I was pleasantry surprised by that one as well. Have probably seen it 3-4 times now thanks to the kids. They’ve both decided to start blurting our “Samantha” at random times.

Saw cage’s version of “color out of space” last night. Excellent B movie.

Just got done with Better Call Saul, I want to say season 4.  Very good.  Very different than Breaking Bad.  Though worth watching.

Just started Season 2 of Altered Carbon.  If you have not seen the first season do yourself a favor and dig in.

Season 5 of Better Call Saul is airing on AMC now.  I really like that show.  Haven't watched any of season 5 yet though.

finished season 4 of the expanse a few days after it was released. thumbs up. wish it wasn't so long between seasons.

currently watching Star Trek Picard. released weekly so is lasting longer. it's gotten criticism for "not being star trek" and for being too slow, but i'm enjoying it quite a bit. be prepared for a lot of character development and a slow build.

just started Devs, written/directed by alex garland. if you liked ex machina or annihilation (two of the best science fiction films of recent years, if you haven't seen them), you shouldn't miss this. 3 episodes in, hooked.

i will get back to altered carbon at some point. i got about half way through season one some time last year and then got sidetracked. it's on my list, tho.

Finished Altered Carbon.  Not as good as the first season but still enjoyable.

Finished The Mandalorian.  Enjoyable but meh acting and writing. 

Netflix's Dracula.  I have only seen the first episode and it was really good.  Dark and gruesome.  Dracula is evil.  Which is as it should be.  Done by the people who did Sherlock, which is another show I really liked.

Finished watching Dracula and it was very good as a whole.  Episode 1 > 2 >> 3.  That said all very enjoyable.

  Episode 1 > 2 >> 3. 

this seems like a common pattern for Moffat. starts strong and then goes off the rails (sherlock, dr who). watched/liked ep 1 of dracula.

also finished season 3 of ozark. thumbs up.

I still liked all the episodes of Dracula.  Sherlock is a favorite but the first season was best.  Dr. Who? Never heard of it.

Finished watching Tiger King.  What a shit show that was.  Depressing statement on humanity.

Watching The Office for the first time.  Overall good, but I don't enjoy all the cringe worthy moments, of which each episodes have at least a couple.  It is full of fremdschämen.

Watching Lost in Space, which I find to only a bit enjoyable.  Almost done with the second season.  It is something to have on while working on a puzzle.

Dr who is a bit of an acquired taste. From a distance you look at it and think wait what?

The current 2 seasons have a shit writer. And millions have dropped the show during the season.

I have physically fallen asleep during this season. Even the final.

If you were to start, I’d suggest the ones from 2005 with Christopher eccleston. The show has different actors playing exactly the same character over time. But each has different personality quirks.

Finished Lost in Space.  It is ok.  I don't regret watching it but I am glad it is finished.  One more season to come some time next year.

Watching Ozark.  I find this show stressful to watch.  It is pretty good so far, I'm in the latest season.

Castlevania.  Anime, I guess that is what you would call it, based on the game of the same name.  In the current season and I have really enjoyed it.  Some very good voice acting.

Also watching The Office, now in the third season.

Honestly, too much time watching shows.

so we've been doing movie nights for the past week or so. one way to deal with kids being bored spending most of their days at home. frozen, frozen2, despicable me, trolls 2, stuff like that.

today the older kid picked out next gen.
pros: kids were heavily invested.
cons: they were bawling their eyes out when the robot loses its memories.

should probably spend more time screening stuff or looking at reviews.
