    Binged Cobra Kai S3. As a child of the 80s, I enjoyed it very much.

    Thanks for this, I was not aware of it being out there. I also tend to like Adam Carolla.

    I just caught "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" 1947.
    I try not to judge historical works by modern standards. But this must have seemed a little sketchy even in 1947. Basically court order pedophilia.

    From IDBM:
    A high school girl falls for a playboy artist, with screwball results.

    Cary Grant plays Dick Nugent. I don't recall them ever mentioning his age, but it's going to be late 30s or 40s. Shirley Temple is 17-year-old Susan Turner. In a rather ridiculous plot, Dick is ordered by Susan's sister (who happens to be a judge) to date Susan. It's hard to imagine the innocence that would allow somebody to think this is funny rather than creepy.

    The Watch - this is a police force in a fantasy world city based on the Disc World books. On BBC America. The initial reviews were negative. I found it boring and the characters unappealing or interesting.

    I like the Disc World books, haven't read the latest ones, too many of them. The world on a turtle is neat.

    What were the standards in Texas back then?
    Lawyer friend used to always rib me, 17 and a day, because I was mistaken for someone much younger and even a few years ago, had someone around my age, try to set me up with their daughter.

    Just watched I See You. Itís a slow burn, but worth it IMO. 4 out of 5 stars for me.

    Hardest part though was, as someone who crushed on Helen Hunt many years back, she isnít looking well.

    Just finished up The Mandalorian.

    7/10, at best.

    Doubt I'll watch the third season(it's the only thing on Disney I was interested in)

    Is it just me, or is everyone in the Star Wars universe just a little bit stupid?

    Yes. Next question?

    Longer answer: it's dramatic stupidity.
    "What's Occam's razor?"
    "Probably a razor that belongs to some dude named Occam."

    Watching 30 Coin, on HBO. It is a supernatural thriller from Spain. Based on the powers of the 30 pieces of silver, the price for Jesus. If you read the Harry Dresden books, these are bad news. This show makes Dresden look like Sesame Street. I'm a grown up, with significant weaponry close at hand and it scares me.

    What do you mean, "a little bit"? I mean, it's a universe with casual interstellar travel, yet a couple of robots draw so much power that they have to be stored powered down and small arms technology doesn't seem to have evolved past WWII level of Earth tech.

    Still though, if you ignore the bits that don't make any sense Mandalorian is a very entertaining space western. There are not nearly enough westerns available on streaming services.


    Speaking of entertaining, Sniper: Legacy was surprisingly so, although not the way I imagine the makers of that, er, movie intended. A very brainless action flik with some sniperesque gobbletygook mixed in, but absolutely nothing makes a lick of sense. (I did learn though that apparently sprinting is a very important skill for a sniper. Seems sniping is about 90% done by sprinting while holding onto a really big rifle. Somehow the basic sniper class I took omitted this entirely. Perhaps I should complain to the instructors? ) IMDB score is 5,3 which seems very generous. Recommended for people with a basic understanding of long range marksmanship, a large liquor stash and a strange sense of humor. If you are really weird and/or tired enough, you might even enjoy it sober. But I'm sure a healthy dose of alcohol helps.
