Currently watching anything and everything
I watch a lot of things on Netflix. I've just caught a new series called "No Tomorrow", it's an hour long romantic comedy about a girl who meets this guy who is trying to spread the word that an asteroid is headed to Earth and they only have 8 months until the apocalypse. At any rate, few people believe him but he keeps trying. In the meantime, he is improving everybody's life by getting them to do things they've always wanted to.
I think it's a cute show and don't tell anybody but I lust after Evie... oh my!
check it out.
I love that line "this is safe right?". "Not if you are doing it right" lol.
This show suprised me. I had it on my list for a while and just watched it. There's only one season on Netflix so I don't know if there will be more.
I'm always looking for new series I haven't seen.
Star Trek: Catspaw 1967
I have been meaning to watch that but forgot about it until now. I will download a few episodes online. She is HOT too ...
Watching NCIS new episode right now but am looking forward to "faceoff" later.
Just watching "The Wall", people can be soooo greedy !!!
I'm watching four (4) channels of my Dish Porn & wearin nothin but a Harley T-shirt & a Boner w/a lubed up toy pussy on it Anybody wana watch or suck it or fuck around west central Nebraska today?
The last Boy Scout is a great movie
Robbie Coltrane's Critical "107" --he was in a good series in the 90s, I forget the name at this time
"This is Us", "Blue Bloods", and "Big Bang Theory". That's it. Have watched most of the "series" Netflix, HBO, etc. have to offer and with the exception of "Vikings" have found all of them pretty bad. The acting, even in the Brit. offerings, often leaves a lot to be desired (it sucks!), the writing tends toward a 10 year-old reading level (save the the nudity which doesn't push the story ahead but burns up time), the cinematography is too often digital (flat as my workbench -- perfectly flat) and the directing which depends too, too much on people not speaking to each other as much as a double or a caricature to save time. Movie lovers might remember the tiff between Rod Steiger and Marlon Brando over just this very thing. In the GREAT cab scene Rod Steiger sat in for every Brando shot so that Brando could play off the real character and Brando refused to sit in for Steiger's scenes. Brando was not a giving actor. Steiger believed Brando's actions caused Steiger to not win the Oscar. He did not "carry" other actors very often. Brando would ask actors in his scenes to let him write his lines on their faces! I have never heard of him letting other actors write their lines on his face.
Good review, and historical insight. I think tv here leaves ` a lot to be desired' too. Who can say when the decline in writing could be seen as pandemic?I would say, sometime in the late 80s, certainly by 10 years later. I wear myself out with channel surfing, watching all too often, parts of shows. Netflix promos have only a small appeal to my demographic imco
I watched a couple episodes of "This Is Us" and it is really well written ... I adore Mandy Moore. I will binge watch it this summer maybe.
Love Blue Bloods and talk with Donnie a couple times a year since they opened Wahlbergers in Canada. Stopped watching Big Bang years ago although have seen the odd episode or a few minutes of them over the years. Sheldon's role got old after a few seasons and Leonard is such a pussy I just want to slap some testosterone into him lol.
Watching Fight Club on a vodka mission to oblivion.
Have I broken the first rule?
Criminal Minds: Alpha Male
once again, I find some of the writing irksome, with regard to the generalizations about men! Sure, they are crims' here but we all rate the opposite sex, but here on this show, you have the man-hater JJ (one episode proved this to me!) and a blob of politics from the Fem Left!
So much like the real sick world itself, and why channel surfing wears me out. I would like to throttle some of these writers(mostly men?!) that write this crap, and continue to alienate the real men that are still out there. Not that I am a `joe hollywood' alpha male type.
I have had the tv on "slice" (chick channel) all day I think and am watching (or looking over at periodically anyway) "The Devil Wears Prada" for the tenth time since it came out lol.
I have heard of Slice(do not get it, though a handful of shows hold some interest to me), I do not understand what you get out of TDWP, maybe it relates to your work experience, past or present?
My ex-wife was a runway model so I like to watch films like that to fact check lol. Plus I would take a bullet for Anne Hathaway ... and love Emily Blunt as well.
It is even more cutthroat than they make it out to be ...
I have always liked that show and was happy when Paget Brewster came back to the show this season. There is just something sooooo fucking hot about her.
AJ Cook read for a part in a movie that I partly financed a few years ago but didn't get the part, we were to far apart on the contractual end. I have talked to her a few times since then though and you would never know it by the show she plays on but she is a LDS and moved to the Mormon State years ago.
I sometimes forget your experience, thank you for your insight, jpt, I look forward to reading more. If the opportunity ever arose, I
would like to become a screen-writer, and maybe even do some small acting jobs.
Paget Brewster...oooh, one of my fave girls on the tube, 9.5 to 9.7 on the `richter scale' next to perfect. Interesting insight about both actresses (I am glad PB is back!)
Paget Brewster, 47!
One bit of insight, if you aspire to screenwrite you don't necessarily need to have a script to get noticed just a concept can be enough for you to be able to "shop it around" with the hope that someone will pick up the "option" on it. If you have a sellable idea certain people can finance you to bring the script to life BUT be careful as you will be selling your soul to that person if they want creative control over the concept and you will end up writing around them more than for yourself if not careful. It is a good way to "cut your teeth" though but not many producers that I know like to admit that it wasn't their idea LOL.

... Who knows bro, we are always looking for interesting scripts to produce but we are a long way from "box office" but do make a lot of films for SyFy and Hallmark as well as some independent releases and have won Sundance Awards in the past with a couple ... we are starting to attract some "marquee" attention and some bigger Canadian names have worked with us over the years as well as some promising young actors from Canada, USA, UK and Australia.
I can die a happy man when Rachel McAdams does one of our films LOL.
Film is why I switched from criminal law to entertainment law a few years ago.
A lawyer? Wow, my sis is one too! She started out with `human rights' and then went on to other areas, such as working for the govt, territorial and federal now, I believe.
thanks very much for the background here, some of what you wrote I already suspected. I will keep my options open, should the opportunity arise, cheers!
Try to avoid writing a script around kids or animals too if possible, they are a nightmare to work with LOL.
I am actually watching one of the earlier films on tv that I funded and I am glad we learned from our mistakes. It's a stinker LOL.
Now? Bruce Willis in `Live Free or Die Hard'
Ya I watched that yesterday as well. It never gets old.
Goodfellas 1990 -- now an `old movie'
`Funny how? What's funny about it? ...funny like I'm a clown, to amuse you...'
In my all time top 10 for certain
I have a good war flick cued up but am kind of in the mood for a chick flick LOL.
Btw if anyone is interested, putlock.is is back up and running due to a technicality ...
I've been watching this old series called "Better Off Ted" once more on Netflix. It's a bizaare show about a corporation and the crazy people that work there. This was the first time I noticed Portia de Rossi and I thought she was hot. Then I found out she's Ellen's wife.
Anyway, there's only two seasons but it's pretty funny. Check it out.
Rectify: thrill ride -new series, to me, not bad so far
Hitler:The Rise and Fall - `The Downfall' 2016
Stargate Atlantis `The Seer' 2007
