    I'm trying to grind my way through Bly Manor, but man, the more you learn about these ghosts, the less interesting they are.

    I loved the story of Viola, in episode 8. It was a good, old-fashioned, self-contained ghost story.

    Uncle Henry and his alter-ego sadness demon? was a decent yarn too.

    A lot of the rest of the series drags on, though. I didn't need four hours worth of material on Peter & Ms. Jessel, Owen & Ms. Grose, all popping back and forth in time between dreams and reality, because that's how ghosts do. I get it, they're all dead and everyone's sad about things. Just a little of that would have been fine, but they repeated what felt like the same plot revelations two or three times. By the end of the series, I didn't feel like I knew these characters so much as I'd been bludgeoned with them.

    And at the end of things, the framing device of Carla Gugino and a crowd of randos was awkward. One scene at the beginning and one scene at the end, just to drive home the cumbersome point that this was a love story, not a ghost story. I got that from the 9 hours between those two scenes, thanks... if you want a narrator, just have a narrator. Yeesh.

    One of my favorite pastimes during the pandemic (and even before) is going onto Youtube and deliberately jumping into a YouTube trap. I sometimes watch clips of shows I haven't watched in a long time.

    Every single time I see a clip from Punisher I watch it.

    Man that series rocked!

    HOLY SHIT TIME TO RE-UP MY SUB

    Seriously though badass trailer.

    I'm sure it'll be some YA semi-trash, but man what I'd give for this to be an adult-ass show. Face it, your audience is (as the trailer acknowledges) old as dirt. Just make the show for us.

    EDIT: HOLY SHIT TIME TO RE-UP MY SUB

    Masters of the Universe: Revelation is an upcoming American adult animated superhero fantasy streaming television series developed by Kevin Smith

    I've watched the first 2 episodes of this and it's been pretty damn good. If Will Forte doesn't watch out he's going to get typecast as guy who survives the apocalypse.

    I watched Bo Burnham's special Inside tonight, and it was great and I highly recommend it.

    If you're not familiar with Bo Burnham, he's a YouTube comedian who made it big and became a real life comedian, he's recorded a couple specials. This one, he did more or less by himself, in a single room during the pandemic.

    It's funny in a "haha now I'm very depressed" kind of way.

    It's got a 100% on RT (94% audience score) and a 98 on Metacritic, so I'm not just blowing smoke up your ass here. It's beautiful, introspective, dark, funny, and very sad.

    I've started watching an old series called Longmire.

    It's about a sheriff in a small county in Wyoming. After a few episodes you'd think that this small county is deadlier than Detroit because there's a murder every episode, but the characters are strong and the plots are fun. Oh, and Starbuck is a deputy.

    Longmire is one Netflix keeps throwing at me and I haven't bit yet. Similarly they've been hounding me with Lupin, which I just started and really like.
