    I just watched the Tomorrow War on Prime, enjoyed it quite a bit! And now I'm binging Season 4 of A Handmaid's Tale on Hulu.

    I give The Tomorrow War on Amazon Prime a thumbs up too. I watched it yesterday and it was surprisingly good. I want to see Black Widow on Disney+, but they're charging an extra $30 premium and it won't be available on the regular Disney+ until Oct.6 so I'm going to wait. LOL

    I just finished GLOW on Netflix. Currently my main shows are Nurse Jackie and Monk on Amazon (had to pay for Jackie, though), Lupin on Netflix, and still working through Deep Space 9 on Hulu.

    I loved GLOW. I’m so sad it won’t be back.

    Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness

    Netflix, animated, 4 eps. 30 mins each

    My fondness lies with Mila Jovovich more than Resident Evil and she is no where to be found.

    You need a small amount of knowledge of the movies or games. Just the basics though.

    It was fine. Glad the episodes were 1/2 hr only.

    Watching movies and reading books are similar for me in that once started, I must finish it, no matter how bad. Well Cosmic Sin (2021) on Netflix staring Bruce Willis is one that I wish I would've changed my policy. Oh this movie sucked! Bad acting & bad effects. 500 years in the future and they are still using shotguns! Oh, this was a turkey!

    I am the same way about books, but I can leave a movie or television show very easily, Probably because the books I read are better vetted. The only book that came near that I can think of is Pet Cemetery by Stephen King, I threw it down and swore I wouldn't pick it up at least 10 times before I finished it. Never read Stephen King again, after enjoying his books for years.

    I don't even really remember, it was over 30 years ago, I do remember it took me over 6 months to finish it. The feelings I attach to it are disgust and malaise, I was in my thirties, had been reading Science Fiction, Fantasy, and some Horror for 20+ years, so I was no Rookie.

    I used to be adamant about finishing a book I started but gave that up about 15 yrs ago because life is too short and there are too many things for me to read out there! Depending on the book, I might go back and try again, and with some long non-fiction (I love biographies) I might read a couple other books at the same time, but I no longer feel any guilt when I decide a book (or tv show or movie) just aren't interesting to me.

    Peacock hasn't been streaming here lately (not loading, rather) which is annoying as hell. Just signed up for HBO Max and started Hacks this weekend (it was one of the main reasons I wanted to get HBO this year). As I mention all the time, we do have to ration data and right now we're just under 50% of the billing cycle but over 50% of our data use. (we live remotely, satellite internet is our only option, we have the highest level data plan and it's not all that much AND it's expensive. We've only been able to stream ANYTHING since 2019. Joy of living in the country ;-) Upside is I can garden naked if I want and no one will see me....

    Not Netflix (still a major “dvds from the library” nerd) but just re-watched “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”. Now watching “Happy Cleaners”

    On the topic of books, I too was one of those who would start multiple books and put them down without completing them if I got bored, or when something more interesting popped up. I sometimes would have 6 or 7 books in various states of completeness.

    During the Pandemic, one of the things I changed in my life was to commit to reading one book at a time. I started to utilize an account on Goodreads.com to list and prioritize the books I want to read which does a great job of giving visibility to what lies ahead. I now feel better organized and comfortable with my reading list and feel that I can appreciate the books much more when I am able to focus on one and only one at a time...

    My goal for 2021 is to read 26 books (avg 1 every 2 weeks), and have completed 16 as of today with 10 to go, this new approach has worked wonders for me.

    I read constantly. Always have. I read while doing everything else ;-) Reading more than one book at a time doesn't mean I don't finish them - for me, a book has to be pretty bad (to me) not to just power through. But sometimes I need variety immediately (magazines also fit in that category - I subscribe to many paper - yes paper - magazines too ;-)

    I'm on my 3rd book and 2nd magazine this week :) But I am waaaaaaay behind on magazines - I'm only up to Dec 2020! I could barely read much at the start of quarantine....I'm catching up though!

    TREAD on Netflix.
    Excellent!

    I was a voracious reader.
    Now I read more e-books and audio books than actual PAPER books.

    Santa Clarita Diet: S2. Watched S1 on my recent flights to/from Vegas so I had to continue it, even though I've already seen the series multiple times.

    The fiancée and I just started Outlander on Netflix. Where have we been? Never heard of this show until we saw it on there. It’s fantastic so far!

    I've read all the Outlander books a couple times and adore but fear watching the show, even though it's so popular and the author approves. It's hard for me to watch adaptations of favorite works!
