I just watched Kung Fury on a lark. It's silly but hilarious especially is you remember the late 80s/early 90s. It's only 30 minutes and on both Netflix and YouTube. Great for some light entertainment and a lot of cheap laughs.

History Channel series.  For a builder sort of individual with an interest in history like me or any of the rest of you who are, this series is utter gold.

Just finished the third season of AMC's "Turn: Washington's Spies" on Netflix. Excellent show, the actors are what really do it for me!

Finished watching Netflix's Death Note live-action movie earlier today, and now I'm onto The Tick (2017).

I'm hoping to get xxxHolic soon. Definitely one of my favorites, even though I'm not usually into that kind of stuff. We have a bad connection, so I'd rather buy the dvds than stream.

Last night I watched the movie "My Cousin Rachel." It's a "Mystery/romance" but it should be more like a romance/thriller because it is all kinds of screwed up. This guy in England inherits this sweet estate but just before the death of his cousin, he receives a letter saying how he's being poisoned by his wife.... So the main character travels to the estate to confront his dead cousin's wife and just like an idiot, ends up falling in love with her. All kinds of screwed up things happen between them in this romance/struggle for power. The unresolved ending either makes it the best or the worst kind of movie.

Latest episode of Rick & Morty was dense as fuck. Felt like a full length movie in 22-minutes.

I've been really enjoying Last Kingdom since season 2 picked up, though I admit it's best to start with season 1 even though its acting and writing were rough and unpolished then. It's on Netflix.

Pros: Unmagical, but accurately superstitious historical setting (Early middle age England, the Reign of King Alfred as he struggled to defend against the Vikings). The constant backstabbing and twists of loyalties, particularly among the Danes (#teamvikings) get better and deeper as the plotline evolves.

Cons:  The over-emphasis on Alfred in Season 1 was really tiring. In contrast, in Season 2 Alfred is far more in the background, getting a more balanced amount of screen time.  Also, the main character in season 1 has both a rusty actor who bombs some of his lines by hamming it up and some way-too-stupid deus ex machina moments. By season 2 the actor has gotten the role down and his challenges become more interesting and well thought out.

Definitely recommend for Game of Thrones fans; it has been called the BBC's attempts to cash in on the GoT craze. Season 1 really was so rough around the edges that I agreed with the assessment but watched it all anyway. Now I've started to get into it.

American Horror Story season 6 (Roanoke) is finally better. 4 was boring and 5 not even remotely watchable... just a string of pictures, really. And Lady Gaga.

The Orville

I enjoy this. Really captures the look of older Star Trek. Is funny but also hits dramatic notes. Reminds me of Brookly 99 in that everyone seems competent at their jobs. But its less sitcom show and more.... Spoofy? Not amazing, but its definitly better than Season 1 of TNG. (Come at me trekkies)

It's like a post-reality TV Star Trek with a dose of tongue in cheek. Worth watching.

I am very disappointed that The Tick (on Amazon) hasn't been mentioned here.  It's FANTASTIC comedy.  I liked it so much that I've already watched the first half-season twice.

The Orville has pleasantly surprised me by defying classification.  It's neither a spoof nor a comedy.  It's behaving mostly like a legitimate science fiction show (albeit blatantly store-brand Star Trek), just with comedic leads.

I watched the first episode of The Tick and thought it was just ok. Might go back to it.
