    There are several great plot-recap sources on-line and very coupla episodes I would read one just to make sure I had caught everything (I'm batting about .750 which ain't bad!).

    It revealed MJ to be a jerk and a bully, but it also illustrated why's he's the GOAT. His single-minded competitive obsession drove him to constantly see affronts where there were none. He made sure there was always a chip on his shoulder, even though there was absolutely none there. We came out of the 10-part series with a begrudging admiration for his will to be the best.
    Despite being a doting paean to him, it was made well and extremely entertaining. It even washed out the taste of Tiger King form our mouths.
    That and how much he missed his Dad....

    On Netflix I recommend: "Unorthodox." It's about a woman who escapes from a very Orthodox Jewish community. I do not recommend "Reckoning." Another serial killer series that follows the usual mythology. On Acorn I recommend "Gold Digger" if just for the fact that it's a British series about an older woman and a much younger man. Is he or isn't he? It explores a dysfunctional family and it's secrets.

    Was intrigued to find out that the actor who plays my favorite character (the lawyer), Janet McTeer, is a 2-time Oscar nominee for best actress. (I never saw either of them)
    And a Brit!
