Re-watching 'Agent Carter'. Great show with sharp dialogue, unfortunately nobody else watched it. Hayley Atwell deserves to be in something else. The rest of the cast is good, too.

Jared, Ido want to watch the Anthony Bourdain film, just haven't yet. He was a complicated man. What I appreciated about him was his enthusiasm about everywhere he went and the people he met. He was respectful of other cultures, their people and their food.
No nearly enough respect in this world.

So I finished watching Season 3 of Start Trek Discovery over at Paramount Plus. First Episode of Season 4 Premieres tomorrow so my timing is good.

Earlier I was upset that the first few episodes of Season three were truely uninspired and a bore to watch. But I stuck with it and fortunatly things got back to being good again.

You don't really have to be a Star Trek fan to enjoy Discovery. If you like Sci-fy you should like this series. Although there are things about Star Trek Discovery I like and plenty that I don't.

NO SPOILERS!!

I would love to go into why I really enjoy this series and what I don't like but I am not going to give away any plot in case anyone wants to start watching the Series.

The show follows the adventures of the Star Ship Discovery and crew on their adventures. The series does follow the ideals of the original Start Trek in that in the future all are welcome and equal. Interesting mix of crew members and officers Departure from Trek norm in that the central character as the series starts is not from the Captians point of view but instead we follow our central character of Michael Burnam who in spite of her first name being Michael is a young woman.

Looking forward to season 4. Anyone interested you do really need tp start at the begining and episide one of season one.

So I was watching afterstories about Discovery and especially this episode. When you watch it is not as if you say to yourself wow that is really great how they did that. The story and all the action just so real and seemless.

It is all done with even more new ways than even just computer generated stuff that gets added later. I can't much explain it but the end results are just awesome. Love it!!

My Dog Tulip is an odd and stylish animated film, very different than the stock sentimental dog flick.

Thumb of 2021-11-21/subarctic/152b67
We both liked it a lot.

If you like animated movies try The Plague Dogs. Even though it is animated this is not a movie for children. This is a description I found on it.
"The Plague Dogs', the 1982 British-American film based on the 1977 novel of the same name by author Richard Adams is one of the most visceral, wrenching & depressing emotional cartoons, you'll ever will find that was once rated PG.
I would say extremely sad but definitely worth seeing and you will not forget that you did. Used to be on Amazon Prime , not sure if it still is.

That was one book I regretted reading. Up to then, I had loved Richard Adams - would watch a movie made from The Girl in a Swing or Maia, any time. Shardik, maybe. Watership Down was excellent. No way I'd subject myself to a film version of Plague Dogs. I'm onlly grateful it's animated, not live action.

I bullied Prime into coughing up a series, late at night, called Why Women Kill. As of episode 4.... no, I won't tell you. It's funny - great cast.

I have the book Shardik. I do like it. Never cared for Watership down.
I'm not sure if a movie could be made on Shardik; perhaps with the bear as cgi.

I agree that it is a hard read and movie to watch, might be the saddest ending to a book and movie I have ever read or seen but think it is worth it. Wish Adams had written more books , I enjoyed them all.

Just finished season 1 of Why Women Kill. The ending was.... different. And not at all what I expected. None of it was predictable. I didn't like everything about the stories - actually, just one of the three stories; I loved the other two. I'm looking forward to season 2.
On Knowledge, Vera is over and I don't know what to watch on Sunday nights now. Probably revert to Lewis, third time around.

We're saving 'Shetland' for the weekend. Might try the captions on for translating, but it can be distracting.
'Bored to Death'!? Anything but! Tons of fun for the wacky set.
Watched 'Shang Chi' and 'Wonder Woman 1984'. Both excellent additions to the Marvelverse.

My hearing is going due to old age and I need the captions on for everything. Usually the words go across the bottom and are fairly discreet but occasionally they are large enough to block the scene or across the top which is really distracting.

I love the Marvell universe, but haven't seen Shang chi, I'm waiting for it to hit either Redbox or HBO. I've recorded Promising Young Woman and also the hour long show of Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett singing together. Haven't watched either yet, I'm clearing the TiVo of backed up episodes of several History Channel series.

I must have missed Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett. (I MAY have recorded it...I'll have to check.) *Blush*
