[11/7] Recently Read, Watched, and Listened

Recently Read

This was a week when I *should* have escaped into a book but simply could not.

Recently Watched

Fargo – currently at s4, e7. Ugh, it’s getting tedious for me. This season is far more drawn out than it needs to be. I don’t think we 1) learned anything new, and 2) progressed the story forward in this last episode. 

Star Trek: Discovery – currently at s3 e4. This episode had shades of ABC’s TGIF sitcoms in that everything was tied up really nicely at the end with just a few heart to heart talks. I don’t mean that as a negative but, it did feel too convenient and unrealistic. Also, I don’t think it made sense for Burnham to be in the Trill pool with Adira, witnessing all that.

The Mandalorian – currently at s2 e2. Seeing Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as an X-wing pilot was a nice surprise. Baby Yoda’s love for eggs mirrors my own.

3rd Rock From the Sun – currently at s6 e3. Jan Hooks is still amazing. Just so, so funny all around. Jane Curtin, too. The absurdity of this show is what makes it so funny. I need this juxtaposition against our current reality.

Recently Listened

This week’s rotation included Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Rage Against the Machine, Blackpink, Peggy Gou, and David Bowie.

[Single] “Ohms” by Deftones – Featured on the latest podcast episode of Song Exploder, I didn’t know that the Deftones originated from Sacramento.

[Podcast] Extra Spicy: Food photography is a meritocracy – This is a great conversation with Oriana Koren. I really like her work and have even more respect for it after learning how much research and preparation she puts into it.
