    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!

    I'm glad he's doing features again, instead of messing around with longer-format storytelling like he did with Mindhunter. This particularly sounds intriguing as it's gone into areas he's been in before, but he'll surely bring something new to the hit-man subgenre.

    This movie does sound right up his alley, and I'm definitely glad he's making another movie, but Mindhunter was amazing. It took me a few episodes to really get into Mindhunter, but that show is SO GOOD and it absolutely deserves a conclusion and a pay-off to the whole BTK subplot it's been building toward. I hope Fincher finds the time to return to it and finish what he started. I'm not sure I trust anyone else to take over in his place. MAYBE Sam Esmail of Mr. Robot if we can't get Fincher.

    Mindhunter is flipping fantastic! I hope he finishes it. At least give us one more season to wrap up stuff. I absolutely love this show.

    Just caught up with Cobra Kai, any opinions?

    I thought it followed a similar trajectory to Stranger Things: first season was one of the best pieces of TV I've seen this decade; subsequent ones are ok but disappointing compared with the first run.

    I love it. All 3 seasons. Comparing it to Stranger Things is unfair imo. Stranger Things is actual art. I'm not saying it's Citizen Kane, but there's real storytelling, real acting, bigger budget...craft. Cobra Kai is cheesy fun nonsense, with a huge scoop of nostalgia for those that grew up with the films. There's no budget. The acting is generally decent to abysmal, with a few exceptions. I guess b/c I don't take Cobra Kai seriously at all but still adore it, I can't see any downswing from season to season.

    One thing they do have in common is the complete lack of police/security when the biggest, most violent set pieces of the season are taking place (think about the mall scenes from the finale of Stranger Things this past season). And in Cobra Kai, some of these kids need to go to actual prison for the aggressive first degree assaults they perpetrated. Cobra Kai threw that one Miyagi-Do kid through a fucking window! Tori could legit be charged with attempted murder for what she did in season 2 with the claw. Show is hilarious.

    I really disliked I Car A Lot. It's been a while since I despised a movie so much. Spoiler: There were no likeable characters at all, and the ending was completely unsatisfactory.

    I'm only halfway through. Having grown up in the suburbs of Boston, we heard about this a lot, for many years. Really enjoying it.

    Also if you like museums at all and have a chance to go to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, I highly recommend it. It's a really cool place.

    Netflix Nabs Post-PVOD Streaming Rights to Sony's Feature Films in Multiyear Deal

    For theatrically released films, the five-year pact will begin with Sony's 2022 slate, which includes Morbius, Uncharted, Bullet Train and the sequel to the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. In the future, it will also cover installments from major Sony franchises like Jumanji and Bad Boys. Sources tell THR that the deal is worth roughly $1 billion to Sony.
