It could be described as one 8 hour long sophomoric joke. But it really captures the surrealness of the High School experience.

I'm definitely okay with that.

There was one time I got blamed for drawing a dick on a mousepad in the computer lab in high school and it wasn't me. I was totalllyyy framed for it and I had to go to the vice principle's office and everything. I was like "yeahhh sure. It was me...Not one of the 10 dick-obsessed boys in that same room who have dicks doodled all over their stuff!". True story.

This post is because I just finished a series and needed to say something to someone about it...

Early last week I checked out Halt and Catch Fire on Amazon Prime.  All 4 series are available on Prime, so you can watch the whole thing without waiting.  By the end of it, I felt emotionally attached, so be prepared for that if you're susceptible.  Anyway, check it out.

And while I'm naming series I've enjoyed lately, Good Girls Revolt (Amazon Prime) is quite good, but only one series is out so far.

The Marvelous Ms. Maisel (Amazon Prime) surprised me, too.... again, just one series so far.

On Channel 4 (Hulu if you're in the US), The Handmaid's Tale was uncomfortably good, and I'm looking forward to the next series (25 April, according to Google, but that's probably the US Hulu release date... I don't know when we'll get it over here).

Over on Netflix, I enjoyed Alias Grace, even if it was a bit ... uh... weird.  And, of course, The Crown was very good.  I have not enjoyed Victoria quite as much because it seems a bit melodramatic, and the characters seem rather binary to me.  But if there's nothing else and you want to chill... *shrug*

And, finally, The Good Place is back!  There's a new episode Friday (January 26), and another on February 2.  That might be the end of series 2, I don't know.  But those two are showing up, and I'm looking forward to watching them... and I think the most recent episode available now is new...?  Anybody else know?

There should be more than 2 out but those are the only two showing as unavailable. You are right in that it means there's only 2 episodes until the end of series 2. I'm gutted as I love that show SO much haha (Not sure what direction they will/can take with season 3 where it still works and works well.

Last week we marathoned through "End of the F***ing World". It was REALLY good. It's based on a graphic novel. Is channel 4 (or Netflix). I would say episode 1 & 2 are a bit slow/weird and might start to turn you off, but try to make it through to episode 3!!! Literally I wasn't sure I wanted to watch anymore UNTIL I hit episode 3 (as did my husband) and we were like OMG YES! ONE MORE EPISODE! They are quite short as well. We watched another show based on a Manga called Erased. That's on netflix. If you don't mind awkward dubbing and REALLY uncomfortable content, it was actually a pretty good show. We enjoyed it. I liked when the Japanese dub ended up being odd (like they all shouted CONGRATULATIONS! while clapping after singing happy birthday). It does get pretty messed up though so is probably not something the majority would enjoy.

Other than that, I've been watching animes I've already seen in the past and Friends since they were all added on Netflix. It makes for good background noise :) I'm WFH today so will see what I can pick that won't impact the hubster.

We've just gotten into Hunted on Channel 4.  Series 1 and 2 are On Demand right now and Series 3 is 3 episodes in.

It's a reality show. 

The premise is 10ish people are told that the clock has started and they are being hunted.  They are supposed to be on the run for 28 days.  Former MI5 agents are hunting them and using available technology to track their every move and catch them.  It's VERY eye opening into how much access into our lives the government has.  Within minutes, they have playbacks of the phone calls that people have made.  It's unbelievable.  I hate the hunters and am ALWAYS rooting for the person on the run.  As I'm sure is what everyone else is doing!   ;D

Excellent post!  Did you offer to draw a dicks for them so they could compare styles?  I'd bet it's a lot like a signature, difficult to forge.

I've finally watched it now and it was HILARIOUS. It highlights how it would be hard to forge a dick drawing! WHAT IF YOU FORGET THE BALL HAIRS?!

Oooh, is that what it's about?  I had seen that it was really popular, but I knew nothing about it and didn't investigate.  I will check that out.  It'll make my spidey-sense paranoia about government intrusion go all tingly.

The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

Oh. People in America are obsessed! And the seasons have only been 13 episodes (right?) so I definitely see a 3rd in the future.That was no way to wrap up a final season! Haha. I won't say anymore. 😁

Are they?! I feel like I've had to tell all the people I knew in the US! I literally begged my sister to watch it and she was like mehh...I don't know...then watched it and LOVED it!

Finally watched it! I can definitely see now how they are leaving a season 3 open :D I am so excited!  It's soo good!

Last night we watched a movie on weird/funny names called The Strange Name Movie. I know I was suppose to learn about how to not giggle at people's names but yeah. That was excellent.


Trying to start watching Better Call Saul again as we never made it through season 2 or 3 (can't remember) but I end up just watching Friends or anime.... Oops. I keep adding things to my watch list and then never getting the time to watch them.
My, how time flies....
