Binge watched Jessica Jones over the weekend. Though I didn't like it quite as much as Daredevil, I still thought it was pretty good.

Skye was annoying in the beginning, but then they gave her powers... and now it's similar to Heroes Reborn. Inhumans/EVOs!

Been rewatching S2 'Rick and Morty'.

...man, but "Mortynight Run" is pretty rough. Extraordinarily funny, but they really just pile sh*t on Morty, don't they. You laugh, and kind of feel bad for laughing, and then go on laughing regardless.

Kind of been marathoning 'We Bare Bears'. Panda is favourite character. (I appreciate the irony.)

Ice Bear is rad. Which makes him kind of unrelatable.

Panda is kind of whiney and gloomy and weird. Socially maladroit. Nervous around ladies. Neurotic. Shorter than all his relatives. Awkward and retiring. Bigtime weeaboo. Unspeakable internet nerd. Like how did Boo ever come to appreciate this character.

I like how the Bears all have different reasons for their social awkwardness. Grizz is too outgoing and scares people off, Panda's super nervous, and Ice Bear has difficulty with social cues. They're all relatable in some way.

I got back into Detective Conan after a Magic Kaito binge inspired by watching the 19th Detective Conan movie.

this series is garbage and I love it so much

It will eventually, but it might as well hit the 1,000 mark before it does since it's practically there

Still doing Supernatural occasionally. Going to start into the rest of Ash vs the Evil Dead since I saw the pilot, just checked on it and was surprised to see it's got a bunch more episodes out. Gravity Falls had me convinced new episodes release once a year.

Steven Bomb #4 is upon us. Just got to SU--"The Answer" after missing it last night. It was really sweet, and nice. If I were physically capable of squeeing over anything other than my nieces, I might well have done. Too bad I'm so manly (*flexes noodle arms*)

"Oh, hey, look, Hulu is recommending that I watch this show with Shin Min Ah in it. I don't normally like dramas, but I haven't seen her in anything for quite a while, and I have a bit of time to spare, so why not?"

"Wait, she's playing a high school student? She's like 30. Well, okay. I mean, she clearly looks older than everyone else, but she's a good actress, so I'll keep watching. It's probably a flashback or something."

"This High School swimmer guy moved from Seoul to Daegu to 'scout' her because he saw her in a magazine and thought she was beautiful? So what if he's handsome and on the National swim team. Stalker alert! Stalker alert! Call the cops!"

"No, don't tell me she actually likes this creepy guy who is clearly stalking her. Yuck."

"Flash forward to the future. Ah, so she is playing an adult. Thank god."

"Wait, now we have her in a fat suit talking how her life fell apart as she chased her goals to become a lawyer? And she's looking at photos she took with creepostalkerman? **** this."

Time elapsed before rage-quit: 10 minutes, 4 seconds. I think that might be a new record.

Mostly reality TV. Every scripted show I try to watch gets cancelled. The Biggest Loser, Shark Tank, Undercover Boss, Gold Rush, Alaska: The Last Frontier, Naked and Afraid. I didn't realize Discovery had interesting shows, but I've been watching them a lot on YouTube (DNews, etc.) and then started watching on TV one day. Big Brother/Survivor/The Amazing Race/Got Talent when they come back. Big Brother Canada starts soon. The Mole Netherlands, apparently the only version of the show that is not dead. Just got done watching The Apprentice UK. I guess I'll give the American one a shot when it comes back and the governor of California takes over for President Trump, who completely jumped the shark last season.

Last Man Standing. I was really looking forward to a TGIF revival, but it's not happening. Gave up on Dr. Ken after less than an episode.

Was watching Heroes Reborn, but it's pretty obvious that's going to be cancelled, though I will finish up watching it eventually.

Galavant because Once Upon a Time is on winter break. Dreadful ratings. It's stunning that it got renewed.

Girl Meets World because Boy Meets World.
Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.

Heroes Reborn has been promoted as a miniseries from the start, so I don't think they're expecting renewal.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
