The Magnificent Ruffians
CBS Evening News
About to knock out the final episode of Stranger Things: Season 3. Solid season so far, hoping they end strong.
A Missed Apex podcast, on Youtube.
Continued, eg. tenth episode doing it, interview with Matthew Carter, former team principal of the Lotus Formula One team, before Renault took it back over.
Have fun! It's an excellent third season to a terrific series.
I'm about to watch Part 3 of Chasing The Moon on American Experience.
In the Kitchen with David
The Deadly Breaking Sword
Hollywood Game Night
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Oh snap! New department on Live PD(I was hoping for this during 2week break) gonna be in Lafayette, Louisiana which is about 65 miles east of me and their opening is during a tropical storm/hurricane!!
Punisher, season 1 and 2.
Finally got around to watching these. Wow. The first season was so...just so many feels. It was fantastic all around, though I didn't much care for that Louis kid's plot. I mean, i liked how to season covered so many different aspects of war and its ramifications on people and politics.
It was a very intelligently written season imo. And I found myself eager for the violence of the final confrontation, for the making of Jigsaw.
Season 2, however, was a "flustercuck" of highs and lows. It was kind of all over and abandoned a cohesive, cunning story for gratuitous violence. The Jigsaw stuff was all well done. I'm not sure what to make of the blackmail plotline, but Ben Barnes delivered an outstanding performance imo.
Curtis once again gets pummeled for being an idiot in his fights. I did miss David, though. I think he and Frank had some good back and forth in season 1.
I guess I was also hoping for a bit more one on one closure between Frank and Jigsaw (the latter's character kept begging for it--but it seemed like the writers forgot about that thread in the mess of all the other plots).
Doctor Dumont's odd approach to therapy wasn't expected at all. I've taken advantage of provided therapy sessions before, but never did they get sensual.
Props to Agent Madani as well. For a supporting character, she was very well written throughout both seasons, her arc always compelling and heartfelt. Great performance there as well.
And Frank. There just isn't a better fit actor for this role. Intense performance throughout. The Punisher really should invest in Batman or Daredevil style armor though. The guy spends most of season 2 covered in his own blood. Like jeez, even some basic sparring armor would have helped a bit. How is his entire body not just one internal hemorrhage?
The world will never know...
Watching the Five Poison Palm parts of Clan Feuds again. Okay, so maybe he was in the movie for 7 minutes? I don’t know, but he’s so much fun. The exact type of on point bonkers Gu Long assassin that makes these movies an utter delight.
I'm watching the 3 part series Chasing the Moon about the US Space Program from 1961 to 1972. The series is available on PBS streaming or On Demand Cable.
Finally finishing S1. It's been great to check in with this series again.
Fringe season 1. It's basically The X-Files, and that's not a bad thing. I enjoy it a lot so far.
MLB Quick Pitch.
How the Universe Works, just love these graphics.
Red Letter Media's Best of the Worst. So good!
Switched over from Wimbledon once the Womens Final ended - now on Tour de France.
Agree but they need to make new episodes with new info. Love them.
Which turned out to be an awesome stage.
Yeah - pretty good.
Indy marathon. Temple of Doom on which always had great cinematography, and looks amazoids on my tv.
Shazam! for the first time. This is awesome!
