  • About halfway through the final season of Homeland. Oh, Carrie Mathison what in the hell are you thinking now?

    • Just finished the S2 premiere of THE MANDALORIAN.

      Cliche to say, but I think that Jon Favreau and company didn't miss a beat and continued the winning streak with this. Once again you are presented with a format/template right out of a 1950s/60's Western but it works. This episode also showed that Disney isn't playing around with the VFX budget. The episode used a VFX concept that probably wouldn't turn out with a normal TV budget. Without that backing, I feel that the story used could have very easily fallen flat (or at least lead to some very detrimental discussions regarding VFX that would have dragged the actual storytelling components down with it).

      I'll come back with some spoiler stuff later on in the weekend because obviously most of y'all have lives and can't watch an episode every Friday at 7am or 8am ^_____^

      • Mandalorian s2 ep1 was fine. But didnt really advance the story much. Entertaining as a standalone.

          The Queen’s Gambit was outstanding.

            Ep 2 is great too. It's a keeper. Either the lead is a very good actress or the director is a magician.

                surpised to see such an intellectual looking show tending so high in Netflix top ten- often it looks like hot garbage on their top ten list

                • Been watching Ted Lasso. Enjoying it a lot.

                  • I've been watching The Right Stuff on Disney+. It's a little more Mad Men than I was expecting*, but its all stuff I read (or was hinted at) about the original Mercury 7 astronauts, and it's been a fun series to see how the Mercury 7 were.

                    It does make me want to go back and watch the film too. It's been almost 30+ years since I saw it, and I didn't quite pick up on everything (other than at my young age it felt every bit of the three+ hours it was).

                    Disney sure has some home runs on their Disney+ service.



                    * I never watched the full series, just bits of episodes here and there. That's one series in my queue though.

                      Me too. Looks very interesting.

                          Yeah, it was amazing.

                          I finished Homeland last night. I give them a lot of credit in the end. It was an interesting character study. I actually thought they stuck the landing.
