Ya know, I almost never watched this.
To be honest, I thought Breaking Bad was perfect, so why risk tarnishing one's record with an unnecessary swing at bat?
Better to just finish strong and quit while one's ahead, right?
Well, eventually all the ads and social buzz for Your Honor became too much to bear, so that—plus my architectural interest in the Garden District in New Orleans (where Cranston's character lives)—nudged me into the space where I was mentally ready and emotionally eager to see what this latest show was all about.
Mind you, I'd procrastinated for three whole years before giving it a go, but boy, am I glad I pounced!
It literally became one of my top two or three favorite series for all of 2023.
It is so, so good.
It's also super tense, which is a turnoff for Dawn, so I had to watch it alone, but she would attest that—even as a bystander who only periodically drifts through the room while something's on—it's a remarkable show.
The judge gets himself into a world of hurt, makes lots of deals with many devils, and just when you think it can't get any worse for the poor guy, his hurts double, triple, quadruple.
By the time I'd binged every show in every season, all my fingernails were gone.
If you're on fence about it, hop on over to the judge's side and see what all the commotion's about.
You'll be glad you did. In the words of the late, great "Cookin' Cajun" himself, Justin Wilson, "I gar-on-tee!"
