Out of the Blue

It's a positive trend that more good television shows realize they shouldn't overstay their welcomes. But even while appreciating that, it's hard to accept there will be no Succession or Barry tonight. I don't know if we'll click with what's replacing them tonight, but I see that HBO is returning a new season of The Righteous Gemstones in a couple of weeks, which is welcome news. I wasn't sure there would be any more of that show with John Goodman also being committed to The Connors. That dude has enormous energy for a septuagenarian who has never exactly been a fitness freak.
