Sneaky Pete s.1:  Giovanni Ribisi is a con artist just out of jail looking to hide from cop turned crime boss Bryan Cranston.  He fakes himself out as his cellmate to go hang with their estranged extended family in CT.  Who support the family farm with a family bail bonds business.  Lots of good work here in addition to the major players Ribisi, Cranston and Margo Martindale.  And plenty of confidence style action from morally grey people for those who like that.

Frontier s.1:  This show really, really, really wants to be Deadwood.  But on a scale of 1 to 10 Swearengen/Bullocks it barely makes a 3.  And 2 of those are for the glowery presence of Jason Mamoa.  And I have a hard time buying into Alun Armstrong's Lord Benton as hard-case evil badass.  He just comes off as petulant and vindicative.  Really most of the cast is adequate at best.  Plus with only six under-an-hour episodes they kept wasting time on the other fur trade companies out of Montreal instead of the Fort and more on Cree tribal politicking.  Very meh.

Green Room:  Now here we have a movie that fufills all the talk around from last year.  A punker-than-thou band ends up witnessing a murder at a show at a white supremicist club and ends up in a brutal fight for their lives.  One of the late Anton Yelchin's final movies.  Plus Patrick Stewart at the evil Big Boss.
