Not watching many series at present, kind of absorbing podcasts instead. I thought that there was a dedicated podcast thread, but I cannot find it anywhere. So I'm just hijacking this thread to sing the praises of 'The Adventure zone' and 'MBMBaM' (My brother, my brother and me).

these are two fantastic long-running podcast shows which I'm sure will appeal to a lot of people on this forum. So if you prefer a bit of earcandy to get a break from all the visual assaults, I can heartily recommend those.

MBMBaM is a show by three brothers (the McElroys) giving lifestyle advice based on random Yahoo/Reddit/etc internet questions (or, as they say themselves: "An advice show for the modern era"). They've also taken this show concept to YouTube for a few series, which are equally highly entertaining.


The Adventure Zone is those same three brothers, together with their dad, doing roleplaying campaigns. Normally I'm not a big fan of roleplaying podcasts or YouTube videos as they tend to get rather boring and sloggish (in my opinion) if you aren't a massive RP fan yourself, but The Adventure zone is just bloody hilarious from start to finish. I think they've just started their 4th campaign in a series that spans about 8 years now.


Honestly, do yourselves a favour and search it out. Well worth it.

Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions starts today. That awkward smiling, quick buzzer pushin', answer machine, and all around weirdo - James Holzhauer, is back. He'll start his run on Wednesday.

Jean Smart in Watchmen. She is sooo good. All other actors that share a scene with her just sort of turn translucent.

Looking forward to it, as well. LotR, WoT, and Vox Machina, amazon is killing it.

Watched an episode of Life from Above on PBS. It was wonderful. This was episode 3 (I missed the first two regrettably, will have to keep an eye out for when/if they are aired again). The show is about viewing the planet from satellite cameras in space and finding unique formations and patterns and and then zooming down to examine what they are and how they were made. Episode 3 was all about the patterns. Did you know that the largest beaver damn is in Canada and can be seen from space? And that there is a hidden rain forest in Africa that sits atop a mountain that was only recently discovered? Anyway if Planet Earth (or similar shows) is your jam, give Life from Above a looksy.

Donít want to jinx it but if Watchmen can finish this season up with the quality that eps 1-4 have been I think I can easily give it best tv of 19.

Watched season 2 of Jack Ryan.

On par with the first.

Probably better action but Ryan has dropped his cleaner than clean too quickly for my liking.

It's still a pile of America fuck yeah saving the world thanks guys, but it's entertaining enough. And I like Krasinski.

The 'twist' as t the end was phoned in from like episode two, but at least it takes a bit of the 'you know, the CIA are actually good guys' look off the whole thing.

Not enough, but a bit

Started watching "Living With Yourself" feat. Paul Rudd and I want sure what to expect but I got a pretty funny, clever and entertaining show with some heart. Definitely carrying on with it.

New season of Rick and Morty started Sunday night. The show is still in top form. Ep1 had not just a Death Stranding easter egg, but a full blown segment that was awesome.Posted Image

Indeed.

And the one good thing about it that made it slightly less America Rah Rah for me was

The sheer volume of library titles available at launch for Disney+ is staggering. Like I'd seen the list, but until I opened the app for the first time this morning, it didn't dawn on me JUST what you are getting for $9/month.

Dumping Amazon Prime for this for the next year or so, and then will pick Prime back up when more original content comes for that one.

I still haven't seen if every title will be available everywhere yet. Is Canadian D+ the same as the American one do you know?

As far as I'm aware every launch is nearly identical (as will yours in ....March is it?) The ONLY places that things have not shown up or crossed over would be where streaming/TV deals interrupt with it. For example, The Last Jedi isn't on it right now because they have a streaming deal with Netflix that has not run out yet, I expect that title will be added after that timeframe/deal is up. I'm not aware of any Canadian-specfici deals with the CTRC that prevent the library from being the same as the US one (as far as I'm aware it's because Disney has never buckled to give say Bell [our monopolistic company who snaps up shit like HBO and then overcharges for it] any deals on they content...so I'm fairly certain we are the same, and any stragglers will show up eventually.

And itís apparently plagued with issues. My girls didnít have school today so they were excited to start exploring it.

Canít get anything to load, if the app will open at all.
