  1. * Orange is the New Black: Final Season is done.

    * Hobbes & Shaw - Ouch, there's a lot to like in the first hour or so, but that last hour or so draaaaaags.

    Don't remember if I mentioned Dead to Me last month, but the wife and I checked it out, based off the hyperventilating praise it got from a couple of her friends. I...dunno. I see that Christina Applegate got nominated for an Emmy, which is maybe stretching it (particularly since Linda Cardellini did NOT get nominated), but the two leads are pretty decent. The rest of everything is kind of a mess. Lots of cliffhangers, very little attempt to sell those cliffhangers as anything beyond a reason to not press "stop" when Netflix starts to autoplay the next episode.

  2. Into Season 5 of Glee. It's still fairly entertaining, up and down. Just finished the episode memorializing Cory Monteith.

    Started watching Big Mouth. Good assembly of voice actors. Most of the jokes land, a few per episode of the LOL variety.

  3. Legion bowed out with its season 3 finale. I thought the use of Pink Floyd's "Mother" was perfect in context.

    Alita: Battle Angel was a pretty tame movie -- not bad, esp. checked out from the library. It's James Cameron, so don't expect nuance, but the scenery/CGI is cool, and it is true to its source material.

      1. To be faaaaaaahhrr, season 6 was released in 2018 so I don't think they have much eligible. I expect them to sweep the awards next year.

  4. We've been starting "Lucifer" on Netflix. It's fun lazy viewing.

    I just got Endgame at Redbox. I'm working on editing Infinity War, Endgame and various other scenes from around the MCU together into a combined movie. Gonna come in at around 6 hours or so. I haven't gotten a name for it yet. It's working title is "The Snap", but I've also considered "Thanos" and "The Thanos Chronicles". Anyone else got suggestions?

      1. How about The Stoned Age? I don't believe there are any other movies out there that were just beyond god-awful terrible with that name.

  5. I'm enjoying the new season of Veronica Mars, but I didn't rewatch the originals, so it's a little tough to remember who some of the minor characters are. Like Leo. It took about half an episode for me to place him.

  6. Anyone besides Algonad see Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood? Reactions to that ending?

    Saw First Man. It was ok. The Lunar landing scenes were pretty cool.

  7. Two bits of Tinseltown news (yes, I just used that moniker):
    -Sony won't share Spider-Man with Marvel anymore. Or, at least until the right palms are greased.
    -New Matrix coming with half of the creators and Neo and Trinity.

  8. The big watches this last month for me were Jessica Jones Season 3, and The Boys. Both were very good. Jessica Jones was way better than season 2. The Boys was more or less a Watchmen ripoff, but done well, and there's enough intrigue to keep us going. I hope they keep moving forward with the story, and don't decide to get more seasons out of it, or whatever... the plot was really the key here, since the characters themselves are at times overly familiar.

    Having now watched all of the Marvel Netflix shows, except for The Punisher, because that whole character is just the worst, I think I'd rank them thusly:

    Daredevil Season 3
    Jessica Jones Season 1
    Daredevil Season 1
    Luke Cage Season 1 (this would easily be higher if the second half of the season were better)
    Luke Cage Season 2
    Jessica Jones Season 3
    Daredevil Season 2
    The Defenders
    Iron Fist Season 2
    Jessica Jones Season 2
    Iron Fist Season 1

    It is a real shame Luke Cage won't be getting a third season. That storyline just isn't complete.
