed it though, enough to get to the end.

Theme music is brilliant too.
I've been having a bit of a look around the Internet to find out what's good, and if there's anything worth picking up. Supposedly, Succession is the show - the Internet's critical darling that succeeds Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and the like (searched the thread afterwards to find this post). Hasn't aired since 2019 though, despite another season being on the way.

I usually ignore everybody's TV suggestions because I have enough on my watchlist, but this one might get a run.
