DS9 "Ascension"- rewatching the entire series
Agents of Shield. Waco starts here tonight and I might take a look at that.
I've been doing a series watch of Lucifer over on Netflix. Never watched the show before and, hearing some good 'buzz' figured I'd give it a try. Currently nearing the end of the second season and really enjoying it. The actors are top notch and the writing is pretty damn good. The writers have the rapid fire witty dialog down to a science. Recommended.
Added Starz to my Hulu for a free week trial to rewatch Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Haven't watched it since going with my sister & nephews to watch it at the Alamo Drafthouse in Lubbock a couple of years ago. We're getting together on Thursday to see Spider-Man: Far From Home at the Alamo Drafthouse in North Richland Hills.
I binged the whole lot too and finished a couple of weeks back. I enjoyed it quite a bit.
Currently, I'm catching up with Handmaid's.
"A Stolen Life"--an old Bette Davis movie in which she impersonates her own twin!
I'm rewatching the George Reeves Adventures of Superman series yet again. It never gets old, and Reeves remains a thoroughly enjoyable leading man, full of easy charm and charisma without a trace of artifice.
I've never watched the whole series, just bits and pieces.
OK watched Avengers Infinity War and god that was trash
Checking out Triple Frontier on netflix.
Bob Saget: Zero to Sixty, a standup special filmed in Brooklyn, via Hulu.
It's part of a project to do a chronological rewatch of every live-action Superman related thing ever.
I'm particularly looking forward to the Smallville rewatch, for the weekly scene where Lana comes up to the barn loft and gives Clark a whole buncha shit about some damn thing or other, then Clark looks forlorn while a sad pop song plays.
(My wife says, "You'd put up with it. You know you would." And she's not wrong.)
That is one of the big things that cheesed me off with Smallvile. I gave up after 2 seasons of it. How did the series end?
By essentially becoming Metropolis in its latter seasons, with Clark and Lois Lane working at the Daily Planet while maintaining only tenuous connections to the series' namesake locale. (Lana was long gone before the show's end.) They still managed to avoid having Clark suit up as Superman until the closing minutes of the final episode, however.
I kid Smallville, but I actually really love the show (even the Clark/Lana melodrama).
Made a start on the third season of Stranger Things
Spoiler alert: Clark Kent becomes Superman.
Seriously, Lex becomes his arch-enemy, and Clark Kent ends up with Lois Lane, not Lana, and he goes to work for the Daily Planet, and in the final moments of final episode he finally puts on the suit and becomes the Man of Steel.
And Chloe gets busted for sex-trafficking . . . oh wait, that was in real life.
In one of last night's Adventures of Superman episodes, "The Mind Machine," I spotted something I never noticed before. A Daily Planet headline is shown regarding Lois's upcoming testimony against a mob boss. The article's text begins, "Lois Lane, comely Planet reporter ...."
Aw, man. Different times.
Oh god most women even back then would have found that insulting I think.
Went to see Spider-Man: Far From Home 2D with my family at an Alamo Drafthouse for the Fourth of July.
Back at my rental now, watching The Old Man & the Gun via Hulu.
Tried to watch an ABC Studios International joint production called Reef Break with Poppy Montgomery and Ray Stevenson. It looks amazing filmed in Queensland, but holy crap is the writing terrible. Real amateur hour with the dialogue and plotting. I’m out after two episodes.
