The Boys, Loki, See, What If?, Ted Lasso, Robot Chicken, The Mandalorian, Luca, Discovery, Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Foundation is on the short list, but I've read it strays from the source material pretty quickly. Waiting for Black Widow to drop to normal streaming prices.

My 3 year old LED tv is developing purple blotches around the edges, so I think an OLED replacement is nigh, once the chip shortage eases and prices come back down.

I'm halfway through the second season of The Terror.

Supernatural, semihistorical, horror anthology series, where each season is inspired by a different infamous or mysterious real life historical tragedy.

I see for the second time the whole Taken series, by Steven Spielberg.
Right now I am viewing one of the films from my collection of old science fiction films (also B-movies) from the 50s and 60s.
I would like to buy the entire Stargate SG1 DVD series

The 6th and final season of Lucifer has been out for a bit now, and I've watched it twice. I'm still torn between feeling like they did a great job overall, and being really bummed that it's over. It topped Netflix's viewing charts worldwide for a while.

Watched a few documentaries over the weekend.

The Way Down: God, Greed, And The Cult Of Gwen Shamblin
This one's about the Remnant Fellowship Church in Tennessee. It's a 5-part series, but only the first three episodes have been released. The last two are listed as being released on 2022, and the third episode ends with the line "To Be Continued." It's a very current topic, as the most recent event in it was in May of this year.

Toe Tag Parole: To Live and Die on Yard A
Very interesting movie about California's "Progressive Programming Facility". I always find it interesting that many/most inmates always recount their crimes as "I was convicted of doing X" or "They claim I did Y". Very few of them freely admit to the crime(s) they are incarcerated for. Even when there is video evidence of it, and they agree that there's video of them doing it.

The Vow
This is a 9-part series about the NXIVM sex cult. Very well done. After watching it, I turned to my wife and said, "Scientologists watch this and say, 'there, but for the grace of Xenu, go I.'"

Mrs. Stickyfrog are in season 1 of "Hand of God." The jury is still out for us. It is interesting and disturbing at the same time. Ron Pearlman is convincing as a delusional father of a son who attempted suicide but is now in a vegetative state.

Just finished this, was excellent. Thanks.

Goliath. Just about done with Season 4.

Bull. As much as I dislike the premise, this is one of my faves.

The problem with Jon Stewart. Good, not great.

Survivor SA. Now that the US is doing woke survivor, it's more like Survivor should be.

Ghosts US. American remake of UK show. Better.

Apex. Bruce Willis is being hunted by rich people on an island for sport. No mobility scooter, so he should be easy to catch. Wrong. Spoiler alert- he goes on to make more bad movies.

Frayed. I'm not sure why, but Diane Morgan pretending to be Australian does it for me. There are other people in the cast but I'm not sure who they are or what the show is about. It might be a comedy.

On The Buses. Comedy, UK. 1971.
How the times have changed. I'm not sure what it was about this movie that made it a franchise, but there are at least two sequels.

Coldplay Live from Climate Pledge Arena. 2021 Live performance of their first album in 5 years. My ears have suffered tremendously since Christi found the Outlaw Country channel on sirius and then figured out how to search for more country music channels, and I learned, knows the lyrics to an abnormally high number of jug band songs. Coldplay and a set of noise canceling headphones provide a very welcome respite.

Finders Keepers 2015 Documentary

Shannon Whisnant found an amputated human foot in a barbecue smoker he'd purchased from a storage locker in Maiden, North Carolina.

And it just takes off from there.

Sounds to me like pain and gain. You should watch that next!

Probably one of the most hilarious and tragic movies I've ever seen. The rock and Mark Wahlberg are amazing in it.

I saw Pain and Gain when it came out. That and Be Cool really sold me on Dwayne Johnson as an actor. Finders Keepers is more like The Whites of West Virginia. It's hard to believe it's not another Spinal Tap.
If you're wondering where we're going or how we got here now, keep in mind that people who move to New York and propagate, create little New Yorkers. A large number of our species have moved to the South and reproduced, creating a whole new crop of publicly educated Southerners. Everybody's heard of at least one family that moved from Connecticut to Texas and had a dumb kid or two. Finders Keepers is a cautionary tale, on so many levels. It is a brilliantly crafted film. The American phenomenon called "shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations," is ever-present, even though the driving theme seems to veer from Andy Warhol's 15 minutes to Dire Straits' MTV. This film is a profoundly disturbing, albeit extremely funny, indictment of media culture.

Watching the first episode of this:

Evokes both pleasure and pain. It is sad to see how dysfunctional and angry they were with each other as evidenced by large amount of passive aggressive actions that play out. The band is clearly close to breaking up here.

On the flip, it is breathtaking to watch the music flow out of Paul. Just stunning.

Can't wait until the next two segments are available.

Last night, I saw Ascension, a 2021 documentary about China. It was very interesting to see how things get made and how workers live.

Here is the IMDB pitch for the movie:

The absorbingly cinematic Ascension explores the pursuit of the "Chinese Dream." This observational documentary presents a contemporary vision of China that prioritizes productivity and innovation above all.

My sister, who is better with quips than I am, moved to that part of North Carolina many years ago. She described it as mayonnaise and polyester country, and said everyone aspired to one day brick over their double wide (covering your doublewide mobile home with bricks, allegedly makes the tornadoes work a little harder to get your house.)

I've been watching a lot of Bar Rescue on Paramount+.

The first few seasons (1-3 & the first half of 4) seemed fairly legit, with regards to being actual bars in need of help, with very little staged drama, etc., for the cameras.

Part way through Season 4 it seemed more obviously contrived. Third party reviews of the episodes seem to back that up.

I'm still watching it, because it is somewhat entertaining, and I can read/play games on my iPad while it's on and not miss anything.
