The G Word with Adam Conover

The G Word with Adam Conover: Created by Jon Cohen, Adam Conover, Jon Wolf. With Nicole Randall Johnson, James Austin Johnson, Sierra Katow, Carol Herman. Follows Conover introducing the civil servants who make it work and take a satirical look at its shortcomings. You may remember Adam Conover from “Adam Ruins Everything” a series that I believe started on College Humor and graduated to TBS, running from 2015 to 2019. It was basically Penn and Teller’s “Bullshit” but with much more hand holding research and documented sources, explaining the ins and outs about everything from office rights to circumcision. “The...

RIP Baby Cat

Sent another well loved pet across the rainbow bridge today, Baby Cat was about 14 years old and was a fantastic nap buddy and all around good cat. She’s left some marks on our lives (and our door frame!), and I’m never going to forget her. She’s the last of my original animals that I had before I got married, but is definitely not our last cat, we have 8 more in the house right now, four ours and four fosters! If you’d like to give a donation to ECAH Animals in her name, I’d greatly appreciate it.

Constantine

Constantine: Directed by Francis Lawrence. With Keanu Reeves, Rachel Weisz, Shia LaBeouf, Djimon Hounsou. Supernatural exorcist and demonologist John Constantine helps a policewoman prove her sister’s death was not a suicide, but something more. With all due respect to the other actors that have played the Hellblazer, this is likely my favorite version of the character, with my favorite story that the he’s been in on screen. Sure he’s not british, sure he’s not blonde, but he’s got the same middle finger waving attitude you’d hope for from someone that’s just angry at the state of things and having to...

The Morning Show

The Morning Show: Created by Jay Carson, Kerry Ehrin. With Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass. An inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning, exploring the unique challenges faced by the men and women who carry out this daily televised ritual. With the acting as good as or better than the fantastic first season, unfortunately the writing isn’t as impressive as it could have been with some well telegraphic and silly things happening towards the end of season 2. It was again only 10 episodes long, but several of...

Cat food, LEGO, Big Batteries, An Opossum, and Cat Posers

Our three foster kittens have been eating this stuff, I’m a fan of the name. Target had a $20 lego sale, so i bought a couple sets! I now have a total of four batmobiles I think.  There was a ’89 one somewhere in my old work office, I’m not 100% sure it made it home with me, and if it did, where it is now. Odo is a long cat. This little guy is alive and just fine, he scared the carp out of me when I was cleaning my car.  When I first found him, he was wedged...

But his high-stakes journey takes hi A great but short story about humanity turning on itself for profit.

Ambulance

Ambulance: Directed by Michael Bay. With Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Eiza González, Garret Dillahunt. Two robbers steal an ambulance after their heist goes awry. This is about as refined of a movie you’re ever going to get from Michael Bay, it’s obvious that he’s been refining his drone work, and his pairing with Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen, and IIEiza González are nearly a match made in heaven, as they’re apparently able to take his direction without turning it into pure camp. There’s a specific demographic that Bay aims for, I’m somewhat in it, but I feel he’s really done...

Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story

Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story: With Roger Ordish, Mark Lawson, Meirion Jones, Alison Bellamy. Jimmy Savile once ruled the airwaves with a quirky persona and good works. So how did this icon manage to hide his many alleged bad deeds for so long? I only heard of this guy after the news broke about his unfortunate life choices and the hundreds of people that he took advantage of. The damming part of the story is that of all the police that were contacted and were made aware of what he was doing, not a single one of them got...

Severance

Severance: Created by Dan Erickson. With Adam Scott, Zach Cherry, Britt Lower, Tramell Tillman. Mark leads a team of office workers whose memories have been surgically divided between their work and personal lives. When a mysterious colleague appears outside of work, it begins a journey to discover the truth about their jobs. Delightfully atmospheric and mind boggling weird, my only complaint is that season one doesn’t wrap up the story, so we’ll have to wait for season two to (maybe?) wrap up this strange story of people living two lives inside of one body. Buy On Amazon!

Trickster

Trickster: Created by Tony Elliott, Michelle Latimer. With Joel Oulette, Crystle Lightning, Kalani Queypo, Anna Lambe. Jared is an Indigenous teen struggling to keep his dysfunctional family above water. When he starts seeing strange things – talking ravens, doppelgängers, skin monsters – his already chaotic life is turned upside down. Only six episodes long and released 2 years ago, so there’s not likely going to be a sequel, but that’s just fine, this mini series did everything I could hope for with the subject matter, going places that I didn’t expect with a story that seems goofy on the face...
