Didn't watch Yellowstone season premier last night. Am going to record the season and then binge. Something to look forward to. Same with Seal Team.

Just started on season 1 yesterday. Think I'm on episode 7
That is one dysfunctional family.

Squid Games is doing a season 2.

Not sure how I feel about that. Guess I'll know when I watch it.

So, I watched the first episode of the Beatles Documentary "Get Back," that is running on Disney+.

quick background - in 1969, the Beatles started rehearsals for a new album. The sessions were filmed for a movie that was released as "Let it Be" in 1970. But there were hours of footage shot that was not used in the movie.

So recently, director Peter Jackson (of the Lord of the Rings movies) was given permission to take the footage and turn it into a documentary. "Get Back" is now streaming on Disney+. It's in three parts and each part is about 2-1/2 hours.

Have to say, I think it is mostly of interest to Beatles fanatics and music buffs. A lot of footage of the Beatles trying to work out new material in rehearsal. Some of it is just screwing around, but you do get to hear bits of them working out songs that would become "Let it Be," "Get Back" and other songs like "Maxwell's Silver Hammer." Also a lot of discussion about a proposed live concert, and material showing tension in the group, with McCartney arguing with George Harrison while Lennon makes snarky comments. (spoiler alert - Harrison walks out near the end of the episode and says he's quitting the band...)

IMHO it would have benefitted from some editing. parts of it really dragged for me. I'll probably watch the rest of it, but it's not what I expected.

I like the fact that it wasn't done in a "history lesson" fashion. He let the days unfold and since I am a Beatles Freak...I could watch 20 hours of it.

Watching Paul work through a song was incredible. Watching John and Paul play with joy together was even better. I still have part 3 to watch. Most likely tonight.
