The Addams Family: about done. Enjoyed it all but it is recycled jokes. Two years was probably about right, unless they let them leave the house.

Slow Horses: Spies you want to slap for being that person but it's grown on me.

Alaska Daily: as it progress, they seem to realize scene after scene of the main being unlikable doesn't work. It's turning into a good journalism show.

Yellowstone: train wreck appealing to those that wish they were as far as I can figure. No judgment, lol, I'm still watching.

Ghosts: guilty pleasure.

Under the Banner of Heaven and Invincibles: watched the first episodes 2-3 times. I probably ought to give up on them as not my cup.
I've enjoyed Alaska Daily. Yellowstone does not get better as it progresses through the seasons.

Corner Gas. Six seasons starting 2004. Canadians seem to live sitcoms that take place at convenience stores. Followed by Corner Gas the Movie and Corner Gas the animated series. First episodes can be a "why was this popular" but as it digs away at the intrenched cynicism and expectation of foul language, cowgirl and blood, yeah, I snorted at a few jokes. 7 eps in, I'll see...

Corner Gas is laugh out loud funny.

I'm learning. When it's on it's on. When it's bad it's still on. I can do with a little less Dad though.

Got tired of football. Started watching for the 3rd time this Handmaiden thing. Gave it all up and went back to something entertaining. All I want to do is sit and smile and snack until whatever has my system screwed up gets over itself. Football and dystopian wasn't doing it.

Wednesday - Surprisingly entertaining. I like the context of a New England school for the most macabre individuals among us, and the connection to one of my favorite writers, Edgar Allen Poe. Within the context developed, it all makes sense. I am relieved to know that the star is over twenty as there is something very attractive about her. I definitely would have dated her in high school. Catherine Zeta-Jone's Morticia is pretty hot too.

I wanted to like it, and I’m a big Jenna Ortega fan, but I quit in the second episode.

it's a lot better once Gomez and Morticia disapear. The whole Addams show turns on their chemistry. Be design directing or actor choices, those two had worse than none. Might be worth powering through.

Finished the original Addams Family.I became interested in knowing more about the cast. I know most are familiar that Jackie Coogan was "the kid" with Charlie Chaplin and that his money was stolen. Beyond that even, he had a fascinating life, hung out and married some hotties, WWII over the hump... His life would make a good movie.

This dance is some viral sensation on social media and I kind of don't get it. Ortega basically winged it by putting together famous dance bits from different shows/movies like Pulp Fiction including the original Adams Family. Actually that original Wednesday dance with Lurch is a classic in TV

Let me see if I can explain; sultry eyes, direct and piercing, full pouty lips begging/daring to be kissed and raven black hair, dancing with abandon and yet, within the macabre motif. She displays a combination of innocence and menace. The broken neck bit really got me.

If that doesn't explain the attraction, I can't help you.

You talking about Lurch or Wednesday? Either way, a little creepy even for the internet.

Time and the knife have not been kind to Zeta-Jones.

Odyssey 5: pilot. intriguing. How did I miss this one? Must have been on cable. I keep forgetting that while the streaming services recycle anything with less than a 7 imdb, Crackle has some pretty good stuff. After this Taboo.

I don't know. She looks 53 to me, a very healthy and fit 53. 53 is not that old these days. She is no longer the ingénue she once was, but, she is still hot and I wouldn't pass her up.

Watched a movie called Compliance on Amazon Prime last night. Most frustrating movie I’ve ever seen. I kept thinking I should turn this off the actors and premise were so ridiculous. Turns out at the end it was based on actual events.
