Where did September go, guys? Anyway, it’s chilly and rainy here and I’m loving it.
I know a couple of you guys were on the fence about Maniac, the new show on Netflix. Is anyone else watching?
I have finished 4 episodes, and I’m definitely going to keep watching. I am very intrigued by the concept, and overall, I think the performances are good. The pacing seems weird and there are a few scenes and/or characters that are silly and/or annoying.
Episode 4 was not all that wonderful in my opinion, but I loved how it ended. I wont go into spoilers, but your opinion of this episode will probably depend on how much you like Emma Stone and Jonah Hill playing an alternate version of their characters. I like both of them as actors, but I felt the episode was a lot of build up. To be fair, the way it ended made the rest seem mostly worth watching.
Also, the whole Ad Buddy concept is a delight to watch, but I hope that doesn’t happen in real life.
No, because I’ve been waiting for your thumbs up or thumbs down! Now I’ll check out the first episode at least. I wanted to do a TV talk this week to share my thoughts on the Magnum PI reboot, which is my responsibility as the exact demographic much for such an endeavor, but I’ve been so swamped. Maybe I’ll wait for episode 2 and post it next week.
My Tuesday class went much better last night than the first week, which was a big relief. Whereas in week one 75% of the 35-person cohort interrupted with stupid questions, there are now only 6 troublemakers. But these 6 people interrupted presentations no fewer than 4 times each. Can you imagine doing that?!
I got up early to play tennis but my friend stood me up which was a bummer. He overslept, which happens, but like I could have used more sleep, too. So much work to do right now that the days are flying by. In fact I should go now. See you guys later.
