Tonight's movie was The Hate U Give (2018). This is a powerful movie about racial inequality. Amandla Stenberg is a star.

If you haven't seen this film, you must.

Hulu is where I stream most of my TV, so this news is good news for The Orville. I can't wait to watch the third season of this show, it's of the best sci-fi shows. The second season was so good.

I like how CNO/Captain Chandler is slowly evolving into Captain Kirk. A cowboy at sea.

Outside of the political stuff, The Last Ship sometimes feels to me like Star Trek, but on Earth and at sea.

The character Jacob Barnes on The Last Ship is annoying and a horrible throwback to the 80s character Richard Thornburg from Die Hard. An unrealistic characterization of a report.

It's weird hearing Miley Cyrus singing a reworked version of NIN's Head Like A Hole... But, it kinda works and is pretty good.

A good description of CW's Pandora. The list of shows in which I cannot make it through their pilot episodes is short. Pandora made it onto that list last night.

As a manager, I too say "no" because this is completely wrong. When we feel sad, it should be: sudo rm -rf /

On The Last Ship, my favorite character is Tex because he's funny and down to earth. But, Wolfman is a total badass and fun to watch when he fights hand-to-hand.

I just tried to get through the premiere of CW's new show Pandora and couldn't finish it. It is a terrible mish mash of different better sci-fi franchises. It feels like the show creator was trying to mix Star Wars with Star Trek in order to create a Star Fleet Academy show. The stilted acting, generic sets and cringy dialogue doesn't help either.

This exactly:

"To me, it appears that the current Netflix strategy is akin to throwing spaghetti at the wall and seeing what sticks. Every now and then I come across Netflix original content that is very well done, but more often than not, the shows/movies they produce seem second rate."

I'm looking forward to Joker this year. It looks super interesting.

Tonight's movie was Stuber (2019). It was an entertaining, yet forgettable 93-minute Uber commercial.
