Fleishman is in Trouble
I started watching Hulu’s Fleishman is in Trouble. Can’t say I like any of the characters. They’re all so annoying but I’m intrigued by the story . I’ve heard a lot of good things about the show, and I’ve always liked Jesse Eisenberg’s performances so I’ll be sticking with the show despite my mixed response to it thus far.
Frosty the Snowman
I’m obsessed with the 1969 TV special Frosty the Snowman. It never feels like the holiday season has begun until we sit down to watch the classic. So after watching it tonight, the 2022 holiday season can officially begin. 🙂
“Sam Malone, kiss your butt goodbye.”
After binging Breaking Bad over the summer, Joshua wanted to watch BoJack Horseman, the adult animated series about a washed up actor/horse. We watched the first two episodes last night, the pilot and BoJack Hates the Troops. The latter is one of my favorite episodes of the series. Stubborn BoJack gets into an argument at a grocery store with a an entitled Navy Seal over a box of muffins which culminates in a showdown between the two on live TV. It makes some interesting points about automatic hero worship without regard to a person’s true character.
BoJack Hates the Troops
BoJack: Maybe some of the troops are heroes but not automatically. I’m sure a lot of the troops are jerks. Most people are jerks already, and it’s not like giving a jerk a gun and telling him it’s okay to kill people suddenly turns that jerk into a hero.
The episode was also ahead of its time in regard to cancel culture. The world becomes outraged when BoJack won’t agree to call the Neal McBeal, the Navy Seal, a hero, on the sole basis of his service to his country, and the showdown is summarized by man as “BoJack hates the troops,” which spreads like wildfire.
I warned Josh that BoJack Horseman starts a little slow, but he was into the show right away. He probably would’ve watched more than two episodes last night if his brother hadn’t already reserved the big screen to watch the Artemis watch.
Cobra Kai Eve
My kids are seriously more excited on Cobra Kai Eve than they were on Christmas Eve.
They’re getting up every few minutes and asking what time it is and if they can watch just one episode before they go to sleep.
A Very Brady Christmas
I showed the kids a holiday classic today.
Ashley has begged to watch Glee for months. We put it off because it’s not streaming for free anywhere, and we were annoyed at having to purchase episodes. But she kept begging so we finally bought season 1 for her to watch.
After watching the pilot…
1) She’s insisting Jane Lynch played Dory in Finding Nemo
2) This show is already dated in some ways.
3) I cannot believe three of these kids from this show are already dead.
Me: Oh no! This is the final season of PEN15. I’m so sad!
Joey: That’s too bad.
