Earlier today, I watched last year's Christmas animated movie Klaus, and while good, I felt the first 30 minutes were fairly dark and mean-spirited, enough to the point of feeling like it wouldn't be good for kids. Eventually it warms up, but it really takes its time getting there.

Apparently I’m the only person who thought “Death to 2020” was pretty funny. :shrug:

I watched Midnight Sky today, despite the copious reviews warning me not to. It was... fine.

Finished all the Kim’s Convenience available on Netflix.

What a truly delightful show. Need more!

Kim’s Convenience Is amazing. Thumbs up from me.

Midnight Sky I “watched” while doing other things, so I didn’t really follow it. Seemed odd, but maybe good. I want to go back and rewatch it while paying attention. Not really able to score it yet.

Klaus was pretty good. I watched it the other day, and found it pretty funny, even during the dark beginning. The animation style isn’t my favorite, but I still enjoyed the film.

Cobra Kai is fantastic. I’m excited for the new season. As soon as my kids go back to school, I’ll be watching it (nothing else to do as an empty nester during covid times).

Derry Girls seems pretty funny so far. I’ve only seen the first two episodes, though.

You might like Corner Gas, another great Canadian sitcom. It's one of my favourites with great characters.

I just watched the Netflix remake of Papillon and was pretty impressed. They did a great job with that one.

I watched two episodes of Alice in Borderlands and well it's batshit insane. I think my wife is bowing out due to the extreme violence. The second episode was slightly violent. ;)

Anything with "Borderland" in the title is probably going to be far less batshit insane and violent than I have been conditioned to expect from that particular term. :coffee:

Really late to the party, but I'm about halfway through Maniac now and just loving it. Gives a Brazil vibe, which is a pretty rare thing.

I love me some Disenchantment. Elfo is the laziest name in cartoons in ages...but that's one of the reasons his character is so great.

From the second episode. I would say you may be wrong. I'm kind of scared to see what they do in episode 3.

Yes to Elfo, although Bender would have been in the running if they hadn't added his surname.

I'm looking forward to getting back to this on Friday.

I really wish Disenchantment had included a recap. It's been long enough that I have no idea what's going on.

Back to this again! It's almost like the writers read OO and made a late addition to the script:
Spoiler:
The name's "O"; Elf O. :D

I didn't really see it as a spoiler, so no harm in my opinion.

Luci's "What's up, Tater" line in the first episode was so dumb it made me laugh. But yeah, the show is still fun.

As for a recap, an almost 4 minute long one played before I could start season 3. So there is one.

Really? It went straight into the intro, then straight into them standing in a pit for me.

I believe if you started it before at any point, or someone else did on your account, Netflix drops the recap on future watches. At least that's what happened when I just tried it again after already starting it. Which makes sense. You don't wanna watch the recap every time you start the show.

But in any case, here's a written recap which should get you back up to speed.

In other news, I made it 45 minutes into Outside the Wire before I gave up. For a movie about robots and war, it’s just boring. It wants to raise questions about what makes us human....but it does so by just rehashing the stories from the 2,378 films that have tried to do the same before it.

Go Karts is almost a blatant copy of The Karate Kid in some places, down to the unorthodox training methods, and I could have sworn some of the dialogue was straight-out lifted, but other than that, not a bad movie.

It's the random non-sequitur stuff in this show that has me laughing the most. Well that, and every time the Jester says "Oh no..."
