  Watched the first three episodes of The Wheel Of Time on Amazon Prime.  It's not Game Of Thrones by any means, but it doesn't have to be.  The pilot is okay, but the characters seem to shine a little more in episodes two and three.

  As a sidebar, I had a lot getting through even a couple of the WOT books.  I found Martins' novels a better read, and that's a scary sentence to type out.

  Currently watching the Cowboy Bebop remake on Netflix.  John Cho doesn't scream Spike to me in any way shape or form, but the casting for Jet Black is fantastic.

Wheel of Time ended with a dud. Whole season felt rushed. Character development not great.

Foundation was a little better, but a hard book to adapt.

Invasion cost Apple 200 million dollars. It looked expensive, but really held back with the aliens. And also Jurassic Park actor was gone in an instant.

Anna (Sky Italia/AMC+) was a very good pandemic show, everyone dies after puberty, so it's kind of Lord of the Flies, some tough scenes to stomach, but worth the watch.

Halfway through Station Eleven and it's also a good pandemic show although not as "uplifting" as the reviews made it out to be.

Binged half of nordic noir detective show Wisting because Carrie Anne Moss - Trinity - was in it and it's pretty good but standard scandi-noir.

Cowboy Bebop got panned, but enjoying more than most halfway through.

Probably gonna rewatch Band of Brothers, again, because almost finished listening to official podcast. Looking forward to Masters of the Air next year hopefully.

Succession of course, was, well, Succession. Great score, third season, composer is definitely not dialing it in. Gotta get the algo guys to check my code!

Oddly enough, I was just saying to a friend I'm long overdue on a rewatch of that.  I did burn through Carnivale over the x-mas season.  I saw a trailer for a third season and just about stroked out until I realized it was a fanmade version.

I've been enjoying Station Eleven as well.  It's weird, but I like it.

Yellowjackets has been a fun watch so far, although I much prefer the Lord Of The Flies stuff more than the present day storyline.

I tried starting season two of the Witcher, but I struggled to get into it.  I'll give it another shot soon.

Great series.

 

I don't live far from Toccoa where the initial training was. I took my grandson, who is a fan of the military, to the Currahee Museum this past summer. It also had a special meaning for me because I was a paratrooper in the Army.

I'm reading 200 to 250 million was spent on Masters of the Air. Wow. Apple and Amazon pouring money into the tv shows.

I confess I haven't read all 117 pages so it might have been mentioned previously and I'll probably lose my status as most macho guy on the golf course but my wife and I like the Netflix show "Queer Eye". After all the weirdness and violence - particularly in the last few years - it's kind of refreshing watching people be nice to each other. I will admit, though, that there's enough sugar there to send a healthy person into prediabetic mode.

    • Shows us the difference between pros and amateurs.  I doubt most of us would ever hit the fairway, unless it was a lucky strike
    • I had a set of Dunlop irons which were a rip on Ernie's clubs at the time (late 90's, early 2000's.  I am currently gaming a set of TaylorMade RAC OS irons with a couple of hybrids and a Lob Wedge. Unless you have enough clubhead speed, don't even think about a 3 iron.  I used to be able to hit my 3 iron perfectly before.  Nowadays, I probably get good contact twice or thrice in ten shots.  I have decided to pick up a 2 and 4 hybrid and dropped the 3 and 4 irons.  I might even drop the 5 iron if consistent contact is a problem.  Part of that is because my clubhead speed has dropped as I aged, and a lack of practice doesn't help my game
    • Couple of bad holes but overall fairly happy.  Lost my scorecard so relying on my memory for the scores. Par, bogey x 2, double, par, triple, par x 2, bogey, par x 2, bogey, par, bogey, par, bogey, double, bogey
