    watched the first episode of S4 of The Crown and it was alright. Slower paced than usual at times and was oddly tensely paced for the explosion. I mean...spoiler for history I guess? But also they tried to make it seem tense for some reason. Also I am by no means a historian of England in the 70s/80s but they almost seem to make her a sympathetic character in this episode but all I know about it is that she seems to be almost universally reviled.

    Oh and the UK government had to put out an announcement that the show is a work of fiction, so that was funny.

    OMG, they are BRUTAL to Prince Charles and Camilla this season, making Diana into far more of a martyr than she really deserves. Consequently, Prince Charles and Camilla are being attacked on their Instagram page, holy shit.

    The stuff about Margaret Thatcher this season, OMG. I was in high school when she was around, so I remember some of it but you don't really pay a whole hell of a lot of attention to shit across the pond like that when you're in high school. Ugh.

    I more fully understand that English Beat song, now.

    I started watching "The Queen's Gambit" last night and got sucked into it like a fucking VORTEX, holy shit, this is great stuff. I binge-watched about 4 episodes until I realized it was 3 am and I had to get to bed.

    I disagree. I would like to have that beard someday though.

    OMG. I LOVE JOHNNY WEIR! He’s always been one of my favorite figure skaters, but he’s also just one of the coolest people on the planet. His IG feed is THE BEST (especially his “Quas” lol).

    Still have not gotten around to “Spinning Out.” Reviews say Johnny is the only worthwhile part of it.

    I’ve been watching Johnny and Tara commentate the US Championships the last few nights in Vegas! So great to see them together again!

    Did you watch him on Dancing with the Stars? OMG he was AWESOME!

    i had no idea they were commentating on anything that's currently happening! i hope i can find some of that online somewhere. where has it been airing?

    have you watched Wedding Cake Championship on food network? not sure if it's still on their app (or on the cooking channel app) especially with discovery+ (BARF) launching, but if you can find it, johnny & tara host it and it's (mostly) really fun.

    Bridgerton: WTF.

    It ended up being kinda Nancy Drew meets Jane Austin meets soft porn.

    Aaaaaaaand now THE biggest Netflix series in history.

    David Fincher is directing an assassin movie titled The Killer for Netflix (the first project of his exclusive four-year deal he signed with them) with Michael Fassbender being eyed for the lead role. I'm excited by the sound of all of that, but it also got me thinking how likely it is that he'll tap TR & AR for the score again! I'm hoping they're already on board for the score and that we get more of the aggressive kind of stuff we got in the Watchmen score!
