    I remember hearing about the bat "woman" show and the lead character identifying as she/they/it and how important it was that the replacement was also she/they/it.

    His Dark Materials. Three episodes in, it's a good watch even if the books were originally meant for kids in the way Harry Potter was too.

    The main actress (a young girl who plays the part of Lyra) looks a lot like the younger version of a student in my class 3 years ago. Then again, after 21 years of teaching most kids tend to look like somebody you used to know. Honestly there are only so many faces.

    I thought the CGI animals ('daemons') in the show were gonna come off as corny but it just takes some getting used to in the pilot.

    Never read any of the books.

    A second season is underway.

    I remember somebody mentioned Cobra Kai. It's a lot of fun, very easy to watch.

    Check out Away on Netflix. It's a new show. I watched the first season yesterday. It's about an astronaut crew heading to Mars.

    Season 1 is cool. Season 2 starts to get really cheesy.


    Me reaching for the last Coors Light when the kids and their mom were at Grandma's house all day:


    I just found out it was approved for Season 3.

    Hopefully we get more Johnny Lawrence and less Robby Keene

    I watched this back in 2017. It was good. I never saw the original one from 1973.

    I checked it out because Rami Malek was in it and he did a good job playing the part.

    Wrongfully convicted for murder, Henri Charriere forms an unlikely relationship with fellow inmate and quirky convicted counterfeiter Louis Dega, in an attempt to escape from the notorious penal colony on Devil's Island.

    ^^I haven't seen the new one but the original one is definitely worth a watch. Strong performances. I also read the book. My dad is a fan. He has a few of his books. I still have his 'Banco' to read.

    Malek is an interesting actor. I enjoyed the 1st season of Mr Robot. The first two eps of season 2 were a turn off for me and I gave up after that.

    Heard good things about Cobra Kai too, from various people, both here and IRL.

    Weissensee (Netflix) : 2 families and their entanglements between 1980 and 1990 in the DDR (Communist Germany). one family is pro the regime, the other is against it. Since it's on Netflix I guess it's available in the UK and US too w/ English subtitles

    it's low on action but high on family relationships and the way the state police and intel agency (Stasi) worked

    kind of like the celebrated movie 'Das Leben der Anderen' ('The Life of Others')

    1 in 50 people in the DDR worked for the Stasi or was an informant for the Stasi. dayum!
