After finishing the mediocre Iron FIst, I worked on getting caught up on The Magicians last night, as I was a few episodes behind. That show is so hilariously kooky. It's almost assuredly not something everyone will enjoy as much as I do, but I really love it.

My wife was not at all enthusiastic about watching "a time travel show" but I forced her to watch Making History last night and she admitted she liked it. We're 2 in and have 1 on the queue.

I've never once seen this show and have no interest whatsoever despite (or because?) seemingly seeing hours worth of promos. But this is fun.

Awesome. Also completely uninterested in that show, but Goodfellas is one of my favorite movies ever.

Caught up. How horsefeathering good is Aubrey Plaza in this show?

Spoiler: show
I don't want the same villain in future seasons, but it will be a real shame to lose her on this show.

For anyone who didn't already know, the first episode of Brockmire is on Funny or Die

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I liked the first 5 episodes, then it all sort of fell apart for me. I made it to the end. It wasn't terrible, but it was missing something. It reminded me of a WB DC show like Arrow.

Watching 10+ more horsefeathering hours of Iron Fist honestly seems like punishment for something terrible I didn't even do. fullback this character until he shows up in another show.

Is it just me or was Legion's season finale a "let down"?

I liked it. I think the bar was set pretty high the last few weeks, but tonight was close. It has me excited for next season.

That said, last week was one of the best things I've seen on TV in a long while. The musical sequence done in silent movie style when Lenny squashed Walter was incredible.

She steals the show. Could not agree more. She is very fun to look at, too.
