I enjoyed The Kominsky Method, I’m not as old as Michael Douglas but I like the “old guy” comedy.

Same here.  What I like about the show is that these guys are in the downslide of their lives, but are working through it, through the pain of loss, the realization that they were less than perfect parents, and still they live their lives and have a laugh or two.  The depiction of the grieving process is really pretty spot on- it's not just a day or two.  It's weeks, months, maybe more.  And when you're feeling better about things something reminds you of your lost loved one and it all rushes back (like the dress).  The main characters are flawed but somehow live with themselves, just like all of us.

I just finished watching this new documentary that came out called The Russian Five https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8006926

Its about the 1990's Detroit Red Wings & the whole impact of bringing over Federov, Konstantinov, Larinov, Koslov & Fetisov that they had on that franchise & on the NHL as a whole.

It was really well done & even though i kinda hated Detroit when i was a kid, it gave me a new perspective on that team & their success & i thought i'd share it here in case any of you would be interested in checking it out.

You can probably find it on Netflix or if you can't i can give you a weblink to stream it from my computer if you want.

I also have a massive library of tv series & movies. Close to 3,000 titles hand picked in my collection. Heres a list in case anyone is interested. https://justpaste.it/6kyqf If theres something on that list you wanna watch, just let me know & i can give you a link to stream it from my pc as well.

I watched the Russian Five on a plane a few months ago -- it was great.

Thanks for the streaming offer too!

Yeah it was, im glad i took a chance & watched it.

In the early part of the documentary, i was struck by a comment their GM Jim Devellano said a few years into their rebuild about how he was "nervous" that they hadn't improved as much as they had hoped. It made me think of Jbot & how here we are in the same situation. I bet or i would at least hope that Jbot is feeling nervous as well. It took Detroit 6-7 years after drafting Yzerman (our Eichel) before they were able to get Federov & start putting an outstanding team together. Gave me a little hope that the years we've wasted with Jack could still be salvaged. All we need now is to draft Federov haha.

Just watching Cheers for the first time. Man, they don't write shows like this anymore. Very clever, very unique/good characters

Cheers for the first time ? Wow congrats. I do my level best to not watch sitcoms. I have yet to watch a single episode of friends despite Jens hard nipples. I just cannot tolerate laughtracks.
