    Two of my favorite shows from the late 70s are on Tubi now. Battlestar Galactica, and Buck Rogers. The former was worthy of a gritty reboot, and I'd love it if someone would do a modern version of the latter. Just with less spandex...

    Yea, I really loved Battlestar Galactica. Couldn't believe when it was cancelled! The reboot was great

    Erin Grey in spandex was the only reason I ever watched Buck Rogers.

    Oh come on. There were so many other good reasons! Like...um...Pamela Hensley in a bikini. Markie Post in spandex. Uh...other guest stars in spandex!

    Okay, seriously...back in the day I read the source material for Buck Rogers. Philip Francis Nowlan's "Armageddon 2419." Pulp science fiction, but it had some interesting stuff in there. For example, the evil empire (the Hans) had a society where people would get all their information and entertainment in big, flat screens in their homes. Not only that, but they could use those screens to order any number of products, have them delivered to their door, and the money would be electronically withdrawn from their accounts. What a crazy view of how the future would be, huh?

    I had no intention of watching so much as one episode of this, whatever it is. But it came down to this or getting up and being productive so I gave it a try. It's really not so bad. Only three episodes so far but I'll give it a provisional 7/10. I can say it's the second best musical I've ever seen.

    What We Do In The Shadows 7/10

    It is so stupid, but funny, that it draws you in and keep watching. I missed part of the pilot so I don't know the full setup, but it is filmed kind of like a documentary crew following a group of vampires in Staten Island. They are weird and quite a bit out of touch. One of them is an 'energy vampire' who is not affected by sunlight, and feeds off of emotions of frustration and boredom which he is very good at inflicting on others. And there is the human familiar, a servant who hopes to be turned into a vampire as a reward for his long service, but is pretty much taken for granted. Quite an impressive list of guest stars have appeared in it as well. Season three is supposed to be out in september, can't wait to see it after how season two ended.

    Loki

    So finished Episode Six of Loki which starts off where Endgame leaves him, a benefactor of an angry stairs maddened Hulk. It shares a bit with Wandavision in that it has its own timeline style, setting feels like the 60s/70s. A bunch of twists and turns. The trouble I have with Loki is he just rarely ever grows. Being the God of Mischief in several movies, I start getting a Game of Thrones feel that "I shouldn't get too comfortable" with this character, because the head is likely to fall off, or in Loki's case, you just keep waiting for the inevitable. As a series, it feels bit under the other two series which had viable completions where as Loki appears to continue. There is good humor here and there (especially there... and when you get to it, you'll know what I'm talk about). Very enjoyable.
