TV Thursday: Orphan Black Season 5 (2017)

September 14th, 2017

I used to love Orphan Black, I was a huge fan of the first season, but as time went on, it started to fall to the bottom of my “must see” list.  And it has nothing to do with Tatiana Maslany, she was great throughout, it has to do with trying to do too much and losing focus on the things that mattered to me.

So anyhow, this is my look at the end of the series and what they, and a lot of other shows, did completely wrong, at least in my opinion.

TV Thursday: Shut Eye Season 1 (2016)

September 7th, 2017

I love Jeffrey Donovan, I don’t think there’s been a single thing that I’ve seen him in that I haven’t enjoyed.  So recently, I was just poking around, wondering what he’s been up to after the end of Burn Notice and I saw that he’d been in a Hulu Original series called Shut Eye, that had just been renewed for season 2. Of course I had to grab it and take a look, and as I already knew, I loved it!

So here’s my look at the first season of Shut Eye.  Enjoy.

Anime Review: Atom – The Beginning (2017)

September 5th, 2017

I really don’t watch too much anime these days, mostly because there isn’t a lot out there that interests me.  I get all of the new Gundam series, of course, but there isn’t a lot of sci-fi available otherwise.  Then I stumbled across the 12-episode series Atom: The Beginning, which is a loose adaptation prequel of Osamu Tezuka’s Mighty Atom for a modern audience.  Hey, I’m a big Tezuka fan, so why the heck not?  So here’s my look at Atom: The Beginning, as I see if classic anime can have a new life.

More Saw Stop Stupidity

September 2nd, 2017

Morons should not work with wood.

This kind of stuff pops up constantly, as the Cult of Saw Stop tries to get people to buy their saws, whether people want them or not.  So this guy starts asking what kind of table saw he should buy, which is always a dangerous topic, and someone pops up with:

If you continually find it difficult to stay focused, if your mind constantly wanders while running power tools, if you have extremely poor hand/eye coordination, if mechanical things confuse you, if working with tools has always been a mystery to you, if you are constantly injuring yourself on the simplest tasks, get the Saw Stop.

And my response was… you mean people who shouldn’t be woodworkers in the first place, right?
