Beforeigners

 A portmanteau of "before" and "foreigners" (if that wasn't obvious).  I subbed to HBO Max to watch the new Matrix movie and I stuck around to see what else existed that I didn't know about.  I guess that's how they get you! There are spoilers, so stop reading now if you don't want things spoiled...Beforeigners is a Norwegian production that follows Lars and Alfhildr, two cops in

TV - Star Wars Visions

Star Wars: VisionsI recently watched Star Wars visions, which is an animated anthology series that takes place in the Star Wars universe. The stories use different styles of anime, and the visual aesthetics (at least in some of the stories) really reminded me of Japanese Samurai stories in told in anime format and story. It is really appropriate given the origin stories of the original Star Wars.I

TV - Dexter New Blood

 We recently finished the relaunch(?) of the series Dexter, titled New Blood (works on a variety of levels, I guess). When the original series ended, Dexter was last seen logging in Alaska. That ending wasn't really all that satisfactory. Not that I wanted to see Dexter dead, but it didn't really fit the character.  Now, years later, we see Dexter in upstate New York (without much explanation

TV - Titans (Season 3)

This season sees the team go to Gotham! We get to see old favorites, like Barbara Gordon (now police commissioner) and Old Man Wayne, who is still haunted by his past. Interestingly enough the joker is still around! I would have expected people who are dumped in a vat of chemicals to not get that old, but whatever.  The Joker lures Jason (the new Robin) into a trap and kills him (oh yeah,

Year-in-review: TV Time

It seems like the 2021 trend in social media year-in-review stats was various cards that you scroll through on your tablet or phone. This one is from the app TV Time that I use to mark my TV viewing.  I suspect that the numbers are off since I marked some TV series as watched just to get them off my pending list (things like Diners, Driven-ins and Dives that seem to be going to revisit old spots

Halo Television Series

 Another adaptation I can't wait for :-) I wonder if they'll dive into the books as a source for information or if they'll do their own thing. I am a bit behind on all of the Halo books...I haven't read one since 2014...Maybe in 2022 I'll rectify that ;-)

TV Recap - 2021 Miscellaneous (Part II)

Some more TV watching... or rather thoughts on TV shows that I caught up on over the past year 📺Brooklyn 99Brooklyn 99 wrapped up this year. It was one of our favorite comedies, but given everything that's been happening in the US the producer's decision to wrap it up made sense.  This final season addresses stuff that happened in the real world, which sees Rosa quit and become a PI, Hitchcock

TV Recap - Miscellaneous (Part I)

Man, with this pandemic, I've watched more new TV than in previous years... I think the only time I watched as much TV was when I had TV shows on my iPod Touch back in the day... Here are some miscellaneous items from this past year: Star Wars: Bad BatchI tried watching The Clone Wars before (seemed like something I should watch), but I never really got into it.  The animation style just

TV Recap of series finales

 Well, it's no longer a binge, so I decided to retitle these posts going forward to TV recaps :-) Here's what was watched in November:SupergirlThis show wrapped up in November 2021 with its sixth, and final, season. The show kicked off on CBS, which was a bit weird given that the rest of the DC superhero show universe was on the CW, but after one season of mediocre ratings on CBS (from what I

TV Binge - Part VI

Not necessarily in the order that I watched these, but here are some thoughts on recent TV shows on IMDBtv, Netflix, and ANT1Leverage: RedemptionI was surprised to see this series rebooted under the IMDBtv brand, but I was also delighted to see it back. The original ran for five seasons, and it was a story of sticking up for the little guy.  This second series is that, and it's also about the
