What are you watching?

I watched the first episode of Schmigadoon.  Love the way they sneak in quotes from historic shows. I spotted a dance move and some music from Carousel, but I do know Carousel backwards and there was probably lots of other references I missed.

1. Friday Night Lights. I'm gonna start shilling like crazy for this show. When I first heard they were turning the movie into a TV show, I figured it would end every week with the team hitting the

oh, damn, i didn't know that. now i'm depressed--i really liked that show.

Here you go -   At the time I wrote that the show was being broadcast on WLIW. It appears to be out of the rotation right now but should be available on Netflix.

White Lotus still spot on. But, my goodness, Stiffler's Mom (American Pie) has not aged well. And who ever is doing her injectables should not ever has access to needles again 😱

Saw the first 2 episodes of Small Town News KPVM Pahrump on HBO.  It claims to be a documentary about life at a small town Nevada television station not far from Las Vegas.  Certainly the editing is critical to maintaining the looney aspects of the station and its employees.  Amusing for sure but not as outre as say Tiger King.  https://www.hbo.com/small-town-news-kpvm-pahrump

Watched the first episode of the reboot of "Fantasy Island."  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13784584/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Mr. Roarke has now become Ms. Roarke.  The show (at least the exteriors) are now shot in Puerto Rico.  Production values are higher than before.  The part of Ms. Roarke belongs to Rosalyn Sanchez, a Puerto Rican native.  Tattoo is gone.  Instead his functions seem supplanted by Kiara Barnes in the role of an apparently bisexual assistant, Ruby Akuda.  For all the changes and upgrades, the show lacks the campiness of the original.

It had its moments.  The first episode had to carry a lot of freight introducing characters who might be somewhat contrary to your expectations.  It has potential, but will it fulfill it?

The Chair. Three episodes in, I'm still not sure I like it. Mostly because I have never found Jay Duplass even remotely appealing, and the series is asking me to believe that everyone else thinks he's just dreamy. I had the same problem with Transparent, but he wasn't so central to that show.

I liked the music. There's a song about the oxford comma that was kind of funny.

I was cajoled into watching the Academy Award winning animation, "Spirited Away."  It's a little over 2 hours.  The story seems part Alice in Wonderland, part Wizard of OZ and some Disney schmaltz.  But it knows its sources and how to use them.  And Suzanne Pleshette does one of the voices in the dubbed version.  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0245429/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
