Haunting of Hill House - OMG - killed the season this weekend. Loved It. If you like creepy/scary this show was great.

So got almost nothing else watched. SIGH

Except some Insecure that I am behind on - but don't think any one here watches that. I'll be catching up this week though.

I keep seeing the promotions on Netflix for Haunting. Not too big on horror stuff (besides AHS lol) but maybe. Just so much else to keep on track of. I am watching Iron Fist even though it was cancelled...The show is out, but I'm sure the character isn't. lol

MJ said...

Iron Fist - yeah they said the character can still occur on other shows. Read about the cancellation yesterday too.

AHS - watched the one with the Warlocks. And they visited the Cortez and got Queenie ! Hello Hotel. LOL Hadn't heard they'd reference that season. Didn't remember Cordelia almost killing Madison have to admit.

Mike V. said...

Iron Fist - yeah apparently there's a comic thread where Luke Cage and Iron Fist team up and fight crime so people are begging for that to happen as its own show. There's a name for their duo but I can't remember.

AHS - yeah they seem to be tying in a lot in this season from past seasons. Pretty cool. I can't remember who was still alive after the COVEN season. lol Looking forward to this week's ep.

2 behind on Shameless and Manifest now. There's just not enough time in the week! Walking dead and recapping is throwing me off! lol

Star Wars related, but not sure I get it. Richard

LOL the kid requested his eggs to look like a TIE Fighter and then he asked her to hum Vader's theme while she brought it to him. Coincidentally, my wife had bought star wars cooking/baking shapes before my kids were born and used to make me yoda and darth vader pancakes. lol Now of course we can't find them and I'd love to do the same for my kids!

Did I pass on the news about THE MANDOLORIAN? Surely I did. It'll be the Disney Streaming App's first Star Wars streaming offering next fall (outside of finishing up the Clone Wars animated show and other Marvel character 1-off features like Scarlet Witch and Loki). With Jon Favreau writing and the directors they have lined up I'm pretty excited about that.

Hobbit home - this is adorable ! And not that far - in Fairfield Va.

OMG - Heard they are rebooting Grimm with a female Grimm this time.

Manifest - Up to date so don't read. Knew we'd meet Danny at some point. What confused me is that Olive called Danny and her mom cause she didn't want her dad to find out ? Why call the mom then ? Whatevs. Statue thing was cool - was that where we saw Olive make her plane into a boat ? Same fountain ? At this point shouldn't Michaela realize that when she hears the voice ' same him' that she should wait to find out WHO the 'he' is ? LOL Just saying.

Bodyguard - a brit show coming to Netflix. I heard it was a HUGE hit across the pond and that Netflix picked it up. Guess who is starring in it ? Robb Stark !

Shameless - am very far behind # now with having watched last night so not spoil for you. Just saw the one where Franks candidate - Mo White - which crackes me up everytime they say it - is outed as a perv. And Fiona goes all in on some land deal which I can tell already will go badly. And Deb now thinks she is gay. LOL I know another character is leaving besides Fiona - not sure if it is a spoil or not. I know this past week was his last. I think we discussed but won't mention names in case I am wrong.

Million Little things - def a This is Us version of The Big Chill but liking it alot.

MJ said...

Connors - didn't watch but read how the killed her. Don't read if not watched - it would have been funny to have her die of Ambien overdose. Just saying. LOL


Mike V. said...

Conners - I watched and funny lol It was pretty much the worst kept secret in television! The episode was aight. Don't know if I'll keep up with it though.

Hobbit - that's hilarious. lol The people dressed up in the photos is the icing on the cake!

Grimm - I'm out! lol

Manifest - yep, definitely not up to date. No idea when we'll be able to watch.

Bodyguard - I'm intrigued. This is not a televised version of the Whitney/Costner movie is it? lol

Shameless - Still 2 behind but I've seen what you saw! I know the other character as well. I think I might have brought it up in the last 200 comment post. I was confused because Gotham is ending this season too. It seems like in these past 2 eps he might already be gone, but I'm just getting that vibe from headlines I've seen. I see you saw the same headlines as me. lol

Million Little Things - ugh...was intrigued by that one but did not take the bait!

This is Us - Vietnam episode last night. It was an episode told in reverse until the last moment. seems like we'll be seeing more in 'Nam eventually.

MJ said...

This is Us - Two weeks behind but caught up now. Just how is Randall running for City Council in a city and state he does not reside in ? He owns a building - but is not a resident. And Noooo ! Not a story I really care to watch. Thought the building thing would be bad. SIGH. Loved the flash back to Beth and Randalls Bio dad (name eluding me) - he really did know her !

And really - fly to California to say sorry ? Jack was always over the top with his antics but Randall is just kinda ridiculous. Jack was at least the 'take some lemons and make lemonade' type - Randall is just kinda nuts. LOL Well - at least both Kate an Randall were actually wrong and right.

I liked Rebecca's old boyfriend - liked his mom even more.

I knew Jack wasn't a mechanic in the war ! But really - you join the war just to go be with your brother ? That's a really big stretch - even for this show. Nice to learn that jack learned his calming technique from a buddy in the war - and that he always had a heart problem. Now someone needs to tell Kate ! And why the big deal about 10/18 ? They were calling 365 numbers - meaning every day of the year was being called. If he'd been born on the 19th he was still being called. Sure not as soon - but still being called.

Bodyguard - def not ! LOL

I had two cousins who were brothers who joined together during Vietnam. But, they got split up at some point.

Keep in mind Vietnam was very different early on vs later!!! Major difference in those serving! Draft vs Volunteer, etc.

Richard

Mike V. said...

Bodyguard - I figured, but had to ask! LOL

This is Us - Yeah this was a scenario where the younger brother got drafted and the older brother volunteered. We already know Jack is made out to be Superman so is it that shocking? lol We're learning his origin story! :) The Fly to California episde was definitely a stretch! But when you think you got money, I guess it's plausible. Randall's life is about to turn upside down with the layoff. Were they calling 365 numbers for the draft? I never knew how the draft worked until watching this episode but it looks like they called random dates of the year and people with those birthdays were drafted. If they called 365 dates then everyone over 18 would have been drafted into the war! lol

Good Place - I haven't laughed so hard in awhile. The whole Jeremy Berrimy thing was the funniest thing on television in like forever. Making fun of timeline stuff hit on so many different levels. lol And then the fallout from the fab 4 finding out their life is meaningless was hilarious especially Chidi's reaction. lol The pink t-shirt and the chili were fabulous. This may go down as one of the greatest Good Place eps.

Iron Fist - Trudging along. Daredevil is out and I just want to skip to that. But I'll do my duty! lol

MJ said...

This is Us - I was surprised too. But they said they are calling 365 and Jack hypothesized hat only the first 200 actually get taken.

Good Place - heard might be funniest ep ever. I need to catch up on this and AHS. Maybe sunday since the NY Stinkers are playing Monday. LOL

Fist - I might skip that one. Will watch Daredevil but not any time soon

Flash - watched first 2. Pretty good. The search for Caitlyn's dad will annoy. Cause I honestly don't care. Nora really is not good about keeping the future a secret. Liked Block actually. And hungover Cisco ! And Joe's secret lounge !

Mike V. said...

This is Us - Ahh gotcha. I may have missed that detail. But yeah that doesn't make any sense. lol

Good Place - I'll hold off on additional comments, but I loved it. Don't want to oversell. The laughs came out of nowhere and then just were relentless. lol (for me)

Flash - yeah don't care at all about Caitlyn's story. Like I mentioned before I'd only care of barry, Cisco, joe or Harry left the show. lol The secret lounge was a good time!
