    Really enjoying my binge of "Carnival Row" on Amazon Prime right now.

    "Another Life" on Netflix was a very strange binge, though. Katee Sackhoff and Samuel Anderson (William, the AI Interface) were consistently great and watchable and deserved everyone (and everything) else to be on that level. But overall, it started out as "Okay, I'll give this one more episode." Then it became a hate-watch for a crew that should never be trusted with the fate of humanity ("Wait, they're running out of water, so they're scrubbing the ships decks with ... water?") and bad science even for TV ("How can they say it's an endless void of nothing when they're all staring at a big glowing swirly purple cloud of something?"). Then some of the other characters actually grew on me, and it became a guilty pleasure. And the last episode was actually, well, really kind of good.

    We watched the first episode of Carnival Row. It was pretty good. It felt like they were trying to introduce a lot of threads all at once, but it was the first episode so I gave them a pass. I don't know if my BF and our room mate care to watch more though, so I have waited to watch episode 2.

    Our room mate keeps saying we need to try The Tick. Maybe today.

    No spoilers but The Villain’s song Other Friends is what the kids call a Bop, And her old timey cartoon design is fantastic. One part Fletcher cartoon, one part Monkey D Luffy and One part Maka Albarn(Soul eater)

    I thought it was Rubber Horse design? Either way, but fan of Steven, but the episodes always air at weird times and my DVR doesn't get them. Watching some Hunter X Hunter for research though.

    You’re right with the rubber hose design Fletcher was the animator of a bunch of those old designs. Like Betty Boop and others

    Learn something new every day.
    I blame that term on Arrin Hanson of Game Grumps. I think I picked it up during their play-through of Cuphead.

    Just finished watching Star vs the Forces of Evil with the kiddo. It started kinda hyper and off-putting but very quickly showed that it was made of substance, deep secrets, serious games, and amazing characters. Now that we've hit the show's end, I count it as one of the better things I've watched.

    Highly recommend, if you haven’t already watched with your kids, Gravity Falls and the 2017 DuckTales reboot. Both have hilarious writing, voice work and visual gags.
    Gravity falls It’s about a set of twins that live with their grand uncle in a tourist trap within Oregon and follow their adventures unraveling the mystery of the weird things that happen there. It has a wonderful cast of characters, both main and side, and probably the most insanely menacing villain ive seen kids show in Bill Cypher. Gravity falls even per episode had interesting ciphers and Easter eggs within the show that gave clues about other parts of the shows over arching storylines. Warning though some of the images can be scary to younger viewers like the Shape shifter which is kinda nightmare fuel

    If he grew up in the 80s or 90s you probably had the DuckTales theme song stuck in your head and it’s back in all its glory. This time it boasts a superb cast with David Tenet as Scrooge, Dani Pudi(community), Ben Schwartz(Parks and Rec/Sonic) and Bobby Moynihan as Huey, Dewy, and Louie as well as Kate Micucci as Webby. Call backs to the disney afternoon shows with appearances by Classic characters like Darkwing Duck, going places like Cape Suzette(TaleSpin), or having Super Soldier serum be gummy berry juice(Gummy Bears) keep the nostalgia and laughs high. Also like gravity falls it has an air of mystery mainly with Della Duck, Donalds sister and the triplets mother, and what happened to her.

    Thanks for the reccs!

    My son has watched all of Gravity Falls already (curses!)...maybe he'll be up for a rewatch though. I hadn't even considered the new Duck Tales reboot, will definitely check it out.
    I wonder how long till Dark Wing Duck makes a comeback?

    BTW, Del Toro's Troll Hunters was epic as all hell.

    Watched the first season of the 12 Monkeys tv show. It was okay.

    Started Tales from the Loop on Amazon last night. Very interesting so far.

    What I’m watching now: currently on the great 2000s-2010s sitcom binge rewatch. I don’t watch shows with a laugh track after the 90s other than that 70s show. Animated comedies are going to be sprinkled in between not binged though.
    ✅ Parks and Rec
    ✅Scrubs (seasons 1-8, 9 doesn’t exist)
    Community (2.5/6 seasons in)
    The Office
    Brooklyn 99

    ✅Bojack Horseman
    Bobs Burgers
    Futurama
    King Of The Hill
    Simpsons
    Rick and Morty.

    Josh Gates: Expedition Unknown.

    I find the episodes interesting, exploring a variety of 'mysteries' and adventures. And Josh Gates is entertaining and witty in his commentary and observations. He doesn't take himself too seriously.
