    I watched the move Glass.

    Not really a binge experience but it's a top tier winner from beginning to end. There are few movies that I think were flawlessly executed but this is one. It was a better super hero than anything else I've seen since the Heath Ledger joker Batman and they did it on a tiny fraction of the production cost and without all the convoluted nonsense.

    It's a winner.

    I just really couldn't help but laugh about the new CW superhero TV show.

    STARGIRL: The story of a teenage cheerleader and her magic stripper pole. I wish I was making this up. I've seen enough dancing girls to know her fight moves are going to be stripper based. There's only so much a girl can do with a magic pole.

    Oh, that makes more sense. Castle Rock, duh, of course he is (or at least a derivative or minion). I should probably watch that show, sometime.
    Man, we're both huge King fans. You will dig it. The story of Annie Wilkes will tear your heart out though. Lizzy Caplan did an amazing job at recreating the character. After the character was fleshed out more in the story, she reminded me a lot of my mom to be honest. It was a cathartic for me and a real tribute to King's universe.

    It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been renewed for their 15th season.

    I got my magnum condoms and my wad of hundreds ready.

    Oh, I was talking about "the Kid" on Castle Rock. Sorry, I'm as clear as mud about half the time.

    Maybe even Flagg, himself? 3 sides of the same coin.

    You're talking about the younger brother, yes? It's been so long that I don't remember how things ended up with him and his older brother and Sylar. There was definitely a lot of play into who was good and who was bad, which was very interesting. All three of them could have been considered righteous, at some point.

    Whatever Flagg's iteration was, he was always evil. I think that separates the character enough to not be part of this Kring thing, but there are always homages and stuff at a higher level, so maybe that's part of the charm.

    LOL King, Kring...

    Heroes Season 1 was great. After that, they got lost in a never ending branching timeline, time travel plot. After S1 they couldn't seem to nail down the direction they wanted to take the characters or plot. They leaned way too heavily on deus ex machina and sometimes just left plot lines dangling with no good resolution and huge alterations in character personalities. Honestly, it all started to feel a little schizophrenic.
    I liked the whole first series, the second series I couldn't get into.

    That being said, I will take your notes into consideration while I re-watch.

    Here's a recap of what I've done since finishing Expanse:

    1. Discovery - solid retake on the franchise, I will pick it back up when third season is out, later this year.
    2. Picard - I'm 50/50 on this. Started great, then got kinda slow, then finished strong. Will definitely try second season.
    3. The Night Shift - I'm finishing up S3, right now. This is a medical dramcom that ran 4 seasons on NBC. Currently on Netflix. It's a guilty sweet spot for me, almost poorly written, very soapy, but with realistic blood and gore, and lots of medical-sounding technobabble. I enjoy the Texas setting as an actual character in the show. Elevator pitch: this is every nighttime medical dramcom ever done, except updated with new and better FX, and centered around the Texas active and reservist military community. Also, a completely different soundtrack. So far, they haven't played "How to Save a Life," so that's a bonus.

    Wife and kids are doing entire MCU again (except the Deadpools, those are mine), I think this is their 3rd time through. I've talked them into watching Heroes as a family effort, maybe start that next week.
