There is a show on HBO Max called industry Season two just ended, which I absolutely love. I think it’s cool, and I think one of the things that I enjoy a lot is showing young people early in their careers kind of going on a journey and all that comes with that.

But it’s set in the finance industry, and I, and I certainly not a finance bro, really enjoy watching the high-density finance scenes where lines like this are said: “How much Rycan is available in the market? No idea. We’re going to have to check the flow.” free. its source. buy it. You don’t need a price. “

And I’m sitting on my couch like, “Nah, the back end is going to be killer. You want to stop as soon as possible,” I know what I’m talking about. It’s really exciting. Ronald Young, Jr.

Well, he was sleeping comfortably before I hit play, but it seemed to work beautifully for him.

Here’s one of the singles, 27 minutes into “A Brief”.

The Great British Bread Show


I am always amazed at how happy I am when The Great British Bread Show Returns to Netflix. Did he love her as much as I loved when she was Mary Berry and ran the BBC? no. Do you love Matt Lucas as host? no. Am I totally happy with all the changes they’ve made? number.

However, I am always very happy when he comes back, and as soon as I see people in that tent baking stuff – struggling, hot people, old people, lovely people with a great sense of humor – they make all kinds of different food. I am always so excited to see her.
