I watched:

BIG MOUTH: The first episode of this new series about school aged boys
with a desire to go to the school dance. Apparently, these boys spend
lots of time thinking about their penises and thinking abut their
friends penises and they spend their time hanging out, having sleepovers
where they secretly ejaculate next to each other. The desire to go to
the school dance is apparently tied to the opportunity to be close to
'real girls'...so that they can rub their pelvis up against that girl
for half a second while dancing and bring about yet another ejaculation.
The truth comes out that the only bullies seem to be themselves,
hormonally challenged jerks that they are; and when they get into the
boys bathroom they really spend their time playing in the toilet and
sharing clothes with each other in odd bonding moments.

WHATEVER WORKS: A 2009 Woody Allen film, this time with Larry David
starring in the Woody Allen role and Evan Rachel Wood in the much
younger woman role. This version of the character had a lot more
sass/bite than most versions and so the comedy actually had some edge to
it. This is one of Woody Allen's better efforts.

ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING: A 2015 'sci-fi' comedy starring Simon Pegg, Kate
Beckinsale, Robin Williams (in his last role), and John Cleese. The
premise here is that space aliens are wandering the galaxy looking for
worthy species to add to their galactic collective. In order to
determine worthiness, they select one being on the planet and give them
the power to do anything. This could have been an intelligent film, but
instead it mostly went for silly humor entirely revolving around the
idea that magical powers will act in ways that continually misinterpret
your actual desires. JUMANJI was sort of similar, but much better.

THE HERO: A 2017 dramedy starring Sam Elliott and Laura Prepon as an
unlikely couple navigating the Hollywood scene. Sam Elliott plays an
aging film star who's best days are behind him. Kristen Ritter plays
his daughter who is not on screen enough. More than anything, this was
a slow, depressing film about aging.

ALL THESE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS: A 2016 Polish film about guys who want to
go to the dance. There was no plot and there was no script. The first
20 minutes of this film were simply filled with scenes of people hanging
out at boring dance parties. This was more documentary than anything
else and at the 20 minute mark I shut it off because these people's
lives offered up nothing of entertainment value.

What did you watch?
Once Upon a Time - "Hyperion Heights" - The series gets rebooted with a
now adult Henry being contacted by the daughter he forgot he has. She
tells him he and his fairy tale friends are under a curse and that her
mother is Cinderella (they establish early on that there are multiple
versions of fairy tale characters, so this is a new version of
Cinderella.) The big bad this season is Cinderella's Wicked Step Mother
who in an interesting twist claims to be anti-magic, although she's
clearly open to using it. We see many familiar faces, but thanks to the
curse in new roles. I was underwhelmed by the start of this new season.
It doesn't help that this is a total rehash of what's already come
before. Hopefully it gets a lot better.


Gotham - "They Who Hide Behind Masks" - Already covered.


Blade Runner 2049 (theatrical) - Set 30 years after the first Blade
Runner, Ryan Gosling stars as "K" a Blade Runner who is tasked by his
boss (Robin Wright) with tracking down a "Skin Job" that could "break
the world." However, the joker (Jared Leto) who runs a company that
makes replicants also wants this particular "skin job," so he sends his
loyal but murderous assistant (Sylvia Hoeks) to bring it back. I'm
trying to be intentionally vague about what happens in the movie since
it's best to just go in without knowing too much and let the movie wash
over you. It beautiful film that more than lives up to the rave
reviews, and is better than the original IMO. If at all possible, see
it in IMAX.

Serious question: How the Hell is Ryan Gosling a big enough deal to
have billing above Harrison Ford ... in a Blade Runner movie?? It makes
me thing Ford is just going to be a cameo.

Glorified cameo. During his investigation Gosling learns he needs to
find Ford. He doesn't track him down until the end of the movie. Once
Ford finally shows up, he's in almost every scene but it takes over 2
hours to get to that point.

Oh, I've told this before.

Short version: they built an IMAX walking distance from my office. Biz
partner and I walked over, looking for places to have lunch, saw IMAX.
Had nice lobby, lots of glass, maybe a dozen and a half people waiting
for whatever the next show was, short subject. We went to the box
office and asked the pretty girl for tickets. She takes off on us about
how we can't just walk up and expect to buy tickets! This is like a
play or a concert - you have to buy tickets in advance. She'd be happy
to sell us tickets for the next day. But not for this show. So 15
people got up and went in to a mostly empty theater while we watched in
amazement from the wrong side of the glass because they refused to take
our money. And we left and never went back.

It's gone now.

Oh, I've told this before.
Short version: they built an IMAX walking distance from my office. Biz
partner and I walked over, looking for places to have lunch, saw IMAX.
Had nice lobby, lots of glass, maybe a dozen and a half people waiting
for whatever the next show was, short subject. We went to the box
office and asked the pretty girl for tickets. She takes off on us about
how we can't just walk up and expect to buy tickets! This is like a
play or a concert - you have to buy tickets in advance. She'd be happy
to sell us tickets for the next day. But not for this show. So 15
people got up and went in to a mostly empty theater while we watched in
amazement from the wrong side of the glass because they refused to take
our money. And we left and never went back.
It's gone now.
That is just so absurd. Even theaters with reserved seating let you
show up right before the show starts and buy seats. And what play or
concert doesn't sell tickets the day of the event if they're not sold
out? Whoever was running that place *clearly* didn't know what they
were doing.

Blade Runner 2049 (theatrical) - Set 30 years after the first Blade
Runner, Ryan Gosling stars as "K" a Blade Runner who is tasked by his
boss (Robin Wright) with tracking down a "Skin Job" that could "break
the world." However, the joker (Jared Leto) who runs a company that
makes replicants also wants this particular "skin job," so he sends his
loyal but murderous assistant (Sylvia Hoeks) to bring it back. I'm
trying to be intentionally vague about what happens in the movie since
it's best to just go in without knowing too much and let the movie wash
over you. It beautiful film that more than lives up to the rave
reviews, and is better than the original IMO. If at all possible, see
it in IMAX.
Serious question: How the Hell is Ryan Gosling a big enough deal to
have billing above Harrison Ford ... in a Blade Runner movie?? It makes
me thing Ford is just going to be a cameo.
Glorified cameo. During his investigation Gosling learns he needs to
find Ford. He doesn't track him down until the end of the movie.
Once
Ford finally shows up, he's in almost every scene but it takes over 2
hours to get to that point.
Thanks. That's what I figured. I'll wait for the torrent. :D
That's the exact opposite of see it in IMAX! You might as well watch it
on your phone. :-/

Yep. I have no idea if management was that deluded or the girl had had
a breakdown or what.

It ranks up there with the hot dog stand that was low on change, so
they'd only accept exact change, because ... they didn't want to run out
of change. So they just turned people away.

What did you watch?
Once Upon a Time - "Hyperion Heights" - The series gets rebooted with a
now adult Henry being contacted by the daughter he forgot he has. She
tells him he and his fairy tale friends are under a curse and that her
mother is Cinderella (they establish early on that there are multiple
versions of fairy tale characters, so this is a new version of
Cinderella.) The big bad this season is Cinderella's Wicked Step Mother
who in an interesting twist claims to be anti-magic, although she's
clearly open to using it. We see many familiar faces, but thanks to the
curse in new roles. I was underwhelmed by the start of this new season.
It doesn't help that this is a total rehash of what's already come
before. Hopefully it gets a lot better.
I saw a little because it came on after Inhumans and I left it running
in the background. It would half to get a lot lot lot better. I barely
recognized Fiona.

The Netflix has been insisting for some time now that I watch IDO - I
think that's the name, they never write it in a readable font - which
turns out to be some typical anime crap with women with squeaky voices
and robots and terrible animation. I let a couple minutes of it run and
stopped it and gave it the lowest possible rating, so maybe they'll stop
trying to ram it down my throat, but more likely they'll try and force
more on me.

Marvel Inhumans - sigh, I continue to *so* want to like this show, but
they aren't making it any easier. I wish they'd let sleeping Lockjaw
lie ... if they kill him because their FX team isn't up to the task, I'm
out in a heartbeat. So Medusa can read English. And handle a standard
issue Earth gun. And has apparently been watching cop shows. And found
a really nice house that's not secured in any way, shape, or form.
Finally Crystal zaps some people, but still not Max ... somebody just
kill Max so we can move on? Please? At first I liked the big criminal
befriending Black Bolt (please, Medusa, start referring to him by his
real name, Blackagar Boltagon, instead of his code name? Or just, you
know, "Bolt"? Please?) until it became thematic - all authority is evil
and all criminals are warm and fuzzy and helpful. That's not gonna get
annoying anytime soon, is it? Holy Shit, Gorgon's friends came to play!
And *not* on the beach where they were supposed to. Triton is not only
still pining for the fiords, they've apparently forgotten him
completely. But it felt like they could have done all this in one act,
or maybe even a "previously on"

I don't know what I caught the last minute of that ran before THE GOOD
PLACE, but it was unbelievably awful.

Just ran through it, since I didn't remember this one at all. Good
God. It's one of the later ones with the chorus singing the Supercar
theme. Never liked that.

Cool bit: Mike pushes Supercar to 4000 mph in order to snag a falling
balloon with Beaker and Jimmy in it.

I'm not sure what the real story is for THE MINDY PROJECT, but it was
something along the lines of 'we needed a set, cheap, so we just filmed
on theirs'.

In honour of Halloween coming up, I recommend School LIVE!
http://www.crunchyroll.com/school-live
There is a great twist towards the end of season 1, but then it
maintains a great story and minor twists to keep it interesting.

The Orville (recorded) - "Pria". Covered well by others. I also didn't
care for the revelation of what Charlize Theron was really up to/the
resolution to the episode's story. However, this episode seemed to do a
better job of balancing the humor and the Skiffy - I especially liked
Isaac's "prank" on Gordon. I did also enjoy the fact that dummy Capt.
Ed is no "Kirk" when it comes to women... ;)

I Am Frankie (Nick) - "I Am ... A Sitting Duck", the "finale". I
expected them to screw this up, but they actually did a pretty good job
with this. I did not expect the return of "Eliza" - who is basically an
"EVOL!!1!" version of Frankie - nor did I anticipate her taking
Frankie's "place". (Sidenote: If this is renewed, I wonder if they are
ever going to follow up on the "D"-version android that escaped early
on in the season...) Now I'm kind of hoping this one gets renewed to
see where they take the "Eliza" storyline...

Once Upon a Time - There's nothing really to recommend season #7, based
on what they saw here. Yes, Garbielle Anwar and Adalaide Kane are mild
plusses, but I don't care for the new leads (when I look at Dania
Ramirez, I can only see "Devious Maids"... :/ ), and I don't like the
changes they've made to Regina or Hook or the overall set up for the
season (*another* g.d. "curse"?!!... [roll] )

Inhumans - "Divide and Conquer" (ep. #3). This felt like a pretty big
step down from episode #2. The only good part in this episode was the
fight/square-off between Gorgon and Auran. Also, Crystal finally
manages to get to Earth. Let's hope the next episode is better... :|

Recorded for later: A Mother's Crime (off LMN).

than anything Kirk took a stab at.

Yup.

They didn't quite resolve whether Ed was going to remember Pria, since
blowing up the wormhole from his end would prevent the whole
time-travel artifact-stealing thing from happening in the first place.

Good episode.

Well, they're past that point in their timeline, to they'd have to
return to it, or time itself would have to have a habit of
self-correcting, which would mean that our gang would be taken out by
something *else* in the near future.

Did someone say that Fox has been running these out of production order?
If so, it would be interesting to see if things were shifted in order to
move some of the funnier outings forward or if it was to move some of
the more serious ones forward.

How can Young Sheldon be a winner or evn in contention if it only
aired 1 episode?

I agree that the verdict is still out on it, but airing out of THE BIG
BANG THEORY will keep its ratings up and maybe even leave it as the
second highest rated scripted show on TV.

I hadn't originally planned to sample it, but when it premiered it had
no competition so I watched it. To my surprise I liked it enough to
put it on the sched.

This episode confirmed that not only is Capt. Ed a dummy, but he's as bad with other woman as he is with his ex-wife! ;p

Not really a female ;-) ...and not really much of a buddy system between
her and Kira. By my comment above, I was talking about a 'female buddy
aspect' as in two female characters that are friends and have meaningful
dialog/ screen time as such. THE ORVILLE seems to be putting that kind
of buddy situation in place for Kelly and Alara.

Once Upon a Time - There's nothing really to recommend season #7, based
on what they saw here. Yes, Garbielle Anwar and Adalaide Kane are mild
plusses, but I don't care for the new leads (when I look at Dania
Ramirez, I can only see "Devious Maids"... :/ ), and I don't like the
changes they've made to Regina or Hook or the overall set up for the
season (*another* g.d. "curse"?!!... [roll] )
Definitely undewhelmed with this. Not so much a Reboot as a Recycle...
Once again a kid is pleading with their parent -- who doesn't remember
their kid -- to help with (another) curse. Felt no empathy to any of
the characters. I was bored quite often.

I'll have to see if I stick with it. I suspect maybe not.

Inhumans - "Divide and Conquer" (ep. #3). This felt like a pretty big
step down from episode #2. The only good part in this episode was the
fight/square-off between Gorgon and Auran. Also, Crystal finally
manages to get to Earth. Let's hope the next episode is better... :|
In contrast, I liked this more -- WRT both last week and OUaT.
I began to connect with the characters a bit, and felt the story
was going somewhere.

The Orville (recorded) - "Pria". Covered well by others. I also didn't
care for the revelation of what Charlize Theron was really up to/the
resolution to the episode's story. However, this episode seemed to do a
better job of balancing the humor and the Skiffy - I especially liked
Isaac's "prank" on Gordon. I did also enjoy the fact that dummy Capt.
Ed is no "Kirk" when it comes to women... ;)
Meant to comment that I thought this ep continued the string of good
ones. You're right that the ending was totally illogical -- if Pria
no longer existed they would have been destroyed by the Dark Matter
after all -- but AFAIC time travel never makes sense, and I can still
enjoy such plots. And they showed it wasn't Star Trek! Dark Matter
was not a 'thing' back then (:-))

Good point. Pria herself caused the crisis that would have destroyed
the Orville, had she not been there to steer the ship out of the
dark-matter thingie. With Pria never having been back in time, the
Orville would have remained on patrol and safe. Good catch.

I still want to know if Cap'n Ed and the others remember her. The
standard looney-tune rule of time travel is that if you cause history
to change, you remember both timelines.

On Friday October 6 I watched:

A Netflix binge of THE GOOD PLACE.
I like both Kristen Bell as Eleanor Shellstrop

THE EXORCIST / 2x02 / Safe as Houses

[Tomas and Marcus attempt to escape the custody of Cindy's enraged
family, while simultaneously trying to finish her exorcism. Rose
conducts her inspection of Andy Kim's household and is concerned about
Caleb's mental state. Meanwhile, Andy's neighbors offer to teach the
children farming skills, but there's something sinister behind their
intentions. Additionally, Verity may be hiding something from the rest
of her foster family. Then, Father Bennett tries to warn the Office of
Exorcism of a new threat, but finds his attempts railroaded by menacing
forces.]

"There's something in the woods."

Tomas and Marcus save Cindy and expel her little problem, but that still
leaves behind a string of dead bodies that Cindy has left lying around
the hospital where she was taken. Even with a sheriff for a husband,
it's gonna take some work to keep things hushed up. Elsewhere, the
Vatican has been compromised and an apparent purge of those with
expertise in exorcism is ongoing. Fr. Bennett calls Marcus to give him
and Tomas a heads-up; he tells them to disable and ditch their phones
and get the heck away from wherever they are. This results in our duo
heading towards Seattle and someone Marcus knows there, which also just
happens to be where Andy and his house of foster kids continues to show
signs of needing some outside assistance that only they can provide.
Raise your hand if you can see where this is headed. :) Meanwhile, Rose
continues her assessment of Andy et al and has not recommended any
drastic action. Yet.

Grade: B+

MARVEL'S INHUMANS / 1x03 / Divide and Conquer

[The Inhumans desperately search for each other in the wake of Maximus'
coup; They must learn who they can trust on Earth.]

Desmond Hume of LOST fame is here! On, um, a show that's starting out
nowhere near as strongly as that one did. Oh, well. In this one, our
heroes are *all* on Earth by the end of things, including Lockjaw.
They're still not together, but each one's circumstances are improved
compared to where they each were at the start of the episode. The show
is still something of a disappointment, but this one wasn't quite as bad
as the first two. Which means that I'll be checking out at least one
more outing. It's entirely possible that I'm giving this one some extra
slack after experiencing how much worse the pilot of GHOST WARS was in
comparison.

Grade: C+

Of course the plan, if there is one, is idiotic. Max wants to invade
Earth. Apparently one Inhuman at a time. So *do* it. Who cares where
the Royal Family is? You should have left them locked up on the Moon to
start with.

Good point. Move the invading INHUMANS down to Earth and leave the
royal family behind to continue to rule the moon via slave labor. The
only entity that needed to be brought to Earth was LockJaw...who would
then need to be tranq'ed so that he could not go back and get the royal
family.

That's much easier to understand than a person born into an English-

Meanwhile, is there any reason to believe that the superior moon people

slave labor mining moon people that went to Earth, these are the 'royal'
types who don't really have anything else to do other than learn

[The Inhumans desperately search for each other in the wake of Maximus'
coup; They must learn who they can trust on Earth.]
Desmond Hume of LOST fame is here! On, um, a show that's starting out
nowhere near as strongly as that one did. Oh, well. In this one, our
heroes are *all* on Earth by the end of things, including Lockjaw.
I'm trying to figure out how they all speak and read fluent English
immediately upon arrival.
I hate when people ask why the chars in a show speak the same language
as its viewers!
I didn't ask why the characters don't speak the same language as the
viewers. I asked why the characters *do* speak the same language as each
other, since one group has grown up on the moon and the other lives in
Hawaii.
Yeah. Since when do they speak English on Hawai'i?
Hawaii is nothing like England, so why wouldn't they speak English in
Hawaii?
Meanwhile, is there any reason to believe that the superior moon people
cannot speak multiple Earth languages? After all, these aren't the
slave labor mining moon people that went to Earth, these are the 'royal'
types who don't really have anything else to do other than learn
languages and master creative arts and style their hair and such.
But why wouldn't they speak their own language while on the moon amongst
themselves?
Instead they walk around speaking an earth language for some bizarre
reason.
What makes you think the Inhumans have their own language?
Because of their attitude of superiority toward the lesser humans.

LOL, well, there's that, but I don't recall them speaking anything but
English in the Fantastic Four.

We don't have enough information. We don't know when they moved to the
Moon or from where. Max says he's never been to Earth, but that's our
only clew. The bounty hunter speaks English, but we have no idea how
royal she is, or if they speak anything but colloquial 21st Century
English on the Moon as a matter of course.

We did get flashbacks to when the Royal boys were kids and the parents
got killed by the elder son. That was on the moon, I think the same set
as they were living in now, so they have been there awhile and speaking
English.

Yes, I assume they've been on the Moon since Max was born (although all
we really know is 'not Earth' and Max may not exactly be a reliable
narrator) but we don't know if they moved there a week or a thousand
yarans before. And we don't know if they're speaking English on Da
Moon. Just because we're hearing it ... :)

They should all probably just stay on the moon, since dialogue on the
moon is only one-sixth as stupid as it is on Earth.

Well, we know they're speaking the same language as the inhabitants of
Hawaii, so whatever they're speaking, it's identical to what's being
spoken in a state of the USA, and that generally tends to be English.

And so far, there's been no mention of any kind 'universal translator'
with Inhumans. Why would there be? The ones who are on earth now weren't
planning on going there. Hell, given their attitude toward humans, earth
is the last place they'd want to be, or its languages the last thing
they'd spend time learning. They fled for their lives at a moment's
notice, so they couldn't have brought any translation tech with them.
