Brace Yourself

I don’t believe any explanation is required here.

If you haven’t seen these, do yourself a favor and just relax and enjoy the Bean.

We finished the Mr. Bean’s original shorts on October 29, 2017.

Poldark (2015)

We finished the first series of Poldark on May 17th of this year.

We had taken a break about halfway through the season, reaching the point where most of the characters are in a state of general happiness.

What does that mean? When everyone’s happen you KNOW things will go wrong. Terrible wrong. Inexplicably wrong.

That did happen, but it was worth the watch. A view of the time period through the eyes of investment and commerce and how those things affect not only the individual but the entire community was a different angle on this type of drama and I really appreciated that.

A disappointing finale (ruined by the last scene, which reminded and summed up the negatives we had felt throughout the season) pointed in a direction that meant Currer and I won’t be continuing the series but as I said – it was worth it.

 

Mystery Science Theater 3000 – The Return

The Mystery Science Theater 3000 reboot on Netflix gave me just what I needed, when I needed it.

Work had been overwhelming and to be able to come home late and listen to the MST3K crew was perfect; Reptilicus (1961), Cry Wilderness (1987) and The Christmas That Almost Wasn’t (1966) were my favorites.

I watched the last one of this first reboot season, At the Earth’s Core (1976), on May 16th of this year.

Voltron: Legendary Defender, Season 2

Voltron Legendary Defender season 2

I finished the second season of Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender on January 22, 2017.

This season was better than the first (which is saying something), with the action moving quicker – season two had a few more episodes but it felt shorter than the season before it.

When Hagar asks for Price Lotor and the end of the season’s final episode … I didn’t quite get chills but it was awesome.
