Re: The Watching Thread #4

I watched Captain Marvel a couple of weeks ago. Samuel L. Jackson and Jude Law really helped make that movie. Brie Larson couldn't be more wooden an uninteresting if she were medicated. Other than that, I've been cruising through The Americans . The latest episode I watched is where Frank Gadd was a...

^He's still polling good and he's reportedly getting more donations than anyone else. The media clearly does not like him though and might be a problem. Which is weird as during the last election he was the hero who was going to save us all from the evil of Hillary Clinton. Where are you seeing tha...

Re: Check-In #98: How have you been?

:coffee: I'm at Dulles (we left the house early), it's rainy, and I need coffee. I'm waiting for coffee service on the plane. The flight time was bumped up to 10am while the departure gate location was changed twice. I'm seeing many people from yesterday arriving, so let's hope today is not a bust.

Re: Check-In #98: How have you been?

Flight was canceled until 11am tomorrow. The airline gave us meal and hotel vouchers. I called Beth to go crash at her place tonight. Seems the flight crew is stuck in North Carolina due to a maintenance issue (the altimeter on their plane is faulty).

*sigh* :(

Re: Check-In #98: How have you been?

Barely made it to Dulles after 4pm and was sweating bullets about making it to the gate in time for my 5:15pm boarding. I made it in time and nestled in for a 35-minute wait. At 5:10pm, it was announced we needed a flight crew and that our flight has been delayed until 6:30pm. :no:

I hate that everything has to be "dark" these days.
The people behind Picard are using it as an allegory to reflect the current times much like TOS did. Other than that, you're right. I had the same complaint about everything in the 80s & 90s being dystopian in nature.

Re: The Watching Thread #4

My recent watches via Netflix DVD: Green Book , Bumblebee , Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindenwald , and the continuing story of The Americans . I don't really find the Harry Potter universe very interesting. I've watched those movies out of mild curiosity and to have them on as a distraction. ...
