The Punisher on Netflix. I am a huge fan of Marvel (and DC, and Star Trek, and the Expanse, and...) I have been enjoying the sheer, visceral, "No fuck you" of the main character's response to...everything. There is also an element of concern with veterans (of which I am one) in the narrative, which makes it especially poignant for me.

So yeah, if you have the next 43 years free, watch all of the Marvel shows on Netflix (I am still working my way through them), then AGENTS of Shield, than the 13 Marvel movies. And Legion. And the X-Men.

This is a work in progress.

Better watch them before they get taken down. Disney is starting their own streaming service and they won't be renewing their contract with Netflix when it comes up.

I finally finished watching The Grand Tour on Amazon. I actually enjoyed it more than Top Gear. They were able to get away with a lot more than when they were on BBC. The show itself was hilarious and I love the chemistry between Clarkson, Hammond, and May.

Also, my boyfriend will never know, but Hammond is totally my celebrity crush.
Hell hath no fury like me when I’m slightly inconvenienced and hungry.

I love my car more than I love most people.

I watched a couple of episodes of Knightfall, crappy trying be earnest.
The first episode of the new series of the The Trip To... Spain seemed to fail.

Has anyone ever introduced Icarus to Dara O'Briain?

Detectorists
It's one those cute British shows.
On balance it's OK. The genre usually has a couple of normal people living in a village of idiots.
There might be as many as five normals living in a village of idiots, it's fighting the stereotype.

I'm not turning detectorist but an inspiration to get off your butt and get out in the world is good.



They're a couple. She's a school teacher he's an ugly mature aged student with a wandering eye.
You have to suspend your disbelief that she's with him, she doesn't seem to have poor self esteem.

Thank you for the warning, I shall avoid it.


This on the other hand is a truly inspiring and by turns funny, sad and horrifying.

Love that movie.  Was delighted when some little girls dressed up as characters from Hidden Figures for Halloween.

Currently watching "The Rains Came".  Love Myrna Loy.

I'm watching Santa Shark. Yes, it's as stupid as the title sounds. Shark in a frigging Santa hat terrorizes a waterfront community after being brought to life by a magic pen.
