Watched the Netflix documentary on Jimmy Saville. I have strange interest in minds of psychopaths and the like. Not the best documentary though. I find that Netflix' documentaries often beat about the bush for too long.

I can't sit through History Channel and Discovery "documentaries" any more, 40 minutes of preview, tease and recap and trying to get you excited for the big reveal which is 2-5 min of actual info.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

I wholeheartedly agree. There is more filler than anything else . It feels a bit like watching a cable news loop on a slow news day .

Thank goodness for written material.

If anyone is inclined, you can binge Scrubs on the overnight. I must say it's the least funny show I find myself viewing with any regularity. Oftentimes it's attempts at humor are downright embarrassing. I feel embarrassed.

Well the Discovery channel is lately bent on serving a huge demographic lately, the 1000lb-trans-lesbo community. I'm feeling left out.

Apparently Moon Knight is good?

Wondering this myself. Hopefully won't be any "girl power" or woke checklist involved.

Now watching the cosplay Mills-and-Boon that is Outlander. With the Mrs, naturally. It's a well made show that's entertaining to watch, but it'd be a hard slog if you're not at least a little bit the romantic type. (looks above at Marvel and Battlebots, and assumes there's probably not gonna be a lot of time for that sort of thing, at a place like this!... 🤣 )

I despise all that cosplay machismo that is 'Marvel anything'. Daredevil season 1 was cool, and it all was downhill fast from there, into formulaic corporate spew.

I don't have a problem in the world with girl power, whatever that means in it's context. As long as girl power doesn't translate into kill all the men, just leave a few to propagate girl society. There have been female superheroes forever. Some are damned cool.

Almost agree about Marvel, but the only one I liked was the Toby Maguire Spiderman. As to M&B and similar, lately I've watched House of Gucci (brilliant film especially Gaga), Spencer (pretty much warts and all portrayal, not the Diana-worship I expected...), and almost the first two series of Downton Abbey (at which point it had become less fresh and too soap opera, so doubt I'll watch any more - same as I found The Sopranos after the first two or three seasons).

Been a month and I'm still slogging my way through the rest of GoT.

Season 7 and 8 have been so incredibly dull that I've lost interest in the series and I keep forcing myself to just finish it off. It's not even the fact the seasons are rushed, it's that there is virtually no building to anything (especially a problem in Season 7) resulting in 'payoffs' that are entirely too anti-climatic.

Just finished the Long Night episode and it was one of the more incoherent battles in the entire series. Other than the Night King's use of the winter storm to hinder the dragons, nothing else about it made any sense.

I'm also really disappointed we never got a proper sea battle between Yara and Euron. Their conflict in Season 7 should have entailed an entire Master and Commander-style episode. Instead we get a scene of Yara getting felt up before 5 minutes of annoying shaky-cam sword-fighting. Though I suppose maybe there is still something to come in the final episodes, but given all the hype around the Ironborn and their prowess with ships, it's so disappointing we've never really been shown this.

At any rate, at this pace I might be finished the series by the end of month. 😜

Finished watching season 2 of Star Trek: Picard. Here are two short clips that perfectly sum up my feelings:

Probably should have just continued working through The Expanse for my sci-fi fix. Strange New Worlds seems like a step in the right direction, though (let's just see if it can keep it up).

Some time ago finished all 9 seasons of X-Files. (There are only 9 seasons! Don't even try to tell me anything else!)

Currently I'm at 3rd season of Stargate SG-1. 😎

This show is an absolute trainwreck. I continued watching it just to laugh my ass off.

I guess the writers never even watched a single episode of TNG. A 3 year old could write better stories than that.
Woke Borg really cracked me up, though. I guess now you need to give consent before being assimilated. 🤣

On another note, I got Apple TV+ and watched some of the shows there.
Severance is extremely good! It's about a guy that forgets about his private life when he's at work and vice versa - so essentially, he is living two lifes but can't remember it. It's a funny show with great humour and they really get everything out of this situation.

Also watched Foundation - this feels like an epic SciFi movie that runs for 10 hours straight. I still hate Apple for their shitty devices, but I love them for what they did to Science Fiction.

I'll takr a moment to mention that I saw Braveheart for the first time scant months ago. Imho it was a poc. This doesn't have anything to do with it, but I sometimes almost like Mel Gibson, the rest of the time I regard him as pond scum. The Patriot appeared to be a better movie, I've seen perhaps 75% of it. The medieval period is far more to my liking. But alas BH was a huge dissapointment.

'The Office' complete series. I never watched it before, perhaps bits and pieces here and there. Man is this show funny, and relatable to my former days in an office.

I watched the 1st 5 seasons of the Office.recently. I saw the 1st 2 seasons or mostly when it was current. There are hilarious parts, but I have to admit I felt disappointed, especially on account of it's reputation. Parks and Recreation, the funny episodes, is better imo. I only started watching it about a year and a half ago. There are dry shows, the first season and probably a good deal of the 2nd is kind of bleh. It picks up though.

People should check out Communirty. I swore I'd never watch it, but the night I decided to give it a chance they aired the 2 funniest episodes. I cannot recall an instance where a sitcom had me choking and tearing. A good deal of it is kind of dry, but tbere's enough there that I bought tbe whole series. It's the most innovative comedy out there. Very enjoyable for me. #six seasons and a movie.
