Finished Season 3 of Stranger Things. Episode 5 to 8 were actually pretty decent. The finale was even legitimately good, bar one baffling segment. But this is not the type of quality the first season displayed anymore. The mystery aspect that accounted for the initial charm of the show seems to have gotten the shaft and now everything's obvious and in your face. And I'll stick with my initial opinion: This season relies way too much on shallow nostalgia. Whilst the first season utilized recognizable staples of its time as just something the characters were familiar with and used or enjoyed in their everyday lives that were cleverly integrated and even served storytelling purposes (like "Should I Stay Or Should I Go" signaling the bond between the Buyers brothers), popculture references and blatant product placement are now thrown around willy-nilly. That sucks. This show has turned into a cartoon. And there were so many plot points that went nowhere this season. There was little in the way of suspense or urgency this season, especially in the earlier episodes. And even the show's signature moments with emotional depth only really appear in the later few. They were there, but not as abundant as in the seasons prior to this one. Verdict: Has its moments here and there, but it's a far cry from what initially made the show so appealing. Disappointed.

A couple I tried and bailed on

Stranger Things 3. More like extremely familiar and boring things. Teen romance and very bad 80's music. Only made it thru episode 1 and not going back for more.

City on a Hill, stale wooden acting and terrible writing, only made it thru half hour of ep 1. Take the worst parts of Hill Street Blues and add the worst parts of the Wire. Almost a parody

Wimbledon on the BBC. Every year it's like you're traveling back in time with McEnroe, Navratilova, Clijsters and Becker and all those other legends still present as commentators.


This year the Women's tournament was great, many surprises and some upcoming youngsters. And Serena will still win the final tomorrow.
Didn't follow the men's tournament so much because the three GOAT's are just too good. But today's semi final Nadal vs Federer was great.

anyone watch Kidding with Jim Carrey

thing reeked of "look how dark and edgy we are"

i love that surreal Gondry touch and JIm Carrey of course.


season 2 might be a tighter package altogether with Jeff Pickles being a more fleshed out character, i look forward to that

Anyway, I started watching Games Of Thrones last night, the first four episodes of the first season. Only 69 episodes to go. Or shall I just skip the entire final season? Yeah I know, I'm late to the party, but I never had HBO, and didn't feel like downloading the episodes illegally. Until last week when I changed the TV subscription package.

don't rule her out yet, she entered the tournament practically untrained due to injuries and she still made it to the Finals. So if she keeps fit she will still win the grand slams.

Well, before Wimbledon in 2014 Federer hadn't made a final in two years, and we all thought it was finally time for the others to overtake him. Then he's won three more Grand Slams since then.

He's old enough that he could be my dad, this is insane.

ooh i see. wow... i remember his battles vs nadal... some ages ago?

i forget when or what (lol) but it was big somehow. i remember that this girl... what is her name... the one that left a note for h8kurdt... had a crush on nadal ha ha ha. in the end federer won. he was... 28 at the time?

so i suppose serena could keep going a while... i like her, so... i hope so.

I’m watching this show CASTLE ROCK on Hulu.

It’s basically like an Agents of Shield for the Steven King “multiverse”

Except it has cussing and is really dark and probably a more well-made show.

Anyway... pretty good stuff. Several actors from series I like (Leftovers, Six Feet Under, American Horror Story, Daredevil), and it has all these little breadcrumbs from all the Stephen King books that take place in Maine (Shawshank, Green Mike, Shining, IT, more that I haven’t read and wouldn’t recognize ... probably Tommyknockers)

Interesting and pretty satisfyingly.
Hope they make a season 2.

Not a big King fan in general (I like about 2 Ĺ of the books of his I’ve read), but this is making me want to explore more.

ALSO...

BIG LITTLE LIES (HBO) is off-book for season 2 and going GREAT

EUPHORIA (HBO) is some KIDS-level disturbing ass shit, but really well done and engaging

HANDMAID’S TALE is still probably the most important show on TV, but I feel like it’s losing the thread a bit in the last episode or two. Hoping it finds it again, because we need that show these days, goddammit.
