    Get Me Roger Stone
    You'll need a shower after watching this, but it's a great doc about a sleazy political broker, his rise from Watergate Republican dirty tricks and how we got our current (temporary?) Russia-loving president. πŸ–₯

    Enjoyed first two seasons more. 😬πŸ–₯

    It's weird to watch a time travel movie where the "present" is now further back in time than the "past" was when it was filmed. Young Cage. Coppola. Rewatch. πŸ–₯

    Friends from College
    πŸ–₯ Great cast, depressing drama. Would've loved it if it was more focused on the comedy and set in, say Minneapolis-St Paul or Omaha or Nashville, instead of NYC.
