TV - Lost in Space

 Danger Will Robinson!Here's another Netflix remake, and this one is quite good (compared to both the original and the motion picture of the late 90s).  The story (predictably, for anyone who had a vague recollection of the original) follows the Robinsons who are...lost in space.  They are part of a colonization project, and I guess people are leaving earth because we've 🤬it up...again

TV - Another Life (Season 2)

This one is a Netflix original where humans make first contact! Or, rather, someone makes first contact with us (the Achaia). After they land a ship (or probe) on our planet (which looks like a quicksilver infinity sign) and we set out into the cosmos to meet them. I guess we want to welcome them to the neighborhood?Anyway, we send The Salvare to make first contact, only to find out that the civilization

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 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

TV Binge - Part V

 So much time to catch up on TV watching over the summer while there really isn't all that much new stuff on TV 😂. OK, here's some recap of stuff from August... (yeah, I know I am behind...)Van Helsing (Season 5)I wasn't really sure how this series was going to end.  It did feel like they were grasping at straws close to the end of season 4 and the start of this season.  Over the

TV Binging - Part IV

 Well...the coronavirus keeps going...so keeps the backlog of TV watching....Superman and LoisI finished season 1 of the CW's new DC show most recently and I was pretty surprised that it was better than I thought it would be.  I never watched Smallville back in the day, and in general the big name superhero shows don't attract me these days.  The premise of the show, at least from the

TV Binge (Part III)

With the late start of current seasons due to COVID, it's more past show binging (and also finishing off stuff I had started).  I started to write this back in March, but I am just getting to jotting down some thoughts.SupernaturalTo be honest, I wasn't really sure how this whole series was going to end. A series that basically billed itself as going out and hunting the monster of the week almost

TV Binging and Series Finales (part II)

The other post was getting a bit long, so I am continuing it here (who knows, there may even be a part III!)Marvel's Agents of SHIELDI rather liked this series. It follows a group of SHIELD agents who are protecting the earth from whatever big bad happens to exist. All events take place after the first Avengers movie, so the big bad that kicked it off was HYDRA, and Agent Coulson was brought back from

TV Binging and Season Finales (part I)

Well, the one thing about this COVID-19 crisis hitting in the summer is that we have a lot of television to catch up on. This year is also the year of many final seasons of television shows.  I don't know if this was planned, or it was a good opportunity with the on-going pandemic.  I suspect a little bit of both (depending on the show).  Here are some quick thoughts on some recent finales
