The whole cast of Doom Patrol is excellent. Brendan Fraser though is killing it on a different level as Robotman. OMG, he is awesome.

I’m looking forward to seeing Hobbes & Shaw. It seems like they are truly embracing the silliness of the Fast & Furious franchise.

Watching Detour from 1945 on Criterion. It's a 70 minute noir movie and we've spent half of the first 8 minutes with a musical number.

Old Hollywood was weird.

I hate the show New Amsterdam. It always makes me cry. And I am joking, this is one of the shows from this season that I look forward to each week. It does make me ready eyed each week though.

I like this seasons new show The Rookie, this season has been very uneven. The season finale was a good example of this. It could have been so much better, but it was a strange disorganized episode. The weird wedging of Nolan’s love life in the middle of the crisis was bizarre. The same with Lopez’s relationship. I hope the show finds a better groove next season.

The fake muzzle flashes in The Rookie are so bad that they are a distraction from the tension of an action scene.
