Month: April 2023

I mainly watch shows after the season airs and binge them afterwards. This can be good because I find myself invested like I would a book or movie. I do want to give weekly show drops a chance to see if it’s better.

Weekly Watching:

“The Mandalorian” Season 3 – I like adding Bo Katan (Katee Sackhoff) as an addition. I watched Battlestar Galactica and Sackhoff’s acting on that was good even though she often plays characters who are emotionally limited which is common in sci-fi. This show benefits from having more than Din and Grogu, but I don’t find myself particularly enamored with the Star Wars shows as world building so much as the characters, the acting, and in this show’s unique case, the puppetry.

“Ted Lasso” Season 3 – Seeing as this is the last season, I wanted to see if it would be good week to week.

The Red Scare: A Graphic Novel by Liam Francis Walsh

A nice little graphic novel. I like graphic novels now as a breather between other books. I especially like to read and finish one after a work day. This is very much a YA novel with protagonists who are immature. I did like that the main character is called out on it and there is an element of sci-fi fun to it.

3/5 stars. Read March 16, 2023.

Ella Minow Pea: A Novel in Letters by Mark Dunn

I generally like short epistolary novels like this. This was a subversive novel which bordered on being twee at times. It was interesting. I can see being polarizing though. I really liked it because it was creative and I enjoyed the characters. It had a couple of sad and dark moments, but it was generally an easy and satisfying read.

3.5/5 stars. Read March 27-29, 2023.
