What is Gotham Trying to Say about Interracial Marriages?

Even though I grew up a comic book nerd, I’m pretty much over all the Marvel/DC Comics superhero movies. I used to watch them religiously at the movie theater – because if one must watch a big budgeted bloated bonanza of bombastic visual proportions, then it must be watched while on the big screen – however, I’m trying very hard to wean myself off of them. Key word: trying.

Despite the fact that I know without a doubt I’m going to be hugely disappointed at the movie’s end, I still find it hard to resist them. For instance, the buzz around the Black Panther movie is phenomenal so chances are pretty good I’ll make the trek to my local Frank’s Theatre and hope for the best… while still expecting the worst.

Fortunately, thanks to the likes of HBO, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and the… like, the superhero genre has not been left behind during this amazing renaissance of television we’re happily going through.

As for there being any good content on broadcast television, I wouldn’t know. I haven’t watched anything on any of the broadcast channels, other than sports, since Happy Days went off the air… what has it been? a year or two ago?

Except for one broadcast show, that is.

Gotham.

I am off on a hardcore wide-eyed binge on that show, which should tell you that I don’t actually watch it when it’s broadcasted on Fox. No way. Never again will I be a slave to a network time slot.

I watch Gotham as any discerning 21st Century viewer would, at my leisure on that amazing little channel of an app called Netflix.

With all its dark, demented, hyper-violence, let me tell ya… Gotham is good. Real good. It actually feels like a comic book has been brought to life, making it exactly what a discerning 21st Century television viewer like yours truly wants…

And deserves.

Anyway, onward to the point of this overly prolific post…

“The Way” of Technology

Well, my bold Westworld binge-watching bonanza proclamation turned out to be nothing more than a bunch of ballyhooed BS…

I only got through the fourth episode before running out of time.

Consequently, I can’t provide anything much in the way of a review. But I can provide a bit of feedback that might mean something about its watchability

Which is… I kept falling asleep while watching it.

Now, full disclosure, I’ve taken some of my best naps during what turned out to be some of my favorite shows so my inability to stay awake while watching Westworld in and of itself doesn’t mean that much.

As for what I was able to stay awake for… I really like what it is trying to do in concept; however, its execution…

Westworld, Ho!

I just discovered that SlingTV is offering HBO for free for the next two days…

Been dying to watch Westworld.

I’ll see you in four days.

Two days of binging…

Two days of crashing from the sleep deprivation.

 

Blame it on Netflix

You’ve more than likely noticed a significant drop-off of interesting and relevant content (and by interesting and relevant content I mean posts other than this one and all the uninteresting and irrelevant others like it) lately…

Well, if Netflix would slow down on all the awesomeness it has been allowing for, then I could actually focus on some interesting and relevant writing.

You see, I’m a strong proponent for that “all things in moderation” maxim…

Except when it comes to Netflix because, baby, I be doing dome serious binging (or is it bingeing – my guess is that’s how the Brits would spell it… you know, with their love for extraneous letters and odd “proper” pronunciations, and all) for the past couple month, or so.

But hopefully things will get back on track soon as I’m just about caught up on most of my favorites such as…

Sherlock
Dexter
(lame ending)
Supernatural
(all 5000 or so episodes)
Sons of Anarchy
(yes, like everyone else I, too, have a man-crush on Jax)
Hell on Wheels
Copper
Peaky Blinders
(masterful. award-worthy)
Magic City
(bad acting but still fun)
Spartacus
(never fully recovered after Andy Whitfield, Spartacus I, died from cancer)
And many others I’m too embarrassed to admit I watched

Though, I still have some work to do on these favorites…

Foyle’s War
Ripper Street
The Walking Dead
Marco Polo

I’ve started these but probably won’t finish for lack of interest…

Breaking Bad
Orange is the New Black
Dr Who
Mad Men
House of Cards
(boring original version)

But all things have come to a halt as the binge has begun on the crack-daddy of them all

House of Cards (awesome new version)

Oh yeah…

On second thought, it appears interesting and relevant may be lacking around here for quite some time to come…

Binge on?

Binge on!

 
 

If I could marry Netflix I would…

But since I’m already happily married and I don’t live in the Middle East, or Utah, I can’t.

Anyway, right now I’m a bit miffed and a lot impatient with my favorite little binge bot.

When is Netflix going to release Season Six of Sons of Anarchy?!

I mean, c’mon…

I’ve already watched the first five seasons…twice.

The only thing I can say is thanks be to the movie gods seeing that they just released Season Four of The Walking Dead.

That should keep me entertained.

For about sixteen hours, anyway.

Binge, hut…
