In 2021 I need to figure out some way of watching new shows, instead of just watching various Laws & Orders, Forensic Files, and Supernatural for the 13th time.

I stopped counting how many shows I watched this year. I watch an embarrassing amount of TV. Mostly older stuff this year though, since there hasn't been a bunch of new content for a while.

My goal this year is to watch Highlander, and maybe a Star Trek. I've started DS9 about four times and given up pretty early on each time.

Is Highlander streaming anywhere?

The series is on peacock I think

Was all excited to start it but Peacock only has season 1 (of 6) available, which is totally lame.

Hmm, just searching on prime it appears to be on imdb TV, so free with ads. All 6 seasons seem to be there

Huh, weird. I did a search earlier and Amazon was telling me it was available on something called CONtv for $4.99/mo extra. If I look at results via Google I still see this, but if I search for it directly through Amazon, I see it available on imdb TV.

Even fuckin Walker? I heard it was horrible.

It's only had 2 eps so far and I wouldn't say it's horrible but it's not great either. They're rushing out exposition so fast that it feels very forced and the (extremely dumb, especially in ep 1) procedural parts are almost glossed over. The 1min clip of Walker's wife dying that is supposed to set up his whole backstory was hilariously terrible though, yes.

I'll probably give it another ep or two before I give up unless it really improves.

A random TV thing I stumbled upon today... Jim Beaver, the guy that plays Ellsworth on Deadwood, is pretty dang active on Quora: https://www.quora.com/profile/Jim-Beaver

Answering all sorts of random questions, mostly related to television and movies. It's funny seeing him talk about Deadwood, and how one of the actors refused to film their death scene so the character just kind of disappeared.

This is cool, thanks for sharing. He's a fun Twitter follow too and posts a lot about older movies.

Do not watch that clip if you've never seen The Guest bc it spoils basically the entire movie.

And if you have not seen The Guest, what is wrong with you, go watch it right now

Apparently Colbert spouted off what he thinks the Amazon series should be to an Amazon exec and they clammed up and walked away from him.

https://youtu.be/aoWzGYNyPPY

He either hit the nail on the head or made the guy realize they made a grave mistake attempting it.

If Amazon does some dumb live reaction show after each ep for their LotR series and does not get Colbert as the host, they have hosed up.

Anyone else watching Shadow and Bone on Netflix? I had never heard of it before, but it looks promising so far. A bit fantasy steampunky.

Just finished it, pretty good imho. Ben Barnes is really great at being the bad guy.

Edit: show is super predictable but I guess that might be a spoiler

Criminal Minds was pretty decent imho up to season 5 or so when they kill off Hotchner's wife. I seen to recall it making a pretty quick decline after that.

Also lol at Thomas Gibson torpedoing his career be being a complete piece of poo poo on set.

was that the season where Sam had that annoying rear end girlfriend subplot? Because that's when I threw in the towel

That was the season immediately afterwards (season 8) and agreed that Amelia loving sucks and so does that entire stupid storyline. Yeah sure Sam is not gonna search for Dean because he hit a dog with his car (and the dog is fine). :jerkbag: But the season 8 finale is also one of the best. Supernatural post season 5: a land of contrasts.

Don't stop watching after season 5, season 6 and 7 and great and imho so are the Leviathans if only for all the dick jokes they get to make.

Wait, in Ep1 when the older brother has a box of heavy metal cassettes, did the show originally license Metallica and stuff?

Yeah, all the original music in season 1 is stripped out on all the streaming services due to licensing shenanigans. None of the replacement music is bad it's just incredibly generic and there are a whole bunch of music cues you miss if you watch it on Netflix the first time through.

Ffffff. Am I really gonna buy DVDs in 2021?

Don't Fear The Reaper plays when they first introduce reapers so it's that kind of slightly on-the-nose stuff but yeah you also miss the first time they play Carry On Wayward Son, Highway To Hell, Back in Black, a whole bunch of Bad Company, Metallica, etc. If you're a fan of 70's/80's classic rock then I would try and rent the first season from the library or something, the music adds a lot to it.

But by far my all time favorite is "Renegade" in season two. I hope that one's on streaming because if it's not that's even worse than a war crime.

It is. Only season 1 has the stupid replacement music.

Would agree that is the best music cue in the entire show.

I guess in fairness while Bialik IS anti-vax she says her family has all gotten the Covid vax. Which is a bizarre rear end position to hold.

Yeah I don't think she deserves any kudos here when she has spent close to a decade spewing her "there are just too many vaccines" stance (including writing a book about it) just because she and her kids got the COVID vax. She's shilling snake oil brain pills in prime time commercial space right now. I have never watched BBT and am only aware of her prior to this announcement due to her lovely anti-science views.

Thanks to the Jeopardy thread I now also know she's got plenty of other lovely non-vaccine related opinions too!
