Woke up early so I could catch up on Big Hero 6: The Series at noon. The episode was about Hiro, Fred, and Baymax snooping in on Gogo's private alone time in the woods where she likes to secretly go bird watching. One thing I am noticing is that Baymax being a personal healthcare companion is being given the instructor role in describing bacteria that appear in hot tubs as well as identifying a dung beetle. I also couldn't help but kind of agree with mountain man saying that technology will doom us all in the future since I kind of believe in that apocalyptic world shown in Terminator and The Matrix where the machines will one day kill us and/or enslave us. But that's just a crackpot theory, right? :bigeyes: :???:
And so Javert, you see it's true. This man bears no more guilt than you! Who am I? TWO-FOUR-SIX-OH-OOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! - Jean Valjean (Les Miserables)

The Haunting of Hill House Netflix series. Flawed masterpiece. More of a journey over a destination thing. Episode 5 is some of the best television horror I have ever seen.

^ I had someone recommend this show to me too. They described as both "predictable in places" but "throughly enjoyable" so definitely gonna check it out now.

I have a hard time describing it without giving it away. Parts of it are phenomenal, parts of it are... not, but the overall experience is worth ten hours of your time. The show itself is beautiful (thought very dark- I mean literally, as befits much of it taking place in an old hulk of a house)

Rewatched much of Season 4 of Bosch. S5 can't get here fast enough. Supremely comfy procedural cop show.

Nice. Will make a effort to watch the 2 films for the 1st time & start the show.

You can skip the 1999 movie, it's a travesty. If you want a fuller experience of the miniseries, read the book first. It's pretty short and it's a classic.

I'd agree with that though I did find some of the imagery in the 1999 movie really unsettling but its not true to the original at all but if you ever wanted to write a horror novel and needed nightmare ideas for an insane asylum the 1999 has some really terrible stuff going on that's very fitting.

I totally understand, tring to describe a show is difficult without giving away certain things. But thank you for the good recommendation ^_^

Also, just finished watching an Aussie series called Rake. Fifth season came out, little disappointed that its the final season, but it was fucking hilarious. Show's about a drugged up, drunkass barrister in Sydney who makes loads of bad choices(personally and professionally), but always still ends up somehow winning his court cases. Definitely worth a watch if you like humor, the law, and hearing the word "fuckwit" a whole lot.

Let's see... Amazon Prime just got a bunch of new stuff in, so I'm currently doing a much needed rewatch of Babylon 5 (currently in season 4), which will be followed by Battlestar Galactica, and then the three Stargate series.
