A comment on two crowded fields

A quick note on the abundance of good TV and its consequences: recent review that I read, quite negative, about Season one of the Netflix comedy BoJack Horseman. 

The problem: Reviewer was almost too eager, anxious to dismiss new entry in crowded field as just another “Archer knockoff”.  The same way a child gets anxious having to open too many presents on a christmas party, it was palpable that the TV reviewer was anxious with too many TV series to process and digest.

I found BoJack quite funny. The last one third of episodes lose a bit of steam, but the first eight were quite great.

A different story on another crowded field: Man on the Run: Paul McCartney in the 1970s, by Tom Doyle is a very promising book. There are many Beatles books out there, and so it becomes actually easier to compare the skill of the authors in getting the story and making sense of it. Mr Doyle certainly has the skill.
