Your favorite character is Dr. Smith. Don't think I want to run into you in dark alley anytime soon TC.

Just finished watching Kodachrome on Netflix.
Arg what a load of preposterous posturing.
Take any popular film story line, boy gets girl, boy loses girl,  dad is dying and wants to connect with his child, mix it up with pop music, add in some warn out philosophy etc etc etc.

I was starting to gag near the end.
I'm sure someone not as jaded as I am will enjoy it.

I did enjoy the first 5 eps of The Orville I found on my son's Plex account.
Now that was fun, right down to the horrid pun from one of Shakespeare's play.
I won't tell you which one, don't want to spoil it.

I found the personal dialogue lacking maturity, but the science behind the silliness was good.
The art of the space ship designs kept my interest too.

I watched the first episode of the original Dynasty on Amazon Prime. I have been enjoying the reboot so I figured I would give the original a chance, though from what I understand it doesn't get really good until the second season.

I rented Winchester on Amazon. It was okay. It wasn't as scary as I was hoping. It relied too much on jump scares and didn't really build an atmosphere of dread. The acting was great, and it had a good moral at the center of the story so it wasn't a waste of $4 or anything  but I doubt it is a movie I would watch again.

I capitulate. There is no way I can continue to binge watch Gray's Anatomy.
I made it to season 7 on Netflix flipped to season 14 ep 23 on Plex, looked up the characters story line on wiki that I wanted to fallow and that is it. I did go back to season 7 to see the musical ep. That was worth the time, however, not enough tech to keep me interested, the season 14 tumor joke was in poor taste, the rest is soap opera porn, yelling and over thinking every tiny detail until you want to scream at them. "Shut Up!"

Today, after seeing an image of Adolf Hitler in a first publication of MK I knew why the eyes of the actor who plays Owen Hunt freaked me out. Amazing how identical the bone structures are.

Moving on, or back to YouTube to catch up on the latest archaeological finds.

I started watching Haven again. I had begun it some time ago but never finished. In fact, I'm still on the first season. I also watched the first season of Eureka on Amazon Prime. I never watched that show when it aired, either. I am also watching Warehouse 13 (though on DVD) and the three shows complement each other well. I miss this era of the SyFy channel.

I liked all three of those shows, but especially Warehouse 13.  It would be nice to see a revival, or some sequel movies or something.

I skipped away from YouTube enough with those rocks from all over the planet that look like they where quarried by the same advanced technique, and certainly not by humans of any era, so far.  

My video drive was returned to me and the first show I watched was Warehouse 13.
It was truly ahead of it's time and some of the new secrets I have learned on line they where showing them to us.
Like the magnetic web that envelopes the planet that can be used as a alternative energy source.
They didn't go that way with it but they make use of it in one of the early episodes.

Switched to Sanctuary next.
Season two was worth the view, one and 3, pretty much a pass.

I found The Adventure Brothers on Plex tonight.
I am not a fan of cartoon done in this minimalist style.
But I'm busy ignoring it for the most part.
It's pretty trashy. The jokes are often bad puns.
I have been heard to LOL so can't be all bad.

What I do find super freaky is the classy Necromancer named, Dr. Orpheus.
That just my crazy delusional mind a play, right Orph?

Ah, The Venture Brothers. I haven't seen that one in a while, but I like it.  The visual style is an homage to the Saturday morning cartoons of the 60s and 70s, like Jonny Quest and Fantastic Voyage.

I also like Warehouse 13 and Sanctuary-- especially Warehouse 13.

I have finished the first seasons of both Haven and Eureka. I liked both shows, though I think I'd give the edge to Haven. I was surprised at how dark and depressing Eureka was at times. I mean, in the first few episodes they deal with a man who had cloned his wife because she didn't want to have family with him. Then there's the child who has lost both his parents (one murdered by a "trusted" member of the community) who has to deal with the fall-out. It was heavy stuff which I was not expecting.

Sanctuary was one of those shows I almost meant to get around to watching and then never did. I might have to one of these days.

There are some interesting twists in Eureka-- they do something later on in the show that never gets undone, which surprised me at the time.

Still working on Haven and Eureka. I'm taking my time which is hard because I like both shows and want to plow through them.

I watched two episodes of The Munsters Today on Hulu. I didn't even know this show existed until it popped up on Hulu. For those that don't know, the premise is that the Munsters tried out these sleeping machines made by Grandpa. They were only supposed to be asleep for a night but instead they sleep from the 60s to the 80s.

The show is cheesy and bad and I love it. It won't be for everyone and I get that but I find it entertaining.

Rats, someone deleted my Eureka files.

Finally some clear images of Mars.


Not exactly what we all want to take a boo at, it's a start.

Someone please tell me why anyone would want to go there?
Prison would be more accommodating.

YouTube:    Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords

Out of England.
Proof that Thatcher and Reagan are the King and Queen of Hell!
So much misery was created for folks who could no longer make enough
interest on their savings for their retirement so they invested in
rentals.

The tenants pretty much have a good go of it. There are systems in place
to make sure the landlords don't screw them over. However the landlords are
definitely being fleased with court costs, loss of income, and a grand to
call the bailiff in if the delinquent tenant refuses to budge. Not to forget the
damage, pilfering and carnage that might occur to their property.
One Tenant even took the back yard lawn. Just rolled it up.  

Lesson, better to flip them to the next fool and give your profit to the
casinos! Same odds, less stress. :D

I stumbled across a sitcom called Out of Practice on Amazon Prime. It only lasted a season but I'm enjoying it quite a bit. It centers on a family of five who are all doctors, but the youngest son Ben is a psychiatrist while everyone else in the family are physicians so they see him as a lesser doctor. The parents are divorced with the father now dating his secretary. The oldest son is a horn dog plastic surgeon. The daughter is a lesbian who works in the ER and has middle child syndrome.

It has a good cast. Henry Winkler, Stockard Channing, Christopher Gorham, Ty Burrell, Paula Marshall, and Jennifer Tilly. I've watched four episodes so far. I'm trying to just watch an episode a day so I don't burn through it too fast.

When I found out that my Daughter-in-law was taking a course on a profession that will soon be replaced by technology, I pointed her to a few that she might be interested in, but not the one on Psychology.
In the medical field it is call the dummy doctorate and I didn't want to insult her. :D

This video is a long explanation of why the US refuses to convert to the metric system?
A math challenge for those of you who love their numbers.



Odd image for the title page.
He did not explore the use of the pyramids, but I suspect, if we recovered it in the missing element and diverted the Nile back to it's original course right next to them. That we might be able to tap into the magnetic grid?

One of the best movie I've ever seen, Swiss Army Man on Netflix.
Mixed reviews but it's really out of the box, very tender, and super silly.

No way I could avoid watching any of it. Constant action and innovation.
Certainly beats all the recent stuff I keep ignoring and relegating as
back ground noise.

I've wanted to watch that. I'll have to add it to my queue.

Right now I am watching Doctor Who, bouncing between the 3rd and 5th Doctors. I might take a break and go back to watching Haven and Eureka. I decided to take a break so I don't burn through those series too fast.
