    S15.E19: Silent All These Years

    I’m wondering if they are gearing up another Very Special episode? Jo’s avoidance, distraction, hyper focus, and need for sleep looks like depression. Her adverse childhood experiences would have her in the potential funky brain chemistry club. I’m a card holding member!

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    My brother and I had a huge discussion about the tesseract timeline after the movie. One of our theories is Mar-Vell exchanged technology with Howard for the tesseract.

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    I absolutely loved it and plan on seeing it again! Brie did a great job. Her rapport with Sam Jackson was great. The plot got a little twisty in points and I’m still trying to figure something out (totally open to DMs). The soundtrack with other 90’s shoutouts made me happy. Some of the millennial audience laughed way too hard for this grumpy Gen Xer. Thanos is so completely screwed and I’m squealing on the inside.

    S44.E14: John Mulaney / Thomas Rhett

    My roommate and I figured out why this episode was so good aside from John Mulaney being great. None of the sketches went on too long. No punchlines beaten to death. Just setting, twist, laugh, absurder twist, and laugh, done.

    Russian Doll

    Just finished the show and absolutely loved it! I cared about the mystery, Nadia, and Alan. It made me cry, laugh, and sigh with happiness. My first though that this had to be a one and done season. But if there are other seasons, Nadia’s line about “What if everybody else goes on.” sticks with me. Maybe two other characters are in a loop for season 2 like Ruth and bodega guy? I’m pleased they didn’t go the Nadia’s mom wasn’t crazy, she was just reacting to her own loop route. With the multiple timelines, I kept thinking about the Rick and Morty episode where uncertainty broke time.

    The Passage

    This last episode was fantastic! Characters actually shared information - there is nothing I hate more than characters being uninformed just to create drama. Amy is still the enjoyable lynchpin. Lacey being alive got a big cheer from me. I started thinking about how this project would have two sourcing issues -test subjects and support staff. They overcame the former by utilizing death row inmates but the latter? It seems to be a mix of special ops, academic scientists, and randos. How is that feasible? You’d need a particular skill set, a person okay with moral ambiguity, and an NDA at least.

    Project Blue Book

    Is the sound mixing really bad on this show or am I going deaf? It seems like the music is louder than the dialogue. Or are the actors mumbling to get to passable American accents? For episode #2, raise your hand if you thought “it puts the lotion in the basket...”

    S44.E10: Rachel Brosnahan / Greta Van Fleet

    I liked this SNL so much, I kept it on my DVR and might rewatch it! As a Gen Xer, I was prepared to sit back and watch the show implode but was pleasantly surprised! I also struggle with depression and anxiety so Pete talking about his issues at least removes the suffering in silence. Like we’ve heard/learned depression lies so if you voice what that dark pit is saying, your friends/family can set you straight or pull a 5150 to get you on good meds. The stigma around mental health is that we’re weak/emotional/enjoy wallowing and that if we really wanted to, we’d get better. You know how we tell diabetics that they need to tell their pancreas who’s boss, right? 🙄

    Tea with the Dames (2018)

    It’s available On Demand through Comcast. It is absolutely delightful. Lots a dry humor, show biz tales, and Maggie Smith is basically aging into Lady Grantham. It’s also a bit sad, if you step out of the moment, to know that we will lose these great women sooner rather than later.

    S02.E03: coMplications

    I was worried for a second that Reed would disintegrate his wife! I wonder if he has both Fenris powers? Or he’ll be able to contain/offset Lauren and Andy.

    A Star is Born (2018)

    I seriously forgot I was watching a movie - it was that good! I'm glad I'm not the only one spotting the former Alias cast member cameos. Ally needed Al Anon or her own therapy to get out of the co-dependence and apologizing away bad behavior. Since I come from a long line of alcoholics, I believe that the root is usually self medication. Poor Jack... I'm going to snap up the soundtrack because I can't get the songs out of my head. Edited to add - the asshole producer is Bug from "Life Unexpected"

    Dancing Queen

    I finished all of season 1 (shitty day avoidance). I loved how patient and honest Justin is with the kids and moms. Marcella needs time and/or therapy. I could have done without the music video montages every episode. Also, the changing hair colors and cuts on the kids and moms had me struggling to keep up. I’ll definitely be back for season 2.

    S01.E01: Pilot

    I have struggled with depression and attempted suicide several times. I watched the show out of morbid curiosity. Some aspects rang really true and some were ridiculous. I liked the whole "losing the horizon" analogy. I joked to my roommate that the PSA was for everyone who hasn't slit their wrists yet - ha! I'm not really emotionally invested/vaguely curious about the characters and the show feels emotionally manipulative. Hard pass on this one for self care reasons and general dislike.
