Lovecraft Country

Ok, HBO. That first episode was pretty strong. I am interested!

Watchmen was a nice surprise. I hope this one is too.

Agreed, I'm a big fan.  Honestly, I didn't even need the creatures and mansion, though I am sure they'll add intrigue.  The sense of total foreboding, of setting out into a hostile and uncharted world was palpable, all the more so because it's actually a world I am comfortable in but the characters were not.  It's done more to take me out of myself than most horror/fantasy I've seen recently, and I'm a genre devotee.  Full marks.

That they should so handily embrace the mythos and confront the bigot who wrote it is an added narrative benefit.  There could not have been a better moment for this show, and it wears its timeliness with confidence.

Also, and please don't let this distract from the above, Jurnee Smollett is hot.

My sainted mother is visiting from Marthas Vineyard, so I've been showing her a few old films.  Last night we watched The Black Cat (1934), which stars Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff.  Both men were at

That's a good one. I thought about A Bridge Too Far but it's too big of a cast. Now thinking of this:  

Yup, it is there in the on right side of the white buildings in the center.

I liked it too, though I don't know WTF is going on. Great acting, strong script, good characters. 

Ready for episode 2.

Rising Phoenix 

 

Touches us on so many levels as our very good friend and former Russian and Italian Olympic fencing coach at one time stepped in to coach Italian paralympic athletes when their coach bailed on them.  Eventually his athletes medaled and set many individual records. Defines what real challenge and dedication to life's goals is all about.

Both seasons of The Umbrella Academy (Netflix), Absolutely fantastic! Everything a sci-fi/superhero ensemble franchise should be. Very well produced on all levels, and fresh. Highly recommended for fans of this genre.

Agreed. Enjoyed and it got better as the season progressed (at least until I lost Apple+). I'm sure sports fans are aware of the series origins, but I didn't until YouTube suggested. From seven years ago...
