Netflix and a Series of Unfortunate Events

Netflix has been dominating the streaming television market. It’s hard to believe that just 10 years ago I was subscribing to their DVD mail service. They are not only dominating the streaming market with movies and syndicated television series, but also with their own series. I have already expressed my enthusiasm for Jessica Jones and now I have a new series that I must tell you about. Lemony Snicket and a Series of Unfortunate Events, starring Neil Patrick Harris and Patrick Warburton. It is the same Lemony Snicket story from 2004 starring Jim Carrey.

DC is Rivaling Marvel with The Flash

Granted not all of the “hacks” the main character performs are technically feasible (i.e. a brute force password script cannot complete within 2 minutes using only two pieces of personal minutia- ex: favorite baseball team and pets name).

So ends another one of my favorite TV series. I had watched Psych from the first episode to the last. I feel so sad when a show ends because the characters become such a part of your life that it’s finale feels like a chapter in your own life has closed; but a show can’t go on forever (unless you’re the Simpsons). I’m going to miss the Wednesday Psych-Out’s (which were some of my favorite parts of the show), the variety of ridiculous partner names given to Gus and Shawn’s ADD riddled commentary which, allegedly, have been described multiple ways. Be warned, if you haven’t [… Click to Continue …]
