The second season of Mythic Quest is not as good as the first. Just less geek stuff, less humor, more serious stuff. It was still a good show, but I didn't enjoy it as much as season 1 because it's not what I wanted from the show.

Meh.

BritBox is now offering Blakes 7 since August 13th.  For anyone who doesn't know, this was a BBC production in the late 70s that tried to jump on the Star Wars bandwagon.  It was low budget, but well written and is considered a cult classic.   It mainly made its way on public TV stations years ago but has been hard to find in NA unless you eBay purchase another region DVD and use that.   I've been waiting a long time to be able to watch it.

The plot revolves around a band of morally ambiguous people who are fighting the Terran Federation, an oppressive government in Earth's future.  It's a dystopian future and many of the characters are not truly heroic but instead are challenged to do the right thing.  The special effects are ambitious although look very dated by today's standards.  Main character immunity doesn't last throughout the 4 seasons, and actors came and left, so they were willing to take some risks.

  I watched a few random episodes of this when I was very young, and quite liked it.  I may sign up for the 30 day trial to check it out.  I tried watching Space 1999 a while back, but couldn't get into it.

  I've exhausted the four seasons of Vikings available on Netflix lately.  I enjoy it, but not enough to subscribe to another service just to watch the final two.

Tried an episode of the new Fantasy Island, but it didn't click for me. No KHAANNNNN!!!

Wasn't crazy about the Ted Lasso Christmas episode, but love Roy Kent, he's kind of one note, but he's the best part of the show, at least for me. Wondering where they're going with the sports psychologist.

Reservation Dogs is so good, if you like Atlanta, you'll probably like RD.

Of the new stuff (and not even in my top 10 of all time...)...

Outer Banks. It's so bad, it's good.

Okay, that's just good timing.  I logged in to make sure I report today's 5 minute and I'm about to sit down to watch the first episode of Ted Lasso, a show I'm told I'd like.  I'll report back about it after I've seen a few in the coming days.

Me too, I just wish the episodes were a little bit longer.

I’ve not seen What If.  Loki was odd and only Ok.  I really liked Falcon & the Winter Soldier.  Tried watching WandaVision and could not get through the 1st episode.  I hear WV gets better but I’ve not been motivated to watch more.

A very crazy choice, I watched a kid’s series called The Mysterious Benedict Society on Disney+.  It is a kids show but has some subtle humor and I found it a relaxing watch.

I didn't know Jason Sudeikis came up with the idea for Ted Lasso like a decade ago:

Some of the bits from that video are in the show. Including Beard.

I knew it was based on a commercial but never seen it, for some reason, this is going around. I knew I could have just looked it up but never bothered.

I also learned that Roy Kent is based on a real player Roy Keen or something like that.

The bit in one of episodes with Wembley stadium and old Wembley stadium and Coach Lasso not knowing the pitch was different sizes was funny.

It's also on brand that the fold up bicycle in the show is made by Brompton - I would guess people might call it the Apple of fold up bikes.

Schmigadoon! started out pretty good, middle was good too, but faltered at the end.

Netflix's second season of Into the Night was just as propulsive as the first season.

Reservation Dogs continues to be so good.

Undecided on HBO's Scenes From a Marriage.
