    Have the spankings already started? Jordan really loves his spankings.

    They are quickly running out of time though. Worrying prospects of another year of war and misery ahead if no significant gains can be made before October. Russia (Putin) seems pigheaded enough to just dig in and persist come what may, whereas Ukraine will increasingly struggle with keeping its western allies engaged and funding the war effort.

    Finished most of Good Omens season two---stopped in the middle of the last episode, feel no compulsion to finish it (but I will, next Friday). Guess my expectations were too high---I remember really liking season one. The script generally seems much weaker (despite a few good lines and conceits), and the acting makes it worse. It's as if they're compensating for the weak script with distractingly hammy embellishments and/or by rushing through without inflection. They remind me of bad Shakesperean actors who assume the audience won't understand what's being said anyway, and don't seem to understand much of it themselves. Made me wonder if the director just hated most of the script, but it appears to be the same guy from season one---but they're not the writer (Neil Gaiman apparently wrote it and was co-showrunner, though IDK how much say he had). Hamm's acting was decent when playing 'corny dad with hot body' or 'cheery asshole boss'. Crowley actor was okay---mostly just understated gruff or cranky, with bouts of arguably justified manic over-acting---but there's more of a focus on Aziraphale. The music and cinematography remind me of other Amazon series like Rings of Power and [that shitty werewolf fairy show] season 2---glossy 90's big budget Hollywood children's movie. However I didn't find it to be much of a slog. Overall I'd give it a resounding 'okay'; glad they made it, wouldn't mind another season or two, but it would be nice if it were actually good more of the time....

    Haven't started watching it yet. The original Pratchett/Gaiman novel is the first season, so that for me is Good Omens. I'm not sure what a brand new season can bring to the table if there is no original book content or idea to back it up. Great that Gaiman was involved and I am a big fan of his works, but it was mainly the Pratchett humor that made the original novel the genius masterpiece that it is. Any follow-ons, especially without Pratchett involvement, are bound to be pale imitations. I'll give it a go if a space in our endless 'to weatch' list opens up, i guess.

    Haven't watched it in some time, but I heard today that Bray Wyatt died aged 36. Bloody hell. What a tragic loss. Heart attack after an illness exacerbated by a Covid infection. Gutted.
