Last night we were checking out TUBI on the new Apple TV and I stumbled across ...


wait for it ...

Season 1 Episode 1 of "Shazam" starring Michael Gray and Les Tremayne.

It was a gripping drama about four young bicyclists out looking for fun. Unfortunately only one of them had enough sense to realize that joyriding was not only illegal, but also dangerous. It's a good thing Captain Marvel was there to rescue them from certain death, although they would now face justice in juvenile court.

I can't believe I used to watch that as a kid. It was truly awful.

I never got into college sports.

Went to a NBA (Mavericks vs Cavaliers) game back in '03, and the guys behind me knew where every player and coach had played in college. It blew my mind.

The last kingdom is awesome. Currently rewatching seasons 1-4 to refresh before watching season 5. It was too long a gap so I forgot everything that happened. Show is good enough to watch it completely again.

Just watched the final episode of Peaky Blinders . Brilliantly dark series , a proper finale that went out with a bang . Quite a lot of bangs , in fact . What I just found out is that the BBC is making a feature length one off episode which they say will tie up any loose ends . Can't wait for that .

We've been watching Hoarders, on both YouTube and Hulu. We've pretty much seen all the episodes, so on Sunday when my wife dozed off on the couch, I decided to start watching Nightwatch.

It originally airs on A&E. It "... follows first responders (Police, Fire, and EMS) in New Orleans working the night shift 2000 hours - 0400 hours. Cameras follow firefighters to their calls, EMS to patients' homes or whatever situation they may be called to, as well as Police chases or patrols."

I mainly enjoy the EMS story lines. My wife likes the fact that it doesn't just focus on one group. I also like that it shows how the three groups work together.

And the best part is that they let the viewer know how the different cases turned out at the end of the show (via text on screen). So when you see the guy who got shot in the head and didn't lose consciousness, you don't have to wonder if he made it or not (he did).

I just saw the final episode of Australian Survivor, and watching it while watching the latest "woke" episodes of Survivor US, I have come to the conclusion that something is indeed rotten in Denmark, Kansas. The Australian series was always about ten days longer than the US series, but now the US series has cut the time of each series in half, so it's not too taxing on the contestants, and they spend an unhealthy amount of time whining on national TV about how hard the game is. Next season I expect they'll make it a sleepover with footie pajamas and bunny slippers and care packages from home.

WiFi or Ethernet, HDMI connects to TV. It works pretty well, but doesn't receive some channels I can on the TV, so I only use it to record and watch the recorded shows. I haven't bought data yet either. Time will tell.

I've been looking for a dvr for a while and never found Tablo. Thanks for that!

And this is why we no longer pay for tv.

My latest guilty pleasure is revisiting some of my favorite shows from my youth.

Battlestar Galactica
Buck Rogers
Space 1999
Fantasy Island

And two of my very favorites I've been working through,

I had never watched an episode of The Sopranos, but last month I saw a few clips on YouTube and decided to watch an episode. I'm now halfway through season five.

I really like the History Channel. Variety of stuff - some I do not
watch like "Forged in Fire". But, I like Pawn Brokers, Pickers, and
the latest programs about American History - Industrialists, Technology
that changed the world.

Beavis and Butthead are back. I saw the new movie, and then four new episodes came out. Still one of the funniest shows on TV.

The Bear, on Hulu is really well done. Lot's of yelling however, and you might not want to hear the word 'chef' for a while.

I was a bit late getting to Severance on Apple TV+ (came out at the end of 2021) but some unique story telling and a season finale reminiscent of the classic 'cliff hanger.'

That was a really thought provoking series.

I'm watching Christopher Walken in The Outlaws now.

It is the summer of odd English-folk for us. First it was "Brian and Charles", a very odd flick, followed by "Phantom of the Open" and I laughed my arse off. Soon I assume we will see "Mrs Harris goes to Paris". Not sure what I'll think, but you brits do odd really well.

'Severance' on Apple TV is brilliant, amazing, mesmerizing… on many levels. Season 1 was released earlier this year and Season 2 cannot get here fast enough.

Le Wife does he TV/streaming thing way more than I do, but since I have YouTube Premium (a perk of subscribing to YouTube Music, which was my primary aim), I do get hooked on the occasional vintage TV series of my youth. Right now? The Green Hornet, which turns out to be better than I remembered. At the time, I was intrigued by it being pitched as an "adult" (i.e. less-campy/silly) alternative to the Batman series running concurrently. And, yes, it was. Besides: Bruce Lee. That is all.)


Yes: Cooler that That Other Masked Guy.

There are varying degrees of coolness. Batman had some great dance moves.



And he was willing to put himself in danger to protect nuns and ducklings.



It's kinda hard to top that level of coolness.

The missus was trying to find some scary stuff to watch. Kind of struck out until she found that Guillermo del Toro did a Netflix series called Cabinet of Curiosities, a collection of 8 short stories. I'm really not a fan of the horror genre, but del Toro is really a master storyteller, and I've gotten hooked into pretty much every movie he's done. We're on #3 at the moment, and I'm pretty sure we'll stay until the end.

Am I the last person in America to see the Sopranos?
Checked out the 6 seasons from the library.
Watched it alone, well with my dog. Problem is - she goes around saying "F_ck!" all the time now!
