Tulsa King

I've been hearing good things about Tulsa King with Sylvester Stallone on Paramount+ so I gave it a try this afternoon. I actually liked and was ready to binge watch it since it's a long weekend (off for Thanksgiving and day after here in the US). Watched episode 1, let episode 2 finish, and then.... nothing. Ah, dang it! I forgot that Paramount+ doesn't release the whole season like Netflix does, I'll have to come back next week again to watch episode 3 like a caveman watching weekly TV shows as they air. 😁

Something that surprised me is that Stallone is playing a character who is his actual age. At the time of the show filming that would've been 75 and that's how old his character is. He's a spry senior.

For those that like curiosities, check out the "Center of the Universe" in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Apparently it is a spot in a public square where if you stand in the middle any sound you make is echoed back to you and anybody outside of the spot just hears a muffled sound.
I was really expecting the S1 finale to be a bit more action packed. The finale resolved the S1 main antagonist story line but it was a bit all... expected? 🤔 Even with the slight time-jump I was really expecting more story to be packed into the finale. If there is a S2 my guess is that it'll be focused on the battle between the Tulsa crew and Chickie's NY crew. Hopefully there is a S2, I haven't heard anything yet.
