I actually did sorta enjoy it, mostly due to stellar acting by Mike Bluth and Linney. Their daughter character was pretty good, too. I probably wouldn't have watched it all the way thru if Ms Ild didn't like it so much...I really do hate crime stories that get major shit wrong, though...maybe that's just me?

Ah, so you agree that Batman and Linney were excellent? Cool. That's really what I was looking for.

anyway, he reads a lot of nonfiction too. me i prefer the fantastic genre in general. i hate reality, but it's the only place where i can get a good steak.

since i just finished marco polo (nude kungfu rules all), it would be good timing to get into another "serious" show. looking more for epic/war shit right now so i have shaka zulu lined up right now but maybe i could skip for a test.

Gotcha gotcha.

Ozark is super serious though. Almost weird to see Bateman in something that is so completely not funny. I think that's why it was gripping for me. You keep kind of thinking he's going to snark off, and make you giggle, but when he does get snarky it's deadly serious, or surrounded by deadly serious shit. Maybe that's a cheap trick from the writing angle, I dunno. But it worked.

Watching 3rd season of Narcos. I like how they use actual footage of the arrests and public shit that happened. Keeps it grounded!

During the hurricane I put seasons 4-7 of Seinfeld on a memory stick and the wife and I binged as Houston drowned. fucking awesome as always.

Mrs. Instigator and I rode it out with power and no flooding. I now live in the house I spent my teen years in, and it was built back when the area was a real far suburb of Houston, so the houses were built on higher ground and all elevated from the street level. The house has never ever flooded and for that I am lucky. My mother's place has roof damage and water damage.
My wife and I drove around when the rain finally stopped (8-10 inches a day for 4 days....) and we could not get more than a mile in any direction due to flood.
horrible. I have had a house flood before (early 2000's) and I know what Bytor is going through.. so demoralizing.

the Houston Police had to set up a makeshift precinct office due to the flooding and my wife read they had no food, water, toiletries, etc for these cops that had been working 20 hour shifts. we picked up 6 pizza pies and some drinks and took it to them. Turns out they had set up the "precinct" in an empty strip center. They were very grateful. One dude almost started crying..

Mom is as OK as can be.

Went back to work yesterday. Normal commutes are double or triple the time. so many major roads and freeways still closed.

good to know!

and now back to our regular programming i guess? ha ha ha

===

watched both THE UNEARTHLY CHILD and THE DALEKS serials of the first season of doctor who with the old man in it.

unearthly child okay, already discussed, esablishes the characters fine.

the one about the daleks was at once exciting and very boring and disappointing. it's 7 episodes, but two of those are just fillers with people (the "thals") gesticulating in some wood/ some cave/getting eaten by monsters/falling into a hole/ like it's some sort of outdoor adventure. sure, it is and outdoor adventure now i guess, but i could skip right to the ending and nothing would be affected (just time saved).

next will be THE EDGE OF DESTRUCTION. which follows chronologically. here's to them having trimmed the fat off it.

so.... yeah... looks like im gonna follow all 3 years of hartnell first ha ha ha ha. there is only one serial missing from the extant ones-- meaning netflix doesn't have the discs for THE WEB PLANET. whence the internet was invented. or something ha ha. yeah. seems out of print/unavailable but was once issued. i'll get there in due time...

have also alerts for THE QUATERMASS EXPERIMENT aka THE CREEPING UNKNOWN which seems unavailable as both stream and disc on my main sources. not about to go hunting for some grainy $250 vhs copy of it so i'll just keep waiting till it pops up

From memory it's one of the more watchable stories from the Hartnell era.

To each their own, I just hope you don't burn out on DW before getting to the actual good stuff.

Dammit, you've mentioned Quartermass before. I've wanted to get into it, but simply haven't because I guess I'm too hung up on other shit.

Also, I feel like I'm not out of the loop with Doctor Who, because you guys are talking about shit I've never seen. So I'm sad.

one disc at a time from netflix will give you the chance to see them. i've been queueing up the discs in chronological order, and can send you the names.

it takes a bit of work to match the list of the serials with the available dvds from netflix, because there are serials missing (that were destroyed) and discs missing (that netflix doesn't have).

usualy 1 disc will contain a serial (or two). i've seen up to 7 episodes in one disc-- they're only 20-some minutes each so the whole story fits. so you can get one disc, watch a whole serial, return it, get the next for the following weekend, etc. takes some patience i guess ha ha ha, this archaeology business.

fyi i don't think demonyo has seen all the hartnells, as they're from before his time. this is just me being a maniac.

i don't think i will. at worst i might skip a dull episode or clear emails while things play.

at the end of the daleks, by the way (the dead planet, the thals, etc) the doctor launches on a little rant about "truth" and i felt a resonance with the early star treks. different characters sure but they both embody a certain idealism which while it may not be found on earth could be found in space-- or in a more advanced alien.

this was of course hilarious and ironic because the doctor earlier had lied to his companions about some shit. this first doctor was hilariously imperfect on the ethics department. very selfish too ha ha ha. but then he goes on about "truth" ha ha ha. wish i had memorized his lines cuz now i can't remember them. agh!

quatermass and the pit was available last year on amazon i think, and i missed it. but i want to get the first movie first. what is hammer film? should i google? hmmmmm [edit: the production company that made them? oh vs the contemporary one? i dont want the contemporary one/remake]

nice lady, that one. my favorite 60s sf star of course is raquel welch on fantastic voyage. which i can't find anywhere! gaaaaahhhhhh!

original dr who's "the edge of destruction" was fun and short and to the point (2 episodes). which was nice. first time i think we hear of the tardis having an intelligence of its own.

the doctor is such a stupid jerk though, ha ha ha! the humans are better.

next in line would be the lost marco polo episodes ("the roof of the world")

for obvious reason i'll be skipping to the next serial, "the keys of marinus". looks longer.

btw seems as if many of these are on youtube?
