The Dog FRIDAYS Are Over!
« on: October 08, 2020, 10:03:15 PM »
Wrapped up my trial today, so its time to relax a bit.

DCS, Star Citizen Alpha 3.11, ARMA 3, Steel Division II and Star Wars Squadrons...

Hope everyone gets a chance to take a break from our crazy little world and enjoy some gaming!

Haven't gamed in a week. Hope to finish up Outlast, maybe some Total War: Warhammer, and perhaps Vampyre.

Continuing through the MP Dominions 5 games I'm in, with some Stellaris mixed in.  It's going to be a wet weekend where I'm at, so perhaps I'll see a little more screen time than normal.

I'm finally all caught up with the Expanse, and am waiting for season 5 to come out.  Man, it's definitely one of the best sci-fi series, period.  Anybody remotely interested in the genre, with a very realistic and gritty depiction of humanity's expansion through the solar system and the problems that come with it will enjoy.

^I can't believe The Expanse going on its fifth season already.

A to the Men.  I think this is the one and only series I've sat down and actively watched in years - otherwise episodic TV can go pound sand in my opinion.

Haven't seen Penny Dreadful, but Peaky's for sure.  They've got the "slow-mo cast walk toward the camera while shit blows up/burns behind them while bomb-ass music plays," down pat.

My issue with episodic TV is a personal one, but I just find it boring after a bit and feel like I could be doing something better with my time.  I'm fine watching sports, movies and the odd regular TV stuff here and there, but otherwise, I'd rather being "doing," something myself than passively watching other people do things, if that makes sense.  I'm an odd duck.

I've read all of The Expanse books.   The show live up to the books?

I hear you Carl, I've become more that way myself as I get older. I get fidgety. But if I am watching something of quality, then that happens less.

In my humble opinion, yes, the show lives up to the books.  It's not an exact copy of the books but the essentials elements, plots, characters, etc. are there.

Busy weekend having Hurricane Shutters installed, inspected, then taken down and stored. At some point I'll pay for them.  ;)   I like. 'Narcos' on Netflix though most of it is in Spanish with subtitles. Very Peaky Blinders-ish but based on actual events. Have a great weekend Grogs!

^I've heard good things about Narcos but have not seen it.

Peaky Blinders is based on real people and real events.
