Started Season 2 now. Actually took me three tries to finish the first one. I don't know, something about the topical content and the hectic pacing made it a bit of a hard watch at first. I did enjoy it in the end though. Not your run-off-the-mill comic adaptation. I really dig the set-pieces and the psychedelic aatmosphere.

i hate that they removed tom keene from bloomberg surveillance on tv

he's a funny old man with an erudite mind and his banter with bramo and ferro was great

im listening to him now on the surveillance podcast, which you can actually watch on youtube. and he's also great there but now missing the other side of the team

i saw the first episode of fallout. it was funny and entertaining and pretty well made. i can't compare it to the game because i've never played. i hope it's better than the halo series which has good spectacle but predictable boring plot (and i've never played that game either)

My brother has played the games and LOVES the show! He said it was pretty accurate to the games.

I recently finished Buffy, first time watching it through. Some things didn't age well at all, as was to be expected. And the whole Joss Whedon situation was hanging over the viewing experience like a cloud. But overall, I have to conclude that it was a damn fine piece of television for its time. Funny, likeable characters (with a few exceptions) and strong interpersonal relationships. Nice time capsule in terms of music and style too. And gutsy artistic decisions for network television. I get the hype.


Meanwhile, I've started watching what someone once aptly described as a Vampire-shaped plank of wood. Boreanaz can be good when he's allowed to be a bit more jovial. But that brooding stoical vamp routine is very dull. His more comedic notions and Charisma Carpenter reprising her redeemed clique queen persona Cordelia are doing a lot of the heavy lifting in this early stretch of the first Season. But it supposedly gets more interesting. I'll give it a shot.

as for the scandals, i have tired of our current era's pharisaic predilections and prefer to ignore them because they taint the experience, and i'm sure that in the end everyone involved is guilty, lol, not just the accused. guilty as sin as the expression goes (or "every cop is a criminal," as mick jagger sang)

anyway, where buffy was originally a show about highschool and the difficulties of adolescence (and the college bit was somewhat of an extension), angel was about work and adulthood. not all seasons and characters and storylines were great either, same as buffy, but overall i enjoyed it tons, and i would watch it all yet again, why not. i still laugh at some memories of it but i'm not going to spoil them for you by revealing them prematurely. but please do come back afterwards and comment

The reception I've heard from it is "good but not great, and the more you know about the games the less you'll enjoy it". The games are obviously getting a whole bunch of new attention from it, including me trying to play through an RPG that came out before I was born - need to get a better laptop so that I can live up to my transgendered nature and play New Vegas.

In the least surprising news ever, I'm finally succumbing to being a weeb and watching Dungeon Meshi (or, as the official but stupid English title is, Delicious in Dungeon). An adaptation of the recently-concluded manga by Ryoko Kui, it's being released on Netflix one episode a week - and I figured that I may as well interact with the media that my profile picture is from.
The plot setup's a very traditional fantasy premise - our party of adventurers (primarily based around Laois, Marcille, and Chilchuck) attack the Red Dragon at the core of the dungeon before it defeats them, taking party member Falin (Laois' younger sister and Marcille's former classmate and lesbian crush) with it. Exiled back to the entrance of the dungeon, and with their colleagues Shuro and Namari leaving the party (both reappear later), they set off again to rescue Falin with a slightly left-field plan - rather than spending money they don't have on food and having to slug it around, why not live off eating the monsters in the dungeon? Fortunately they run into Senshi, who roams around the dungeon for his life, and they set off on many wacky adventures. It gets weird, and I'm really enjoying it.

i ended up reading about the original game (reminds of "wasteland", which i've played) and from what i could gleam it seems that the plot and characterization of the show are more interesting than the game itself. which is probably as it should be? "inspired by" sounds more like... anyway, walton goggins great as usual hahahahaha

with the premier league ending this weekend and champions league final on june 1st (goodbye peacock and paramount+) im gonna need some summer tv subscriptions.... not sure what to get yet

maybe a bit of hulu and netflix to catch up with what i've missed... or free apple tv if i replace a device
