Been watching the Rookie with Nathan Fillion, pretty neat.
Also watching an older show called Elementary. Love it.

The Last of Us on HBO...phenomenal first 3 episodes so far. You should watch it.
ďBut it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.Ē - Martin Luther King, Jr

I watched up to episode 3, haven't progressed further due to life getting in the way. That means I get to binge 2 episodes when we sit down or 3 episodes. Girlfriend works 7 on 7 off (nurse) and can't watch with out her.

I will say I did not like the first episode. It was a little boring. Episode 3 was pretty sad. It did hit home even though I am not into gay porn lol. ( I know it's not porn) just not my preference but the story I thought was done well. If I cried at shows I could imagine a little leak would occur.

I do like Last Of Us, but having played the game (not the sequel though, never got around to it), the sometimes 1:1 adaptation of a scene and dialogue kinda makes me feel like Iím a little punished for having already played the game, story wise; but Bella Ramsay and Pedro Pascal are killing it in their roles.

I do feel weird they took the time to devote an entire episode to a side character from the game, only because I feel like - risk of some spoilers here if youíre not caught up to episode 5 -
Spoiler: show
they made it to Wyoming and then the university really fast after that. If youíre going to pad it out, pad it out. Give us more Ellie and Joel moments not from  the game or give us more of Melanie Lynskeys characters backstory and I dunno, maybe keep her alive to some capacity?
Thatís extremely nitpicky though, ultimately Iíve been enjoying it.

I think so fat they have done a fantastic job with the Last of US.  Some of the changes I have not enjoyed as much as others but overall it's a great show. Great game, a great show so far.  They last of us 2 is one of the best games I have ever played for those that have not indulged yet.

I find myself not really a fan of much in the way of new content. Maybe it's just me being my usual stubborn self, maybe I just reject modernity when it comes to content, I don't know (nor do I really concern myself with it). I've been rewatching The X-Files with a group of my friends, and one of the things I've noticed is my growing contempt for the show. When I was younger, I loved the series. When I watched through it last time, it was with someone else that I no longer associate with, and even then, some of the episodes ground my gears all wrong.

Yesterday we watched Humbug and The Calusari. Humbug is one of my favorites, whereas the Calusari I absolutely despise. And as much as I like the concept of the series, as fondly as I think of the series, I kind of only really like the first season. Some of my favorite episodes are not in the first season, but the first season has some of my favorites, like Ice and Darkness Falls, Jersey Devil. Of course it has Tooms, a villain I didn't really like. We're finally coming to an end to season 2, we should have been way beyond season 2, but like a prick I've put off watching X-Files with them and instead we watched other stuff. But like a bad case of leprosy, it's just kind of dangling out there, ready to fall off, so finally I shrugged and we're going to finish season 2. Only 9 more to go! Seasons 6-9 are just god awful, and season 10/11 are thankfully short. I haven't even seen the final season, to be honest, the revival series filled me with the same dread I had for Twin Peaks: The Return, and just like Twin Peaks' revival series, I didn't much care for what I saw in s10.

Reinvestigated some old series that they don't even play anymore on TV, like Spicy City and First Wave. They're both a bit rough around the edges, but they're not the worst. First Wave reminds me of The Outer Limits (90s revival series) where they throw in sex scenes, but it was regular network TV, so any nudity was always off-screen. I hate those scenes for the same reason I hate nudity in an HBO series, it's just not content I ever cared for in TV.

We watched the original Ghost Adventures "documentary", and then the first season of the show. Yeah, don't do that. Usually I have a pretty strong tolerance for crap, but I'm a hard skeptic and that one just made me want to punch holes in the wall. Zak Bagans is like Adam Sandler, if you get joy out stupid, you might like it.

Xfinity took away subscribers free Peacock Premium so I have not checked out Twisted Metal. However, I did hook up my wife's PS2 and she inexplicably still owns Twisted Metal 2 and 3, so I have that going for me 😂

And yeah, Futurama reboot is Futurama. Not groundbreaking but good for some laughs.

I should add that, if you have Peacock, check out Killing It with Craig Anderson. I can't speak to the second season that just released today for the reasons mentioned in the post above this, but the first season was good.
