We're watching Wednesday, and I'm not sure about it yet. I don't love the vitriol from Wednesday to her parents. Is it a teenager thing? I don't remember her ever being like that to her parents before. I love the casting of Catherine Zeta and Luis Guzman, but since the show is from Wednesday's POV, they make her parents look kind of like assholes. I don't know, I'm just not getting it so far. Am I too old?

Iíve been enjoying Wednesday Drew Outcast School Detective.

The relationship between Wednesday and Morticia is much changed. Iím hoping they chose to do that so Wednesday can grow to understand her parents some and appreciate them.

Perhaps this is just an angsty time in Wednesdayís life.

I like how dark they are making Wednesday and Iím here for wherever it goes.

(The shift in relationship tone is bit jarring, like I first thought they were joking, especially if you are thinking Ricci/Huston, but I head canon that they used to be closer and will be again one day)

Also we watched


By the motherfuckers that brought you Dark. Itís fucking good.

Also, watch it English subtitled if you can handle reading subtitles. Many of the characters speak languages that most of the other passengers donít speak with some characters fluent in multiple languages.

So people talk around and to people who donít understand them, subtitles help you keep that in mind.

I really, really liked it. I will watch it again. Much like Dark, the show warrants at least a second viewing.

Looking forward to the next season.

So I also watched Wednesday. I enjoyed it well enough, I guess. Jenna Ortega does a great job in the main role, and her goth dance pastiche to The Cramps is fun. But the story has a bunch of things I find fairly unsatisfying, so somewhere mid-tier for me.

I haven't gone all the way through it yet, but that's about right.

Some of the casting/writing/directing isn't where I think it could be. But then, the other characters aren't really why I'm watching the show. Ortega p much solos and is why you're watching.

It's on Amazon Prime, but last night I watched "It's a Wonderful Afterlife." It's an Indian romantic comedy set in England, and it was a lot of fun. (Of course, i'm easily amused.)
