I wanted to like this show. I really wanted it to be good. I like the idea of a woman pitching in the big leagues. I would love to see that in real life.
But this show did not make it seem plausible. It didn’t even make the effort to make such a potential historical event seem like something that could actually happen. Instead, no reality was suspended and it felt like some made for TV Disney Channel movie. There were some bits of reality to it but way too much fantasy to make this show worth watching.
The idea of a woman pitching in the big leagues isn’t something that I think will never happen. I would love to see it. But Fox (yeah, my employer) did not do a great job of portraying that reality. Instead they gave us a premise with little to no background and a reality I could not live with.
I didn’t even know this existed. Only in passing did I see an article on it saying it pays homage to so many movies from the 1980s. Naturally, I was intrigued. It was only when I was browsing my Netflix did I see it and read the plot of the story. Well, eight episodes, I can do that in a few days.
I did it all in one day.
Oh man was this good. It was a little bit of everything. I wanted to continue watching, seeing what craziness could come from it. I won’t spoil it, but the cool E.T. and Stephen King type drama in this film was perfect. Oh yes, you should watch it. Do it now! And I hear season two is guaranteed. YES!!!!
I got a GOFOBO to see the first episode (at least) of the new show Fuller House. As you know, this is a continuation of the original Full House. The entire original cast (minus the Olsen Twins) reprise their roles on the show. It’s a Netflix original and I was excited to check it out. I grew up watching the show and the nostalgia would be great.
As I got to the Grove, I would realize that it was actually the red carpet world premiere. There were media and a red carpet. The line was long so I had to quickly get in line. But still, it was awesome to see John Stamos walk by and then acknowledge us later.
PHOTOS I TOOK AT THE PREMIERE
I finally watched the first episode of 11.22.63. This as you know is based off the Stephen King book about preventing JFK’s assassination. It is my favorite book from King. I had dreamed of it being a movie but I knew with so much detail it would best be served as a series. Now it’s here on Hulu and I love it.
Of course as I am watching this I have to judge this and compare it to the book. So far, all the important details remain the same. There are some name changes and time changes but that doesn’t affect the story at all. Instead we get a real riveting adaptation of the book in visual form. What I like most about it is that because I already know the story, I can anticipate what happens next and still get excited to see how it unfolds.
It sucks that I have to wait until next week to watch but it will be worth it. I hope people like it. The book is good and I hope the show does it justice.
This is my favorite Stephen King book of all time. Plus since you know I am obsessed with JFK assassination theories, this is perfect.
I love the book so much I might need to read it again.
This trailer is really promising. I have time when this comes out. I will binge it all!
You all know I am a huge Seinfeld fan. So when I found out they were going to recreate the apartment out in Hollywood, I had to go there. The wait of course would be long for this free event but I didn’t care. I had to go. I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. And let me tell you, it was worth it!
The exhibit was to open at 10AM but I knew that with the popularity of the show with its revival with Hulu, I had to get there somewhat early. I got in line at around 9:15AM. It would take me about 90 minutes in line before I could get in. By noon time, the line was a four-hour wait.
As I walked in, I was greeted by a ton of famous quotes from the show. True fans would recognize each and every one of them. In front was the booth from Monk’s on display.

Growing up as a kid, there were two main late night talk show hosts that I could have watched. One was Jay Leno who the American public deemed to be great. I never thought he was great. The other was David Letterman, who was really odd many times and never had the top guests in comparison to Leno. I gravitated toward Letterman because I was weird too.
There were so many things about Letterman’s comedy that stood out to me. As you can see above, the Top 10 list was something that was so silly yet I wanted more of it. I loved Biff Henderson’s weird adventures and Rupert Jee’s willingness to do silly things with Dave. Even stupid human tricks and Will it Float were segments that probably was so lame for the average viewer, yet it was great for me.
What made Letterman funny to me was that he didn’t seem to be too serious. When it came to Leno, he kept it safe and really worked hard to keep whatever movie or album promotion as the focus. But for Letterman, he really just had a conversation with the guests and they truly seemed to enjoy hanging with him.
