    Sherlock Series 4. The Six Thatchers. Overall it was decent episode, but I’m glad that they wrote Mary out of the show. I found the Watson’s wife=super spy thing to be kind of a stretch.

    Finished Gunpowder. A just cause combined with utter hopelessness and a liberal dose of cruel and unusual punishment. Sort of the Nate Parker's The Birth of a Nation of 2017 but with less scandal.

    The final episode of Season 2 of Stranger Things.

    Well....I guess it was okay. The first season was better of course, but this season had Kai Greene in it...although not enough.

    Hollywood Couples: Charles Bronson and Jill Ireland. Fun to see a lot of those trailers intermingling with personal details, I immediately forgot one or two movies I wanted to see as a result of the trailers, but this was interesting.

    The Goldbergs. It was okay but nothing like last week since which seem like they took a lot of it from watching my family eat out.

    M.A.S.K. S1, Ep. 8 "The Roteks" (1985) - Plot; V.E.N.O.M. unleashes a swarm of enhanced, metal-eating bugs.

    M.A.S.K. is notable in Star Wars circles because it's the star Kenner Toys hitched its wagon to when the Star Wars express began to run out of steam. Kind of a hybrid of G.I. Joe and Transformers, it became my own last hurrah with toys (at least until I got older and realized being a grownup was overrated). The toy line itself is excellent. The cartoon... yeah, about that.

    The plots tend to involve V.E.N.O.M. (Or Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem, the on the nose acronym for the bad guys) stealing something and the good guys of M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand... yeah, with a K) stopping them. This episode is no different. This time V.E.N.O.M. steals enhanced insects that can eat metal, and M.A.S.K. has to stop them before they devour everything. The writing is pretty bland, w/o much of the subtle wit that informs, say G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. It also lacks the latter's voice talent, with the performances here about as flat as an ironing board.

    It is fun when uber square, milquetoast leader Matt Trakker puts out the call to assemble his team, who all have day jobs (bad guy bustin' must not pay very well). Watching them drop their tasks to respond is always worth a chuckle. And one can't talk about M.A.S.K. w/o talking about its theme song. The 80s was Golden Age of cartoon themes, and there were few, if any, better than M.A.S.K. - 5.5/10

    If you call it a TV show, we watch The Amazing Race last night on the DVR. It’s the one reality show I watch (unless you are like me and call the Trump administration a reality TV show) since it’s a true competition and actually there is some good geography stuff in there. When I used to teach geography in summer school, I sometimes showed clips of it.

    I finally started this show called Stranger Things. I think I am on episode 6 or 7 of the first season. I haven't watched it for a few days. It is okay so far.

    Is the casual, seemingly unawares understatement intentional, dear reader?

    A refresher rewatching of Gamorrah s02 e12.

    But dilemma time... I've just noticed Altered Carbon is now available on Netflix. Do I crack on with Gomorrah season three, or get me some James Purefoy?

    Three episodes in of Altered Carbon and I'm finally ready to admit to myself that despite all the money on the screen, it's pants.

    The final two episodes of Star Wars Rebels season 3.

    Wow wee! What a finale. The visuals have been absolutely stunning this season. Bendu is awesome and Thrawn is a bloody good villain. Now to catch up with season 4...

    Battlestar Galactica S1, Ep. 18 "Baltar's Escape" (1979) - Plot; With his powers stripped by a newly assertive Council of Twelve, Commander Adama and the Galactica are vulnerable to the scheming of their dangerous prisoner Baltar.

    After more than a year away, I return to my re-watch of a show that's taken longer than the show itself lasted. In need of some comfort food, the mess hall on the Galactica had just what I needed on its menu.

    The original BSG will never be associated with "big ideas", but to simply dismiss it as empty headed junk food sci-fi isn't exactly fair. This episode sees the Colonial Council of Twelve move to take the Galactica and its ragtag fleet--which has been under martial law since their colonies were destroyed by the Cylons--off of a war footing. What initially seems like a simple, plot serving clash between the Council's naïve peacenik mindset and the hard won pessimistic wisdom of Adama and his crew sees the latter thoughtfully consider the Council's arguments and do his best to comply. For their part, the Council--particularly the episode's chief bureaucratic foil--show a steely resolve and a willingness to act when all other avenues close. Is it heady stuff? No, not really. But it's a bit weightier than its "Pew! Pew! Pew!" reputation. - 7/10
