I Miss Game of Thrones

July start date is unacceptable.  I have grown so used to watching the show this time of year.

Now that Walking Dead is over, what should I watch on Sunday nights?  Any suggestions?

Saturday Night Live is Getting Useless

Hey 3.5 readers.

BQB with a complaint here.  It seems lately that SNL has averaged like one show a month, if that.  I haven’t sat down and figured out how long it is between shows, but it has been weeks since there has been a new one and that happens all the time.

WTF?  It used to be that whenever a news story broke, you could go, “Oh, I bet SNL will have fun with that” but now by the time they do a new show the story is old news.

I’m not sure what the deal is.  Maybe the actors are all working on movie deals, maybe everyone wants time off or something, I don’t know.  All speculation on my part.

It just seems incredibly lame to me that they can’t do better than this.  There should be a show every Saturday.

I’ve wondered if the Internet has had an impact on this.  Perhaps people don’t stay up for SNL anymore because of it.  However, for me, I watch SNL now more than ever because of the Internet.  I just go right to YouTube and watch whatever sketches I want.  I don’t know if that hurts their bottom line though I feel like there’s got to be some ad revenue even in posting sketches in the web.  I like it because I don’t have to stay up late and can watch whatever I want and skip over whatever seems lame.

Just a complaint I’m putting out into the universe.  A lot is happening in the world and SNL is missing out on it.

The Walking Dead Recap – Season 7, Episode 16 – Season 7 Finale – “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life”

Wowie zowie, 3.5 readers.  All I can say is:

mknight

What a twist!  So many twists in this episode and they were all very unexpected.

I won’t spoil it with the details, but it was the best episode of the entire series.  My only worry is I don’t know if they will ever be able to top it.  I hope it’s not all downhill from here.

What say you, 3.5 readers?

Movie Trailer – The Mummy (2017)

Hey 3.5 readers.

Have you checked out the trailer for The Mummy reboot?

I gotta be honest, The Mummy and it’s first sequel were two of my favorite films from, sigh, “the turn of the century,” if we have to get technical.  They were full of fun and whimsy and Brendan Fraser was an atypical nerdy hero.

Thus, I’m kind of surprised that Tom Cruise was picked as the young buck to replace Fraser, given that, as far as I know, Cruise is older than Fraser.

And in theory, a new movie about The Mummy doesn’t necessarily have to be considered reboot.  Hollywood was making movies about mummies long before the Brendan Fraser outing, after all.

Anyway, it looks hella legit and if it is half as good as the trailer then it will be considered shelf-worthy.
