  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.

I initially thought this was a movie, given the lead cast, I guess it's basically a long movie broken up into 6 acts or how many ever episodes. Seems like the content creators are gong through all the scammy companies - Theranos, uhhhh, I forget, there are few of them I'm sure. Wework is still operating though. I know people who work there, but man, I hate that company.

5 episodes into Reacher. Not a bad show. So far I would like to get another season to see how it progresses. It kept my interest.

We binged Reacher this weekend.   It peaked our interest from the first episode and didn't disappoint thru the last one.   The humor, action and interaction of the characters was very good.

From the land of perpetual cloudiness.   I'm Denny

Finished La Fortuna (AMC+), even though the series hasn't technically completely aired/streamed in the US yet. Great mix of pirates, history, drama. Stanley Tucci, Clarke Peters (The Wire) and some good Spanish actors I've never heard of.

Also finished Station Eleven (HBO Max). This and Anna helped me process the pandemic a little better.

FInished French miniseries, L'effondrement/The Collapse. 8 episodes, 15 minute episodes, riveting interrelated vignettes about what happens after society melts down. It's not available in the US, found a version that slipped the copyright protection on Vimeo. Unfortunately no subtitles, but I have subtitle files, ask and ye shall receive. Third "pandemic" series in as many months, lol. This is exactly what I wanted World War Z to be, bigger budget.

Severance was so good. Going through Severance withdrawal.

Slow Horses started slowly but last episode was very good.

Pachinko started strong, only watched 3 episodes, heard the fourth wasn't as good.

Picard is fun. A major actor reveal in episode 7.

    • Day 1: Aftermath of wife's company end of year celebration on Tuesday put my plans on hold, so trying again, again, again or whatever. Worked on backswing - focus on width and depth, with a little bit of toe-up feel. Did this indoors because it's starting to rain, used mirror vision to check on things (need to do this more often/always).
    • Played the back nine again at Minnesott with my son and my friend who’s working back from nerve injury to his right hand (numb little and ring fingers).  He’s contemplating larger grips so we brought a couple irons - one midsize, one jumbo.  He hit a few with each and said he could feel the clubs in his right hand better.  He’s going to work with a fitter about the best grip for him.  How did the round go?  It was a bogie kind of day - one dbl, two pars and six bogies for a 44.  Hit 5 of 7 fairways, the drives were finding the short grass today.  Not quite the same on the par threes, caught the tee shot with heavy 9i on 12 to nearly pin high, but right of the green. Pitched the 58 over the bunker as the pin was tucked tight.  Two putted for bogie.  The other three, 14 was a 6i flushed that landed ball at the back of the green and bounced just off.  Bumped the 50 to get the ball close - not close enough for a one putt par, but rather a two putt bogie.  While it wasn’t the up and down saves for par, felt the overall game was consistent today.  Best highlight was that there were only 18 putts - no three putts today!  
    • Day 23 (08 Dec 22) - Played the back nine today at Minnesott with my son and my friend who recently moved back to the area.  Drill work is paying off as I continue to see more consistent shot results. 
    • I didn't know the gaps were going to be that big when I ordered the kit. The installation instructions as far as mounting them were pretty lacking, I'll do some more research and see if I can find how others have mounted it but I'm not sure how much closer I can get them to each other based on how big the brackets are and how far the brackets/motors stick out from the ends of each tube.   Edit: I did just realize I could make the side screens roll up on the insides rather than the outside like they do now which should help close the gaps some
    • He didn't want to spoil it for me because I hadn't listened to that one yet. It's actually a good pod cast from the few that I have heard so far. Lots of good "inside" information about players and tours etc...
