Its pretty cool how they turned just about every episode into a lesson in some small way. Its quite genius.
Watch the 90's Batman series. Its an intelligent, well-crafted show.

Specifically, Which one is that?

Batman: The Animated Series

Logan was a disappointment. Super duper cliché and predictable with about a bazillion plot holes... I had hoped for something different for once.  >:(

The fight scenes were cool tho.

If you like a good RomCom check out When We First Met on Netflix. Very solid. Funny, wholesome, and not entirely predictable.

Stop what you're doing and watch Altered Carbon.

Echoes of Deux Ex, Firefly and Westworld.
This.  This is like, HBO-quality shit.  I love everything about it.


In other news, I somehow always forget how fucking WEIRD the Winter Olympics are.  Like seriously, every four years people from all over the planet gather to perform some of the most bizarre stunts the human race has come up with.

Luge.  Ok, I get it, it's a giant slide, that seems fun.  What doesn't seem as fun is going down it on a tiny sled while wearing skin-tight suit that leaves your genitals on display for the whole planet.

Figure Skating.  Dancing is a fairly normal human activity, sure.  Doing it with metal blades attached to the bottom of your shoes so you can slide over ice?  Weird.  Also rather subjective scoring for a "sport".

Winter Biathalon.  Normally biathalon or triathalon is some sort of combination race.  Running, swimming, biking, etc.  Winter biathalon is skiing + rifle shooting.  Skiiing itself is a pretty strange activity.  I guess the biathalon simulates hunting in the winter, but it's still a weird combination.  Also, shooting seems to be the only activity in the winter Olympics that doesn't involve ice or snow.

Curling.  A solid contender for weirdest sport on the planet of any season.  The only other sport I know of that involves brooms is freaking Quiddich.  Curling is my very favorite Winter Olympic sport.  After over a decade watching it, though, I still don't understand the rules or strategy AT ALL.  I just like the frantic sweeping and subdued, cryptic excitement of the commentators.

Black Panther was pretty fucking good.

So many powerful women. And that self wig snatch toss was amazing.

I binged Altered Carbon. It was so good. Like a mix of Sherlock Holmes and Cyberpunk/Shadowrun esque style.

Laura, did weird tribal men follow you around at age 15?
If by weird tribal men you mean Christians then yes.

Thanks to everyone who recommended Altered Carbon, awesome stuff.

It seems like many of the best shows are based on books. The Expanse, Altered Carbon, the Handmaid's Tale...

You mean Black Mirror? You seriously didn't watch this until now?  :o

But yeah, the first episode of season 1 is... crass. The other episodes don't follow that pattern, but some (the best ones) are really freaking dark. It's called Black Mirror for a reason  ;)

Black Mirror, yes.  Been hearing good things for a while but just never got to it.  Maybe not the best choice for insomnia TV though.

I only like the uplifting episodes of that show.

It otherwise is so macabre. It makes me fucking cringe.

I adore Black Mirror, but would always recommend new viewers skip the first episode and come back to it later.

It did get a lot more humorous in hindsight though, especially since certain allegations about out erstwhile PM.

Hey, the first episode was what got me hooked as a new viewer... but then again I'm a terrible person.

I loved Black Mirror. The current thing the Hubs put on tonight was Altered Carbon. So far? Pretty enjoyable.
