Watched "A silent place" last weekend. Got fantastic reviews. Well acted and produced certainly. But I just couldn't get past the ridiculous premise. The premise reminded me of "Signs".


SPOILER ALERT














Would be quite easy to destroy the beasts. They are sooooo vulnerable. No way they could have brought civilization to the edge.

Maybe a little over half speed. They are averaging 130+ mph for the lap. I'm thinking an 80-90 mph average speed would be enough to make it fun, challenging, but not completely out of control.

13 Reasons Why on Netflix.

Just finished the first season.  Gripping stuff about teenage suicide told in an interesting way.  Some of the storylines are a little far fetched, but compelling stuff and well portrayed.  The show is designed to get parents & kids to talk about this stuff. 
2009 GTR 1400 ABS, 48k miles, AMSOIL synthetic 10W-40 (since new), AMSOIL synthetic 75W-90 final drive (since new). Helibar Horizons, Symtec heat demon grips, V-Stream windscreen, Mountain Runner Flash, Brian’s low fuel eliminator farkle, ST2 smart brake module and smart turn system.

We are watching that right now, probably about 4 episodes into the first season. Not a bad show but I have a hard time watching Sandra Oh; for whatever reason, she just 'rubs my fur the wrong way' and I would prefer she not be in my living room.  ;)  Otherwise the show is pretty good and who does not like a well- played psychopath?

BBC has a new show airing called Killing Eve that is my new favorite for this year.

Brian, you're not the only Brian I know who doesn't like her, how weird. I recommended the show to a coworker named Brian, and he didn't continue after the first episode because of her.

It really is a fantastic show to the end, the very end, but streaming it is only available for like two more weeks.

Yeah, normally I am not sensitive to anyone's looks or presence or anything like that but that woman is like sandpaper against my eyes. And it is not like I hate her or anything, I just do not want to see or hear her (actually the hearing part is OK except it brings up a photo image on my mental Rolodex). I know nothing about the woman at all and have no prejudice or anything. I cannot even explain or understand it myself, but something(s) about her just sets off my 'look elsewhere' phase, kinda like looking at something a dog would leave behind.... :-)

Long time ago I asked a good friend of mine if he watched Everybody Loves Raymond and he said no, because he simply could not stand the sight / presence of Raymond. Go figure?

I have two seasons as a hard- copy so streaming makes no difference.

Interesting. I had a problem with that show because I didn't like Patricia Heaton. But it turns out I just didn't like her character because I really like he in The Middle.

forget to post 2 days ago...
was snooping on Netflix, for something worth while...( pickings are very lean... and they consider 2005 stuff as "just added" fodder...)

Ken Burns "The Vietnam war", all 18 hours of it, 10 chapters, is up there now... almost got thru it all... sure is better when you can watch them back to back, instead of waiting 24 hours between like when it first popped up on PBS...
enjoy.

Finished the first season of Killing Eve: I have to say, it ended a lot better than it started IMO. Interesting series. It will be back for another season at least and I plan on watching that one.

My wife was always irritated raw by Debra on that show: her take was that Debra was the biggest B!tc& in the world. Does not really strike me that way but the character was overbearing and a but uppity IMO. Marie was extremely overbearing but she had the asset that she was hysterical and a very well- developed character. One of my all- time favorite TV characters, Marine Barone.

Yeah, I am always very concerned about how I appear to 'manly' men. That means you, cupcake. :-)  I LOVE Marie Barone in Everybody Loves Raymond. One of my favorite movies is Casablanca..... my son thought I was 'Mary Jane Tinklepants' over that too but he watched it and now he too likes it a lot. Not my favorite movie though, those would be either Unforgiven or The Usual Suspects.

Besides, as of last Monday, I do not need to read to your kids anymore, got a Granddaughter of my own! Penelope Elizabeth, demanded to be 'let out' last Monday (18 June) and both Mom and daughter are doing fine. So now I have a brand- new audience for my stories, the first of which will be of the origin of her name: Penelope, faithful and steady wife of Odysseus, mother of Telemachus. She fended off 'the suitors' for twenty years, waiting for Odysseus to return home, and when he did, "he slew them all". I love that story myself (Homer's The Odyssey).

Besides all that, YOU seemed to be sitting awfully close to Guy Young an awful lot of the time when we were in TN but hey, I do not judge.....  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:
