Probably because he's always been bald and therefore already looked a little ageless. :) Douglas, on the other hand, had been sick for a while a few years ago and I think that aged him rapidly from...

So, last night and today I FINALLY revamped my office space to make room for using my VR headset again. You can tell by the marks on the carpet where the desk USED to be. I gave a good 4-5 feet...

Westworld: Season III

Re: Westworld: Season III

Such an amazingly different feel in each season, especially this one. Gonna love the storyline (and it already looks difficult to follow, ha ha), but wow, we've come a long way from the Old West in...

Re: The Kominsky Method

Love this show. Consistently good banter, and Douglas and Arkin have a great chemistry. It flies under the radar but is well worth the time.

Re: Locke and Key

Just finished season 1 last night. Binged it on computer monitor #2 while putzing around online on computer monitor #1. Two episodes were on the big-ass TV downstairs last evening.

I've not read...

This is Us

Re: This is Us

It was a bit of a letdown, wasn't it? I felt like we really didn't get any new information about anybody -- we just got a lot of scenes playing out things we already mostly know.

And I'm glad I...

Ah, but from my perspective (one with semi-serious issues with heights and vertigo/motion sickness), this has been one of the few VR games that charmed me instead of scared me. I have to get back to...

Ha! The guy/cop who went into the barn after everybody left, and who is currently transforming into, well, something else. :D

Re: The Outsider (HBO series)

Yeah, we're definitely hip-deep in Stephen King territory now. And this is where I become more guarded in my optimism that it'll continue being as enthralling as it's been so far. Because I can smell...

Re: Danielewski attempting to bring House of Leaves to the small scree

Now I want to reread this book. :) At the very least, I was so busy paying attention to the layout that I remember only the basics of the actual storyline. :D

Re: Emergence

Ahhh... it might be ABC then. I had their livestream of the Oscars cut out on me multiple times, for no apparent reason.

Re: Danielewski attempting to bring House of Leaves to the small scree

I immediately got excited by this, and then I had to wonder... Having read the book and enjoyed the outstanding use of typesetting, HOW in the world can this ever begin to translate to the screen?...

Re: 12 Mildly Disgrunted People

Well, the second jury I served on was only a few years ago. The same lack of logic skills and tendency to want to just acquit and go home showed up then too. Thankfully, though, we were mostly on the...

Re: 12 Mildly Disgrunted People

True. My being pregnant would, I'm sure, have made the defense attorney think I might be harsher. But honestly, the wishy-washy folks in that jury room were all over the demographical map: old women,...

Yoda comes by his logical-juror skills genetically. I have my own "12 Angry Men" story of my first jury duty, back when Yoda was just a toddler. It really was way too much like the movie. I was...

Well, I skimmed a bunch of these posts because I'm only up to episode 2. I'm delighted to say this does NOT feel like most other King adaptations. It's compelling so far. Unfortunately I watched the...
