Year-in-review: Twitter

 'Tis the time of year when various social media platforms do a  year-in-review, or have different plug-ins that give you some stats anyway.  I'll start with Twitter's festive Christmas tree version of who I've (apparently) interacted with over the month of December.  I don't recognize some of these profile pics🤔

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

Splinter Cell Remake in the works!

 OK, this made me more giddy than I thought I would be :-)I love the Splinter Cell Universe and I hope that this proves to be a successful remake.  I wouldn't mind a television version of Splinter Cell, exploring the various video games and novels that have come out over the years :-) I remember playing this originally on my PowerBook G4 (bought the boxed copy of the game at the local Apple

Star Trek Resurgence

 Here's another game trailer that came out of nowhere, but I am glad to be getting a Star Trek game that's not tied to an upcoming movie.  I didn't get a chance to play the Star Trek 2009 movie-companion game, but from the demos it didn't feel treky.

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

Review: Leonard McCoy, Frontier Doctor

Leonard McCoy, Frontier Doctor by John Byrne My rating: 4 of 5 stars I enjoyed this more than I thought I would :-)  Basically, it's Dr. McCoy's adventures in the year that the Enterprise gets a refit between the end of the series and the motion picture. There were some interesting connectors here and there, but true to the original series it's much more episodic
