What are you watching?

Mrs. Chainsaw and I went to the movies to see It last night. We thought it was pretty good! Yeah, some nitpicks here and there, but worth checking out if you like horror stories. 

The movie "experience" however was kind of a letdown - $47 small coke, one speaker broken, two different sets of people nearby who could not keep from talking the whole time... reminded me why we usually wait to watch at home.  :|

Re: What are you watching?

My daughter thought it was pretty good as well. The inconsiderate folks are the reason I went from seeing movies twice a month to maybe twice a year.  I wouldn't mind the cost if they would jam cell phones and throw the disruptive people out.  Well ok I would still complain about the cost...

Re: What are you watching?

Planning to see IT this coming Friday on my day off. My wife and I have been watching the TV series Midnight, Texas. It's a little on the cheesy side but entertaining enough we haven't felt the need to quit watching, yet. Recently finished up season two of Colony, which I enjoyed, looking forward to season three. Trying to catch up on Supernatural, finishing up season 11 and then on to season 12. Patiently awaiting S2 of Stanger Things.

Re: What are you watching?

My wife and I finished up the Dirk Gently series.

Definitely more "inspired by" the books than "by the book". It feels a bit like a prequel to the books and maybe a bit of an origin story, too.

Not bad overall, but I have some rather forgiving standards.


What? Me worry?

I'm looking forward to the new season of Dirk Gently, which begins this coming weekend.
Just binge watched "American Horror Story: Roanoke".  Brilliant.  Not for the squeamish.
Loving "The Orville".

I'm surprised how much I like "The Orville". I kinda hate McFarlane (mostly how he tends to drive a gag into the ground). Some of the humor can be skipped or changed out but :shrug:. I expect I'll stop watching after season 2 since that's when he's stuff starts to get stale IMO.


What? Me worry?
