WandaVision had many fine elements, but in the end, they didn't quite add up for me, personally.

WandaVision is up for 23 Emmys, but did this Marvel series deliver on its promise to reinvent the MCU?

It started out well, but by the end it was another CGI fight. Though a lot of it had to do with the pandemic.

Every time I watch What We Do in the Shadows on Hulu it'll play Baskets and I think it's what I'm gonna watch next. Though I've also started YuYu Hakusho

I've been watching ONey Plays on youtube and one of the regular guests is Zach Handel (AKA PsychicPebbles). He is incredibly funny and does amazing voice work and impressions on the show. I found out yesterday that Adult Swim gave him a show called "Smiling Friends" and they aired the pilot for it back on April Fools Day and he is suppose to get a full season.  It looks like his personal art style too so I am wondering if he animated it. I watched the pilot and if you are familiar with his humor, it really does seem like something he wrote on the fly. The show is about two guys that work for a company that goes to sad people with the goal of making them smile. In the episode they are sent by their creepy boss to help a guy that is depressed. Their client is at the end of his rope (he literally has a gun to his own head the entire episode) when the duo show up and I was delighted that the person they were helping was voiced by Mike Stoklasa (of RedLetterMedia) whose voice perfectly matched the character. There is also a B plot where a friend of theirs has noticed someone is stealing his cheese and tracks down a bunch of weird pests which ends up being the resolution to the A plot. It is beyond weird, it is morbid, and I found it funny. If your a familiar with or a fan of Zach's humor then I think you may find it enjoyable, but otherwise it may not be your cup of tea.

So, we've been watching this kids show from Australia thats on Disney + called "Bluey." Its honestly the best kids show I've seen in awhile, especially as a parent. Its about a family of blue heeler dogs. Bandit the dad, Chili the mom, Bingo the little sister and Bluey the daughter. Its surprisingly good and has involved, relatable, and fun parent characters as well. Its given myself so many cool ideas as a dad when playing with the kids and new children songs I never knew but my kids enjoy. Season 3 came out but isn't available on D+ yet and wont be until next year so we are not getting our fix. My wife found out a couple of spoilers involved with season 3 and its kind of interesting that the parent community seems to be so head over heelers for the show. Seasons 1 and 2 are amazing though. There are also a couple of episodes D+ banned but we were able to watch them on Amazon Prime (one where the dad pretends to be pregnant with Bingo and has a water birth thanks to the neighbor, and another where they talk about the dad's teasing). I've also heard some non parents really dig the show too.

My wife and I have fallen in love with Bluey and have watched every episode. Our daughter isn't old enough to enjoy it, but she does love the music. My wife broke into tears from the Baby Race episode, and I keep telling my wife she needs to get me this shirt

Haha, yeah. "Baby Races" was a great episode and made my wife cry too. It really has that "one, two, punch" with Coco's mom and then the ending in the kitchen. "Take Away" is very relatable when managing two board kids in public. Also "Sleepy Time" with Bandit. Thats pretty much a nightly occurrence for me.


I also like that, as an adult watching, you can tell the adults drink alcohol without them expressly saying so. Like the wives (and probably guys) during "Stump Fest." It doesn't shy away from the realistic while also playing up the fantasy of the dog-world. If you haven't yet, check out the Bluey Youtube channel. They have some shorts that are not on D+. I like the one with Stripes and his kids.

This week I found out there's a Robin Hood anime from the 90's. It's one of those cases of 'please just look for the sub' because the English dub is BAD. The whole thing is on YT though, if you're interested.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

Super-feminist, super-queer, super-inclusive, tightly written, glorious, heart-wrenching, hilarious in equal measure. We watched the whole five seasons quite recently all the way through, and it is just a truly magnifient show. Watch the shit out of it, friends. If nothing else, the animation is glorious.

Yes to all of this, and with an incredible and satisfying soundtrack, just in case it wasn't enough.
