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.

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.

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.

    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.   
    • Okay, sure, but it almost all cases on the PGA Tour (and competitive golf generally), it's a fellow competitor for those reasons.
