      The Bill Callahan era began here at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. For the first quarter it was really,really bad football being played by both teams. 
      The Redskins were determined to establish the Run game. The First Quarter all they established was that they still couldn’t run. Or pass. Or do much of anything. 
       
      It wasn’t until the 2nd Quarter that Peterson was able to start ripping the worst Run D in the League for chunks of 18 & 24 yards. The Skins managed to score a TD with a 25 yard pass to Scary Terry McLaurin. 
       
      The Dolphins would open the Second Half only managing five plays before the Redskins would get the ball punted back to them. They would run a balanced run/pass attack of six plays for 70 yards in 1:25 ending in McLaurin’s second touchdown of the day. The Defense would then get a turnover allowing the Offense to get to Field Goal range and add another 3 points to make the score 17-3. 
       
      To open the Fourth Quarter, Hopkins would miss a 55 yard Field Goal, leaving the score at 17-3.  After being sacked five times, the Dolphins would pull their own switcharoo at QB and go to Ryan “Neckbeard” Fitzpatrick which resulted in a touchdown drive for them, making it 17-10. They went for & recovered the Onside Kick. They also managed to not score any points after that. The Dolphins would find theirselves with ball at the 2:00 Warning. Fitzpatrick would take them on a 9 play 75 yard touchdown drive with six seconds remaining on the clock. Miami went for the win with the 2 Point Conversion and failed. The Redskins would recover the onside kick by Miami and Keenum took a knee to get the Redskins their first win of the season.

Guys I need recommendations on the next TV series I should start watching.

Recommended Posts

Wife and I binged the show You (on Netflix) this past Sunday/Monday.  It had been popping up on those recommended shows/movies when you launch the app and their trending now bar.  She had to go to the store, told me to stop Punisher season 2.  I was bored, gave it a shot, next thing I know we are hooked and on episode 4.

 

It's a psychological thriller about a book store worker that becomes obsessed with a woman (inspiring writer) that comes in the store.  He is so obsessed, he starts watching her and inserts himself into her life.  What transpires later is just crazy, creepy, etc.  Very good show, imo.  First episode or two started slow, enough to make you think where the show was going but leaving you wondering too.  

 

The season finale ending/cliffhanger was great, setting up what should be a great season 2 later in the year.

The funny thing is no one hardly watched You on Lifetime. Netflix picks it up and now 40mil have reportedly streamed it.

 

Greg Berlanti (of Dawson's Creek, Riverdale, Sabrina, Brothers & Sisters name) co-created it so it should have been seen even on Lifetime. I read a story about it the other day and now I'll probably add it to my queue.

Punisher Season 2 is out.

 

 

From the posts that came along after this one, I may be the only one NOT digging season 2. The direction this show has gone since the Daredevil/Punisher season just doesn't feel like the comic book version of the character and his life. I'm not even enjoying Bernthal's portrayal of the character.

 

I just finished episode 6. Hopefully it gets better (for me) from here.

I watched a Netflix doc the other day called "Abduction in Plain Sight." Naturally I was mad at the perp because of the obvious reasons but MAN WAS I MAD AT THE PARENTS OF THE VICTIM. Anyway, good doc but jeez some parents are frigging stupid.

I think you will like the ending/surprise and you might as well just finish it since you are half in anyways. 

 

The premise of season 2 was to show the Punisher's caring side by having this 16 years old in it from what I read the writers wanted.

I liked the John Pilgrim (Preacher) character. He is original to the show, but perhaps a little to much like the Punisher, when the show already had Billy Russo. I liked the dimension that the girl brought to the Punisher. (I thought the ending was predictable). It is still worth it to finish it.

@zskins Thanks, I will finish this out.

 

@Yohan I'm really annoyed by Billy Russo/Jigsaw so far this season. The guy is overacting and it's driving me crazy.  😄

I have finished season 2.  I didn't care for have both Billy Russo and the Preacher.  It felt like competing story lines.  The rest I will put in a spoiler.

 

Spoiler

I get the ending with Billy Russo and the Punisher killing him.  The whole "he doesn't remember but still acts like an evil dude because that's what he is" was good for character development but I think they could have done it better.  I'm just glad Russo is dead.  Wish they had killed him off earlier to focus more on the other story line.  Having him just stumble around about to die for a while was wasted time.  Just have been a small battle between the two in the middle of the season and had Russo die then.  But whatever, I never expected award winning plot lines in a show like that anyways.  And I did like the ending.

Interesting...this was recommended to me last year and I actually forced myself to get through a season, but it was just too heavy and slow for me.

Anyone watching Deadly Class? The first two eps have been wild (and I've read the source material it's based on). Can't believe SyFy is putting out this show and allowing it to be this good.

I'm seeing a lot of cyber-love for this show. I'll have to dive in this weekend.

The comic is better but I've accepted that a true adaptation of this type of material isn't doable. Even so, having the author (Rich Remender) as part of the TV show production has helped. Plus the 80s mostly punk soundtrack is badass

Also loving it, TEG. I read the comics too, and they pretty well nailed the casting.

Wife and I are two episodes in to Sex Education.  It's really funny, though definitely not something you want on if you have kids up and about.

I just finished that show up yesterday.  It is pretty funny and Gillian Anderson still has it.  After watching the X-Files years ago, it's nice to see her in a completely different role.  I don't know if you watched The Fall (used to be on Netflix), but she's a detective in that show, but super slutty.

Watched the first few episodes of Project Blue Book on History.

Not bad,, good cast. Interesting enough.. decent effects.

Purely dramatized, but still, fun with the original incidents.
