    We just canceled cable. Garbage and a waste of money. I can’t stand advertisements either.

    lots of good miniseries and films out there.

    It would kind of be like Brad Pitt coming to an end in Legends of the Fall. Only thing is, you're probably too gristly now even for a grizzly. He'd be like aw man, why do I do it? I know those darned things are too gristly to eat, I coulda ruined my chompers!

    I watched a great show last night about a French guy who was deeply interested in Japanese woodblock prints. He’d done a bunch of self-study, and was figuring out stuff on his own, but he wanted to see how the real dudes did it. He applied to this show, and was chosen for a sponsored trip to Japan. They brought him over to Japan and introduced him to old-school guys who specialized in cutting the woodblocks, inking and pressing the paper, and even making the handheld geegaws for pressing the paper smoothly against the blocks. He was SO excited to see how it was done, and the artisans were touched by his interest and passion. Then he went home and over the next four years he became REALLY GOOD at making woodblock prints. He’s in museums and everything now. He sent some samples back to the guys in Japan and they were flabbergasted by how much he’d improved in what is such a short time for traditional artists.

    There have been a few other cool episodes of this show, where people who are interested in some aspect of traditional Japanese culture are brought in from overseas and they meet artists and craftspeople who are sometimes the last folks doing this work, then they go back home and do amazing stuff with it. I saw this one woman who was fascinated by tabi (the socks people wear with geta slippers when they wear kimono). You’d be amazed by the thought and planning that goes into custom-fitting those... And some others about textile dyeing, paper making, etc. were really cool.

    No TV post on a music site would be complete without

    Or


    I wonder how Frank Zappa would see things today?

    We’ve been watching movies on Tubi it’s free, better movies than Netflix or Prime. Quirky, lots of music documentaries and movies based around music

    When we had cable, our mantra was "200 channels of feces on the TV". That went away when we cut the cord. Now, faced with even more titles available on a whim via streaming services, we still can't find something to watch. And our families wonder why we spend so much time in our music rooms...

    Would definitely be disturbed by US 24 hour infotainment.

    I thought I might like that show based on the premise but that last episode looked like a bad film student who was just learning editing hacked it up. I'm not sure I'll continue watching.

    You might like Resident Alien on SyFy.

    A Reboot coming? I will have to look that up.
    Live or animated?

    I was kidding but I suspect that such a reboot is sitting on the desk of some Hollywood exec who can't come up with an original idea. I think this is particularly likely after other live action gritty reboots of 60's cartoon series, such as cartoon Archies becoming the teen drama Riverdale.

    It seems gone are the days of quality network TV programs like ..... “NYPD Blue”.
    Now our choices are mainly between fake Reality TV and insipid Game shows.
    There isn’t one network program that I watch.
    (I see this years “Grammys” ratings were down 50%)
