Just because there’s more good TV than ever, doesn’t mean that it’s easy to find. In fact, because so many new series get cranked out every week, it’s harder to find a good one.

When it comes to new TV shows, I used to rely on the critics at Rotten Tomatoes to steer me in the right direction. Not so much anymore. I haven’t heard of most of these critics, a lot of whom hail from obscure Web sites. Way too many of them are youthful social-justice warriors more interested in diversity than in something like, say, quality.

But you can, of course, rely on my judgment, and I’ve just seen the first two episodes of the second season of Mindhunter (pictured above) on Netflix. So far, it looks even better than its first season, and the first season was superb.

Why don’t we just buy Greenland and give it to Israel? The Israelis can move there, the Palestinians can have Israel, and the Middle East problem will be solved.

Or not.

I’m sure we’ll get to the bottom of the Jeffrey Epstein murder-or-suicide because both Democrats and Republicans want the truth …

… of course, Democrats want the truth only if it implicates Trump, and Republicans want the truth only if it implicates Clinton. And so … we’ll probably never get to the bottom of it.

After all, there are still doubters about the official versions of Kennedy’s assassination, Marilyn Monroe’s death, etc. So why should Epstein be any different?

“We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.”

— Peter Fonda on Twitter last year, a quote that was strangely missing from many of this week’s fawning obituaries about the actor.

It does kind of remind me of the famous World War II poster of Uncle Sam.
