Mare of Easttown was a big hit for HBO, with three million people watching the finale within the first 24 hours.

It's been months since the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol that left 5 dead and 140 police officers injured. Last week, a bill to establish a commission tasked with investigating barely passed the House, and may not pass the Senate.

This week we discuss why calls for further investigations are being ignored and the impediments to bringing those involved to justice. We also share our thoughts on Zak Snyder's 'Army of the Dead' (Netflix) and the new Angelina Jolie movie, 'Those Who Wish Me Dead' (HBO Max).

Before that, we share our thoughts on 'Tenet' which is now streaming on HBO MAX and 'The Mitchells vs. the Machines.'
