one of the "tv nice things", after moving to e. tejas (from just north of houston), is that there's no Traffic Reporting during the local news (no traffic = no traffic news)

on the other hand.....the amount of wasted "news time" taken up by the weather reports - no rain, hot, humid (gee I just gave our weather report in 3 seconds/in 3 words.....why can't the hicks who run these tv stations do the same ?

give us more "news"/less "non-weather"   :frown:

If you have Amazon Prime watch The Expanse. It's awesome.

It's a hard-ish Sci-Fi where there's no real magic tech beyond engines efficient enough to accelerate at several G's for days or weeks. There's no artificial gravity, but ships are built like a skyscraper with the engines on the bottom, so that while your accelerating the thrust creates artificial gravity. But if you're just coasting it's float or use mag boots!

Anyway I can sing it's praises all day, it's good. Watch it.

A friend of my wife's, had all the complete seasons of "I Love Lucy" DVD's, and she didn't care for them, so she gave them to the wife. So for the past couple of days, we have been watching them and laughing our butts off!

Never watched any of the series (not my type of thing), BUT.... Having worked at not one, but five different packaging/distribution/inbound-outbound shipping factories and warehouses thus far, I can say that they NAILED the segment on what it's like to work in a high output production environment:



It was like watching that play out more or less the same way every week when we'd get a fresh shipment of new people.

Spent a couple of hours watching videos of Jay Leno's Garage. Some really cool cars. Some are cars he personally owns and some belong to other people he invites on the show to show off their cars.

a couple days ago I recorded two of the Jesse Stone movies - 1 I'd seen (but enjoyed seeing it again) - the other I hadn't seen - really like his movies

(just had to fast-forward thru the many/long commercials but not a big deal)

The BluRay HD re-press of Independence Day.

I don't care that the plot is cheesy or that it's nothing more than popcorn fun, it's one of my all-time favorite movies ever.

"This was supposed to be my weekend off. But nooooo.... Got me out here, draggin' yo heavy ass... Through the burnin' desert... With your dreadlocks stickin' out the back of my parachute. You gotta come down here with an attitude.... Actin' all big and bad........... AND WHAT THE HELL IS THAT SMELL!?!?"'

recorded the movie "John Wick" a while back and started watching it early this morning

have seen it before, but everything on tv absolutely sucks - so

my opinion of it is that it's like an animated comic book, complete unbelievable b.s. - we need more action movies like the original God Father

I have seen all 3 of them. #3 was a little TOO over the top at the end. But overall, they were pretty good. #1 and #2 were enjoyable

Have you watched Hell or High Water with Jeff Bridges as a modern day about to retire Texas Ranger chasing two brothers who are serial bank robbers? Filmed on location in small towns in and around the Texas panhandle. Great story with realistic gun play. Highly recommend.

I also like gangster flicks. Martin Scorsese is coming out with his next gangster flick The Irishman this Thanksgiving weekend. De Niro plays a mob hitman that gets involved with the Hoffa disappearance. Hate De Niro and his liberal crap but when he teams up with Scorsese it's usually a good bet.

just watched my recording of Jason Bourne - the one where the CIA director dies in Las Vegas - hadn't seen it before

the Bourne series - excellent (except for the long-drawn out car chases)
