Yes, I Still Watch Cartoons, and So Should You

Specifically, I am going to recommend you take the time to watch "Trollhunters" currently available for streaming on Netflix. Don't be fooled, just because this is a cartoon on Netflix, it doesn't mean you should ignore it or relegate it to the "kids" section. Especially if you've enjoyed such other cartoons as "Gargoyles," "Batman: The Animated Series," or "Family Guy."

You Should Be Watching 'Lethal Weapon'

That is, if you aren't already. Obviously, I'm talking about the new series on FOX, and not the venerable movie franchise. Although, I highly recommend you watch those films as well.

This new series, starring Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans is fantastic. It was really a surprise to both my wife and I how much we have come to really enjoy this show.

Sherlock Season 4 Finale

I just finished the Sherlock finale. I ended up buying the episode on Amazon because my dvr didn't record it and I didn't want to wait until next week when the episode airs again. Now I feel guilty and may have to donate some funds to PBS. But, that will only happen after I recover from the finale.

Some News Links I Liked Today (1/16/17)

Let's get things started with someone I am particularly excited to see this year, from Netflix comes "The Defenders." Read about it over on /Film here.

New Releases This Week (1/16-1/20)

You're going to hear a bunch about the Box Office returns over the weekend from everyone who has anything to say about films. I'm just going to skip that part and tell you what new films you can expect to hit theaters this week - so you can plan your date night(s) accordingly.

The woman I love, and the team she loves.

It isn't fair to call this odd, let's just say that it is unconventional. My wife loves to watch her Patriots play football. I, on the other hand, am not that much into sports. Never have been. So, it was odd when I was told that during the regular season, game days were off limits. It is still kind of odd now, a few years later.

Have you heard of "Beyond"?

I wouldn't blame you if you said, "No." It is a new series on FreeForm (the cable channel formerly known as ABC Family). The are airing the episodes weekly (Monday's at 9:00pm, check your local listings to confirm), but they've also made the entire first season available to watch at once via their FreeForm app or website. That, my friends, is what sold me.

Some News Links I liked today (1/12/17)

From time to time I'll be able to spend some time catching up on world events. (read: entertainment news, or happy puppy videos) and so as a public service if I really like what I found, I'll share them with you.

What I'm Watching

You're not going to believe this, but I'm updating this blog again because of my mother. She reached out to me the other day stating that I haven't updated it in almost a year. I told her that I was having trouble coming up with the motivation to keep going, and since she was the only one who reads it, there was no real big sense of urgency. Well, that was all I needed to get the thoughts flowing again.

It turns out that I need some kind of an outlet, and Facebook just isn't going to cut it. So, I'm going to post here and I am not going to limit myself to posting about just one particular thing. It is going to be posts on a range of various different topics.

Let's go ahead and get started.
