ready to endorse legion. first ep was great but i wasnt sure if it would devolve into some rote marvel property. has managed to stary weird albeit aimless in a traditional plot sense. certainly worth a look. airs on fx.
Looking for something to take my mind off of the news I stumbled upon Detectorists, so far so good but I'm only one episode in. NYT: DETECTORISTS Britain (Acorn) - Mackenzie Crook’s melancholy comedy about the minor triumphs of a pair of friends who share a passion for metal detecting is the most delicate of shows — it feels as if it might float away while you’re watching it. In its second season, Mr. Crook and especially Toby Jones continued their marvelous work as small-timers who, most of the time, mask their frustration and rage in hilariously ineffectual diffidence. NETFLIX.
I've been watching Black Mirror on netflix. Premise is a lot like The Twilight Zone, each episode is a complete story with a moral. The stories are usually set in the near future and concern our relationship to technology and media. Also kind of reminds me of William Gibson's novel The Peripheral which I am currently reading.
gilmore girls reunion marathon!
Either you already know, or more likely, you don't care about such things, but I'm amazed to be watching what is apparently an actual show (and not just some drug fueled nightmare,) Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party. Yes, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg. Throwing a dinner party. This episode feature Seth Rogan and Wiz Khalifa as guests. They are making fried chicken. I'm sure there are crazier things in the world, but wow. This episode started with Martha and Snoop in a faux bed with Snoop saying "I'm not high right now, but whoever gave us this show must have been."
